Smythson Jewelry Cases

Gorgeous jewels deserve an equally gorgeous home. Enter Smythson with its exquisite jewelry cases and boxes. Elegant and timeless, they are quite possibly one of the chicest accessories a woman can own. The cases come with lift-out trays and some with removable boxes, perfect for the jetsetter. Hey, if I were diamond ring, I'd want to snuggle in rich, buttery suede too.

{Extra, Extra!} Sculptural Jewelry

Meet my latest obsession, the sculptural ribbon cuff from Alexis Bittar. Come spring I'm wearing one with the season's stand-out print dresses. Sculpted jewelry is extremely versatile and adds substance to anything that needs a little extra weight. Read more at Boy Collective and share your favorites!

Ooh La Lanvin!

It's hard to find fault with anything that Alber Elbaz does. Season after season, he charms the hard-to-please fashion crowd. For resort, Lanvin teaches us a thing or two about a classy spring break...in Acapulco nonetheless. It's all about the juicy brights to get you into the vacay mood. Make like Alber's gals and layer playful pom pom necklaces and jeweled fruit charms over easygoing separates...or a class draped Lanvin frock.

Wowie Mawi

I have had my eye on Mawi jewelry for awhile now. The pieces of the London-based collection have a definite vintage feel but a contrasting, strong industrial vibe is also present. Check out the gorgeous necklaces that made a cameo on the fall 2010 runway at Vena Cava...instant chic-ifiers!

{Muse} January Jones

Everyone's going mad for January Jones, who plays television's most complicated housewife.

January bears a strong likeness to Grace Kelly, whom she channels in these pretty shots...

...but she can also play up the vixen side in her.

{Muse} Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard is French so it goes without saying that she's undeniably chic and has that je ne sais quoi that is unattainable for most. Sophistication is the name of her game. Whether she's donning old-school wayfarers for a photo shoot on the Cote D'Azur or her preferred Dior on the red carpet, Marion carries it all with poise and confidence.
