Holiday Party!

I am throwing my first jewelry party at my house and would love to be able to give my guests a pair of slippers upon their arrival. We have carpeting in our new apartment and it's off white and weather in Chicago has been digusting this week. I would love to claim the idea as my own but it's totally a Martha Stewart trick.

Look what just made my Christmas list...
Thanks LL Bean and D&D for inspiration.

My weekend kicked off with a trip to the MCA for their first Friday event. It was an interesting scene with a lot of single ladies. I did snag this from the gift shop though. It's a level ring. I love it and haven't stopped being enamored with it. It actually works too! Check it out.

To be Michelle Obama

Michelle is one lucky lady these days. For a lot of obvious reasons but in my opinion the best part of her life right now is having the top designers from all over the world design her potential inaugural ball gowns. Shown here is Koi Suwannagate's sketch. I think Mich would pick this one because it's stunning and it's by a not-as- well- known designer.

I also love MJ's look...and Michael that cobalt is smashing...
Also worthy of note... Leanne Marshall!
Thanks to Coco+Kelly for directing me to this.

Also please be sure to check out these guys. You gotta love Chris March!

Michelle, if you're reading I think this would look absolutely stunning with any of the aforementioned dresses.

Straight through my heart.

I am loving this necklace by Deka Ray. I would just be concern that the arrows would poke me. There is nothing worse the poking or loud jewelry. This chick has some really cool ideas. Definitely worth checking out. I discovered this piece on Gargyle. I am now going to email them to see if they'd be interested in picking up some of my pieces...

Shake it.

Today's Daily Candy NYC introduced me to Catbird and Elisa Soloman's brilliant Shake Necklaces. I love this idea because I can not tell you how many scraps of beads, sterling silver, and gold I have and for some reason I haven't been able to create magic out of them.

Also worthy of notation: letter earrings by Cat Bird. Hello EO. Or FU. For my Alma Mater of course ;)

Welcome December and Chicago winters! This morning there was a shallow white blanket covering the ground outside my apartment. It's increasing getting deeper and at first I was not pleased to see the sight of snow but am definitely enjoying watching the snow fall outside. Also what better way to get in the Christmas spirit? This necklace is Tarjay and only $20... how cute and festive! Also the perfect gift at the perfect price! Did I mention it's sterling silver?
