I found these statement pearl earrings designed by Lawrence Vrba at my favorite antique mall in New York City; Showplace Antique & Design Center. Multiple floors filled with furniture, decor, clothing, collectables and of course... jewelry. Vrba has recently become one of my favorite vintage and contemporary jewelry designers. After stumbling across a few of his pieces recently, I did some more research only to discover that (surprise, surprise) he used to design for one of my other favorite antique jewelry designers: Miriam Haskell. I found a few online sites where you can shop Vrba's jewelry here, here and here. And if you are ever in New York City, make sure to stop by Bergdorf Goodman... You can often spot his jewelry creations among their window displays!
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.
I spent last weekend exploring downtown Charleston in my new favorite gladiator sandals from Cecelia. The city stole my heart and I am already planning my next trip back! Now onto what’s most important; the food! I thought I would share a few of my favorite places to grab meals and sweets.
For homemade root beer floats, marshmallow fluff on top of ice cream and pimento cheese sandwiches.
For the best local and seasonal meal you will ever have, save room for dessert!
For deviled eggs and cocktails in a charming setting. This is also Cannon Green's sister restaurant.
For lemon curd, vanilla blueberry cupcakes and other delectable desserts!
I absolutely loved all the pastel colored buildings in Bermuda. Grotto Bay Resort, the first place we stayed, had a dreamsicle color pallet that was such a treat.
