If it’s really Tuesday, but it feels like Monday, what do you do? We say go with it and get psyched for the rest of the week, and we don’t know a better way to do that than by sharing our amazing Monday Motivators with you.
They say you’re never fully dressed without a smile. Me, I’m never fully dressed without an amazing necklace, so I am always on the hunt for those really different, pretty, eye catching pieces. I was so excited when I found Rope.you.in on Instagram (@Ropeyouin), and I’m thrilled to introduce you to its founders, Jackie Himelfarb and Sami Tenenbaum.
1. Where do you go to school?
Binghamton University, State University of New York.
2. How did you get the idea for Rope.you.in?
Sami went to a jewelry store and saw a similar necklace that cost over $120. She made an even better necklace by herself to save money and showed it to me. I was obsessed with it and said let’s start a business!
3. What makes your necklaces stand out from other brands?
Our necklaces stand out because they’re beautiful and affordable. We market towards a college audience and they can be worn with any outfit, whether you’re going to class in sweats and a tank or going out to a frat party.
4. Who is your biggest fashion inspiration?
Jackie: My biggest fashion inspiration is Monica Rose, the stylist of the Hadids, Jenners, Kardashians, and many other models. Whether it’s street style or for the red carpet, everything she puts together is fashion forward.
Sami: My biggest fashion inspiration is Rihanna. She can go from wearing something extremely girly to edgy, and can find the perfect balance between them.
5. If you could have one celebrity’s closet, who would it be?
Jackie: Olivia Palermo. She has an incredible eye for mixing and matching patterns and always looks so chic and well put together.
Sami: Blake Lively. She has amazing style and looks regal on every red carpet.
6. What is your favorite summer weekend and beach look featuring Rope.you.in?
Jackie: For a night out in the city, a long Rope•you•in necklace with a sleeveless black jumpsuit. If you’re going to the beach, a Rope•you•in choker with a bikini.
Sami: My go-to outfit is more on the casual side. Any Rope•you•in necklace with a halter-top and Brandy Melville shorts.
7. What’s your biggest/best binge watch?
Jackie: I watched Entourage in 3 weeks. My current binge watch on Netflix is How I Met Your Mother.
Sami: Grey’s Anatomy or Criminal Minds
8. What was your big business breakthrough moment? When did you know this was real? When we started selling wholesale!
9. What’s your favorite summer snack?
Jackie: my favorite thing to eat in the summer is fresh fruit.
Sami: Ice cream.
10. What are you most excited for this summer?
