The Statement Piece:
A crystal collar
A dramatic necklace such as this has the power to transform even the most simple of dresses. Though the crystal detail nods to ’20s art deco, the bold, asymmetric shape feels immediately modern. Wear with a silk slip and a low-slung chignon after dark.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
The Goldfinch is Tartt’s long-awaited third novel, promising hours of liquid prose and her most enthralling character to date. Equal, many feel, to her triumphant The Secret History, it is a doorstopper, but an utterly compelling dark tale of human frailty. The Goldfinch (Little, Brown)credits
