Straight to my Heart
I’m excited to say that a few days ago I officially became a Stella & Dot stylist. The line immediately caught my eye and now I am glad to be representing it. I have always been a big fan of small charm necklaces, like this one from S&D. Visit my site here to find your own jewels or shop for the holidays.
Holidays at J.Crew
Normally I like to give shout out’s to smaller up-and-comers rather than big companies but this year J.Crew did something for their holiday season that stood out to me. They have a special section of their website dedicated to celebrity and artist curated selections. My favorite would have to be Lauren Hutton’s page. This classic American beauty picks seminal pieces like the Minnie Pant in Red and the Alpaca Shawl-Collar Cardigan.
Carolina In My Mind
Carolina has been on my mind a lot lately since I won’t get to be there until Christmas Eve. Meanwhile I will settle for these adorable necklaces that remind me home is really where the heart is. I know, totally cheesy but sometimes it helps to wear a little reminder. Ginna Earl sells the necklaces on her Etsy shop here but also has a brick and mortar establishment in my favorite little artsy town in NC, Carrboro. It’s called Vespertine. If you are ever in the area check it out!
I wore this dress to work the other day and my coworker commented that I needed the perfect little red shoe to go with it. Of course a quick Zappos search led me to maybe the most expensive red flat on the site, the beautiful patent red Varina by Salavtore Ferragamo. While I will be dreaming of buying the shoes for the forseable eternity the dress is all mine and can be yours too here. It is from Trunk 13, the cutest little boutique in Savannah. Owner Lindsey updates her Facebook page regularly and takes orders and questions through it.
Handmade on Peconic Bay
Handmade on Peconic Bay is a handmade print company by husband of yesterday’s post feature, Cynthia Rybakoff. Matt Shapoff creates beautiful paper products using 19th century cyanotype techniques in combination with 21st century digital design.
Right now Matt has a variety of cards out for the holiday season but I think my favorites will always be his nautical-inspired prints. Matt has an Etsy site where you can accquire some of these mini pieces of art for your very own!
Mom, I’m Famous!
Design*Sponge came to town a few weeks ago to promote their new book Design*Sponge at Home and for creator Grace Bonney to give a lecture at SCAD. The talk was awesome as is her book which you can buy here. I just have to say that the most awesome part of the whole experience was having the ultimate geek-out moment of being (inadvertantly) FEATURED on D*S. Yes, that’s right folks, I’m famous. Click here and see below. Hells yeah. (I’m in the hot pink shirt)
Last spring I had the pleasure of meeting jewelry designer Cynthia Rybakoff at Brooklyn shopping haunt Artists & Fleas. Not only is she super nice but her designs are beautiful. I bought a gorgeous sterling silver necklace with a petite shell engraved on the pendant. I am loving her new collection, Mixed Messages, that debuted at Bendel’s for Fashion’s Night Out. The gold is classic and the geometry of the pieces give them a modern edge.
