In this week’s Win It and Wear It contest, we feature a stylish, charming necklace from Stripe, a Downtown Santa Cruz retailer on Walnut Street. Dangling from a gold chain are three enticing charms—a bird to remind you to take flight, a gem because you’re worth it, and a dagger, for, well, getting to the heart of things. To enter the contest, leave a comment at this Stripe necklace blog and tell us about something in beauty or fashion that you’re obsessed with. The contest ends Oct. 19 and the winner will be announced on Oct. 20.
Stripe, a romantic, vintage-inspired store, sells gifts, clothing, jewelry and more. We just swung by the store and here are a few of our current obsessions (in addition to this lovely necklace): fingerless gloves by local company, Nuala; infinity scarves from Made by Lex; a slew of candles by Lucia; several to die for blouses from Dear Creatures; leather cuffs with a broach from Nuala; and enticing, creative, inspiring journals hand-made by the staff at Stripe. Take a look. Stripe, 107 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, 421-9252, stripedesigngroup.com.
