A #Jewelry Tradition
For three winter Sunday evenings beginning in mid-January and ending late February, I can be found popping some popcorn, opening a bottle of sparkling juice, positioning myself in the most optimal position in a big, comfy chair with a warm, plush blanket wrapped tightly around my legs and feet, laptop in lap, remote control in hand, ready to witness an annual Hollywood tradition: The Awards Season.
This year, beginning on January 15 with the Golden Globe Awards, January 29 for the Screen Actors Guild Awards and culminating with the Academy Awards on February 26, join me and a lively group of my jewelry-loving Twitter friends including the woman who got the whole party started, Jewelry.com's veritable blogger, @JewelryInsider as we once again offer our sometimes tough, always fun but bitingly honest critiques of the beads, baubles and bangles (or in recent years, the lack thereof) worn by the stars as they walk the Red Carpet before each show. We use the hashtags #GlobeJewelry #SAGJewelry and #OscarJewelry to keep up with the conversations and observations. The easiest place to keep up with all of the action is here. WARNING: Virtual drinking games have sometimes ensued but all in the name of beautiful jewels.
After last year's Golden Globes, I was inspired to put my jewelry styling skills to the test and offer some Luxe for Less style board alternatives (as seen in this post) for some of my favorite actresses using pieces from my own LUXE jewelry collection. This year, I will tackle the Oscars and hopefully introduce new items from my Spring 2012 collection before they hit my trunk shows and online boutiques. Stay tuned for my post here on Monday, February 27 and don't forget to join me for all of the award season fun on Twitter!
