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.

Monday's Favorite Things - The Blazer

Classic is KeyL'Agence
Recently, I cleaned out my closet and donated seven bags of apparel.   The items ranged from high quality constructed blazers that I have owned over a decade along with other clothes that no longer fit.  It was difficult to let go of so many beautiful and well cherished pieces.  However, I know someone out there will love the blazers, skirts and suits that were donated.  They will be used rather than languishing in my closet and collecting dust. 
At the end of Finding Nemo (2003).   Nemo and his pals state, "Now What?"
When you are done purging the aftermath in a wardrobe can be unnerving.  You may find yourself in Nemo's predicament and think "Now What?""Where are my blazers for those occasions I need them?" Of course, over the last 8 months we have been primarily house bound and without need of fancy apparel.  For me, I have lived in shorts, tees, jeans, cashmere pullovers, tennis shoes and boots.  My lovely blazers were neve…

Monday's Favorite Things - The Bootie

What I love this Week?- Bootie by Aquatalia"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." Coco Chanel


Rain, cold, wind and breezy days has spread across the Pacific Northwest.  Thus, sweaters, jeans, wool coats, leather gloves, boots and booties are making a fast entrance to daily life.   It is an exciting time of the year when the world changes to the glorious colors of fall ending the days of sun and warmth.  We eagerly pull out beautiful fabrics and exquisite apparel slated for the cold fronts on the horizon. 
My favorite boot brand is Aquatalia.   I love their tall boots and booties for the rain infused months that lay ahead.   The company is based in San Francisco, California.  All the boots are crafted in Italy, with meticulous care towards Italian shoemaking.  The fit is superb and comfort exceptional right out of the box.  Additionally, Aquatalia is waterproof and stain resistant even in suede.   Now, I would not wear these beautiful numbers during a snowstorm or on a day wh…
