Tangled Machine Necklace by Made Her Think

What’s problematic about falling love with this season’s statement necklace? Unfortunately, the semi-coy, strategic mixing of this piece into your daily wardrobe has a much shorter shelf-life then the accessories of seasons past .

When I discovered the Made Her Think line, I was overcome by curiosity, smitten with their distressed, rusted and well-worn industrial pieces. Since acquiring my well-loved longer version of this necklace, I have made it an inseparable, day-to-night  permanent staple.

As all you ladies know, getting ready for a night out usually entails a brief run-down of outfit possibilities with the usual coterie of gal pals. However, it is a fairly bad sign when your friends can stop you mid sentence, their ESP rendering you completely speechless, knowing your exact strategy for accessorization. This may make for an embarrassing moment now and again, but I will easily overlook a brief cheek flush for this must-have accessory. 

Lusting:

Sequin Dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim 

 Don’t you just love holiday parties? Whether your swinging back eggnog, while a Bridget Jones look-alike is treating you to an off-key rendition of christmas karaoke or you are enjoying a flute of bubbly with your closest friends, while counting down to your fresh start in 2010, it is essential adorn an absolute show stopper. Many opt for a LBD, but we all know that you can’t settle for blending in, so why not stand out in dazzling sequins from head to toe. With options from Alexander Wang, Ashish and this little number by Phillip Lim.

Attending the Sassy Chicks Fashion Bash

Yes, I concur. It may be a thoroughly questionably named event, but with the prospect of purchasing a few self-indulgent  pre-holiday gifts, I am willing to overlook it. With prices up to 80% off you need not worry about making it on to Santa’s naughty list. 
Enjoy  a complementary cocktail or two while browsing deals from Chanel, Prada, Dior, Gucci, Nanette Lepore, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg and  many more

Consider purchasing two VIP tickets for $20 which will ensure you get the fist dibs on the designer goods, avoiding the predatory fashionistas. If that isn’t enough to sway you, you will also be treated to a gift bag of goodies, complementary cocktails and complementary spa services.

Pamela Love Fall 2009

Doing away with their bow clad attire, the prim young ladies of seasons past have instead favored a wicked discord of leather studded boots, tousled groupie hair and bleached vintage rocker tees. This darkly intoxicating It Girl, has allowed her modesty to take a back seat, instead transforming last season’s muse into her ultra rebellious younger sister. This thirst for a rougher facade has become increasingly dependant on cultivating a stash of go-to accessories, mandating an assortment of studded cuffs, rocker boots, heavily tangled oxidized chains and harshly buckled platforms be found in every Fall wardrobe.

Love in Her Own Designs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was first introduced to jewelry designer and Rock guru Pamela Love while working on the Frank Tell Spring show during New York Fashion Week. For Tell’s collection an assortment of raven’s claws were sparsely styled against a backdrop of space-age sophistication. Copper clawed brooches and bracelets were paired with each look. Some modernized 80s references crept in, such as a barrage of one-shoulder dresses, which were styled with dark, yet deeply sexy bracelets by Love on opposing wrists. Stylist Natasha Royt, pushed the collection away from convention by harnessing the collection’s strong shouldered ensembles and adding a significant edge. Raven’s claws were placed just- so; each talon curling under, barley grazing the surface of the shoulder. These accessories channeled an allure and an ambience only reminiscent of Poe prose.

“I think fashion is definitely going through a very tough phase. The popularity of Alexander Wang and Rodarte really show that there’s a more gothic or rock and roll, more morbid sort of curiosity in fashion right now. I think that translates into jewelry as well.”

             -Pamela Love 

 

Since Love’s recent exposure in both W and Vogue, she has become a commercial success. This downtown designer has quickly become the go-to girl for industry shows, contributing her creations to the shows of Zac Posen, Frank Tell and Yigal Azrouël
