Last night the 2014 Teen Choice Awards aired on Fox and millions of teens and tweens tuned in, excited to see their favorite stars walk the blue carpet. Surfboard shaped awards were doled out between performances but we were only paying attention to the fashion. Because crop tops and metallics are actually much more interesting to us than the Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, et al. But, again, the fashion was fun.

Below we’ve chosen the looks we actually loved and have stored in our mental banks for near-future style inspiration:

Aisha Dee's white dress looks so comfy- perfect for Celine slip ons and brunch.

Trends We Love: Mismatched Earrings

New Leather Necklaces + Festival Style Inspiration!

festival_fashion17

Ah March is upon us. This means that Spring is right around the corner. And what does Spring bring besides April showers and May flowers? Music Festivals! SXSW in Austin, Coachella in California, Winter Music Conference and Ultra in Miami- there’s so much to see and hear, and so many fashion choices to be made!

Festival-Necklaces---Email

Festival fashion is always such a fun project to plan out. Fringe, tie dye, cut off denim shorts, Native American and South American styles mixing with vintage designer and so much more- it’s a time where people are free to be as stylish as they want (take celebrities wearing high end fashion to their VIP tents) and as laid back as you feel (like plush cartoon inspired onesies.) Either way, jewelry plays a HUGE factor. It’s fun, it’s personal and it, well it’s jewelry! That’s always a good thing.

Schiaparelli Spring Couture Show: Our Favorites!

_ARC0137.450x675

Oh, happy day. Not only is it MLK Day ( a day of huge importance that in no way is being played down by this post), but it’s also the first day of the Paris Couture shows. Starting today, we can enjoy a glorious 7 days of amazing, hand made pieces stomping the Parisian runways and providing countless hours of inspiration and envy.

Elsa Schiaparelli, aka the surrealist designer, Salvador Dali collaborator, and creator of “Shocking Pink” was known for creating awe inspiring, crazy pieces with bright colors and even a suggestively placed lobster. Now, after 60 years out of the Couture show circuit, designer Marco Zanini showed his (gasp, first ever) haute couture show to a crowd of who’s who, like Jean Paul Gaultier, and the response was resoundingly positive.

We are ALL ABOUT hand made goodness, so the Couture Shows are like our candy store of sorts. Every single piece that walked the runway was made by hand (no machines at all!) in the ‘Place Vendôme premises, the same spot where Schiaparelli held her crazy and dramatic “Circus” show in 1938.’ (NYT) Not to mention the amazing and weirdly wearable hats by milliner Stephen Jones and jewelry by the french designer Gripoix. Everything worked perfectly. Check out some of our favorite looks!

Check out the mini-stone necklaces to add a pop of color.
