A Week in Manhattan

Patrick and I traveled to New York City earlier this month, it was actually my first return trip since moving to San Francisco nearly 2 years ago. My Mother joined me during the week for a few preliminary bridal appointments, I have been scoping out a few styles online and wanted to see things in person while I was in town. We visited the bridal salons at Monique Lhuillier, Bergdorf Goodman, Spina Bride and Lee Petra Grebenau. The rest of the week was filled with old favorites like: eating at Momofuku ramen and Milk Bar, shopping in Soho, seeing the annual fashion exhibit (Heavenly Bodies) at The Metropolitan, afternoon tea at Bergdorfs, vintage shopping at What Goes Around Comes Around, cheese plates and wine at Murray's Cheese Bar, walking around Washington Square Park and brunch at Balthazar. It felt good to be back, almost like we never left! I believe the moral of the story is 2 years is too long to stay away from Manhattan, hopefully we'll make a return trip this spring.

Vintage Quilted Chanel

A quick snap of  something I glance at everyday, my daily reminder that vintage will always be in style.

Vintage Silk Scarves

2017 has been an amazing year of firsts at Sweet & Spark. Our first vintage designer jewelry collection and our first vintage scarf collection being my two favorites. The next up-and-coming collection we've been growing the past few months has been vintage designer scarves from names like Emilio Pucci, Oscar de la Renta, Liberty of London and Gucci. (PS We just picked up an Hermes peony printed scarf, coming soon!) Similar to vintage jewelry, there is so much history behind each piece. Jillian and I have also gone through a few learning curves when it comes to dating the pieces or knowing what trademarks to look for from designer to designer. My favorite new finds right now are the floral printed Gucci scarves from the 1970s through the 1980s.
