Derek Lam Fall Fashion Show at Neiman Marcus

Today I attended the Derek Lam fashion show at Neiman Marcus in the King of Prussia Mall.
The event benefited Cradles to Crayons, a charity that supplies children in need
with gently used items, including clothes, shoes, books, and toys.
There was a champagne reception followed by the fashion presentation,
commentated by Derek Lam, which showcased looks from the Fall 2012 collection.
These are a few of my favorite looks from the show.

This shearling coat looks so warm and cozy! And I love the crossover detail in the back.

Sequin cropped pants (!!!)

This was my favorite look. I love the combination of a chunky knit sweater with a long, flowy skirt... so dreamy!

And here I am with the very talented designer!

What I wore:

Vintage sweater and belt; Skirt from; Rebecca Minkoff bag.

With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes

I have been so addicted to interior decorating blogs lately.
I love bohemian vibes, rustic/country themes, and vintage French accents.
I am starting to decorate my apartment, so I thought I'd share a little,
starting with my ring displays.

This area is more gypsy-like than the rest of my apartment. It's so hard choosing
a single style to go with. I think my place is going to be a huge mix of styles
(just like my wardrobe!). But I'll pull it together one of these days!

Gold rings. I received this buffalo skull ring from Galibardy last year (worn in this post).
They have some great new and unique pieces, like these Aztec Earrings, Paper Plane necklace,
and the super cute Guitar Bangle.

I recently bought this vintage brass scale from eBay. I paid almost $20 for it,
which is a little more than I usually spend (Working at a thrift store has made me
such a cheapskate!), but I absolutely love it and I think it was completely worth it.

These are my three go-to rings. The combination of shapes and colors work well together,
so I just slip these on when I'm feeling too lazy to think of something new!

Silver rings. These are the silver rings that I wear most often.
They're a mix of new, thrifted, and vintage, mostly from Forever 21 and eBay.

Another fun thrift store find, this glass skull candle holder I use to hold the
rings I don't wear on a regular basis. I'm not sure what the brand is,
but I actually just found the same one in orange on eBay here.

A quick and simple DIY candle display: Cobalt blue glass bowl, $2 thrifted;
Freesia-scented pillar candle, $3 thrifted; 1/2 lb of small quartz crystal points, $15 eBay.

That's it! Hope this was somewhat entertaining!

P.S. I know this is a BAD way of storing jewelry, especially silver.
Silver shouldn't be stored in the open air or together with other jewelry.
But I like the way this looks and most of my jewelry is pretty inexpensive,
so I just don't care :)
