Giles & Brother is an affordable jewelry collection that I just love. Philip Crangi is the brain behind the brand and seeing pictures of him and his style (find some below this post) totally put his designs in perspective: cool, edgy and functional.
I love the idea of mixed metal, thus the Trove Ray Gold Plated Necklace is a must-have for me and anyone looking for a statement necklace to splurge on this month. Its gold-plated brass, sterling silver and crystal embellished pendants are a chic take on safety pins, giving it a sense of glamour and edge simultaneously. Perfect with your favorite LBD or a plain tee and skinnies.
Here is how you can wear it now:
I am dying to buy a great pair of lace-up booties for Fall. Opening Ceremony’s Laetitia Platform Lug Booties ($569) are at the top of my list and are perfect for the season in a rich bordeaux color. Which fashion-minded woman isn’t lusting over a Stella McCartney bag each season? The Bouclé Shoulder Bag ($1095) is totally chic and will look perfect alongside the Trove Ray Gold Plated Necklace. As much as I love a LBD, I love a little navy dress even more. Pencey Standard’s Drape Dress ($99) is a basic navy dress with a twist, for the office or a night out.
