vendor tour: Puttin' on the Glitz

I first met Assiah last summer at Stefanie and Tom's wedding. Stefanie and her bridesmaids all wore Assiah's stunning jewels, each a beautiful combination of colors and sparkle. Assiah opened her darling Portsmouth shop three years ago seeing a need for women to have fun daily jewels with personality and pizazz not to be tucked away in a jewelry box. This upscale accessory store is a must-see on your wedding To Do list!

The tiny store, a jewel in itself, is located on State Street near Prescott Park.

The window display definitely caught my eye.

And inside, my mouth dropped. How small, yet how well stocked with stunning pieces.

The very glam, Assiah.

Assiah has such great taste and vision for her selections and display.

I met my mom June and stepfather Steve for a quick bite to eat, and to poke around the store.

Steve was trying very hard to get in the photos as mom tried on some necklaces. :)

We liked this one- casual and fun.

Looks nice, mom!

This cuff was a bit over the top (and weighed a ton!), but would be perfect for a formal night out!

I came home with something special to wear for my opening party. You'll just have to wait and see what it is!

Thank you, Assiah! We had such fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing you again in a few weeks!

    Thank you so much for coming to Puttin' on the Glitz for a vendor tour. It was a pleasure seeing you again, and meeting your family. I think the piece that you chose to wear to your opening is stunning and compliments your dress perfectly.
    I look forward to seeing you again.
