Every girl needs a little bit of bling in her jewelry wardrobe; wouldn’t you agree?
Although I don’t consider myself to be the kind of girl who dons sparkly jewelry every day, I absolutely LOVE a bit of bling for a special occasion. I wish I could report that I’ve successfully selected a dress to wear to my brother’s wedding next month, but I’m still stuck on that task. Regardless of the dress I select though, I know I’ll be in need of some sparkle to add to it, as all of the dresses in my final selection are pretty much solid color fabrics. I like the idea of being able to pair the dress with a statement necklace or bracelet to take it up another notch.
So, today I rounded up a selection of sparkly items to satisfy the magpie in you. Which piece would you choose?
As I was perusing my calender recently, it became quite clear to me: December is just a few short weeks away. And…in the month of December it just so happens that my little brother is getting married.
…that means I’m going to need a dress. The special occasion dresses I have in my closet are pretty much all for spring/summer wear, so a mid-December wedding doesn’t seem to align with them. Thankfully, the holiday dresses are popping up in stores everywhere, so I should have a bit of a selection at least. Of course, I’m having a hard time making up my mind on what I want to wear. The wedding is just a few days before Christmas, so a holiday-type dress would probably be appropriate. However, I am hemming and hawing on whether I should get a more “practical” dress instead. It really could go either way. The wedding is here in Florida, so it won’t be overly cold; I will most likely be comfortable in a knee length dress. Sleeves aren’t a necessity either, as I could pair a sleeveless dress with a nice sweater or light jacket for the ceremony (I happen to have a gorgeous gold Tahari jacket that would be perfect for the occasion if needed). So, the options abound! Right now, here is a selection of the dresses I’ve had my eyes on.
Which would you choose?
I really need to pencil in a shopping trip to Nordstrom in the near future. Although it has been available online on Nordstrom.com for a while now, the Topshop line is now available in stores as well…and the Tampa Nordstrom happens to be one of those locations!
I’ve been perusing some of the options online, and I think I will definitely have to take a peek in person very soon. Between dresses, pants, shoes, accessories, and makeup, there are so many options to consider…
Have you had the chance to check out some of the Topshop items in person yet? Do you have your eye on any piece in particular?

Something very exciting arrived in the mail for me yesterday.
Yep. After 3 years of using my iPhone 4, it was time to upgrade. I somehow managed to go for OVER 3 years without cracking, scratching, or needing to replace my phone because it was broken. Miracle? Most likely. But in the past few months, I knew when the newest version of the iPhones were released, it was time for me to move on to bigger and better things.
I wasn’t expecting the phone to arrive so quickly (I ordered it on Sunday and it arrived on Wednesday), so now I am scrambling at what might be the most important phone accessory decision: which case do I get? Since my current phone is an iPhone 4, my case won’t fit on the 5s…so I need to purchase a new one. But there are SO MANY OPTIONS out there: how do I ever go about deciding?!?!
So, as I mull it over, I thought I’d round up a collection of the top 20 iPhone 5 cases that are catching my eye at the moment. Do you have a favorite from the bunch? I feel myself leaning more than one way…I love the Mara Hoffman Third Eye printed case, but also love the simplicity of polka dots or chevrons. And even though the tassels would probably be a mess to deal with, that case from Anthropologie is seriously amazing. I can’t decide!!!
Tell me: which case would YOU choose? Any others to suggest?
