Tiffany HardWear Collection

via GIPHY

When I first received the invite to attend a preview party for Tiffany’s new ‘HardWear’ jewelry line, my first thought was that I’d be way too tired to drive all the way in to the city for an evening event. Honestly, since Sophia’s birth I haven’t really ventured out of the house too often. I considered declining and therefore maintaining my slightly embarrassing 8:30 p.m. bedtime routine, but after some consideration, my desire to see this very much talked about collection up close and personal outweighed my concerns. So I forced myself to go, despite feeling and looking *extra* tired that day.

For those unaware, this collection first launched with a bang during the Superbowl, with an entire 60 second commercial featuring Lady Gaga. The ‘It girl’ factor only continued with major celebs seen wearing the line, including Zoe Kravitz, FKATwigs, Kate Mara, Olivia Wilde, and ScarJo…just to name a few. Chicago’s event was hosted by the fabulous Shalice Noel, a fellow blogger babe and the consummate fashion cool girl.

Overall it’s definitely a departure from the more traditional styles normally associated with the brand. It seems like HardWear is the continuation of Design Director Francesca Amfitheatrof transitioning the brand from classic to modern. Note: This was her last collection before leaving the company, which will now have Designer Reed Krakoff heading the chief artistic officer role.

To me, the pieces are still every bit timeless and elegant as traditional Tiffany & Co, but with a bit of contemporary appeal. I’m certain that it is meant to woo a younger crowd, with pieces like chunky unisex stackable bracelets, statement earrings, and cocktail rings with gold sphere shaped charms. Models were styled with a minimalist flare, including a straight leg crop denim with crisp white button down shirt, and an elegant all black wide leg pant and off shoulder top.

Ultimately the collection is wearable for any generation of jewelry enthusiast, and in case my husband is reading this, I personally would be absolutely thrilled to own any of it. 😉

My  first foray back in to the blogging world definitely did not disappoint. The cocktail party was fun, I got to catch up with friends and industry peeps, aaaand someone even told me that I didn’t look tired at all – which probably the best compliment you can give a new mom!

  • When aunties are way cooler than you...
Took my mom to see her childhood bestie (who happens to live here) and ate up all their stories about life in Pakistan before they had any kids - they were both full-time teachers, obsessed with makeup and fashion, and to my surprise - apparently very big on playing pranks on each other! They would put on a burqa and go knock on doors and scare their friends 😂 (I was like wait - are you still talking about my mom??) I’ll never judge an aunty again...
  • New Zealand. Tree of Life. Countless others...when are we going to acknowledge White Supremacy as what it actually is, TERRORISM. I directly blame Fox News and other major right wing media outlets for influencing these hateful (probably uneducated) people. When we demonize people to the level where they are inhuman (children in cages at the border) we open up the possibility to do the most evil without regard. I hesitated on posting this because I like to keep things light around here - but damn, I realize I really don’t have that privilege...ignoring the news isn’t something I can just do as a brown Muslim woman ~ my family is at the mosque every Friday praying - what I want to know is, what can we do to really make change?? Eff the NRA and all the corporations that benefit off of human suffering!
  • Don’t worry baby girl, what’s mine is yours! (Note the backward shoe in pic 3 😂) #playingdressup #momswithcameras
  • Drove mom all the way out to Devon for some Falooda and shopping - but baby Soph fell asleep and I know better than to mess with her nap time so...in the car I shall stay. #dontwakethebaby #likeever #faloodatogo
  • ‘And this one will make your skin baby soft...’
never too early to start learning proper skincare! (In reality she was trying to grab everything off of every shelf so I had to strap her in the stroller and have my mom take her outside so I could get what I needed 😂 - @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pencil, @theouai wave spray) #lesigh #momlife
  • Happy bday to my little man ~ cheers to 8 years! (And we are officially done with birthdays for the year hallelujah! 🙏🏾)
  • 15 year old Zahra would be so proud of this look ~ story time: I bought this necklace from a lady on the beach in Jamaica who was so sweet - she suggested I buy a toe ring anklet thing and I said my feet are way too ugly for that - she told me I was beautiful and sternly advised me never to say bad stuff about myself again - so I said Awww thank you! ok give me like three more shell necklaces 💁🏾‍♀️ The end.
  • DIY face mask: ingredient: Peanut butter (also yes this was a b* to clean up 😱) #momswithcameras
  • Spending some quality time with my mom this week! I’m pretty sure I got all of my best traits from her ❤️ even the ones that bother her the most...🤭 😊Also a peek at the living room progress - so far we have new paint and a new couch! Currently sourcing gold sconces, a console table for the record player, and wall art and accessories. I love shopping second-hand, vintage and artisan made, where are your favorite places to shop for home?? #internationalwomensday #mothersanddaughters
