Summer dressing can be almost too easy. Cute dress + cute sandals = done. If you actually like to layer, it can get boring fast, which is why accessories take a step closer to the spotlight during the season. If you're in the market for some new jewelry, Mabel & Zora is hosting a trunk show tomorrow from 1-5 pm featuring Bella & Loki's entire line of pieces made from reclaimed jewelry, crystals, and... feathers.

[Okay, I gotta stop the regularly scheduled programming for a moment and say that I'm beyond ready for the feather trend to die. I don't think most people who wear them realize that most of the birds are killed to harvest their feathers, and are being killed en masse to meet the suddenly skyrocketing demand. I know for a long time I figured they were just collected after drifting harmlessly to a barn floor or collected from the forest or something. Sure, some jewelry artists do and have used feathers they acquired in just such a manner, but that's the exception, not the rule. Just thought you should know. You should still totally go to this trunk show, which also has a raffle where you can win a one-of-a-kind!-Ed.]
