Christmas Dreaming A Little Early

“So I’m doing, my Christmas dreaming, a little early this yearrrrrrr…” 
I couldn’t resist these beautiful diamonds from Anjolee jewelry when they sent me their website and asked me to review it. So here are some lovely diamond choices should a loved one be looking to gift you with something sparkly this year. If so, you’re in luck, scroll to the end of the post for a discount. If not, do some dreaming with me about Christmas party outfits with extra sparkle! 
Here are three outfits I’d simply LOVE to wear to holiday parties this year…or to find under the Christmas tree! 
This is my absolute favorite outfit and SO perfect for the holidays. Then wear it again at Valentine’s Day, of course! The skirt, the bow shoes, and a simple top…to die for. The unexpected? Lip print, of course. So very Schiaparelli
This is such a grown-up outfit and I love the luxe textures and details. Nothing like leather pants, leopard print booties and a sumptuous top and clutch for the holidays. The unexpected? Leather pants at a cocktail party. Daring, darling!
This is so cute and party-perfect. I’d love to wear this for my birthday in January! Ladylike and lovely. The unexpected? Arrive with a black cape to top it all off. Oolala.
Anjolee also has customizable Gemstone bracelets that make great Christmas presents too! 
AND as a special treat, here is a code for 5 percent off your purchase (since we’re talking high prices here, this discount is totally worth it): Anjolee5

Saturday Projects

Hello dears! It’s Saturday, and around these parts, that usually means a few projects! 

Fixing the zipper and a spot or two on a new vintage dress! I drool over that color!!!!

Installing my new coat rack minus drill/level/stud finder. But it’s nothing a little costume jewelry, a jade-colored screwdriver, and some muscle {thank you, bootcamp workout weight lifting as of late} can’t handle.
{yes I know the background picture isn’t centered! it’s still a work in progress!}

And some sewing…well, actually, this happened awhile ago, but I haven’t shared it yet. 
And, of course, chillin’ since I still feel sorta sick. What are you up to this weekend, loves?
Be well and have fun!

Right Hand Rings

I’m so excited that I’ve finally found a way that I ENJOY wearing my right-hand ring finger ring! It’s a lovely little watermelon tourmaline stone that my best friend gave me when I graduated with my Master’s. My last project on campus was to make this simple sterling setting for it completely myself in the jewelry studio. I call it my “You Gotta Be” ring. You know that song? “You gotta be bold, you gotta be strong, you gotta be wiser…” well, that song is MY song (and my mom’s). They don’t play it on the radio very often, so we almost always hear it when we feel like we need to hear it, and it is such a good feel-good get-back-up song. 
If you haven’t heard it, here it is, in all of it’s 90s glory:

But I digress. Anyway, my ring. I just never felt comfortable wearing it on it’s own. It would twist around, and just felt—out of place, since I don’t wear any other rings on my right hand on a daily basis. And I’ve had a little “bubble ring” for a few years, but it always sort of hurt my thumb (where I usually wear it), and it never crossed my mind to wear it anywhere else.

Then I saw this lovely picture from Joanna Goddard on some other blog (sorry, totally forgot where), and it just clicked into place for me. I love wearing these two together. Just love it! 
My “You Gotta Be” handmade ring and my “bubble ring” from a local craft fair…I prefer the bubble ring underneath the tourmaline {also note to self: shine up my sterling pieces, they are looking grubby}
Also on the subject of rings, I was in a jewelry store last weekend, and the lady told me I had nice, slender and long fingers. I looked at her like she was crazy. This is actually the second time someone has told me that, but I highly disagree, and have always thought my fingers were fat. So I’m pretty sure jewelers just tell you that so you buy their rings and think your fingers are slender and pretty. 
And also on the subject of rings, I’m totally wanting this little one now.
