VIKA GAZINSKAYA Pink Silk Flamingo Dress with Black Sleeves Size 4

Most of the times social media and style blogs are used just for fun; but sometimes they can launch a career for someone who might have been otherwise overlooked.  This is the case for Vika Gazinskaya, a Moscow native who had been working as an fashion assistant since going to design school in the late 1990’s.  Her street style started being noticed on top fashion blogs like the Sartorialist and Tommy Ton’s Jak & Jill.  With Gazinskaya’s notoriety climbing, she was able to launch her own company that specializes in creating pieces that have a structured yet voluminous shape as well as a touch of artistic whimsy.  This aesthetic is perfectly shown in the adorable dress we just received.  Pink silk creates a straight sheath cut for the main body but is accented with both volume and whimsy, just as promised.  Flamingos lined up under trees are printed in a hand drawn pattern that has us dreaming of sunnier days.  The volume is highlighted within the puffed black sleeves that have small pleats along the edge that creates the structure within the puff.  Designed with an off the shoulder cut and corset style boning within the bust, this dress will have everyone talking about your style!

JEWELRY:

YOSSI HARARI 24k Yellow Gold Disc Earrings

Istanbul based jeweler, Yossi Harari, claims he knew he was destined to be a jewelry designer by the age of 8.  This passion that developed early on led him to pursue this dream and he now holds an esteemed reputation in this business due to his dedication to hand crafting pieces only out of 24k gold.  Never comprimising that hand detail, Yossi refuses to use castings or to source out any of his wires or hook used to finish a piece.  The earrings we offer today are a simple and elegant flat disc shape that features a 3-D ridge down the center, and a small ball bead detail on base.  The disc itself, measures just over 1″, but the full drop of the earring with hook included is 1 3/4″ long.  Retailed for approximately $3,500.  Priced at $1,500.

P&V BY JOE Zuni Turquoise Petit Point Squash Blossom Necklace – SOLD

The Squash Blossom necklace motif was originally a Navajo tradition, brought over by the Spanish in the early 1800’s (originally with a Moorish “Evil Eye” as the symbol).   The Navajo acquired German silver and became masters of historic metalsmithing, and later transformed the pendant into a crescent called a “Naja”, a time-honored shape, usually adorning the necks of their horses.  The blossoms which cascade up the neck are an interpretation of Spanish-Mexican pomegranate blossoms.  Other native tribes began to make their own Squash Blossom necklaces at the turn of the 20th century, and this amazing example is Zuni.  Twelve turquoise petit point blossoms hang along the neck on a double strand of round silver beads, while a 4-inch (3.5-inch wide) petit point crescent pendant hangs at the base.  The necklace hangs a total 19 inches in length, and is bears the artist hallmark P.&V. BY JOE.  This awe-inspiring collectible vintage piece is priced at $1,200. SOLD

ELIZABETH LOCKE 19K and Smokey Quartz Intaglio Ring, Size 5.75
