Safety Pin Earrings From Gillian Conroy

I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting the Gillian Conroy shop in New York yet.  I would love to visit NY and her shop.  I have had the pleasure of visiting her website.  I Love it!  It is very informative and charming.  I don’t own any of her jewelry yet!  These safety pin earrings are at the top of my list!  They are edgy and classic at the same time.  The classic part is that they are round at the bottom so they sit like a hoop.  The safety pin earring is sold as a single so if you want a pair buy 2.  Gillian offers her earrings in different metals too!  I have many more Gillian Conroy picks, more on those later!

If you live in NY, go to her shop!  If you cant make it there, please visit her website!

Bric’s Riccione Carry On Neiman Marcus

I very seldom travel.  Finances, Family obligations and fear of flying are deterrents.   I believe in being ready regardless of deterrents.   I always have my eyes open for sales on items I will need in the future.

Today, I purchased this gorgeous Bric’s Riccione 21″ carry on.  I purchased online @Neiman Marcus.   Neiman’s has good sales.  Don’t let the prices keep you from looking!  You never know what you will find at an outstanding price.  You can also find an item that will enhance an otherwise basic outfit.  An accessory that will satisfy a cost per wear ratio.

Dr. Martens Sandals and Favilla II Soft Buck

I did not know Dr. Martens made such cute sandals and slip on bucks!  I’m seriously thinking about buying the Romi Sandals!  They looks so comfortable and stylish.  The available colors are pink, red and black.  I want the pink pair!

I’m purchasing the Favilla II Soft Buck in black.  They also come in dark red and all grey.  Wish I could afford all 3 pairs!

The Piano Teacher

The Piano Teacher, not to be confused with The Piano, is one of my favorite films!    It is in French starring Isabelle Huppert, Benoit Magimel and Annie Girardot.  It is directed by Michael Haneke.  Isabelle Huppert and Benoit Magimel won best actors at the Cannes Film Festival 2001.

The movie is based on the book, La Pianiste by Elfriede Jelinek.  She won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2004.  It is one of my favorite books.

I really reccomend both the movie and the book.  My review in a very concise nutshell is that 2 people with issues hooked up.  It was not how she thought it would be and he didn’t think he was capable.  Not your average boy meets girl movie!  Of course there is a lot more to the movie and the book than that!

I liked the music so much I bought the soundtrack.

Laurence Coste Earrings

My sister recently went to London, England.  She knows I Love Tatler magazine .  She brought me a copy of the July 2017 issue.

The July issue of Tatler featured earrings by Laurence Coste.  I am always interested in all jewelry designers, foreign and domestic.  So yes, I looked up Laurence Coste!

She is a Parisian jewelry designer that according to Tatler Magazine, is really big with Chelsea Girls.  Pictured are my picks.  The earrings are available for pierced and non pierced ears.

Pan Am Bags

Today I had the pleasure of going to Barnes&Noble.  I love B&N!  There are so few bookstores now.  I like to purchase European fashion magazines.

The Pan Am Innovator Bag

I saw a woman at B&N with a Pan Am handbag.  I fell in Love with the bag.  I have a soft spot for flight bags.  The woman said that her husband purchased it online.  Pictured here is my choice, the Pan Am Innovator Bag.  Available for purchase at .

Eileen Fisher Sneaker Sandals

Eileen Fisher Sneaker Sandals purchased online at Neiman Marcus.

My Sisters came to visit this weekend.  My 2nd sister was wearing gorgeous Eileen Fisher Sneaker Sandals.  I fell in LOVE!  Her sandals are taupe and suede, just so comfortable looking.  She doesn’t know it yet, but I bought a pair too!  Mine are pewter colored leather from Neiman’s.  I can’t wait to wear them!

Earrings Under 4 grams

I purchased these earrings at different times.   All purchased at Barney’s.   They all weigh under 4 grams!  I can wear them comfortably all day long!  They take me from day to night.
