Golden Season Has Arrived!

September 23rd was the official first day of fall! I LOVE fall. Everything about it makes me happy. The leaves, the pumpkins, the sweaters... So in celebration of my favorite season- I decided to pull out this deliciously golden dress made by Co, a Los Angeles-based womenswear brand founded in 2011 by Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern. To top if off, I decked it out with one of my favorite necklaces designed by yours truly :) This hand-carved teak necklace belongs to a line I started in 2016 called Tala.   Tala offers lifestyle pieces that range from wonderful necklaces like these to...
