style favorites…

I’m in love with pieces by LA jewelry designer Gabriela Artegas. I snagged her black suede/spike wrap bracelet from OpenSky (at a sweet discount). I love the aged brass spikes and the organic leather as well as the free-from wrap design. Plus, it doubles as a necklace.

I really love everything I’m Your Present (Providence, RI designer Kelly Eident) does. Her stuff is so girly and adorable…this suspender skirt is off the charts cute. You couldn’t go anywhere in this without getting tons of compliments. Plus, most of her stuff is one of a kind.

I love the earthy/vividness of turquoise as well as the modern shape of the brass beads in this necklace from I Was and Will Be.

Ballet style. I love these leather flats with pyramid studs. It adds unexpected edge to a classic look. Plus ballet flats are comfortable, without looking sloppy.

Ballerina style maxi skirts, above. (Shopping tip: H&M has these for about $25.) A fresh take on the iconic tutu of Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City intro, long, light skirts (ivory and blush hues) in fabrics like tulle and chiffon with lots of layers, pleats and draping are flattering and can make a great style statement when paired with edgy accessories, black and denim.
