Meet the Empresses

Real women of REALM share their stories.
Perhaps you have connected that REALM was inspired by my maiden name, King. Although it started there it has taken on a life of its own. It has become something that we as women—you and I—have created together. It encompasses jewelry and fashion, yes; as well as family and friends, challenges and triumphs. It is our kingdom.
I call you Empresses because I truly believe you are. You took on this title as a source of power and pride. You shared it with your friends, and they shared it with theirs. The passion, strength, kindness and beauty of this community continues to amaze me. Each of you rock your world in your own way, and you rock mine, too. Thank you.
To recognize and celebrate our bond, we’ve launched a new series: MEET THE EMPRESSES. In this series we’ll be highlighting the real women of REALM who, like us, strive to live their best lives and reign thoughtfully. We hope these stories will serve as a starting point for on-going conversations between us on this blog and social. Let’s use these platforms to support and celebrate each other. Share what you’re up to, comment, ask questions, tag us in your posts. We’d love to hear what’s happening in your REALM.
Be Your Own Empress & Continue to Reign Thoughtfully,

As I shared in my last post, we’re launching a new series, “Meet the Empresses,” celebrating the real women of REALM Fine + Fashion Jewelry. I’m pleased to begin that series with Alison Gary, creator of the website Wardrobe Oxygen – or “WO2,” to her loyal followers.
Offering “real-life style advice for grown-ass women,” Alison talks with refreshing honesty about age, weight, wardrobe and money. In her fearless social media posts she’s been known to shed her top to show the proper fit of a bra, wear outfits several times (oh my!) and appear in photos sans makeup, filters or Photoshop. It’s no wonder she has 17,500+ fans on Instagram. She certainly has all of us here at REALM in awe.
(Appear without makeup? In photos? Online? At the age of 44? That’s brave in our book!)
