If you’re anything like me, your Instagram feed is filled with fashion blogger, models, and other aspirational people that are more fascinating than who I goal myself to be like. That aside, sometimes their trend rub off on me and this fashion week was no exception. Fashionistas (I hate that word for the record) and style icons across the board seem to feel that wearing jackets as actual jackets instead of a shrug or shawl is passé. Not that I agree-sleeves and I generally get along, but I found myself becoming just another sheep in the herd. However, I accessorized in a way that most of them are not, with our newst fine jewelry line: Ginette NY. Sleek, sexy, and a little sweet the 18k rose gold collection we received left us blown away. A perpetual fan of letting my jewels do the talking, I suited up and hit the streets, well the alley behind our studio not quite NYC but far cooler in my opinion. Check out the awesome collection, and decide how you feel about sleeves as accessory.
Ginette Rose Gold Collar, Rose Gold Hoops, and Rose Gold and Diamond strip studs
Rose Gold rings by Ginette, FARIS, and Hitchcock Madrona. Black Gold Nico Ring by Selin Kent
Loren Stewarts XL Chain Bracelet, and my wide silver HM Bangle Cuff have yet to come off my arm. Capped off with my Ampersand as Apostrophe (removable) clutch in Buffalo Leather and I’m ready for front row…at the bar of my choosing.
Whether Fashion Week viewing, or strolling to your local dive these Ginette pieces are sure to make your cool, absolutely effortless. Throw in some leather accents, and your favorite pair of shades and you’re good to go.
Iko Ino Necklace, Nora Kogan Lip Cuff
I don’t know about you, but January always leaves me pining for the Summer Sun (which I spend most of August complaining about). I’m never satisfied with the weather. It seems, my seasonal “the grass is always greener” attitude is in full swing at the moment. As a result I’m sharing my “beach basics” shot on our retreat to Anacortes this past August. Hitting the beach is all about looking your best with very minimal effort. For me, this begs for Iko Ino’s Traffic chain, Pamela Love’s Five Spike Earring, a sexy-surrealist Man Ray Lip Cuff from Nora Kogan and my favorite one piece that absolutely needed a moment. So, turn on your happy light, scroll through, and maybe-just maybe summer won’t feel so far away.

Fall is here! And this October baby could not be happier. Everything good comes back as soon as the leaves start turning: fall tv shows, grandpa sweaters, Pumpkin Spice (although I’m not convinced that is actually a good thing) and LAYERING! Never one to shy away from layering in any form, I have been known to layer sweaters on sweaters, with a jacket on top… or in this case a sweater, on a dress…on jeans? Why not! It’s Fall, anything goes!
I chose to go heavy on the clothing layers, so for my jewelry simple statements felt perfectly appropriate. Opting for our Hitchcock Madrona XL Gold Bars to pair with my constant companion: Catbird’s Chained To My Heart stud. Topped off with Moscot’s classic Lemtosh and Yestadt’s Nomad hat (it’s packable!) for some timeless, masculine touches.
Xenia Mara chains from her newest collection, and the delicate BOMB necklace by Faris were the perfect combination. They have opposing lengths and scale that seem mismatched but work so well together! And a total departure from my everyday, heavily layered look.
Again, keeping it delicate and simple on my fingers, with a cool statement stack by Selin Kent on my right hand to throw things off just a little bit. A curveball that is somehow still perfectly within the lines. Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m off to protest the manufacturing of pumpkin spice chapstick. But not before throwing on another sweater. Stay layered!

Selin Kent is our newest fine jewelry artist at Hitchcock Madrona. We love the clean lines, elegant geometrical shapes, and unique stacking options that come along with these beautiful pieces. Each piece is handcrafted in New York out of responsibly sourced 14k golds and precious stones. Kent has always been inspired by the architecture from her time in Vienna, New York, Istanbul, and Paris. These are timelessly modern pieces with just enough edgy sophistication to get our hearts racing!

We all have those days: your outfit is on point, your hair is magically doing that swoopy thing you normally spend hours trying to get right. You walk out the door absolutely feeling yourself. So what do you do? You take a selfie, naturally! The world needs to know how absolutely fabulous you are on an average Tuesday. We are a big fan of the selfie at Hitchcock Madrona, so much so we even take them while shooting for the blog. Welcome to the Selfie Society.
The selfie comes in many different forms, a favorite of ours is the “Candid Selfie”. Moscot sunglasses (The Lemotosh), Dannijo necklace.
Scarf by Weston Earth Images.
Erica opts for a more direct approach, with a flirty duck face.
When taking a selfie in public, it’s important to check who might be watching before posing.
