After shoes, my jewelry is one of the first things to come off when I get home. To help corral the clutter I’ve scattered some vintage dishes (I can never resist a one-off in a pretty pattern) in strategic spots around the house. Yes, sometimes a pair of earrings still ends up on the arm of the sofa but overall it’s been a helpful way to keep things somewhat neat and accounted for. Having my favorite pieces out in plain sight is actually really helpful too.
The most recent addition to my little collection is the turquoise lusterware dish I picked up at a local antique store. A cheap thrill that reminds me of some of my favorite Waylande Gregory pieces. Filled with my beautiful ASHA by ADM jewelry it’s even more lovely.
Just curious, how do you store your jewelry?

Pom poms are back! Ever since spotting this Maira Kalman quote among the new arrivals at Furbish I’ve been noticing pom poms everywhere. Definitely not a complaint because I happen to think they’re pretty great in their own playful way.
I’d love to see these pillows in a children’s room and think this necklace is gorgeous if you’re willing to go bold. If you prefer your poms a little more subtle visit Albertina’s etsy shop for adorable pom pom pouches or check out this Serena & Lilly throw.
Love them or hate them, you have to admit everything looks a little more festive when pom poms are involved!
Did you know today is National Jewelry Day? I had no idea there was such a thing but am more than happy to go along with it! Especially since it provides me with the perfect opportunity to introduce you to a new-to-me jewelry collection that I’m absolutely obsessed with.
As much I love statement/costume jewelry, I also hope to collect a few heirloom quality pieces over my lifetime. Pieces my future granddaughter will wear and treasure and be able to tell admirers it belonged to her grandmother back in 2013 (so weird to think about, right?) Those are exactly the type of pieces you’ll find from New York based jewelry designer Blair Husain.
I’m especially enamored with her custom made roman numeral cuffs. I’m not sure which anniversary gold is gifted, but whenever I get there I’m asking for one of these! More realistically, I think it would be equally romantic to have one made with our wedding date (obviously planning ahead since I’m not even engaged yet!) since I probably won’t be able to wait that long.
Which date would you choose?

I’ve said it before, and I’ll undoubtedly say it again, but I love a good piece of statement jewelry. I was introduced to Hyla DeWitt Jewelry via Rachel and have since been debating the merits of the emerald fleur studs vs the pearl fleur studs. Deep thoughts for a Friday, I know.
To be honest, I really don’t think I could go wrong either way. The simple classic design all but guarantees that I’d reach for either frequently. For something not quite as everyday, I’m also pretty taken with her Egyptian tassel necklaces. Wouldn’t they be amazing with a simple white button down and black skinnies? I think so!

Discovering Property of a Lady’s online vintage jewelry selection was one of those moments where I felt like I couldn’t click through everything fast enough, and each new page brought something better than the last. Their selection is truly unreal. The kind of pieces I imagine a Palm Beach socialite wearing in the 6os and 70s. I’ll be browsing often and hopefully someday picking out a special piece of my own.
Do you have a favorite? I honestly can’t choose!
P.S I hope you’ll visit me at La Dolce Vita today for my first post as a contributor!
