Cuffs & Collars

One of our very favorite finds this season were the cuffs and collars from Catherine Osti. These are chic, unique and perfectly Parisienne. Add to collarless sweaters, have them peek out of a simple top . . . these accessories are such an interesting alternative to necklaces and bracelets!
