The other day I came to the realization that my favorite jewelry seems to come from unexpected visits to street vendors. Years ago I found my flower ring at a little table set up in a parking lot at the edge of the town of Woodstock. I've worn it just about every day since, the last three or four years. 

A few weeks ago, after wandering out of Billy's (yes, the cupcake shop, again) we happened upon a street fair on W 21st. Since finding my ring, I have made a habit out of checking the jewelry tables for something equally as special. That's when I spotted this dainty little mint triangle ring by Virginie Millefiori. I immediately loved it but instead of buying it right then and there, I took her card and decided to think about it. From the moment we left I couldn't stop and e-mailed Virginie later that day to see if she would be doing any more fairs in the coming weeks. The next one wouldn't be until the end of the month so I waited and we went to Artists and Fleas in Williamsburg to find her and the little ring last weekend. I've barely taken it off, as if evident by the fact that it doesn't really match my red and white striped shorts, or nail polish. 

As you can see, my patriotic kick continues. Is anyone else this excited for tomorrow?

  9. I totally understand what you mean about finding things with small vendors. It's because they're totally one of a kind, you know? Plus, I'm a sucker for rings too! Yours is so cute. Glad you were able to get it.
