What We’re Loving!

Joti – This Butter by Nadia dress: I can’t even say enough about how much I adore it. I mean… one million ways to wear it… super comfy yet uber sexy… who wouldn’t want one of their very own? And it is STRIPED. There is no better deal out there ($219). I can’t wait to wear mine this weekend at my friends wedding in Charleston.

Letitia – Level 99 Robin jeans in Saffron ($106).  It’s official:  I’m a Level 99 jeans junkie.  I got a cute pair of high waisted trousers about a month ago that I’ve been wearing constantly and now I’ve added this amazing pair of Saffron Robin jeans to my collection.  I love yellow (just not near my face), and since I’ve given up black, I’ve been really enjoying dressing in bold color combos.  Count on seeing me in these a lot… and they look so cute with my coral Frye flats.

Angi –  From the very moment that Amber Mahler (Mani Designs Jewelry) started collecting little buds and twigs in the woods and casting them in silver and gold, I have been in LOVE.  She uses the lost wax casting technique which creates a one of a kind piece and then gently saughters and hammers them to their delicate “stems” to make them into the most naturally beautiful jewelry there  is.  I actually own many pairs, but the latest shipment has delicate smaller studs that are more affordable ($110) than the 14K gold poppy buds that people literally stop me at every corner to admire.  No one else will be wearing the same earrings as you, these are precious and worth every penny!!


Amber’s work is also under the “lines we carry” section of this blog.  Go check out the website and try not to drool on your keyboard.
