In the year and a half since the collection has launched, I have met so many amazing women who have worn my pieces. As a way of giving back to the community, I want to feature some of these women who have set their own standards of beauty and grace through their own self expression, personality, and strength of character. I asked each of them to define beauty for us so that we might gain some insight into these incredible women.
This installment of LACE’s "Celebration of Women" series features Adria Tennor, the co-owner of Barbix Wine Bar, All'Acqua Restaurant and Market Provisions as well as an accomplished actor, writer and director. We had such a good time at our photoshoot that, in the photo series, I wanted to capture some of the goofy moments of the shoot.
"I've always found people to be the most beautiful and attractive - I like to say, 'shiny' - when they're being authentically themselves – living in their own joy, their own glee, their own bliss – doing what they're good at doing, doing what they love, and getting off on it, and then sharing that exuberance with others in an authentic, true way - singing a song, cooking a meal, buying stocks, whatever. Listening to one's heart and following it bravely is a really sexy, beautiful way to be, a really sexy, beautiful way to live. And if that bliss connects back to the world and makes it a better, more beautiful place to live, even in the tiniest way, that's good icing on the beauty cake." - Adria Tennor
Adria is wearing Lini earrings and the Prelude and Interlude choker in sterling silver.
