Herndon Heald Halo Ring
WHAT: Herndon Heald Halo Ring
WHY: Get tickled by turquoise with this earthy Herndon Heald piece. The punchy stone, riddled with beautiful imperfection thanks to clusters of hematite, is rustically set in hammered gold and finished with a contrasting antique sterling band. And that Southwestern vibe is über authentic: The brand, started by a couple of friends, is based in the Santa Fe mountains and has a studio in Austin as well. Think of the Halo ring as a shiny, wearable replacement for trekking to some glorious desert oasis!
AVAILABLE: HerndonHeald.com, $307
Levi’s for Intermix Shrunken Vintage Jean Jacket
WHAT: Levi Vintage Shrunken Vintage Jean Jacket for Intermix
WHY: Regardless of how long it’s been since you wore denim above the waist, there’s something fresh and spunky about this petite jean jacket from the classic purveyors of all things dungarees. Think of it as the spring replacement for your beloved leather number. This optimally distressed denim darling will segue effortlessly into summer – grass stains encouraged, mon cherie!
AVAILABLE: Intermix.com, $235
Holly Fulton Acrylic Plate Necklace With Python Detail
WHAT: Holly Fulton Acrylic Plate Necklace With Python Detail
WHY: Holly Fulton‘s Art Nouveau prints paraded down the runway for Fall inspired by the steamy love affair of Coco Chanel and the Duke of Westminster. With all the attention on the color-popping clothes, we almost missed her deliciously decadent accessories. Graphic shapes, punk metal spikes, and tribal trimmings offer a little something for everyone.
AVAILABLE: $649.12, BrownsFashion.com
Alexandre Herchcovitch Lava Clutch
WHAT: Alexandre Herchcovitch Lava Clutch
WHY: These gleaming nuggets of resin, carved to look like volcanic ash, were clutched down the runway at Alexandre Herchcovitch‘s NYFW show on Wednesday. The inky patterns and shining edges of the Lava Clutch make for total eye candy; luckily, you can whet your apetite pronto via AHAlife’s quirky curatorial roundup instead of waiting until fall. It’s lava-licious!
