Flowers that live on, long past Valentine’s Day

While I’m not big on fake flowers (sorry fake flower fans!) I am big on real flowers, especially when they’re used in a way as gorgeous as the modern, made-to-order resin floral jewelry spotted at Modern Flower Child on Etsy. Each piece from this Oregon artist is entirely one-of-a-kind, as Sarah incorporates real flowers, grasses, and bits of foliage into resin to beautiful effect. It’s funny but from that description alone, I wouldn’t think I would like them. Then I take a look at the result and actually I think they’re quite stunning. That birch bark bangle is just awesome. Or if you’re crushing...

A Valentine’s gift that gives back with heart

I’m so happy to find this new addition to our list of cool, affordable Valentine’s gifts for her: The new Kindred Cord heart bracelet from Alex and Ani, designed to help support Project (RED). For just $21, you get this sweet red nylon cord bracelet with a sterling, gold, or rose-gold plated heart. It’s expandable, meaning it should fit anyone from your favorite tween or teen to an adult sweetheart. I’ve even seen it on some cool dudes; the kinds who can get away with a wristful of bangles. But the nicest part might be that a full 20% of...

The best best friend gift for a Wonder Woman in your life

When I saw these Wonder Woman cuffs (excuse me…Wonder Woman inspired cuffs) from artist Jaq Jones, I added them to our own shop faster than you can spin around three times and find yourself wearing a sexy strapless leotard and red vinyl go-go boots. By the artist’s own admission they are a little costumey, so I wouldn’t wear both at once. But I love the idea of grabbing one for yourself and giving one to a great friend. Like a new interpretation of a friendship bracelet. Only it won’t fall apart after 6 weeks of swim lessons at summer camp. Or hey,...

Accessories to covet for spring: Cream, off-white and ivory, oh my.

This all-black loving woman is suddenly eyeing spring accessories in various shades of cream, and I can only imagine that it’s some sort of uncontrolled visceral reaction to 8 million years of winter that we just got through in the northeast. (That’s a rough estimate; it could be closer to 9 million years but I’d have to do the math.) If you’re starting to freshen up your own wardrobe with a few lighter, brighter accessories, take a look at these gorgeous options in various shades of ivory, cream, ecru, and off-white. They’re definitely little splurges, but the kind that can...

Fringe-worthy: 8 hot tassel jewelry pieces for spring

I recently found myself in the mall shopping for an outfit to wear to a Downton Abbey-themed party. A drop-waist dress proved hard to find, but I had no trouble locating vintage-inspired accessories. Tassel jewelry, a hot trend in the 1920s, is making a comeback — did you see Margot Robbie at the Oscars? — and I couldn’t be more excited. There’s just something super fun about wearing fringe around your neck, wrist, or on your ears. Whether your style swings Art Deco or Bohemian, here are eight gorgeous tassel jewelry pieces I love to help update your look this spring. Even better: seven of...
