I have an obsession with muted-pink accessories; I think they’re versatile enough for any occasion and can be matched effortlessly with many outfits. That’s why this pair of Roger Vivier Strass Mary Janes (THB 50,000) had me crushing hard at first blush. Casual yet eye-catching, the preppy-style shoes are gracefully crafted in plush velvet and crowned with the brand’s iconic crystal buckle. Not to mention, the gold heels also elevate the look with a luxurious touch, making them appropriate for glamourous receptions, too. – Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer
It’s no secret the colour green is enjoying the spotlight this season, from emerald-encrusted jewellery to green marble home decór. Yet, I’m amazed by how Mulberry is rocking the trend in a newly chic way, featuring not only the lush hue, but also a glittery hint in its latest bag design. Drawing influences from a British countryside, Small Amberley Satchel (THB 49,000) is also as stylish as it is practical, boasting a timeless satchel silhouette with a detachable strap. Its sparkly, minty effect turn heads when you enter any room. – CO
Have you checked out Pandora’s new Shine Collection yet? It’s a sweet one. Drawing from a honeybee theme, I love the playfulness of this 18K gold-plated Honeycomb Lace Ring (THB 6650), combining a lace-like design with 100 clear cubic zirconia stones that kind of look like drops of honey. It’s a ring that looks regal and strong, yet still boasts a buzzing charm about it. Definitely the kind of accessory that will always make you feel like the Queen Bee in the room. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
I’m a born magpie for vintage kitchenware. However you feel about your beloved jewellery case is probably exactly how I feel about this MacKenzie-Childs’ Courtly Check Recipe Box (THB 3,436). Heavy-gauge steel, glazed and painted in black and white Courtly Check, this recipe box is a whimsical piece that helps add sophistication to any kitchen countertop. It is also a great utensil to help me out on any dinner night when my mind goes blank and asks “what’s for dinner”? Moreover, containing hundreds of hand-written, well-guarded recipes passed down from my family, this kitchenware is not too different from a keepsake box – Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer.
Whenever I pack for a vacation, I always run into the dilemma of trying to get all my beauty essentials in one small cosmetics bag. But that was before I found this all-inclusive Laura Mercier Essentials Eye & Cheek Palette (THB 2,450), which features a great range of makeup components for perfecting my eyes, cheeks and brows, all in one set. Putting me at ease, the compact-sized palette can be easily slipped into my purse, and with its big mirror, it ensures a glam look whenever I’m on the go. – CO
