The Contemporary Bride

Fresh. Sophisticated. Modern. The Contemporary Bride is all of these and more. She's supremely polished with an eye for clean lines and sophisticated airiness, but there's a soft, romantic side to her. She loves sleek elegance. Filling space just for the sake of it is not her style. There's something sublimely sacred about openness and anything that allows love and light to shine though.

While her wedding colors may be muted or neutral, they are alive with bright simplicity. Her wedding jewelry may be minimalist but it's charm and chicness match her perfectly tailored matte wedding gown, perhaps with no veil. It's all in the details for this bride, like the clear symmetry of the Alana Bracelet or the near-perfect alignment of Pearls in the Giselle Necklace or any of the other bridal jewelry shown below. Pure and simple.

Trend Spotting: Animal Prints

I never thought the fervor over animal prints in fashion would last. But it's stronger than it's ever been for Fall 2013. It's been seen on the runways during Fashion Week on everything from calf skin boots to nail polish, bomber jackets to evening gowns. Beautiful to look at but often difficult to wear, you can choose to drape yourself in it head to toe (please don't, unless you wear it like this), select one main item like a skirt or a top, or you can select an accessory or two to compliment neutral colors for a sophisticated look.

My Holiday 2013 Jewelry Collection will feature a few necklaces and earrings in this dramatic trend, like #4 the Animale Necklace in the style board below plus some fabulous metals that mix and match perfectly with animal prints. New items will preview online in our Bauble Lounge and will be available exclusively at our Private Trunk Shows beginning November 6. 

Which print strikes your fancy - Leopard, Zebra or my favorite, Giraffe?

Color Craze: CARNIVAL!

Fun doesn't even begin to describe the colors of the celebration of Carnival. Held every year across the globe around February, it is a non-stop party filled with over the top excitement. The fashion trend cycle will inevitably return to the bright, rainbow color combinations associated with this festive time but I've never been one to wait for trends. Since I seem to naturally gravitate toward vivid hues, my jewelry collections have often included bright primary and eye-popping neon colors.

Fear not, these thrilling colors can be worn in every day life. 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 a neon clutch, a vivid pair of heels or a dash of brightly colored jewelry like pieces shown below from my classic collection available at my online shop.
