We are back and showcasing a few more brands we are absolutely loving this month. One of the greatest compliments as a brand is getting a shoutout or being highlighted and that is what we are here to do! We are giving these brands their flowers and hoping you stumble upon some new brands to love as well.
So without further ado, here are the brands we are loving this month!
Being raised in a household where her grandmother had 7 girls, was a seamstress who could make anything without a pattern and also a grandfather who never saw a mirror he didn’t like and always with a comb in hand, it is not a surprise that she became infatuated with everything related to beauty.
Netty’s mother was also heavily involved in the beauty industry as a professional hair stylist, who was always on top of the latest trend. She encouraged her individuality and self-expression from an early age.
Whether it was a hairbrush, makeup brush, a yard of fabric, a spatula, or even a camera to capture it all, Netty surrounded herself with opportunities to pave the way for her dreams to come true. With hard work and perseverance, Shrine of 22’s was born.
Netty was raised in a household where paying it forward was instilled in her from a very young age. It is her hope that Shrine of 22s, straight from Netty’s kitchen to your home, will add to the legacy of her late, dear grandmother Fresa Hernandez. Fresa was a key factor in her upbringing and gave her, her work ethic and values.
Born on 2/22/22 in the Dominican Republic, Fresa was no stranger to hard times and those experiences are what led to her instilling in her granddaughter the importance of charity and philanthropy. Shrine of 22’s and Fresa’s Hair Care will be an homage to her greatness with the extension of The Manuel Collection being one for her dear late grandfather, Manuel Hernandez.
SO Home Collective is a black-owned brand that showcases modern drinkware and dinner party goods, a first in this industry. The tall champagne stems are a detail that guests love regardless of the occasion. The elongated collection is hand blown and lead free crystal with a sleek design that doubles as décor. The champagne glass will be featured in colored glass as a nod to vintage inspired glassware and a gift that compliments any table.
SO Home Collective is inspired by years of curating intimate gatherings at home and in founder Lillian H. Alexander’s backyard, including her 200-person black tie garden wedding where they served their guests dinner under a beautiful tent. Her introduction to home hosting came 12 years earlier. She served as waitstaff for a catering company to save money for law school. She would arrange glassware, table spaces, and entertainment goods in the homes of wealthy clients. She did not want to sacrifice the luxury or organized level of service that is associated with a venue; therefore, she used her styling process as an opportunity to be creative.
Lillian later became an attorney and established the lifestyle brand “She So Overdressed” both of which allowed her to foster relationships and genuine opportunities to avail her home to host guests . As she reflects on her happiest moments, they are when her guests can unwind and enjoy conversation in comfortable spaces she provides.
Her mission for SO Home Collective is to share her love of luxurious details that add utility and value to home gatherings filled with heartfelt memories.
