This week’s current item to covet: these insanely cool bracelets at TownHome. The simple beauties — hammered silver and gold-plate on a silk cord — are handmade by Parisian designer Nilaï (warning: the site’s all in French).
The bracelets are $95 each, and TownHome currently has only eight in stock (two gold, four silver, and two silver on a chain instead of the cord). Read more »

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of wearing full arms of bracelets. (I even have a huge dish next to my computer at work where I take off my dozens of bracelets, so that I may type without injuring myself.) But then the term ‘arm party’ was coined and everyone started to clang around with their bangles and cuffs up to the elbows. It seemed, suddenly, basic. So I invested in my earring game. Read more »

TownHome, Rittenhouse’s little gem of a jewelry store (no pun intended), is celebrating its twelfth birthday this week, no small feat for a brick-and-mortar in the age of online shopping. How are they celebrating? By giving away awesome party favors to customers. Happy birthday to you.

While the Oscar dresses were relatively ‘meh’ last night, the jewelry was on point. Margot Robbie donned fringe; Cate Blanchett wore a pile of turquoise; and Naomi Watts dazzled in a pair of massive sapphires. It all left us craving some bling for ourselves. Playfully art deco in green and sapphire, this statement ear cuff from Stone & Strand (it was founded by a Wharton grad) fits the bill. Plus, you don’t even need a Dior gown to wear it. Read more »

J.K. Simmons, we hate to admit it, but Bradley Cooper one-upped you last night. While you were imploring the Oscar audience to call their moms, local boy Cooper was already sitting right next to his mom, who just happens to be his usual awards-show date.
His mom, local resident Gloria Cooper, looked stunning in a black and teal embellished gown, which she complemented with a smattering of sparkly accessories. Of the baubles, her gorgeous statement earrings were a recent buy from Abington boutique Artware. Yep, that means you can go buy a pair for yourself. Read more »
Delicate pendant necklaces are jewelry staples here at Shoppist HQ. Editor Emily wears a “J” for her husband, while I can’t leave the house with my gold sign-language “M.” Understated and unobtrusive, toss-on-with-anything pendants have garnered staple status for a reason. That’s why we were psyched to learn that one of our favorite Philly designers and illustrators Melissa Noucas (see her 6 Questions installment here!) has rolled out a collection of necklaces. The collection includes three necklaces in shades of gold and rose gold and come ready-to-wear on 24-inch chains. We can’t think of a chicer everyday accessory. Click here for shopping deets.

Next: The inspiration you need to purge your closet.
Pile it on and dream of summer.
When you think of sample sales, you think of frenzied crowds, rabid women fighting to the death over the last size 7 pair of Jimmy Choos, stripping down in the middle of a crowded room and praying that you’ll fit into that Saint Laurent jacket. Avoid this mess but still reap all the benefits with online sample sales—the more shopper-friendly way to score cool stuff at bargain-basement prices.
The one to shop now is Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer, a collection of spring/summer-perfect accessories crafted of bright industrial rope and metals. (You might recognize the name from its collaborations with J.Crew and Mara Hoffman).
