Oscar Style

Mar 2, 2014 6:01:00 PM

We loved the statement necklaces that sparkled on many actresses across the red carpet. Idina Menzel wore a stunning Chimento necklace while Kristen Bell wore a Piaget Necklace and matching earrings. The geometric styling of Naomi Watts' Bulgari necklace reminds us of our Connor Necklace!

Lupita Nyong'o could do no wrong last night in a Prada gown and subtle jewelry in gold. We loved her large cocktail ring with hints of blue, similar to our new Ellington Ring that is available in two shades of blue. 

Amy Adams stunned in a simple Gucci gown with stand out Tiffany Earrings. We love the combo of red and navy stones,similar to our very own Campbell Earrings. Another trend we spotted on the carpet were subtle touches of bracelet sparkle. Add a touch of glitz to your wardrobe with the Wren Bracelet

That's A Wrap

Dec 22, 2012 2:17:53 AM

We only thought it was fitting that one of our last blog posts of 2012 give you some helpful hints to wrap up those last-minute gift purchases. Gifts for your neighbors, your yoga instructor, the hostess of the New Year's Eve party, parents of your child's best friends . . . the list can go on and on.

Since we know how busy (and expensive) this time of year is, we've put together a new board on Pinterest just for you. (Or maybe we mean just for them?) From DIY to OMG, Our Go-To Gift Idea List is a collection of inexpensive treats for just about anyone, with most items from stores accessible just about anywhere. We plan to keep it growing throughout the new year, but click here to head there now. 

Here are a few of the pins we've added to our board ranging from $4-48:

Young House Love Book

This week, when John & Sherry Petersik of YoungHouseLove.com announced their upcoming book available for pre-order on amazon.com, we couldn’t have been more excited! Not only do they run one of our favorite blogs, we also got the pleasure of meeting them when they crashed our office last summer. (See that post on their website here.) While the Petersiks were snapping photos around our office, we fell in love with little Clara and even named a pair of earrings after her. 

With all of the chatter about DIY, design and books, we decided to make a list of the top 10 hardbacks that have inspired us when decorating our homes. After all, homes need their own kind of jewelry—right? Of course, on November 6th, this list will quickly grow to a "Top 11 List" as soon as Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home arrives in our hands!

These Are A Few Of Our Favorite Blogs

May 18, 2012 2:38:20 PM

There’s just something about reading a blog that completely makes our day. Here are a few of our favorites:

Interior Design We absolutely love this Mom and designer, Erika from Urban Grace Interiors. Her Pinterest boards are so inspiring and get us all giddy for interior design.

DIY Just as we prove you don’t have to spend a fortune to exude great style, Young House Love offers a peek into their daily life at home, giving fantastic ideas on how to do just about anything yourself. (Plus, we’ve met them in person and they couldn’t be sweeter.)

Personal Style You know when you’re standing in front of your closet and can’t decide what to wear? Professional style blogger, Jessica Quirk, shows how to incorporate bargain buys, vintage finds and investment pieces on her blog, What I Wore.

Celebrity Style Dana Weiss, also known as Possessionista, is the sassy, go-to blogger for finding details on where to find styles seen on celebs and TV stars. She definitely has her finger on the pulse of fashion and the remote.

Of course, this short list doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of great blogs out there. If there’s a link you think we should bookmark, let us know in the comments section below.
