Are you sporting this trend, or do you find it too over-the-top?
I feel naked without earrings. I always have a necklace on, and at least two bracelets. I wear at minimum three rings every day. Needless to say, I’m a jewelry aficionado. So there are certain online retailers I like to turn to for all of my frosting needs…
Charm Bracelets // Alex & Ani
Like I haven’t shared my love for this eco-friendly positive energy brand already. See here // here // here and check out all of their Charity by Design products!
Body Jewelry // Fresh Trends
I know, I’m so wild + crazy with my cartilage and second hole piercings. But you do have to be careful with such piercings, especially me with my sensitive skin, and they have and endless supply of safe pieces to choose from– love this bow, leaf, and white gold stud especially!
Arm Party Pieces // Bfrend
I would be more than content if I could stack my arm in a handful of these fun + bright pieces everyday designed by The Doctor’s Closet blogger Monika Hibbs.
Monogram Jewelry // Dixieland Monogram
The little prepster in me can’t stop wishing for some monogrammed necklaces + bracelets!
Any + Everything Else // BaubleBar
BaubleBar is beyond on top of all of the major trends in fashion jewelry, and their affordable pricing is seriously addictive.
My Stella & Dot Virtual Trunk Show continues this week! I’ve always been a fan of charm bracelets (namely Alex & Ani and Pandora), but lately I am loving the idea of mixing it up with charm necklaces.
Stella & Dot offers the most delicate little pretties to adorn a simple chain with. Start with a base, add personal tokens (initials, zodiac signs, or birthstones), and polish off extra adornments. Check out the lookbook for inspiration– and I’d love to hear about which combos you would choose!
Be sure to place your Stella & Dot orders before my trunk show closes on September 22nd. Remember, for every piece you purchase, you will receive an entry to win a pair of the Secret Garden Earrings (and for every Stella & Dot Foundation piece you purchase, you will receive double entries!). To see more of my favorites, check out this post!

Boston isn’t New York. Boston doesn’t try to be New York. But in all fairness, this city is home to a lot of local design talent, NY Fashion Week or no. I met with Alyssa Davis, designer behind Skiler Love, a recently launched jewelry line, and I am so excited to introduce you to her brand and invite you to her upcoming launch.
From bangles to body chains and charms to brooches, her newest collection, entitled Bohemian Luxe, is “one part vintage charm, a dose of modern simplicity and a stylish sized portion of individuality.” They are unique and feminine with just the right amount of edginess– and so very delicate. Plus, prices will range for just about all budgets. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces that will be available soon…!
The Bohemian Luxe Collection will be available for purchase online starting October 1st, but all of my local readers are welcome to attend her Boston Fashion Week Launch Party and Fashion Show on September 30th at The Greatest Bar in Boston. Entry is free, just RSVP here!
