Why is the concept of clean so difficult to grasp?Clean (defined) - free from dirt, marks and stains. We say the same patter to everyone that asks about consigning; items must be current-style, designer label, in excellent condition and recently cleaned. I often hear the comment "I only wore once", as if this somehow exonerates having the item(s) washed or dry cleaned. If you goes to a hotel and the bellboy shows you to your room and the bed is unmade; do you want him to tell you, "Oh, don't worry, they were only here for an hour so." It certainly is interesting when people become indignant and swear that they have not worn the item and suggest that maybe their maid wore their clothes when they're not looking. Right.... Preparing items for resale can be time consuming, and, yes, sometimes you have to pay to have something cleaned but it's only right and proper to do so.
I am usually not a big fan of jewelry marriages. I like items in their pure state but this little bracelet intrigues me quite a lot. Most likely it is because of my lifelong fascination with gems stones, rocks, semi-precious stones and pearls. In this number, we have a repousse white multi-floral plastic oval set in sterling silver which has been taken from another piece of jewelry. It has a 925 stamp on the back, as well as, a large initial M. There are four strands of different beads - faceted, unfaceted, ovals, rounds etc. All in various stripes, as well as, mottled colorings that look like agates, jasper, labradorite, and some other beads. I have no idea what they all are - just a really charming mixture.
Sometimes all you need is a little necklace made of rhinestones and gold tone metal to make you feel excited about the fast-approaching new year. This pretty choker could be worn with a formal gown, a white blouse and jeans, or even at your favorite poolside resort. Bring it on!
This absolutely adorable C3 cashmere crewneck sweater is perfect with leggings, boots and a hot chocolate, apres ski. Or, pair it with a Peter Pan collared blouse, skinny jeans and motorcycle boots for a night of frolicking with friends.
The penguins are in the upper back of the sweater.

The history of Burberry is so fascinating as it was designed before World War one in the late 1890s. During the war it was used by officers in the trenches and therefore was called...you guessed it, a "trench" coat. Burberry coats, purses and scarves have been desired for so many decades we can now say for over a century!!! I love companies that have stood the test of time and continue to deliver high quality and style all the while maintaining the integrity of the label.
