Nakamol White Leather Cuff with Brown Stone and Printed Top

30 Jun

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. A great feature of this piece is its bend-ability, fitting perfectly to its wearer.

While neutral clothing is usually my go to, today I took advantage of the versatility of this cuff by pairing with a fun print. cuff7For today’s featured piece and more Nakamol picks, check out Sweet Bling here.

6 Wedding Dress Trends for Summer 2014

23 Jun

Today we take a look at some of the best wedding dress trends for this season. We will showcase our favorites along with what to expect coming down the isle.

1. Lace Sleeves: A timeless trend. Kate Middleton let us know that this look isn’t going anywhere. We may have old photos of our mother or grandmother walking the isle in white lace sleeves. And now check out this trend with a modern appeal.

3. Hints of Color: A modern bride may not always be looking for a pure white gown. Hints of color can be expressive and also add a fun summer flare.

4. Ruffles: Many brides are attracted to the dramatic feel of the volume that ruffles create.  Many textures and fabrics can be used to create this look.

5.  Fitted: While many brides enjoy the drama of volume, a modern bride may be looking for a fitted look, revealing each of her curves.

6. Bohemian: Finally, the summer wedding favorite. This is the true modern bride combining her special day with her edgy style. Specific to summer gowns, a flowy and somewhat structureless gown is popular. This can include layers of sheer fabric, giving a beach wedding feel. A bohemian style may also be reflected in accessories, should the bride choose a gown with more structure.

No longer are the days of choosing just one bracelet to accessorize. It’s now all about layering on the bling. To make this trend easy to achieve, having a few bracelets that can be layered with various outfits is key.

1. Chunky Stretch Link Bracelet  ($18) This piece provides a staple to your jewelry wardrobe to pair with endless looks. It makes the perfect base for layering with its versatility and simplicity. This matte gold piece is also special by its secret stretch feature. While looking like links, this bracelet has the ability to slightly stretch, making it easy to throw on.

2. Ivory Leather Crystal Wrap Bracelet  ($32) This wrap with a buckle closure is another neutral, but has some added bling. While the first piece is more of a classic, this piece has a very modern take on a bracelet. Wear solo with distressed denim or layered like we have pictured.

The bride’s dress, arguably the wedding center piece, can have very special detail without being extreme. Also strive for unique styling for the bride’s entire outfit. Think lace, flowers, ruffles, tousled hair and soft textures.
