Designer Jewelry for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve requested flourless chocolate cake and designer jewelry. One of those can be homemade. We’re low-maintenence like that. Cartier, Tiffany and David Yurman just make excellent presents, that’s all. And even better if your Valentine is smart enough to shop estate.

Bright turquoise can range from punchy and preppy to earthy and crunchy, depending on where the stones are from. Tanzanite’s purplish blue depths are regal and eye catching. Zircon and blue topaz recall frozen perfection. They’re all beautiful, icy stones that contrast with the warm Read More →

My Favorite Costume Jewelry Brands

My first accessory love was handbags. I hoarded Coach – the classiest of leather and vinyl goods, friends – as a teenager. I collected them for every birthday and holiday, and saved up all my babysitting money to spend on brightly colored bags with C’s all over them. In college my tastes matured to the more demure all over monogram of Louis Vuitton. In a reflection of my truly unique and one of a kind style, my first Louis was the Speedy 35 that Every Girl On Campus also brought to class (impractical), Happy Hour (why on earth?), and shopping (again, hands Read More →
