Rock On

I love organic jewels. The beauty is in the imperfection and rawness. Rough cut diamonds. Geodes. Hammered gold and silver. I have a feeling Melissa Joy Manning and I have this in common. Her jewelry looks like it's been unearthed from millions of years of soft baked clay with grandma's fine sterling spoons. A chunk of stone + a splash of metal = an exquisite ring or pendant sparkling to drool over. OK, I'll take it!

Wear Today

It's a beautiful day in Southern California. What I would wear, if I could wear. Sleeveless Vanessa Bruno-yes. Boots-(if they are by Margiela), YES! Current Elliot skinny jeans-check. Bling from CC Skye and Janis- you know it. Slouchy hunter green bag from Le Sport Sak- why not?!

Feeling Felt

I was recently introduced to the art of felting. Not only is it super fun, it's very cathartic, stabbing your raw hunk of wool repeatedly with a sharp needle. In my research of this craft I came across Stephanie Metz. She makes amazing creations that are beautiful as well as creepy. Enjoy

Stuff That Does Other Stuff

I love items that can multi task. Take Complexgeometries for example, their garments can be worn in multiple ways to create tons of different looks. Each one is a work of, well, complex geometry.

Can we discuss how amazing the Alexander McQueen show was?! The details were incredible, and those shoes...................enough said.
