Pick of the Week: 27.06.11

Fortune Cookie by Steuben; Vivre.com, $150.00

I’d love to have these all over my place with my favorite quotes etched into them. They’re the perfect little personalized touch for a quote junkie like me.  The timeless Steuben Glass piece is utterly exquisite, the kind that come with my Hot & Sour soup has nothing on these.

Steuben – Crystal Piggy Bank;  $1,900, Vivre.com

I’m a fan of saving, so long as it doesn’t keep me from enjoying some good food, booze and miscellaneous shopping and entertainment activities. Perhaps when I’m making the kind of bank that I can drop $1,900 on a piggy bank I won’t be in need of a piggy bank as stately as this one. Perhaps I should stick to bank accounts and pink ones, but I can’t help but adore this one. It’s a beautiful sort of grown up keepsake that I’d probably fill with coins from different countries to add a little intrigue.

Coveted Deeply

Coveted Deeply[1] This looks like a jewelry box I’d keep on my vanity or chest of drawers but it’s actually a clutch purse from Poupee Couture. I love its duality, the black box on gold lattice work is utterly gorgeous. I spied something like this in the BCBG Max Azria Fall Winter 2011 show, but this one I can have now if my heart desires.

[2] This is called a tortoise decanter, for the true wine connoisseur in me. It’s more than just that piece you pull out when company’s over, it’s the kind of piece you want to put on display because it’s so gorgeous. This Steuben creation is a work of art.

[3] I can picture Christina Hendricks wearing this Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Red Solid Sunday top on the set of Mad Men. It’s vintage sixties feel is timeless and I’d love to dress it up by mixing it with other decades and creating a modern perspective. I want to wear it as an open vest over a slouchy vintage tee, a pair of skinny jeans and canvas oxfords.

[4] The splashes of color on this Proenza Schouler mini make me all kinds of happy. I’m a color fanatic and the frilly texture paired with the green and blue decidedly non-girly colors makes it even more my cup of tea.

[5] This Rachel Roy ring is blue burnished metal enrobed by a snake, it’s ultra edgy, but what I find a little hilarious is the one red eye, one clear. The texture and dimensions of this ring make it a phenomenal covet worthy piece that I can’t get out of my head.
