Seen here: some stellar looks from the previous seasons till now
Gearing up for autumn in New York City usually means taking out the “go to” pieces from the wardrobe, which of course, always includes Hudson jeans. When I thought of the perfect accessory to transform a simple tee and great jeans, Lizzie Fortunato — whose eponymous jewelry line — pops immediately to mind. Lizzie, the pixie haired lass in the slideshow, and her sister Kathryn, started making custom jewelry almost a decade ago, while Lizzie was still at Duke University. Now, the sisters scour the globe in search of special gems, stones, porcelain, and even lace to construct one of kind necklaces and bangles. Depending on where you buy, you can pay anywhere from $28 for a bracelet from the diffusion line at Urban Outfitters to several hundred at Bergdorf Goodman or Kirna Zabete.
The way I see it, like a perfect fitting pair of Hudson jeans, a Fortunato necklace means an investment piece, chic for all seasons. Another bonus: “fortunato” in Italian means fortunate. That’s gotta bring good luck! Click: LizzieFortunato
