Our recipe for the perfect fashion dream team is as follows: half stylist-cum-designer, half fine-jeweler extraordinaire, and a sprinkling of all-around chicness. In other words, we crave a Rachel Zoe and Jennifer Meyer union. And, with the launch of The Zoe Report's exclusive capsule collection of Jennifer Meyer charms — inspired by Rachel's first-ever Meyer pieces — that's what we're getting. Intrigued? Check out this limited-edition line here, and click through to shop our favorite pieces (in the "Shop The Article" section). And, ahead, learn more from the stylish pair, including the shoes they deem the most comfy (yes, they're both heels), their can't-live-without under-$13 beauty goods, and more. You're going to D.I.E. for all of it.
