DIY Vintage Statement Necklace

I’m addicted to collecting vintage rhinestone necklaces. Not only can they be inexpensive, they are great pieces to DIY with since most of the time, they are much too small to fit comfortably around the neck. And thanks to the jewelry trailblazers behind Lulu Frost, Dylanlex and Dannijo, I was inspired to rework some sparklers that were just not sufficient enough to wear on their own. It’s a straightforward project, as long as you have the right tools and tips . . . which of course, I’ll share with you. Follow along!

Byron Bay With The Bromleys

Just by glancing at this Byron Bay home, you can immediately guess it belongs to an artist. And indeed it does – or did. Australian painter David Bromley once resided in this eclectically decorated home, after renovating it with his fashion designer wife. With art and charming touches everywhere, this house looks loved and lived in. And how about that outdoor guest house, backyard studio, sculpture garden and Airstream trailer?! Amazing.

Issa Pre-Fall 2014

Mayfair, London’s most attractive villages, was the inspiration behind creative director Blue Farrier’s first collection for Issa. The clothing included a silk pajama suit, a paisley jacquard bomber jacket, jersey wrap dresses, high waisted trousers, and silk blouses with clusters of gems at the neck. Most of the collection was dominated by black and cream with highlights of emerald green, the prettiest rusty orange, and gold lurex. Clean and oh so ladylike.
