Family Jewels

(Wearing: 1940's family heirloom jewelry)

Whats better then fashion with a little history? I recently visited my family in Texas and they finally let me get my hands on some of my great aunts amazing jewelry and stage costumes from her early days as the wife of a Country Music Hall of Famer in the 1940's/50's. These pieces have been in the presence of all kinds of legends from Bob Dylan to Johnny Cash & June Carter. I gagged for the next-level opulence of some of the pieces. There is a velvet jumpsuit with mother of pearl encrusted cut outs that i've got my eye on...yes, I said mother of pearl. You will definitely be seeing some of my favorites incorporated in upcoming looks on the blog. It's the official first day of the SS14 collections and I just got back to the city, so i'm scrambling to get it together!

Off to a few presentations and pre-kick off events this evening.

Stay tuned for my personal coverage of my NYFW!
