Who doesn’t love brands launched by BFFs? Vena Cava, Rag & Bone, Dannijo…the list goes on. We’re happy to add debut collection Fortune Favors the Brave to the list. Launched by Shannon Davenport and Julia Wilson (formerly of Loeffler Randall), who have been friends ever since meeting in college on the beaches of San Diego, Fortune Favors the Brave jewelry represents a bold and modern reinterpretation of Southwestern themes. The pieces, which range from chunky bold cuffs to bolo chains and concho necklaces, are constructed from silver plated brass, 22k gold plated brass, sterling silver and turquoise stones. We can’t wait to rock the West Coast meets East Coast aesthetic, especially with prices ranging from $165 to $350. THE DETAILS: fortunefavorsthebravenyc.com

The eternally beautiful Carolyn Murphy is one of those few figures that makes Chic chronically overjoyed. But when has she looked better than in this Jason Wu frock? The antiqued sequin embroidered chiffon dress is from the designer's Pre-Fall 2011 collection, and she paired it with Wu's Dovima shoe and Lauren clutch while attending the NYC & Company Foundation Leadership Awards Gala, held December 1, 2010 at the Plaza Hotel. Bravissima!
