Caviar Noir x 50 Shades x Trunk Show

Caviar Noir has done it again. Julie has created yet another piece women will love. Actually in this particular case, desire might be a better word.  It’s called the Anastasia Steele Necklace. Yup, jewelry inspired by the book series making women everywhere tremble in their reading glasses. Combing the two things chicks can’t get enough of…is like…the perfect match. The necklace incorporates stainless “Steele”, “pearls”, “chains”, and “handcuffs”. Ahem, use your imagination (and perhaps a few visual flashbacks from the book). I’m a big fan of jewelry with a story – but actually based on a story? It really can’t get any better. Oh wait it can. Both versions are now available on!

Also comes in a gunmetal chain:

And if you’re in the New York/New Jersey area, Caviar Noir will be having a trunk show featuring her new Fall/Winter collection. Come check out her amazing adornments in person – I’ll have a glass of wine with you if you do!

Don’t be shy…take some pics! And if you don’t have an Instagram or Twitter account, feel free to send me a pic of your purchase – how you wore it, the packaging, or whatever you wish at Keep in mind that every post helps a budding designer and/or vintager get their name out there. Because in the social media world, sharing really is caring.

Heads Ain’t Ready.

Lessons from the last month


1. Positivity is contagious.

2. How to make 5 different paper ninja stars. Thanks to my nephew.

3. Analytics are your best friend: Google Analytics, WordPress stats, statistics, etc. Don’t just read them. Translate them into ways to improve your business.

4. The history of gargoyles in NYC architecture is pretty fascinating.

5. Drop an egg in anything – a portobello cap, half of an avocado, bread with a hole cut out, a muffin pan lined with prosciutto, etc. Bake and it will taste delicious.

6. Same concept above goes for a denim/chambray shirt. Wear it with anything and it will look good.

7. For toned arms, two words: dips & push-ups.

8. I can’t survive very long without a creative outlet of some sort.

9. Same concept above goes for pizza.

10. What a SQL server is. Just kidding. I still have no idea what that really means. (But I’m Googling it RIGHT now, don’t you worry Neil)

Never, ever stop learning. Update: 10.15.12

Ahhhhhhhh. It’s been so long. We’ve been quiet for a while now due to some technical difficulties on the site. But we’re back. And we’re getting better.

Check out’s main categories and you’ll find a better way of navigating products that’s visually driven, giving your eyes the candy it deserves. Here’s a taste:
