Weekday Wardrobe: New Favorites

Weekday Wardrobe | Gem Gossip Weekday Wardrobe | Gem Gossip

Since coming back from Vegas and NYC, my days have been long and filled with writing and running all kinds of errands. From Sunday morning brunches, to post office runs, to family dinners, my style has been changing daily and almost always depends on what I have planned. Some days I'm lucky if I get a chance to breathe fresh air outside, while other days I've spent more time on the road in my car than normal...but that is what I like about being self-employed and I'm excited for the summer.

Most recently, I was playing in my jewelry box and for some reason or another a lightbulb went off--I took my collection of figas and strung them on my hardwire gold collar necklace. As soon as I put the necklace on I knew that this was one of my greatest moves I've ever made. I'm obsessed with the look and it totally caters to my collecting mantra by displaying my pieces perfectly.  I actually have 6 more figas that don't have jumprings, so I'm off now to get them put on by my jeweler. 

I've also been experimenting with different kinds of earrings to create a "full" look, meaning ALL the way up my ear. To achieve this look without the pain of multiple piercings, I suggest some comfortable ear cuffs. Some are more comfortable than others and it depends on the craftsmanship, so try them out--see if you're able to wear for a full day before committing to buy. 

In the first photo shown, I'm wearing a pair of ombré amethyst ear studs with jackets by Jewelmak. These are so cool and give me a pop of color, which is perfect for summertime. I kept it simple up top with 14k gold balls studs in various sizes, a Paige Novick diamond ear cuff and a vintage swirl motif ear cuff I found on Ruby Lane. 

The photo below shows off my figa necklace and a carved opal necklace I recently sold. My earring look is simple to recreate; two pearl stud earrings of various sizes and a gold huggie earring from Stacy Nolan.

Weekday Wardrobe: When Shoes Are Just As Important As Rings

Tobi.com | Gem Gossip Tobi.com | Gem Gossip Tobi.com | Gem Gossip Tobi.com | Gem Gossip Tobi.com | Gem Gossip Tobi.com | Gem Gossip

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. 

Thought this would be a different take on my normal Weekday Wardrobe posts and hope you like it! Here are the details on my two ring looks and you can shop my shoes below by clicking on the photos!

Lucite Look Rings:

  • elongated diamond ring from Miami Antique Show 2017
  • sapphire and diamond alternative engagement ring from Maejean Vintage, stone cut by TopNotch Faceting
  • gold wave ring from Cleopatra's Barge Fine Jewelry in Naples, FL
  • diamond elongated ring from Hampton Estate Jewelry
  • wide Eye of Warrior ring from Communion by Joy
  • various baby rings used as pinky rings and midi-rings

Feather Heel Rings: 

  • tiny cameo ring from eBay
  • mid-size cameo ring from Ageless Heirlooms
  • different sized baby rings on one pinky
  • "Feel the Love" pinky ring by Jessie V E
  • large Victorian onyx brooch converted into a ring

Weekday Wardrobe: Accessorizing Rings & Clutches

GemGossip.com

Lately I've been all about wearing my newest addition to my necklace collection--this 14k yellow gold thick collar that I picked up from Arrow & Anchor Antiques. We did a trunk show together and of course, ended up buying something from her gorgeous selection. When you're a jewelry lover (addict?) you tend to do that.

I've also been sorting through my vintage clutch collection, mostly which came from eBay and antique shops from my travels. Getting them out and pairing them up with different rings has been a fun thing to do, especially over the holidays. Wearing festive attire usually isn't my thing, but I want to add something fun and different to what I normally wear when I attend holiday parties, so having these clutches is perfect for my style. I thought it would be cool to incorporate them into my Weekday Wardrobe post for this month since I promised more of these posts. Hope you enjoy!

Weekday Wardrobe: 5 Ring Stacks + Necklace Layer Look

Weekday Wardrobe | Gem Gossip

You didn't think I forgot about the Weekday Wardrobe posts, did you?! Well, to be honest, I almost did. Promise I'll start being better about rounding up my weekly looks and putting them into blog posts. This month's ring stacks and jewelry looks have been fun, mixing and matching new finds and playing around more with charms and necklaces. I'm addicted to my black velvet choker and realized how much more chic it can make any necklace look when paired with it! Above, I'm wearing mine with my Starling Jewelry emerald necklace called the Colette Pave necklace. This cutie is so simple and perfect to wear every day. I like the craftsmanship of the piece--it is made really well and the chain is Italian. Emeralds are becoming my obsession. My longer chain holds my sentimental and favorite charms--my two Fox & Bond Minis, representing our wedding day and 1st year of marriage, and my Jean Jean Vintage Cachet Charm, which I've developed a habit for holding onto whenever I'm nervous.

Below you'll find five different ring stacks I've worn this week, let's start with Day One!
