Budget Stylista: Liven Up That Winter ‘Drobe

I get it. With winter carrying on for another 6 weeks your life really does feel like Groundhog Day since you wear the same thing day after day...after day: jeans and a black top, or sometimes, if you’re feeling a bit crazy, jeans and white one. After the novelty of a cute winter ‘drobe wore off (like the 2nd week of negative temps and slushy snow), it’s hard to put any effort into looking presentable and unique.

It’s On: Aldo Accessories vs. Forever 21 vs. Icing

It’s the holidays - a time for family, good food and, most of all, great parties. But what is all of this without a great outfit? And I mean, sure - the sexy dress, the hot boots, the plush sweater, the perfect jeans; they all make a lasting impression, but it's nothing if you don’t have the right accessories. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, hats, rings and even belts all make an outfit pop.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Ettika Neon Bracelets

This season, the fashion world is all about neon and bright colors. Yes, even during the winter. Bright tights under dark skirts, bright purses to add a splash of color to any outfit... I like to think designers like Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg and Christian Siriano are doing their part to put an end to seasonal depression. And I applaud that.

10 Things We Should Ban Instead Of Books

Having just "celebrated" banned books week in America, I started thinking about the importance of reading, the beauty of stories and how much books enrich all of our lives. And most of my thoughts came back to one single theme: W.T.Eff?

The Budget Stylista: Don’t Be Fooled by the Rocks That I Got

Jewelry can make or break an outfit. This is fact. It's a great way to spice up your usual uniform (jeans, black v-neck, black flats - I know it all too well), assuming, of course, that you don't go overboard and look like you went shopping in your grandma's closet (tchotchke heaven).

10 Summer Bangle Bracelets to Brighten Your Look

For a quick style update, add a bangle or two. Or three. Or four. These versatile pieces can be stacked, mixed, and worn with anything! If you're wearing a solitary bangle, make sure it contrasts somewhat in color and texture to the rest of your outfit. For example, pair a beige wooden bangle with a pink and white floral dress.

I love things that sparkle, so it's obvious that I am head over heels in love with these rings from Myra Elizabeth. Made-to-order with bands of sterling silver and authentic Swarovski crystals and pearls, these beauties will surely outshine anything within a mile radius.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: The Corkboard Jewelry Holder

I don't know how it happened really, but over the years I've accumulated quite a large jewelery collection. I think a lot of it came from my Bat Mitzvah, when I got more bracelets than I knew what to do with (oh what I would give to trade all that in for cold, hard cash). Still, today I'm lucky to have a very impressive jewelery collection.
