‘Elegantly Bold,’ is how fine jewelry designer Marcia Budet likes to describe her creations and indeed, her signature aesthetic—that combines geometric configurations with bold colored stones—quickly catapulted this former Architect into the ranks of the jewelry world's elite. This month, we put the industrious designer, in our Well Heeled Hot Seat to talk style, fashion and those extra few inches. — MarciaBudet.com
Flats or five inches? Five inch heels!
Tiny tote or enormous bag? Even though I only make an effort to never leave home without lipstick, my cell phone and business cards—which can easily fit in a tiny tote—I have a bad reputation for always carrying super heavy, enormous (and gorgeous!) bags.
Satins or sequins? Satin look super chic during the day and can effortlessly crossover into night engagements, which is perfect for women like me, who are always on the go.
Overdressed or under-dressed? Overdressed over under-dressed all day everyday.
What’s your fashion mantra to the masses? My brand’s mission and mantra: I want to make women feel “Elegantly Bold.” I design conversation pieces for the not-so-shy, fashion forward woman that is on the hunt for statement-making pieces with a timeless feel. That said, I say, keep it sharp and tailored, then wear one unexpected piece that blows everyone away.
If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be? I would be a pair of Valentino Garavani black leather booties with fringe detail.
