Welcome back! Today I'm particularly excited to catch up, because I'll get to see some of your faces at tonight's event!!

I have to warn you, this post is full of detail, but I promise every last bit will be worth the read...

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Annie Hurlbut, co-founder of Peruvian Connection, and her story is the perfect combination of awe and inspiration.

Peruvian Connection's history begins when Annie was only 19, doing anthropological research in the Andes of Peru.

Fascinated by the textiles she saw and the women who wove them into intricate mantas & ponchos, Annie began learning everything she could about the alpaca fibers used in these pieces. Annie studied everything from the spinning and dyeing, the warp-faced weaving techniques, and the ancient tradition of which these fibers were a part.

Not long after, Peruvian Connection was born. Nothing big, just a small collection of sweaters designed by Annie and sold out of her mother's home in Kansas. The goal was simple: offer artisan made, original designs in native Andean luxury fibers.

Though displayed at a much larger scale today, this concept remains the core of Peruvian Connections's values, and while there are now design teams in place the pieces continue to be made by the skilled Andean artisans whose time-honored textile tradition remains an art form.

Thanks to Peruvian Connection's extreme generosity my favorite pieces from this season's collection will be available tonight at 20% off!

In addition, Annie is giving one lucky Glitterary reader a $50 gift card! This email was just received, so the giveaway will be live through Monday, 3/31. All you need to do to enter is head to Peruvian Connection & comment below with your favorite selection. 

So, what are you waiting for? If you haven't sent in your RSVP, it's not too late, just email the address in the invite, and join me as we style and shop these incredible pieces!

See you soon! :)

Peru-se, Sip, & Style

Can we talk about this brand's tag line: "Artisan Apparel for Nomads & Romantics"... Something about those words brings out the wonderlust spirit in me & immediately I'm craving summer.

I don't know about you, but when I think summer, I think festivals, and when I think festivals, I think easy summer living.

If you're not familiar with Peruvian Connection, I'd liken it to a combination of Free People & Anthropologie. Peruvian Connection is a luxury brand catering to women's creativity and individualty. The Peruvian Connection gal is smart, confident, and creative. Her style is both feminine & rustic, romantic & adventurous. Above all she is unique & confident- critical components to her individual style.

Today, I'm excited to invite you to a fun evening of sips and styling at Peruvian Connection's Chicago boutique. This event will take place one week from tomorrow, on March 25th from 6-8 pm at 925 W. Armitage Avenue.

Here you will find my favorite pieces from Peruvian Connection's new spring collection that will seemlessly transition you into sunnier days.

Also hosting this event are two of my favorite gals, Christine of View from 5ft 2, & Cait of Pretty & Fun! Let me just say, between the three of us, and Femme du Coupe's mixology expertise, my hopes are set high for this little soiree ;)

Did I mention you'll get 20% off our spring picks? Just one more reason to join... Hope to see you there!!!
