Sparkle and Shine


After watching this past season of Dancing with the Stars, I became obsessed with the shiny, glittery jewels that the couples wore each week. The girls would pile on the bejeweled bracelets and I decided I needed to add some of these sparkly bangles to my collection.

These diamond and turquoise bangles were found at the TJ’s jewelry counter in Puerto Rico and while I’m not a dancer, I found the perfect occasion to wear these magical beauties…my birthday!

Don’t you think Carrie Ann, Len, and Bruno would love them!?

Look at all of these glittering beauties at Nordstrom.

Look familiar?

Tis the Season


It has finally arrived…Christmas Eve is here!

I attended a holiday soiree last night and to whip me into the holiday spirit, I decided to wear something quite festive.

This green tweed bolero with black bejeweled studs trimming the jacket from Forever 21 went perfectly with my black sheer top!

Can’t leave the house without an earring, so you can imagine my excitement when I rumaged through my jewelry box and found these red and diamond vintage’esque earrings!

Little touches of red and green are perfectly OK for the holiday season. Just don’t wear your red skinny jeans and a green turtle neck together for your holiday parties…because I mean…that’s ugly.

Chanel sent this magical green tweed jacket down the runway for their Fall 2011 collection! It’s everywhere!!

The Stone Age



St. Barths calls for the beachiest of looks!

I knew I couldn’t be wearing heavy, dark chunky necklaces when I was there because my look would scream East Coast and I wanted to blend with the locals!

When I went to NYC a few weeks ago, I found a DE-LI-CIOUS stone cuff that I had seen walk down the runway at one of that fashion shows in September…clearly I had to have it!

I’m obsessed with the green/gold combo!

This pendant was being displayed outside a store in SB!

While perusing some St. Barths shops, I came across some AMAZING agate stone necklaces! 

St. Barths Stone Gems: 255 € aka $345!!

NYC Stone Hidden Gem: $13

Are you loving the stone trend? Would you wear it as a necklace, bracelet, or both?
