My sister introduced me to these gorgeous, inspirational bracelets.  Jeanine Payer is an artist turned jewelry designer who moved to San Francisco to expand her vision.  Her work is so complex and beautiful…

I really like the geometric trend that has resurfaced.

Love the sentimentality of the locket

18 May

Saw these beautiful french lockets and immediately thought of my sisters.  These would be beautiful on each of them, and I wonder who’s pics they would place in their petite locket…

Vintage inspired PUSH jewelry line

11 May

Robynn Molina has created a fresh take on vintage inspired pieces for her PUSH collection.  Her line includes delicate bangles, chunky rings, and sentimental necklaces.  She is a LA-based artist who designs with an economic savvy price point in mind.  WE can actually afford these pieces!!  I am in love with her typeset rings that are a retrospect of a 50’s classic with a modern twist!  Kudo’s and props to Robynn for making something new and not conforming to the masses.  I am so tired of seeing the same dull designs.  She is a visionary with the latest collection…

Hair love

30 Apr

My sister Kayce recently chopped off eight inches of her hair.  This cut looks amazing; reminds me of Heidi Klum when she opted for mid lenth. 

State necklaces

27 Apr

I am originally from San Antonio Texas, and I love many, many things about the great state.  My grandparents live in Bandera and I spent many summers visiting them in the little ranch community.  Most of my positive childhood memories are of time spent outdoors in Texas.  I love the smell of the pecan tree’s and I believe if there is a God she gave us blue bonnets to give us a hint of perfection.   They grow wild on the side of the highways throughout Texas, so driving in the summer you feel like Monet painted the landscape in lavender.

I was fascinated by the wild creatures in Texas.  Scorpions are abundant and oddly beautiful.  Road runners are the most hilarious looking creature walking on two legs and they have so many snakes you have to check underfoot before going for a hike.  Don’t even get me started on the armadillo’s-hilarious, versatile little animals you will NOT find in the midwest.   

However the absolute best aspect of Texas besides the Mexican food and barbecue are the people.  I spent nine months working at a live horse track after high school while taking pottery classes.  Many of the people I met and know are larger than life characters; not intimidated by idle chit-chat and say amazing things like “ya’ll” and “fixin to.”  It is the friendliest region in my experience and they wear cowboy hats to boot!  They do this as a fashion statement and necessity; cowgirls and cowboys are in abundance.  People still ride horses down the road as a mode of transportation, not for sport.

Some days my heart still pines for Texas, so let me address the fashion…I found this amazing jewelry designer who makes state necklaces!!  This designer is an artist in every sense of the word!

 

Tom’s the man

23 Apr
I absolutely adore Tom shoe’s and am head over heels for the gorgeous philanthropist that created the brand!  My soul is moved by the human connection of social causes.  Perhaps it is because I was a social worker and my father is a devoutly faithful man with a progressive perspective as well as being a social worker.  REGARDLESS, you cannot look at this man and not find him attractive.  I typically think aesthetic beauty is subjective, but some are the exception being universally appealing.  That said, the new Tom wedges are pretty gorgeous as well…
