Not All That Glitters Is Gold.

Last Thursday night I hopped on down to Gastown with Dana to check out one of my favorite local lines: Broken Promises by Karen La. Although I may be deeply biased since Karen is such a lovely lady on a personal level, there is no denying the wealth of talent that she possesses. The party took place at Cavalier, a new independent jeweler located in Gastown which prides itself as a one stop shop. It even houses a repair shop and the option for custom made pieces, if it tickles your fancy.

Broken Promises collaborated with Cavalier with a seven peice, limited run capsule collection. The "In Line" collection derived inspiration from the sharp, minimal construction of MACBA, Barcelona's Museum of Contemporary Art. Launched simultaneously with an Army of Rosokz capsule collection, the pair of jewelers created a collaborative piece; a stunning sterling silver cuff which is nothing short of a showstopper. The eye-catching and sharp lines of Broken Promises are perfectly paired with the incredible (and meticulous) engraving of Army of Rokosz. I'll admit I've got some serious lust for these if only my bank account allowed for it!

I've been looking for a leather tie for so long! I should just make one, already.

Oh, I am in love with this outfit. First off a tie? A tie! And then, that clean white pairs really well with the plaid, and how doesn't love a good plaid, especially at this time of year?
