We love this shot of our good friend & SUNO designer, Erin Beatty, on the New York Times site this week. She’s wearing floral prints from SUNO’s FW12 collection along with our oversized, graphic-print “Tales of the West I” clutch (in stores now), and looks awesome:
Speaking of show-stopping prints… we are now in PERU. I’ll be starting my trek from Cusco to Machu Picchu at the crack of dawn tomorrow but for today I am sourcing, sourcing, sourcing. The textiles here are beyond (some incredible throws & pillow shams will be in the Fortune Found section of our web store soon!)
More to come … Have a great week!
The Lizzie Fortunato SS12 collection is now up on the site & you will be able to shop at www.lizziefortunatojewels.com in just days!
Kathryn and I are off to Peru on Saturday. Lookout for Lizzie Fortunato online shopping (!!) and hopefully warm weather upon our return…

We’ve had some great online shout-outs recently, including the Cosmic View II necklace (one of my all-time favorites) on the awesome Grand Life site and a cute shot of my wrists on Refinery29.com:

Just returned from Austin, where I hung out with Katie (who we wrote about here), and our dear friend Ashley, who made the trip in from Denver.
It was a weekend of girl talk and margs.
We had such a blast exploring the East Side (East Side Showroom & Papi Tinos are both awesome), drinking and playing catch-up upstairs at La Condesa, driving down to The Salt Lick, visiting our fav buyer, Wendi, at Kickpleat, checking out the yoga studio slash music venue Wanderlust, eating sushi at Uchi, and did we mention drinking margaritas?
I seriously love this town and would like to relocate there for a few months.
I absolutely adore Kickpleat – Wendi Koletar’s beautifully edited store on West 12th street. I picked up these printed shorts there, which I plan on wearing in Jamaica in a few weeks:
Katie also took me to JM Drygoods, which sells Mexican caftans, blankets & jewelry from Marfa, and incredible handmade leather chairs. This is truly my kind of store with all the travel finds and beautiful printed fabrics. I could have spent hours there:
I’m so in love with this town. Can’t wait to return soon.
Marina Larroude never fails to impress with her seasonal Accessories Index on Style.com. She highlights the season’s’ best baubles — and entertains me for hours in the office (you can see my SS12 favs here) — with the insanely comprehensive guide.
Thank you to Marina for always including us,
… And some obsessions for FW12:
What a season for earrings! The Monique Pean stunners lined in diamonds are beyond. And the Lizzie Fortunato Lola Earrings (below) mark one of our first forays into semi-precious with blue lace agate & Norwegian granite:

Next: necklaces. The graphic Anndra Neen is an absolute fav (I told the sisters behind the line I was obsessed with the shapes in this column necklace), as is the diamond shell by Sara Beltran.
From our own collection? The Georgina Necklace with huge chunks of onyx and ox-blood leather is my go-to.

And such an array of bracelets for FW12; the horse from Chloe is outrageous!
Our Eames Cuff continues to be a favorite silhouette of mine — this season it’s lined with pony hair:
