Collections

My husband is a bit of a hoarder — uh, I mean “collector.” It was one of those things I didn’t realize until we were married. When we moved from Nashville to Alexandria after being married for just 3 months I had to pack and unpack his junk — um, I mean “collections.” The collections include but are not limited to, ticket stubs, stadium tumblers, baseball cards, coins, stamps, sporting programs, state maps from rest stops (can’t make that one up) and anything related to the University of Tennessee.

 

The only things I find worth collecting are things I can wear.

 

This outfit reminded me of that because it represents one of my favorite collections, jackets, and one I am working on, jewelry by Steven Vaubel. 

 

Vaubel jewelry is all handmade in New York 18kt gold vermeil in green or yellow gold. Every piece is a statement and never goes out of style.

Recently my next door neighbor shop, Hysteria, started carrying SMYTHE, another one of my favorite lines. They are great investment pieces that never go out of style. I wear the ones from this year as much as the ones I bought 5 years ago (that doesn’t mean I don’t need updates, if you’re reading this, honey.)

 

Here are a few pieces they will be carrying this spring and I can’t wait to add to my collection.
