What's your company name? ikedajones

How do you define your signature style?
Urban chic. I love wearing clean, fashion-forward pieces that have a small twist and attention to detail: a contrast bias, a beautiful mother-of-pearl button, the perfect cuff. A girly tomboy at heart, I'm most comfortable in a boyfriend jean or oversized trouser, a great tee or shirt with some fun detail, and a cool pair of sneakers. I love to have fun and switch it up with a great organza petticoat and button-down shirt for a more playful vibe. 

What's your favorite style tip?
Fit is essential for a piece to look its best and reach its full potential on you. Don’t be afraid to alter.

Who are your ACC show artist picks?

  • Veronika Braslavsky: The modern lines of this piece – along with the intricate detail – make this tunic the perfect thing to wear over a skinny jean or black pencil skirt. The sheer airy, lightness of the fabric keeps it from being heavy.
  • Wolfgang Vaatz: Bangles exude confidence, strength, and power. The elaborate detail of this amazing bracelet is captivating. Worn with a rolled-sleeve blazer or floor-length evening gown, you're sure to turn heads.
  • Brandon Holschuh: A balance of organic and elegant is featured in this stunning stacking ring. The mixed moods and metals make this ring not only a conversation piece, but extremely versatile.
  • Keith Lewis: The stylish simplicity of these earrings make them the final touch to any outfit. I love the texture and how it creates depth and light in each piece differently. Throw on your little black dress or jeans and white tee, and these beauties are the icing on the cake.
  • Cheryl Rydmark: The delicateness of this necklace makes it a great piece to wear every day. Worn alone or layered with other well-loved necklaces, this piece is an easy favorite.
  • Susan Chin: Accessories worn as a statement can elevate any simple look. The unusual mix of natural materials in this contemporary necklace make it a show stopper.
