    Velvet & Sequins Double Wrap Bracelets

    In 2019 I bought my first Victoria Emerson bracelets and was hooked. I don’t have a ton of bracelets from the brand, but I have a few and enough to know that I love the look of them and the quality. Victoria Emerson often has sales and once in a while they do a BOGO (buy one, get one free) sale. During the holidays they had one of those sales and I picked up 2 double wrap bracelets – a multicolor sequins one and a green velvet one. Major heart eyes! Both also had the double wrap with chain option which I have for the white and black leather wraps,…

    Mirrored Jewelry Armoire

    I’ve always liked the look of mirrored furniture, but having a whole mirrored dresser didn’t seem vary practical to me. Plus think of all those fingerprints! I’d be Windex-ing every day! As I settled in to my new condo, I knew I had to do something about all my jewelry. I have a large jewelry box with a lot of my fine jewelry, but over the years I’ve accumulated so much fashion jewelry that my jewelry was living out of boxes and the little clear baggies they come in. It was getting messy. So I decided to look for a jewelry armoire and then it dawned on me that I…

    Emerald Pull Chain Bracelet

    I love pull chain bracelets because they’re customizable to your wrist size. I have small wrists so unless bracelets are adjustable or stretchy, they’re usually too big on me. And even if they have a lobster claw closure or toggle unless there are enough links, it could still be too big for me. But, pull chain bracelets are completely adjustable – you just pull until it fits! I had my eye on these emerald and crystal dangly pull chain bracelet from Alex & Ani all during the lead up to the holidays. I’m pretty sure I shared it on Instagram Stories multiple times. I was going to buy it for…

    Pisa Customizable Beaded Bracelets

    Did you ever make beaded bracelets when you were little with beads/bead kits from the craft store? I made a few – I wasn’t super in to making jewelry – and I honestly can’t remember what words I made using the lettered beads. Maybe my name? When I saw that Baublebar was making customizable beaded bracelets just like those kids made back in the 90s, but fancier, I instantly liked them. For the Pisa bracelets, you can customize the lettered beads up to 12 characters with anything you want (within reason). I spent a few days thinking about what words I wanted to do. It wasn’t just a meaningful word…

    Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

    For my stocking stuffer gift guide, I wanted to think of items that would actually fit in a stocking. I see so many stocking stuffer gift ideas that float around the internet where I’m like what size stocking do you have? I mean, when I was younger my parents would put little gifts inside my stocking (hence stocking stuffers) and a few gifts below the stocking on the fireplace as well as presents under the tree. But presents under the stockings are presents, not stocking stuffers! So that’s why I wanted to keep my ideas for you guys items that would actually fit in a stocking. My stocking holder is the…

    October 2019 Favorites

    How was everyone’s Halloween? Aside from the kids at school dressing up, it didn’t really feel like Halloween to me! So the fact that it’s now November is just crazy to me. I don’t have that many October favorites, but the ones I do have I seriously love. First up, empanadas from Division Street Cafe.  Earlier in the month I was really in the mood for some empanadas and I have gotten take out empanadas from Division Street Cafe multiple times this month! They heat up great for lunch at work too! One photo is from when I was heating up a bunch at home and one photo is from when I…

    Restyled: Deep V Lace + Gold Hoops

    If you’ve been following me since earlier this year then you may know I’ve been looking for a pair of medium sized hoops for a while. I thought I had found a great pair from Francesca’s but they broke the first time I tried to wear them. I recently bought a set of 3 from Amazon for $8! They’re pretty good quality for being less than $10 actually. The set consists of  silver, gold, and rose gold pairs so they pretty much match any outfit! I wore the gold pair last weekend with a graphic tee with deep v lace paneling in the front and back which I’ve worn on here…

    Pear Shaped Earrings

    I don’t know when it happened, but some time over the last few months I have suddenly started to like or perhaps love pear shaped stones. No idea why or how this affinity for the cut came about. But I’m in to it. The Styled Collection had a pair that looked really pretty, but when I went to buy them they were sold out and for about a month I never saw them restocked. Then, I found a pair on Amazon for less than $10 and they had a rose gold option so I was all about that! So, funny story about these earrings. I actually bought them twice. I…

    Beaded Bracelet Stack

    By now I’m sure you know I am a fan of The Styled Collection. They have great quality jewelry for really reasonable prices. And all their pieces are really on trend and even dupes for high end brands like David Yurman cable bracelets and Cartier Love bracelets. A little while back I saw that they started selling beaded bracelets that are perfect for stacking. The Seychelle Bracelets have average size beads with a gold chainlink detail. The Santorini Bracelets are thin bracelets with small beads and have some gold detailing. A variety of colors are available and I wish I could buy them all! In the end I picked out…

    Octagonal Hoops

    Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week and it’s been a busy one and will continue to be so it’s just a quick blog post from me today. Months ago I talked about (either on here or on Instagram Stories) that I was looking for a pair of hoop earrings. Dainty, not chunky, but medium to large in size. I bought , what I thought, were really pretty hoops from Francesca’s, but they broke! They broke the first time I tried to wear them. So I was on the hunt for a new pair of earrings and I came across these unique ones from Baublebar. The octagonal shape is so…
