Splurge v. Save – Ear Candy

I realize ‘ear candy’ may sound a little strange, but I can think of no better way to describe this (and last) summer’s jewelry staple.  In addition to bright statement necklaces and delicate midi rings, ear cuffs and crawlers are making their mark as accessories to be reckoned with.  These little (or sometimes giant) wonders aren’t just for the edgy anymore — they now range from bold and elaborate to subtle and elegant and can be seen giving classic styles a pop of trend!

Right now, my level of interest in ear cuffs/crawlers is that of intrigue; I have high hopes of trying this trend, but am not quite sure how it will turn out on my petite ears.  Nonetheless, I’ve pulled together six relatively dainty cuffs/crawlers at three different price points for all you other beginner ‘ear’udites to take for a spin.  And by all means, let me know how you make ear cuffs/crawlers work for you!

Buzz Worthy: From SJP to SCOTUS


1. 
 SJP is coming back to TV – this time in a show based on the book, Busted, A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love.  Wonder if this role will let her stay true to her style-icon ways?          

2.  In an article about Kesha’s upcoming Teen Vogue cover, Refinery 29 asks, “Are freckles making a comeback?”  Call me old-fashioned, but I wouldn’t consider flaunting freckles a trend.  Either you got ’em, or you don’t! Continue Reading

Trend Trials – Out with the Old


In a slightly different take on Trend Trials this month, I’m bringing you a list of trends that I wish would disappear just as fast as they came to be.  Though I haven’t tried out each and every one, my spidey sense tells me that these trends are often unflattering, unappealing, and unworthy of our valuable fashion time.

1.  Crop Tops.  I may be in the minority when I say that I.hate.crop.tops.  These barely-there half-shirts/stomach exposés simply don’t translate well from celebrity and blogger style to fashion for the average woman.  Granted, I loved Emma Stone’s Met Gala cropped number, but there is absolutely no way I or any of my fellow working women could or should attempt to sport the crop top in everyday life.  (I won’t even get in to how unacceptable crop tops are in an office environment, even with high-waisted skirts.)  In my humble opinion, let’s stop trying to make ‘crop’ happen.

Trend Trials – Leather

I’m excited to share my inaugural post in a new series dedicated to my pursuit of trying the latest trends.  We all know that the most ‘trendy’ pieces aren’t always the most practical for our lifestyles or compatible with our body types.  So, I’ll be picking one current trend each month and attempting to recreate it in an everyday, average Jane fashion.  Some trends will succeed, while others — I presume — will not be as lucky and will be banished to the back of my closet.
