Nina’s Bringing Sexy Back (Jewelry)

Nina Cortes Jewelry

{Because your back needs accessories, too}

On New Year’s Eve, I couldn’t help but accost the mysterious stranger wearing this sick back jewelry. The conversation went something like this (but I was 5 champagnes deep, so the next is most likely a figment of my warped imagination):

ME: “Oh-em-gee, LOVE your necklace. It’s so something Beyoncé would wear. Where did you get it? And don’t lie to me and tell me it’s ‘vintage.’ I hate that shit.”

HER: “Thanks! I made it myself.”

I was nonplussed. I adore serendipitously meeting designers — especially Miami-based ones. Turns out the Stunning Lady in Black was Nina Cortes of ninacortesjewelry.com and she’s kind of a big deal because she was on Lifetime’s Project Accessory (a Project Runway spin-off showcasing accessory designers) and Nina came in SECOND PLACE on the show. She was clearly robbed of the big win.

Turns out, the Kendall resident and Killian High graduate is a jewelry making badass and I’m thrilled to share her genius with you. Her shoulder jewelry — epaulettes meant to be worn on bare shoulders — made her a fan favorite on the show. Me? I adore her curious back jewelry.

I loveeeeee! My favorite thing is an exposed back so adding pretty jewelry is most definitely a win.

“And don’t lie to me and tell me it’s ‘vintage.’ I hate that shit.”

ME TOO! So irritating. I can also totally hear your voice saying this to someone haha.
