There are jewels and then there are IT jewels. To celebrate 70 years in the business, Verdura has recreated the iconic Maltese cross cuffs designed by Fulco di Verdura for Coco Chanel. She was so enchanted by its surreal design; she wore them everywhere, one on each wrist, always with effortless elegance.
Only 70 bracelets were made. Each one is adorned with rubies, sapphires and emeralds, making it a true badge of honor. Dream a little dream.
A t-shirt is the ultimate in versatility and ease; consider it the building blocks of a casual wardrobe. It's lovely peeking out from under a chiffon blouse or just perfect on it's own. There are endless variety of cuts and color, but for me a no-frills basic tee is a must. I love one that is long and soft and this little number fits the bill. The deep v-neck and relaxed fit elevates this classic style to superstar status (James Perse $50). I can already tell it's going to be a staple in my spring style arsenal.
Twiggy's doe-eyed charm and leggy, androgynous look made her the ideal mannequin for the mod movement of the 60s. School girl dresses and straight shifts worn with tights and Mary Janes became the uniform for swinging London IT girls. My pick for Twiggy: "The Freida Dress" from ModCloth (of course)
Romancing rebellion? Look no further than a denim vest. A vest can carry you through all seasons; think of it as a cardigan. Fashion meets function in this cheap chic vest by American Eagle ($29.95). It’s versatile enough to look darling over a dress, or daring enough to layer over anything that needs a kick. I’ll take it!
Give your LBD a rest and make the switch to white. A little white dress is especially sweet with ruffles and lace. I am loving “The Odalisque Dress” from ModCloth ($78). Rock this frock with bare legs, gold heals and a wrist full of cuffs for a look that is fresh and sure to impress!
