For my birthday, my sister really spoiled me... We went to my favorite design store, A+R on Abbott Kinney boulevard in Venice, and I got to choose a present. (Remember the plates and the barbed wire eco-plastic skin jewelery piece I also got there?)
I went for a sleek, modern wood and silver cuff designed by Tadd Sackville-West. It has hardly left my wrist since we left the store.
I received yet another treasure of an adornment, this time from my friend and aspiring designer J Elaine, who made this headband for me with a strip of old lace. She searches the flea markets of Paris for ancient fabrics and trinkets she then transforms. This lace headband totally dresses up any simple outfit.
