From Chaos to Calm. Kate Lagos and mom — Ann King making her college home in Providence, RI organized and cozy for the year to come.
As I send my daughter, Kate, off to college to begin her junior year, I realize that I too, am ready for a change in my routine. The coming of autumn is truly invigorating and all about CHANGE!!
Change can be unsettling, but when it comes to fashion, it magically gives us a new found confidence and utter excitement about what’s next. I can’t wait to put on a soft, warm new sweater in any of the colors that are trending this season!
How can you not “fall” in love with this delicious mix of colors? According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, “by playing to consumers’ practical side with versatile neutrals, and boosting their confidence with bold, spirited hues, this skillfully balanced palette has something for everyone.”

Every fall has a distinct new feeling in fashion—some leave you breathless in their beauty while others tend to feel like something you wore in your teens. That being said, Fall 2012 is just stunning with the richest colors and lushest fabrics. Everything feels worthy of Queen Elizabeth’s (the first one) royal wardrobe. And I say, there’s never been a better season to CHANGE your wardrobe and add a dollop of decadence! My Passion Pattern Fleur Gemstone bracelet (J272461) — available in both gorgeous Green Agate and the most sumptuous Red Carnelian — are styled seamlessly in keeping with all of the swoon-worthy Baroque-inspired fashions that you will be seeing everywhere this season.
Ann King Sterling Fleur Passion Pattern Gemstone Bracelets in Red Carnelian and Green Agate (J272461)
This bracelet (J272461) is truly beautiful as a stand alone wrist statement — six amazing faceted gemstones, cut meticulously and bursting with rich jeweled color are bridged by Ann King Passion patterned links. The Red Carnelian alongside 18K rose gold tone is an in the moment “MUST HAVE,” whereas the tranquil yet powerful Green Agate paired with 18K green gold tone just drips with a royal presence. I plan on wearing these with an armful of the Passion Pattern Gemstone Bangles (pictured below) for a glamorous and fun layered look this fall!
Ann King Sterling Passion Pattern Gemstone Bangles in London Blue Topaz and Red Madeira Citrine (J272458)
For a more delicate accent (I love contrast), I designed the Passion Pattern Gemstone to give you a slim bangle option that can truly be worn alone! Each bangle is adorned with two beautifully cut gemstones that glint and sparkle as they move around your wrist. Red Madeira Citrine plays warmly along 18K rose gold tone as the London Blue Topaz version sits cool and sophisticated with oxidized sterling silver.
I can’t wait for you to see these new silhouettes in all the gorgeous color ways on the Q with my host, Antonella Nestor. Please join us on Thursday, September 6th, from 10AM until noon. I absolutely love working with her! I know you’ll find Antonella’s energy along with my fabulous new styles the perfect beginning to an invigorating fall season full of excitement and CHANGE.
