ManiaMania Jewelry- Spring 2011

Posted by Francesca Alfano On Tuesday, December 28, 2010 1 comments

The Australian jewelry design duo, Melanie Kamsler and Tamila Purvis, have created one of a kind bohemian statement pieces for their jewelry label, ManiaMania. The two met while working at fashion magazines in Sydney, and bonded over their attraction to jewelry and love of the '60s and 70's. The latest collection, Rêve, was inspired by Vali Myers, a fellow Aussie, gypsy traveler and muse to Andy Warhol and Marianne Faithfull. “We’re interested in the idea of redefining archetypes, symbols and creating pieces of jewelry that become a part of our very own signature style,” Kamsler says. Their collection has already has caught the attention of models Erin Wasson and Abby Lee Kershaw, who is featured in their Spring 2011 Campaign.

I am obsessing over the brass cuff picture below, which can be purchased online here!

I am always willing to test out new products but there are some I just can't live without. Every girl needs their go-to essential products. These staple products, should include a great daily moisturizer, mascara, lip balm, lipstick, face wash, and eye liner. I am a huge fan of sticking to natural made products, hence my strong love for Kiehls, Burts Bee's, and Bare Minerals. Above are some of my the everyday beauty products out there that will hopefully change your life too!

Bye Bye Skinny Jeans :(

Is everyone ready to trade in their skinny jeans for 70's inspired denim?? 2011 trends show that flared trousers are back! Personally, I am too short to wear this style all the time but I love the silhouette created by these high waisted wide legged trousers.

The Nicholas Kirkwood S/S 2011 Collection is fabulous. Kirkwood features design elements such as wooden heels, tassels, bright colors, and even plexi heels making this collection matchless. I can't pick a favorite, I dig them all. Which ones do you like best?

Plenty of guys I know have asked for a backpack at some point in time and its difficult to find something that is quality yet still looks cool. Poor fellows can't carry around a purse around like us ladies. This sturdy LAYERXlayer pack is so perfect and stylish ! Made from durable USA cotton denim, this pack boasts stainless steel hardware, beeswax-dipped edges to prevent fraying, versatile rope systems, and detachable pockets. Shit is serious!

I'm a bit obsessed with these precious pumps form Loeffler Randall snakeskin pumps. The pattern is hypnotizing and I love the added ruffle detail. They are also a bit retro.... now only if I could splurge.
