It’s no secret, I’m not the biggest fan of black clothing. It usually doesn’t photograph well, it can make me look pale, and it reminds me of being called gothic once in Junior High. However, there are two reasons why the color will sometimes make it into my closet; it’s easy to match and it’s flattering. I’m not the best at picking out colors or patterns and deciding they will go together, so, in a pinch, I like to have some black options that I know I can throw on without thinking. So, when I saw the ruffle details on this sweater dress, and I knew I had a new Henri Bendel bag to go with it, I had to make this little black dress mine. This would be a go-to outfit for a winter wedding or a dressy date night.
While the oversized statement jewelry trend is fun, I’ve always been more of a fan of simple, elegant jewelry. If you go all the way back to my first blog posts, I was almost always sporting layers of dainty gold necklaces and bracelets, and now you’ll still rarely find me wearing much else other than the occasional tassel earring. So, when I find companies that have a selection of pretty jewelry that I love, I like to spread the word.
Allow me to introduce you to a new jewelry line I just discovered recently, 7 Charming Sisters. Their company is made up of 7 gals, who each select pieces for their line that match their own unique style. Because of this, the variety you find on their website is huge! If you’re into the big statement pieces, you’ll find plenty there. If small, stackable rings are your favorite, there’s dozens to choose from. The best part? They’re all very reasonably priced. Even if there is a luxury brand I love, I have a hard time bringing myself to spend a fortune on jewelry. I lose EVERYTHING (seriously, I’m the worst) so having small, expensive things makes me very nervous. I’ve lost or broken almost every fancy piece of jewelry or pair of sunglasses I’ve even owned. It’s bad. So, the moral of the story is, I like to buy more inexpensive pieces that still look nice.
For instance, this crystal band ring looks REAL, y’all. I had someone ask me if it was an heirloom because the stones look like real diamonds. And this gold fishbone chain necklace is a very trendy piece right now, so it’s not something I’d spend a bunch of cash on, but it’s only $27 so I have no regrets!
