Bling Things

Jewelry That Adds Sass to Your Wardrobe
Sometimes all it takes is one special necklace, a stack of bangles or a big cocktail ring to kick up the style quotient of an outfit from hum drum to hot diggity! We've picked our top choices to make everything from a simple t-shirt dandy to a dress more dazzling. This week's Friday Favorites have become our new "obsessories."

Alison's Pick

Maritius Gold & Rhodium Custom Aqua Cluster Hinge Bracelet, on sale $198 Alexis Bittar

Bold? Heck yeah! Nobody will need glasses to spot this on your wrist. Alexis Bittar, if you read this, know that I am a huge fan of your work! I own more Diane Von Furstenberg than any other designer and for jewelry he tops the list!

Short Crystal Bib Necklace, $39.50 Loft

Bib necklaces aren't new, but this crystal necklace looks vintage! When paired with a cashmere crew neck sweater and a pleated A-line skirt it will look like I borrowed it from my grandmother's jewelry box.

Christina Moffitino's Pick

 

Stary Stare Ear Cuff, $10 Urbanog

When ear cuffs started showing up on the jewelry radar they became my new "obsessory". It gives a great reason to work a side hair swoop or a sleek high bun to show off a fancy ear piece. An ear cuff can jazz up any outfit, from a simple tshirt and jeans to a classic LBD.

Christina Wright's Pick

Cursive Letter Necklace, $52 Olive Yew

 For my everyday jewelry, I love simple, meaningful pieces like this rose gold initial necklace from Olive Yew. This is perfect for yourself (or a gift for a friend). If you're anything like me...you want the initial of your significant other and/or kids. Simplicity makes a beautiful statement!

Lauren's Pick

Teacup Spoon Crystal Ring, $10 She Inside

This little tea party ring looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland and I LOVE it! It's a great conversation piece and suits me perfectly for my tea drinking habits. Even if you're not the tea partying type, you gotta admit, this two-fingered ring brings on the bling!

We love this look for workwear. Unless you work in a corporate setting where skirt suits and hosiery are still required, most work attire has become far more creative. Many in my industry haven't bought a full matching suit in countless years. Instead, it's the art of mixing separates. This look works multiple ways in your wardrobe and easily transitions from 9-5 to cocktails. The skirt, while fitted, isn't mini so there's no concern you're showing off the goods if you bend down. The blouse is a classic staple for your closet while the blazer will work with a skirt, pants or even jeans on weekends. And what better way to create your own style identity than with accessories. The bib necklace and gold toe cap heels are statement makers. The necklace would help make a simple strapless black dress stand out and the cap toe heel poking out from under long hemmed pants in any color from red, burgundy, teal to hunter.
