The Cat’s Meow

Animal print! This timeless pattern has been represented and styled in hundreds of different ways throughout the decades. And here at Minx? We love it! We love it as a subtle pop of edge or as the main event of an outfit. It’s the magical pattern that, while it is very eye-catching, it can also read as a neutral. This means that although animal print is a wild pattern – you can still effortlessly add a pop of color, a red lip, or layers of accessories. Don’t let it scare you away, embrace the sass as the boss lady or rebel girl that you ARE!

I Dare You to Stop Staring

With the holidays around the corner, consider this an open invitation to rock that show -stopper dress you’ve been holding out for. It may be sparkly, it may be bodycon, it may be crushed velvet, it may even have rhinestones top to bottom- but either way, NOW is the time! At Minx, we literally cannot stop staring at this Stop Staring Dress with beautiful ruffle and bow detail. Although the dress is clearly the main event, don’t feel like you should hold back on accessories. Our David Aubrey necklace and Extasia cameo earrings are bold and perfectly compliment the monochromatic tones of the dress and shoes. Wearing this dress, we actually dare you to try to stop staring!

Untitled design (21)

The story of David Aubrey began where many do, with a intrinsic interest in the art of design. From a young age, Jennifer Arago, was always enchanted with creating- taking simple objects and pairing them together to create something totally new. With age, this fascination never wavered, but was pushed aside in order to pursue a more traditional career path. While in nursing school, Jennifer apprenticed with a jewelry designer- where she quickly realized old hobbies die hard.

While still in school, Jennifer went on to create and market her first collection. Her talent caught the eye of agents in Atlanta and New York, and in 1996 David Aubrey was born- and it was an instant hit! After generating several million dollars in the first few years, Jennifer left the world of orthopedics to become to chief designer of David Aubrey. Now based out of Jersey City, David Aubrey jewelry continues to be recognized for it’s bold, colorful, and meticulous designs.

David Aubrey Necklace

Over the years, we’ve seen our fair share of David Aubrey. While the collections vary from season to season and themes come and go, the craftsmanship never waivers. Each piece is a carefully designed and “painstakingly crafted with an array of raw materials, including plated and oxidized brass and white metal, semiprecious stones and vintage glass, acrylic and resin beads, painted wood, and carved bone.” Whether it’s the delicate and romantic styles, or the bold plastic baubles, David Aubrey jewelry is a statement everyone can enjoy.
