Rossmore ring

After a spending a couple of years with catbird-esque hands full of silver and golden threads, I’ve become more and more partial to singular, standout jewelry. Feeling the winds of change (or just trend over-saturation), I’ve returned to an old favorite to replace my usual necklace and stacking rings. It’s nice to switch things up and I’m really feeling simplicity these days.

This ring is an early issue from Rossmore that I bought when I first learned of the line four years ago. I like the impact it has when worn with little competition. If I hadn’t promised my grandmother to never take off my bangle, I’d wear it with nothing else.

And I mean no other jewelry. I’d totally still be wearing clothes.
 

The Linen Blazer

Helmut Lang linen twill blazer

Another grail found.  Another Fall MVP in the making. Yes, it’s still 90 degrees here.

I won’t go into the back history since many of you have seen the version of the black one play out.  This one has pretty much the same story that starts circa summer of 2011, except it ends this past Sunday with me finding the actual item on eBay and clicking Buy it Now as soon as I saw that the option was available.  In the words of Mariah aka Mariah Paris aka Mariah Successful, “Baby when it’s right, it’s right.”

And you know what? It’s alright.

 


Anna Says…

I really admire Anna Wintour. Her manner, consistency, and decisiveness have always really impressed me.  In short, I want to be just like her when I grow up.
