Basketball Wives season finale is quickly approaching. In season four, episodes span from New York to Miami to LA and beyond, but wherever these women go, there is never a dull moment in fashion. Now you can get the ‘basketball wives’ look with celebrity inspired jewelry from For Every Bella by New York native Laneese Santiago. For Every Bella is an online boutique with enough bling and CHIC things to satisfy your basketball wives fashion crave until the next season.
Mz Mahogany: Who is Laneese Santiago?
Laneese: I am mother of one with a passion for fashion and a drive to succeed.
Mz Mahogany: How did you choose the name ‘For Every Bella’?
Laneese: Well honestly, my first choice was Forever Bella but that name happened to be already taken. I kept playing around with that basic sentiment and ended up with For Every Bella. It turned out even better because it just says it all and I just love it!
Mz Mahogany: What was the most difficult aspect in launching your online boutique?
Laneese: The most difficult part was learning all the technical stuff that is behind a good looking website. I help design it and there is a lot more to that then I ever thought there was.
Mz Mahogany: Do you have any favorite pieces?
Laneese: I have many favorite pieces but if I had to choose one it would be the Spike Dome Ring in Multi. I think it’s a great ring for the summer. Very colorful so it would match lots of outfits and the spikes add a little edge for a fun look.
Mz Mahogany: What advice would you give a fashion student looking to open an online jewelry boutique?
Laneese: The best advice I would give anyone trying to open any kind of business is be good to your customers, and always strive to be the best. It is not easy running your own business and it takes a lot of perseverance and desire to make it work. Just stay positive and work harder than you ever have and it will work out. Don’t let anyone discourage you and stop you from following your dream.
