glitter, glitter everywhere

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Hello there – we hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. Among other things, ours included pancakes, a hilariously harrowing trip to Crate & Barrel that involved a toddler and a several wine glasses and the Survivor finale. Did anyone else not realize that show had been on for twenty four seasons? Is anyone else slightly alarmed at the prospect of feeling old in respect to reality television?

At any rate, we came back to the office today and dove headlong into a few projects that will be coming to fruition soon! What might they be, you ask? Brides! Birthdays! And glitter – so it doesn’t start with a “b” and totally ruins the alliteration, but it is still pretty fabulous. And obsession-worthy – particularly glitter of the gold variety. So here is a quick photo of some pinterest-inspired projects we were tooling around with today, and we’ll be back soon with some big news!

Happy Monday!

our 15 minutes

…or 2 minutes and 54 seconds, as it would be!

While it is not often we find ourselves on the business end of a camera, we were delighted to have our company and office be featured in this interview for CBS MoneyWatch. We think the segment turned out fabulously, and it’s also a great little sneak peek into the inner workings of our design studio!

Happy {albeit it rainy} Tuesday!

 

 

 

 

viv&ingrid in the limelight

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

There are few simple pleasures we here at viv&ingrid enjoy more than that of a good film. There is something so deeply satisfying for us about the movie theater experience, something that goes deeper than our immense love of Junior Mints and a good oversized pretzel {hold the mustard}. Perhaps it is the hush that falls over the room once the opening credits begin and the house lights dim, or the collective reaction of the audience to important moments in the film, but we’re forever in love with the idea of spending a friday night at the movies.

At any rate, we digress. Yes, it is true that we love the movies, and as of today we have one more reason to love them even more. Jennifer Westfeldt’s new film, Friends with Kids, debuts today and is chock full of some viv&ingrid goodness. More than a year ago we were thrilled when we were asked to lend some pieces for the film, but admittedly had not given it more than a passing thought until we saw the trailer make its first appearances online a few months ago. First, we saw the always funny Kristen Wiig doing more than her fair share of justice to our Gold Feather Double Hoops. Then, we see writer/director/co-star Jennifer Westfeldt dazzle in our Purple Jade Belle Earrings and Gold Bijoux Necklace. And the cameos just kept on coming!

We’ve always said it is the talented, smart and successful women who make the viv&ingrid brand what it is, and we could not be happier to see some of our pieces on the likes of  the talented, smart, successful and  funny Westfeldt, Wiig and Maya Rudolph in this movie! In fact, we’re so excited that we couldn’t help but put together a special treat just for all our Oxford Hall customers to come and celebrate the release of this film with us! From now until April 7th, any customer who brings in their ticket stub from Friends with Kids will receive 20% off any jewelry purchase in Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall! And while in store don’t forget to enter our raffle to win one of three special V&I pieces featured in the film! For the fine print, check out the details here on our Facebook page {and while you’re there – like us}!

So come help us celebrate our latest film debut – and don’t forget to check out Friends with Kids in theaters now!
