good morning seattle

(T by Alexander Wang Dress, Theyskens’ Theory Kitten Heels, House of Harlow Rings)

Took a little trip up to Portland and Seattle, including a drive through that infamous town of vampiric fame, Forks.  I failed to find any sparkly, sharp-toothed men, but it was interesting to see how eighty percent of the establishments had named or renamed themselves to pertain to the Twilight trilogy.

More interesting was my short visit to Seattle.  Was able to stop by the best Nordstroms I’ve ever seen.  Celine!  Alexander Wang!  Be still my beating heart… Apparently it’s the flagship, at least, that was what the very polite and attentive staff told me.  The Army Surplus storefront was also full of boots and bags that I was keen to get my hands on, but I only caught sight of that the night before my departure.  Guess I’ll have to head back to Seattle again soon!


the summer jewels

I did a Polyvore set a little while ago that revolved around rose gold and my obsession with it, so I thought I’d line up my staples this summer in the jewelry department for a post.  The only things missing from these photos are my silver Dannjio collar necklace, Pamela Love pentacle cuff, and the rose gold shark tooth necklace that I got from here on Etsy.  No oversized Givenchy shark tooth necklace for me, but the Etsy alternative was a well-priced and dainty alternative.

The pieces pictured include my Jewelmint fringed cuffs–which I’m entirely obsessed with.  I usually have an adversity to yellow gold because it isn’t as flattering on my skin tone as silver or rose gold, but these cuffs are ultra fun and a nice dark gold that suits me much better than most gold tones.  Furthermore, they can be worn with the fringe inwards for a more modern look or with the fringe outwards for a more bohemian vibe.  Versatile!  They are hands down my favorite purchase from Jewelmint, ever.

Also pictured are stackable House of Harlow rose gold rings, Wildfox rose gold earrings and white fox earrings, a chevron beaded bracelet that I purchased from a vendor at Coachella, my Low Luv silver ring, Isabel Marant red tassel earrings, and a four lead clover ring from Jewelmint.
