Reader Request: Incorporating Fine Jewelry

How to wear fine jewelry with your everyday outfits

Lovely reader Nique asked:

I would love it if you would do a post on how to incorporate fine jewelry into an outfit.

I love these pieces, so I don’t want to get rid of them, and I hate that they are sitting in my jewelry box languishing away, but I don’t really know what to do with them. read more

Balancing Earrings with Hairstyles

Shown above are my favorite earrings from Infrared Studios. They’re big monsters, as you can see, and I’ve worn them tons since I nabbed them back in November of 2010.

If I hadn’t jammed my hair behind my ear for the photo on the left, you’d hardly have known I was wearing earrings at all.

This Week I Love …

… hoop earrings.

OK, you caught me. I love hoop earrings EVERY week. My face is fairly rectangular so relatively large rounded earrings work well for me. I’ve got quite the little arsenal of hoops in my collection! But no two pairs are alike, and I adore the variety available in hoops.
