Fashion Advice

  • Can the Skinny Jean Live Again?

    At our studio in Scottsdale, we look beyond the jewelry and into the wide world of fashion (since it serves as the obvious backdrop to our beautiful pieces).

    As backseat fashionistas perusing the latest trends, we confess: we don’t like skinny jeans very much and were quite happy that they’ve fallen off the radar.

    But, for those who still love the overly clingy and breath-taking (literally) denim, we do like the reinvention of skinny jeans found in Refinery 29 recently.

     

    In this fashionable scenario, the skinny jeans become almost “leggings-like” giving the outfit a much more updated look.

    And may we suggest these earring that always pair nicely with casual fashion?

  • How to De-stuffacate your Wardrobe

    Less is more. We’ve all heard it but rarely believe it. So we often overbuy and fill our closets and drawers to the brim. Then we moan, “But I have nothing to wear!”

    This article points out that we often bury our best pieces with articles of clothing and jewelry that don’t mean as much to us, leaving us still feeling incomplete. So get de-stuffacting and uncover your favorite things!

    Tip 1: Give up the guilt (if you have any)
    It is not your fault and there is nothing wrong with you for buying so many things. From the earliest age, we are taught to be consumers – to look, buy, gather, hoard. Also, we get a very addictive chemical thrill every time we buy something – you know the feeling – even if the high doesn’t last.
    Don’t worry though; handled right, you’ll get a similar feel-good feeling once you’ve lightened your wardrobe.

    Tip 2: De-stuffocate with friends
    Overturning millennia of training in gathering is hard. Just as we are hard-wired, as evolutionary psychologists believe, to love sweet, salty, fatty foods, so are we hard-wired to want and value material things. If you do it with a friend or friends it’ll make it so much easier. You know how it’s much easier to tell a girlfriend that something looks good or bad on them, than it is to know if something looks good or bad on you? Well, it’s the same with things in the wardrobe. Throughout, compare and compete: if your friend has got rid of 30 things, see if you can get rid of 31.

    Tip 3: Minimalism in a minute: the bin-bag experiment
    This is the extreme version for brave (or desperate) people seeking instant change. Ideally with a friend, put everything – yes, everything – in black bin bags so your wardrobes are bare. Then, each day, as you need something, take it back out again. This way, you’ll find out what you actually need.

    Tip 4: Minimalism in a month
    If that feels too much or too weird, start small. Find one thing you really don’t want, need, have never worn, and get rid of it. The next day, find two things. The next, three things, and so on, for a month. (It’s best to start this on the first of the month, so the number of things you throw out is the same as the day on the calendar.) This game was created by The Minimalists, Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Milburn. They call it the Minimalism Game.

    Tip 5: You don’t need to be, or want to be, a minimalist to benefit
    You can also de-stuffocate by going through your wardrobe, taking things out, and making piles:

    (i) Things you’ve never worn – you can tell because the label’s still on, and they’re still shop pressed
    (ii) Things you haven’t worn for a year
    (iii) Things that are uncomfortable
    (iv) Things you have worn but you’ve grown out of
    (v) Things you hope to wear again some day

    If you’re taking your time, put them in separate bags, and put them in the loft. If you haven’t missed them in a month – or three months time – they have to go (or else, what’s the point in keeping them?).

  • Developing your Sense of Style in Four Easy (and Cheap) Steps

    Some people just seem to have that perfectly pulled-together look, even if they just rolled out of bed. But for most of us, we have to work a little to hone a sense of style.

    But the beauty of it? You don’t have to spend a fortune on your “look.” It can be done simply, basically (since all fashionable looks tend to be just that).

    1. Pick your best pieces. You know the items in your closet that are clearly keepers, like that skirt that fits just so or that shirt that always makes you feel like a million bucks when you wear it. Separate those pieces from the rest. (Then ask yourself, what are you doing with those “other” pieces!) Consider a wardrobe of only keepers, even if it’s smaller.

    2. Find a good hair stylist. (This one is often easier said than done.) Most stylish looks have a great haircut topping it all off. Figure out your hair type and what cut works for you and maintain it.

    3. Keep your skin healthy and clean. We’re wearing our birthday “suit” all of the time, right? Glowing skin that’s well maintained goes a long way to create a beautiful you. That doesn’t mean you need flawless skin. Just make sure you use good products, eat well, drink copious amounts of water and get sleep.

    4. Smile. Sure, you’ve heard this one before, but truly, a smile is magnetic and lights up any outfit. Don’t worry–you can fake one too. (A fake smile still has therapeutic effects.)
