What: Vivian Wise and Heart of Fashion hosted "A Holiday Tea" for some of Houston's most social and sophisticated ladies.

Where: LifeHTX

The scoop: Guests stepped into a sparkling, opulent wonderland, and were treated to a private fashion show produced by Lenny Matuszewski and Tamara Klosz Bonar, which featured stunning designs from Valobra Master Jewelers. Guests enjoyed a range of guilty pleasures (both naughty and nice), including champagne, sweets, and treats — as well as a stunning visual presentation that highlighted Valobra’s one-of-a-kind jewelry designs.

Among the treasures modeled by lithe, ballerina-esque beauties were an art deco diamond bracelet, South Sea pearls, suites of ruby or sapphire with diamonds, and a show-stopping yellow diamond bracelet.

Style scoop: Style (and tech) savvy Houstonians should keep an eye out for Saint Viv, the retail fashion and bespoke shopping app created by Wise. The downloadable style tool is slated to be released soon.
