Inspirations from Under the Sea

Since I was younger, I have had this obsession with everything under the sea. Ocean colors, shells, and mermaids. I had so many mermaid dolls, now that I think about it. Probably because The Little Mermaid was my favorite movie. This spring, is the perfect chance to incorporate those beautiful calm ocean colors into our wardrobes. I'm ready to leave behind my winter layers in exchange for something fresher. Here are some cool finds.

CHURONCALLA



This weekend was absolutely beautiful out, so that called for a perfect day at the High-Line. Every time I visit there, I stop by The Chelsea Market. The Artists & Fleas Spring Pop-Up shop was open, and there were several different stands filled with unique clothing, jewelry, and other accessories. But what really stood out to me was one stand with the most innovative jewelry, called Churoncalla. Each piece was hand-made. The friendly owner, Fredy, was inspired by pieces from everyday items. He used the letters of old typewriters to make monogrammed bracelets, earrings, and cufflinks. I love anything monogrammed, since it adds a touch of personalization. Other pieces were made of spoons, stones, and even license plates. It's amazing how creative the line was. Want to learn more about Churoncalla? Visit their website to order something special of your own at http://churoncalla.com/ or stop by Artists & Fleas on 15th & 10th!

Unique Antique.

Last weekend I went vintage shopping with my friends at the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market. Of course I'm attracted to the unique jewelry pieces and clothing, but the rare antiques always catch my eye. I love traveling back in time by discovering something straight from that decade. My favorite piece were these glamourous cat-eye glasses. They look like they're from the fifties. Here are some snapshots!
