How to Choose Your Wedding Jewelry

Choosing your wedding jewelry is definitely one of the most fun aspects of choosing your wedding ensemble. Once you’ve selected the perfect dress you can start to visualize what type of jewelry you want to wear. Because bridal style is so much more than the one-note style it once was, you can use your wedding day accessories to express your personal style. Whether you opt for boho bridal jeweled headdresses, classic pearls, or glamorous diamonds, you have options ladies!

Friday Faves: Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! It’s time to put on your cleverest (or in my case, warmest) costumes and shake down your neighbors for candy! If you’re too old for that and feel uncomfortable asking fellow adults for free candy, get thee to one of the many Halloween parties on your social calendar and request mini bottles of Fireball instead. A little anti-freeze never hurt, and hey, if you’re in Chicago you might need it! It works that way, yes? #Science.

2014 Jewelry Trend: Ring Stacks

The ring stack is to jewelry trends what maxi dresses are to fashion trends. They popped up in a big way, but they aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Especially now that the fashion set knows that maxi’s are simultaneously: comfortable, gorgeous, fashionable, conducive to non-leg-shaving. Ring stacks are exactly the same way (except for the leg shaving). Now that this trend has officially reached saturation, its devotees and late-adopters alike are all “This is awesome.” So no, I don’t think the ring stack is going anywhere for the foreseeable future. Further proof, the ring stack phenomenon has infiltrated bridaly jewelry, Read More →
