Virginia is for Lovers

*Please note that any KISMET items that are purchased from December 23rd - January 1st will not be shipped out until January 2nd as our offices will be closed due to the holiday. 

I am greatly looking forward to taking a long break back to my hometown of Virginia to spend time with my family. Here are some great themed items from Etsy. I think I would have to agree completely, Virginia is for Lovers <3

A Very She & Him Christmas

I am loving Zoey Dechanel more and more with every New Girl episode I watch and now she just has me completely hooked with her new Christmas album with Matthew Ward called A Very She & Him Christmas. Here's one of my favorites from the album. I tend to be very festive for any holiday and Christmas time is no exception. I have been playing Bing Crosby and other Holiday classics all week but this album is such a great option to mix it up. No doubt that A Very She & Him Christmas will be playing on repeat all day today! Happy holidays to all :)

Give a Gift to Mother Nature

Choose to wrap your gifts this year with recycled magazine pages or old newspapers instead of buying wrapping paper this year. Not only will you save some cash and save some trees, but its a unique and creative way to present a gift for someone. Play around with the placement of the image to keep the presentation interesting. Heres some photos of Christmas gifts I will be handing out soon!

KISMET Hearts Karlie Kloss

I have to admit, when I first saw supermodel Karlie Kloss enter the fashion world I wondered what everyone saw in her. In the past 4 or 5 years, it was impossible to watch a show at fashion week or flip through W or Vogue without seeing her grace MANY pages or MANY a runway. But at the time I just didn't get what so many designers saw in what I thought was her "atypical" supermodel beauty. That is, I thought so until I started seeing more of her in interviews. She appears even more gorgeous in person than she does on print, but more importantly, her personality makes her even more charming. What I admire about Karlie is that although she has the fashion world at her feet, she apppears very down to earth and humble. No diva attitude here. She's full of confidence without being narcissistic and I've read in her interviews that she would like to be a doctor one day after she finishes modeling. Love that this girl has beauty as well as brains! So now, go figure, I am loving me some Karlie Kloss! In fact, she is currently one of my favorite supermodels that I love to see. Over time I have learned how truly versatile and captivating her look can be so its no wonder that many designers choose her to represent their work. I think she is extremely beautiful and has a body sculpted more perfect than Michelangelo's. I imagine her to be the Giselle, Kate, or Erin Wasson of her generation. And get this, she is only 19! Karlie, keep taking over the world girl!

Some other images inspired by this beautiful and unexpected match up of colors. Who knew that these three colors could be combined in such harmony?

Dare yourself to put together a great ensemble of three different bold colors. Send us a photo in your outfit and we will post your pic on our blog for taking on the challenge! If you will, I will :)

Wooly Mammoth Ivory

"Cute necklace Sheila, what is it? Bone?" "No, its actually Mammoth."

Yes, giving this answer might cause someone to think you've gone off the edge but if you purchased your necklace at Occulter, than you could very well be wearing a necklace made out of Wooly Mammoth Ivory! Seriously! Isn't that the coolest thing you've ever heard? And almost unbelievable that a jewelry retailer could get their hands on them? Granted you really do get what you pay for. Example, take this Yiksa Breastplate for $9,300.00. Still, I would think that Wooly Mammoth Ivory would cost something like, oh I don't know, priceless? I imagine the limited remains of this grandiose, extinct mammal to be locked away inside a glass counter in a museum rather than being sported by a shirtless model in sneakers.  

Because of their massive size and the fact that they roamed lands of freezing temperature, snow, and glaciers, Wooly Mammoth remains were "preserved in an organic state" rather than being fossilized. Wooly Mammoth ivory is comparable to ivory that we are more accustomed to seeing such as ivory from elephant tusks. How great would it be to be able to wear a piece of history made from an extinct beast, one so grandiose and colossal in size? If anything what a great conversation starter.
