This is a wearable, heart-shaped, Sterling Silver Scent Flask, in its original state with hallmarks from the Edwardian period. It is a functional perfume holder with a threaded top that closes securely. Fill it with your favorite perfume and have it hand engraved with a monogram or keep it as is – beautifully simple!
FALL FASHION COLOR TREND: BERRY
Berry is a big color for Fall 2013 as evidenced by the number of fall runway collections that included it (e.g. Valentino, Dior). Silver accents pop against this deep and rich backdrop, so bring out your white-gold, platinum, and antique silver jewelry.

In other fashion news, H&M’s Paris Collection 2013, featured in Elle (in February), arrived online yesterday 8/22. It can be purchased online, but won’t be in (select) stores until September. Some items have already sold out.
There area a number of fun and chic pieces: faux fur in black and white, beaded and embroidered dresses in blush, red, and nayv, and some great looking jackets and blazers. What it really comes down to is this – Will it look as great in-person as it does in the editorial layout? I’m wondering if the quality of the fabric and the construction will be good enough. I’ve ordered the over-the-knee boots (they call them knee high) and the black wool pea coat jacket. We’ll see…. Let us know if you’ve purchased something from this collection and what you think of it!
