Boho Bling Style

12 May

A few years back, I was starting to get spring fever so I went to buy something “springy.”  School was getting in the way and an online impulse buy was looking like my best option to curb the burning desire for a shopping spree.

In search of a spring dress, I found a super cute one on a random discount shopping site called Tobi, and just before checking out—I have no idea what came over me—I threw a fedora hat in my shopping “bag.”  What the heck!?  In my defense, the model looked super cute wearing it and for some reason, in that moment, a fedora purchase sounded like just the daring purchase I needed to spice up my otherwise dull spring day.

But let me tell you…Best. Purchase. Ever.  It was so fun to style!  I ended up sporting it all spring and into summer.  It worked with everything!  Casual outfits…short dresses, long dresses, complimented different kinds of sunglasses nicely anddd if I must list a practical component, it may or may not have saved my Irish skin a few extra freckles (you’re welcome mom!).

Ok, so my point here is spring hats are the BOMB.  They’re so fun!  And if you need any more convincing, these photos of our model, Clare,  should do it.

She had a California-chic-meets-European-model look going as we strolled through the Del Mar Plaza.  Her hats made me think of a European spring break and the beachy jewelry added a gorgeous twist of California that brought me right back home.

Her hat + the casual style of her poncho mixed with the classic elegance of the Rebel Refined Gold Stick Necklace with Crystals and the Rebel Designs bracelets got fashion juices flowing.  In my checkout bag now please!

RUSH by Denis and Charles Eva Multi-Strand Bracelet

2 Sep

While long necklaces have had our heart lately, it’s time to let a fun bracelet take the spotlight. The layered arm bling trend is still very much happening, so today we bring the Eva Multi-Strand Bracelet into action.

Sweet Bling 6 and Rae's BD 21-0120

This bracelet features 11 strands of bronze, charcoal, gold chain, and crystal. My favorite feature is the mix of metallics. This bracelet allows us to mix our metals and color palettes while choosing our outfit and additional accessories.

The mix of red-ish brown jeans with a black top make this bracelet work. The bronze tones of this bracelet are also the perfect gateway to wear this piece all fall long.

Spikes and studs are still making quite a statement in fashion. This trend is seen mostly with accessories, including studded heels, flats, bags, and clutches. Also very popular with spikes and studs is jewelry. Spikes add a punk like element to fashion, styled to look sleek or edgy.

Turquoise Slab Pendant with a Bright Summer Dress

7 Jul

Turquoise is a color that conveys passion, peace, and happiness. A color that seems appropriate to pair with almost any color palette, as it brings life to any outfit. From a simple white tee and jeans to a bright colored dress like displayed today, turquoise completes each look to perfection. To incorporate turquoise into your wardrobe, jewelry allows versatility and hints of the lovely shade.

Hitting this trend spot on is the Sweet Bling Turquoise Slab Pendant. This pendant features a large asymmetric stone wrapped in wire on a long gold chain (36″). This necklace features unique qualities with the detail on both the stone and chain.

Feeling inspired by this pendant, I paired it with a bright red orange high-low dress. I loved how this dress caught the rays of sun and gusts of wind while providing a contrast against the detailed stone. This look is so simple to put together– a dress, sandals, messy hair, and a pendant!

Today we talk about Nakamol, one of our favorites when it comes to jewelry with a unique flair. This summer we’re inspired by our Nakamol White Leather Cuff with Brown Stone. cuff1 This piece is handcrafted, with a gold metal braid around the stone. The crackled white allows us to be creative with our outfit choices and the natural appeal of the stone gives off a flawless summer vibe.
