Jaime Primak Sullivan wears a lot of hats. She's a mother, wife, businesswoman and devoted friend. Her recent fame stemming from the success of hit reality TV show Jersey Belle on Bravo, has birthed several opportunities for Sullivan to share her unique perspectives on life and friendship. As creator and host of Cawfeetawk, a digital series found on YouTube and Facebook, Sullivan addresses her audience with frequent chats about some of the more challenging experiences life has to offer, as well as holding true to who we are at our core. So, who is Jaime Primak Sullivan? She is a die-hard, no-nonsense and unapologetic Jersey Girl.
For fans of the Jersey Belle series, Sullivan's love for her home state of New Jersey is quite clear. Raising her family in Alabama seems like a different world from childhood memories of her hometown, but she embraces both cultures beautifully. Enter State of Style Jewelry, her initial foray into the fashion world with jewelry brand partner Chelsea Taylor, known for their sterling silver jewelry set with CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski™ Elements.
So, why fashion?
Jaime isn’t a person who changes her jewelry or accessorizes very often. Between her busy life as a mother and public relations professional, you can imagine how her time is limited when it comes to completing her look before bolting out the door with the kids or making it to the office in time for a conference call. Somehow, she’s always managed to remember to wear her New Jersey pendant - it’s her connection to her home. Jaime’s experience is relating to loving New Jersey and then leaving at 23, and at 38 she vows to never forget where she came from.
Still a Jersey Girl at heart, Sullivan is outspoken, real and bold, but well aware of the characteristics of her belle best friends, as they are more likely to stop and smell the roses, savor life experiences, and they most definitely don’t feel compelled to say the first thing that comes to their mind. It’s the combination of the two that made the Jersey Belle show such a huge success. The ride or die Jersey girl matched with the authenticity of friendship was what women craved and they got it every episode.
If ever a role in the fashion world existed for Jaime, this would be it. Known for her “Edgy” style, she wanted to make sure the one pendant she wanted wear every day existed. So, she reached out to her favorite designer Drew Shapiro at Chelsea Taylor and told him about her idea for a jersey pendent with black crystals with an oxidized chain. He offered her a whole lot more than her own custom piece, the brand offered her the entire state pendant line and State of Style Jewelry was born.
“In the reality world, you get bombarded with product endorsements that are completely unrelated to your life and personality,” says Jaime, so you can see how this collaboration is a no-brainer.
From Alabama to Wyoming, State of Style Jewelry offers a range of products connecting you to the state or states of your choice. The pieces are made in Rhodium over Brass with Preciosa™ crystals making them fancy enough to feel sophisticated, but not so fancy that you can’t wear it with jeans and a tee. Pick your staple piece or layer it with multi-state pride! Pricing starts at $34.99 and can be purchased online at www.StateofStyleJewelry.com.
