Fashion Flashback: Daisy Buchanan

We were feeling a bit stuffy in the shop today so we ventured to the garden of our favorite wine bar, Bottlehouse.  If you have never been to Bottlehouse in Madrona you must pop by.  They have the most wonderful selection of beverages and snacks.  Baguette with honey and creme fresh butter, please!  While gracefully sipping water (I know, but I had to go back to work!) I did my best to channel the fragile yet breathlessly beautiful “Daisy Buchanan”.  Step 1. Wear a large floppy hat.  Step 2. Pile on the pearls.  Of course, my “Daisy” had to have a little edge so I combined my pre-requisite pearls with this wonderful Xenia Mara hematite coated chain waterfall necklace.

Necklaces (top to bottom): 1) Pearl strand (personal). 2) Hematite covered chain and pyrite waterfall necklace by Xenia Mara. 3) Tiny seed pearl and pave diamond bead necklace by Hitchcock Madrona. 3) Ring Necklace by IOSSELLIANI (can’t really see this one).

Rings (right hand): 1) On my middle finger, I have my simple diamond eternity band. I am really enjoying this ring beacsue I can wear it on 4 out of ten fingers.  2) On my index finger I am loving my personal sterling silver signet ring.  Both designed by Hitchcock Madrona.  *More on the new signet ring to come!

(left hand): 1) On my index finger I am wearing a vintage sterling silver, enamel, ruby, and aquamarine ring procured in Paris by Hitchcock Madrona.  This was an amazing find in Paris!  I love the color combination – black (oxidized sterling silver), white (enamel), ruby and aquamarine.  Truly one-of-a-kind.  I am so lucky to have found a few great pieces for our collection in Paris (lucky because shopping with a 2 year old in a foreign city is impossible). 2) On my ring finger I am wearing some faux gold bands from my personal collection.

XOXO

    Yesterday, Daryl – today, Daisy. Delightful, my dear.

    • Thank you! This was fun – I have not forgotten about getting the brand of shoes for you. I looked at them and it is only written very faintly (like etched) in the sole. It is also in Italian. But, next time I am in the store with them on I will transcribe the words. Thanks for your patience!

    Take your time. It’s not like I need any more shoes! My husband keeps comparing me to Imelda Marcos. Don’t I wish.
