f. is for frank New Collection Party -- The girls over at our favorite jewelry studio have designed a gorgeous new line and it's themed after the beautiful succulents that fillout the Texas landscape. Dipped aloe leaves and sedum limbs bend and twist to form rings, necklaces and other decadent goodies. But wait, there's more! They're throwing a party tonight from 6 to 9.
