Lorraine DePasque for INSTORE Magazine writes about the Y-Necklace trend that seems to be sweeping the fashion world:
“For quite some time now I’ve seen one article after another about the “Downton Abbey” effect on fashion. Yet, I haven’t seen anything pointing to the return of Y-necklaces. And, frankly, that surprises me. First, because Y-necks have been trickling back onto the jewelry scene and, second, because their very roots are believed by many to date back to the post-Edwardian era—yes, the time in which PBS’s popular British period drama series is set.
But “Downton Abbey” aside for a moment, the runways, too, are playing a role in the Y-necklace’s return. From New York to Paris, in their 2013 spring and fall collections, fashion’s big names focused on the V-neckline—inarguably a perfect backdrop for a Y-necklace. To imagine just how perfect, think of Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes in January. Wearing an 83-carat diamond necklace from Chopard, Ms. Poehler was one of the night’s showstoppers. And while the mega-watt diamond design was, technically, more Y-like, it forecasted the jewelry design direction. Well, to be more accurate, the jewelry design RE-direction . . . Read more

Wedding planning can be so stressful. Do you know what else can be stressful? Being a part of a bridal party! The job of a bridesmaid ceases to end. When it’s all said and done, a bridesmaid couldn’t be happier for their bride to be friend.
One of the perks of being invited to a wedding is of course the bachelorette party. Weekend trips to Vegas has become the most popular destination. Along with being budget conscious, the only other problem is figuring out what to bring! In this set, we picked out 2 pairs of shoes, 2 bags and 3 dresses to get you through a weekend away. Each piece was meant to seamlessly match one another so that you can build the perfect outfit. Don’t forget the accessories! We added our own touch with a pair of Miriam Jewels Sun earrings.
We were truly inspired by the up coming season – SPRING! These are a couple samples of new designs that will launch this year.
After experimenting with metal base wires last year, Miriam thought it would be a good idea to incorporate the combination of colored wires with copper, gold and silver. If you’ve visited Miriam Jewels at the La Jolla Open Aire Market, you might have seen some of the Telar and Classic crochet rings featuring a mix of gold and silver wire. They are extremely popular at Mixture and Hunt & Gather boutique in San Diego.

Yes, that’s a cat sweater. Better yet? That’s a cat sweater with an identical representation of my Bella Kitty Lala. I’m ridiculously obsessed with it–to the point that I ordered it from a boutique in Australia. Crazy? Maybe. But…this is Kitties + Couture, right? 😉
