Palm Beach Style: House of Lavande

house of lavande

This morning, I am headed to Palm Beach for a very brief trip. Yesterday, I touched on the topic of Palm Beach-inspired interiors. The more I ponder this stylish town’s aesthetic, the more I think of fabulous accessories and no one knows Palm Beach jewelry like House of Lavande. Founded by jewelry connoisseur, Tracy Smith five years ago, House of Lavande has a beautifully-curated collection of vintage baubles. Tracy’s passion for fabulous costume jewelry has lead her to comb through flea markets from London to Paris and estate sales from Beverly Hills to Palm Beach and everywhere in between. Each piece is more fabulous than the last and I am really hoping to have time in the next two days to pop over to see the amazing collection for myself!

{How Chic is this look? Every detail is gorgeous and I am in love with that tassel necklace. The overall look is very Rachel Zoe, n’est ce pas?}

Having spent a lot of time in Palm Beach, esepcially throughout my childhood, I couldn't agree more that fabulous accessories really are the key to the Palm Beach look.

Have a drink at the Tapestry Bar for me ;)

You should go grab lunch at Taboo on Worth Avenue or a meal at Rocco's Tacos on Clematis (downtown west palm, right over the bridge from Palm Beach).

Hi P!
Please do a spread on pools. We start building in a few weeks and I want a resort like feel in the backyard. The perfect Staycation...but done up right...much like you Palm Beach Style. Lovely and Comfortable...but with a Fashion edge. Something that makes you want to Stay instead of flying all the way to Hawaii...There are really no great websites that show Great Outdoor Decor ideas in high fashion style....Thanks so much.

Last time I was in Palm Beach I couldn't make it to House of Lavande, so I am hoping to make it there next time I go in early May! I actually have a necklace from their shop on my blog today here: http://travelmoonblog.blogspot.com
