Vanessa: I always loved jewelry, always been a bling junkie collecting hoop earrings, big bangles, chains, etc.. I used to always buy a pair of earrings and make it into my own I would tear it apart and just change up the whole thing. So one day I said why not make it my business if I love it? So I did it. I always wanted to have a store and always loved fashion.
Maytee: Tell us a little about your line 'Rich Girlz' and the concept?
Vanessa: RichGirlz is all about adding that swag to your outfit! You can be rocking jeans and a tee and when you add the big hoops your whole outfit turns into something else. Its all about making a statement and feeling rich inside and out. The commercial was one of my ideas it’s about a High-school girl dreaming about being rich and having the fine things we all love. It’s always good to dream BIG because if you go hard for what you love you can make it happen.

Maytee: Name some of your favorite pieces you’ve created?
Vanessa: One of my favorite are the RichSquarez hoop earrings from my signature collection; they are super light and sparkly like we love em' they come in silver, gold, blkngold, and I just added the pink ones (to die for).
Also the RichSquarez bangles which are from my signature collection, I made them to match the RichSquarez hoops! Just fab!
