It’s been quite a couple weeks here in Houston. Our hearts go out to each and every person who has been affected by this terrible disaster. It’s really been devastating to see what has gone on in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, but on the bright side, Houstonians (and many from afar) are coming together and building this city back up, and that has been a nice thing to see. We are Houston strong.
And today, in the spirit of Houston, we are bringing you a Houston-based style setter, Chiara Casiraghi. Chiara is an editor at La Palme Magazine and the blogger and influencer behind Casiraghi Style. Her style is incredibly chic and beautiful. Keep on reading to see what inspires her style, her favorite places in Houston, what she’s eyeing from Deville Fine Jewelry & Diamonds, and more.
How would you describe your personal style?
Minimal, feminine, current.
What’s your favorite piece of jewelry you own?
The ones with a personal story or love behind them are the closest to my heart.
What’s one thing every girl should have in her closet?
A Chanel twin set.
What’s one thing every girl should have in her jewelry drawer?
Jewelry cleaner. There’s no point in investing in fine jewelry unless you take care of it.
And pearls are a staple in my mind. They are the epitome of chic. I think of Katharine Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Pearls can be worn to work or for an elegant evening out, either cocktail or black tie. You will always look classic.
Who / What do you look to for style inspiration?
History and art are my greatest sources of inspiration. Everything is cyclical, from the social media influencers to magazines to historic artwork, to ballet and opera costumes. If we know the past we can know the future, even if it’s present in different medias.
Favorite restaurant in Houston?
That is an impossible question to answer! We have amazing restaurants here and new ones keep opening! I can hardly keep track.
Favorite thing to do in Houston?
We have world class performing arts here in Houston. I love to go to the Ballet, the Opera, and Theatre; though I don’t go nearly enough as I would like.
Favorite store in Houston?
Again, there are so many, it is hard to pick a favorite.
River Oaks District is a favorite destination of mine. The brands are wonderful and range well, plus I love the atmosphere there.
What are your three favorite pieces from Deville Fine Jewelry & Diamonds and why?
18k White Gold Collar Necklace with Diamonds : This diamond choker is so “WOW,” yet still minimal and clean. It’s definitely on my wish list. I would wear this to every evening event.
Cultured Pearl and Diamond Line Earrings : If you can’t decide between diamonds or pearls these earrings are a great option. They are a current way to wear the two classics.
White Baroque Cultured Pearl Necklace : A pearl necklace is a staple and this choker is a chic way to wear a pearl necklace without it being over powering to your look, the way a long strand with multiple layers might.
