BUBBLE BEAD NECKLACES

Jet Bubble Bead Necklace, InPink  $30

Bubble necklace, J.Crew $150 

 


Inspirations of Style : Mustard

INSPIRATIONS OF STYLE

MUSTARD

 

I will admit I have never been the biggest fan of the color mustard but this season it is EVERYWHERE!  I think the reason why I actually want to add a few staples to my closet in this color is because of the style of the pieces and how this color really makes you embrace Fall. I think people shy away from mustard because they don’t know what colors to pair with it besides your basic black and white. In my opinion mustard works well with cranberry, certain teals and grays….luckily for us all those colors are a must have too this season!

Want to try to mix in some mustard ??!! Check out these great options:

 Riviera Blouse, Banana Republic $69.50

 Marisa Straight Leg Corduroys, LOFT $59.90

 Edie Purse, J. Crew $238

Flared Shirk , H&M $49.95

Rib-Knit Sweater, H&M $49.95

Women’s Yellow Round Mop Dial Watch, ANNE KLEIN $75

Paraty Medium Tote, Chloe $1895

Leni Silk Dress, Rebecca Minkoff $388

Merino Wool Crewneck Sweater, Burberry Brit $275

Inspirations of Style: Peplum

Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

Inspirations of Style: Bangles and Stackable Bracelets

Bangles & Stackable Bracelets

 

Stackable bracelets and bangles are very trendy right now and come in various textures, gems and colors that are usually the perfect finishing touches to any outfit. I love color and am never afraid to wear it but sometimes its more fun when your accessories pop and become the eye-catching item of your outfit. Every store, from the cheap & trendy to the expensive & luxurious, carries beautiful arm candy to fit your personality.  If you wear the right outfit, these trendy jewelry options below will look ten times more expensive than what you paid!

CLICK HERE: Etched Rhinestone Bangles, Forever 21 $7.80 

CLICK HERE: Enameled ram bangle, J.Crew $98

CLICK HERE: Vintage Crystal Bangle Bracelets, Target $19.99 each

CLICK HERE: KATE SPADE NEW YORK PUTTING ON THE RITZ HINGED BANGLE BRACELET, $99.19

There are excellent pricey options that will give that same fashionable look but will become collector items in your jewelry box and will one day be passed to your daughter like Chanel’s 2012 set of 4 glass stone cabochon bracelets that just might be worth that “mortgage payment” price tag.

CLICK HERE: Set of 4 Glass Stone Cabochon Bracelets, CHANEL 2012

Maybe your jewelry box already has some bracelets you can work with & you don’t even have to spend a dollar!!  Fashion is about using your imagination & digging thru your closet…not always your wallet!

 

Happy Jewelry-Box Hunting!!
