There’s something about a little flash of metal right between your collarbones that I find both sweet and sexy. A charm-like drop is the perfect way to express a little something about yourself (maybe a religious symbol, a lucky charm, or your child’s initial, as Nicole Richie shows below) or just add a tiny bit of sparkle to your daily routine.

Right now Portero is featuring scarves in Best Values, and I couldn’t be more excited to discuss the merits of these square pieces of fabric. I have a large collection of scarves, some fancy and some that I chose on the cheap merely for the color or pattern. What I love most about scarves is their functionality–they can be used so many different ways and on so many different occasions.
Yes, you totally read that right–Portero is offering free shipping to U.S. customers on any orders over $1,000 from now through March 31. That still gives you five days to take advantage of great auctions while keeping your pursestrings in check.

I’ve been going on and on about spring approaching, and although today started with a chilly, dreary morning, I’m still really anticipating a long stretch of lovely weather. I recently made my seasonal bag purchase–a metallic pewter bag from Botkier (mine is actually in “silver snake”)–and the celebrities have also been out and about sporting brightly hued totes in the past few days.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I have a soft spot for jewel-themed home decor. My latest obsession is a new line by Aquaplus called Aqua Jewels created by award winning designer Marcel Wanders. There’s not a ton of information out there yet, but I do know that it is a luxury faucet range including models for the basin, bidet, bath faucets and shower fixtures. Apparently, there are also complimentary accessories.
Lastly, here are some more classic designs from the duo. Chains are their bread and butter, and they often mix the twisted gold links with colored ceramic links. At right, a multistrand necklace of twisted coral shows their roots: both designers are from Torre del Grecco, a mecca for coral jewelry.
