Ann Chen

Love the juxtaposition of clean and modern with tattered in this collection by Ann Chen. Ann's collection of organic tops was influenced by Bruce Lee's quote "Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow. Be like water." Each piece is moldable and can be worn many ways... 'it can look however you covet'. You can purchase at Stars.


New items in the sample sale!

Great pieces and prices on Zeto Clothing in the sample sale!!
As usual stock is limited, some items are one-of!


Snoozer Loser

Love this NY based clothing line, Snoozer Loser. Designer Sonia Tay creates gorgeous, flirty pieces with whimsical prints that are too sweet to pass up. Another plus??? They are really affordable! You'll want to buy everything from her Etsy shop but if you're on a tight budget snag a printed bandana for $18 or a limited edition tee for $30.


La Vita Lola- Etsy Find

Am I glad I hopped onto Etsy this morning! These custom clutches from LaVitaLola are just gorgeous and priced from $40-$45 to boot. The fabric options range from classic to modern, making these so easy to customize to your tastes. Check it out here and email if you're a bride looking for great well-priced bridesmaid gifts.


Emily Elizabeth Jewelry




Adorably nostalic and simple pieces from Emily Elizabeth Jewelry. I used to eat crackers by the boxload when I was younger and yes that's what made me post this...but the prices can't be beat.Emily's pieces are made using brass, gold plate, and 14k gold fill to creat modern, feminine pieces. See her site here and get these items and more at Stars.


New in the sample sale....

I've just added some pieces from Lara Millers Spring 2008 eco collection to the shop...very limited and very gorgeous!!


Love this jewelry from designer Nina Dinoff of Swizzlet; each of the pieces are cast from vintage swizzle sticks and cocktail picks! Now this is updated nostalgia...check out her site here and a wider selection at her supermarket shop.

Stephanie Simek

I love these really unique pieces from artist Stephanie Simek. Stephanie takes advantage of small collection by making each piece a layered work in itself. My favorites are the Quail Egg necklace lined in 23k gold leaf, and the powder necklace (below) which is filled with silver-colored powder that sprinkles a light dusting on the wearers chest...it even has a mini funnel. Just darling! And by the way...most of Stephanie's pieces are very affordable...really!
