This weekend I enjoyed the last days of summer on the beaches of Maine. It’s time to store the rope bracelets and all things anchor for next season. I’m looking forward to bringing out a sterling silver perfume amulet I received when I was 13. While these protective charms aren’t too common, there are some great new ones around from Free People and Talon, and vintage versions like this YSL charmer. Don’t forget to try the other spelling, “amulette,” when you start your search.
Wouldn’t one pair fabulously with a long-sleeve crepe gown like this Stella?
