Etsy Spotlight: 13 Delicate & Cheeky Gold Necklaces

I'm not a huge style rule follower, but one thing I always adhere to is that if I'm wearing big earrings, I can also wear bracelets, but a necklace would be too much going on. I've been on a big chunky gold hoop kick lately, so I haven't been wearing many necklaces, but I'm planning…

Do Not Want: Barbie Boob Necklaces

If I work really hard, I can almost convince myself that these Barbie boob necklaces are funky and irreverent and cool, but then I remember they're made from disembodied doll parts, and get creeped out. If that wasn't bad enough, I can only imagine that adding a second pair of boobs to my chest area…

Must Haves: 10 Elegant Chain Necklaces

The other day, I listened to Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" on repeat for, like, seven hours. That song is so perfect. You know what other types of chains I enjoy? Necklaces!

Through The Looking Glass

Our love of J. Crew is outstandingly well-documented; we're crazy about everything the American brand offers, from perfectly cut outerwear and silk blouses to their trademark glossy patent leather pumps. They do trends just right, touching upon what's hot at the moment without giving their wares a seasonal expiration date… or an insane price tag.

My favorite craft projects involve taking a very ordinary material and transforming it into something totally unexpected.

I Guess We Could Call This “Construction Site Chic”

Artist Max Steiner creates these teeny tiny cinder blocks the old fashioned way: by pouring the cement and letting it set for one month. The end result?

Jewish Rosaries For Cool Jewelry Without The Sacrilege

Religious symbols are not usually my thing, but when it comes to denominational jewelry, I'm all in. I may have had a bat mitzvah, but I still love to drape myself in all manners of Jesus paraphernalia, particularly rosaries. Plastic rosaries. They're cheap, colorful, irreverent, and more than a little bit disrespectful, which is kind…
