Shopping in Style During Spring in Shoreditch

According the Middlesex County Justices, Shoreditch in the East End of London was once a haven for “dissolute, loose, and insolent people” or, as they are otherwise known, actors. Because Shoreditch was outside the jusrisdiction of the City of London’s puritanical leaders, it was an ideal location for plays like Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet to […]

Wedding Band 101: Make Your Own Tradition

If there is one constant in the rich tradition and styles of wedding bands throughout the course of history, it is that they have constantly changed. From the earliest rings made by the ancient Egyptians of rushes and reeds, twisted into circles to symbolize eternity, to the iron betrothal rings of the ancient Romans, to […]

Drop the Needle on Classic Love Songs

Love songs get a bad rap. Even some of the most offensively saccharine elevator tunes got their start as intricately crafted testaments to that most prolific of all muses, amour. Our favorite love songs are those that reflect the adversity real romance must endure, ultimately making the fulfillment even sweeter. And even though the official […]

Engagement Ring of the Week: Bold in Life & Love

As curators of exquisite estate, antique, and fine jewels spanning more than three centuries, it should be no secret that we have a soft spot for the carefully patinaed wedding looks which monopolized Pinspiration boards throughout 2012. After all, who doesn’t love a gathering of vintage mercury glass vases and votives clustered around a stack of […]

Style Forecast: Rock & Roll is Here to Stay

Punk’s “incendiary influence on fashion” – as described by Andrew Bolton, Curator of The Costume Institute – has never been more at the forefront of the couture conversations than on the runways of the Spring 2013 collections. And “although punk’s democracy stands in opposition to fashion’s autocracy” says Bolton, “it’s youthful and aggressive forcefulness,” has […]
