Fashion Math: Summer Suits + Statement Necklaces

Everyone should have at least one plain, well-tailored suit in their closet for interviews and business meetings, but that doesn’t mean you have to lock it away until such an occasion arises. For example, check out this photo from Dylanlex’s lookbook, featuring a suit paired with the brand's gorgeous Sienna statement necklace…

Must Haves: 12 Pieces Of Badass Bone Jewelry

Over the weekend, I picked up a carved bone ring and it hasn't left my finger in five days. Smooth and subtle, carved bone pieces can add a bit of bohemian style to your general vibe. We're not suggesting you don accessories made from human hair or bones (which is apparently a…

Must Haves: Pyrite Pieces With Extra Punch

You might know pyrite by its other name -- Fool's Gold. It's true, the stuff vaguely resembles hunks of unpolished, just-mined gold, but it's way cooler than that -- mostly because it's actually affordable. Plus, we think pyrite has an edgier, punky quality about it. We've found 12 pieces of pyrite-y jewelry -- most under…

Shopping Guide: 12 Colorful Heishi Bead Bracelets And Necklaces

Heishi beads are a traditionan African bead made from vulcanized rubber, which is why they're often referred to as vulcanite beads. Although they come in more of a standard bead form, I'm particularly partial to these little disks. The vibrant colors are mega-cool and can serve to excite an otherwise kind of staid outfit. Plus,…

We are huge fans of DIY projects that can make us look glam in under 15 minutes. This DIY necklace design (made by me and modeled by Amelia) is awesome for three reasons: 1) It picks up on one of the hottest necklace trends, beads and chain; 2) you can recycle beads and a chai…

Blow Other Necklaces Out Of The Water

I always wanted a really bitchin' lifeguard whistle just for personal use. Hey, you! Get out my seat! Lady, put down the last cupcake! Who cares if I lose friends and alienate people with all the power and authority I've conferred? C. Wonder's got a cute 14K-gold plated whistle that will be just the thing…

Do Not Want: A Necklace With Gum Appeal

Etsy is a great place for allowing artistes to express their creativity. It's also a place where weirdness goes to die. Take, for instance, this bizarro felt and fake leather necklace from Etsy seller the Triangle of Bears, which is made to resemble a mouth full of teeth and gums. Sure, you'd want to wear…

Wendy Brandes’ Jewelry Reminds Us Of “Game Of Thrones”

We're obsessed with "Game Of Thrones." Obsessed! I just finished watching all of seasons one and two in, like, two weeks. And Amelia's now reading the books. I want to wear their weird medieval gowns, and have handmaidens to do my hair, and oh! The jewelry? So that's why we're particularly smitten with jewelry…

Weekend Project: DIY Ruffle Necklace

I love the look of this ruffle necklace -- it's so delicate and feminine -- and apparently you can make one yourself in about 10 minutes. You do need a sewing machine, but if you don't have one, I've found that bringing a bottle of wine and a box of cookies over to a…

A Fantabulous Guitar Case Necklace

I had a few friends in high school who insisted on bringing their guitars to every single social gathering and closing their eyes dramatically to play "Moondance." The sight of a guitar case still gives me a little rush of anxiety, because I never know when someone's going to force me into a Van Morriso…

Lace is showing up everywhere right now -- dresses, tights, gloves, skirts -- but I'm especially loving the way it's being used in necklaces.

Bright Lights, Big Necklace

When it comes to jewelry, my philosophy is the more, the better. Coco Chanel's advice was to remove one accessory before leaving the house. Mine is to pile it on until I'm content. But after receiving JustFab's Ready to Rock necklace, I think Coco was on to something. This big, bold rhinestone necklace is so…

Do Not Want: Kill Yourself And Die Necklace

We did a double take upon seeing this necklace sold by Colette, which reads "Kill yourself and die." (It also comes with a piece of artwork with the same slogan.) If there's a reference to something here, we're missing it. If there's an artistic explanation, we're not seeing it in the product description. Either way,…

Obsessing Over Fenton/Fallon For J.Crew

There's not much to say about the Fenton/Fallon for J.Crew jewelry collaboration. It's just awesome. The drapey, multi-tier look that so many try and fail to do well has been accomplished, the chains are bright but not over-shiny, and we want literally every single piece from the collection. Sadly, it's not cheap, so we've found…
