After moving into our new San Francisco apartment, I finally had the opportunity (and the space!) to display a few of my favorite collected jewels and accessories. After tucking everything away for so many years in my tiny Manhattan studio, it is so nice to have a space where I can be reminded of my fondest vintage shopping memories. I found these Pottery Barn Antique Gold Jewelry Boxes to keep my jewelry and sunglasses where I would still be able to see them while keeping everything dust free. Next up on my SF home tour will be my dresser!
I celebrated my "late" twenties this year with an officially-all-grown-up gift: the classic Hermès Heure H Watch. I have coveted the timepiece for a few years now, always keeping my eye out while shopping at vintage boutiques. My last name starts with an 'H' so I thought it could be special, more like a monogramed accessory rather than a branded one. Unfortunately, I was never lucky enough to come across a vintage Hermès watch in near perfect condition... Knowing about my endless hunt, my parents decided to surprise me and splurge on a brand new Hermès Heure H for my special day. I could not have been more thrilled!
Too good to be just a coat...
By far one of my favorite spots in all of Manhattan is the quaint cobblestone block called the Washington Mews. Just above Washington Square Park is a little street that can transport you back in time, it is such a peaceful place... isolated from all the storefronts, bars and fast food chains, my little escape from reality.
