Pretty Girls Wear Pearls

With Summer days ticking away we must make sure that we take advantage of all the fun runway summer trends. A runway trend this summer are pearls. Yes I said pearls! Pearls are not normally associated with the runway but often linked to weddings or grandmothers. I have even been guilty of saving my good pearls for business meetings, church, or weddings. Jason Wu add pearl accents stiletto's at his runway show and showed that pearls can also bee worn with a look that has both edge and sex appeal.

Here is a close up of the Nadja.

This runway trend inspired me to find ways I would be able to incorporate pearls into some everyday looks that would be both edgy and sexy.

Ear Par-taaaayyyy!

So I have been MIA but for a good reason! In my last post I mentioned not feeling well and it turns out that I have since battled my way through 9 months of sickness and welcomed my first child into the world! It has been the best life changing experience that I wouldn't change for the world. That being said, my blogging had to take a back seat while I got use to my new life and while everyday is something new I think that I am ready to get back to a few passions of mine jewels, fashion, and writing.
   My new obsession has to be the ear cuff. While I have been stock piling different cuffs for over a year now the trend has grown and there are so many more options to choose from. This is a relief for me because a year ago when I decided to get a couple they were hard to find and the options were limited once you found a place to purchase them. Here are a few of my favorites finds!

For my jewels where less is more:

Gold Ear Cuff
Flower Chain Rhinestone Ear Cuff

And now for my jewels were more is more!

Spiked Chain Link Comb Cuff
Now around of applause is needed from all my jewel followers for this embellished ear cuff from Love Rocks. You can play your look up or down depending on your mood or outfit with this gorgeous statement ear cuff.

You will soon learn that I am a sucker for an awesome DIY that allows you to add your own creative touch to your project. Cathy from the Trinkets in a Bloom blog  has a great tutorial on how to create your own ear cuff. If you can't find a cuff that you like in stores or online let your creative juices flow and create your own!

Hair Chain- DIY Tutorial

Its been so nice the last couple of mornings here in my new city of Charlotte. Unfortunately  I have been sick so I haven't gotten a chance to enjoy it or post lately. I am feeling better so I hope to take advantage of the weather and get back to blogging. I am totally and completely in love with the hair chain trend. It is such an easy way to add a touch of fun for your look either in the day or at night.

You can choose to have the party in the back!

London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013- The devil is in the details.

Meadham Kirchhoff  Spring 2013 Runway Show Jewels:

The Meadham Kirchhoff show, was an over-the-top girly mix of  lace,bows, curls, body jewels, and all things sparkly. The models were not only adorned with crystal embellishments on their skin and nails, but they wore the type of costume jewelry that makes you ready to jump up and play dress up.  This is a time when the idea less is more should be thrown out the window for good reason!

Now we don't want you to go overboard and drown in the ocean of tackiness but mix your metals in a way that not only compliments your  outfit that day but is also eye catching. Customizing your jewelry with one-of- a kind pieces that shows your distinct personality or personal interest is a hot trend for the fall.
