I love this rhythm and blues album!! My favorite is track 3. What music puts you in a good mood?
Inspired by the red carpet trends at this year’s Oscars here are some of the best red, white, and black jewels all available at Fragments SoHo. Please call our store to inquire about pricing & availability, 212-334-9588.
Reds that sparkle and will take any look to the next level….
White jewels that are totally timeless…
Blacks that pop and are forever chic…
All of us have been busy chatting about Sunday night’s red carpet beauties like Jessica Chastain, Natalie Portman and the like but what we haven’t yet discussed are the show stopping looks from all of the after parties! Check out some of our faves…
What are your favorite looks from the after parties?
It was more an evening of the dress than the jewel and the designers were amazing: Marchesa, Gucci, Armani, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and others who did not let us down. Nevertheless, I believe a woman is not dressed to her fullest potential without the best accessories to highlight her style, differentiate and punctuate her look. The jewelry is what tells so much about ones personality. There wasn’t too much risk on this year’s red carpet in terms of jewelry so we must applaud Busy Phillips for her major earring choice – Irene Neuwirth boulder opal and diamond earrings. SHOW STOPPING!!
Gwyneth needs earrings! Stark and stunning in white Tom Ford. Striking cuff and ring but a bit more sparkle at the face would be the icing on the cake! Safe or daring, it depends how you want to look at it.
Angelina Jolie, a rich and original combination of Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, and herself. She’s imaginative, distinctive, sexy, dangerous, and knows how to work it all (especially the leg!) Mark your position and take your stand. You go girl!
Michelle Williams perfectly simple in bright coral Louis Vuitton gown. A classy knock out with her simple diamond graduated line necklace set in oxidized gold for a touch of vintage. A diamond bow pin at the waist.
George Clooney always dapper and his girlfriend Stacy dressed beautifully in shiny gold lame by Marchesa. Clooney takes home the Oscar no matter what! He predicted “The Artist” will take home the “real” Oscar and he was right!
To a wonderful evening celebrating the exquisite talent in Hollywood, I loved it all and I can’t wait for next year!
What a weekend at the Wynwood Walls! Sharing some more snapshots with you….
I’ll be back with more!

More to come! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
I remember it was the fall of 1980 when Tony and I opened the Greene St. Cafe ( the first of many restaurants.) It was less than a year old and already the toast of the town in SoHo. Cissy Houston, even then a renowned Gospel singer, was backed up by 3 musicians and a single back up singer. That back up singer was Whitney Houston, her 16 year old beautiful daughter – a, tall, thin, gorgeous unassuming, innocent young lady. Cissy introduced her daughter Whitney, who then sang a solo accapella. After the first phrase, the room went silent, everyone knowing they were experiencing a moment of greatness. You could hear a pin drop and she was perfect. Never again have I heard such a perfect song or special moment. A star has moved to heaven. may she rest in peace.
Here is Tony last night speaking to a live audience at the Wynwood Walls on radio show “Myra,” a local personality. Tony is speaking about art, community building and the importance of street art on Modern Culture. Art has been part of our DNA from the beginning!
Today, we await the opening of Art Wynwood, the first annual art exposition, other than Art Basel. We are very excited!! There is a VIP opening tonight and it will be open to the public starting Sunday. There will be 60 exhibitors from the East coast to Europe. More later!
We love the new NBC series SMASH! Any TV show with a strong focus on Broadway, fabulous dancing and music has us drawn instantly – but this one is a total home run. We can’t get enough of it and we’re so excited for the third episode…
Check out Angelica Houston in “The Callback” episode wearing a Deanna Hamro oxidized sterling silver & stick pearl necklace from Fragments!
You can expect to see lots of our other designers featured on the show as well, including Miguel Ases, David Urso, Dana Kellin, Coralia Leets, Chan Luu & DLine! If you’re interested in the piece featured here, please feel free to call our store at 212.334.9588 for more information!
Music’s biggest night turned out to be just that; it was the perfect Sunday evening watching generations of amazing talent come together – I love the Grammy’s and here are some of my thoughts:
Alicia Keys V gold neck piece was fierce and against the chic black dress coupled with her KILLER voice, she always makes quite the statement.
Kimberly from the Band Perry wore a three dove necklace from our new Turkish designer, Kismet by Milka. It’s small and delicate but makes a big impression especially when worn as a layering piece a la Fragments style!
Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood were a sensational collaboration. She looked so amazing – her bracelets worked perfectly with the glittery dress. Very together & cool. She was glam and a real midnight star – so right for the occasion.
Like Jennifer said, we will always love you, Whitney.
In the end the love you take is equal to the love you make!
