My new Tom Binns floral cuff

For the last year (or two?) I've been totally in love with the series of cuffs Tom Binns designed with the faux crystal flower motifs, and I am extremely excited to have one now! They reminded me a bit of some of the jewelry little Edie (of Grey Gardens fame) used to wear. I appreciate really heavy jewelry and this cuff is nice and weighty. Wearing it kind of feels like you stuck your fist through a disco ball-it throws little rainbows of light everywhere you go.

Today I wear it with a J. Crew t shirt, Marni heels, and a Dries van Noten skirt my mother purchased in 89 and has handed down to me! The more I wear this skirt the more I love it…it is one of the most special pieces of my wardrobe. I have a feeling I'll be wearing this all the time this winter-I am getting into really long skirts.

  1. Tom Binns jewelry is so amazing. That is such an epic find.
    (I could totally see Little Edie wearing it as well!)

    I love it! Your taste in jewelry is amazing. You should do a post entirely on it. I am thinking about buying that Antonio Palladino ring you have but I’m not sure because I don’t know what it looks like up close. Do you think you can take a couple of close-up pictures of it and send them to me? I would be eternally grateful.

    Your outfit is beautiful! Did you see the cover of the most recent WWD accessories magazine (I think it was most recent!) … the model is wearing a huge cuff similar to yours! Totally blinged out!

    Gorgeous cuff – Tom Binns is a genius! I love how you rock tees and sweatshirts – and you have convinced me to start wearing my crazier heels more often – nothing jazzes up a simple outfit like a pair of insanely high shoes.

    As always, you’re such a great dresser. I like when younger girls aren’t afraid to wear long skirts. It’s just a cool look to pull off! Who are you on tFS if you don’t mind me asking?

  25. Fabulous earrings. I like them very much. I still don’t have this type in my home collection. They looks very pretty.
