With warmer temperatures now here, I have been shedding my winter coat for lighter styles! And what is better to add to your summer ensemble than some flash? I visited Efva Attling for summer inspired pieces, and this designer did not disappoint.
From Sweden and a model, Ms. Attling has been designing jewelry since the age of eleven. But the runway could not stop her from her pursuing her passion – jewelry design. Ms. Attling’s collections each tell a story. Working with precious metals and precious stones, she created strings of butterflies to a starry sky at night. Wearing one of these pieces will certainly make you stand out from the crowd.
One of my favorite pieces in the store was a ring made into a cross made of 18 carat gold, and conflict free diamonds with the highest clarity.
And for the man looking to pop the question, Ms. Atling has a wedding selection that would make any future bride scream “YES!” The mixture of colorful precious stones and diamonds are sure to turn heads and make her feel all the more special because of the unique designs.
So, whether you are looking for that once of a kind piece, or to let someone know that they are the one, Efva Attling’s designs is for you. Stop in and indulge yourself or your love.

It’s important to protect your skin from potential sun damage all year-long, and one of the best ways to do that is by wearing sunscreen. But, if you want an added layer of protection, while still looking chic, check out some of the accessories from Bloxsun. The company offers what they call “undercover sunwear” with UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+ fabric proven to block 98% of the sun’s UV rays without the use of chemicals or additives.
The thin, delicate skin on the hands is more prone to premature aging than all other parts of the body. When driving or participating in outdoor activities, you can wear Bloxsun Sun Gloves ($40, bloxsun.com), which offer discreet yet effective sun protection. The nude-colored stretch nylon gloves feature friction dots on the palms to provide UV protection without compromising grip.
And, while running around town or lounging at the pool, you can wear Bloxsun Sun Scarves ($68, bloxsun.com) to reduce the risk of sun damage and skin cancer. Wear it over your head or as a wrap.

It’s that time of year again – Coachella – the annual music festival that brings out droves of people to bake in the sun while listening to groovy tunes. The one fashion trend that has always been a staple at the event is floral headbands. I’ve sourced the web to find some worthy of the beachy waves it will adorn.
The prayers have been answered for all sassy fashionistas who are looking to stand out in a crowd and enhance their fabulousness. A new couture frame line #touchedbykymmi is aiming to adorn the faces of fashion-forward individuals with one-of-a-kind specs designed in a variety of colors and embellishments.
The collection was created by Kymmi Tea, who combined her love for designer sunglasses and her need to upgrade what is seen as “normal” to launch #TouchedByKymmi. And, the collection is anything but normal – the web store features ornate specs designed with everything from gems to flowers to chains, and named with unique hashtags such as #BrunchWithOprah and #PinUpVixen. The goal was to develop an accessory that is seen as the “shapewear” for the face, with frames that are just as beautiful as the makeup applied.
Since its launch the frames have proven to be a must-have accessory, as they have been seen on numerous runways and reality TV stars including Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez, as well as talk show host Wendy Williams.
