If there’s any three-word phrase that can instantly calm my control freak, perfectionist self, it’s “Let it be.” I love the sentiment. I love the song. And I really love this beautiful pendant necklace, made with hand-drawn chalk art. Isn’t that lettering dreamy? If you like the necklace but hate The Beatles (I met someone once who hated The Beatles, so I know you weirdos exist), check out the rest of this Etsy shop’s gorgeous chalkboard art jewelry. There’s definitely something for everyone! [$30, CuffLoves]

I thought I would eventually get tired of the initial jewelry trend, but it’s been going strong for, what, 20 years now? And I’m still totally into it. The feminine script on these handmade 14kt gold rings is so pretty, and they look even better stacked. At $50 a piece, they’re not cheap, but could easily become an heirloom piece in your jewelry box. If that’s out of your price range, the Etsy artist who makes these also makes some adorable initial bracelets that are a bit more wallet-friendly at $16.50 a pop. Whichever style or letter you choose, you’ll have no trouble spelling out C-U-T-E. [$50, Charlie & Marcelle]
The jury is still out on whether Valentine’s Day is a the most romantic day of the year or bullshit consumerist faux-holiday meant. (I say it’s both, plus a brilliant excuse to eat an entire box of Russell Stover chocolates in one day.) No matter how you celebrate February 14th, surely you can agree that the symbol of St. Valentine’s Day, the heart, looks cute all year ’round. From scarves to jewelry to smartphone cases, a heart accessory or declaration of love spans every season. So show some love to these 13 heart accessories that you can wear this Friday and any every day after.
Ever since Ami told me about her hippie-tastic trip to Sedona, I’ve been obsessing about crystals and want to fill my life, house, and jewelry box with them. Luckily for me, Etsy is happy to oblige, with tons of amazing crystal necklaces. Click through to check out seven of my favorites, guaranteed to add a bit of mystical charm (and possibly, like, good chakra energy or something?) to even the most basic outfits…
So I broke both wrists this fall. The casts are now off but I’m left with some rather ugly surgery scars on both wrists. Frankly they look like suicide scars and I’d like some ideas for how cover them up when I choose (job interviews and the like). The scars are each about four inches long, so I’m thinking I probably shouldn’t just wear a giant stack of bangles on each wrist. That seems like it’d be jingly/loud as all hell. Also, I work mostly in an office with no dress code, and part time in a furniture repair shop (so a couple of recommendations for stuff that won’t get caught on tools would be awesome). And I don’t like gold. Any ideas? – Rachel
Yes, I do! You have the right idea when you mentioned a stack of bangles, but instead of piling on a bunch of metal bracelets — which would definitely alert everyone within earshot of your constant presence — you want to wear a mini-arm party that combines a quiet beaded wrap bracelet with a thick cuff. That way the two can bump up against each other all they want without making a shit ton of noise. (Personally, I love piling on lots of bracelets, so you could even add a thinner cuff or a watch to the stack, on the other side of the wrap bracelet.) To give you a few ideas, I picked out three wrap bracelets and paired them with three cuffs — and you could easily mix and match these options, if you like them. These should cover your scars and add some pizzaz to any outfit, casual or dressed up. Check out ‘em out, after the jump! And thanks for your question? (Got a Style 911 question?

I’ve always considered pearls to be in the same category as Wayne Newton, Werther’s Originals and “I Love Lucy,” i.e. “Things Grandmothers Love.” But after last night’s Golden Globe Awards, I have not been able to stop thinking about the pearl earrings Rashida Jones and Emma Watson wore. Rashida’s earring is actually called an ear pin and feature three pearls in graduated sizes; Emma’s Dior earrings feature a large and small pearl connected by a bar. Inspired by their vaguely punk take on pearls, I tracked down 10 pairs of pearl earrings and cuffs that you can totally share with granny.
Sure, the gowns are gorgeous and the hair and makeup are sublime, but do you realize how many dollars worth of jewelry “attends” the Golden Globes? A lot. Probably enough to make at least a tiny dent in our national debt, but I digress. There are also amazing shoes and handbags and hairpins to drool over, so let’s not waste anytime. Click on to see some of the very best accessories worn to last night’s awards show — and a few of the worst (we couldn’t resist)…
Cuff bracelets aren’t all reminiscent of Wonder Woman’s chunky wrist shield thingies. Delicate, lightweight and thin cuffs have a decidedly feminine feel that you can rock solo or pile on for a serious arm party. Here are 10 whimsical cuff bracelets I’m totally hot for.
Whenever I find myself assembling a red carpet gallery for The Frisky, I’ll gaze wistfully at some floor-length formal gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence or Kerry Washington and think, I suppose I’ll never have an occasion to wear something so fancy. Like, I don’t anticipate myself ever going to the Oscars or attending some black tie gala, so a custom Armani Prive gown is probs not in my future. It’s cool, I’ve come to terms with it. What I will settle for, however, is a pair of ridiculously sparkly earrings — and so should you! Wear ‘em now to any holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, and later to add a dose of fancy bitch to your favorite everyday look. Click on for 12 pairs I’m obsessed with…
