I just received my latest Etsy purchase – feather earrings from the shop of Baronyka – and I love them!  They are black acrylic, very light but substantial and less than $20.  The owner of Baronyka is Rony of Israel and according to her profile she’s inspired by “art deco, tattoos, Victorian era, and Art Nouveau and Combining vintage chic with modern techniques and materials.”

What I adore about these earrings is that you can easily dress them down (in skinny jeans, T-shirt and flats) or up (with a fitted mini, a slinky tank and bold heels).  There have been so many times when I think to myself, “I need a pair of black earrings that are more fun than hoops but not too dressy.”  These are perfect.

I also adore the Victorian lace earrings, Moonlight Lady lace necklace and Marilyn Monroe necklace.

The Charming Miss Watson

Fans of the Harry Potter series have watched Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger in the films, grow from a spunky 10-year-old to a young woman of style and grace.  At 21 years old she has demonstrated her preference for Marchessa minis, ornate details and earth friendly fashions.   She will be seen next in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ and 'My Week With Marilyn,’ which means, lucky for us, we get to see what she wears to many more red carpet appearances.  Take a look at several of my favorite style moments from Miss Watson.
