I've always appreciated an artists ability to capture the beauty of mass-produced and seemingly ordinary objects. After all, it is an artists keen ability to observe the world around them in unique ways that allows them to create profound work of their own. Sabine Pearlman takes this to a new level with her cross-section photographs of ammunition. As described by Pearlman, "the cross-sections reveal a hidden complexity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It's a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition." So beautiful.

half-circle backpack

half-circle backpack in cubic, olive, & busy floral
There are countless jewels at Kate Spade Saturday, but the piece I'm drawn to most is the Half-Circle Backpack. It's cute in every pattern, playful yet classy, and has just enough of a retro feel to make it a long-lasting piece. I'm just not sure how to pick a pattern. Did I mention it converts into a cross-body?

the only diamond i'd want

I wear a pair of diamond earrings daily because they were my grandmothers, but aside from that I've never been a big fan of diamonds. I think Stefanie Sheehan's simple and beautiful take on the concept of a diamond ring is the perfect substitute.

the perfect spring shoe

As I look outside at the snow falling, I can't help but dream about warmer weather... and these perfect shoes. I've already planned so many outfits to wear them with, even though I haven't bought them yet.
