Entries in jewelry stylist (3)
The life of an entrepreneur: forever in motion, on the go, and fast-paced. Sometimes you need your jewelry to be that way too! I'm always on the hunt for something I know I can throw on and automatically look good, something I can style with a variety of different outfits, and something that is timeless and will withstand a hectic lifestyle. The piece of jewelry that does it for me is my Dana Seng birthstone initial charm necklace, without a doubt! It goes with just about anything...when I put it on I already feel put together...and the best part is that it was made for me! I picked out the letter I wanted and the gemstone I wanted--D for Danielle (my first name) and sapphire for my birthstone (and luckily blue is a color that goes great with almost my entire wardrobe).
Dana Seng Jewelry prides itself on creating jewelry that fits this exact remedy--for "every style" and for "every woman." I thought it would be fun to see how three different women style their own Dana Seng Jewelry pieces, so I took three Nashville entrepreneurs (myself included) and without any direction, told everyone to style their piece with what fits their lifestyle and how it fits in their everyday look. It was so interesting to see how a simple initial gemstone necklace or ring could be worn in different ways, suit unique styles and become a staple to someone's wardrobe. One thing is for sure, we all agreed how simple, yet statement-making our birthstone initial pieces are and how much they've become an everyday occurrence within our style.
Let's find out more:
By day, I'm writing my blog Gem Gossip, editing photos, pulling ideas and planning my next move...by night, I'm cooking the latest Blue Apron, catching up on Shameless, playing with my dogs and most likely ripping out carpet somewhere in my house. Even if there are days where I don't leave my office, I like to at least throw on a piece of jewelry that makes me feel good and oftentimes it is my Dana Seng Jewelry initial necklace. My style is casual, always pants (I've never been a dress-wearer, but I'm trying) and I love a good blouse, like the one I'm wearing. I mostly wear vintage or antique jewelry, and my initial necklace from Dana Seng fits in perfectly.
When she's not busy building her photography empire, Lauren Newman, a Florida-born, California-dreaming entrepreneur is exploring Nashville, always on the lookout for new places to shoot. Photography is her passion and so is traveling. Her style is romantic with an edge, often pairing a pretty dress with a leather jacket. Her Dana Seng Jewelry is an initial birthstone ring--she chose an L for her first name, done in garnets for her birth month of January. It pairs perfectly with her other gold, delicate rings and is exactly her jewelry style. She likes wearing rings when she's out on a photoshoot because every time she clicks the camera, they sparkle!

Documenting her daily outfits and inspirations has been something that has come natural for Nashville fashion blogger Alyssa. She has been writing Dreaming Trees since 2014 where her creativity flows and her bohemian style is put front and center. Her Dana Seng birthstone initial charm necklace easily transitions from her nine to five day job, to her photoshoots she executes for her blog. She chose an A for her first name set with Peridot for her August birthday in a necklace. As you can see, mixing her initial necklace with her usual Southwestern silver rings and other delicate gold necklaces fits her style and she makes it her own! Whether Alyssa is wearing a vintage dress or a new trendy designer, her Dana Seng necklace can blend with either and easily layer with other jewelry.

If you know me or read my blog, it is apparent that I love jewelry, especially rings. When it comes to fashion--like clothing and accessories--I'm the type of person to look for a deal or purchase online at places that feature trendy clothing mostly under $100, often called "fast fashion." I look at jewelry as investment pieces, and I know fashion and accessories can be as well, but I have a tough time putting my money into cotton fabric and other materials. Gold is gold and diamonds are diamonds!
In that same breadth, I've been really into buying shoes lately and experimenting with different styles. They truly can change an entire look, from a simple outfit to a memorable one! I'm obsessed with these two pairs I recently got from Tobi.com -- the Alie Nude Lucite Peep Toe Booties & the Faye Feather Ankle Strap Heels. I took a pair of fishnet socks and wore them underneath the lucite booties to give the look some texture--and the feathers are just so pretty. I love feathers in fashion; like a splash of feathers on a shoe like this or a small clutch purse done in feathers--totally statement-making.

My sister had a photoshoot for her bio page on Fashion News Live, where she is the editorial supervisor and producer. I was happy to let her borrow one of my rings--the antique onyx ring in white gold. Although my sister has the eye for putting together an amazing outfit being a stylist, I think my suggestion of the ring was perfect for her outfit. Congrats Alisha, have fun at Miami Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week!
