Frost Yourself

Last week, one of my other besties and I embarked on a weeknight out in Venice, finding ourselves as impromptu party crashers. Strolling along Abbot Kinney in demure sweaters fit for the cold we came upon a store opening.

To our satisfaction, we were testimony to Alexis Bittar's first steps outside of New York. The budding male jewelry designer, who molds lucite by hand into statement pieces, finally arrived on the West Coast.  Now you can start to imagine the speed at which our jaws dropped, especially when the bouncer asked if we wanted to be admitted to the soiree to peruse the goods ourselves.

Trying our best to fit in with the local hipster and New York import attendees, we were extremely appreciative of the kind gesture and made our way up the wooden plank stairs and into the small concrete room. Slightly intimidated by the fashionable roster of guests, which included the designer himself and fashion journalist Rose Apodaca Jones, we felt like thieves casing a rich joint for valuable goods.

The experience was sinful, beautiful and decadent. Thus the party was a success, as this is the way jewelry is supposed to make one feel.

Some frosting suggestions for the holidays...notice how obsessed I am with 70's inspired, structural pieces. A little bit of bling goes a long way!
