Carola Bun

While searching for a great hosting outfit for Tara Lett to wear last week at the BMW Red Cross event we came across one of the best jewelry designers I have seen in a long time. Carola started making couture dresses and began adding beads to them. From there she developed this elegant and incredibly affordable collection pearl, Swarovski crystal and semi-precious stone accessories. This was pretty much all we needed for Tara since almost all of Bun's pieces are show stoppers.... paired with a LBD Tara looked fabulous!!
