It is absolutely no secret that John is the love of my life. I am engaged to him, after all. But next in line would be model, Abbey Lee Kershaw. Bahahahahaha. I think she is one of the most beautiful, lithe, elegant, alluring and enigmatic little creatures roaming this planet. She just oozes a magical and mysterious aura that is such a rarity in the model industry. I cannot get enough of her. I sort of separate my love for models into two sections; there are my obscure up-and-comers of whom you will see plenty of spotlights, and then there are the ones that have finally hit it big. Among those, I have only had a few real loves: Gemma Ward, Sasha Pivovarova, Natalia Vodianova and Daria Werbowy. These four women have been worn slam out with campaign after campaign, yet I never get tired of their timeless features and effortless ability to bring a photo to life. However, newcomers, Karlie Kloss and Chanel Iman are overly promoted in my opinion, and don't stand the test of longevity. For about the last year and half, Abbey Lee Kershaw has been the reigning model queen for me.
Onto our item of the day, ManiaMania Immortals Rings. This jewelry line debuted exactly one year ago this month. The geniuses behind the line, Australian stylist Tamila Purvis and art director Melanie Kamsler, combined their backgrounds in fashion and graphic design. Hmmm, sounds like John and me. ;) Enticing. These two really are a killer team, though. The entire concept of the line was inspired by John Lennon and Yoko Ono's film, "The Holy Mountain". For those of you who haven't seen it, the movie was a tale about a quest for cosmic enlightenment. I'm sold. Mix up some John Lennon/Yoko Ono inspiration, bohemian rock, elfin lore, crystals, molded bronze and silver metals together, and I am all about it. To top it all off, they had Abbey model the entire line. I mean, this whole collection screams me?!
Well, my weekend starts now and lasts through next Sunday. So I suppose I'm on more of a local LA vacation! I'm road tripping an hour north up to Ojai tonight with John, my sister and brother in law. Yay! Love my west coast weekend getaways. Ok, without further ado... I present to you, MANIA MANIA Immortals Ring!
Bronze/Amazonite, $320. For those of you who followed me on I Live For It, you know that I wear a ring on about every single finger. It's pretty much always one of two things, bronze or emerald. This ring murders me. Must. Have. Now. That light colored amazonite stone would look nauseous next to all of my Grandmother's old emerald and opal cocktail rings from the 1920's that I wear. Gorgeous.
Silver/Aquamarine (recently restocked) it had been sold out forever! $400.
Brass/Quartz, $300. This one is not even available yet! Coming soon! This gemstone is so versatile and could be dressed up or down. Love love love.
Silver/Smokey Quartz, $400. For my silver lovers. This piece is a perfect everyday ring to edge up any outfit. I mean... enough said.
Streetstyle pics of our girl rockin' the Immortals Ring. She never takes it off!
My favorite shot. That cheekbone. Man oh man.
Of course she would load on the YSL Arty Oval Ring in Coral... naturally.
Disgusting. I want every single one. This photos makes me ill. Apart from the Immortal, I love her huge red stone.
Hello jaw line. I envy you. Oh, and the gilded rib cage sweater, could we all die for that?
She clearly prefers to apply her own mascara at shows since there are hundreds of pics like this. Ha!
Love how she wears the hell out of these shades. They suit her.
In love with how candid this shot is. Look at that little face. Love how her thumb is subconsciously touching her lip. Beautiful photograph.
The cup, the dark lighting, how messed up her hair is, the way the edges of her fur jacket blend into the shadows on the left. I am so enthralled by this photograph. I can't deal with it. Inspired to go shoot photographs now.
Check out their site, MANIAMANIA.
I had to just focus on one piece, otherwise I would have posted their entire collection!
