As a blogger I always strive to work with brands that not only I’ve used and worn over the years, but respect as well. Gorjana is one such brand for me. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the jewelry and so when I had the opportunity to host not one, but two sip and shops I almost died.
First off, how do you pronounce Gorjana? Think of the word Gory and the name Ana and put them together. What started out as a husband and wife making the jewelry out of their apartment and driving place to place to sell samples, has expanded to 13 stores across the United States and selling various pieces on Nordstrom, Revolve and Shopbop. If you’re not familiar with their jewelry you can click here, but I describe it as classic styles combined with beachy sophistication. Some pieces are timeless that you can wear day after day, year after year, while others are a bit trendier, but not so much that you wear them once and then chuck. Whatever item, they’re all beautiful and a must for any accessory drawer.
Because I live in Orange County, but was also going to fashion week in New York, we decided to have one in Irvine and one at their NY West Village location during NYFW, which I can now die because I hosted a NYFW event with one of my favorite brands.
Because the events were so different, I opted for completely different looks and completely different jewelry to style my looks.
Irvine Spectrum Sip & Shop
Because we’re near the beach and because I had to be a little extra, I had two outfits for my Irvine event. The first one was a snakeskin bodycon dress and the second a pretty blue tie dye dress. Both looked great with my Gorjana pieces!

West Village NY Sip & Shop
Since it was NYFW I went a little more glam and sparkly! My gold ruffled dress was gorgeous and almost princess like so adding some sparkle to it was necessary and easy with the pieces below!

Both events were fabulous and what I noticed that people stayed and shopped! Not that I would ever want people to feel obligated to buy anything at my sip & shop’s, but because it was Gorjana and everyone loves their jewelry already, people were excited to see the new fall pieces and shop for themselves or for gifts!
Thank you to all my followers, friends and fellow bloggers who attended and thank you to Essntls Lab for donating the awesome product and of course everyone from both Gorjana locations who helped. It was truly an amazing experience to partner and I can’t wait to do it again!
