It’s a really interesting time of year for me, as a Observant Jew with a large non-Jewish customer base, coming off the back of our main holidays right into the bulk of the Secular main holidays, it is my favorite time of year. It always gets me thinking and feeling awesome things and I can’t help but be all caught up in Holidays, cooler weather and warm fuzzy feelings.
During September and October are the main bulk of the Jewish Holidays, with the Jewish New Year, Days of Atonement and The Festival of Booths we are busy for a full month. Then right around the Gregorian New Year, as winter sets upon us, falls the Chanuka holiday. Even though I don’t celebrate Xmas or the New Year, I still always look forward to Holiday Collections and here is why.
I LOVE winter. Take me any day to a wooden cabin with a fireplace, outside there is a fresh dusting of snow and perfect crisp air. You’ll find me near the warm fire, curled up under a blanket, sipping hot chocolate. Take me to this cabin during Chanukah and I’ll be at the top of the world. Imagine those Chanukah candles twinkling, the children playing dreidel on the floor with some Chanuka music in the background – ah! total serenity.
In short, I love winter, Literally my ideal vacation is just what I described. I love snow – or the idealized version of snow. I definitely do NOT like New York snow – especially when its days old and no longer white – then I despise it.
So – the reason I love Holiday collections is because they almost always feature Snow of some sort and evoke all the good feelings that a vacation in a cabin would evoke. We just got to view the Origami Owl Holiday Collection and oh my word! It’s snowflake galore!
But, before I head into the snowflake display I’m going to first veer off to talk about one of the reasons why I love Origami Owl. Origami Owl always makes sure to take care of ALL their customers. All religions alike! As a Jewish girl who celebrates Chanuka, my heart sings to have some charms especially for us in the collections. O2 is the only direct sales that I know of that creates a part in the holiday collection for Jews a well. The collection this year includes a Menorah and a Mezuzah.
Now on to the snowflakes ahhh! Since living in Brooklyn the chances of going to a cabin are slim, I can live vicariously through the Snowflake collection. It evokes such a warm fuzzy feeling.
First of all the watch plate? I adore my Origami Owl watches (yes I admitted in public that it’s multiple) and ever since O2 had a Join Exclusive plate (before my times) I had been wishing for one to make my watch effortlessly elegant. And my wish came true!
Along with the watch face we have a matching pair of earrings, an INCREDIBLE snowflake locket, a set of 3 snowflake charms, another in the collection of our Leather Swarovski Wraps: The Crystal Light Blue one and our Moonlight Swarovski Crystal Plate. Yup. This Snowflake obsessed girl is drooling.
The locket is accented in Sparkling Clear and Crystal Shade Blue Swarovski Crystals in the intricate snowflake design. This locket is truly a showstopper and in my opinion can be worn from now until the last licks of winter leave. And you can bet I will be 🙂
The leather wrap is just beyond. I can imagine pairing it with a simple black dress, an elegant evening gown or even as an everyday item along with your work clothing!
With the Moonlight plate and the Snowflake charms I will imagine myself sitting on the deck of a wooded cottage, breathing deeply in the crisp night air while gorgeous snowflakes fall and flutter around me.
Now out comes the funky side of me. Along with the Siam Red Collection. Now let’s talk bold and bright! With the Siam Red locket, the Red Velvet Leather wrap which pairs stunning with the Gold Bracelet Bar Locket. Simple. Red. Classic. Earrings and the pendent which can be worn alone or layered!
As much as I love snowflakes I love red. And it has to be the perfect red. Not to bright and not too red. And this one is PERFECTION. It says I’m the life of the party without taking it over.
The locket with its double layer Swarovski Siam Red Crystals is a showstopper. It’s the girl who walks into the party and everyone says hello to her. Along with her comes that wrap in velvety softness. And I dunno about you but Velvet and me are best buds! Ahh can my shipment come already?
We’ve been on vacation and to a fabulous party but now it’s time to get back to reality There is another part of the collection but it’s such an important part that I decided it needed its very own blog post – bookmark this and it’ll be up in the next day or so!
Wishing you all a fabulous holiday season and if you’d love to keep in touch with me my group is the best way!
