A couple weeks ago, my friend invited me to a Stella Dot party that she was hosting for her other friend who reps the jewelry. I figured that I had nothing else to do that morning so why not go? Remember when your mom had tupperware parties? Well this is basically the same thing, only instead of tupperware, you’re buying awesome jewelry (that’s a tad too expensive, but who’s counting?) I always feel bad when I go to these kinds of parties so I always buy something and 99% of the time I spend more money that I would if I saw the same thing in a store. I bought these Serenity Stone Drop Earrings by Stella Dot. I am in love with them.

A few weeks later, I got them in the mail and have since worn them only a few times but get compliments every time. I think these were around $50 (ya, not what I would usually spend on earrings, but again I always buy something at these parties) and I love them. Have you shopped at Stella Dot before? What is your favorite piece of jewelry?

So I recently bought myself a pair of Toms shoes. To clarify, in case you couldn’t see the photo, they are red. I usually wear a size 6 and when I asked the guy to let me try on a pair of size 6, he said, “oh no” if you are usually 6 then you need to go down half a size because these stretch. So, being the naive shopper that I sometimes am, I decided to trust him and buy a 5.5. Little did I know that these were so tight. I’ve been wearing them for about 2 weeks and they literally hurt my feet but he swears they will stretch out.

Has anyone had this same problem and if you do own a pair of Toms, do they stretch? How long did it take? I think the salesman’s last words were, “if these Toms don’t stretch, then they will be the only pair in the history of Toms that don’t stretch.” Eat your words, buddy!

Have you guys heard of Tungsten? It’s becoming more and more popular in different types of jewelry because it’s so durable. I just found out about it last weekend when I was shopping with a friend and I am pretty much sold on it.

Tungsten is  available in many types of jewelry and in fact, you probably own some and don’t even know it! Tungsten watches are available for both men and women and come in a variety of watch face colors. These types of watches are great for anyone who does a lot of physical activity and needs a durable piece of jewelry. The great thing about these are that they don’t scratch easily and totally worth the money. Another piece of jewelry to purchase in tungsten is bracelets. These are available for both women and men and come in a variety of fashionable shapes and colors to suit any person’s needs.

Pendants have also become a very popular item in the tungsten jewelry world as of late. These pendants are versatile because you are able to change out the necklace that you have them on to create many looks for one pendant. Tungsten cufflinks are very popular among men because many times cufflinks will get damaged or scratched when laying your arm down on the desk at work. With purchasing these types of cufflinks you are assured that they will not get damaged easily.

Many people are going with tungsten wedding bands instead of silver or gold rings. This is because tungsten holds up better, is very scratch resistance and also will withstand more weathering then other precious metals will.

When choosing the right type wedding band, you should always go by what type of jewelry that they currently wear. There are tungsten carbide bands available that are solid and look like a silver or white gold band would. There are also tungsten bands that are engraved or have the carbon fiber look to them. Some of the tungsten bands even have 18k gold in them for a more “flashy” look. Tungsten is offered in both men’s and women’s wedding rings and are available for a very fair price, especially for how durable the metal is!

If you are trying to decide on the perfect jewelry to purchase for yourself or a loved one, I would definitely advise you to consider purchasing tungsten jewelry as your main choice in jewelry!

 

I love skirts – mainly because they are great for both summer and winter wear. In the winter you can accessorize your skirt with some patterned stockings and knee-high boots, then in the summer you can wear your skirt with heels. They are definitely a good bargain, if you ask me.

If you love to browse through sale items online, but you never order anything because you’re like me and don’t how it’s going to look, then worry no more! Once you know which skirt style suits you, you won’t have to interrupt your game of www.foxybingo.com or your Skype chat to actually go to the store. Here’s what I’d recommend for your type of figure:

Hourglass shape: If you have a curvy hourglass shape then skirts which nip in at the waist will compliment your figure. A pencil skirt for example is rather figure hugging and will elegantly outline your thighs and hips, before nipping in at the waist and emphaziding your curvy shape. You can make your waist look even smaller by wearing a fitted black waist belt.

Rectangle shape: Those with a rectangle shape tend to be very slim and lack obvious curves, which is why you might want to wear a skirt which makes you look more curvy. A tulip style skirt is ideal for you because it is fitted at the waist but bulks out over your thighs, giving you the appearance of a fuller figure.

Apple shape: If you have an apple shape, you are likely to be slightly top heavy with slim legs. Try wearing a loosely fitted plain shirt with a colorful knee-length skirt and some heels. This will elegantly emphasize your slim legs without having to wear a very short skirt.

Now that I’ve give you some tips, comment on where you find your favorite skirts!

I am I love with this jacket from NorthFace! It’s a little out of my price range but I think it’d fit my snowboarding outfit perfectly. What I really like about this is that the inside can actually come out in case it gets too hot OR you could just wear the inner lining. So really it’s 2 jackets in one. Thoughts??

I hope you said yay because I bought them! 30% off, super comfy and great for work!

The one thing that I dislike about the fall and winter seasons are that the clothes get sort of boring. There are only so many ways you can wear a sweater and jacket and usually the patterns aren’t that great. That’s why you really have to rely on jewelry to bring out the style in your wardrobe. Poshlocket has some really great pieces for affordable prices. They have a wide variety of styles, so you’ll be sure to find something that you love. Here are some of my favorites:

Bracelets: Throwing on a bracelet to complete your outfit can really pull everything in together. You do so much interacting with others with your hands that it’s pretty obvious why you should have a chunky, fun piece of jewelry to show off too!

 

Rings: Rings are my absolute favorite. The reason I love rings is that they add some sparkle to your hands and make them look even more feminine. This goes hand in hand with always having polished, manicured hands…

 

Necklaces: Such a staple to any jewelry wardrobe. It’s just a matter of how delicate, chunky, long or show you like ’em. For winter, I tend to stay with the short, more delicate necklaces, but I definitely enjoy some chunky necklaces as well for year-round.

Earrings: Last, but certainly not least, you can’t forget about earrings. If you’re going to choose between a necklace and earrings, I always say go for the earrings. Studs to look sophisticated and dangly earrings to look fun, flirty and casual. Here are a few of my favs.

 

 

 

 

Needing some new sweater dresses for fall, and I think I found one that I like. $98 with 25% off. Bargain. Done. Sold. (Head over to Banana Republic for 25% off all purchases! ENDS TOMORROW 10/18) Now the issue is what boots and tights can I purchase to jazz up this outfit? Got any ideas?

I love these BANDDIT boots by Steve Madden, but I do not love the price. Though, with all things Steve Madden, just gotta wait it out until the prices fall. I think one of the reasons I love this boot is that it’s loose and chill. Not so put together, but just kinda the boot you wanna throw on and go biking for a nice quiet Sunday brunch, eh?

Patience is a virtue. What’s your favorite kind of fall boot?
