Emerald City

Jewel tones are some of my favorite colors and Emerald has been everywhere.  It's a summer trend that is making a nice transition into the fall!

Emerald looks great with other Jewel Tones that are equally as saturated, such as fuchsia, navy, mustard, and violet.

Neutrals such as silver, black, or beiges let Emerald take center stage and enhance the color!

Fashion Week!

It's New York's Fashion Week and accessories are ruling the runway!  I especially love Dana Lorenz's  jewlery collection, "Midnight At Versailles," for Fenton.  Many designers displayed art deco style jewelry and fun whimsical pieces!
