Annually at Christmastime in Strasbourg, France, a sleepy city on the border of Germany, a row of Baccarat chandeliers are suspended above Rue des Hallebardes. The tradition is called "Les Fastes de la Lumière," meaning "The Glories of the Light." Each luminary is encased in a transparent cage, so it is protected but its elegant glow is not diminished. It's a stunning, unforgettable sight, and a must-see if you ever find yourself there.
Not too long ago, Ashley Olsen was channeling Buffy with a bold cross necklace. Religious beliefs aside, crosses have a way of looking cool, in that gothic, badass sort of way. I am still on the prowl for a Fabworthy gothic cross, maybe this Fall I will score the perfect one. The chosen one to ward off all evil.
