About Frisk Jewelry ::

During the winter of 2004 Donna, Jessica and Amanda Rubino, a mother and two daughter team, began creating accessories, and soon Frisk Jewelry was born in the heart of Boulder, CO. Growing up near New York City, Donna always had an adoration for, and extensive knowledge about, vintage jewelry. She passed this appreciation of old treasures to her daughters. The ladies combined their love of vintage and fashion in the jewelry. Frisk pieces are stylish, one of a kind, and are each made of countless elements from the 1920s through the 1980s. Soon Frisk was selling at boutiques around the country and appearing in national and local magazines.

In June, 2008 the Rubinos opened Frisk Accessories for Girls and Guys at 1144 13th Street in Boulder. The boutique is located on "The Hill," a retail district near the University of Colorado where both Jessica and Amanda graduated. The 100-year-old historic building is a perfect showcase for Frisk's ever expansive line, including two or three new seasonal collections and the permanent "Classic" collection. Frisk Accessories also carries a select group of incredible local and national designers, which are exclusive to the boutique.

So in love...Anthropologie unveils wedding dresses at BHLDN

It was only a matter of time....
I wasn't surprised at all last week when I saw on Twitter than Anthropologie had unveiled their own line of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and all things wedding at
We are in love.
It's that simple.

Here are some of our favorite things from the BHLDN line:

About BHLDN ::
An understated word with significant meaning charmed us. And so began, BHLDN.
Inspired by the Dutch word for “to keep,” as well as countless tales from family and friends of the extraordinary weddings they’d been part of, we began dreaming up something new.
Our roots are with Anthropologie, so a passion for experience and creating one-of-a-kind moments runs deep. But our offering speaks more to the not-so-everyday occasions—ours is a voice that celebrates a woman’s most anticipated milestones. And one that gives tradition a twist.
We want, more than anything, to help a woman create an event that reflects her own unique perspective… to a tee. We want to give a bride that edit she’s been searching for—with heirloom-quality wedding gowns, artisanal hair adornments, footwear, and lingerie. And we want happy bridesmaids—in mix-and-match frocks with rich hues and unexpected details.
But it goes beyond the dress. Our goal, and the reason we drape, fold, bustle, and stitch, is to start a conversation with our customer—to build a resource where she can come to find inspiration and to share with those closest to her, as well as our broader coterie. BHLDN’s story is unfolding; and we’ll look to our customer for cues and guidance going forward.
There are no checkboxes. No fill-in-the-blanks. On the contrary, we think a moment should be as layered and dimensional as the woman standing within it.
Be you. Be loved. BHLDN
