There is no better way to wear your mint right than Summer time. When it’s hot outside, it is time to stay cool and fresh. One of the tricks is to have mint wrapped around your skin!

My final coverage of the showcase would be about Tulola Jewelry. I was lucky to have a chance to chat with the designer herself, Ms. Sri Luce Rusna (third from the left). Looking from the uniqueness, softness and elegance of the jewelry, you will know instantly how talented, passionate and inspired this young lady is when it comes to art and glam.
Tulola jewelry was created approximately 6 years ago, the same year as the birth of Ms. Luce’s daughter. In fact, that’s where she got the name from — PuTu Lola, I thought it was really sweet and not to mention cute! I also got a chance to meet the little girl at the showcase and she was such a doll.
Based in Bali, all jewelry in Tulola are meticulously hand-made using simple yet powerful tools. So you can imagine how amazing the details are, and how careful yet gentle each finger is when crafting the jewels before transforming them into such perfection.
Earrings are my least favorite jewelry. However, when I see this new pair from Dolce & Gabbana, I must say that I totally approve! I have a soft spot for cameo style and since this Fall/Winter 2012 is full of cameos, I just need to include this set to my finding. Made out of gold plated brass with glass pearls, they are hand-painted into such perfection, leaving you nothing but a sense of awe. Wear them for your formal or non-formal events and let all eyes be on you! US$695.
Some of you might not be too familiar with bibs, but let me tell you how amazing they are. Not only do they save you from accessory malfunction, they also make good shirt decor. Like this particular one from Marni. It changes your plain tees into something more fashionable and elegant, just like that. Although you might need to invest more on this certain accessory but trust me, it’s worth it. This lovely new bib from Marni has caught my eye the moment I saw it. I can just imagine how gorgeous it would be on top of dark/pale colored shirts. It is a chic contrast between white glossed cotton blend Macrame with beautiful pink crystals, clear and white resin beads. For being so gorgeous and delicate, this bib deserves to be on our spotlight this week! US$590.
