Trend Watch: Eclectic Metal Mix

neck-drama-laurel-barn-small.jpg

Remember the days when you grandmother told you to always choose silver OR gold accessories?  Sorry, Grandma, but “matchy-matchy” is so officially out. Take it from your Twisted Trendsetters: Eclectic metal mix is in!


 

Unrefined metals like copper and brass naturally play off of each other so well.  You’ll find them in a full range of colors from high shiny yellows to deeper reds and oranges.  Wear them often and watch their beautiful patinas evolve into their own unique personalities.

Watch for unpolished silver with antiqued finishes that create an edgy vibe.  Pull your high sheen silver chains from your jewelry box and layer them with some matte silver and brass favorites for a distinctive contrast.     

Of course, nothing says eclectic like charms and trinkets.  Clip on funky finds, or let Twisted do the mix for you with the Trinket necklace (longest layer shown) 

I have recently re-fallen in love with the Bubbles Necklace (shortest layer shown).  I get mad props when I wear it with the Instinct Tag in antiqued silver.  Crazy love!  How are you rockin the eclectic metal mix trend?  Comment below!

What Would You Do With $300?

(reposted from SheSheBlog )

 

 

Isn’t that the universal question? This has taken a great deal of thought on my part I must admit. Normally, I would grab the cash and make a mad dash to the nearest shoe source for a stiletto fix. However, with the economy in its current situation (i.e. up-the-creek without a paddle, the boat has sprung a leak, my life vest has fallen overboard and I’m frantically treading water), I feel that this is the time for a girl to take matters into her own nicely manicured hands and show some social/economic responsibility in the aforementioned matter of just what to do with $300.  It’s time to get back to basics girls! If three crisp Benjamin’s were to miraculously appear in my wallet I know exactly what I would do. I would put together a chic and classic look that would be able to take me anywhere, anytime in complete comfort and style.

I’d begin with a great pair of Levis jeans — nothing is more classic than a pair of Levis. In fact, if you were to poll any celebrity they would say that their go-to pair of jeans is a pair of Levis. Anyhoo, I’d choose a pair of classic
Levis denim in a figure friendly cut. My personal fave is the 501 Boyfriend Cut, Patched & Repaired. Boyfriend jeans are all the rage this summer, so I’ll be right on trend. I love the relaxed straight leg style because it gives a leg lengthening effect. Total cost: $78.00 (e
xcellent value!)

  Next, I’d add a simple white tank —- I love the classic look of a figure-hugging stretchy white tank with slouchy denim. Very retro-chic. And the best part is the affordability! ($8.00) To give the look more of an edge I would finish with a great motorcycle jacket, one of this season’s hottest trends ($44.62).

 For footwear, I want to go with a sky-high pair of strappy sandals. By that I mean excellent quality leather strappies that will make my legs look long and lovely, as well as give the slouchy jeans an updated girly feel. ($79.72) In keeping with the whole biker-chic look, add a funky studded bag…like this fabu little number made fro m actual motorcycle tires! ($49.30) Complete the ensemble with a gorgeous pair of hip TWISTED SILVER TAG earrings. ($25.00)

Well darlings, looks like I have met my goal! A gorgeous ensemble, a little ladylike, a little edgy, a whole-lot fabulous, and at a grand total of $284.64! Oh what the heck, toss in this funky leather key chain to snap onto my biker-bag and I’ll never have to look for my keys again! Does this fashionista know how to make the most of her Benji’s or what? I just love it when I come in barely under the wire!

Twisted LOVES Jeffrey Campbell

If there was ever a shoe designer created to be a perfect match for Twisted Silver, it would have to be Jerffrey Campbell. 

 Based in LA, the line is created by Jeffrey himself with the help of his wife, Christine, and his small, but hard working staff. You can find Jeffrey Campbell being sold at your favorite brick-and-mortar boutiques nationwide, as well as in Canada, Europe and throughout Japan and all of Asia. The Jeffrey Campbell collection has also garnered a large following on the World Wide Web–being sold by specialty web boutiques and online shopping hot spots. With strong ties to street culture, music and vintage inspirations, the line has something to offer everyone.

MEL features skinny vamp straps and a thick ankle cuff encrusted with silver rhinestones and lots of studs for a look that’s distinctly punk-meets-princess.  How AMAZING would these be with the new Rocker Earth necklace (for which we are all waiting as patiently as we possibly can!)

 If Rocker isn’t your look, check out the FLIPPED skimmers with nonconformist squared toe, sassy snakeskin print and unique interlocking wooden rings that all combine into an amazing look, ideal for an casual or formal occasion.  I’m just thinking Button bracelet with these shoes and a swingy floral dress.  I guess they have a flirty yet vintage vibe.

HARRIS suede bootie is so BohoGlam I just can’t stand it!  The Tre necklace and a flowing cream peasant top and slouchy capris! 

Enter the shoerific world of Jeffrey Campbell at Solestruck.  Are you as in love as I am?

 

Sneak Peak of ROCKER EARTH

Just got a quick snap shot of the new ROCKER EARTH necklace coming soon to the new Twisted Silver Salvage line this fall/winter.  Check out the hand pounded vintage spoon on an asymmetrical brass links and vermilion suede cord!   

ROCKER EARTH was placed in the VIP gift bags at the 17th Annual American Society of Young Musicians Awards which will honor music legend Beach Boys Brian Wilson.

I’m thinking rockin’ it with denim, boots and maybe some slightly fem/delicate earrings just for contrast. 

How would you rock ROCKER EARTH?

Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and VIPS Get Twisted

The American Society of Young Musicians will honor music legend Brian Wilson with its 2009 Trailblazer award at the 17th annual spring benefit concert on June 10 in Hollywood.  Legendary Beach Boys’ front man has emblazed his music as the soundtrack for everything Californian.  His creations have become some of the most popular songs in music history.

The ASYM, which awards scholarships to students of accredited music schools and programs, will induct Wilson into its hall of fame following the awards presentation. Past attendees of the benefit have included ASYM committee members Quincy Jones, John Mellencamp and Chaka Khan. 

Twisted Silver is thrilled to place in the VIP gift bags Bubbles bracelets and the new unreleased Rocker Earth Necklace from the upcoming Fall/Winter 2009 SALVAGE collection.

Brad Pitt…..

Work at Twisted Silver headquarters came to an abrupt and high-pitched squealing halt this morning when my hubby, at the small local airport,  called to utter these cardiac-inducing words:

“Brad Pitt’s Gulf Stream just landed here and he’s getting out of his plane right now.”  [enter super sonic high-pitched squealing] 

angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-2009-oscars.jpg

After checking to ensure that dear hubby’s ear drums remained unharmed, I just had to instant message, Tweet, Facebook and text my red-blooded female circle the news.  His Royal HOTNESS had landed!

 

 Of course looking back, I SHOULD have been able to cast aside the cart wheeling hormones and work the celeb spotting to a Twisted advantage.  I mean, Angelina is one stylish lady.   I should have sped over there and sprinkled the interior of the G3 with Twisted Silver jewelry.  I mean, if Brad came home from his quick trip with a pair of Flower Earrings or maybe even the Flower Dome ring (because she could soooo rock them!) I was just carried away in the moment,  I guess Angelina will just need to find Twisted Silver on her own.
