Behind every great brand is a unique story, and the same holds true for Spanish brand UNOde50, a line of handcrafted accessories that was developed with the idea of creating just 50 units of each design. Today, the company holds true to this promise of exclusivity by releasing 50 limited edition pieces with each collection.
Each item has a unique and distinctive design, and also features a small padlock icon designed to symbolize the protection of the exclusivity of the number of pieces. Just as unique as the design, are the collection themes which include inspiration from earth and celestial elements.
One of my favorites is the Orbits & Lunar phases collection, which is inspired by the new beginnings and experiences that comes along with each new moon. The designs have been carefully combined with leather and are silver plated. Items in the collection have names such as “Space Crash” and “Out of Orbit.”
Another favorite is the Stars & Nebulas collection, which has a variety of gorgeous accessories to choose from, some of which include a stunning blue toned faceted prism Swarovski crystal. Fun names in the collection range from “All stars” to “Meteor shower.”
Other collections include “Air, Water & Sand,” “Animal Instinct” and “Gold Collection.”
UNOde50 can be found in over 40 countries with more than 100 stores around the world including Madrid, Rome, Milan, Berlin, New York, Miami, Tokyo, Moscow, Panama, Paris. To learn more, click here.
Professional nail care brand CND was responsible for 24 gilded nail designs at The Blonds Spring/Summer 2016 Show at MILK Studios in New York. The creations drew inspiration from ancient Egypt and including Cleopatra, the Sphinx and various elements of Egyptology, to compliment the dramatic, avant-garde clothing.
The elite artists of the CND Design Lab Team hand-sculpted the nails and embellishments with CND™ Liquid & Powder and BRISA™ Gel, then added layers of color with SHELLAC™ Brand 14+ Day Nail Color, VINYLUX™ Weekly Polish and CND™ Additives. Royal golden tones ruled the color palette – antiqued, shimmering and expensive – while accents of blue, turquoise, red and green added texture and dimension. Hieroglyphics, snake and crocodile skins, gold-plated wings, draped headdresses and scarab beetles were constructed and embellished with an array of unconventional materials, including feathers, foils, ribbons, chains, gems, jewels and stones. A sarcophagus nail even opened to reveal a mummified pharaoh donning the actual golden locks of designer Phillipe Blond. A result of over 600 combined hours of production, these highly sculptural designs were the perfect accessory for The Blonds’ theatrical collection.
“The CND team never ceases to amaze us with their unique creative vision. If we can dream it, they can bring it to life,” said The Blonds designer David Blond. “The nails are an integral part of our overall story. Seeing it all come to life on the runway is incredible,” added Phillipe Blond.
Nude undergarments are a must-have for women who want a polished look when wearing sheer or white clothing. But, for many women whose skin tones are darker than the average version of “nude” available on the market, which is usually a shade of beige, finding the perfect seamless undergarment can be difficult. A new hosiery and lingerie line, NubianSkin, is aiming to change that with the introduction of a line of essential undergarment needs, available in suitable skin-tones for women of color.
Nubian Skin founder, Ade Hassan, developed the line after being frustrated by the lack of undergarments that met the needs of ethic women. With the new line, women can choose from four different dark skin tone shades including Café au Lait, Caramel, Cinnamon and Berry. The company has a skin-tone matching guide on their website to help customers select the hue that best suits them.
Nubian Skin, which is based in London, recently launched at Nordstrom stores in the US and ships worldwide. Learn more.

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.

Spring has been cold here in NYC, which has me yearning for the warm summer months. I got excited when the weather warmed up enough over the weekend so I could wear a new top i just bought from Steps New York. The flowy chiffon fabric moves swiftly as I walk, allowing the spring breeze to seep through and cool me down. The most gorgeous part of the top has got to be the back, which features a chain embellishment that accentuates the upper back. The chain can be removed and worn as a necklace, bracelet or headpiece, so it’s multifunctional.
The front of the shirt features a collar adorned with crystals that come to life in the sun as it shimmers in the sun. This is the perfect top for Spring and event summer.
I paired the top with jeans and gold BCBG pumps. Full makeup look and details will be up on Instagram, so visit me there!
Last weekend was a beautiful spring day here in NYC, so I decided to pull out one of my favorite tops and paired it with jeans and heels a for a chic, but casual spring day outing. The top features a shimmery gold fabric with a teal stripe pattern, perfect for celebrating the sunshine and warmer weather.
For my makeup I kept it simple wearing Flower Beauty lipstick in Ginger Lilly on the lips. Because I was out in the sun, I chose to wear a bronzer with some spf in it, so I wore Physician’s Formula City Glow Daily Defense Bronzer SPF 30. On my eyes, I wore Physican’s Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Gel Cream Shadow & Liner Trio since the shimmers in it nicely matched my top.
What’s your go-to spring chic look?
