Happy National Jewel Day 2024! This fabulous day celebrates jewels, heirloom jewelry, jewelry designers and jewelry in general. This makes today the perfect day to invest in a piece of jewelry you will cherish for a lifetime; and hopefully pass on to the next generation.

To celebrate, I want to give a shout-out to some of my favorite jewelry designers. A few of my favorites include Lois Hill Jewelry, Tiff’s Jeweldom, Kendra Scott, Sheila Falj, Swarovski, and Compass Rose Design. I am able to link to my favorite pieces below through LTK with the exception of Compass Rose Design. Please visit Compass Rose Design at CompassRoseDesign.com.

What are your favorite pieces of jewelry you would like to celebrate?

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: puff sleeve stripe top / spring pink nail polish / summer nail polish / vintage pendant (local designer!) / vegan liquid lipstick / gemstone bead bracelet (local designer!) (only $25) / yellow square toe slides / tan leather espadrilles / grey tote bag / classic black IT bag / straw tote (under $500) /

Can you believe April is almost over? Where did this month go? It really flew by!

Spring is in full swing, and we are not only shopping for the “right now,” we are looking forward to summer, and all the excitement it will bring. This summer, those of us who are vaccinated will be able to shed our masks outdoors, and attend more events and activities than last year. In addition, things are opening up for everyone; vaccine or not. We can safely travel again, and get out of our homes; which have started to feel like prisons!

I am looking forward to a beach vacation this summer, and rocking this straw tote all the time! In addition, I am looking forward to wearing outfits other than loungewear and sweats. Love that! I assume you are too?

That being said, we all need at least one fabulous handbag for the summer, square toe slides, and espadrilles to get through all the fun we have planned this summer. We need clothing too! Stay tuned! I will be covering summer clothing later this May!

The Perfect Provenance in downtown Tiburon

It’s always fun to find local shops which offer both fashionable and local products. When I learned about The Perfect Provenance in downtown Tiburon, I was thrilled to learn we had a fabulous shop right here in the Bay Area which offers exactly that!

The Perfect Provenance offers fabulous and fashionable men’s and women’s clothing. They carry amazing brands which are on trend, and also offer quality as well as good fit. In addition to clothing, The Perfect Provenance stocks cult favorite accessories such as Perrin, Vanessa Bruno, and Elena Ghisellini.

I was also amazed to see jewelry from local designers, fabulous shoes, and so many perfect pieces for the home. They stock everything from home décor to books. In addition, they also have all-time children’s favorites such as “Madeline” and “Babar.”

I was also thrilled to find amazing gifts which are not only great for the holiday season, but all year long. They have small batch olive oil and vinegar made in Italy; which as someone with Italian ancestry, I can attest is absolutely authentic and fabulous- a must-buy when you stop in the shop or place an order online!

Products with a cause are always something I fall in love with, these adorable tee’s are exactly that! Sales from the tee’s, pouches and entire “Smile Collection” directly benefit Operation Smile. Love that! There is much more information on their website here.

One thing I find amazing about The Perfect Provenance is that their entire stock is also online. If you are not local to the Tiburon area, or you aren’t ready to venture out of quarantine just yet, you can shop it all online at ThePerfectProvenance.com. Love that!

As far as safety is concerned, everyone inside The Perfect Provenance is wearing a mask; and as a customer, you will too. It’s very clean and safe; and fun! You will love browsing and shopping in-store, just as I did. It is full-scale retail therapy. Love!

I enjoyed trying on clothing in the dressing rooms. It was safe and fun to see which items from the store I wanted to leave with. I ended up snapping up a top, sweater, dress, earrings, olive oil and vinegar (of course), and a candle. I love getting a few things for myself as well as getting a jump start on my holiday gift shopping! It is a one-stop-shop!

Be sure to check out The Perfect Provenance in downtown Tiburon, and also bookmark the website for holiday shopping-and more!

Thanks for stopping by!
