Inspiration: W Magazine

Since it is easy to let January give you the blues & make you feel blah about your wardrobe I thought what better than to do an inspiration blog post, jewelry is the perfect way to banish the blahs! The W January Spring Fashion Preview arrived on my doorstep awhile ago but I thought I would flip through it again and find some  jewelry inspiration! Here we go:

I chose this fantastic tribal ensemble to work with. I love chunky jewelry and I thought the pattern of my sweater weirdly went with the skirt.

I started off with Xenia Mara’s Dark Copper-plated Aluminum & Copper Watch Chain Necklace, ($335):

I used this piece to create a shape  like the shape of the piece in W.

Then I added Winifred Grace’s Bead Medley Necklace, ($325) layered on top:

And as the final touch a few bracelets to emulate the bangles in the editorial. Comfort Station’s Rope Bracelet, ($185), and a Steel Bracelet by Surplus, ($175):

Ta-Da! Fierce (Awkward!) model pose. I love creating a look that has the same feel or vibe as a look straight out of a magazine or off the runway. Using multiple pieces makes it freshly unique and all your own.

Bisou, bisou,



Safari Chic vs. Glam Rock

So today Erica and I decided to style one of our favorite pieces in the store (Winifred Grace, Horn, brass, and Leather Necklace, $305) two different ways!  It’s the perfect piece for Fall! Everything has to be leather this Fall ladies… including your jewelry!!!

What I’m wearing today….

It is all about the “arm party” around here!  If you don’t have 57 bracelets on then you need more, and more, and more.  It’s a job requirement.  Today I am wearing NEW vintage Native American beaded bracelets found in Montana with Dustin last month.  We have finally put them out!  They are all $88 – I think we only have 5 so get it on your arm (party).  I am also wearing the Iosselliani Turquoise and Pearl bracelet which I tenderly call “rock and roll granny” $325.  We are all about the new and newish Iosselliani this week.  Cuckoo Clock necklace by Comfort Station (UK) $375 and to top it all off hitchcock Madrona Turquoise drop earrings on solid 14K gold ear wires $200.

Now Playing in the shop: HALL AND OATS people!  Ridiculous.
