Q&A with Camila Echavarria

We were excited to catch up with Camila Echavarria, for Sylca Designs, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd. Here is what she shared with us about her dazzling jewelry!

What three words best describe your line?
Bold, Colorful, Lightweight.

What has been your inspiration this season?
We did a lot of pinks and blues this season. Spring always reminds us of flowers and sunny skies, and this is why this year our spring collection is dominated with these two color tones. These colors look great on whites, creams, and light greys so we thought they would pair well with spring colors.

What is your favorite piece from your collection and why?
Our favorite piece is our signature 4 layer wooden necklace – this necklace is so easy to wear with almost everything in our closet. You can dress it up or down. On the weekends we wear this piece with jeans, a white t-shirt and cute sneakers, but we also wear it for date night with a little black dress and high heals!

How do you view your personal style?
Casual chic – we love comfort but like to look great at the same time! You can often catch us with a pair of tights and a nice over size plain shirt with asymmetrical elements accented by one of our statement necklaces.

Do you have recommendations on styling items from your collection?
Jewelry is the last step before going out the door. We recommend to wear our pieces with simple tops where the necklace can really be the center of attention. Like a piece of art the shirt should be the canvas and the necklace the focal point.

If you could provide one piece of fashion advice, what would it be?
We don’t usually match our earrings to the necklace. To us the necklace is always the “driver” while earrings blend, and as any good passenger would, give good direction.

Step out in style this season – visit the store this weekend to shop Sylca Designs’ fabulous collection!

Summer Style Preview: Boho Chic

Enjoy this spring weather now! Here in North Carolina, it is generally short-lived. That being said, we have plenty of summery options to take you into the upcoming season. If you tend towards a boho chic style, we have beautiful pieces from great designers such as Johnny Was, Go Silk and Matthildur. We love the flow and the color of Johnny Was, the washable silk kimonos that look more like art pieces from Go Silk and the breathability of a pima cotton paint-splatter print dress from...

Dorothy & Sears

Dorothy and Sears tied the knot on November 7, 2015. These newlyweds said their 'I dos' in the Garden Terrace and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? Sears and I met a few days before Memorial Day 2014 - the Thursday night before the holiday weekend to be exact.
