SJP Voted in our $30 Pretty Connected Mask Chain!

The one where Sarah Jessica Parker is at dinner with Andy Cohen and Amy Sedaris talking about our Pretty Connected Mini Nikki mask chain ($30).

And then takes her son to vote for the first time and is wearing the same chain!

I’ve been completely stressed about this election and then to have DMs in my inbox saying SJP is wearing your chain to vote! I literally couldn’t be more proud, and honored. Especially since I spent the last week watching Hocus Pocus on repeat! I’ve also been fortunate enough to meet her a few times and she’s just simply the best! Funny enough, the last time we met was at her SJP x Sunglass Hut launch party, which she also wore to the polls. And they’re on sale!

What an incredible moment! Taking her son voting for the first time and our Pretty Connected mask chains got to be a part of it! Here’s hoping more of our youth and country did the same and voted!

Grab a drink, we’re in for a ride! Stay safe everyone!

11/4: UNFILTERED Experience | Catch us on the Influencer Panel + How to Grow Your Brand

It’s been a great week of panels for the annual UNFILTERED Experience show and on November 4th, I’ll be on two panels for their live sessions, Master Your Brand and Influencers and Unplugged: Creating Holistic Brand Relationships.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, – 10:00 am pst/1 pm est, MASTER YOUR OWN BRAND Panel

Let’s face it… at some point you’ve thought about how to evolve your content creator business to the next level. Maybe you’ve done successful campaigns with brand partners and it gave you a taste for what you can generate from your posts…or maybe you just want to develop an income stream stemming from products that reflect your own personality. How do you get started and fund your business? Do you merch under your own name or not? Hear first hand some of the key learnings from an influencer turned business founder. Q & A w/ leading influencers

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, – 11:00 am pst/2 pm est – INFLUENCERS UNPLUGGED: CREATING HOLISTIC BRAND RELATIONSHIPS Panel

While influencer marketing has catapulted many companies into financial darlings with private equity investors and to avid social media fandom, working with influencers is more of an art than science. Yes, data matters – audience fit, engagement, content fit are all very important metrics. But more so, the relationship that you develop with social media influencers who become your brand ambassadors and spokespeople matters even more. How do you cultivate long lasting relationships? Hear directly from influencers how they have nurtured relationships with favorite companies and what are the key tactics you can use to connect in a more holistic way with content creators. 

Educational registration is open now! All panels can be re-watched with ticket purchase. Check out the line up at https://www.unfilteredexperience.com/experience-online/education

The most anticipated show from Darren Star, Emily in Paris features our Pretty Connected straps on the show! As many of you know our signature multi-use strap which became popular during the pandemic as the original multi-use face mask chain has been in existence for years! And pre-Covid it was a popular as a bag strap and necklace. I made a custom chain for the show last year, when their costume designer, Patricia Field (who also carries the straps on patriciafield.com), was headed to Paris to film.

Almost a year later, the show is in the top 10 for Netflix! Catch The strap being worn by actress, Ashley Park, who plays Mindy Chen, Emily’s bestfriend. She’s rocking our Pretty Connected chain ($36) as a necklace in Episode 7, 5min in while at dinner with Emily and Camille.

Ralph Lauren Fragrances launches exclusive scent, ROMANCE Pink Pony Edition

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Pink Pony, Ralph Lauren Fragrances continues this important initiative and commitment to the fight against cancer, with an exclusive scent, ROMANCE Pink Pony Edition. Throughout the month of October, Ralph Lauren Fragrances will donate 100% of the profits to the Pink Pony Fund.

As part of the launch I got to attend an exclusive floral arrangement class with Lewis Miller, who is partnering with the brand for an upcoming Flower Flashes, which will be inspired by the fragrance and will pop up throughout NYC during October.

The first Pink Pony “Flower Flash” will pop-up on October 13 in front of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Ralph Lauren Center (RLC). Since its founding in 2003, RLC has cared for thousands of patients making it a beacon for accessible, compassionate cancer care for residents of Harlem and beyond.

Pretty Connected Mask Chains As Seen on Wendy Williams

Valerie Greenberg sharing her mask chain pick on The Wendy Williams Show

Our mask chain straps are on Wendy Williams! Lifestyle Expert, Valerie Greenberg shares Pretty Connected mask chains as part of the Stay Safe & Chic segment for the Wendy Williams Show!

During the segment Wendy commented, “Now here are the usual masks but these are more fabulous” followed by “these are really creative!” Mega sigh!

The masks shown on air are part of our Simple Satch x Pretty Connected collaboration ($45-$50 for the mask+chain set, $30 just the metal chain), and the BOY MEETS GIRL x Pretty Connected Dylan folding mask + plastic chain set ($32 for the mask and chain set, mask available in kids and adult sizes, $22 for just the plastic Dylan chain separate).

In response to Wendy’s unisex comment, she’s not wrong when it comes to the chains paired with our exceptional female-founded partners listed above. They do sku more feminine. However, our mask chains alone offer tons of more unisex options. Our new Ryan ($30) gunmetal chain launching on Friday, the Dylan plastic chain ($22) in light blue, royal blue and black, as well as the Charlie Chain ($24) in silver (black and gold coming soon!), have been huge sellers for the boys. Although we try not to gender stereotype over here since we’re working hard to have an option for everyone, no matter how you identify. We’re all about personal style!

Thank you Val and Wendy for an amazing show!

The unique partnership my signature two-toned makeup style complete with midnight blue liner and ombre lips, and a special edition photo frame highlighting Pretty Connected’s best-selling mask and multi-purpose chain strap accessories. The interactive try-ons allow fans to experience the trendsetting fall beauty style and chain-link photo frame with a tap of their smart device.

I’ve previously partnered with YouCam for my beauty non-profit, Share Your Beauty where for National Lipstick Day we partnered with editors/influnencers to do a drive where they could donate their unused lipsticks to a women’s shelter in the tri-state area.
