Statement Jewelry

It’s winter! So save your window shopping for ‘windows’ shopping aka. online shopping!
Look what I found today and lust for! Statement jewelry goes best with monochromatic colour schemes and slinky black dresses. In the book How to Talk to Anyone, they advise you to always wear something that is a conversational piece (a What’s it). Check out the chapter titled: How to subliminally lure people to you at a gathering. Next time you go out, wear that flower on your shoulder, or those red shoes, or that gold bracelet! That way people have an ‘excuse’ to strike up a conversation with you and makes it less awkward. Also in a networking setting where most people are conservatively dress, one piece can really make you stand out. The Stylelist has something to say about statement jewelry.

Eva knows what I’m talking about!

Company of Thieves


Chi town talent!

The members of Company of Thieves are collectively grounded, and well-versed in the challenges The World faces today. “This is a scary time for a lot of people, government-wise, art-wise, and especially business-wise,” says singer Genevieve Schatz. “People seem to be very held back in what they’re willing to invest in – personally, emotionally, and financially. But at the same time, there’s a new, gutsy energy coming out right now, almost a generational thing. Today’s youth, and to some extent their parents, are really wanting a change, and there’s a feeling that we’re at the edge of big change right now. Great art always rises up when change is going on.” These exciting – if uncertain – times are reflected in the eclectic sound of Ordinary Riches, an album that moves effortlessly from the seemingly jaunty, piano-led “In Passing” and the catchy pop tones of “Pressure” to the arena-ready sing-along chorus of “New Letters” and the Jonny Greenwood-ish guitar figures on “Old Letters.” They are erudite without being pretentious, hooky without being saccharine, and plainly dedicated to its ideals, Company of Thieves’ stunning debut album Ordinary Riches reveals a band very much of its time.

“It’s true what they say about new bands, that you wait your whole life to write your first record,” says guitarist Marc Walloch. “This is the sound of us piecing together things we wanted to try out, playing different parts to see what happened.”

“We’re influenced by a lot of different artists,” Schatz adds. “Everything from jazz and Motown to Billie Holiday and the Beatles. Seeing how they expressed themselves helped us to figure out another way to express ourselves in music.

“It’s like when you read a really good novel,” she continues, “and you end up thinking like that character, or in that writer’s style.”
