Neck Layer Friday: Divas

Today’s Neck Layer Friday feature is one of those obvious combos that we never think to pair together.  When we do, we kinda go, “Oh! Of course!”  Friends, it’s the Diva necklace layered with the Diva choker.  The trick is to keep the brass flowers on each necklace on opposite sides of each other, and voilà!

Get the look this week, because Diva choker is specially priced through November 1st

Neck Layer Friday: LockIt and Time

Today’s Neck Layer Friday focus brings you an unexpected twist: LockIt necklace worn “scarf style” paired with the Time necklace.  Most of the time, we like to layer necklaces of the same chain weight — delicates with delicates, heavies with heavies — BUT this is a case of some necessary rule-breaking.  The vintage inspired skeleton key and the vintage watch faces just create the most interesting story, don’t you think?

To help you get the look, LockIt necklace is the Hot Deal of the Week now through October 25.

Nicole Miller Spring 2012

Spring and summer this year is going to be vibrant.  As in Nicole Miller inspired eye-poppin’ vibrant color against black….

What We Love

Completely attention demanding bright colors contrasted with black.  And with these dramatic lines? Doubly so.

Why We Love It

There’s a punky 1980’s attitude about this look that’s all grown-up for 2012.  I have to say, it just makes us want to blast Blondie.

How to Twistify It

Intensify the ’80’s attitude — like, for real — with edgy chunky jewelry like the New Attitude or Capture necklaces

Look of the Week: Rocker Sophisticate

The Rocker Sophisticate look is as easy as three bracelets by Twisted Silver: Justice Cuff in silver, Hardware bracelet and Beatnik bracelet in antiqued silver.  Ease into it with just one, or rock out with all three.  Ray-Bans optional.


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)



Look of the Week: Brass Cools Flame Hot Shoes

Thanks to A Mom in Red High Heels for the Look of the Week.  Show-stopping red pumps are the statement makers in this set, the flames tempered just enough by the brass embellished tank.  Of course, the brass XO Earrings are the perfect finish to a stunning ensemble.

Show-Stopping Shoes


The Unexpected Edge

It’s the touch of raw, chunky and traditionally masculine that makes your femininity pop with signature style.  Antiqued silver jewelry has a vintage, roughed-up attitude that opens up possibilities.  Don’t often wear “girly”?  Try ultra feminine looks  accented with antiqued or tarnished silver jewelry.  Or pair Twisted Silver and Anthropologie for the perfect unexpected edge…


Look of the Week: Embrace Brass

Brass is so beautiful, changing with air, moisture, time. Brass plays well with so many skin tones and styles, and is far cheaper from haughty metals. Brass has ATTITUDE worthy of a Look of the Week.

Featured in this set: Tapestry bracelet, Belt bracelet, Cutie bangle, Motif earrings, Knot ring, Flare ring accent the sequin boyfriend blazer and tattoo inspired tunic.
