Fortune Favors the Brave is a metal jewelry line inspired by rugged Western and Americana style. The collection incorporates modern touches to make the pieces, which include geometric rings and braided gold cuffs, wearable for today’s modern cool girl. Designers Shannon Davenport and Julia Wilson originally met in San Francisco, but they are now based in Brooklyn where they founded their collection. You can find Fortune Favors the Brave at select specialty boutiques and their e-commerce site,


Our latest must-have is this Gold & Gray Knotted Gray Wood, Tahitian Pearl & Tassel necklace ($340 at It’s the perfect accompaniment to fall’s chunky sweaters and we love how it’s so easily layered. 
Katie Bartels started off like many designers: creating pieces for herself. But her jewelry collection quickly became so popular that she was able to quit her corporate law firm jobs and commit her energy full time to the namesake line. Inspired by travels to exotic locales such as Greece, India, China and Iceland, Bartels’ collection of gemstone jewelry is vibrant and eye-catching (She is certified by the Gemological Institute of America, so you can expect top quality). Whether you need the perfect statement piece for a formal affair or are adding a touch of flair to your weekend jeans-and-tee wardrobe, this collection is our new go-to for cool styles that don’t break the bank.

The silk scarves are lightweight yet warm, and they fold down easily - making them ideal for the transitional weather of September and October.

Leopard print is the new must-do neutral, and if you need a bag for going anywhere this fall then an animal print clutch is it. We love the asymmetrical zip detail on this bag, which is a foldover clutch made from upcylced leopard print denim.
