We all love big, bold jewelry. But the thought of putting on a beautiful chunky necklace on before heading out into the muggy 90 degree heat makes me want to kick someone in the face.  So my go-to summer look is generally hair piled on top of my head and big earrings. Here are some […]

WE ARE HERE

A while back I went to a jewelry sample sale at Midtotwn’s Ace Hotel (which has free wi-fi in the lobby; not that I just go there to use it or anything. Ok, fine I do, but so do a lot of other people).  Anyway.  At said sample sale, there were a bunch of cool designers […]
