So, I finally made the leap from buying quantity to focusing on quality. It was a long time coming, but this spring, I took it to the next level. I am limiting my purchases to some well thought out investment peices, unique items that will stand up over time and fill some gaping holes in my closet.
It started with the Marant Krisi boot, then this oh so cool Veronica Beard moto vest, and finally some Mother denim. I'm not embarassed to say they are all from one spot, Viola Lovely. This local store just gets it right.
Simple items, spiced up with some leopard, and topped off with this lovely wooden and sterling ring from Uncommon Goods.
I have been a fan of the retailer for quite some time (they feature the ceramics of my mother's lifelong pal!), so when they approached me to work together, I was happy to oblige. Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, they are one of my go to spots for unique designs and hand crafted items. When I am on the look out for an interesting and thoughtful gift, I usually check here (agate coasters for the mother in law were a recent purchase). The hard to shop for? Easy. The person who likes one of a kind items you won't see elsewhere, done and done.
Uncommon Goods provides a platform to up and coming designers and artists- with half of what they sell being made by hand. Including this crazy cool ring by Allison Woods, that features the name of my daughter in brail. Each ring starts with a block of wood and a spool of sterling wire, cut to your size, and inlaid with a chosen word or name. It's sleek and special without being obvious, a subtle and sweet reminder of my new baby girl. A one of a kind accessory perfectly in line with my new shopping mantra. Less is more with wonderful items like this.
