Bang on. Of course, we all have those fashion pieces that we truly adore. The big beads, the colorful charms, the stones and the chains.. we make up our best outfits using some key pieces.
But we never forget our classic pieces. Usually, they are our pieces of jewelery that our most important to us. They have sentimental value, and have belonged to us for so long, that they are almost a part of us. Some have stories, some remind us of special people, and some are just to pretty to not wear every day. I never see Kaylee Pare without her signature rings, or Ariela Moyal without her Tiffany’s key. Some things just become part of our everyday style, where we feel naked without them. Here is a post on my favorite and most important pieces : )
What jewelry do you wear every day?

Crayola and Studs August 26, 2010
My bestie’s bday was this past weekend… and not only did we have a fabulous time, but I have to say we had FABULOUS outfits!
I wore a french connection crayola box inspired top, paired with a multi chain and coin metal necklace, a black fitted bdg skirt, and the most sexual Sam Edelman pumps studded and jeweled on the back counter and down the heel. I am truly, madly, deeply, in love with them. I swiped my card seconds after I had them on my feet… but after wearing them for just a few short hours (not to mention I hairsprayed the back counter to keep the jewels secure, and even put clear nail polish over the clamps) I lost 5 of the jewels!! 😦 😦 They weren’t cheap – so back to Browns they went. At least I have picture proof that I once owned these amazing pieces of ART!
Miss Kaylee wore a bcbg dress and necklace, a banana republic bracelet, and sexy black nine west pumps. Looking drop dead gorgeous – as usual. Check her out here!!
I figured I would do some PR for both our blogs by doing my first outfit post. Let me know what you guys think!
Hot Mess May 27, 2010
With the recent beautiful weather in the 514 this past week, how could you not want to be wearing the brightest clothes you can find? I’ve been on the hunt for some hot pink recently, and although I haven’t fully committed myself due to time and budget constraints, these are some looks that I’m currently lusting. Isabel Marant’s Spring 2010 RTW were oh-so-inspiring, I included some of my favorite pieces from the show, but click here for the entire collection 🙂

Floral and the Faun May 15, 2010
Ok fellow fashionistas, I started a blog and now I have to commit to making it great. It’s been a while since my first post.. but I’m back, and I just spent a decent amount of money this past weekend at Zara on some new summer clothes. Florals are everywhere, and the variety of patterns that you can indulge yourself in is almost overwhelming. In my opinion, there is no better way to feel pretty and joyous in the summertime. I have to admit that although I do not consider myself a girly girl, florals are probably my favorite clothing patterns.
Although some of us have figured out the best ways to mix and match patterns to look as fashion-forward and trend-setting as possible, others still cringe at the idea of wearing patterns that we may have seen our grandparents sporting back in the day. If you feel granny-like wearing floral patterns, remember that there are many ways to freshen up this look. Accessories and different fits are the greatest ways to maximize swag and sexiness when wearing such items.
The easiest way to pull off this look is with accessories. If you want to try out some flower power and keep the look low key, try wearing a simple outfit and adding a pop of colour with a fun scarf or hair accessory. I posted my top pics in terms of accessories, but visit ALDO ACCESSORIES for a little taste of floral heaven.. you will not be disappointed!
The following pieces can be found at a store near you.. without breaking the bank. I navigated the waters of the world wide web to bring you some of the best deals and best bang for your buck.
If you want to go bigger, try a floral cardi or dress. For an ultimate fashion statement, make your bottom the focal point of your outfit by opting for floral patterned jeans, leggings, or a skirt. There are ways to tone down a garden inspired canvas, for example if you opt to rock a floral mini (with the high liklihood that it was also be fitted), try pairing it with black cardi, or a cool belt. Doing so will add instant youth to your look. Here are some great finds:
Like a Virgin… May 3, 2010
So after following my favorite fashion blogs religiously for about a year now, I’ve decided the time has come to start my own. Every day, I find myself inspired by something and wanting to share it with someone. Up until now, I’ve turned to my trusty blackberry to bbm my besties; now I want to extend the reach to anyone interested in fashion who may come across this blog. It’s my first time blogging, and I am continuously fascinated by the one and only Madonna, so I was inspired to share her most recognizable look, which came from the “Like a Virgin” era (this title also happens to express quite accurately my experience in blogging). I LOVE wearing lots of jewellery together. It makes a statement even if you’re only wearing jeans and a t-shirt. In my opinion it’s the best way to jazz up a casual outfit.
