The pottery-obsessed can attest to the impeccable quality and earthy yet elegant aesthetic that California-based Heath Ceramics is known for. The company has been pumping out pretty housewares since the late '40s, and we've grown accustomed to flocking to the site each season to drool over the latest goods. Celebrating the depth and vibrancy of a watery palette, the just-released Summer collection (available until Oct. 1) makes simple pleasures like a morning espresso or freshly picked bloom feel downright epic.

If you love the thrill of a good Etsy find but tire of the hunt, allow us to introduce you to our latest shopping obsession: BRIKA. Founders Kena Paranjape and Jen Lee Koss wanted to create a curated, more exclusive version that celebrated the artisans behind the products. Categories like house and home, jewelry, accessories, and little ones make navigating a breeze, while fun anecdotes, brief bios, and snapshots connect shoppers with the people behind the brands. Creating an account allows you to shop and receive updates on the latest artists (or "makers" added). Plus, discounted pricing for newly launched makers sweetens the deal. Keep reading for the BRIKA makers we're mad about and the products we're coveting for our homes.
Welcome to the new school of low-heeled heels. Here you'll find a slick range of sexy slingback kitten heels (in brocade finishes and floral prints), polished ankle-strap pumps with crystal embellishments, and classic nude iterations, too. The common denominator? Despite the "under three inches" rule, these shoes pack a just-as-cool punch. And if you're worried about not fully maximizing the leggy look (yes, we know a killer pair of sky-high stilettos does wonders for lengthening your frame), then have a little fun with it. Go for a thigh-skimming skirt instead. All the convincing you'll need to take the low-heel plunge — aside from the obvious comfort perk — is just a click, or 32, ahead.
Instead of bunny motifs and blown-egg centerpieces, we're dreaming of alternative Easter tablescape ideas that feel fresh and vibrant. One of our favorite Spring color trends — crisp white accessories trimmed with coral — brightens surrounding pastels without overwhelming, while global-inspired patterns replace florals and everyday items get a glamorous gold makeover. Keep reading to see the pieces we're setting our table with for Easter and beyond!
With just two years in the making, Soludos espadrilles have taken the Summer fashion scene by storm with its chic, laid-back attitude and affordable price points. With no design background in his past, founder Nick Brown started the brand because he couldn't find a pair of decent espadrilles in NYC without having to spend a lot of money. With a mission in mind, Brown decided to create his own budget-friendly line — prices range from $42 to $65 — of jute-soled espadrilles reminiscent of the pairs he wore as a kid during vacations in Spain. Needless to say, the brand has already garnered a huge following among the fashion set and celebrities, including Kate Bosworth, Anne Hathaway, and Jennifer Garner. Additionally, collaborations with brands like J.Crew, Opening Ceremony, and Mara Hoffman have catapulted Soludos's popularity nationwide. We sat down with the founder to hear the latest about the line, upcoming collaborations, and exciting expansion into a whole new category.

There's nothing like some sparkling eye candy to start the weekend off right. Whether you're spoken for or not, this ring roundup isn't just geared toward the wedding-aisle-bound (and hopeless romantics). It also provides a sound lineup of sparkly eye candy, fodder for those "treat yourself" moments, and more than a few aspirational pieces worth adding to your wish list. The girl who is trying to drop subtle hints will find her perfect (ring) match inside, but we've also got a feeling the girl who just loves a great statement piece will find what she's looking for too. From traditional princess-cut varieties to minimalist bands to more off-the-cuff gem-encrusted iterations, we've found rings aplenty — versatile enough to fit almost any style personality — at every price point. The prettiest, the quirkiest, and the most drop-down-on-bended-knee rings worth poring over, right this way.
Zoë Kravitz has added to her growing list of talents with today's launch of her jewelry collaboration with Swarovski Crystallized. The collection culls from Kravitz's personal travels and affinity to tribal influences, with attention paid to turquoise accents (fun fact: it's her birthstone), leaf shapes, as well as feather and crystal detailing. At last night's NYC launch party, Kravitz wore one of her collaboration pieces, and styled it with a Spring '13 Alexander Wang dress. Now click on to zoom in on her look, and more importantly, shop the complete collection here.

This season, we're taking the stress out of accessorizing by focusing on one piece. Yes, just one. Listen up: As much as we love stacked friendship bracelets (you can always save them for Coachella), we're minimizing our daily adornment process with bold cuffs. By adding just one statement piece — studded, jeweled, textural, or sleek — to your look, you emote instant, effortless chic. Try pairing a gold cuff with an all-white look, or mix up casual separates with a multicolored option. Any way you spin it, the bold cuff will have you shining all season long. It sure takes the stress out of layering, mixing, and matching your jewels, right? Shop our favorite picks for Spring below!
Entering a new product category can be a big task for any designer, but Matthew Williamson let his customers guide the design of the leather handbags he's introducing for Fall 2013.
"Listening to my clients, I know how busy they are and how much goes on day-to-day — so it was really a reaction to this,"
Williamson told Vogue UK. "I wanted to design a collection which would appeal to their lifestyle."
That collection includes five styles — two roomy totes, a drawstring bucket bag, a small crossbody bag on a chain, and a pentagon-shaped carryall — suited to do just that. The bags, which will retail from £395 to £1,300 (about $596 to $1,963 at current exchange), fuse textured grain leather and calfskin with the jacquards Williamson uses in his clothing collection.
They're set to debut in September at Williamson's store in London and at select retailers around the world. But that doesn't mean you can't ogle them here in the gallery.
