Now that I think about it, my childhood was filled with a certain mystical presence. From the Starscroll astrology machine in the movie theater lobby (remember those?!) to the constellations twinkling overhead in the science museum’s planetarium to the Ask Grandma fortune telling booth at the local five and dime, I’ve long been captivated by the idea of messages and unforeseen powers from the great beyond.
This affinity for the cosmic and magical has taken a very couture turn in many of the Fall 2015 designer collections! I have had a stellar time shopping all the new galactic garments and astrological accessories illuminating the stores this season. If you’re attracted to the shimmer of a starry night, you’ll definitely find inspiration in the celestial collections below!

When Dean and I were touring Prague in the spring, we strolled right past the famous Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square! Built in 1410 and still working! According to those all-knowing folks at Wikipedia: The clock mechanism is composed of three main components: the astronomical dial, representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky and displaying various astronomical details; “The Walk of the Apostles,” a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures—notably a figure of Death (represented by a skeleton) striking the time; and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months.
Made in NYC and feature gorgeous Swarovski® crystals.
Each bracelet is made from 12k gold plated enamel and features a cute saying on the reverse side of each charm. The Libra says She Strikes the Perfect Balance. Oh, don’t I try! *wink*
Inspired by an ancient astronomy and alchemy book that featured illustrations of the Zodiac represented as simple yet mysterious patterns of dots. The bracelet’s constellations are based on a 1900s Swiss calendar and etched with Zodiac letters on the inside. Gold or Silver Plated Brass. All Zodiac signs available.
Take your personal piece of the night sky with you. The Zodiac is the ring of constellations that the sun passes through each year reimagined in this collection of jewelry patterned after a Swiss calendar from the 1900’s. Every pendant features larger holes that represent the brightest star in the constellation and is hand stamped on the back with a 3-letter abbreviation of its corresponding sign. 20″ chain pendant 1.5″ long gold plated brass. All Zodiac signs available.

You’re gonna die. I have this. Me, she of the very fair skin! And you know what? I love it. I do! But then I never met a rainbow micro glitter I didn’t want to kiss. It’s sheer black but doesn’t look it when you put it on. It deepens the shades of lighter lipsticks; if I wear it alone it tones down the pink in my natural lip color and just gives a bit of sparkle.
Here are the product deets: “Dehydrated hyaluronic microspheres slip into the lips’ fine lines and hold the water naturally present within the skin’s surface. Like small sponges, they soak in the water and increase their volume by up to 50 times for an immediately smoother effect.”
These unbelievable necklaces made their debut in Spring 2014 and there are literally none left in the stores but what you see below. And be warned! In a couple of instances, there is only one of that Zodiac design left in stock! I struck out looking for the Libra. Sigh. Looks like it’s time to start the hunt on eBay…
