Free People’s latest look book is one part boho chic and one part sexy city girl, thanks to the brand’s newest campaign model, Candice Swanepoel. We love the styling- all the way from the over the top volume down to the embossed platform birkenstock-inspired slides.

The collection is right on time, too! Our Lariat necklace, made exclusively for Free People, looks stunning on the South African super model. Check out how Candice rocks the Lariat necklace, below, and head over FreePeople.com while they last!

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.

Mario Testino Displays His Photos of Beautiful Native Peruvian Clothing

Screen shot 2013-11-21 at 4.46.13 PM

Famed photographer Mario Testino took a different turn with his highly acclaimed work to capture the breathtakingly colorful clothing of Native Peruvians of the mountainous region of Cusco. His exhibit is called “Alta Moda” or High Fashion in Spanish. The fabulous photos will be on display at the Queen Sophia Spanish Institute in New York until March 29th, 2014. The images are vivid and truly inspirational. The color and texture, along with musical and cultural elements really set these photos apart from lots of mainstream fashion photography.

Queen Sofía Spanish Institute, under the chairmanship of Oscar de la Renta, is the first American venue to present ALTA MODA, a series of photographic portraits by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino. Known primarily for his work in fashion magazines, Testino makes a bold departure with this series. Alta Moda—literally “high fashion” in Spanish—documents Peruvians in their vibrantly colored and ornately adorned traditional and festive dress from Cusco, one of the highest mountainous regions of Peru. ALTA MODA by Mario Testino is accompanied by a series of related public programs that will additionally serve to reinforce the Institute’s mission of promoting greater awareness and understanding of the culture of Spain in the United States through a steadfast dedication to advancing scholarship in the humanities and the arts. Please check the website www.qssi.org for a schedule of events.

So, if you happen to be in the city during the next 4 months, take a day to mosey on over to the exhibit. For now, check out some of the photos below!

A Little Monday Inspiration

tumblr_msvdbvf1Wn1s4yngxo1_500

Considering that its Monday, and many of us are currently sitting at our desks, and maybe some are toiling away at a job that doesn’t really let them spread their creative wings, we figured there’s no better time for an inspiration post! Wether you are a designer, accountant, or a stay at home mom, there’s always room for some motivational images to jog the artist in you.

It’s that transitional time of year where the leaves are soon going to change colors and the weather will drop in temperature (yes, even in Miami!) New York Fashion Week has swept in like a whirlwind which means it’s time to darken those color palettes and gear up for the end of the year (while designers prepare for Spring.)  We here at Cecilia Gonzales are fully prepared, with an amazing line of gorgeous jewelry to complement any cool-weather ensemble. Check out some of the earrings HERE, on sale for a “secret” limited sale, just in time to stock up.

Here are some beautiful people, interesting photos and intriguing design/outfits that get our gears moving. We hope they inspire you as well!

Norbu Bijoux in Williamsburg, BK

IMG_5052

We are finally back in Miami but we already miss NYC! For those of you lucky enough to be in New York right now, make sure to take a trip over to Norbu in Williamsburg. The cozy boutique is home to many amazing jewelry designers, including Cecilia Gonzales’ line of beautiful pieces. While we were in the city we, of course, had to stop by and see how everything was going.

IMG_5056

The store has jewelry displays as far as the eye can see- you can easily spend hours in the store just wandering from designer to designer. The store is peaceful- you really start to feel at home and comfortable, which is nice in the day and age of fast fashion and even faster transactions. Take a second to breathe in the light scents and enjoy the natural sunlight pouring into the wood-adorned boutique. The jewelry in this shop is all hand picked by Sang, the shop owner, and beautifully curated alongside special gift items.

Monday Inspiration: NYC

Hello New York City! We are back once again to the City That Never Sleeps for ENK’s Accessorie Circuit show and we couldn’t be more excited. The weather is gorgeous, the people watching (when we have time) is always entertaining, and the scenery has that classic New York attitude that really makes the city come alive.

We stumbled upon these great walls on the way to the show, showcasing Street Art in it’s rawest form- Graffiti. The huge pieces are so vibrant and eye catching. Something about these walls is so trained, so experienced and  professional, yet so whimsical and free that we had to share them with you! Please enjoy, and get inspired!
