All of us here at Fragments are huge Sex & The City fans and have been eagerly anticipating opening night of Sex & The City 2 - especially since one of our designers, Rodrigo Otazu, has jewelry very prominently featured in the film. One of our girls here went to see it at 12:01 this morning - she simply couldn't wait - and arrived two hours early!

Of course she has quite a review and I am thrilled to share it with you...

Sex & The City 2 is sexy, decadent, over the top and insanely fun. Every moment is glamorous, the fashion is iconic, even the pajamas are gorgeous. The men are immaculate and it goes without saying that our favorite fiersome foursome (Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte & Miranda) is on fire. The women have never looked better. The hair, the makeup, their facial expressions and countless one liners - that only these women could get away with - are spectacular.

While there is no particular strong plot line, this movie is a girls night out in it of itself. The colors are a rainbow of fun, the settings (Abu Dhabi, which is really Morocco, and of course NYC) are breathtaking - right down to Carrie & Big's apartment. The apartment, which took a cue from our style icon Carrie, is dressed to the nines - down to the couch that they waited 14 months for.

The chemistry between the women is stronger than ever. They have such a beautiful camaraderie - moments of total distress and others of extreme excitement & happiness - they do it all so well together.

The fashion. Ahhh, the fashion. It goes beyond words. Each outfit, dress, pair of shoes - all have their own moments. The dresses flow, the jewelry is drop dead gorgeous, the shoes are sky high and there is NO such thing as "too much." If you claim to be even the least bit "fashionista" - you cannot miss this film. It will make you smile, cry, laugh hysterically - and hyperventilate over the infinite amount of shoes and designer duds that you will be seriously coveting for months, if not years after.

Oh and we forgot to mention the sheer madness and chaos that the girls cause in Abu Dhabi. Let's leave it at that. You'll simply have to see it to witness it for yourselves...

AND - if you have already seen it - drop us your comments, we're dying to know what you think.

xoxo - have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend - and make sure a visit to the movie theater is on your schedule!

Seriously Fabulous Jewels at CINER

Yesterday, two of our Fragments girls visited CINER to do a bit of shopping for our store and boy was it an exciting experience. Their jewelry is BEYOND fantastic - so fresh, new, inspiring and super chic. Endless options for layering mixed metal chains, crystals in all different sizes and of course our favorite - an ode to the military trend. Feminine details like sweet ribbon in pastels mixed with chunky chain - it was all to die for.

The girls even snapped a few shots of what is to come and I simply cannot resist showing them to you....

Amazing, isn't it? So much fun. We love CINER and can't wait to get all the goodies in our store.
Have a great weekend!

OBSESSION: Layered Chains

Hi everyone!

How have you all been? There are so many exciting things going on here at Fragments - representation of several new AMAZING designers (more to follow next week) and preparation for COUTURE in Las Vegas. We are so excited that so many of our designers are showing this year.

So as I get ready to head off to Vegas, I start to think about key pieces to pack in terms of jewelry, of course. One of the looks I am head over heels for these days, and will carry me all through Vegas - are LAYERED CHAINS. All kinds of metals, lengths, links, accents etc. - there are so many to choose from, and each of them can complete your look. Layered chains are PERFECT for daytime statement-making and ease into night for serious glam. I love them and here are just a few of my favorites from
Dana Kellin

Remember, these are just a few of my favorites. Keep in mind this is a look you can create on your own - layer on pieces that seem unexpected, but looks fabulous together. The options are endless!
Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone!

I know it's been a few days since I've blogged - we are crazed with market week, but of course - having a LOT of fun!! I assure you I will have lots of updates next week - new designer announcements and more fabulousness.

In the meantime, I'm really obsessing over these Azaara earrings. They're just so feminine and sexy - truly glamorous and an obvious statement piece. They can work for day and transition beautifully into nighttime for whatever you've got on your agenda. Cocktails. Work dinner. Dancing with your gal pals. Dinner with your love. Blind date with your potential love. Whichever it is - these earrings are a total must have to amp up your look.

Available on, we are also giving these away on Facebook once we reach 1,500 fans. SO - become our fan here, and you can enter to win!
