Give Yourself A Gold Star, Why Don’t Ya?

I’ve been searching for a star ring for awhile now, and this lovely specimen might be The One. It’s not too big, not too small, has a nice amount of sparkle without being gaudy, and it’s less than 30 bucks. Yep, I think this ring is about to land a starring role … on my index finger. [$28, Nordstrom]

Through The Looking Glass

Our love of J. Crew is outstandingly well-documented; we’re crazy about everything the American brand offers, from perfectly cut outerwear and silk blouses to their trademark glossy patent leather pumps. They do trends just right, touching upon what’s hot at the moment without giving their wares a seasonal expiration date… or an insane price tag. Enter this gorgeous glass necklace: its circular stones are simple, but the Venus flytrap-inspired setting makes a unique, stand-out statement for all seasons. For an investment piece without the investment price, look no further. [$85, J. Crew]

Colorful Earrings Brighten Up Everything

October’s almost over, which means all of that lovely summer color has drained from my face and I’m back to my normal fall/winter skintone of “transluscent pallor.” This is the time of year when I love to wear big, colorful earrings to brighten up my face. These fabulous crimson chandeliers should do the trick. [$60, Neiman Marcus]

Not only is this colorful little terrarium pendant freakin’ adorable, it’s much less messy than stringing an actual terrarium around your neck (trust me, running to the bus while wearing a jar full of a dirt never ends well). [$44, Yellow Owl Workshop]

Must Haves: 9 Pieces Of Hand Jewelry

Last week, we showed you how to wear body jewelry; this week, we’ve decided to highlight hand harnesses and hand jewelry. If you’re bored of your standard bracelets and rings, try a hand harness — worn alone or over a glove — for some added bling.

Set The Message Straight Any Day Of The Week

Maybe you’re mean, or maybe you’re just sassy. Maybe it’s Monday morning and you haven’t gotten your caffeine intravenously yet (three shots, please). Maybe it’s Saturday night and you feel like going to a trashy dive with your girlfriends without being approached by the lechers that generally come with it. Hell, maybe it’s Wednesday, and you just want to make it clear to your fellow subway riders that you are not in the mood to be shoved (are you ever?). Whatever the circumstances, let your wrist do the talking so you don’t have to: seriously, fuck off. [$44, Screwords]

Update 9/27/12: Following the controversy over these earrings, Dolce & Gabbana has given an explanation: the jewelry is “a reference to Sicily’s traditional Moorish-inspired artifacts.” Vogue UK explains, “The show jewellery is reminiscent of ornate ceramics that often appear in Sicilian homes, restaurants and hotels. The head is inspired by traditional Moorish people, a term used to describe the Medieval Muslim inhabitants of Sicily.”  [Vogue UK]

Lots of conversation in The Frisky offices just now about whether these Dolce And Gabbana earrings of a black woman with a basket of fruit on her head are straight-up racist or just … odd. On the one hand, the earrings depict a very stereotypical, some might say colonialist, idea of a black woman: very dark skin, a head scarf wrapped on her head, the basket of fruit.  The earrings are worn by a model who appears at first glance to be Caucasian and Dolce and Gabbana is a European luxury company, which makes it seem as if wearing “black women’s heads as earrings” is a fashion statement about how “exotic” black people are. (Another “exotic” example? Victoria Secret’s “Sexy Little Geisha” outfit.) And it’s not just the earrings that raised eyebrows; style blog Refinery 29 reports Dolce and Gabbana’s spring 2013 collection included “burlap dresses” and “fruit cornucopias” which suggested an ode to “a long-lost colonial era.” Keep reading »
