alexis bittar cluster necklace | SIMA

A couple of days a week I work at Trocadero, a lifestyle and accessories boutique in Omaha’s Old Market. Before moving to Omaha in 2007, the owner, Alice Kim, was an editor at In Style magazine in New York City and thus has fantastic taste in shoes, handbags, jewelry and home goods. While I was an admirer of many of the brands and products she carries in her shop when I started, every day I’m there I discover a new favorite. Yesterday’s discovery was Alexis Bittar–specifically, this oxidized silver double link necklace with aquamarine, green tiger’s eye and iolite stones. I tried it on while I was wearing a white tank top and navy Banana Republic cardigan and it totally enhanced my outfit, so much so, that Alice let me wear it to a fundraising dinner that evening. Of course I had to photograph when I got home… before I reluctantly returned it to the store.
