Ettika X The Style Studies…

I’ve yet again received another amazing piece from Ettika! The handmade designer jewelry company constantly leaves me thinking far too often about jewelry and how I will incorporate it into my daily outfits. This gold ‘Million Miles Away’ long chain necklace was created for a collection in corporation with Nordstrom, and was my best friend these past few weekends, as I wore it for days around the city, nights out with friends and for my birthday dinner paired with this gorgeous dress!

It’s beautiful in a simple way, which is why it looks great with nearly every outfit! I loved wearing it with a white halter body suit, ripped jeans and a pair of nude heels. It made it glam easily and had me feeling incredibly chic. It ends just a bit past my belly button, which is perfect for a long necklace. It has a nice bohemian flow and isn’t overwhelmingly glitzy, and therefore can be either dressed up or down. The only negative about this piece is the small gem in the center piece doesn’t seem to be set in all the way; for the price of the piece I find that this is something a bit critical. It’s not something you want to see after spending $75 – not that all pieces will come this way, but mine did. It is very unnoticeable though, and is just me being a tad picky, mind it is my job to give you the most honest review!

Overall, regardless of the minimal flaw, the piece is beautiful, effortless and timeless. Like I said, it can be worn with just about anything (as I say this I’m wearing it with a pair of black leggings and khaki tunic (; ) and it has become a critical piece to my wardrobe!

Sultry Monday…

I went a little wild with the inspo’ for this Sultry Monday, but there was so much to be inspired by and I was on a role (; Simple, casual chic is still the current vibe and artsy, vintage, unique attitude.

 

April Rocksbox…

I’m back at it in the realm of jewelry and teaming up with Rocksbox to show you the awesome sets I receive from them and how you can get them too!

If you don’t already know, Rocksbox is a jewelry distributor company that hand picks designer piece and sends you a “set” (3 pieces). This can range anywhere from necklaces to rings, earrings, and bracelets. Sometimes a set isn’t exactly always a ‘set’ like you have in mind; this can be two bracelets and a necklace, the typical idea of a set with earrings a bracelet and a necklace, etc. What happens is, you pay a monthly subscription fee. When the jewelry is sent to you, you can keep it for as long as you like, or send it back for your next set. You can even send only two pieces back, and get two more back! Rocksbox also allows you to buy the designer pieces at a special discounted price!  Shipping the items back is easy and free, as Rocksbox provides you with packaging and labels.

This month, I received two necklaces and a pair of earrings.

On Rocksbox, you can favorite pieces that you like so that they can be sent to you. I ‘favorited’ these earrings, although I was a bit skeptical and unsure, when they arrived they were more beautiful than anticipated! There has never been anything from Rocksbox that I’ve gotten that I haven’t liked. The best part of all of it, is that you can always stay on trend and wear the best designer items for an affordable price.

Hi guys!

The crop top is from H&M (here) as well as the skort. These skort’s are really in style right now and you have probably seen them around a lot. Some styles come fully in a skirt, but I love the short version. It makes it more casual and comfy 🙂
I wore a black bandeau underneath the crop top to go with the black Michael Kors heels (here) and added just a touch of silver jewelry with tiny midi-rings, a small silver Cape-Cod bracelet, a small silver necklace and silver earrings that had a light aqua blue in the center. I found my really cute midi-rings for less at Pac Sun (here) and my earrings for less at Forever 21 (here)

Outfit of the Day: May 2014

This is my first “outfit of the day” post!

Every so often (hopefully at some point every day) I’ll be posting a picture of a great outfit either I, or someone in the community is wearing and where you can find their pieces!

Today’s post:

20140521-162001.jpg

(ps. Sorry for the bad iPhone 4 quality… Upgrading soon! My 4 year old sister took this picture for me in my families home in RI :))

This is an every day spring outfit with an edge! It took some personal pep talk to buy them, and many comments from my little sister calling them the “clown pants” but I rocked them today and got many compliments! I wore them with a set of low too converses and a short cropped white lace halter top with a bandeau underneath. When I got a bit cold I wore a black button up cardigan (unbuttoned of course) and let it hang off one shoulder a bit to create a relaxed, grunge look.

I got both the top and pants from LF clothing store in SoHo NYC this past weekend.
