Loving this great bib necklace from Amrita Singh, which strikes me as the perfect thing to wear with a wide v-neck or to dress up an otherwise simple outfit. It’s available in a faux white pearl (pictured), as well as a faux gray pearl, a dark blue lapis, and a black resin. All were $300 … Read More about Coffee Break – Faux Pearl Necklace

So I picked up my glasses yesterday and am really psyched about how they turned out. So first, a quick review of the last 3 pairs of glasses I got from LensCrafters (all purchased during the same “take 50% off lenses” sale sometime in 2007 or 2008):

I’m fairly new to the brand Reed Krakoff, having only heard about it a week or two ago, but everything I’ve seen looks professional, fashionable, and seriously lux.
