Kendra Scott - Jewels


"A Girls Best Friend" 





Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential. Just what is the right amount?  Well, here are a few Forever Chic Style rules at your fingertips:

Basic Rules: 

  • Wear either real or faux jewelry.   
  • Engagement ring is always real and forefront. 
  • Ring on both hands.  It is best to limit two rings per hand.  Maybe engagement ring on one and two on another. 
  • Winning Combinations:  
    • Long earrings, no necklace, rings on both hands and one wrist with bracelet or bracelets. 
    • Stud diamonds or stud earrings, long chunky necklace or several strands and rings on one or both hands.   
    • Long earrings, short necklace and ring on both hands or just one. 
    • Diamond Studs - Either faux or real.  No one can tell the difference.

Tips: 

  • Less is best. 
  • Twirl around before leaving the room.  If jewels are swaying and glittering everywhere - you have overdone it. 
  • Long earrings and long necklaces make the eyes stray down. You want eyes to remain up and  highlight your face. Stay away from this combination. 
  • When traveling abroad - leave engagement ring at home.  In fact, all real jewelry should be left at home.  Why tempt fate with the real deal when faux is exceptional. 


My new favorite jewels are anything by designer Kendra Scott.  Here are my picks for now and the rest of 2018.  Have fun.

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
