Greased Lightning: The first necklace that clothing stylist Brooke Dulien designed, a silver lightning bolt inspired by one worn by a surfer in her native Newport Beach, became a signature piece for Sarah Jessica Parker’s character on Sex and the City in 2001. A Fred Segal order soon followed. Charmed Life: Dulien named her ’70s-influenced line White Trash Charms and opened a Los Feliz boutique with the same name in 2003, selling enamel necklaces depicting roller skates, headphones, peeled bananas. “My aesthetic? Music and fashion. I can trace everything back to staring at record covers for hours.” A New Shingle: This month the store changes its name to Gold School and incorporates a new partner company, Han Cholo jewelry. Cool Hunting: Companies as divergent as Playboy and Disney have hired Dulien to make over their icons in jewelry lines. Multitasker: “My ADD works for me.” Besides styling the Osbourne family, selling her jewelry to 250 stores, running the boutique, and designing, Dulien thinks up celebrity-scandal T-shirts that sell at Kitson, like the now-famous “Team Aniston” and “Team Jolie.” Now Showing At: Gold School, 1951 Hillhurst Ave., Los Feliz, 323-666-9585.
