A Year in J. Luxe Videos

We've said it once or twice before but we'll say it again. Being friends with creative people has got to be one of life's greatest gifts.

Over the course of our year-and-a-half or so in business, our dear and talented friend, Mark Martinez has created some promotional videos of our store and merchandise. We've never asked him to do it, he's just asked and it has been the absolute greatest.

Here, a year in J. Luxe videos. Enjoy xx

Ear Piercings Revisited

Sometimes my mind goes off on these bizarre tangents. OK, but whose doesn't. I just start obsessing over something that's not really too new like Sia's "Breathe Me" or tattoos and ear piercings. What's so exciting about something people have been doing for ages?

One, I have this ongoing obsession with tattoo sleeves, especially on women. I think it's free and great and I especially love it when they're wearing pretty clothing. I like the idea of having a tattoo although I don't know if I'll ever get one. But I'll put that thought in my pocket for now.

Two, I'm revisiting earlobe piercings. Personally, I'm not too into flat or daith piercings, but if I was, I think my friend Molly got it right (pictured below). She recently visited TX from NYC and I was obsessed with her piercings AND earrings by J Colby Smith.
Molly's fancy.

I have a double piercing now and want to add a third. Here, my favorite results from Instagram-stalking J Colby Smith, NY Adorned and Molly.
