So this Friday Favorite deserves its own entry. Last Sunday before we had our nearly-dying-in-a-tornado-hurricane-weather-phenomena adventure, Nilda and I were wandering around the SOWA Open Market, checking out some of the vintage things. Needless to say, Nilda emerged with an incredible find.

Her cuff is a Kenneth Lane, and it's dated around 1973 from a collection he did exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue. There's even a special signature inside the bracelet for the collection. And yes, it's that Kenneth Lane. The very Kenneth Lane that designed pieces for the likes of Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn - his pieces can be found in the Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian. His Saks collection, however, was such an instant success that they sold its entire initial inventory in a day. Fun facts? Lane started out as a shoe designer for Delman and Christian Dior and his love of jewelry started as something he did in is free time. Beautiful, huh?
