Brooches are an important accessory for the Fall and Winter. Since conventional jewelry (like bracelets and necklaces) are often concealed by long sleeves and high necks, a brooch can be the main adornment of any outfit. This one is feminine without being too ‘precious’ and stylish without being too stylized.

I LOVE LUCITE

I LOVE LUCITE

Lucite is often used as a light or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. I find it most useful as a wood alternative and space saver.

Wood is the ubiquitous material for furniture- tables, chairs, dressers, beds, consoles, wood dominates this particular market. But a room full of wood is boring, so I am always looking for and championing different materials. Lucite, mainly as tables and accessories, is an ideal, inexpensive and modern way to start peeking out from underneath a mountain of wood.

Its secondary attribute is a space saver. This material (like glass) carries no visual weight, so small spaces don’t have to be compromised. Here are some of my favorite examples of lucite in action-

Bangin’ Boots

These boots, from Cole Haan, are a nod to the equestrian look without looking like you just left the farm. Love the beautiful leather, love the zipper on the inner calf, love the price, love it all.
