Vienna is for lovers. Jewelry lovers, that is. Frey Wille is the best thing to come out of Austria sinceVienna Sausages (?! Ok, maybe he’s best thing to come out of Vienna period). His jewelry can truly be considered an art. On first glance, his colorful enamel creations look like Vera Bradley and Banana Republic teamed up for a new project. The fanciful patterns and bold styles are reminiscent of the mod designs of the 60’s, but also take on a vintage feel, especially with the Venise collection. You’ll fall in love instantly if your look is bohemian or preppy.
Investment Piece: Nude Pumps December 18, 2009
One of the best accessories I’ve bought this year was a pair of nude pumps (Banana Republic, left). My second choice was the Nine West Rocha, right. They go with EVERYTHING, and I actually mean it. That bright skirt you can’t match shoes to? Nude pumps. Tired of choosing between black and brown? Nude pumps. Transitioning from college sweatshirts to business casual? Nude pumps. The black printed flapper dress (don’t laugh) that I bought and didn’t look right with anything else? Nude pumps. They have revolutionized my wardrobe. Sophisticated and elegant, appropriate for work or a night out, jeans or a dress. They make your legs look a mile long. I promise you, you will find that these go with every piece of clothing in your closet.
