Metropolitan Museum of Jewels

Picture 6I just received my catalog from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store and am smitten with these three pairs of antique-y earrings.  I became a member of the museum when I lived in Manhattan last year and it was deadly—not only is the art collection unparalleled, but the gift shop is an art lover’s Eden.  The turquoise and pearl “forget-me-not” sets are based on a design by Peter Carl Fabergé that was popular in 19th century Russia.  The last pair of daisies is also based on a Fabergé design, drawn from an individual flower in his famed Basket of Wild Flowers Egg.  How I adore history…especially when combined with costume jewelry.

Emersonmade Snow Brunch




How darling is this “snow brunch” photo shoot by Emersonmade?  They are so darn clever it kills me!  I just adore the kelly green and wood chairs—don’t they look straight out of a Parisian sidewalk cafe?  Not to mention that she very well may be the most darling girl on the planet.  The gigantic red poppy on her fantastic leopard coat is simply too chic for words.  Love, love, LOVE.  Shop the Emersonmade collection HERE >>>
