So Rihanna, the disputable queen of "urban punk" fashion, was seen in London last week at the premier of "Inglorius Basterds" rockin' a layered (notice the trend?) mass of long, bright -and loud- pearls. Talk about statement jewelry! Her accessories were the main event- opting to offset the bling with an all black, monotone jumpsuit (another serious trend this summer). Pearls, lace, bright red lipstick...who else can make all these vintage elements look so modern? (I'm sure the mohawk has something to do with it...). Either way, it looks like whatever fashion risks she takes, Rihanna can do no wrong!
Want this look but lacking access to her closet? Or better yet...her bank account? See below for more options in a variety of price ranges...

All I can say is...WOW...Givenchy Fall 2009 Haute Couture...
Multiple pieces of layered statement jewelry are the centerpieces of these assembles, "accessorized" by sheer fabrics, ankle boots, and the love-them or hate-them harem pants. Not bold enough to try these out around the block? Stay tuned for more toned down options...
Hey*BLING* lovers! Are you ready for your first update? Ok here we go =)
Now...unless you've literally been living under a rock the past couple months, you've probably heard of Nicole Richie's new jewelry line-House of Harlow 1960-that's been taking Hollywood by storm. OHHHHH EMMMM to the GHEEEEE this collection is absolutely gorgeous!!! I'm not sure if she's sketching these pieces herself but the designs are composed of "intricately simple" (I just made that up-probably an oxymoron) geometric layouts with an integration of Aztec and Greek-like influences that are so in tune with the fashion of today. The collection is composed of various necklaces, bracelets, and rings but also includes cutting edge upper arm bracelets and head pieces. The most popular item so far seems to be the "Black Resin Necklace" that has graced the necklines of Paris Hilton, Amerie, Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie herself (bib necklace pictured above). The collection is super classy and very fashion forward. Very well done Nicole!
HOW TO WEAR
This collection is the perfect adornment to a backdrop of the ever so popular boyfriend tee; going well with a pair of cut-off shorts and gladiator sandals for a day of running errands or meeting up with a lunch date. You will look casually cool just like Nicole =)
I got most of these pics from Singer22.com. You can also view (and buy) more of the collection from that site.
Speaking of Amerie-LOVE her new song! Click the link to view video
Hey "Bloggers"! Ok I've never really done the blogging thing beyond myspace or facebook, so bear with me! Not really sure how to start this off but...here I go. 1st off, I am a jewelry FANATIC (hence the name). Serious fetish going on with this chick right here-so I decided to share my love with cyberspace =) I have a collection of about 200+ pieces ranging from cheap, trendy finds from Forever21 to designer finds like Kenneth Jay Lane and Amrita Singh. I love everything having to do with the bling! I'll be posting new random jewelry finds, designers I think are hot, the latest trends, outfit ideas and much more. I will also post as many pics as humanely possible. Enjoy!
