New York designer, Pretty Little Thing, isn't as harmless as her name suggests. Lirany Vasquez, the designer, makes jewelry with an attitude. With Spring pieces titled as the 'Weapon Charm Necklace' and the 'Sterling Silver Bullet Earring', you realize that, in addition to making coveted jewelry, the designer has enough wit to thrive in the industry. Vasquez studied English and started her career off as a fashion journalist before realizing "she no longer wanted to write about fashion but instead [wanted to] contribute something to it". In spite of this decision, Vasquez has been well received by the press over the few short years that her company has been in operation. Pretty Little Thing is sold in boutiques all over the world, including London, Los Angeles, New York, and just this year, Japan. That kind of distribution isn't anything to scoff at, especially coming from a girl who resides in the East Village, makin' jewelry.
