I am a California girl, through and through. I have dabbled in other states now and then but having been born and raised (and now raising my own children) has solidified the fact that this place will always be home, no matter where I end up. There is something about the idea of home that speaks to our innate ability to communicate with one another. We feel kinship with others who hail from the same land we do and we identify certain aspects of ourselves as being particularly geographic in nature. Style is one of these things.
There are artists I tend to gravitate toward simply because their work makes me feel like I am home. It is no coincidence that Nita Blum from Golden Plume utilizes natural materials and focuses her aesthetic on her beachside surroundings on the coast of Southern California. If you want to know what “California Living” feels like, try donning a piece from Blum’s collection. You will swear you can taste the salt water on your lips and your skin will shimmer. This Turquoise and Bronze Feather Necklace is a personal favorite. And the Rosewood Chain Headpiece? This is pure California love, my friends.
