Amazing Jewelry Alert:

While I haven’t yet shared a ton about my book with you- I can tell you this: it’s full of all of my favorite things. Artwork- check. Shoes- check. Birds- check. While researching for this style book I came across thousands of amazing designers and I’d love to share some of my favorites with you on this blog.

Derya Aksoy is the designer of Jewelera. Years ago, I saw one of her necklaces on a friend’s blog and saved her site because her winged creations are so whimsical and delicate that I just find them inspiring. She takes inspiration from, well you can see–butterflies. These pieces are so unique, and so interesting. Pair it with a simple v neck and ripped jeans. It’s the perfect addition, and completely transforms any look with this fun feminine style. I have this necklace here in office and I can’t decide whether I want to wear it or frame it. I think it would be beautiful framed in my bedroom or handing from a masculine iron hook on a plain wall. If you are getting married just imagine how much fun this would be around one of your bridesmaid’s collars?! Or for NYFW paired with an amazing mixed print and a sweet shoe.

Because I like them so much, I’ve asked Derya if we could give one of my super stylish readers a pair of her earrings! They are the pair I’ve pulled to shoot for my book, so they are 100% DS approved. And- oh why not- I’ll send you this sweet little illustration too (of a pair of shoes I’ve been drooling over by Charlotte Olympia (link) psst: It’s an original mini illy, not a print.



To enter, follow @jewelradesigns and @dallasshaw and leave a comment on the DS insta post telling me how you’d wear them. You have until July 8th to enter! Good luck friends. x
