I visited ABC Home in NYC recently and admired their jewelry. Somewhat overpriced, even for such a store, but I found these two online that are more affordable and still interesting.

Kim Dulaney posted some new jewelry recently, too. I love all three of these, but only the first is still available.

Love this top from Madewell. I like this sleeve length for summer – covers up the upper arms, which tend to get cold in air conditioned places:

I’ve got these in the pump from a couple of seasons back, and I love them. The clog is really fun, too.

Notes of love on Valentine’s Day

February 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

It’s time to get those Valentine’s Day cards in the mail!

I sometimes use V-Day as an excuse to drop a note of love and appreciation to my friends and family. This top one from Paper Source is my favorite all-purpose card of the year. The others are a few more romantically-themed offerings. As always, pretty cards and notes are ideally purchased in stationary stores, but the Web’s all I’ve got this year!

Here and Nau: Scarves!

Nau just put some lovely scarves on sale.

They’re still between $60 and $70, but in my experience with Nau, you are really paying for quality. It’s nice stuff that’s going to last. And as always, their color palate is so pretty.

I’ve only included images of women, but most of the scarves are considered unisex. My favorite’s at top – the Wide Merino Barre Scarf – but they’re all very handsome and versatile!
