Isn't it romantic?
No one has to hit you over the head twice with a W Magazine for you to get that fall fashion is romantic--you get it--the lace, the velvet and the empire waists. Problem is, you're not exactly sure how to follow the trend without looking like you just stepped out of a Merchant Ivory film. Sounds like some affordable romantic accessories would doing the trick...sounds like a job for La Vie Parisienne.
I first discovered this delightful line in Aspen this summer and had to stop myself from buying *everything* in *every* color. Using jewelry molds from 1900s France and a method of applying old silver--these delightful Austrian crystal pieces will bring the romance to any outfit and yet, are simple enough to be worn everyday. Their new charm bracelets are to die for...
Some pieces can be found locally at Zelda Zen, 46 East Cross Street in Federal Hill or at Amarylis in the Gallery.
