Adornment :: Collared

terrablack :: Adornment: Embellished Collars

Spikes and studs, laser-cut leather, pearls and stones, all have been seen embellishing the collars of everything from blouses to dresses to jackets; and while I do enjoy a statement-collared jacket or blazer, alternatively—avoiding the permanency of an embellished collar on a favourite blouse—I prefer collared necklaces adorned with sequins, crystals and such as this gives me the option to where as often as I like and with any other piece in my wardrobe.

TBL :: Cartier's Juste un Clou Collection

Cartier's Juste un Clou Collection

An instant classic when it was originally designed in the early 70s by Aldo Cipullo (he also designed the iconic Love bracelet), Cartier's Juste un Clou collection—'Just a Nail'—has been reengineered: the way it opens, the thickness of the gold, the security, the articulation have all become more solid while effortlessly mainting it's status as a forever sought after classic.

Adornment :: Retro Modern

While at the office, in addition to following proper dress code—showcasing your personal style is an absolute must—you also need the proper "office supplies" to increase productivity, and, according to Marie Claire, those include delicate watches, typewriter-case framed purses, and cocktail rings the size of paperweights. And yes, I completely agree.

Style :: Business Class

Netbooks and laptops, smartphones, and tablets have extended our 9-5 workday to: OPEN 24/7, and have made themselves a daily necessity as those dinner dates right after work double as meetings for which there are documents to review, conference calls to join and the 99 emails still awaiting a reply—ASAP; during this non-stop handling of business we must remain calm, cool and chic as we tow our myriad devices, with an oversized clutch as the fashionably fitting and simple solution.

Currently Coveting . . .

<font size =6>I</font>'ve been looking for a new black bag and Marc Jacobs' quilted leather 'Viva' crossbody has caught my attention, though instead I may just splurge on the quilted iPad case as I plan to gift myself one [an iPad] for my birthday. Yes, the quilted supple lambskin leather would be a perfectly safe and chic home for my tablet.

Recently I hinted at my obsession with Wonder Woman and my excitement for M·A·C's collection in her honor. Well, nOir Jewelry has just upped that excitement tenfold with their DC Comics Collection which features pieces in honor of not only Wonder Woman, but Cat Woman, Bat Girl and Super Girl—talk about girl power! I love it all and can imagine that rocking any of these pieces will make me feel like the City is mine to do as I please.

{Retrosuperfuture 'W' Sunglasses}

Forget about cat eyes and butterfly wings, I'm going grown and sexy with trapezoids. Simply and elegantly labeled 'W', this collection of sun shades from Retrosuperfuture is a throw-back to the 70's Italian style that I always find inspiration in with a nod to the future. The sleek simplicity in design make them über chic; there are six hues and I want a pair in every color.

Hat Trick

<font size=6>H</font>ats aren't usually on my radar. I can appreciate them on other people—Karen rocks hats frequently; and well—but I usually only think of them on bad hair days. Lately though I've been in the mood for a hat; even tried on a few while out shopping. Although I wasn't able to decide on one I absolutely loved, I'm still searching for that must-have topper. Here are few that I'm considering...

1. Magid Felt Bucket Leaf Hat, $54

2. Patricia Underwood Trilby Hat, $575

3. Rag & Bone Kingsley Wool Fedora, $160

4. Patricia Underwood Bowler Hat, $530

5. Eugenia Kim Max Toyo Fedora, $300

6. Arden B Two Tone Woven Fedora, $19.50

7. Del Moro Felt 'Borsalino' Hat w/Stitching Details, $338
