I am more and more inspired by my daughter Amber Ridinger‘s style every day. You must follow her on Instagram for the best fashion ideas and advice – she puts together amazing outfits with the perfect blend of vintage, classic and trendy. She is back in NYC today after a quick getaway to the Bahamas and she bundled up against the cold in a gorgeous vintage blazer adorned with vintage Chanel pins. What was once a stuffy accessory is now undeniably chic and if you want to bring back the brooch, shop Amber‘s look for less below! xo

I have a love affair with designer vintage accessories – bags, scarves, jewelry – they are like true works of art and it fascinates me how something so stunning and rare can span decades and never lose an ounce of style. My favorite is FD Gallery on 65th street; they curate the best of the best of old and new jewelry in NYC and I can spend hours in their shop, surrounded by beautiful treasures. FD‘s greatest collection is from Cartier and as a collector I get so many of my pieces there, recently this unbelievable Cartier gold panther bracelet that I can’t wait to wear.
If you are also a vintage jewelry collector or know someone who is, I promise FD won’t disappoint. I couldn’t keep this secret to myself any longer – especially with the holidays, this gem of a place had to be shared with my fellow collectors. To browse, check out www.fd-inspired.com.

Modern luxury is about something special, one-of-a-kind, rare, coveted. Ours is a collection of exceptional 20th century jewels, comprised of pieces from the most prestigious houses. With a central case dedicated entirely to Cartier of all periods, icons such as the Tutti Frutti, the Panther and a Mystery Clock are represented.

Chopard has collaborated with my absolute favorite store for its Haute Joaillerie collection, a stunning jewelry line inspired by iconic Disney princesses! Harrods will exclusively feature the Chopard Haute Joaillerie collection, now available exclusively until the end of December and ties in to their Christmas 2012 window displays. I can’t wait to see these beautiful pieces in person while here in London!
The 10-piece collection represents our Disney favorites including Ariel, Belle and Cinderella with a selection of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and hairpieces. Co-president and artistic director of Chopard, Caroline Scheufele, revealed to Vogue UK that “the world of Walt Disney has often been an inspiration for a variety of Chopard. I am very happy to have been given the opportunity to design the famous Princesses’ pieces of jewellery.”

Rose gold is that sweet and spicy shade that flatters all skin tones when it comes to makeup and it’s also true for accessories! Rose gold watches have become wildly popular over the last year and I even added rose tone touches to the ceramic watch with my Yours by Loren for HSN collection. If you’re in the market for a new timepiece, check out these fresh options for women’s rose gold watches below! Xo
