As usual I am in love with Erin Considine’s new collection. Her mix of metals and textiles leads to such a beautiful, organic and rustic marriage in jewelry. Also, can we talk about how beautiful the light and the model in her Spring 2013 Lookbook are? Swoon.


Jewelry I Love Right Now

I had every intention of finishing up the Holiday Gift Guide posts I had planned, but instead I spent the end of last week and all weekend sick on my couch. I realize it may be too late for this holiday season, but I thought I would post some of the collections I have been bookmarking for the past few weeks. First up is jewelry!

1. Future Standard Astrology Necklaces

I have had my eye on these dainty astrological sign necklaces for awhile now. They would also make great birthday gifts.

2. Catbird Heart Ring

Sweet. Simple. Perfect.

3. Noble Town Vintage

I love the geometric shape and that they’d be swingy on my ears.

4. Collette Ishiyama

I have obsessed over the Collette Ishiyama collection since I saw photos from her Lookbook posted online months ago. Brass and stingray, so chic.

5. Stone and Honey

Love, love, love these long dangling earrings. The turquoise beads, clear quartz and black triangle combination is so perfect.

6. Fail Jewelry

I bought my bridesmaid’s gifts from Christine Fail’s Etsy shop and she couldn’t have been kinder or more gracious. I love so many of her pieces, but I keep going back to these bangles.


I love a statement necklace. I want to wear this one with a white v-neck T, a long cardigan, jeans and boots.

A Very Special Anniversary

On Friday The Quail and I celebrated nine years together! The day was extra special because we picked up my engagement ring and wedding band from the extremely gracious and talented Blanca Monros Gomez. We went to her Park Slope studio in March to look at rings. I chose a diamond solitaire in rose gold with a matching rose gold and diamond band, and she handmade them in the following weeks. The rings came out beautifully, they are simple, delicate and so pretty. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Blanca is so sweet and lovely and, for me, supporting a local artist rather than a big jewelry store was very important. Afterward we had a very long and wine-filled lunch at Benchmark, which is also in Park Slope. We toasted to spending the rest of our lives together. It was a sweet, sunny and romantic afternoon.
