|Tinsley Mortimer and her boyfriend Brian Mazza|
Socialite turned businesswoman Tinsley Mortimer made an appearance at the Dannijo Fall 2011 jewelry presentation on Tuesday evening at the GEM Hotel. Wearing a floral Jill Stuart frock from the designer's Spring 2011 collection and and military green below-the-calf boots,Tinsley looked ready for warmer weather, one completely different from the frigid temperature outside that evening. "I figured I had to wear floral since Spring is right around the corner," she quipped. The handbag designer viewed the presentation and posed for the cameras present at the presentation wearing a gorgeous turquoise and gold bib necklace from the Dannijo collection.
The native Virginian turned New York socialite chatted briefly with me about her Valentine's Day plans with her beau, Paige Management Group VP Brian Mazza, who stood behind the scenes and far away from the flashing bulbs. Tinsley said she's "going to celebrate Valentine's Day a day early, on the 13th, by going to see Swan Lake. My boyfriend thought it would be nice to surprised me with tickets." She told me Brian had never been to the ballet but loved the move Black Swan, staring Natalie Portman, so much that he thought it would great to enjoy a night at the ballet together.
