I'm a little tardy to the party on this one, but no matter. New York designer Roberta Freymann's bib necklaces are just the thing I need to spice up my drab winter wardrobe. Having traveled extensively throughout Thailand and India, her jewelry line is inspired by the colors and energy of these vibrant countries. The necklaces are reminiscent of a maharajah's jewels, with colorful sequins and chandelier drops. Unlike a maharajah's jewels, they are plastic and retail for about $250 (lucky for us!). I am picturing one of these gorgeous bibs with a little black dress and some tights for a holiday party. Tres chic, no?

My friend Danielle turned me onto this great online magazine called Lonny. It is reminiscent of Domino, but with a fresh online-only twist. I myself am a very tactile person and I love to actually turn the pages (and rip them out to tack on my wall) but I do love that you click on an item and it will go directly to the website where you can purchase it. The December issue just came out today, so click here to check it out!
I went and saw Tom Ford's directorial debut "A Single Man" yesterday and fell in love with the movie. Besides the incredibly powerful story line, moving scores and captivating cinematography, the Lautner-designed mid-century modern home of George Falconer (Colin Firth) is draw enough to see the movie. Here are some photos of the house....

How amazingly cute is this porcelain tea set? I love a black and white stripe. This set, "Melons and Mocha", is by Joseff Hoffman and is available through Neue Galerie. Considering a cup of afternoon tea today. It just sounds so civilized.
Raymond Meier shot a completely sick photo shoot with Taylor Swift for the New York Times Style Magazine. It has this glam-retro-valley of the dolls vibe that I am totally into. Get inspired!
Brit it-girl Alexa Chung has designed a line for Madewell that she debuted in February. I just saw the look book and thought I would share it with you all. I probably wouldn't wear any of these looks the way they have been styled here simply because I can't pull it off (ie tights with shorts or overalls), but I definitely have my eye on a couple individual pieces. I think it is a solid collection of closet staples with an updated edge. They will be available through the Madewell website in August. Perhaps more exciting is that Madewell will be launching their e-commerce site around the same time. Yay! What do you think of this collection?
