Your Valentine’s Day Outfit — Accessories by Sweet Bling

13 Feb

Ok, so admittedly we know that not everyone is lucky enough to be sharing Valentine’s Day with a lover of 15 years.  So how do you strike a balance between the silky red dress that says “15-year-commitment” and your casual street clothes? Well, when it comes to a date night out on the town, you really can never go wrong with black. And while Valentine’s Day might seem like an occasion for a long silky red dress, it really doesn’t have to be that complicated.  So abandon panic mode.  Deep breaths…exhale.  Sweet Bling has got you covered. Open your imagination, head to your closet, and we’ll almost guarantee you’ll be able to pull one of these classic looks together with the help of some Sweet Bling!

LBD—“Little Black Dress”

Ok, so the dress doesn’t necessarily need to be “little,” but honestly, who doesn’t have a black dress hanging in their closet?  And if by chance you don’t, this is perhaps one of the easiest articles of clothing to acquire.   If your LBD has a high neckline, like this one by Nasty Gal, pair with our Sweet Bling Red Slab Pendant . Or forego a necklace and opt for our Ruby Red Teardrop Earrings.  We love the classic elegance of a high black neckline and sparkling red earrings.  Hello romance!

If your LBD has a lower neckline, like this one from Lulu’s, pair it with our Sweet Bling Red Vivica Necklace. Add some black pumps (we like suede) and you’re ready to go.

Leather & Sheer—Love is Near!

Sorry, the rhythm was just too cute.  But seriously, hopefully you’ve noticed that black leather pants are in.  I was hesitant to join the troops (did I really have the legs to pull them off?!). But let me tell you: Greatest. Decision. Ever.  Not only are they going to save the day on your stylish & sexy, but-not-too-casual V-day outfit, they also pair great with a denim button down for a more casual daytime outfit. Here’s the look: Black leather pants (or faux leather), sheer black top, cheetah pumps  (yes, we said cheetah!) and this super versatile Aerin Crystal Drop Necklace and our Bling Bling Crystal Earrings. Oh yes!

If you are into color, another option is to pair the black leather pants with a wine peplum top (see the one we found on The Lust List) and our Sweet Bling Isabella Jewel Necklace and our Chunky Crystal Stud Earrings. This look works with black shoes or some neutral shoes for a bit more pop (we like nude patent leather pointed-toe-pumps OR nude suede pointed-toe-pumps).

At the end of the day, we not only hope that Sweet Bling takes the stage on these classic V-Day looks, we hope you have a night to remember {no red silk dress necessary}.

Hollywood Awards Season

13 Jan

It’s awards season in Hollywood! I love seeing the glam looks of gorgeous gowns, shoes that rock and jewels that sparkle. At the top of my list for best dressed at Sunday’s Golden Globes were Amal Clooney, Kate Hudson and Emma Stone. Jennifer Aniston and Allison Williams also pulled their looks together quite nicely. Click here for  the Golden Globes Best and Worst Red Carpet Looks. All this fashion talk has me thinking about what to wear to my local Academy Awards Viewing Party, coming up next month. It will be the third year of the ROSCAR party. And no, that isn’t a typo. My friends, Ros and Howard, throw a lovely Oscar party. And, they do a fabulous job making their guests feel like VIPs. The event is a catered affair and even includes a red carpet to welcome us. While I am the Halloween Party Diva, Ros is the Academy Awards/Oscar Diva — hence the name, the ROSCAR party.

 

I snapped these photos of my model, Alyssa, wearing one of the outfits I’m considering for  the party. The Heritage Shine Full Skirt and the Elbow Sleeve Zip Back Pullover are both from Banana Republic. The shoes are Ivanka Trump and the jewelry is, of course, from Sweet Bling.  The Ivory Vivica Necklace has just enough sparkle to complement the black sweater and metallic skirt.  I layered The Black Leather Crystal Wrap Bracelet (RUSH by Denis and Charles) and the Charcoal Stretch Bracelet for a bit of a rock and roll look.  Ahhh, now I have over a month to wait for the bash!

Spikes & Studs: The Best 3 Spike Jewelry Pieces

14 Jul

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. In today’s fashion, spikes are much more mainstream meaning any girl can take on  this trend to add a flare to her own personal style. With Sweet Bling, it is possible to wear unique designs  at an affordable price. To tackle this trend, Sweet Bling has pulled a few spike pieces that vary in intensity, color, and styling.

1. Spike and Bling Necklace: Gold spike and clear crystal necklace. The small spikes and neutral palette make this a perfect piece to try out the spike trend with a variety of looks.

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!
