I love fashion…trends always come and go, but there are just some that never leave or make a full turnaround. Those are my favorites. They’re reinvented, like the brooch. It’s always been here…but now they seem just a little bit cooler. And I love Nordstrom’s new feature on them! Read more
I love finding new and “cost effective” ways to handle my shopping addiction and then sharing them with you! This time, I have to admit I didn’t find this…they actually found me and that makes me happy! I’d love to introduce you to DaisyGem…one of my NEW favorite jewelry and accessories sites! Read more
I am a little obsessed with layered necklaces right now. There’s just something about them. I really love the fact that they come in different lengths, materials, colors, and styles. And if you don’t want to go out and buy one, I found a cool tutorial here, where you can make one with necklaces you already own. Enjoy! Read more
Where are my beloved Michael Kors fans? Sigh…I adore him.He’s my favorite on Project Runway!I love his classic and chic take on American fashion. Even though I’m a fan, I still haven’t gotten my hands on one of his watches. I know…I know. Bad Monique! Read more
There’s a new trend and it’s all about the cross. Fashion is always changing and so is the world of jewelry. You’ll find the cross on more than just necklaces. Rings, earrings, bracelets, and cuffs seem to popping up everywhere. Read more
Where are my adventurous ladies? This spiked jewelry may be for you-it’s not just for punk rockers anymore. I love it and I can’t wait to order a few pieces. But, knowing me, I’d hurt myself with one of those rings. LOL! I’m clumsy like that. Anyways, these pieces are an easy way to add edginess to your look. Do you think you can rock spikes?
Cosmic Thread is bringing handmade geometric shaped jewelry to another level. I discovered them during MAGIC’s Pool Tradeshow and instantly was in awe. You might have seen these photos in a previous post. The designers are two sisters, Taryn and Megan, from Colorado. I really admire unique and creative jewelry like this.
The collection experiments with the fusion of synthetic and reclaimed organic materialsinto highly conceptual designs. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted with a forward thinking focus on the future,manifesting the inspiration of space into wearable geometry.
It doesn’t have to sparkle, but it does have to stand out. When it comes to my New Year’s Eve jewelry, I always lean towards statement pieces. There’s just something about jewelry that does the talking for you. It’s an easy way to dress up a simply chic dress or a way to add a lot of drama to any cocktail dress. Don’t be afraid! Be bold and daring!
Do you have your jewelry for NYE picked out yet?
Aren’t we always on the look out for affordable but chic jewelry? OK, I’m always on the lookout for affordably chic jewelry. And lately I’ve had this obsession with Trollbead charm bracelets. I blame my best friend. But, each bead adds up and it just gets expensive. I’ve found my solution with Cutey charm bracelets.
Cutey, a UK line, is looking to bring you stylish, quality and easily customizable jewelry. They sent me the Oneiroi (£12.99) charm bracelet and was instantly charmed. No pun intended. They only carry charm bracelets at the moment, but they’re hoping to carry other pieces in the future.
I’d totally recommend checking them out if you’re a fan of charm bracelets. Right now they offer free UK shipping and they do ship worldwide. And if you use code DISC10, you get 10% off until 12/30/11. Hurry and order today!
Disclosure: I was not paid for this review, but I was gifted a bracelet. The above is my true and honest opinion.
I know we all have shopping on the brain at this point of the week. Thanksgiving is a little over a day away and Black Friday is all you’re going to hear from here on out. I’m going to pass on posting BF sales here on the blog, I think everyone else is going to do a great job of that. Instead, I’m bringing you jewelry. Actually…gold cuffs. I’ve been looking for a few lately. You already know my love for cuffs since my big hands don’t fit in regular bracelets. And all of these would compliment a range of fall colors. I seriously don’t know which one I’d pick. They’re all gorgeous!
There’s nothing like a stunning cocktail ring to brighten your day…and your outfit. With the holidays around the corner, it’s time to start looking for that statement piece of jewelry. Here’s a little bling inspiration.
The cocktail ring, also known as a dinner ring, is meant to stand out . Just look at the beauties I found below. They’re stunning…especially the vintage-inspired ones. Finding one is easy, almost every jewelry store or department has them. And they really do vary in price. I’m going to start looking for a few to grace my fingers. They’ll be great for those holiday parities!
Do you have a cocktail ring? Where do you like wearing it?
