Layla, my love
So why not start off with something I've been obsessing over for months now. I visit her usually twice a week, sometimes I actually go in and try her on, other times I just walk by the window and stare longingly. Her name is Layla. This necklace is one of the most beautiful things to ever catch my eye and I've been trying to raise funds, rationalize, and talk myself into buying her but I just haven't gotten there yet. It's made by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels - a jewelry and accessory designer made up of 2 sisters; Elizabeth & Kathryn (another reason I love them, because my sister and I are also Elizabeth & Katherine) and I spotted her at Looc Boutiqe in Boston's South End. It's made with hand-knotted Liberty fabric, Amethyst, and glass beads - as if that's not enough it has a leather buckle for the closure in the back, I'm really a sucker for a nice leather buckle as it always reminds me of Hermes. Well, I certainly feel like this was a good start because I'm smiling now!
