More faux Verdura

I found this Kenneth Jay Lane faux Verdura listed at's Pick of the Week for August. This is getting even closer to the Coco version. Yum! Now if only it comes in a sort of ivory version, as well as the black, we will be in business.

Verdura cuffs

Whenever I see these photos of Chanel with her Verdura cuffs, I feel instant lust. Of course, to buy the 'real thing' would set one back several months rent, if they even make the same ones anymore.

You can wear the simplest basic dress and slide these cuffs on your arm and go anywhere. We won't even talk about the ropes of pearls.

Imagine my delight when I saw these Kenneth Jay Lane cuffs on Net-a-Porter recently. Why, you could spend more for a couple of glasses of champagne at the rooftop bar of the Peninsula Hotel in New York City!

What's particularly entrancing is that he pierced the center of the stonework, so that your skin will show thru.

I can't decide, the black one or the white one?
