Red Carpet to Real Life: Sequins

Claire-Foy-Dress-Golden-Globes-2017 (1)
Sequins are no stranger to the red carpet. In fact, along with glamour and elegance, sparkles have been a mainstay on the awards show circuit since Mary Pickford wore a beautifully embellished dress to accept her Best Actress Oscar at the second-ever Academy Awards in 1930. But this year glimmered brighter than most. Alongside the lace that’s been so popular of late and the Old Hollywood fit-and-fare silhouettes that are always a hit, dresses cloaked in monochromatic sequins from top to toe were a big hit.  Continue Reading

I’ve always been a jewelry girl. When I was young, I spent hours after school and during the summer crafting necklaces and bracelets from a rainbow-hued assortment of seed beads and crystals I kept meticulously organized in plastic tackle boxes. I toted my boxes with me from my mom’s house to my dad’s house and back again every other weekend. I think at one point I was making and selling jewelry to my friends at school. I’ve just always found a sparkling ring or color-pop earring to be the best, and often most economical way, to add my own personality to a look.

I still make myself jewelry sometimes (like these earrings and this bracelet), but I also love stocking up on fun pieces from BaubleBar. This post isn’t sponsored in any way; I’ve just been a fan and customer of the brand since 2013 and I always love talking about how great their pieces are, especially for the price. These shoulder-dusting cobalt tassel earrings are the newest addition to my jewelry box, and I love how much they move when I wear them! I like to wear my hair up in a crown braid when I wear these babies so they can really shine.

BaubleBar is currently having their big semi-annual sale with up to 75% off a bunch of pretty styles. I already purchased these earrings and this ring, and you can shop some of my other favorite sale pieces here:
