I always love when Marina Larroude – senior market editor extraordinaire at Style.com – posts the season’s Accessories Index. Combing through the pages of comprehensively organized necklaces, earrings, bags, etc. inevitably consumes several hours of my work day and I enjoy every second of it. For some lust-worthy distraction, check out Marina’s incredible guide here.
We’re thrilled that Marina has included so much of the Lizzie Fortunato Jewels SS12 collection in the Index:
After all the time I spent perusing the accessories index (instead of making specs for new bags!) I decided to share some of my favorites.
First, the necklaces. Loving lots of whites and metallics, but the highlights for me were blue tones from Monique Pean and House of Waris, mint green from Pamela Love, and ice blue from LFJ!:

For earrings, these are my favorite from the LFJ SS12 collection; I love the multicolor enamel:

And all the earrings I want:
Onto bracelets… Monique Pean’s stackable ivory, etched and diamond-studded are to-die-for and I’ve been living in these graphic LFJSS12 cuffs:

Some more incredible bracelets … Eddie Borgo’s square bracelet is an awesome new take on his famous “spike” bracelets and I’m obsessed with Delfina Delettrez’s lion’s head cuff:

For the first season ever, LFJ was featured in the BAG section of the index in addition to the jewelry section!
Love all the stripes, graphics, and color-blocking of the season:

And some other SS12 clutches, hobos, satchels and totes that I’d quite like to own:

Thank you Marina for all the eye candy.
