Currently Obsessing Over…….OPALS

Screen Shot 2015 07 08 at 8.34.16 PM Currently Obsessing Over.......OPALS

 

Ever since I was a young girl, I have been absolutely obsessed with opals.  I think it’s the numerous colors inside the stone that seem to shoot out like beams of light in every direction. Opals remind me of the universe, caught inside a small bubble.  There is definitely something mystical and mysterious about opals, and that’s exactly what draws me to them. It’s for this reason that I am loving all the opal jewelry that I’ve been seeing lately.  From delicate stacking rings, to stud earrings, and to larger statement rings and necklaces, opals seem to be everywhere lately.  (or maybe I am just looking for them! lol)  Above are some of my picks for delicate opal jewelry. In my opinion, Wwake is doing the best job of creating gorgeous, special, understated opal jewelry that showcases the beauty of opal, without being too “over the top.” It’s perfect for daily wear.   The designs on these pieces are amazing.  They’re  great for daily wear, the beach, and nights out! Links to everything below!

FIRST ROW: (From left to right)

1) Wwake Opal stud earrings 
2) Wwake Opal large 4-Step ring (Great for stacking!)

SECOND ROW:

1) Wwake 3 Step-Baloon ring 
2) Wwake Opal stud earrings (Love the style!)

THIRD ROW:

1) Wwake Opal hanging stud earring 
2) Wwake Opal ring with diamonds 

AND……if you are looking to make a bigger statement, and want a stunning opal ring that won’t cost a fortune, look no further than SAMANTHA WILLS!  I fell in love with her gorgeous signature Bardot Ring, available in this stunning opal for a limited time!! Sadly, it’s sold out now, but it’s not too late to get on the wait list!  Also, check out her other incredible Bardot rings HERE!

Make a Statement.

c600x525 Make a Statement.

Maybe it’s because I have been watching entirely too much Game of Thrones…(If that’s even possible!), but I have been lusting after elaborate, regal, and ornate statement necklaces lately.  The right one can bring an entire outfit together.  My favorite way to wear them is over a t-shirt though.  Laid back, and unexpected…it’s just a bit of sparkle to make you feel like a Queen.  (Or a Khaleesi)  Ok, I will stop now!

Check out my current picks for the most drool-worthy statement necklaces out there. All details on where to buy these gorgeous pieces are below!

Also, I am very sorry for my long hiatus from blogging! I was working on an incredible play, with a super talented cast.  It was written by my insanely talented boyfriend Chris Ferretti.  I will be doing  a feature on the play coming up!

Happy Tuesday! (& thanks Thao for getting me into Game of Thrones!  <3 you twinnie! )

Trending for Spring: Bright and Colorful Statement Jewelry

c600x593 Trending for Spring: Bright and Colorful Statement Jewelry

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am jewelry obsessed. No outfit feels complete for me without a eye catching bracelet, or statement making necklace.  You can totally update your look, or make an old dress feel new again with the right accessories.  With Spring coming, (soon I hope!), I am seeing more and more jewel centered pieces.  I love the organic feel of a huge stone ring, or a bold necklace with multicolored stones.  It makes me think of the warmer weather, and definitely brightens my mood.  I have put together a collection of current items that I am lusting after.  I recently discovered Katie Dean Jewelry, and I have included some of her gorgeous creations on this list.  I love her use of different shapes and colors in her pieces, and I especially love that most of her bracelets are stackable. Links to purchase each item are below. Which are your favorite?

Truthfully, I had been lusting after these boots since last year, but the price tag stopped me.  When they went on sale though, I had to cave! And, believe it or not, they are comfortable!  And, they match perfectly with my J Crew Edie clutch that I also scored on sale.  Sadly, the leopard version is sold out now, but similar gorgeous leopard clutches are HERE, and HERE.  Today was actually a beautiful, warm day in NYC.  By warm, I mean 50s, but it’s January! That feels like Summer to me!!  It gave me a chance to rock my Balenciaga quilted jacket, with a fur vest on top. Again, for GREAT PRICES on Balenciaga, visit HG BAGS!! Email Erica and tell her you read  about her site on my blog!  Her prices are half off retail!! Too bad next week is back to cold. LOL Happy Weekend!
