Finger Bracelets: Put a Ring on It

There’s something about spring that brings out the boho in everyone. It’s a fresh new start, the sun is shining, and you just feel free. Now is the best time of year to try out a new style, and the one I’m eyeing is the finger bracelet. It seems like they’re everywhere and mostly at […]

Vannesa Tosoni Pearl Necklaces: Revenge is Best Served in Pearls

Revenge is my favorite show on TV right now, and Victoria Grayson is without a doubt the best love to hate villain. She’s the ultimate Snob  so of course I was thrilled to see her wear my dear friend Vannesa Tosoni’s pearl necklaces on the January 6th episode. Since the first lady of Grayson manor […]

Branch Jewelry: At One with Nature

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for fashion. The more sophisticated a woman’s taste in jewels, the more she brings it back to the basics and tones it down. Even when a tree’s branches are bare of leaves, their form and twisted shape fascinate us. So I’ve selected the best branch jewels, but […]

Monique Péan: Organically Graphic

A CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award winner in 2009, Monique Péan was a finance exec who was once obviously out of her element. Her talents clearly lie in jewelry design, and she excels in her industry by creating organic designs using only eco-sustaining materials, such as mammoth bones and the like. Sound contradictory? Here’s how she […]

Chanel Spring 2013 Collection: Large Baubles Ahead

In Karl’s world, there is no fashion without frivolity (which is the way it should be pretty much all the time, if you ask me) and there is no business like fashion-show business. This season, he went full force at Chanel, applying elements of exaggeration any and everywhere he could. Hula-hoop bags (yes, as in […]

Top 5 Pristine Pendants: A Penchant for Pendants

Sometimes one good thing is all you need. A statement pendant gets you noticed fast, without the obviousness of a chunky, clunky necklace. There’s a certain je nais se quoi about wearing something so striking yet so simple. From emerging butterflies to shooting stars, here are a few of my favorite pendants: 1. Marni Pendant […]
