Oscars Best Dressed: Gwyneth Paltrow
Hands down the best dressed of the night was Gwyneth Paltrow who looked F-L-A-W-L-E-S-S in her Tom Ford gown (Love that cape! The cut and drape of the dress… Amazing!). Loved loved LOVED the simple and elegant styling from the hair and makeup to the Jimmy Choo shoes and how the cuff and ring by Anna Hu perfectly complimented the dress. When it’s so easy to pile on the glitz, I love...

Do It Yourself: Eyelet Collar →
Louis Vuitton under Marc Jacobs’ direction has been transformed into hands down one of the most fabulous fashion houses in the world, even though it’s not really known for apparel so much as its accessories. Alas I digress. We love this DIY project because it takes one of THE HOTTEST collections for Spring and makes it a little more (OK a LOT more, have you seen those price tags?!)...

A Crowd Jewel Valentine's Day
Our CEO, Courtney McColgan, is unstoppable—still full of energy at the end of the day! We had a blast at Women 2.0 yesterday meeting and speaking to all different women-founded startups and other entrepreneurs, VCs, and designers.

Grammys 2012: Best in Black
Color always photographs better than black when it comes to fashion and especially the red carpet, so it may just be me or perhaps the sudden death of Whitney Houston that made it seem as if this year’s Grammy Awards red carpet turned out an above-average number of black looks. From the stunning to the strange, check out the black beauties below. To the Fashion Police out there:...
What to Wear: T-shirt and Jeans
Sometimes keeping up with all the fashion trends can feel overwhelming, which is why the old t-shirt and jeans is such a classic standby. For those days when you just can’t be bothered to spend forever perfecting your outfit (I know I am particularly guilty of this!) but still want to look chic, statement necklaces help keep things looking fresh. Case in point, this @#JoomiLim crystal and...
[Fashion is] all about fetish. The definition is an unreasonable obsession with...– Yeah… we would agree! @#MarcJacobs @#MarcJacobsIntl @#LouisVuitton

Neons & Pastels Dominate at ENK Accessorie Circuit

About a year ago, Sebastien Martini, a John Galliano vet of 7 years, created the line Cadavres Exquis. The seemingly non-sequitur designs in the collection take inspiration from Dadaist, Fauvist, and primative art, which explains the mixed media, eclectic elements, and even the name itself, “Cadavres Exquis”. We like this faux wrap-around chain necklace from this up and coming line. ...
