In the vast world of monthly box subscriptions its hard to determine which ones will really give you what you want. I had the opportunity to experience Jewelbits, a jewelry subscription box based in New York City. This one is sure to give any jewelry lover what they want!
Let’s start with this adorable packaging!
The box I opted for was “Boho Babe”. ”Rock this cool style with “a bit” of edgy accents & interesting textures. Be yourself with our earthy, feel-good pieces.” – Jewelbits
Each box comes with 2-3 pieces of jewelry. I recieved a set of bangles, a pendant style necklace and a statement necklace. The quality of this jewelry is amazing (jewelry is in the creators’ blood…so they definitely know their stuff!). Take a look at what I got!
These mixed metal bracelets are a great staple to add to any jewelry wardrobe.
I already envisioned this pretty pendant with a maxi dress in the summer.
This necklace was definitely my favorite piece of this box! It goes with so many things and it fits perfectly!
You can sign up for your own fabulous box on Jewelbits’s website. Enjoy!
Here’s the short list of things on my spring shopping list. I’m so excited to wave bye-bye to winter and say hello to new trends! Click here to shop these items.
Slip-On Sneakers: The sneaker trend is still raging on! Try this comfy “loafer-meets-sporty” style with boyfriend jeans or an A-line dress.
Statement Purse: Statement necklaces are still awesome, but for now use your handbag to stand out. Quirky styles are inexpensive to find and surprisingly easy to wear
Stud Earrings: Now that the winter hats are coming off throw your hair up and wear some girly, fun studs! (Hot trend: mismatched studs)
Matte Makeup: The “dewy” look often appears around springtime, but not this spring! Finish your look for the day with a colorful matte eye shadow, a powerful matte lip or a cool matte nail polish. (Hint: Nars’s new Matte Multiples make this super easy!)
Despite the crazy weather in California the stars showed up for the Academy Awards’ Red Carpet and looked fabulous while doing so. Let’s take a look at some of my favorites shall we? Which stars caught your eye on the red carpet?
Lupita is a superstar in this pastel “Nairobi Blue” Prada! (But we already knew that right??)
The glitzy bodice of this Gucci gown makes Anne Hathaway glowing perfection!
Not too many people can pull of a lace/peplum combo but Julia Roberts makes it work in this fun, Givenchy gown.
Old Hollywood Glamour!! Kate Hudson is stunning in this Versace dress (I just learned that the shoulder piece comes off…even more amazing!!!)
Hands down, my favorite of the night! Charlize Theron is a pure beauty in this Dior ensemble.
Ok Spring…hurry up! This touch of warmer weather has me thinking about spring, more importantly spring fashion! Floral prints will be everywhere this spring and summer so here are a few pieces under $100 to get you started. Click on the picture for shopping info!
The Academy Awards air on March 2 and we all know that all eyes will be on the red carpet. There were plenty of fabulous gowns floating down the runways during Fashion Week. Here are a few I’d like to see on the Oscars’ Red Carpet.
(L to R) Badgley Mischka , Oscar de la Renta, Dennis Basso
(L to R) Jenny Packham, Reem Acra, Naeem Khan
(L to R) Carolina Herrera, Alice + Olivia, Naeem Khan
(L to R) Bibhu Mohapatra, Marchesa, Prabal Gurung
My Fashion Week life is complete…I saw Anna Wintour!
Live. In the flesh. Within arms reach.
Fashion Bucket List item aside, I had a very exciting day working backstage at three different shows. Prabal Gurung, Altuzarra and Michael Costello (the mastermind behind this). Prabal Gurung’s gorgeous Nepal-inspired show was a mashup of delicate chiffon and chunky knits full of pretty draping and intricate detail. Even the much talked about streaker that crashed the runway couldn’t take away from this stunning collection. Prabal even made fun of the crown-wearing crasher at his afterparty by wearing the crown, found backstage after security restrained the fool, and giving plastic party crowns to all of his guests.
The Altuzarra woman means business this season, but not in the sense of a pantsuit and briefcase. Strong yet feminine silhouettes graced the runway. Rich neutrals were offset by hints of neon and lets not forget the furs!
Here are some of my other favorites from Day 3.
Black-and-White: (L to R) Christian Siriano, Jill Stuart, Mara Hoffman
Feeling Blue: (L to R) Tibi, Alexander Wang, Rebecca Taylor
The Black Dress: (L to R) Christian Siriano, Christian Siriano, Monique Lhuillier
