Shop The Trend: Not Your Grandmother’s Pearls

Coco Chanel aside, pearls have always struck me as prissy and old lady-ish, the kind of jewelry you’d wear with a twin set while watching your boring husband play golf at the snotty country club. In other words, not me at all. Pearls (both faux and real) are having a major comeback, but thankfully these…

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…

Who Would Buy Kiki De Montparnasse’s $2,400 Pearl Restraints?

Seeing these Kiki de Montparnasse pearl bedroom restraints instantly reminded us of Samantha’s pearl thong in “Sex and the City”—cute, sure, but damn impractical. It would be great to sit in the privileged lap of luxury, but this item has us scratching our heads. For starters, $2,400 seems like quite a high price for something…

Pearls—What’s It To You?

According to The Moment (and a large handful of designer runway shows, included Mr. Marc Jacobs) pearls are B-A-C-K, back! Mostly, I find them sort of ho-hum/blah and way too prim and proper, especially when not jazzed up in some way (like Lanvin does with it’s gorge pearls-wrapped-in-black-lace necklaces).

The Best Things In Life To Fake

I am not a huge fan of “keeping it real.” Real often sucks. Where does real usually leave me? For starters: pale, too broke to afford jewelry I really want, mousy mop-topped and sleep deprived. I am not suggesting we all become cookie-cutter Barbies and I am all for embracing what nature gave us, yet…

Crave: Pearl & Ribbon Necklace

Pearls are timeless and ribbon is so girly. But for some reason, when you put the two together, they kind of a have a rock ‘n’ roll edge. This necklace from Wink would look amazing with a white wife beater tank, jeans, and heels. Kind of like Jackie O, gone bad. [$58, WinkNYC.com]…

Our girl Katy Perry made a guest appearance on soap opera The Young and the Restless last week. On the show, she was photographed for the cover of the new magazine Restless Style, and the cover will be unveiled on the show on June 27. But the magazine sort of exists even though it’s fictional!
