lions and tigers & bears...oh my!

it was love at first sight... this new urban twist on the animal & nature trend. The once banal concept is starting to pop up roses. It's now something positively dripping with chic-ness and a luscious rock edge. Jewelry designer Pamela Love is my absolute favorite designer right now. She's an assistant to Francesco Clemente during the day and has collaborated with Zac Posen, Yigal Azrouel, and Marchesa. And did I mention she shares an atelier with none other than Julia Restoin-Roifeld, daughter of Paris Vogue's Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld. that's what I'd call a girl who's dreaming right. I covet her creations madly... especially the two-bear ring where little bear cubs seem to be peeking out from beneath lovely fingers. 

the gothic, wandering heart in you... will beat wildly for Digby & Iona.
It's jewelry to go out in. Be fierce and wild in. Fall deeply & madly in love at midnight in some bar - all disheveled and gorgeous in. You know who you are ;) 

And for a Rock & Roll Safari... Angelina-Jolie style...Alex & Chloé kicks it all to the curb with their crazy, lovely full antler necklace...

    ...enjoying your blog!!

  2. Wow! Thank you. Mahalo & Merci (Am from Hawaii and married to a French Chef!). I, too, have a wandering heart! So happy you found me. I love your blog as well. I am new to the blog-sphere so hope by leaving this post you will see it. Am still figuring this all out.

    Freelance journalist and 9-to-5er at a design agency, I missed my magazine editor & stylist days so this blog is a safe heaven to explore my creative wings after a day using the good ol' skillz to pay the billz (to quote the Beastie Boys) :P

    Thanks for commenting!
