Necklaces from New Orleans Shopping in the French Quarter!

New Orleans Necklace

When I visit New Orleans, I always stay in the French Quarter because of its rich history, beauty, and culture.  On one particular visit, I was strolling down Royal Street near Canal Street and I came upon this jewelry store.  The pieces were exquisite.  They were all handmade in the store by Italian artisans.  I bought several pieces, but the two necklaces that I’m showing here truly took my breath away.  The intricate detail in each necklace make a statement and spark a conversation wherever I go.  The sad part?  When I visited New Orleans again sometime later, the store was no longer there, falling prey to hard times or just needing to leave New Orleans perhaps.

What I’m left with are these two stunning pieces from that wonderful trip to New Orleans with my husband.  I’m so excited to share them both with you!

Betsey Johnson Handbags Beautifully Crafted Handbags by the Prolific Designer

Betsey Johnson Handbag Pink Bow

Among the plethora of products that prolific designer Betsey Johnson offers that includes jewelry, accessories, home goods, shoes, and apparel, she also designs handbags which are my personal favorite.  Whenever I carry a Betsey Johnson handbag, I always get compliments because they are designed to garner attention (and that’s why I love it!).

Below are two handbags by Betsey Johnson that I recently purchased from Saks Fifth Avenue.  One has a giant pink bow on it which always get some stares and the other has plenty of fringe which is totally on trend right now.  I have only carried them a couple of times, but I’ve noticed that the leather is so soft and supple and the straps fit easily over my shoulder without falling off.  In short, these handbags are awesome!
