Made in RVA: Academy jewelry hits Anthropologie.

Well, now I have to buy one. Or all. This is pretty rad: local jewelry designer and all around bodacious lady Rachel Albright’s Academy Jewelry dipped coral necklaces are going global via retail monolith, and furnisher of many a C+C moment, Anthropologie. There I was, just fussing around folding shirts, when I saw the sign […]

Staging a ringtervention.

[All images courtesy Purse ‘n boots.] I was holding a Riedel glass up to the ceiling in the kitchen at the wine bar, examining my polish job under the light for smudges. I am a connaisseur of wine vessels. I appraise them like jewels. A patron saint of transparency in a world where people still […]

Is there concrete all around, or is it in my head?

[Backporch loitering, waiting for the hotdogs to cook up: J.Crew vintage linen tee + True Religion shorts + by Malene Birger key pendant necklace + Club Monaco earrings + Michael Kors huaraches.] Part cat escape narrative + part jewelry post + part recipe. I’d advise you just scroll down to the part about the hotdogs.

Citrine by the Stones Balagan fringe and tassels.

Was emailing with the lovely Citrine by the Stones peeps the other day and they were kind enough to send along the line sheets for their current collections. I didn’t get too far beyond all the glorious fringe of the Balagan collection and had to share. So much fringe I can’t handle it. Need it […]

Like a chupacabra sighting.

Every groovy lady who’s laid eyes on the YSL Ovale ring wants one. And she cannot be blamed. It is chunky, Laurel Canyon-soulful, exotic, and wildly affordable. Oh—and sold out everywhere. [Rumi and her YSL rings, image courtesy Fashiontoast.] The adorable Heather over at Heather in a Candy Shop nudged me over the parapet with […]

Birthday bagues.

My top 5 ring picks. To be added to birthday list bonanza. [Gara Danielle gold-filled turquoise ring, $126.] I am a huge Gara Danielle devotee. Most of my earring collection hails from her tiny corner of the Internet on shopbop.com—big hoops adorned with chunky stones, pearls, and beads. This ring is absolutely stunning. It’s chunky without […]

Birthday balloons.

[Stolen Thunder Girl w/ Balloons brooch, £21.] So eerie, but adorable. Reminds me of my favorite artist, Austin-based Alyson Fox, if her artwork were turned into jewelry. I’d have to change out some of my mainstay vintage political pins for this little darling… on a tattered jean jacket, or the new navy wool tuxedo jacket […]

Cool Change caftan + Alkemie chains.

[Cool Change linen caftan, found on ebay, and Alkemie chain necklace from shopbop.] I love this necklace; awesome art deco accents. And the caftan is one of my favorites—it’s really moody and impractical. When I first wore it a few years ago, my dad asked me if I was dressing for my graduation. It’s ok; […]

Leviticus harness.

I have to have this harness—but before you think I’m talking about some sort of swing apparatus, behold this. This belongs over every one of my A Wang t-shirts for the rest of the season. However, I’m looking down at my torso wondering if this is at all possible or, if I take a deep […]
