TEXT, VIVIAN KELLY

This week, which yes, included Christmas Day, was nonetheless dominated by the fun problems presented by most recent acquisition while on THE HUNT. The dress [no coat] will be the centerpiece of my New Year’s outfit. Pamme is going to the bother of bringing-out the fine china, crystal and champagne. While I love my black wool and taffeta Vera Wang dress, it’s too minimalistic. For this occasion, more is more, and as such, better
The dress is the centerpiece, but it comes with its unique set of requirements: the right hair makeup, shoe, and jewelry.

I won’t take-off my platinum and diamond wedding band, but other than that, the only jewelry I’ll wear is the starter piece in my Miriam Haskell collection – a pair of pearl and gold clip on earrings. If you’re not familiar with Miriam Haskell Costume Jewelry, here’s a little 411 from ww.miriamhaskell.com
Miriam Haskell has been synonymous with impeccable style and beautiful jewelry since the 1920’s. Haskell Jewels, headquartered in New York City, is a leading designer, marketer and distributor of costume jewelry. Founded in 1926 by Miriam Haskell, she established her brand name as one that represented, and continues to represent, the utmost in style and quality by creating hand crafted jewelry with keen attention to detail.
While the company is busy with initiatives that involve some of the majors such as Macy’s and Nordstrom, it is her VINTAGE pieces that I consider “true Haskell” and which experts such as Camilla Dietz Bergeron deem worthy of collecting.

Below, some shots of the journey on this phase of THE HUNT.
