Save the Date: Lizzie Fortunato Trunk Show

If you are an Instagram person, like I am, you need to follow Lizzie Fortunato (@lfjewels). Of course it showcases their beautiful jewelry pieces, but it is much more than that, just like the line itself. Even though they are known for their handcrafted jewelry, the line goes beyond earrings and necklaces.

First of all, the way these ladies accessorize is masterful. Of course they can throw on three necklaces and a pair of earrings and somehow it doesn’t translate as “too much.” But then they throw on a scarf, bag, and belt from their collection and it still looks effortless. There is an art to layering.

Did I mention they also started doing this year’s biggest trend? Hair accessories. Get ready for the cutest bows and headbands you have ever seen. Their website also has an amazing section called Fortunato Finds that has pieces carefully curated from their travels. You will find table-top pieces, kitchen wares, home accessories, textiles, and so many other things.

So how do you see and touch all the great pieces from their spring collection? You stop by The Hive for our trunk show starting Thursday, May 9 through Sunday May 12. For four days only they are shipping us tons of extra pieces from the Spring 2019 collection and it will all be priced at 20 percent off.

Just so you know a little bit about their spring collection, it was inspired by what drives most of their lines — their travels around the world. This past year they spent time in the Corsica sun. This collection is where the island’s rugged but beautiful beaches meet traditional French references. Think Brigitte Bardot in a Breton shirt and a fisherman’s netting bag. You’ll love it.


  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
