Reflections

 
AELLA Plaid blazer (coming soon!), Vintage lace tank, Hovey Lee Eco Jewelry Necklace, Chan Luu Bracelet, Tiffany Kunz Basal Ring, Lou Lou Boutique Ring

This past year has been full of surprises to say the least, the biggest one being moving across the country to Boston. And although I miss my life in Los Angeles, I look forward to all the new opportunities that come with being in a new city (and visits back to sunny SoCal often!). Thank you guys for all the support with this blog, a hobby that takes as much time as a full time job but is 100X more fun and satisfying.

Pink Haze

Zara Faux Fur Coat, Velvet Kerry Challis w/Lace Popover Blouse, Goldsign Jeans, Hearts Turquoise Necklace (made from upcycled vintage stones and recycled brass), Clara Beau Earrings

Now that the temperature has dropped down to the 30's, there's been a permanent layer of fur around me. Thankfully, Zara has some stylish faux options that I'm loving like this pink one here. With Thanksgiving in three days (yay!) and the holidays right after that, I've been on the search for gifts for my friends and family. This year, I plan on getting everyone on my list sustainable gifts. Some great shops like AccompanyHearts (where my turquoise necklace is from) and LA's Reformation make the search easy.

Designer Dialogue: Sheer Addiction Jewelry


I first connected with Tamara and learned about her gorgeous jewelry line, Sheer Addiction Jewelry, over a year ago and I'm so excited to finally get the chance to share her story. A mix of vintage and modern, every item in Tamara's line looks like it came from hours of scouring through a centuries-old European flea market for the perfect find. Luckily, you don't have to travel far to score these treasures, visit www.sheeraddictionjewerly.com and meet the designer below!


What's the story behind Sheer Addiction Jewelry?
I lived in Switzerland for 10 years where the combination of rustic elegance and architecture had a huge impact on my style. On my 40th birthday I headed to Paris where I happened upon a vendor who used gilded architectural pieces to repair mirrors from the 1800's. I had an instant vision of the brand I wanted to create. A collection of luxe jewelry with a mix of vintage brasses and modern design. 

Favorite item from your current collection?
 My current go-to piece is the Beaded Luxe Set. I travel a ton and this set looks different depending on how I mix it and never fails to brighten any gray or navy outfit. 

Who is the Sheer Addiction girl?
 The Sheer Addiction girl is adventurous, focused on those she loves and a bit fearless in chasing her dreams. 

You're based in the Twin Cities! What are your go-to spots?
 I LOVE the Twin Cities and the change of seasons. For winter I cross country and ski every chance I get (I'm still a Swiss girl at heart), Spring and Summer are perfect for dining at Solera on the rooftop while taking in an outdoor movie, come fall the banks of the St. Croix river are loaded with fall colors.
