Lauren and I have been on a search for the perfect agate pendant necklace for some time now, especially after seeing the Just Cavalli Spring 2011 collection. Our hunt is finally over after discovering Mimi Jung’s debut collection of one of a kind agate jewelry under her label Brook&Lyn. The name of the collection, “surrounded,” is an homage to the process of creating each piece. Each stone’s ring pattern is echoed by a hand crocheted border and the entire piece is then surrounded by rope. So unique and beautiful!
I usually plan my Halloween costume weeks in advance. But this year I’m finding myself scrambling to throw something together last minute (how is it already the end of October???). I’ve been wanting to dress up as Maude Lebowski for awhile now. Or perhaps a drifting nomad? Or a Chanel-clad abominable snowman? Lauren suggested a giant pom pom. What are you guys dressing up as this year?
If you’ve got a thing for reclaimed and salvaged furniture like I do and if your lucky enough to live close to Virginia, you can score some statement tables and benches from Factory 20. Their selection of vintage mirrors and unique objects will also suck you in . . . I never thought I’d need a set of vintage circus juggling pins until now.
The ram has played an important role in the religion and mythology of many cultures, symbolizing strength, power, force, drive, sacrifice, virility and protection. I love that Derek Lam has carried over the ram details in his Resort 2011 handbag collection but what I really need right now is this Alkemie cuff.
