Happy New Year Beauties and Fashionistas! I’m totally ready to Rock 2013, how about you? And in my opinion, there is no better way to make a statement than with some fabulous show stopping accessories, jewelry and shoes. The right accessories can really turn an outfit from drab to fab, they can really set the tone for the night and they can instantly shift a girl’s mood. And oh yeah, if you are anything like me and over indulged just wee bit too much over the holidays and are finding your clothes just a little bit more snug than usual, you know that accessories always fit! Following is a fabulous collection of sparkle, bling, shimmer and studded accessories to really help you glam up 2013 and make an impression. Work It Girl!
I am constantly impressed with the creative and fashion forward jewelry designed by Stella & Dot. This vintage-inspired bib necklace knocked my socks off the first time I saw it-I absolutely LOVE it! This stunning necklace is made out of glass and epoxy stones set in oxidized brass and enhanced with hematite plated chains. This necklace is a statement making show stopper and every time I wear it, the compliments roll in.
Have you ever visited the Sole Society shoe shopping site? If not, I highly recommend checking it out because they have the most amazing, on trend, high quality shoes at very affordable prices. I am beyond obsessed with these uber fab studded booties from Sole Society. They are chic, edgy, a bit rock-n-roll and put a fab finishing touch on any outfit. The quality is superb (even though they are made out of faux leather) and they are super comfortable. I can’t rave about them enough!
I am totally smitten with the statement making, beautifully crafted accessories from Johnny Swain. These Swarovski crystal embellished bracelets are gorgeous and were my gift of choice this holiday season. I am kicking off the new year wearing the combo of Big Hunk O’ LOVE paired with the Little PEACE. That’s a mantra I want to emulate in 2013!
I switched my iPhone case to this fabulous blinged out peacock case this holiday season and it definitely made a festive statement. This case is even more stunning in person and I am impressed with Cellaris’ craftsmanship and attention to detail. Even more impressive it that it has held up to daily use, dropping and man handling.
Isn’t this bejeweled light-up lipstick a beauty and fashion bloggers dream? Not only does it get attention whenever I take it out of my bag (the light is brilliant!), but the red lipstick inside is very moisturizing (it contains vitamins A, C and E) and has great staying power. It is also worth mentioning that all the crystals are applied by hand so it is high quality too.
I freely admit that I was not much of a flats girl, that is until I was introduced to these fabulous, comfy chic flats from Tieks. Tieks are incredibly high quality, fashion forward, made of the finest Italian leathers and have a signature turquoise split sole design that easily folds into your bag which makes it stand out from the rest. I totally love the metallic copper, pewter, black snakeskin combo that goes with everything. I also adore the super cute box that the flats come in with a sparkly flower on top, it’s a nice added touch. I’m hooked!
Paula Abdul recently collaborated with AVON to curate a wonderful collection of jewelry and accessories that was released this holiday season. I adore this Star Studded bag and have been carrying it everywhere lately! It’s the perfect size, I love the metallic star stud accents and it’s a totally versatile bag that you can wear three ways (handbag, shoulder or cross-body.)
The Forever collection also included some fabulous sparkly pieces of jewelry and my favorite of the bunch are these fine jewelry-like teardrop earrings in clear. They added the perfect sparkle to many of my holiday party outfits.
I am totally digging this rose gold pyramid studded wrap watch from La Mer Collections. It’s hip, a bit edgy and goes with everything. I also love the La Mer signature double wrap around band that makes this a watch and a bracelet. What a fashionable way to tell time!
