FashionTake a Bow

Feminine, flirty and fun, bows are taking the spotlight when it comes to fashion accessories!

Move over Minnie Mouse — this fun trend is no longer reserved for the girly girl, but for the girl with a unique, funky style. Tie ’em up in your hair, sport ’em as a pair of earrings or on a necklace, and you’ll be the bow of the ball!

Get in on the trend here at your favorite bow-tique with our Bowdacious Earrings [sold out!], Bow-tie-ful Lady Necklace and Bow Peep Earrings in Ivory.


FashionTrend to Try: Retro Fascinators

Retro style is making a comeback as girls of the 21st century look back to the days of Hollywood glam for inspiration. The hair and the makeup were always flawlessly and artfully done, and the accessories were ever present.

I love that I spotted a couple retro fascinators paired with cocktail dresses on New Year’s Eve (myself included).  :)  Fascinators can be found in so many fun styles and colors, whether true vintage or just vintage-inspired. And if you need a little example of how to rock the look, Dita Von Teese never fails to impress. As a woman who lives and breathes vintage, she has got the look down.

Feeling inspired? Go ahead and give our Retro Reminisce Fascinator [sold out!] a try for the next time you want to stand out in a crowd.

FashionNew Year Hot Spot Style: Manuel Antonio National Park

Beach. That is all you need to know about this New Year’s adventure.

But not just any beach. If I were to have my New Year’s way, I would head to the Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica located south of Quepos on the Pacific Coast, 132 km from San José. Tours through the park are available, including a rain forest walk where you might be so lucky as to spy a sloth!

Coastal Manuel Antonio at night is pitch black, being lit only by the moon — perfect for some stargazing. Instead of the big count-down at midnight, I would suggest quietly bringing in the New Year with a few good friends or your sweetie on the sands.

With spring coming, this would be a perfect place to try out next season’s trends: the Pocket Change Necklace in Gold [sold out!], the Silk Arboretum Maxi Dress, and the Bamboo Poetic 04 Gray and Silver WhipStitched T Thong

FashionLove Conquers All : Omnia Vincit Amor

There are many new and hot figures flirting with the cameras about town in NYC these days, but there is one in particular that has caught my attention again and again. I have to admit, he was the only Sikh man in all of the “who’s who” party pictures on, and he was in sooooo many of them that I couldn’t help wondering who he was.

His name is Waris Ahluwalia, of the House of Waris jewelry company. Waris jewelry could charm almost anyone, gleaming with precious gems and whimisical fantasy. In order to keep up such a business, Waris can be seen working around the clock to keep on the cutting edge of the world of the socialites.

Not only is Waris an amazing jewelry designer, he is also an actor. Waris premiers in the Darjeeling Limited as the train conductor but is also in The Life Aquatic. I LOVE Wes Anderson movies, so this was awesome to find out!

Here, below and to the left, are Waris’ earrings. On the right, here’s a LuLu*s necklace [sold out!] that is reminiscent of his style and use of gemstones (although our necklace does not actually have real gemstones in it).

FashionNew Year Hot Spot Style: Ginza

Not sure about the rest of you fashionistas out there, but right after, “What did you get for Christmas?” the question I’m getting is, “What are you doing for New Years?”.

With only four days left, I still have no idea what I will be doing … but I know what I would like to do! Barring money, travel, and time, here is the first of four awesome New Year’s Eve destinations I would love to visit (and the outfits I would love to wear!)

Ginza is an upscale part of Tokyo with luxurious shopping and high fashion everywhere. The flagship stores of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci are always lit up, creating one of the most beautiful city nights I have ever seen. Having been to both, I dare say Ginza is brighter, even, than Times Square.

Class would be the name of my game — including a midnight toast at the Icebar Tokyo, a bar made entirely of, you guessed it, ice. Everything from walls, the bar, tables, and even glasses are made of ice. A jacket is provided in the Icebar Tokyo, but I would walk in wearing the Little Time Dress and Nekhbey Necklace in Gold [sold out!]. Simple, sophisticated, stylish … kind of like Ginza itself.

But let’s not be square bears — a splash of color is needed!  Jeffrey Campbell Pacific Teal Leather Double Ruffle Heels it is!
