Munnu Rose and Round-Cut Diamond Bangles
To me jewelry is much more than just an accessory. It is a way of life. In my mind, each piece I own is empowered with the occasion when I acquired it. In India to say jewelry is a way of life is actually an understatement. It is a nation devoted to jewelry. Probably no piece has more meaning to an Indian woman than a bangle, which represents marriage, luck and lots of other things! It’s only fitting that one of the most impressive bangles I have ever seen comes from one of the greatest jewelers in all of India. Munnu’s rose and round-cut diamond bangle is pure magic.
Meredith Wendell Linked Weave Belt
I’d normally avoid fluorescents around my midsection, so as not to call attention, but this woven neon belt is worth the draw. I’d welcome a few second looks were Meredith Wendell’s cincher looped around my waist. Not that I’d even notice the glances, because I too wouldn’t be able to take my eyes off this hot pink design.
Dolce & Gabbana Platform Cake Shoes
We’ve always been told not to play with our food, but Dolce & Gabbana’s never been one to follow rules! For spring the label toyed with pepper prints, macaroni bracelets and now these confectionary heels. It’s a fitting inspiration, since great shoes complete an outfit much like dessert does a delicious meal. Were I to pair these sweet, ceramic delights with a minimalist cocktail dress, they’d be the icing on the cake.
Prada Pyramide Bag
As my fellow editors and I were selecting the Look of the Day a few weeks ago, something stopped us all in our tracks. January Jones was carrying the most stylish, ladylike tote—and we all wanted it! Last week when the bag arrived in our office for previewing, it did not disappoint. In fact, Prada’s colorblock bowler was all the more covetable up close. No wonder Ms. Jones’s look was such an easy choice!
Giorgio Armani Iridescent Pailette Clutch
I have one rule for my nails: no iridescents. I might have a change of heart now that Giorgio Armani’s sleek pailette clutch has entered my life. Suddenly those pearlescent swirls look gown-up and luxurious. With a polish so refined, I’m rethinking my manicure.
