Last night's Oscars had some gorgeous accessories moments, and we're jonesing to get our hands on the stars' sparkling red-carpet earrings. Busy Philipps wore Irene Neuwirth earrings, and we found a smaller, less expensive (but still an investment) version. Reese Witherspoon wore Neil Lane emeralds, and we found these for under $100. Tassel earrings are a must thanks to Natalie Portman rocking a pair from Tiffany's; for Spring we like this version in turquoise. Finally, Gwyneth's Louis Vuitton multicolor seahorse earrings were so fun, we need a pair for ourselves, in the form of these peacocks ($48). Click to shop!

Spotted on Etsy, this Starship USS Enterprise inspired necklace ($15) would make the perfect gift for your favorite Trekkie. It's super affordable and lets the wearer express her fandom without having to put on a pair of Vulcan ears.
I love the obvious handmade care that went into the silhouette design, and its simple look means that you can pretty much wear it with anything. How are you feeling about this necklace — totally geeky or geek chic?
Montreal-based Bruxe Design has created a line of pendants inspired by iconic midcentury modern chairs, such as Eero Saarinen's Tulip Chair and Charles and Ray Eames's DCW chair.

Confession: I am a huge font nerd. And like most vintage geek collectors, I am always on the hunt for old timey tech. While I have a pretty decent collection of vintage typewriters, I knew the only way to pay proper respect to my passion for typography was to learn letterpress printing.
After taking months of workshops and making my own set of unique greeting cards, I finally felt like I conquered the massive machines and their rows of movable type. As a thank-you, my guy surprised me with a beautiful letterpress necklace ($75) I'd been coveting from Brooklyn-based jewelry designer, Erica Weiner.
Font nerds, get excited! The necklace is an actual piece of movable type from a hand-cranked Vandercook Proof Press. The type was saved from being melted down, plated in gold, and hung from a brass chain. You can order a single letter of the alphabet or go the route of my guy, and get two initials for you and your beau. If you're not big into gold, don't worry — silver is an option too.
There's been a lot of necklace talk in the fashionsphere so I say, why wait for Fall, jump on the fun trend now. I love long necklaces for a variety of reasons: they're sophisticated, fun, and can be worn multiple ways. Take this 1950s extra-long necklace ($39) with goldtone chain and white glass beads. Drape it over anything and it adds instant glamour. Or, wrap it around multiple times for a dense choker. Gold and white never looked so fresh.
This Forever 21 Recycle Necklace ($9), is rather cute and Earth Day conscious. It's a perfect way to look fashionably aware and lets everyone know you're down with Mother Earth. Do you think it's cool to sport the recycling symbol or is it kinda ugly?
Ever since I lost a few costume jewelry necklaces during my move (tear), I've been itching to replace them with equally stunning finds. Lee Angel's 'Astrid' Woven Pendant Necklace ($81, originally $135) appeals to me because of its regal colors. It could dazzle any simple white tank in a nanosecond!
With all of the craziness of New York Fashion Week, it's easy to overlook all of the great things about New York City. Of course there are the landmarks, the fashion, and the food, but who can forget the top notch entertainment? As such, I'm going to carve out some time to see a Broadway show.
I'll start you off with this Banana Republic Bib Necklace ($58) because it can jazz up any outfit, and the color is perfect for February. Come back and tell me when your Fab Finds are up, or just tag your Fab Finds with Broadway Baby.

Three months into nursing, my daughter decided to go on a nursing strike. When the baby rejects the breast for anywhere between two days to three weeks, it's typically called a nursing strike. And, unfortunately, bottle-fed babies aren't immune to strikes.
My lil one decided to go for a record breaker and tortured me for close to three weeks. It was a nightmare. She wouldn't take a bottle, sippy cup or a regular cup. I even resorted to a medicine dropper, which was not fun or effective.
Before I lost my sanity, I went to visit a lactation consultant. She thought it was evident that my babe was too interested in the world around her to take time to eat. So she gave me some advice — to wear a big colorful necklace so my baby had something to focus on and play with instead of just boring old me. Thankfully, the tip worked and my lil angel returned.
