Goodbye Summer: September Super Six is here!

Fall into six fun things to brighten your autumn

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times

KellyColumn415Newest815Happy official end of summer / segway to fall Super Six! Hopefully, I will help to ease the pain of transition with my September picks:

  • Fairchild Baldwin Necklace (available at No.109Shop) : OK, these necklaces are instantaneous glamour. Run, don’t walk, to No.109 to grab your favorite color before they sell out. Handcrafted and manufactured in Italy, each piece takes 2 hours to create and consists of over 200 beads, genuine Italian leather, and a sturdy, magnetic closure. The result? A necklace that conforms perfectly around your neck every single time. The saturation of color (in the best hues to compliment your fall fashion) and subtle sparkle make this accessory something you will reach for time and time again. A show stopper, for sure. {109 W. State Street, Kennett Square, PA or call #610­925­0109 for shipping options}

  • Dual Chrome Gel Manicure (available at My Polished Salon) : By now, you know my feelings about switching to darker colored nails once the season changes ­ retire the pastels and go for the moodier shades. I’m OBSESSED with this latest option (only applied by manicurist, My, for the time being. So, ask for her by name when making your appointment). The color resembles an oil slick in its iridescent color shift from blue to green to purple. SO COOL. The process is unique and must be done one nail at a time. Cost $50. {112 S. Union Street, Kennett Square or call #484­732­8694}August-2016-Super-Six-
  • Free People Embellished Military Jacket (available at Houppette): I have a problem when it comes to effortless jackets like this. I can’t resist the urge to add just one more to my closet. The beaded embellishment at the shoulder makes it edgy and cool and the cut is super flattering. Wear it in early fall as a light coat for outside and in the winter months more like a blazer with a t­shirt and jeans. {101 W. State Street, Kennett Square or call #484­732­8451}
  • Golden Girls Puppet Show DR2 Theater, NYC: This looks HILARIOUS. If you are headed to New York with a bunch of friends, what a great way to have a few laughs! I’m planning to go in mid­October. Who was your favorite character? I can’t decide. Click here for additional info:
  • Funny Bone Comedy Show OCTOBER 13th: Buy tickets NOW for a great night of comedy to benefit the Mental Health Association in Delaware. There will be a silent auction from 6:30 to 7:30pm and the performance runs from 8 to 11pm. Seven comedians will command the stage of The Grand Opera House. {Call #302­652­5577 or go online to }
  • Melanie Auld Jewelry ( Delicate, interesting jewels at an amazing price point. I swoon over her stackable ring sets and sweet, layerable necklaces. Would make a perfect present for your bestie, mom, or sister.

Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend!
