Sometimes a simple piece of jewelry is all you need. For example: these stylish necklaces by Urban Aviary. Made with a variety of stones, they are classic yet add an element of glamour to your look.



A bucket bag is perfect for summer travel - as a cross body it’s not easy for pick pockets to grab, it’s easy to carry, and it keeps your hands free for snapping photos while sightseeing! This neon yellow leather style by Tel Aviv-based Etsy sellers Stella and Lori is on trend and the perfect size to carry all your daily essentials.

We’re all about fun pants this spring, so of course we’re dying for a pair of these:

The silk pleat pants are both playful and elegant, with a look that is luxe yet relaxed at the same time. Not feeling bold enough for polka dots? They also come in more subdued yet still chic shades of red and cream.

Taking a unique direction for Fall/Winter 2012, Houghton’s first collection consists of a light palette of ivories, blushes and whites - a refreshing change from the typical racks of black, grey, and navy. Designed by established NYC stylist and former Badgley Mischka Couture design assistant Katharine Polk, the new luxury line will include long tailored coats, menswear-inspired suits, and hand-beaded statement gowns with a bit of edge. We can’t wait to find these amazing silk cashmere and chiffon pieces in stores next fall.
