You ask, we deliver: By request, on the latest ep of A Few Things with Claire and Erica, we’re answering your burning questions about...HOSIERY! It’s a terrible word, but we swear this is important stuff—because what could be worse than a blustery winter and piles of terrible tights full of runs? Then we’re catching up with two of our favorite gal pals, twin sisters Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato—aka the creative geniuses behind the rockin’ accessories line Lizzie Fortunato Jewels (and all-star Of a Kind collaborators). Hear all about taking their biz from a dorm room to the big time—and feel free to coopt the hashtag #PRatthebar.
Episode 30: That’s Tight: How to Keep Your Legs Warm This Winter—and What it Really Takes to Build a Successful Jewelry Business // LISTEN
Special and amazing guests: Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato, creators of Lizzie Fortunato Jewels!
Let’s talk about: Warming up your stems...and building a business with legs.
The post-listen link-dumpage:
On winter-ready tights and socks...
- Erica’s obsession: Wolford’s Velvet De Luxe 66 and Mat Opaque 80 for buttery, super-thick, no-tear tights that are very much worth the investment.
- Easy-to-find go-tos: HUE and DKNY.
- Spanx Reversible Tights: For a thick, yet opaque look, plus control top support.
- The Wolford of Claire’s sock drawer: Falke.
- Speaking of socks, we also love: Richer, Poorer, Feetures for running, Smartwool (all about the Hide and Seek)—and word on the street is Sperry has good ones, too.
- For those looking for a sockless run, lace up Nike FlyKnits. (And maybe invest in this also.)
On business and sisterhood—with Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato!
- Continuing that sock talk, Lizzie and Kathryn are all about Tabio in Paris for sparkly ones and COS for the rest.
- Ornamentea, the bead store in Raleigh, North Carolina, where Lizzie originally sourced her jewelry supplies.
- Albertine, the first store to sell Lizzie Fortunato.
- The CFDA has a database of NYC-based production vendors.
- Speaking of New York, if you’re here, hit the Lizzie Fortunato pop-up shop at 7 E. 34th Street through January 24th!
