My305Style: Tara Sokolow-Benmeleh

It was during her honeymoon trip to Machu Piccu that she discovered pieces of inspiration that would turn her into a business owner. “I found these beautiful bracelets with indigenous fabric beads, and I took them home and I redid them,” she said, mixing in onyx stones for protection, and gave them out as gifts. The demand grew and she launched Espiritutara in 2011. Now with her little one, Max Aero, in tow, she’s a working mom who knows how to balance both a good look and a hectic life.
