Accessory Crack - Alexis Bittar

One of my favorite past times is wandering different neighbs in NYC on Sunday afternoons. Yesterday was no exception and not even my aching feet (from Saturday night’s bondage heels) could keep me indoors! While strolling the beautiful West Village, I came upon an Alexis Bittar boutique. This was a complete surprise as I thought her only store in the city was in Soho (and I try to avoid it at all costs....debt card danger!) Well, slipping inside couldn’t be helped and what a grown-up-candy-store it is! A crack den for accessory crack-heads...and my fingers, neck, ears and wrist were just SO bare...

The place is dripping in amazing jeweled lucite creations. Alexis’ designs were HUGE in the 80’s and have made the perfect transition to now-chic. Perfect for when you want that balance of a trendy accessory that isn’t a neon plastic bangle from Top Shop. If you aren’t able to make it to one of her Manhattan locations, she has a very extensive
website and Nordstrom carries much of her line. Below are a few of my faves, and that big pink neon thing? THAT is a cuff and I'm in love:

Always happy to be your enabler :)
