Frankie was dear enough to stop by my place and chill for a bit, take a walk, allow me to give him a tour of our apartment and play with accessories. 
Anyone who knows me or has hung out with me at length knows that once you get me started on a piece or a line that I can't get enough of- well, I just can't stop talking. This cotton, indigo-dyed purse is hand knit by Peruvian artisans in Lima, and Mozh Mozh is dedicated to honoring the skills of the Shipibo-Conibo people. I mean, if you think this purse is sweet, look at this incredibly delicate and ethereal beaded purse like, couldn't you just die?!

I made it a point to pair the knit bag with my favorite knit top. Sometimes I call it my harlequin sweater, and sometimes I'll put it on, thinking about Renaissance garments with the eyelets and vents in them so that people could poke their linen tunics through the holes. I opted for more skin with my gingham wrap dress.

Precariously Placed


I love wearing rings on my outer fingers. Just a little inspired by Renaissance and Georgian-era paintings. 
It looks just a liiiiiittle precarious and all the more special- and these dainty chain rings by AUrate feel a little ancient even though they're finished in NYC. I wear these every day and they have never once slipped.

This cami dress/top is my new favorite thing to wear for warm nights out-
I'll always find an excuse to wear something maxi, especially if it's in a soft color and a flow shape. Is it a dress? Is it a top? It's both!

Decided to go with chandeliers on my ears and a lantern to hold the essentials.

Gold Geist

I'm a Geist- or, as the German word translates; a spirit beyond just a ghost or life force, but a floating, infinite sort of intellect. My dad took back my grandmother's maiden name when he was in college because he felt like he ought to live his life according to this word we don't quite have a perfect translation for in English, but universally sort of get.

I stopped by the Bing Bang NYC studios in Chinatown last year and placed a special custom order, the result of which you see here.
The brand was founded by Anna Sheffield, who is more prominently known for her namesake like of beautiful fine jewelry. Her designs are known for being unapologetically juxtaposed- daring and still sentimentally elegant. Bing Bang is a perfect, free-spirited little sister brand to Sheffield's namesake line of custom engagement jewelry and irreplaceable ultra-fine pieces 'cause they're meant for everyday, but they carry the same uncompromising reach for quality in fine jewelry.

Bing Bang's pieces are meant to be worn and knocked around every day. They're finished by hand, plated by hand, and they all have whispers of Sheffields' thinking: prongs are sharp, pearls and jewels are small and elegant, but always sourced and cut as if to only exist as wearable sparks. This here nameplate I'm wearing has quickly become one of my favorite pieces- not because it's my name (although I'm biased), but because it miraculously became a wearable statement: this is me. There's even a period made of a tiny garnet.
