Last Saturday, I was thrilled with the statement necklace I had designed for my spring inspired photo shoot. I had an outfit, shoes and bag styled and ready to go, until I looked out the window. In all of my excitement in planning for the shoot, I had barely noticed the sprinkling white snowflakes outside. The snow, had ruined my completely lovely idea. Ok, think fast. I’ve always been inspired by beautiful, wintery photographs. I decided to take advantage of the snow, and shoot the photos in Central Park. Wearing a burgundy peplum dress, black tights, stiletto boots, and a fur trimmed cardigan, I set out to explore the park. The Golden Circles Necklace and the Gold Rose Cuff, I designed perfectly accessorized the winter ensemble. Lost in the beauty of Central Park, I spun my red umbrella, took in the moment and enjoyed the snowy surprise.
