For many of us it’s been some time since school was last in session, and we can’t help but wax nostalgic when September rolls around.  Lately, there is more to be missed from back-to-school season than afternoon recess, field trips and flavorless foods served with an ice cream scoop.

MERMAID JEWELRY

BY Bette Bentley in Style

When I was a little girl, my parents bribed me with the Little Mermaid on VHS as a materialistic means of getting me to stop biting my fingernail to the nubs.  I stopped. I watched.   I guess I'm going through another mermaid phase.  Growing my hair out.  Wearing flowy clothes.  ANYWAY, while in Houston visiting my family I stumbled upon an amazing up-and-coming jewelry designer - Christina Miller. Her pieces are incredible.  All ... Read More

It appears that the not so subtle whisper of autumnal fancies is creeping into my Ipod in an exceptionally fabulous way. The crisp breeze and changing of the leaves harkens the sweet romantic sounds of my favorite smorgasbord of sultry Parisian pop, which always includes a healthy dose of Serge Gainsbourg. Compelling me to observe the world in the most imaginary of ways, his picturesque crooning and composition turns my everyday mundane into a stylized French ... Read More
