Flowers, eternally known for their romantic symbolism. Flowers are there, for us at least, to be enjoyed. To make our homes more welcoming, our gardens more lively. It’s the perfect gift when you visit someone at their homes.
It is still freezing outside, when we wake up early morning in this part of the world. It’s almost more cold now than during this past winter. But something has changed and it was a few weeks ago that I felt my heart almost make a little leap of joy. The first bird sang in the early evening hour. It was a black bird…and even if it was still too cold, I opened my doors to the garden and sat there, listening.
Red is such a flamboyant color. I adore red lipstick, but don’t own a red piece of garment. It looks terrible on me. But the lipstick…ah the lipstick is so bold. It puts you out there and you need to be a confident woman wearing it with ease. Red color in jewelry is just as sassy as the red lipstick is. It’s kind of loud and out there. But so very charming and intriguing at the same time. And for those of you who like to be on trend: it's a shade of red, Marsala, that is thé color of 2015!
Jacob & Co isn’t for the modest and shy! Although it is also true that many shy people like to express themselves through clothes and accessories that express something bigger. For all those who do not mind terms like big, * over the top*, there is an American brand called Jacob & Co that matches those descriptions perfectly.
Chanel is one of my favorite brands when it comes to really high end luxury fashion. No, I do not own anything (yet!) but it is always stylish. Full of elements that are always clearly Chanel and yet they know how to translate streetwear into haute couture!
Chanel is one of those names that almost everyone, if you are not living in a very remote place in the world somewhere, knows. It’s a fashion brand and a luxury brand. Coco Chanel was one of the first to make custom jewelry very popular. Today a piece of custom jewelry by Chanel will cost you a small fortune.
De Grisogono may not be as famous as Cartier to most of you, but it is very much worth taking a look at what beautiful jewelry this company produces. They don't follow trends, but were responsabile for the big trend in black diamonds that started some years ago.
