Thinking Outside the BOX!

June 17, 2010

Luxurious, personalized, ornate, mysterious, sophisticated, handcrafted, historic... shall I go on? These are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think about a Jewelry Box. We are the pharaohs who once ruled ancient Egypt to thank for the very early beginnings of this treasure chest and thank them I do, Thanks Pharaohs! Matter of fact some of the most AMAZING (and amazing is still an understatement at that) jewels/jewelry originated durning this time, but honestly that is and ENTIRELY separate post in itself, so stay tuned for that! 

But back to that jewelry box! Although I believe every girl should own a jewelry box, as it is a place to put your finest jewels... but who wants to hide away their gems all the time? Not me thats for sure, and thats why Im thinking outside the box today! Some of my favorite ways to display my jewelry have Not a thing to do with a box! I must show a favorite of mine when it comes to jewelry boxes though! 

Nicole Richie's line, House of Harlow includes jewels that are said to influenced by her <3 of the 60's & 70's  
“The collection is targeted at girls in their teens to women in their 30s who admire her and the prices range from $30 to $150. Mouawad is aiming to put Richie’s pieces, which feature fabric, leather, silk strings, chains, rivets, feathers and gold-plated metals.” 
I happened to REALLY admire her display of jewels from this past article ran by InStyle Mag! But as far thinking outside the box, here is what its all about!

Rockin the PENDANT!

June 10, 2010

A couture outfit is never complete without an adding your own flair of accessories, in this particular case, the pendant, each unique to itself is the piece of the day. The Pendant, historically coming a French word meaning hanging object, can serve many purposes. I feel that wearing a pendant is a fashionable way to express your personality! Be it your initials, your birthstone/zodiac sign

or whether you are just wanting to show off your religious beliefs

or maybe even your favorite hobby, there is a pendant out there just for you that possess the ability to match you and your individuality. Accessorizing any outfit by adorning a simple long chain with a chic pendant to rep and rock your MO!

A great example is the Pearl Pendant!

To me the pearl speaks softly for the mature woman/girl wearing the piece. It tells us that while she appreciates classic elegance her character still exudes great warmth and strength.

I myself am a fan of the Peace sign and in pendant form it is at its best!

Although it was originally designed for the British nuclear disarmament movement this little but powerful symbol is internationally recognized for peace and is a fav of mine!!! It brings to mind some of my fondest memories all in one way or another aligned with what peace is all about, while at the same time is a pendant I rock on a daily basis which I have to say is a self affirmation! Find your pendant or pendants that speak to you and rock them out loud!

Channeling Chanel

June 6, 2010

Coco Gabrielle Chanel brought to the world of fashion one of the most coveted and timeless fashion labels to this very day, CHANEL. 

Coco Chanel,  one of fashions most influential trendsetters, once said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”She also said, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." She talked about simple, comfortable clothes and how nothing can make a girl more sexier than confidence! This idea of simplicity remains ever apparent through Chanels designs today and with her signature black and white palette I find a constant reminder that of all things you should be— classy, fabulous and different. It took her so much courage to actually step up and do what she loved the most and Im fascinated by the amount of dignity and simplicity Coco Chanel has brought to a ladys mind. With that said here are the designs of the day to feel confident in!

STUDS: A Wardrobe Essential

June 5, 2010

When you hear the words/term, Wardrobe Essentials what do you think about...? I think my meaning of "essential" has become a bit convoluted and excessive over time, but when you really get down to the root, these words should bring to mind the following:   trend proof, flexible, & style saver. By this I mean that a wardrobe essential must be not only  something you can wear on all occasions without sacrificing style (trend proof) but it possesses the ability to change up your whole look without hassle (flexible) and can be used to tone down a dressy look, overly a trendy outfit, give an outfit a little glamour or edge, or just be an overall staple accent you couldn't go without- all at the same time ! The wardrobe essential of the day is the jewelry piece best known as: STUDS And Im going to share with you from inside my very own treasure chest, the studs that currently are rockin' my life!
