Time for a c+i Trend Report. Today’s topic? Eclectic, always-chic Bohemia! When it comes to this haute Fall trend, are you a Chloe or an Isabel? For the fearless fashionistas (in our circles, a ‘Chloe’): be bold in an of-the-moment fringed kimono layered with our Trésors Chain + Pavé Necklace Set + Bouquet Rouge Long Pendant Necklace. For a more polished look (say, for a classic ‘Isabel’), add a touch of whimsy to this season’s basic boho tee with our Bouquet Rouge Statement Earrings.

Fall has officially arrived here at The Nest, and to celebrate, we invited Summer’s top two Merchies to c+i HQ for a little taste of autumn in the Big Apple! 
Merchandiser Ericka Hostler + Merchandise Manager Gina Lukas of #TeamNorthwest enjoyed an all-expenses-paid visit to NYC, including dinner on the town with Founder + CEO Chantel Waterbury, a custom blow-out at Drybar, and an in-house photoshoot! We caught up with the dynamic duo about their NYC adventure, c+i Fall faves, and what inspires them most:
c+i: How’d you feel when you heard that your performance had earned you a trip to c+i headquarters?Gina: Overwhelmed with emotion. You work so hard towards a goal + when you achieve it, you are just blown away!Ericka: I was hired by c+i the month before the incentive started, so I felt very accomplished that I had already reached such a level of success with the company.
c+i: What was the highlight of your NYC trip? Gina: Dinner with founder + CEO Chantel, Ericka, + baby Coco! I love that I was part of a successful entrepreneur trio…that shut a down a restaurant engrossed in conversation about female empowerment, the future of c+i, inspiration, goals, baby names…+ so much more.Ericka: Getting to meet my Merchandise Manager Gina Lukas…Also, meeting all the lovely people at the corporate office helped me realize that I am a part of something bigger – this is an amazing company!
c+i: What’s your favorite part about being a c+i Merchandiser? Gina: The Merchandiser community! The beautiful jewelry is just a bonus. The friendships + inspirational stories that happen through the Merchandiser experience are life-changing. Ericka: Getting to be social + building genuine relationships with people, while looking fabulous!
c+i: What inspires you?Gina: I do all that I do for my family – giving my boys the best family life is what drives me. I want to be a part of their everyday + c+i affords me that. Plus, I truly love the entrepreneurial spirit + am blessed that I can nurture that part of myself with my sisters from c+i.Ericka: My daughter Coco inspires me! In her 11 months of life, she has touched more lives + conquered more things that I thought possible. She inspires me not to limit myself! 
c+i: What advice do you have for entrepreneurial women thinking about launching their own businesses?Gina: Don’t overthink it! Keep it simple. Be positive! Think + surround yourself ONLY with positivity – it’s the secret sauce.Ericka: This is your business + you are the only one in control. Work hard + you will see the reward.
c+i: What’s your favorite piece from our Fall 2014 collection, Botanica? Gina: I’m usually drawn to ring stacks, but this time my favorite piece is the Beau Monde Long Pendant Necklace.Ericka: The Bouquet Rouge Stackable Rings! They are simple, gorgeous, + a great price!
