Obsessing Over...

OH MY! Chanel's 2014 Spring/Summer line of gigantic oversized pearl necklaces and bracelets has me swooning! I must have one, but the price tag is pretty high.

If you wish, you can find inexpensive Chanel-inspired styles on Etsy, below...

Why Collectors Love Hotel Silver

Have you ever wondered why people amass huge collections of hotel silver? How hotel silver got started? Why some pieces of silver are more desirable than others? What's hot and what's not?

Thanks to Terry Trucco at Overnight New York and her curiosity, we have some answers. Recently Terry interviewed yours truly and Mark Young, the director of the Hotel Industry Archives at the University of Houston, and did a lovely piece about collecting hotel silver. Thanks Terry!
