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!

Spring Maxi Dress with Nakamol Cuff Bracelet

14 Apr

Sweet Bling has various designer selections, including Nakamol, a jewelry company based out of Chicago. What is unique about this jewelry is that each piece is handmade in Thailand. Pieces we carry range from delicate beaded necklaces to original wrap and cuff bracelets. While the wrap bracelets are a staple for the layering bracelet trend that is gaining major attention, the cuff bracelets are more of statement pieces with a wide leather band and bright beading.

Today we work with our Nakamol Turquoise Flower Cuff. This bracelet features detailed turquoise and gold beading on top of a rich brown leather cuff. This piece inspires a play on texture and color, which transcends into today’s outfit choice.

Starting with an olive green maxi dress, there are many reasons this dress speaks. Maxi dresses have the ability to be dressed up or down, making them a wardrobe must. Olive green is a color that works as a neutral in the way it flawlessly pairs with endless colors. It is however more vibrant than a white, black, or gray for variety. Olive green against this cuff’s gold and turquoise especially pops. Choosing to dress down this look, a denim jacket is key. This one in particular is partially distressed and with the maxi dress, pulls hints of the olive green. Some leather gladiator sandals or even flip-flops would complete this spring ensemble, with the option to remove the denim jacket in the sunshine. But with a cool breeze and a desire for some casual edge, I couldn’t resist throwing on my Steve Madden Troopa Boots in brown leather. Boots with a dress has a beautiful feminine appeal with an element of surprise. This distressed brown leather also works with with the rich leather of the Nakamol Cuff. The combination of leathers, denim, and a simple maxi all compliment each other with a mixture of texture and color.

Today’s featured piece is the Nakamol Turquoise Flower Cuff. For all Nakamol selections and more designer picks, check out Sweet Bling here.

Blue Jeans and White Tee Flare

3 Mar

Oh the timeless and classic look of blue jeans with a white shirt. What would we do without you? There are even countless songs dedicated to “Blue Jeans and White T-shirts,” it is so flawless. This look is ever transforming with a long history but the basic elements stand—blue denim with white. This can be your oldest pair of over-worn cut denim shorts from the 10th grade, a men’s white v-neck tee with Ray-bans and Chuck Taylors. Or this can be fabulous fit designer jeans, a detailed cream tunic with studded boots and bright, extravagant accessories. However it is styled, it will forever be an all time favorite across the board.

Today for a modern twist on blue jeans with white, we tie in a must have piece, the Sweet Bling Candy Pearl Leather Wrap Bracelet. This bracelet features light brown leather adorned with candy colored pearls and crystals. With its mix of various colors, this piece will fit perfectly into many looks. Now we will focus on its appeal to the classic blue jeans and white combination. What both have in common is an elegant casualness. Looking at this beautiful wrap bracelet, it certainly isn’t simple. But it brings an effortless yet put together flare on a classic style.

Here, the wrap bracelet is styled with light blue, faded, and destroyed skinny jeans with a flowy ivory top and of course, tousled hair. There is something very iconic about ripped jeans. And nothing says effortless like embracing those natural tangles in your hair. For colder weathers, add some boots and a leather or canvas jacket.
