Watch Out World.

If any of you has the pleasure of owning a luxury watch, you may sympathize with the loyalty that I possess with my very own stainless steel Rolex {a lovely gift from years past}. My wrist watch is approaching 10 years old and it’s one of the only luxury items I possess {not counting my slew of cherished handbags and jewelry, my health, my loved ones, my iPhone, and my satin PJs}. Albeit, I also have a deep appreciation for costume jewelry, in any material. Maybe luxurious in looks, but worthy in price, a few of this seasons fun and fashionable wrist watches are on my list of must-haves. What time is it and when did Michael Kors rock wind up the watch world?

Eco-Luxury on the Wrist.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And in the case of this wooden wrist watch at WeWood, it’s the most hypoallergenic and toxic free kind. I have a lovely Rolex that I received a decade ago from a family friend, and I adore it to bits. However, I think I could give it a couple of days off and flaunt my and inner green with this look-a-like 100% wood version. Is the Swiss tree a better buy? And in WeWood’s own words… this might be the sincerest form of sophisticated sustainability. Eco-luxury at it’s finest.

As Good as Gold! Let the Rush Begin!

Metallic isa mainstay in fashion and home design. Every season, editors exclaim “Silver is Sweet this Spring!”… “Bronze is Back for Good”… “Deck the Halls with Silver Balls!”. I say stop the press and stick with metallic for good! We all need something shiny in our life, and the smooth luster of decorative metal makes my mouth water. I have to declare that I am leaning towards the warmth of gold for my own personal interiors. It looks fantastic year round – up against linens, wools, chocolate, fuchsias, and rich indigo. I’m not afraid of a little eclectic either. I have polished nickel reading lamps, brushed silver drawer pulls, antique gold wall mirrors, and a gilded bar cart. However, the autumnal season is upon us and surely, editors will be shouting “Gold is Hot this Fall. Again!”. So be it. And embrace it. Wear it, and turn it on.
