Bauble of the Week

Rhinestone ribbons loop around to create this stunning cocktail ring from Chloe + Isabel. New Year’s Eve is fast approaching (can you believe it?) and your champagne toast will be much more dazzling with this ring atop your finger.

Review: Alilang Jewelry

The holidays are the perfect excuse to pile on the baubles (also my M.O. for the Christmas tree) and purchase new gems. I try to stick to a single new standout piece each season, but I’m easily tempted along the way - especially when it comes to affordable ways to upgrade a look. Alilang is a must-visit resource for jewelry that won’t blow your December budget. 

Shopping at Alilang can be a little overwhelming; there are a lot of options to choose from. The time it takes to sift through everything is worthwhile, though. I’m very happy with the quality of the items Alilang sent over for me to try (above). Unlike some other ultra-affordable retailers, the rhinestones are secure and the pieces are free of that telltale metallic smell of a cheap piece. Of the items I tried, the crystal cluster necklace is my favorite. It’s versatile and looks more expensive than $25. 

Have you tried anything from Alilang? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Splurge or Save: Embellished Sweater

An embellished sweater is one of fall’s hardest working pieces. You’ll get a surprising amount of mileage out of it: to the office with a pencil skirt, out for drinks with stilettos, and with jeans on the weekend.

Splurge: J.Crew, $118
Save: Dorothy Perkins, $59

Sartorial Steal

Given how quickly Jeweliq items sell out, I didn’t want to wait until Sunday to share this necklace as the "Bauble of the Week." An on-trend Peter Pan collar mixed with rhinestones and turquoise? I’m in!

Outfitted - The Details

Every now and then a pair of shoes come along that are too perfect to pass up, like these Kate Spade “Cora” loafers. The sparkles are irresistibly feminine, but the conservative shape keep the shoes from being too over-the-top for daytime outings.

Sartorial Summary
Top: Banana Republic (similar) // Skirt: Gap // Bag: Coach (vintage, but current version here) // Shoes: Kate Spade // Watch: Target 

Note: If you’re interested in the shoes, go down a half size. I normally wear a 7 in all Kate Spade shoes, but wear a 6.5 in these.
