talking shop: vanessa lee of lionette by noa sade…

…we are so excited to bring back one of our favorite features – Talking Shop! With our obsession for accessories and love of finding new designers to covet, it was obvious we needed to relaunch with Vanessa Lee, Co-Founder of Lionette by Noa Sade!




Founded in 2009, the collection was born when Noa Sade and Vanessa Lee came together as best friends and business partners to curate an accessory line fit for an empress.  With the name Lionette, inspiration came from the fierceness of the lioness to create a jewelry collection designed for a woman who is empowered and unafraid to stand out in the urban jungle. Born and raised in NYC, Vanessa knows that jungle all too well and she gives us the inside scoop on where she is shopping…






Tell us your favorite boutique in New York City…

Otte (NYC), packed with great lines such as Kenzo, 3:1 Phillip Lim, Isabel Marant, Sjobeck.  The assortment pushes the envelope mixing funky printed pants, luxurious knits, studded leather jackets and to die for accessories! The stores are impressively merchandised.




Outside of New York, what is your favorite city to shop and your go to boutique…

Outside of NYC, my favorite city to shop is London- Liberty. It is a palace full of pretty things & cool collections, from tea cups, soaps, home furnishings, designer apparel and accessories. You can have delicious scones too, can’t beat that.




What is your shopping weakness? Bags? Shoes?

Shoes. Some to wear, some just to admire.




Out of all the gorgeous pieces in the Lionette collection, tell us your favorite…

This is the hardest question because there are so many. Gizele, Sinead, Byron Bay – I narrowed it down to three.
