bohemian rhapsody

Summer is around the corner--the temps are heading towards the 70's--and the 70's are also making their way into my summertime closet.  Maxi dresses, wedge sandals, flare jeans, and peasant blouses are all such a lovely change from the grey Vince cashmere sweater I have been wrapped in constantly since last fall.
Recently I discovered a new jewelry designer while checking out the latest boho on Cusp, Neiman Marcus' sister website that is geared towards the more hipster crowd, and I am in love!
The Josefina de Alba jewelry designers are sisters Karina and Marcela Padilla, who have combined sterling silver and Kuichol Indian artistic beading to create stunning necklaces, earrings, bracelets and headbands.  I ordered the Beaded Fringe "Fabulous" Earrings and was dually impressed by the beauty of the colors--and how gracefully they moved with my long hair--lovely and free spirited simplicity.  Check out their website to view their entire collection.
A few other accessories that have a cool summer vibe, Juicy Couture's Kissing Birds Ring, a chunky ring with a sweetly unique design, (I think it would make a great gift for someone special), Serafina's Mini Feather Earrings, which are a gorgeous and funky, and finally, the stunning Nakamol Beaded Cuff, which will turn a simple outfit into a head turner.
Accessorizing with a bohemian piece is a great way to try out the trend of the moment without a wardrobe overhaul--whether it is feathers, beading, or a bit of fringe.  Peace, love and hippie chicks.
