Shoelace Jewelry

No, I’m not kidding, and I have NEVER heard of this until I randomly came across these unique Mirit Weinstock eyelash shoe pieces on Mr. Larkin!!

So cute, right? How is it that I’ve never thought of adding a little bling to my shoes since putting a shiny penny in my Bass loafers, circa 1982?

They are also selling this piece by Vibe Harslof.

This, of course, sent me on a long, winding path through the Internet to see what else I could find. While I must say these two designers seem to have MUCH more chicness than others I saw, I did come across one other fabulous option. Kansas City Kreations sells a sporty version on her Etsy shop.

How perfect are these for your workout shoes? You can get a variety of inspirational words, or create your own saying. With the holidays right around the corner, this could be the perfect stocking stuffer for the athlete in your life.

Am I the last one on the block to know about shoelace jewelry? Do you own any? Have you seen it on the street? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Mr. Larkin: Copenhagen via San Francisco

I’m not exactly sure how I stumbled upon the website Mr. Larkin, but I’m so glad I did! It’s a well-curated site that sells women’s ready-to-wear and accessories. Turns out that it started right here in San Francisco in 2008. Their own clothing line was made locally for three years. The founder, Casey Larkin Blond, then took a little family hiatus, and re-opened the business in Copenhagen in 2013 (where she still focuses on local production).

Mr. Larkin now has a brick-and-mortar store in Copenhagen as well, which opened in August 2014. The site sells a variety of indie brands, and they all definitely have a clean, Scandinavian aesthetic. I love the distinct voice in their merchandise, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces of  fashion jewelry they are offering.
