Not sure what to make of…the Soaring Porcine Ring

I’m as much a fan of kitsch as the next person but the Soaring Porcine ring ($178) seems to take it to a whole new level. When pigs fly indeed. Not only is the ring huge (and heavy) but its jewel-encrusted look would put Swarovski to shame. Part of me thinks the ring is kind of cute and perhaps if…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Roxy on holiday

roxy on holiday by roxyturtle Unlike many I am a fan of the cold weather. Love snow and the holidays and the cold! But that doesn’t mean I can’t also dream of escaping somewhere warm where the water is clear and the breeze is the only movement for miles. Anthropologie recently unveiled their 2009 resort line and I love several…

Email: There’s a present for you

In their latest email Anthropologie invites us to check out the sale under the tree. I think their free shipping promotion must be working because their online sale section is looking a bit thin. A lot of items that they add to the sale section sells out quite quickly. I have put a couple of items on my wishlist only…

Vintage touch

With clothing trends playing heavily off the style of the 1930s and 40s this winter it’s no wonder that jewelry has followed suit. It’s been interesting to see Anthropologie’s take on the trends through their whimsical pieces. In particular I’ve noticed their necklaces have been taking on more stature lately.
