I hated the flavor of pineapples up until a few years ago, but I’ve always loved the way they look. A vintage brass pineapple ice bucket is actually one of my prized possessions*, but the obsession certainly doesn’t end there. I’d love to own this Tory Burch tunic or even this cute ice cube tray, but this pair of earrings is topping my wish list. I came across Three Jane on Instagram the other day and fell for the bold cocktail-ready earrings by designer Katie Schloss. You’ll learn more about her in next week’s “Behind the Baubles” feature.
As much as I love gigantic statement earrings, you’ll only see me wear them occasionally. Why? One of my biggest fears is becoming an old lady with droopy earlobes* after wearing them for decades. Thankfully, there are plenty of gorgeous button earrings that pack as much punch as their chandelier cousins. All of the studs featured here are by Gerard Yosca and they’re anything but boring. My favorites are the daisies. They’re the perfect amount of retro chic and would look fabulous with a shift dress this spring. Browse the entire collection of button earrings here and if you also love the daisy earrings, you’ll be smitten with the new Flowerball collection.
*Dave insists that there’s probably a surgery for that. If doctors can fix the earlobes of people who wear plugs, they can probably fix old lady lobes. And if I happen to develop them over time, you bet I’ll be hashtagging #OldLadyLobes on Instagram.
Whenever a designer incorporates real stones into costume jewelry, I’m sold, especially when it comes to rich blue-greens of chrysocolla and amazonite that remind me of the ocean.
To say I’m obsessed with Lulu Frost’s latest collection would be a bit of an understatement. Each of the Egyptian-inspired tassel pieces are irresistible, but the Eternal Life Tassel Necklace is undoubtedly my favorite of the bunch. The lapis scarab slides up and down the chain to customize the look for your outfit.
