dievca had to run to SoHo for a gift that could only be bought in a store located there. she rarely goes to that neighborhood and decided that she would wander into a few places that are not normally on her radar. Also, she would allow herself to splurge if she found something amazing.
Peter Hermann — a great leather handbag store
BREYDO — luxury fragrances, body care, candles – where she needed to buy the gift
A.P.C. — clothing brand from France
Bershka — inexpensive clothing, Spain
Maison Close — Lingerie
Two stores that closed:
dievca stopped by COS, & Other Stories, Agent Provocateur, Karl Lagerfeld, Camper, Wolford plus Intermix on the way thru~
After seeing nothing interesting to buy, dievca was feeling smug — until her eyes were caught by a jewelry boutique window which offered a significant chain necklace on black velvet.
It was stunning.
she stepped in to the store and there were many lovely items which hinted at BDSM – chains, handcuffs, etc.
dievca was enticed by a simple chain ring design that came in three finishes:
As dievca was paying, she realized that she had written a blog post in 2014 about this Brazilian jewelry designer, Jack Vartanian. At that time. the pieces he offered were all 14K and 18K gold — beautiful and expensive. The pieces that dievca bought are sterling silver with 18K and rhodium finishes. Much less expensive, but still beautiful.
Check out the other pieces:
