The Lariat Necklace Shines On Candice Swanepoel for Free People

candice-swanepoel-free-people-2014-2

Free People’s latest look book is one part boho chic and one part sexy city girl, thanks to the brand’s newest campaign model, Candice Swanepoel. We love the styling- all the way from the over the top volume down to the embossed platform birkenstock-inspired slides.

The collection is right on time, too! Our Lariat necklace, made exclusively for Free People, looks stunning on the South African super model. Check out how Candice rocks the Lariat necklace, below, and head over FreePeople.com while they last!

Met Gala 2014: Standout Looks!

Sarah-Jessica-Parker-Met-Gala-2014

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual charity gala came and went like a whirlwind, and the stars really brought their A-game! Designers showed comradery by supporting their peers (i.e. Marc Jacobs wearing Saint Laurent.) Actors and musicians wowed in custom creations, some walking the carpet with the designers. However, the Victoria’s Secret models seemed to prove who does it best, wearing surprisingly stunning Top Shop and classic silhouettes (like Karlie Kloss in De La Renta, opera gloves and all.)

Being that this is THE fashion event of the year for Manhattan and, really, the fashion world, we appreciate over-the-top glamour. We loved seeing new silhouettes and color pairings, separates, and lots of volume. The Olsen Twins donned vintage Chanel, which was an unexpected twist that still offered lots of drama. Speaking of drama, we couldn’t keep our eyes off of Zac Posen’s room-filling gowns. Are favorites are Dita Von Teese’s neoprene nude and red fishtail gown and Liu Wen’s ocean waves.

Check out our favorites below. Images via NYT.

Mario Testino Displays His Photos of Beautiful Native Peruvian Clothing

Screen shot 2013-11-21 at 4.46.13 PM

Famed photographer Mario Testino took a different turn with his highly acclaimed work to capture the breathtakingly colorful clothing of Native Peruvians of the mountainous region of Cusco. His exhibit is called “Alta Moda” or High Fashion in Spanish. The fabulous photos will be on display at the Queen Sophia Spanish Institute in New York until March 29th, 2014. The images are vivid and truly inspirational. The color and texture, along with musical and cultural elements really set these photos apart from lots of mainstream fashion photography.

Queen Sofía Spanish Institute, under the chairmanship of Oscar de la Renta, is the first American venue to present ALTA MODA, a series of photographic portraits by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino. Known primarily for his work in fashion magazines, Testino makes a bold departure with this series. Alta Moda—literally “high fashion” in Spanish—documents Peruvians in their vibrantly colored and ornately adorned traditional and festive dress from Cusco, one of the highest mountainous regions of Peru. ALTA MODA by Mario Testino is accompanied by a series of related public programs that will additionally serve to reinforce the Institute’s mission of promoting greater awareness and understanding of the culture of Spain in the United States through a steadfast dedication to advancing scholarship in the humanities and the arts. Please check the website www.qssi.org for a schedule of events.

So, if you happen to be in the city during the next 4 months, take a day to mosey on over to the exhibit. For now, check out some of the photos below!

Norbu Bijoux in Williamsburg, BK

IMG_5052

We are finally back in Miami but we already miss NYC! For those of you lucky enough to be in New York right now, make sure to take a trip over to Norbu in Williamsburg. The cozy boutique is home to many amazing jewelry designers, including Cecilia Gonzales’ line of beautiful pieces. While we were in the city we, of course, had to stop by and see how everything was going.

The store has jewelry displays as far as the eye can see- you can easily spend hours in the store just wandering from designer to designer. The store is peaceful- you really start to feel at home and comfortable, which is nice in the day and age of fast fashion and even faster transactions. Take a second to breathe in the light scents and enjoy the natural sunlight pouring into the wood-adorned boutique. The jewelry in this shop is all hand picked by Sang, the shop owner, and beautifully curated alongside special gift items.
