Guys, never mind that the dresses were awesome, the jewels were downright, outrageously drool worthy.
Here are my swoon-for-it favorites:
Multiple rings for the young ladies (Vanessa Hudgens and T. Swift)
Vintage art deco inspiration (Jaime King, Molly Sims, Jennifer Lawrence)
Knock your socks off, statement necklace on Sofia Vergara
I like stars, horseshoes and rainbows in the marshmallow form, but I love evil eyes, wishbones and clovers in silver, gold and platinum.
What can I say? I have a sweet tooth and like nice things!
With Yoga, Kabbalah, and good fashion superstition sharing the limelight with the ancient and traditional faiths, the way we find luck, good favor, and a little bit of blessings now comes with bling.
These tokens and charms veer from the traditional and favor the fashionable, so they are more Saturday errands than Saturday’s sacred texts, but I love finding a personal way to accessorize. Here are some of my favorites:
Lucky Charms from L-R: Jennifer Zeuner Long Skinny Good Luck Hamsa Necklace at Singer22, Alex and Ani – Lifetime of Luck Expandable Wire Bangles at Couture Candy, Anna Beck ‘Gili’ Clover Necklace at Nordstrom, Jennifer Zeuner Mini Hamsa Curb Bracelet at Charm & Chain, Ileana Makri Evil Eye Bracelet at Barneys New York, Dream Mullick Wise One Bangle at Max & Chloe, Jennifer Meyer Wishbone Studs at Ylang23
Where do you find your luck?
In any mountain town, or Disney gift shop, you’ll be likely to find barrels of “gem stones”. My sister and I collected them, I think with the intention of using them for something really fabulous.
Now I wish I had them. For early spring, I am really loving the look of rough cut, jagged stones on Jewelry.
I have seen a few examples in boutiques around town, and for a celebrity comparison Cameron Diaz in 2007 really comes to mind.
As Ms. Diaz illustrates the bold, oversized and natural stones add a playful sensibility to even the most dramatic gown. They have a unique and interesting sparkle that seems more unique and less fussy. Besides, with a good tan these pieces are a stunner.
Warm weather, where are you?
>My niece Isabella loves the “gummies.” They could be jelly beans, gumdrops, worms of any kind, but she likes them sweet and she likes them colorful, and who could really blame her?
If you’re not five years old, or if you’re desire for style matches your need for sugar this might hit the spot.
I am loving the sweet and really playful nature of this necklace and it’s “wear anywhere, with anything sensibility.” It’s all the delicious fun without the cavities!
