White Out

I’ve been doing the whole dainty jewels thing for a while now. Gold or rose gold, white or black diamonds and that’s pretty much been the extent of it. I love the look, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve bee wanting to try something a little different in the accessories department. Feeling quite inspired by Dannijo, I thought we should chat about white jewelry.

Delfina Delettrez

Remember that chat we had about stacking jewelry a few days ago? Well we’re going to revisit that but with a focus on one particular designer who doesn’t necessarily need stacking to make her creations look good (but a fist full of Delfina Delettrez never hurt anyone…unless you decided to throw a punch with that fist — those jewels could probably do some damage).

Stacks On Stacks

No longer do we just put on one necklace, a bracelet and a ring on our ring finger. I mean, what fun is that?  It kind of all started with the “arm party” a few years back then moved onto how many rings can we fit onto each hand and now we’re pretty much at the point where it’s completely normal to wear a boutique’s worth of jewels in just one look (otherwise known as stacks on stacks and if you’re really ambitious #stacksonstacksonstacks).

The Sneaker Revolution

Not only have certain footwear styles made an appearance the last couple of years (re: sneaker wedges and slip-on sneakers…you know I’m only a fan of one) but even the classics are making a comeback (good to see you again, Mr. Chuck Taylor). I’m not sure if this whole sporty footwear thing is a trend or perhaps a revolution but what I do know is that…we need to talk about it, regardless.

New Shoes

It seems we can’t go a day in Chicago without mentioning something about the weather. We can talk about how it snowed this weekend (#bummer) and sometimes we get those amazing 50 degree days (for those West Coasters, 50 degrees is actually warm for us) and suddenly you see a funny mix of puffer coats and shorts that you’ll only find here in the Windy City.

But anyway…my least favorite part about our everlasting Winter is that I can only wear the same few pairs of shoes — snow boots, rain boots, flat boots (that could really use a cleaning right about now) and my sacrificial pair (explained here). Although there’s snow on the ground (once again) I’m staying optimistic here and hoping I can add some new shoes into the rotation pretty soon.
