Keep It Simple

This season, jewelry trends have been on the wilder side of the spectrum. Opulence,  decadence and more-is-better have been the reining ethos and have dominated the major magazines and runways.

Exhibit A:

Unfortunately, I haven’t embraced this concept and have really been attracted to sleek, more modern pieces. Perhaps I’m rebelling against the idea of disposable clothing, knowing that in a season or two, this type of jewelry won’t be popular.

I’ve been eyeing this bracelet and necklace and may just “self-gift” after the holidays!

In my opinion, these pieces aren’t trendy which makes them worth it. As I save up for the wedding (and retirement and graduate school!) I have to be cautious of my spending.

Happy Friday!

Trend I’m Starting to Like…

Body chains!

If you’re wondering what’s happened to me, I’m still ok =) (I used to think this trend was so trashy!!) I think I’ll save this trend for the beach. Body jewelry has probably been around for ages, but I think it’s picked up more recently as celebrities and other bloggers start wearing chains. I even think a designer on Project Runway Accessories loved making this type of jewelry. I’m starting to get into this trend because it’s unexpected and the chains that are thin and delicate seem to add a little shimmer to one’s look.

I’m in love with the last one. Here’s the Etsy shop where this chain can be found!

What do you think about body chains?
