Artist Habitats

I’ve always been obsessed with The Selby since they launched in 2008.  Today, I was going through their photo archives, just couldn’t help to post a few images.  Take a look inside the personal space of some of the most creative artists around the world from Karl Lagerfeld’s impressive library, to Jeane Lanvin’s personal legacy, to Pharrell Williams’ collection of anime art, to Alexander Wang’s cool and edgy studio….  Where they live/work tells a lot about their style, personality, and inspirations.

All About Layering

From street style to editorial, it’s all about layering when it comes to how to wear jewelry.  Mixing colors, metals, materials, shapes, and sizes…there are no rules.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day

We love traditions and holidays, especially one that calls for green beer, green clothes, and green anything!

Here are our picks of something green for St. Paddy’s Day!  Doesn’t the little 1950s green brooch on our Raina necklace looks like a clover leaf?

Raina necklace – $250

Recent LA Trip – Art, Food and Great Friends

I was in LA last week with my girlfriend, Kim visiting friends.  Always loved LA, but we found some really cool places and inspiring artists on this trip.  And of course it’s not a good trip without good food and company.

A cool pub in the art district – all they serve are beer and hot dogs – yum!

 

We were driving around downtown LA and found a long dark tunnel that leads to the LA river under a bridge.

VIET Noodle Bar in Atwater Village is all about less is more – stylish, minimalistic decor and great food with simple clean flavor.

 

Funny posters on the street.

 

Went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena on Sunday briefly.  Didn’t find too many jewelry because we went too late, but did see a spooky bride in the middle of the market.  lol

Love this lounge set…wish I could take it on the plane.

 

We went to the “REVOLUTIONS” show by Shepard Fairey in Santa Monica featuring a set of 36 art album covers.  photo: Brandon Shigeta

Had one of the best Japanese izakaya before we went to the airport – simply delicious.

Orange – Happy Chic

“Orange is the Happiest Colour.” – Frank Sinatra.  We couldn’t agree more!  Not only it’s the happiest color, it’s also so very chic!  Go head to toe in bright hues or add a bunch of color with accessories, like our Sibylle necklace.

Sibylle necklace (in picture above) – $160
