La Weez Jewelry
Why we ♥ Nicole’s Amazing Collection
I think I am La Weez Jewelry’s number one fan. Katie and I met Nichole at OC’s Fashion Week where Nichole was showing her new line- La Weez Jewelry. Right away we wanted to work with Nichole and her line. We asked her how many stores she was in and how many years had she been around, we where shocked by her answer, “I just started” said Nichole. We about died-her collection was amazing (not that of a typical new line). Nichole carves and casts most of her pieces which means that they are unique to her design and her line, which by the way is very rare these days and is typically not done due to cost and time. But that is the amazing thing about Nichole, she is all about design and style.
On a side note, when I say I’m a fan I’m not kidding. I have purchased about 10 pieces of Nichole’s jewelry not to mention the pieces she has gifted me. Make sure to follow La Weez Jewelry on Instagram & Facebook!

Where does the name La Weez come from?
Louise is my middle name. Growing up I HATED it and used to hide that fact that it was my middle name! When I got serious with my husband (then boyfriend) I finally revealed that was my middle name he said, “That’s cute, I’m going to call you Weezy – like George and Weezy from the TV show the Jeffersons.” I LOVED that show as a child so I loved my new nickname. I responded to his emails & texts spelling it phonetically – Weez, Weezy or La Weez. So when it came time to name my line – something so personal to me – I couldn’t think of a better name.
How would you describe your personal style?
Too cool for school 🙂 Ha! no. Honestly, my personal style is ever evolving. I’m so all over the place. One day it’s boho w/ a twist, the next it’s gaudy 70’s hostess, and the next it’s comfy sexy. A few common threads in my style are a.) I looovvve vintage b.) I love one-pieces & maxi dresses/skirts as much as I love vintage and c.) the older I get the more comfort plays a role in my wardrobe, but I rarely sacrifice style as a result. I find a way to work it out – comfy style 😉
