Baguette is Back

Baguette is Back

baguette diamond ringI’ve never thought about my engagement ring before I was asked the question, I never had a dream “cut” or stone just like I never thought about the venue or flowers so I still don’t know the difference between a princess cut and an asscher cut (if you’re as clueless as me, here is a little help) and the first thing I thought about when I heard the word “baguette” was a delicious piece of bread. Turns out, it had a little more to offer…

geo open ringAre you one of those people who have beautiful, tiny fingers with which you are in love until you face the inevitable heartbreak of not finding your size of a dream ring? Well, someone listened to our cry for help and created adjustable rings – someone else took it to the next level and came up with cuff/open rings. Tiny fingers, it’s now or never.

The Pearl Challenge

The Pearl Challenge

coco chanel pearlsI don’t care what she said, we all know that pearls indeed were Marilyn Monroe’s best friends. They were Coco Chanel’s weapon of choice, Jackie Kennedy’s trademark, Princess Di’s power indicator, Grace Kelly’s elegance booster and perfect additions to Elizabeth Taylor’s fortune, not to forget Carrie Bradshaw’s yet another extravagance tool and key point in Holly Golightly’s ageless look.

Most importantly it is the only jewelry in history that never, ever gets out of style. This year we’re going a little bananas over modern styles but the real deal is always the classic look. Unless you have some handovers from your grandmom or been gifted one on your wedding day, you can get your very own timeless pearl piece from websites like Mesenso or Pearl Paradise. If you are still not ready for the good old Hollywood look, here are some perfect daily alternatives.

Golden Hour

Golden Hour

ashley olsen gold watchThis look of Ashley Olsen was one of my all time favorites, always keeping me inspired. Simple, casual and elegantly teamed up with only one piece of jewelry: a statement gold watch. A beautiful gold watch, aside from being functional by definition, can single handedly revive the whole outfit. Something you would hold dear especially in summer when you can’t bear with sticky jewelry all around you.

Nose Ring Revival

Nose Ring Revival

daria werbowy nose ringI’m sincerely hoping that there is at least one more 90′s kid out there who put a stingless, adjustable mini ring on her nose when she was a kid and walked around all day like that; insistently placing it back again everytime it falls down. Honestly since then, I’ve never thought about getting my nose pierced again, until NOW. It just still looks so freaking cool!

I think it requires a more “proper” nose than mine but I can’t resist the Daria charm and I can’t help but want to have one. For ornate Hindu styles I’ve found that Etsy is the place to go; however for simpler, authentic gold & silver nose rings the best address is Fresh Trends since they have the biggest variety of colors and styles.

Choking With Nostalgia

Choking With Nostalgia

Best-of-London-Fashion-Week-Streetstyle70Growing up I had several weird and infamous moments (nay days, months, years) I actually believed that I can look like a character from a movie. Most significant ones in those dressing up adventures that gave my parents the real headaches were: Xena, Milla Jovovich in Return to the Blue Lagoon (I must add that I was a chubby, short haired girl) and of course, Mathilda (Natalie Portman) from Léon: The Professional, still one of my favorite movies of all time.
