Back to School

I will be attending a jewelry academy for a Spring and Summer semester this year! After working as a designer in the fashion industry for years, I have always wanted to learn more about the craft of making jewelry by hand so that I can fabricate my own designs. After moving to San Francisco this year, I finally had the chance to enroll at a school out here. My courses will focus on bench jeweler techniques like soldering, filing, casting, stone setting, polishing, repairs and diamond grading.

For my classes, there's a lot I have to carry back and forth... Pliers, files, safety goggles, a saw frame, drills... You get the picture! I've partnered with Radley for my go-to backpack. The Kennington Large Domed Backpack is sleek, modern and practical. I love the structured shape, perfect for carrying around my projects and other fragile tools!

Morning at the Met

I visited The Metropolitan Museum a few weeks ago to see the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology exhibit with my Mother while she was in town for a girl's weekend. We spent the rest of our afternoon wandering the sculpture halls at the Met. Afterwards, we walked over to Bergdorf's for dessert and tea.

Packing for Paris

I have been looking forward to my upcoming trip to Paris for months now, I am eager to start packing! France will always have a special place in my heart... it is where my parents got married and it is now the home of my best friend and former college roommate (who I have not seen in 2+ years!!). I am looking forward to sharing my favorite sights, sips and scenes with you, in the mean time you can follow along with my Instagram

How To Style A Louis Vuitton Noé Bucket Bag

Originally custom designed to carry bottles of champagne, the Louis Vuitton Noé has made its mark as an iconic "it" bag. The Noé is one of my favorite carry-alls... It is the perfect travel companion and like all Louis Vuitton products, it is built to last. To see how I styled the modern Louis Vuitton Black Epi Noé and the classic Louis Vuitton Monogrammed Noé visit my posts.
