Jewelry Inspired by The Golden Globes

For many years now, I’ve been live tweeting the Red Carpet for the major awards shows and then writing an article about the jewels worn by the stars. To be honest, this year I decided I just wanted to watch the show and enjoy it. (Boy was it a nice change!) In fact, I wasn’t planning on writing any article having to do with the Golden Globes at all. But that’s before a few stars wore jewelry that really inspired … Continue reading

Hair Jewelry: Keep it Cool This Summer

When I arrived at a client’s house last week to do some closet work, she greeted me at the door in one of her stylin’ tennis ensembles. As she turned around to head to the closet, I had to smile. She was sporting a ponytail holder that featured a HUGE faux green gem (like an enormous green diamond solitaire), and it spoke volumes — it showed her fun, colorful personality without her having to open her mouth. In addition, it was a creative … Continue reading

Oscars 2014 Red Carpet Report

When I reported on the Golden Globes earlier this season, I was definitely underwhelmed by the lack of glitz on the red carpet. Well my faith in the sparkle of Hollywood has been restored tonight. The carpet was just dripping in diamonds and embellished dresses, and thankfully studs were not the earring du jour. I think one of my favorite looks was worn by Cate Blanchett (kudos on the award!!). The luminescent paillettes on her nude-colored Giorgio Armani gown came … Continue reading

The Bachelor 2014: Jewelry Dish

I know I wasn’t the only one tuned in to The Bachelor during its season premiere on Monday. While this certainly isn’t a brain-enriching show, I consider it “mind candy” after a long day. Plus, I’m pretty content just watching Juan Pablo for the two hours! This season the lucky bachelor has 27 single hotties to choose from! As each woman steps from the limo, you know that you just can’t help giving her the once-over, from her head to … Continue reading

Downton Abbey Jewelry: Jewelry Judge

I, like many of you reading this post, am a HUGE fan of the British series, Downton Abbey. In fact, I’ve got Jan 5, 2014 on my calendar for the premiere of season 4 here in the States! The series starts towards the end of Edwardian England in 1912, and the third season ended around 1920. Aside from the perfectly cast actors and the compelling story lines, I eagerly await each episode to see what the characters are wearing. (Kudos … Continue reading

Druzy Headband: Jewelry Judge

While out to dinner one evening at Chuck’s in Ko Olina last week (such a luxury to eat al fresco in January!!), I came across a lovely sixteen year-old, who had a very cool outfit on — fitted dark-wash skinny jeans, a peach silk blouse with black detail, and grey suede wedges. I would describe her look as polished, a little preppy, yet with a nod to vintage. Her ensemble was topped off by a charming pixie haircut and a … Continue reading

Bejeweled Bun: Jewelry Judge

While on the escalator at Westfield Mall in San Francisco yesterday, I couldn’t take my eyes of the gal in front of me. I love how her casual bun was adorned with a couple jeweled hair pins. She looked as cute coming as she did going. Just that little pop of sparkle really added a lot to her whole look. I’m going to have to give some more thought to hair jewelry!
