Spring 2014 Jewelry Trends

It's no secret that we're all about statement jewelry. Chunky cuff bracelets, bold necklaces, large cocktail rings, and over-sized earrings were all over the runway during Spring 2014 shows. Gold and silver, pops of color alike, we noticed an interesting change in necklace lengths. The key trend this spring is to go shorter. Chokers and necklaces that fall right above or below your collar bone was a huge stand out among designers like Balmain and Saint Laurent. If you can't afford to dish out a generous chunk of cash to nab yourself a designer piece, there are plenty of options to suit every kind of budget. Start by shopping our statement necklaces and cuffs and if you still haven't found a piece, check your local mall. We're sure you'll have no problem finding a chunky piece of jewelry this season.

On Friday, We Braid

Creating a new look can be a complicated task. Switching up your hairstyle is one of the quickest ways to give yourself a new look. The braiding craze is popular as ever, probably due to the lack of time it takes to pull off and the effortless chic vibe that comes along with it. What we love is that it works for long and short hair and is easy to do yourself from home. We put together some of our favorite looks to give you some weekend braiding inspiration. 

Check out the Braid Bar to find a professional braiding location near you or just head to your local salon if you're not the "do it yourself" type of girl. 

Happy braiding!

Gaga for Pink Lipstick

There's something about a bold lip that just instantly elevates your look. Lately we've been crazy over bold shades of pink. From matte to glossy, we love them all. The best part about going pink is that it's such a versatile color it's easy to transform the look from day to night when you're on the go. We suggest to keep your eye make-up minimal when going with a bold lip and let the lips do all the talking. Happy weekend!

One of our favorite pink colors is this gorgeously bright shade, Behave Yourself. While we don't advise you to behave this weekend, if you need a new shade stop into MAC and pick this one up.

Santa Barbara Daycay

As summer approaches, my weekend routine of taking road trips to see different parts of California commences. This past Sunday I ventured out to do a little sight seeing, and wine tasting. It was literally perfect weather and such beautiful scenery to shoot. Can't wait for the next trip!

2014 Oscar Trend Report: Statement Cuff Earrings

The stars were certainly shining on the red carpet last night for the 2014 Oscars. We spotted a trend we've grown particularly fond of, the cuff earring. Sandra Bullock and Lupita Nyong'o rocked a glamorous cuff style earring with lots of diamonds and glitz because it is the Oscars after all. Perhaps the most glamorous night in film, the beauties were stunning and chic. Great job ladies!

This bright blue hue is beautiful against Lupita's mocha skin tone. We think she looked fabulous! Just what an Oscar winner should have worn. The head band and cuff earring was a nice touch to her simple hair and make-up. 

Shop the look for only $20 with our Tinkerbell earrings. They're not only on trend, but these are a vintage sourced exclusive pair. Limited stock available. Get yours now while it lasts!
