Attention shoppers! Bloomingdale’s opened its lavish doors in San Francisco at 5th and Market. That’s right: the beloved East Coast institution is going tête-à–tête with Nordstrom and Union Square. Bloomie’s by the Bay, the second largest in the chain’s history, serves up a juicy slice of the Big Apple (unlike existing California branches). We’re counting the days until Barney’s New York makes its equally thrilling debut next fall at the corner of Stockton and O’Farrell in the building formerly occupied by FAO Schwarz.
Cap off your tough luxe look with a pair of these crystal Flaming Heart earrings by cult-classic Exhibitionist NYC. Pink lends an ultra feminine touch while the rest of the design warrants a rebel yell. Pair them with an all noir ensemble and thigh high leather boots.
There is but one way to hold onto a watermelon’s refreshing summer flavor year-round. Art Dep’s aptly named watermelon necklace features 150 balls that have been hand-painted to look like the big ol’ juicy fruit. Bear in mind that this is an original design. The online bidding for this item closes Nov 15th.
So what if The Art of Shaving happens to be created for men? Females are flocking from hither and yon to stock up on decadent creams and handcrafted razors by this New York-based luxury line. We love this gold stunner, which does wonders for sensitive skin on the legs and underarms.
What to bauble this season (that’s right, English majors, we consider “bauble” a verb)? Zola Simone Tourmaline Drop Earrings. We’re swooning for the Danville, California designer’s juicy green faceted drops on 14kt rolled gold.
The fairytales that have the tightest hold on little girls involve glass slippers and ruby sparklers. The moral of these stories? Shoes are the must-have accessories that assure happy endings. No wonder we’re lusting after this pair of Italian boots by Luciano Padovan. The noir stunners add the finishing touch to a sexy fall ensemble.
Listen up, lovelies. If you want to indulge your inner flirt, opt for an ultra feminine camisole and underwear set, or peruse the other oh-so-adorable underpinnings by Hanky Panky. The line makes frilly things to make your lover blush.
Since launching her jewelry business in 1998, Maya Brenner has become an internationally recognized name. A true blue California girl, she has always loved stones and beads. We’re loving this filigree medallion necklace made from gold. It’s sure to attract envious stares from strangers.
Well what do we have here? It looks like Sophie Albou has translated her stylish edge into a stunning line for Target’s Go International program, which ends Oct 30. This Twist Front Dress for Paul & Joe captures her pretty Parisian spirit with ease.
Some gals wear crosses around their necks, while others prefer a stunning pair of angel wings. Exhibitionist NYC’s wing with stone design looks fab by itself, but reaches new echelons of chic when layered with other necklaces. It’s also available sans the stone.
