coffee black and egg white

21/08/2009, jewelry

I was getting ready to leave the house tonight and noticed the fast fading sun hitting my dresser in a strangely heavenly way. I had enough time to take three pictures before the marine layer enveloped it and altered everything.

Gotten a lot of jewelry questions lately so here we go:

  • the studded/stackable rings are from Forever 21..bought last winter I think?
  • the knuckle ring and cross earrings are Elizabeth and James, absolute staples
  • the blue shield ring I bought at a ramshackle store on the PCH
  • the watch (I use the term loosely since I haven’t actually taken it to someone who can make it functional since buying it) is vintage..probably the only watch I’ve ever liked in my life, I’m largely uninterested in knowing what time it is
  • the interlocking/woven-look ring is on semi-permanent borrow from my beloved Kristin
  • and since I’m morbidly addicted to the stuff, here’s what I’m contemplating right now: free people crystal palace ring + pamela love cross ring + iosselliani feather cuff

  1. I get a lot of questions about my bra choices..I lean towards no wire, triangle silhouettes, bondage-y elastic, and thin straps. From left to right: Forever 21, H&M, Lux, and Alexander Wang. I’m dreaming about this one by Savant.
  2. Chocolate mint tea and my favorite vintage necklace.
  3. Thrifted shoes..the only way I can make sense of them is to look at them as trimmed down cowboy boots. I will love them more once they stop giving me blisters.
  4. Keeping jewelry on the kitchen counter makes it easy to accessorize on the way out the door. Though your boyfriend might not appreciate the perpetual tiny bit of extra clutter.
  5. My three favorite OPI nail polishes – Got the Blues for Red, Light My Sapphire, and My Private Jet. This hasn’t changed in the past two years.
  6. This Forever 21 shorts romper I bought last spring is just so pretty.
  7. Current shoe rack.
  8. The magazines I keep by the couch. My favorites right now are Russh, Jalouse, and Vivi.
  9. More things to grab on the way out.

And finally the AMAZING LANVIN platform sandals that Lucrecia from fashionispoison sent me..I’m still in shock that I can wear them..so much so that I’m kind of scared of them. Worn here with the American Apparel mesh dress, one of my latest AA acquisitions along with the oversized sheer T. Thank you Lucrecia and have fun in NYC!

old silver tray

I have jewelry scattered all around our place..necklaces hanging from metal trees, bracelets crammed up unused shelving hangers, mirrored jewelry boxes. But most of my current loves end up in this silver tray I picked up at Goodwill. Makes it less prone to being kicked around by Kumo, the more rambunctious of our two cats. I swear he had to have been a soccer player in a previous life the way he takes joy in batting just about everything around.

Most everything is vintage/secondhand, a couple pieces from Forever 21..then my beloved Korcula necklace and Elizabeth and James knuckle ring.
