Charlotte Chesnais worked alongside Nicolas Ghesquière for nine years, while piloting the launch of Balenciaga’s jewelry line, before recently launching her eponymous collection. The fluidity of her gold plated and silver jewelry is inspired by the geometric and elongated sculptures of Constantin Brancusi and Alberto Giacometti. We can’t help but be completely mesmerized by the way each piece so sensually hugs and spirals around the ebbs and flows of the hands and ears.
The tree is trimmed, the lights are strung and some presents are wrapped. Despite this über busy time of year, I can’t help but bask in the holiday spirit, especially with Quincy by my side. There’s so much curiosity in this little sponge of a two year old, I sometimes struggle with finding enough time to experience it all with him. At the same time, it’s comforting to know that even the most ordinary activities can resonate with him and absolutely light him up! So as part of Gap‘s Styld.By holiday campaign, Q and I took a little holiday outing, in our best California winter wares, to deliver treats and gifts to our friends and neighbors. He had an absolute blast and hasn’t stopped talking about it since. And really, that means everything.
For the city girl, who lives in a shoebox and needs help de-cluttering so that she can add all the new chic gifts she’s about to receive for Christmas:
Wow. I’m beyond smitten with this floral tree that Bri Emery and her team dreamed up for holidays. It’s so flippin’ beautiful, I’m this close to purchasing another tree this weekend just so I can make my own. Imagine having this colorful tree up all year round! 365 days of pure joy. Head over to DesignLoveFest for the full tutorial . . .
There’s something about Electric Feather‘s eighties-inspired, minimalist vibe that I’m irresistibly drawn to. Harem pants, belted jumpsuits, and layered skirts dance between casual and dressy. And despite their exaggerated volumes, the pieces manage to look unfussy and tailored. The collection oozes plenty of cool factor and I want it in my closet. Now.
