i left two things off of my spring shopping list, probably for two reasons: first, i’ve already bought them and secondly because they’ve become such a part of my daily wardrobe.
the first is the céline knot bracelet i picked up in february. i had long admired céline’s jewelry, but the stores in sf (neiman marcus, saks, and barneys) only carried one size in the bracelets. so when i was in new york, i popped in to check out the selection, and the thin knot was too beautiful to resist. even though it’s an open design, getting a small ensures that it won’t slip off my wrist (there’s enough of an opening to get it off and on).
my other purchase happened because of new york as well. i had lunch with sarah and she was raving about her mise en dior earrings. then the same day i went to céline, i stopped into the dior flagship and saw the pearl and colored versions. while i loved the design, i wasn’t crazy about the colors or the pearls, so i passed. but back in san francisco, after taking a peek into the dior shop within bloomingales, the salesperson casually mentioned the metal versions were soon coming in. oh, you don’t say? “i can give you a call when they arrive.” well why not? i went for the smaller silver/larger gold combo, which looked better against my skintone, and they’ve become my alternate to the diamond stud—still tasteful but a little more interesting.
