Choked Up!

8 Sep

Chokers are back y’all! Well, they’ve been back for a while, but they’re catching on like wildfire. I’m old enough to remember when chokers were all the rage in the 90’s. They are definitely back with a vengeance~ as are the entire 90’s(good and bad).  Anyways, this past weekend, I received two chokers that I ordered from Forever 21 to wear with a specific outfit. I ordered black to be safe & burgundy hoping it would match the heels I was going to wear. It ended up matching perfectly, so I went with that one. Long story, short, I got so many compliments and messages about the chokers after I shared them on Instagram and Snapchat- especially after I shared the PRICE!!! Both chokers were under $10 total!  So without further ado…… here are links to both chokers. What I love most about these chokers, is that they are dainty and appear to wrap around the neck. I think they are so cute and bring an element of style to a look without overpowering it like a large ribbon type of choker could.

Rocksbox ROCKS!!!!

3 Jun

I am obsessed with Rocksbox!!!!!!  I have signed up with plenty of subscriptions boxes, and this is by far my favorite!  Rocksbox is a monthly jewelry subscription box that arrives in your mailbox each month and has hand picked (by a stylist) pieces chosen to fit your tastes. When you sign up there is a questionnaire where you choose all the styles that you love and from there, they make specific boxes just for you! The cool thing about Rocksbox is that it’s a loan box, so if you happen to not like something, you can just send it back for a different piece. Think of it as the Netflix of jewelry- you can keep your pieces as long or a little as you’d like and once you send them back, you get new pieces!!! All for only $19 with a $10 credit going toward the purchase of any pieces that you can’t live without. Each box includes three pieces (necklace,earrings,ring etc.) and if you fall in love with any of them you CAN purchase them after the $10 is applied. My first box arrived today and I am SO impressed with the pieces, they are all MY STYLE! I’ve got to be honest, I had no idea just how accurate the styles would be, but I am blown away….these are all pieces I would buy! I look forward to my next box, but I don’t want to send these pieces back anytime soon!!!! The struggle is real! I want to keep everything!

Rose Gold Watches On Every Budget!

28 Jan

Rose gold has been trending for quite some time now and it’s no surprise: The beautiful hue looks great on all skin tones and can be mixed with yellow, dark and light metals. I personally love wearing my rose gold watch year round. I pair it with pastels and light metals in the spring and with dark greys and blacks in the winter months. Whether or not you’re a jewelry person, a rose gold watch is a must for everyone. They can be causally worn alone or as a part of an arm party- it’s up to you.  If you do not own a rose gold watch, now’s the time!

Fall Trends Part 1! Pop Of Print!

1 Sep

Happy 1st of September everybody!!!!!! September, for most fashionistas is synonymous with Fall fashion!!!!!!!  I get so excited when September rolls around every year (although I live in Sunny southern California and it’s usually STILL Summer weather around this time) There are SO many fabulous Fall trends that I can’t wait to rock!! I will be sharing them all with you in my Fall trends series starting today with POP- pop of print!  You all have heard me talk about how much I love a POC- pop of color in an outfit, well I also love a pop of print!!!!! In the fall, I especially love a pop of animal print rrrrrrrrrrrrrr!    I am an animal print lover but I never over do it, there  is a thin line between chic and TACKY, so don’t go too crazy with it.

*If you prefer more animal print, like a dress or a jacket, try to go solid on everything else to keep the balance in your look!

Allergic To Jewelry? You Need This!

15 Jun

I’ve been pretty lucky when it comes to jewelry, I can wear any metal or material without any skin irritation or an allergic reaction but most people can’t say the same.  Whether it’s a reaction to solid gold, brass, silver or costume jewelry,  Jewelry shield  can help you.  It’s basically a little bottle of magic potion that when applied to your jewelry, provides an invisible barrier that protects sensitive and allergy  prone skin.  The cool thing is, all of your costume jewelry will never turn green or tarnish with this product so it’s a win win!

 

Available at Amazon $5-$7 This stuff is worth it! ( works on glasses and watches too)

Lovely Lavender Bags!

10 Apr

Earlier this year I announced my “colors of the year”- Emerald and Lavender were the frontrunners and I still feel the same way.  I have been pretty obsessed with purple anything lately but am partial to the light & feminine lavender hue in particular…the pretty pastel screams Spring and is so adorable!  There is no better way to incorporate new colors into your wardrobe  than with a gorgeous new bag!   Lavender pairs especially well with camel, navy, white and other pastels and is quite versatile for a candy color. Love color? wear your lavender bag with a floral dress or pant for the ultimate Spring look.
