Surprisingly after over seven years of living in Los Angeles this was my first visit to the Venice Canals. It couldn’t be more picturesque…the perfectly manicured shrubbery framing the eclectic and colorful homes, the miniature paddle boats and canoes, and the gorgeous arched bridges that rise over the canals about each quarter mile. With groups of tourists walking through by the dozens, privacy sure can’t be your main concern if you choose to live here. But wow, that’s definitely something I would consider sacrificing to live in a canal front home. The November colors of the canals couldn’t be more fitting and romantic for this Pachamama Bohemian shawl and Duke of Jahan body chain.
Draping perfectly in the front and back, this body chain layers so gorgeously over simple black. I love the texture it gives over a clothing item and how it’s such a unique alternative to necklaces. There’s nothing sexier than a strappy back, especially mixed with draping jewels.
I feel like a true gypsy queen in this shawl. Handmade so meticulously, each piece of fabric that makes up this gorgeous oversize wrap feels like it has a story to tell. Covered with hand embroidery, miniature mirrors, and every possible color imaginable, I don’t think it can get any more bohemian than this!
