Dear Rae

I’m always on the hunt for simple yet timeless pieces of jewelry to incorporate into my favorite mixes. So it’s no wonder that South African designer Karin Rae Matthee‘s collection of gold and brass bands and bracelets are right up my bright and shiny alley. I’m also especially loving the little gemstone ring worn on the pinky finger!


Estate in Extremadura

Architectual firm Ábaton transformed an abandoned stable into a gorgeous stone estate in the province of Cáceres, Spain. Sustainability is key as the property’s remote location relies on the sun and two naturally flowing streams for power, via solar panels and turbines. The modern interior design melds so beautifully with the rough and rustic exterior – I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in this dream home?!


Saint Laurent Spring 2013

The news of Yves Saint Laurent evolving into Saint Laurent, announced months before Paris Fashion Week, had everyone eagerly anticipating the label’s debut under the direction of newly appointed Hedi Slimane. Sure, the name had been shortened but there was certainly no shortage of glamour and swagger. Oversized fedoras, floor sweeping skirts, glittery capes and le smoking tuxedos screamed 70s rock ‘n’ roll. We absolutely loved it and are dying to get our hands on one of those stunning hats by next spring.
