I’ve always admired those who are able to blend two different styles and create something beautiful and unique. Stormy from Los Angeles-based boutique Leather Wraps manages to do both — and make it all look effortless. Her shop features bohemian-style leather wrap bracelets, leather bangles and leather cuffs. Launched in 2011, Stormy’s inspirations come from fun bohemian style with a classy timeless sophistication. Read on for Stormy’s tips on shopping for jewelry and looking chic for less! xoxo
Tell me a bit about your shop. What’s the inspiration behind its launch?
In my shop, you will find quality, hand-made leather bracelets that I customize to fit my customers. Each bracelet can be sized for a perfect fit for anyone. My inspiration for my designs comes from jewelry style that lasts yet it’s also edgy and modern at the same time. I feel that my leather bangles capture this style.
What are some trends we’re seeing as we move into the fall?
What are some of your favorite fashion trends? Leather is a huge trend this fall and more dark colors, such as greys and plums.
What are some things people should keep in mind when shopping for jewelry?
Really, it’s about your own personal style and what you may want to wear that day. Being unique is so edgy in itself. I try to have a large selection of colors for the simple reason that each person is unique and has their own likes when it comes to color.
What are some ways that people can still look chic for less?
First, start out with a style that you love, then shop sales, use coupons, look for free shipping. It all pays off. I offer free shipping worldwide, and I keep my prices as low as possible so everyone can enjoy!
What is your favorite piece in your shop and why?
My favorite pieces are the Leather Bangles. They just go with everything, and you can mix and match and stack them. The best part is that I can make them fit just perfectly for me so they don’t fall too low as I have a smaller wrist.
