Best of What's Around

Catherine Nicole, a well-traveled jewelry designer, has 20/20 vision when it comes to selecting global garb.

As gals who like to collect stamps on their passports, we've all fallen prey to the of-the-moment purchase. Sure, that serape looked great on you in Mexico, but in Austin it makes as much sense as long-sleeves at ACL Fest. You can definitely have your cultural cake and eat it too -- it just takes the right eye. Catherine Nicole, a well-traveled jewelry designer based in Austin, has 20/20 vision when it comes to selecting global garb.

Her custom jewelry line, which includes a delicate balance of semi-precious stones, 14-carat gold and sterling silver pieces, have been carefully selected from all around the world. From embellishing earlobes to adorning wrists, this world-traveler knows the difference between fad and fab.

Next time you're racking up frequent flier miles, don't be deceived by purchases like Danish wooden clogs - no matter how you look at it, they just won't go with your skinny jeans.

Currently carried in Bows + Arrows, Sanctuary, Capra and Cavelli, Unbridaled, Alexia Gavela, and Beyond Tradition.
