The fact that Spanish label Loewe is now being sold at cult-favorite and kooky-collaboration mecca Opening Ceremony says a lot. The lush leather brand has come a long way in the last few years.

I love rare gemstones as much as the next Snob, but even rarer than Alexandrite or Paraiba tourmaline are the pieces that hold sentimental significance to my life and the people in it. That’s why I just had a Chinchar/Maloney necklace made with my birthstone, as well those of the boy and my hubby.

If there is one topic that fascinates me more than bags and fashion, it's cosmology.
