A Family Affair

Yesterday my Mom came to town and my sister and I spent the day with her! All of us being in the same place at the same time is a very rare occasion these days, so we were all really thankful for the quality time. We went to brunch at AOC Bistro in Park Slope first..
Mom wearing Micheal Kors bag, tunic and turquoise & tiger's eye bracelet from Williamsburg street fair, Fendi shades

My sister, Sakira's wearing a Balenciaga moto bag, consignment shop shoes and Abercrombie and Fitch shorts

Manicures and pedicures!

I love these boots! I've wanted a pair for a while now, but seeing them on her all day is tipping me over the edge..
Zara shorts, Jessica Simpson sandals

After we got mani pedis we went to Brooklyn Charm in Williamsburg- by far the coolest place I've been to in a WHILE. We all made our own charm necklaces that have really significant meanings to us. It makes wearing jewelry so much more personal and meaningful. I think I'm going to start to look for the deep, personal parts of my apparel expression from now on and not focus on the the aesthetic appeal as much..but that's a train on a different track..

They also had a lot of pre made jewelry that was adorable and spectacular

Mom bought this one

Sakira and I designed the following necklaces
Charms on Sakira's necklace from left- anchor, pink flower, heart shaped key, crystal, rectangular whistle, chanis and skull
Charms on my necklace from left (some aren't visible in this picture)- spur, heart, crystal, rectangular whistle (functional!), wings, S heart, skull, draping chains

We had a really great day.. I hope you had a wonderful Sunday too!
