Day Twenty: Stacked

I am constantly stopped by people asking me where I got so stacked. Well the credit for my stack goes to two of my favorite sisters, Lisa and Carolyn. Owners and designers of the line of jewelry, Sisco Family Jewels. Their bracelets are meant to be mixed, matched and.... stacked, they look great piled on together and are a great gift idea because you not only custom create your group but can keep adding more.

Day Seventeen : I'm in Knots

I discovered this line of jewelry by Kara Ross at my favorite spot to shop for beautiful little baubles and trinkets, Good.
Everything in the collection is beautiful but I am particularly smitten with the knotted necklace and bracelets.

Day Eight: Hit the Books

What could be better than curling up with a good book on a cold winters night. Make it a book or magazine ( we recommend Vouge) about fashion and your night just got better. Here are a couple of our top picks for the fashion reader in your life.

Day Seven: Stuffed

I absolutely love the work of Tamar Mogendorff. I first discoverd Mogendorff , a handstitch artist out of NYC, at Louis Boston. She creates gorgeous creatures from a variety of vintage fabrics and treads. One or several of her pieces would make a beautiful gift for that special person on your list.

Locally Mogendorff's art can be found at Flock in the South End.

Day Three: An Urban Legend

One of my favorite NY jewelry and accessory designers is Lizzie Fortunato, from her inspirational lookbooks to her ultra cool mixed material pieces, she is a designer I just can't get enough of. Pieces from her collection are sold locally at a couple of my "go to" boutiques Looc and Stels. But, for those of you on a tight holiday budget I just discovered that Lizzie has done a collaboration with Urban Outfitters. This very limited edition bracelet makes a great stocking stuffer or babysitter gift and the price will allow you to buy one of her collection pieces for yourself.

Hope Marian by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels $28.00
