Over the moon for coils.

This style earring has been out for years. However, I am just coming around to it. As predicted, minimal floats my boat.

Thanks to Maria Black, there are so many beautiful choices, in a variety of finishes. This Danish-Irish designer launched her first collection “MBJ” in 2010 built on ambition and passion for precious metals and a fashion-forward approach to conceptual jewelry design. Maria continuously innovates the perception of body adornment in a contemporary prêt-a-porter approach.

I am loving these delicate and effortlessly cool 18-karat gold Lila Twirl earrings. They are handcrafted to curve around the lobe. And the 0.056-carats of diamonds sparkle in the light beautifully!

I love soft, airy fabrics. I love clothing that inspires femininity, and at the same time, freedom. I love Loup Charmant for creating a line steeped in ocean life.

Growing up spending her summers on a small island off the coast of the Carolinas, Founder Kee Edwards has always savored the easy lifestyle of sun-soaked days on the beach. Loup Charmant, meaning charming wolf, is a reference to Kee’s own coming-of-age, evoking the sensuality and subtle flirtatiousness that is inherent to her brand.

The Loup Charmant story began in 2006 when Kee discovered the heirloom quality fabric that allowed her to bring her vision to life. Timeless. Versatile. Fuss-free. 

One stroll around the house in bloomers and I was hooked. Not only did I buy more bloomers (silk, too), I bought a beautiful, easy breezy nightgown. 100% organic cotton, and sewn in New York City. Obsessed.

And to think, it all started with a pair of bloomers.

Loving everything blush. Still.

Even though this color does me no favors, I dig it. Soft, beautiful, feminine.

This transitional time of year calls for an easy pullover for chic layering. How about this cap sleeve sweater? Ulla Johnson's handloom chunky organic cotton sweater, naturally dyed light pink, has awesome fringe detail with a lace up V-neckline with cotton ties. So fun!

SS17Alaia

It's January and 70 degrees outside. What a tease.

Though I love winter (yes I do) the break has been nice. This month every year my focus shifts to spring pre-orders for clients. And guess who made my list?

Azzedine Alaia is one of the world's most respected fashion designers. Honest. Shy. Yet doesn't bow to the pressures or demanding timetables of the fashion industry.

The spring collection is full of sculptural silhouettes and meticulous craftmanship. And, oh the shoes!

If you didn't notice, the bomber made a big comeback this fall. And into spring it goes

While there are many to choose from, I am most excited about these. Valentino, Saint Laurent and Kenzo bring on the style personality with bright, cheery colors and prints, just in time for spring. These lightweight jackets amp up any outfit, from jeans to flirty skirts. And if you happen to prefer dark solids, they have those, too.
