Crocheted Jewelry by Luvasis

I was recently at the Brooklyn Flea Market in Fort Greene. I spotted these great crocheted jewelry pieces by designer Luvasis. I have always been a big fan of crocheted accents on clothing and handbags. I especially like the juxtaposition between the metal and the cloth in this jewelry line.

Hem Tape for Denim

Bristols 6 has introduced a great new product called Hem Tape for Denim. It is the first product of it's kind (why didn't someone think of this sooner)! It is specially designed as a quick fix to alter the length of jeans and other pants. It can be used on other fabrics as well. Sometimes when you want to wear flip flops with your jeans they are too long, but you also want them to be able to accommodate your three inch platforms. Hem Tape is the perfect solution to the problem! Available at for $12.

Dossier Shop in Fort Greene Brooklyn

Dossier a fashion and art magazine has opened a shop in my neighborhood (Fort Greene) in Brooklyn. The shop is in the lower level of a brownstone. In addition to vintage clothing the store also carry's lines by Bless, Bodkin and Electric Feathers and a few lines of jewelry. They also carry art books, small run magazines and other artsy stuff. Posed as a community space, I think they need to host an event and get us locals hooked.

Perfect Summer Make Up by Sonia Kashuk

Sonia Kashuk's newest collection of cosmetics are perfect for the summer. I was lucky enough to get to try some of the fabulous new products. My favorite is the Super Sheer Liquid Tint. It comes in a pump like a foundation but it is light and shimmery and gives your skin a perfect summer glow. The Ultra Shine Sheer Lip Glosses are equally as light and refreshing and give your lips a color boost without weighing them down or making them sticky. Sonia Kashuk's line is shipping to stores now, check out her website for more information.
