If you liked it then you should of put a ring on it

Accessory Statement: RINGS

You know when you're hungry, but you're not sure what to eat? "Do I want chocolate, something salty, something healthy?" You know you want something but you can't decide... Then you feel lazy- I don't want to make it, I don't want to order it/pick it up etc...

Those moods can take place with your closet as well. And when it happens- you can have a quick, safe plan that will totally cure your craving: rings.

So much better than buying a bunch of new clothes you'll be over in a hot minute. Cool-girl rings come in all shapes, sizes and price points! Vintage, contemporary, inexpensive... pile them on, you don't need to just wear one at a time. Mix and match metals, width, length and price points. You will be blown away with how many you can collect so quickly, and rings can completely alter your look, with little cost. (PS the CPW is out of control, unless they may start turning your finger green) a tip? buy an inexpensive style you are on the fence about, and if you fall in love, make it your life mission to find a contemporary, higher quality model.

Some great sites to check out for Ring hunting:

LA Market: the georgette

Day 3 of LA MARKET: the georgette

You've heard me talk about jumpers before... and my love for them... but I know half of you will stop reading here because its not your thing. You're not into it, you think you can't pull it off, you're too short, blah blah blah....
If there's every a jumper to try, its this one. Its actually designed to be either worn with flats, or to wear with platforms/wedges, with the flare being a little cropped, letting that true 70's inspiration come through.

It comes with the soft, silk-like feather-printed belt, but feel free to switch out and make it your own. Since its a v-neck and cinches at the waist, it flatters everyone. And petite girl, my adorable sister-in-law also rocked this jumper - in all of her 5'2'' goodness. She looked smashing. No more excuses. Its waiting for you..

LA MARKET: the campbell

So its a little delay in LA Market land...

Day 2 of LA Market: the Campbell.

Since length is still so strong for Spring, leave it to BB Dakota to make a fantastic long maxi cardigan, or "duster" whichever you'd like to call it - its fantastic. And it goes with everything! wear it now with your skinnies while the weather is a little cooler... transition it to the warmer months with your cut-off's and flat sandals. pair it with screen prints or solid, loose tee's and tanks... accessorize it, or let it speak for itself. You can even button it up and belt it, and wear it like a dress. It also comes in light cream. Go by now. You won't be disappointed.
