Industrial chic Just got Better!

22 Apr

If you follow me on any social media platform, it is no secret that I have a small obsession with Giles & Brother railroad spike bracelets.  I have so many styles of jewelry that I wear from dainty to colorful to bold, but my all time love would be modern/minimal pieces.  The Giles & Brother railroad spikes are super minimal with a bit of edge. The railroad spikes come in three sizes Original(thick) Skinny(medium)and Mini(thin) my preference has always been the “skinny”size  but I recently ordered the mini and I love it, it’s super dainty and delicate. How could these bracelets possibly get any better you ask???? Well, they are now available in precious metals!!! YES!!!!  If you’re a jewelry connoisseur you can rock a SOLID GOLD G&B bracelet!!!  These bracelets are also unisex which is very cool!

G&B bracelets are available in different finishes including brass, hematite, yellow gold tone, rose gold tone and silver tone. Sterling silver is also an option and solid gold(rose & yellow).

Wear Your Memories With This Cool Bracelet!

19 Dec

I think I may have found the coolest bracelet EVER!  I have always loved industrial, yet feminine jewelry, so I was instantly smitten when I layed eyes on these.  Coordinates Collection bracelets and rings are great because they show the latitude and longitude of any place in the world that you choose. You can pick a place where you first met someone, went to school or had a life achievement i.e. graduation, baby, marriage etc.  That’s not all……on the inside,  you can get a special date engraved and a message as well. These are just so cool and I’m gonna be wearing mine all the time!!!!

Coordinates rings start at $130 and bracelets start at $204. The price depends on the style and the material. For example the plated bracelets start at a couple hundred dollars and the solid rose or yellow gold can set you back thousands of dollars. You can also add birthstones for a bit extra as well. The pieces are all unisex  and come in different sizes. Although they may be an investment piece, these wearable memories will be with you for a lifetime!

Not a ring person? How cute are these bracelets  instead of wedding rings?!!! Just a thought. Get all matchy matchy with your hubby or wife!

NYFW Carolina Herrera S/S 2013

Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

What a pleasant surprise!!!! I must admit I’ve come to expect the same beautiful collections from Carolina Herrera, she has a very easy to identify aesthetic, almost predictable.  This collection, however was not the norm for her.  Was it beautiful as usual? yes!  Was it the same as usual?……not at all!  For a change, this collection included so many fresh and modern pieces in addition to her usual gowns.  The lines were clean, most looks were belted at the waist and there was plenty of color and geometric prints. The embellished collars were pretty amazing too. I am totally impressed…..I know designers can venture out of their fashion box only to find disastrous results, not this time…… well done!
