Tiffany & Co Silver Ball Earrings

I have very few items that I wear every day, or pretty darn close to every day. One of these items is a pair of Tiffany & Co silver ball earrings my friend Jenn gave me as a wedding present for standing up as her bridesmaid in her wedding.

Jenn has been a dear friend since college. We joined the same sorority and have remained friends ever since. The gift she gave me was so perfect because it exudes class, style and luxury all at once. They are the large silver ball earrings and are the perfect size to wear daily and go with literally everything. I also mix silver and gold all the time, so in my book, they match all my jewelry. I will never forget the lovely speech Jenn gave as she handed the gift to me. She told all in attendance what my friendship meant to her and what qualities I possess that she loves. It was a tender moment that brought us all to tears and when I wear them, I always think of her.

These are the perfect gift for women of all ages and come wrapped in that iconic teal box with a white bow. They are affordable and with the holidays just around the corner, I hope this post inspires you to buy them for some lucky lady in your life.

The ball earrings retail for $150 for the 8mm and $175 for the 10mm.

The Need For Tweed

Tweed is a classic fabric that exudes class and refinement. Coco Chanel comes to mind when I see tweed. The knobby material intricately woven in jackets, skirts, and shorts matched with pearls is the definition of a classy outfit.

Tweed is a rough, unfinished woollen fabric of a soft, open, flexible texture.  It is made in either plain or twill weave and may have a check or herringbone pattern. The multi color effects are obtained by twisting together differently coloured woollen strands into a two- or three-ply yarn.

I wear my tweed jackets with denim and skirts and love a tweed short with tights and a blouse. I often toss on a strand of pearls to perfectly compliment the look or edge it up a bit with an ear jacket and stacked bracelets. Which ever combination you choose, a tweed item is sure to fancify any outfit you choose.

All That Glitters Is Gold

I am currently obsessed with gold jewelry. Chunky, bold statement necklaces, vintage door knocker Chanel earrings, layered chain necklaces, delicate stackable rings and bracelets, bangles, ear jackets, and studs. More is more in the case of gold jewelry.

I’m not saying wear everything all at once, but tastefully pairing the gold together to best suit your mood and outfit. I was recently invited to the Jacquie Aiche showroom to view the collections and partake in the ultimate jewelry sale. I had been coveting the spiked gold ear jacket and ruby ear piece ever since spotting the pair on Kate Mara. The timing was serendipitous and I was able to snag an ear jacket of my own at a fraction of the price. I was reeling with excitement. My friend Jen and I were like kids in a candy store, scooping up all the pretty treasures to try on and purchase. To our delight, they were even applying gold jewelry tattoos in the back garden for the party. Our inner Bohemian Goddesses were let out that day to shine.

When it comes to jewelry I tend to follow the rules of statement necklace, small stud earring, delicate bracelets, maybe a small ring. Layered delicate necklaces, maybe one has an initial, small stud, stacked bracelets optional. Bold earring, one delicate necklace, stacked rings if you must. The options could go on and on, but the point is statement earrings or statement necklace is the rule. Choose one bold piece to complete your outfit as if it were the icing on the cake, the rest of the jewelry are just the sprinkles.

My favorite places to buy gold jewelry from are Jacquie Aiche (for everything), Natalie B (for vintage locket pieces), and EF Collection (for delicate earrings).
