Fashion Fools?

20140402-204659.jpg
If you’re at all tuned-in to the fashion blogosphere, you probably witnessed Cupcakes and Cashmere’s April fool’s tease: The Statement Anklet. While the 4/1 post date was a pretty obvious indication that we were being tricked, I have to admit that I’m actually a little bit upset that this “trend” is a hoax! After all…those ubiquitous statement necklaces of yesteryear HAVE been taking up more space in your jewelry box than on your neck as of late, no? Plus, nothing jazzes up a bare leg like some jewels, right? ūüėČ K, maybe not, but I’m all about a little ankle icing every now and then. I mean THESE?! Kind of fabulous. Honestly, if this trend catches on, I won’t hate it.
Were you a victim of any April Fools shenanigans yesterday? Any similarly awful-but amazing styles you secretly love?

Fashion News: A Mean Girls Jewelry Line is Happening!

Mean Girls came out¬†10 years¬†ago. 10! Insane, right?¬†Really, it’s about time that someone dedicated wearables to the most quotable movie of our generation, and Stella & Bow has done just that. Co-creator Lauren Brokaw notes,

“Most all of our favourite movies have been capitalised upon, via clothing, home goods, fashion accessories – except for Mean Girls.¬†For its 10th anniversary, we wanted to pay homage to our favourite movie, which has provided countless hours of entertainment and fun.”

The aptly-named “Burn Book Collection” features a range of jewelry inspired by the film which will be available for purchase online starting in February. Each piece is named after a character in the movie–Aaron Samuels included–and many feature nods to the Mean Girls script. Bracelets that say “fetch”, hair clips that are “full of secrets”, and a pink gold bangle that says “Wednesday”? Totally in. Peep the line in it’s entirety over at Vogue News.

How do you feel about Mean Girls jewelry? Will you be buying any of Stella & Bow’s pieces? Can you believe it’s been 10 years?!¬†

Critters + Clothes: One Very Glam Ostrich

This gem popped up on my Pinterest feed and I knew I¬†had¬†to share. Ostriches totally freak me out (I mean guys–those eyes? Necks? General birdiness? UGH!) but this one is pretty classy. Long lashes, cascading strands of pearls,¬†and¬†a tiara? Glam after my own heart. If this pic is making you crave pearls of your own, shop HERE for a killer selection. I never thought I’d take fashion queues from a bird, but there’s a first time for everything ūüėČ

I am–and have always been–a ring girl. My jewelry piece of choice, I’ve rocked statement rings forever. Habitually.¬†Far before I ever had a rock on my finger. While tasteful “right hand rings”, midi rings, and thumb rings are awesome additions to any woman’s jewelry wardrobe, the oft-overlooked essential for any accessory lover is definitely¬†the statement ring.¬†Not only do they provide the perfect focal point for just about any outfit, but a good one also functions as a self defense device!…or at the very least, a quality man repeller ūüėČ While we don’t recommend taking the editorial route and adorning each of your fingers with massive cocktail rings, ONE is a must. Have one yet?¬†If not, here are a few great places to start your search!

Buy This Now: The Macaron Box

Sometimes, something is so cute you just want, no¬†need¬†to buy it, even if you had no intention of making a purchase. Just because. You really, really want it. It’s SO CUTE! Well, Mieuxs, the Macron Box from Urban Outfitters recently inspired one such moment with me. Confession time: I’ve never actually¬†eaten¬†a French Macaron, but I’ve always thought they were totally adorable food items. I mean, teeny tiny pastel-colored sandwiches?! They’re almost too cute to eat, right? Well, that’s why the macaron box is¬†perfect. I picked up the lavender shade of the trinket box at my local UO…It seems ideal for holding just about anything small: change, pills, fortune cookie fortunes, extra buttons, whatever. Personally, I’m planning to use mine for travel jewelry storage–the macaron is the perfect size for toting all of my rings. It fits more than you’d expect!¬†If you’re looking for a cute pick-me-up or a chic party favor,¬†definitely¬†check out the macaron box!¬†They come in six colors, are only $10, and you’ll still be enjoying it long after all that’s left from your¬†real¬†macarons is crumbs.

I can't get over how cute this little guy is. Best $10 purchase ever.
