Alison Lou’s Latest Jewelry Collection Is Made for Pasta Lovers

You may remember Alison Lou as the fine jewelry house behind those emoji-themed pieces that were instant celeb faves. Well, the New York-based brand has just released its latest collab collection that may be even more whimsical and playful than the first. The partnership is an unexpected one, but in the best way possible — Alison Lou teamed up with the NoLita fast-casual Italian restaurant, The Sosta, to create the MAMA MIA collection.

Alison Chemla, the creative brains behind Alison Lou, is a girl after our own hearts with this carb-loving collection. Chemla was inspired by a trip to Italy and the different forms of pasta around her. “As I do with everything, I noticed their unique shapes, and began to picture how they would look as earrings!” says Chemla.

Crafted from 14K gold, the pieces feature Alison Lou’s signature hand-painted enamel work and a selection of colorful gemstones on pasta shapes such as farfalle, penne, lasagna, and more.

In addition to pasta shapes, there are pieces that celebrate other aspects of everyone’s favorite comfort cuisine, like Basil and Tomato Studs ($245 each) and minimal Salt and Pepper Bracelets ($580 each). The collection just launched earlier this month with prices starting at $150 and going up to $6,500. It’s safe to say that this is the most stylish way to carbo-load.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
