Designer Spotlight: Verameat Makes Jewelry For The Faint And Not-So-Faint Of Heart

I live in New York City's East Village and one of my favorite local shops to stumble into while out walking my dog on a weekend afternoon is Verameat. If the name doesn't ring a bell, I still have a hunch you'll recognize designer Vera Balyura's work, especially her more iconic pieces,…

Designer Spotlight: Melanie Auld (On Sale!)

My name is Sophie Leon and I am addicted to online window shopping, which I guess is better than being addicted to just online shopping. I can’t help but open every "New Items!" email and click through every lookbook of the latest fashion porn. Every once i…

Must Haves: 10 Edgy Pairs Of Front-Back Earrings

Ever since Emma Watson showed up to the Golden Globes in January wearing Dior's asymmetrical double pearl earrings, I've been dying to find a similar pair of front-back earrings. Basically, front-back earrings are when the back of the earring -- what would normally be a boring post -- is actually a decorative part…

Etsy Spotlight: Starry, Starry Ears

The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol' things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces. A couple weeks ago, this little old lady came in. She was a classic southern lady, probably close to 90, decked out in Ferragamo heels,…

Golden Globes Style Stealer: Rashida Jones & Emma Watson’s Punky Pearl Earrings

I've always considered pearls to be in the same category as Wayne Newton, Werther's Originals and "I Love Lucy," i.e. "Things Grandmothers Love." But after last night's Golden Globe Awards, I have not been able to stop thinking about the pearl earrings Rashida Jones and Emma Watson wore. Rashida's earring is actually called an ear…

Holiday Party Style: 12 Pairs Of Super Sparkly Earrings

Whenever I find myself assembling a red carpet gallery for The Frisky, I'll gaze wistfully at some floor-length formal gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence or Kerry Washington and think, I suppose I'll never have an occasion to wear something so fancy. Like, I don't anticipate myself ever going to the Oscars or attending some black tie gala,…

Golden Globes Style Stealer: Major Statement Earrings

I always get so inspired by red carpet fashion, until I realize that my day to day life affords me very few opportunities to wear sequin fishtail gowns, and then I get sort of depressed. But luckily for us non-famous folks, there were a few trends from last night's Golden Globes ceremony that can easily…

Awesomely Affordable: 12 Pairs Of Dangly Earrings Under $30

True story, I've never had my ears pierced, and I know squat about buying earrings. I actually had to ask the rest of the Frisky girls if paying $30 for a pair of earrings was a deal. I guess I just feel like earrings would just be one more accessory to spend money on, so…

I recently bought myself a Rosette Nebula necklace from an Etsy artist, because my middle name is rose and I love space photography.

Calling All Crazy Cat Ladies

Don't bother asking me whether I'm a dog person or a cat person, because I have immeasurable affection for both species. (I also love, though strictly from afar, foxes, coyotes, wolves, lions, leopards, and essentially anything else you might find on your average safari.) But I'll confess: I cultivate a soft spot for felines that…

Are These Dolce And Gabbana Earrings Racist?

Update 9/27/12: Following the controversy over these earrings, Dolce & Gabbana has given an explanation: the jewelry is "a reference to Sicily's traditional Moorish-inspired artifacts."

Send My Love To These Itty Bitty Air Mail Earrings

If there are two things I love in this world, it's the mail system and vintage travel ephemera. If I had to choose a third thing to add to my love list, it would be miniaturized versions of things (coming in a distant fourth would be my boyfriend, tied with lasagna). So a…

Wendy Brandes’ Jewelry Reminds Us Of “Game Of Thrones”

We're obsessed with "Game Of Thrones." Obsessed! I just finished watching all of seasons one and two in, like, two weeks. And Amelia's now reading the books.
