Live from Las Vegas our bestie Nolan Meader who is sooo busy these days, penciled us in this week to catch us up on his fab new career and give us some tips on wearing fine jewelry.
Nolan has been a very busy MAN ABOUT TOWN, but he stops in for a hot minute to update us on his recent influencer events in the Hamptons – and then his very important trip to VEGAS, BABY! for the national Jewelry Shows.
But first, we discuss his favorite store – AGAIN – which is Frame, who just happens to have released a line for the NY Carlyle Hotel, also his favorite. How much can you spend on a sweatshirt? – I mean, apparently a lot. But Carlyle Hotel merch is 5-star hotel merch. Not your average douche-y beach resort swag – and believe him, there is a difference!
As he is always on the hunt for FABULOUS items for Holly, he found a hot pink Valentino dress one day while shopping with Schmutz (our Doodle Mascot) who proceeds to dump our hosts for the table next to them….obvi they had better petting skills. #rude. Be sure to check our social posts for photos!
Next is the Hamptons fashion PR party report– with a ridiculous pre-party sidebar where Nolan got his party outfit swamped at the beach PRIOR to party time while shooting IG content, and possibly after some adult drinks. The next weekend he was back to attend a party for Betsey Johnson Jewelry – where he had the BEST.DAY.EVER.DOT.COM – and then Julia Hart from “My Unorthodox Life” showed up. So chic!!! Holly was 80% happy for him.
And FINALLY – we get the skinny on the Las Vegas Couture and Antique Jewelry Show. From jewelry that will be sold to Nordstrom to the most classic, vintage Henry Winston jewels-it. was. next. level.
He reports the hottest trends are in jewelry right now, and that expensive fine jewelry is outrageously popular right now. What should you buy if you are looking for some nice jewelry? He has a very specific point of view on this: what to buy, how to buy.
We were up for some much needed joy this week, as well as some jewelry tips – and we loved hearing him spill the tea from the jewelry shows! We are so lucky to be able to get some hot tips:
Do your research and invest in pieces that will make you happy!
What are the latest trends in jewelry?
Which watches are people wearing these days?
Can you mix costume jewelry with real jewels? Can you mix metals?
Don’t shun vintage and secondhand jewelry stores, especially if you want to spend a lot of money on something. Look there first before you go to a chain.

“I think that was the best party that I didn’t go to.” – Holly Katz, with eyeroll.
“I’m really into jewelry right now. Clothing is an investment in your own happiness, your confidence and it’s worth every penny. But jewelry does hold value of some kind because you are putting money into a precious metal or precious stone.” – Nolan Meader
