“Pompon” SUPERGA x HOUSE OF HOLLAND. #colette #colettestore #superga #houseofholland
Great designers often draw inspiration from their cultural heritage, and none so consistently and vibrantly as Dolce & Gabbana. Season after season, their collections paint a colorful portrait of Italian culture, history and lifestyle, and the Sicilian-inspired looks of Spring/Summer 2013 are definitely no exception. Prints that recall street theater puppets and Italian plate motifs mix with beachy stripes to tell a chic seaside story…but as you might predict, our crafty eye was firmly focused on the adorably ornate raffia earrings that accented each look. Bring la dolce vita to your jewelry box with this DIY version we whipped up with Who What Wear!To create: Use pliers to attach three jump rings to the bottom of each filigree earring, or create your own earring using a filigree finding and earring wire. Next, string an assortment of raffia pieces (approximately 4” to 6” long) through each jump ring. Create a tassel by folding each raffia bunch in half at the center; then wrap and knot another piece of raffia around the head of each bundle. String rose quartz, lapis, wooden beads and pom poms onto a piece of wire and loop through the filigree to embellish. Secure embellishment by knotting leftover wire to the backside of the filigree.Get down with DIY and a dope playlistCurated by The Jane Doze
Historically, lobes have gotten all the love where earrings are concerned. But lately, there’s a new trend in town: ear cuffs that cover a greater surface area of your ear. Sometimes they’re bigger statement pieces and other times they’re more delicate. Either way, they blend a little bit of punk…

Dear fashion, lately we’ve been noticing a special glow about you, and P.S.- we love it. From iridescent Dior frocks to Burberry’s shimmering trench coats, Spring style is getting its gleam on. Slip into your own shine with this sneaky DIY that cranks up the wattage on a simple pair of kicks.To create: Cover the rubber rim and tag of the sneaker with paper tape. Next, use a foam brush to coat the shoe with a thin layer of acrylic paint (choose a paint color that compliments the iridescent film, as it will show through). Use scissors to cut 1” squares of the iridescent film, then crinkle each square. Spread mod podge on each piece of film and begin to layer onto surface of sneaker. Continue until the entire surface is covered in iridescent film. Finish and seal with another coat of mod podge, then trim any edges hanging over. Let dry completely before wearing.Get down with DIY and a dope playlistCurated by The Jane Doze
The latest arrival of this Lulu Frost brass and turquoise pendant has sparked quite the conversation here at Charm & Chain. Some of us think it looks like it came straight from a grandmother’s jewelry box, and others see a touch of the exotic in its S-shaped beaded design.
Whichever side of the debate you rest on, layer it, love it, and write your own story with it.
