So a long time ago, I decided I was not a fan of "celebrity" brands.  It was pretty standard for celebrities to tell you how great their products were while wearing high end designer brands themselves (ie. Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci etc).  My thought was, why give them my money so they can go out and get themselves "Real" designer products.  I will save my money and buy myself a true designer piece that doesn't feel watered down by celebrity.  Well along came Nicole Ritchie with her  House of Harlow line and Gwen Stefani with L.A.M.B.  I must admit I did my best to resist, but I have since fallen in love with these brands.  I have a mad crush on HOH at the moment.  The above items are on my current wish list!  I truly believe what sets them apart from most "celebrity" driven brands is the fact that these ladies, wear their brands and wear them well, they have the ability to mix and match their own designs with other designers and keep it looking effortless.   In addition to wearing their products, the price points are definitely key to my arm being twisted into giving in.  Now HOH and L.A.M.B have been around for several years now, but November 2012 was my leap into this brand and I must admit I have not been disappointed by a single piece I've purchased thus far.  HOH products have a real designer feel.  So far, I own the sunburst earrings in black and sting ray embossed white, as well as the black Chelsea sunglasses that have really become a staple of the line.  I'm bummed that it took me this long to give in as I'd love to own the Sasha sunglasses, but these are impossible to find, maybe someday on Ebay ....sigh.....
