FEATURED STYLE:

Henri Bendel Locked Up Bangle

Pair with all black and (if you're feeling primed for a 'faux-pas') mix liberally with silver jewelry. After all, metallics are neutrals and old-fashioned style rules could stand a little action.

Kate Spade Hang In There Glasses Pendant

We vote to keep summer going for as long as possible, and nothing furthers our case better than this bold glasses (or sunglasses) pendant. At 3.25" those little glasses will perk up your dreariest fall day with thoughts of lemonade, lounge chairs, hot days, and summer romances.

Henry Bendel Milliner Crossbody

Henry Bendel Autograph Tote

Henry Bendel Debutante Asymmetric Clutch

BCBG Leather Toggle Bracelet

Gemma Envelopment Ring

Henry Bendel Stone Cluster Bracelet

We like the tough leather band that balances this hippie style, and the adjustable strap that ensures a fit for our small wrists.

Kate Spade Charm Slingback

Pour La Victoire May Sandal

OUR SELECTIONS

WE LOVE...

gold, silver, patent leather, serious hardware. We love a carry-all surpassed only by the volume of our sedan trunk, a slim clutch for minimalist measure, and a shock of metallic to move us stylishly through the workday. We like a polished and practical flat for vacations, but love heels, platforms, glamour, and glitter. Rocker, CEO, or both, stand loud, proud, and wear it like you mean it.
