Movie Magic Madness

I love movies but because of my unpredictable schedule, away vacations and family responsibilities, I often can't find a free moment to get to the theater in the Spring and Summer but when Fall rolls around, an all-out cinema blitz begins in earnest for me and The Man. Friday date night takes on new meaning and is often comprised of a lovely dinner and a newly released movie. And there are some fascinating flicks on the horizon that I'm excited about. Be sure to check out my viewing list with links to early reviews above. 

**If you're in the Philadelphia, PA area, enjoy a luxe movie theater experience at the AMC Cinema Suites in West Chester or in New York City at their location on Broadway at 84th Street.

I try to keep my date night look comfy and stylish. A great shirt, skinny pants and high heeled booties are my typical uniform but I try to make it extra special by adding great jewelry like the Herringbone Cuff Bracelet and Bohemian Drop Earrings from our Gemmy Jewels Collection. (check out the Love The Look style board below) A fab handbag to carry the essentials, a spritz of a beloved scent (an anniversary gift from The Man - now my signature fragrance) and I'm ready for an evening of movie magic!

The Fab Five - September 2014


With Fall just around the corner, I'm embracing all the upcoming season has to offer. Granted, I had a wonderful Summer and will lament its departure but only briefly because this month is stacking up to be just as amazing. Here are 5 fab things that will help to make September a great one:

1.  Our Private Trunk Show season begins and we're crisscrossing the country to bring my Fall 2014 Handmade Jewelry Collection exclusively to our Insiders. Join us!

2.  Since Kale is THE veggie of the year, I'm looking forward to sharing my culinary expertise (home cooking at it's finest) by using it in more creative recipes.

3.  If you are decorating a new home or just looking for items that will update or freshen the one you've already lived in, you'll love the sublimely curated housewares and furniture collections on this beautiful site.

4. It's #NYFW New York Fashion Week time! The march of fine design begins September 4th. Watch here for our fave designers' hot runway looks for Spring 2015! 

5.  After a few team members spoke highly of this not-so-common book about living consciously and walking through your life while being fully aware of its utter beauty by a thoroughly engaging author, I had to Kindle it for this month's reading list.

Fall Into Denim


While watching some of the live streams of the Fall 2014 Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week runway shows, I didn't see much in the way of denim. (insert sad face emoji here) Has the durable material shown most commonly in its traditional blue hue lost its fashion favor? I think not! Denim will always be "in". I know some do have a love-hate relationship with this tricky fabric (i.e. Can I REALLY wear jeans to work or is this jacket special enough for evening?)  Dressed up or down, when it's worn right and of the best quality your money can buy, it can be an incredibly versatile and luxurious wardrobe staple. 

Think beyond jeans. Pencil skirts, tailored jackets, fierce shoes and handbags are all fashionable players in the denim game. And don't be afraid to do double denim (top & bottom). Just mix the washes like this or kick it up a notch with non-traditional colors. Add an interesting bangle bracelet for day or statement earrings for an extra special nighttime touch!

Color Craze: Rainbow Bright


My obsession with vivid, punch-you-in-the-face color continues. The fashion trend cycle always returns to timeless bright, rainbow color combinations associated with festive times but I've never been one to wait for trends. Since I seem to naturally gravitate toward vivid hues, my handmade jewelry collections have often included bright primary and eye-popping neon colors for all seasons. This Pinterest board is my vibrant homage to the many radiant inspirations I've discovered over time.

Do you dare wear bright for day or night? Fear not, these thrilling colors can be worn by anyone. The "less is more" rule definitely applies but you can be creative. While it takes an adventurous soul to wear this trend head to toe, feel free to liven a neutral look with accessories like rainbow sunglasses, a vivid pair of heels or a dash of brightly colored jewelry like the earrings from my classic collection shown on the style board below and available here. Be bold in brights!

The Fab Five - August 2014


As Summer winds down (don't shoot the messenger), I'm sure we're all looking for any way we can hold onto the best of the current season. But August is a great month (minus the dog days) to celebrate what's next. Here are 5 fab things to get excited about during the 8th month of the year:

1.  I've penciled in an appointment to sample this Target beauty discovery during my next at-home facial. Word on the street is these mini packets are filled with natural ingredients that really truly work. Buy them online here.

2.  Chadwick Boseman's portrayal of legendary baseball great, Jackie Robinson in 42 was phenomenal, so I'm looking forward to seeing him take on the King of Soul in this movie biopic.

3.  Good things come in 3's.... and 7's and 9's like these delicious new arm candy sets from our Gemmy Jewels Collection.

4. It's no secret that as a sports fanatic, this month begins one of my most favorite times of the year. The pigskin returns!

5. With Five Guys and Shake Shack, do we really need another chain burger joint in Philly? This one opens in August and is a "bare" necessity for it's exotic meats and organic goodness.
