Look of the Week: Casablanca!

Thanks to Piper at Daily Diva Dish for the Look of the Week.  Hope necklace layered with Whistle…with that Vera Wang organza dress!  Yes, there is an Ingrid Bergman quality.  (I used to watch Casablanca once a month and cry my eyes out each time)




1 Chain Necklace Worn 4 Ways

Catherine Horgan of [My] Style Files is so spot-on right when it comes to chain necklaces!  With multiple style options, you can explore your own personal chicness.  No one wants to look the same as everyone else… that’s not style, that’s copycatting.  Chains are the remedy!

The only thing I’d add to her expert tip video below, is to experiment with connecting chains to alter lengths.  Add a chain bracelet to a chain necklace, or two necklaces together.  The Hope necklace and Instinct Tag are two chain pieces on the Twisted Outlet that are perfect for multiple variations at an unbeatable price.  Have fun with it!


No Bells, Just WHISTLES!

Whistle necklace by Twisted Silver

Jewelry magically sets the tone of your look and the new Whistle necklace is pitch-perfect fun!   Inspired by those cotton candy summer days on the Boardwalk, Whistle is pure sophisticated nostalgia.  The vintage brass whistle on a long 35 inch chain layers beautifully with other delicate chains of varying lengths. Be prepared for EVERYONE to ask if it really works. Oh yeah, high and loud!  (How cool would it be if you had a vintage skate key to go with it?).  Whistle is available online Tuesday, April 27 at Twisted Silver.

Gift hint: Whistle  gets top marks as a end-of-the-year teacher gift!

Oh, don’t forget to read Piper’s whistling review at Daily Diva Dish .

And Tammy at A Mom in Red High Heels swore she’d never wear a whistle…until now!

Earth Day IN STYLE!

Key necklace by Twisted Silver: Eco-friendly AND uber chic

Aside from replacing old light bulbs for “twisty” bulbs, fixing leaky faucets and collecting food waste for composting, do Earth Day IN STYLE.

The Twisted Silver special “Hot Deal of the Week” is the Key necklace, our favorite eco-chic design created to be earth-friendly with rescued cast-off metal, reused wood beads, and a recycled authentically vintage skeleton key.

Get the Key necklace this week at a very special price to make everyone GREEN with envy…


Kate Hudson’s Bracelet Stack

Kate Hudson was spotted at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. on April 18, 2010 wearing armfuls of bracelets.

What makes this look work is an eclectic mix of bangles, bracelets and cuffs paired with statement rings.  Keep the rest simple, whether tank and mini like Kate or more refined office wear.  No earrings or necklaces needed to cloud the statement.  Really, what could be easier or more versatile?

Get the Twisted version with Brick bangle, several Whisper bangles and Scroll ring in silver.  Pair them with practically every outfit, and your wearability cost is pennies.

[picapp align=”right” wrap=”true” link=”term=ken+downing&iid=7931343″ src=”3/f/7/3/Around_Bryant_Park_8aa7.jpg?adImageId=12449002&imageId=7931343″ width=”234″ height=”351″ /]

Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus’s Fashion Director, presented the Runway Report Spring 2010 at the department store’s San Francisco flagship.  Exclusive guests were treated to a luxurious fashion show and heard firsthand the fashion king’s top trend picks for the season.

Among the top trends: PILE on the jewelry!  His advice for spring is to mix your fine jewelry with your fashion jewelry.  Load up your arms with bracelets and bangles and cuffs.  Wear multiple statement necklaces.

Of course, we Twisted Fans have been saying that for a while.  I’m telling ya, stick with and you’ll lead the on-trends!

What are you favorite pieces to layer?… because we all know you’ll ALREADY rocking this trend!


Trend Watch: Blooming Florals Spring/Summer 2010

From the Spring/Summer 2010 fashion runways to the Liberty of London for Target collection, flower prints and motifs are in full bloom this season.  While some can certainly pull off the dainty femininity of a floral print dress:

maybe others prefer flexing  flower power with a just shoe statement:

If too much floral sweetness sends you in to a fashion version of diabetic shock, stay on-trend and TWISTED with these coppery flower accents.  Dainty but with just a touch of… well, attitude.

Are you feeling flowery this season?
