After three generations, Repossi Joailliers continues to carry on it’s rich and traditional legacy with Gaia Repossi at the artistic helm of the company. Though she’s influenced the brand with modernity and youth, occasionally in collaboration with tastemakers like Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra and Vanessa Traina, the storied skill of ancient metalsmiths is still preserved in the jewelry. I especially love Repossi’s now iconic yellow gold ear cuff and the use of black gold in some of the Moorish designs – but let’s be honest, I’d settle for any of these timeless gold stunners!


DIY Embroidered Sunglasses

What do you do when the probability of scoring a pair of Ulyana Sergeenko‘s embroidered sunglasses is, at best, 1 in a million? Do it yourself, of course. Though I couldn’t replicate these folk-inspired sunnies at nearly the same degree (we’re talking couture after all), I was able to add just the right amount of embroidery for a similar effect. So, what do you say? Grab a pair of inexpensive sunglasses and let’s get stitchin’!

You’ll need:

  • a pair of sunglasses with plastic lenses
  • embroidery floss
  • hand held drill (I used a Dremel, last used here)
  • 3/64″ drill bit
  • thin needle
  • scissors
  • felt tip marker
  • nail polish remover


Bellerose Spring 2013

Putting a rebellious and outdoorsy twist on east coast prep, Bellerose is simply killing it with their spring lookbook. I love the layering of plaid, stripes, neutrals, and camo accessorized with socks under booties, braids in the hair and of course, colorful parrots propped on the shoulder. Polly want a cracker?


Little Drawers

Vintage letterpress drawers, card catalogs, printer drawers and apothecary cabinets are all perfect places to store your tiny treasures. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a letterpress drawer for a long time before I starting looking online at Etsy and Ebay. And it turns out Craigslist came to my rescue with someone giving away seven letterpress drawers for free. Bingo. Persistence is key!
