You Style The Day – Carrie’s Silver Accessories

Today, Carrie from Canada (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to be exact. Say that five times in a row, I dare ya!) is show casing beautiful bracelets and necklaces that she’s hand crafted. Love the initials in the necklace and those bobbles on the bracelet are fantastic. I think I speak for all of us when I say “Where can I pick myself up one of these?!”  Great designs! Thanks for sharing Carrie!

Carrie Says: I’ve been making jewelry for years, but this year I finally found someone to teach me how to solder silver! It’s pretty easy & brings a new dimension to what I can make (in past I used silver wire & just twisted – also fun, but I need to keep learning). 

I love working with silver & gemstones & I like the imperfect look (imperfect just like me). It looks handmade & I think it has a little personality (aka mistakes…). 

In any case, I love doing it & the results are fun too!

You Style The Day – Elaine’s Jewels

Today, Elaine from New Hampshire is sharing some of her fun jewels. She even made the earrings below (which doesn’t surprise me because I know she’s an artist!) Love these fun accents. Thanks for sharing Elaine!

Elaine Says:“Black is always a great accent to dress down or dress up an outfit. The earrings were made from black coral found at the Grand Cayman Islands.”

Safe Products

I wanted to elaborate on a post I did a month ago called: With Fashion Come Beauty…

It’s a daunting task thinking about replacing all the beauty items in your cupboard with organic ones. Not only does it cost a lot of money to replace everything all at once, but how do you know which items to buy? For one, you don’t need to replace everything ALL at once. As you finish a product, replace it with something organic. And when you’re in the store PLEASE be careful of tricky marketing. There are a lot of items out there that appear organic, but they really aren’t. Do your research before you hit the stores!

Here are a few items I’ve switched over to:

  1. Dr. Bronner’s Magic “All-One” lotion
  2. Juice Beauty – Smoothing Eye Concentrate
  3. Juice Beauty – Nutrient Moisturizer
  4. Crystal Deodorant Stick
  5. Tom’s Toothpaste

Please comment on this post with organic products you love! I know I would find that very helpful and I’m sure all of my readers would too!

You Style The Day-The Many Looks of Goff

Time for our next “You Style The Day“:
Sara Goff Roiko, lead singer of LA indie band The Elizabeth Kill, has got some truly rock ‘n’ roll style. When she takes the stage, she commands attention, not only with her voice, but also with her look. I love the combination of her gold tights and chic white blazer, accessories fit for a rock star and her steampunk vibe. Everyone’s got that inner rocker. Be sure to bring that persona out from time to time and rock your style like Sarah does. Thanks for sharing your look Sarah!

“Happiness is a Warm Gun”

Sarah Says: “I’m a tom boy, always have been. Caring about what I was wearing only came about when I started wanting to get people’s attention on stage.  Suddenly my old jeans weren’t the only item I was into showcasing; gold, spandex and silver scream louder than my denim sometimes. My spandex makes it a lot easier to stretch and move on stage. 

Amber has always been encouraging, not only by cheering me on through the years off stage, but now as our photographer for The Elizabeth Kill. She encourages me to continue to take chances in visual ways.  I love her eye for fashion and it inspires me to bring more of me to the table! Thanx girl! 

 My gun ring is my most favorite accessory right now, this is a piece of my onstage persona that I can bring with me anywere…welcome to the gun show.”

You might be asking yourself: “Self? How can I incorporate these rocker looks into my own wardrobe?”  There are tons of great ideas Sarah is using here. We all can’t wear gold spandex to the office but we could certainly all use a kick-ass white blazer like hers, or some unique accessories. Don’t afraid to be different! Stand out in the crowd! You’ll have much more fun that way.

Color Invasion

If you haven’t noticed, my wardrobe has been invaded by persimmons (1, 2, 3, 4) this spring. Not only does this bright concoction make me feel alive when I wear it, but it also caught the eye of a photog over the weekend shooting “street style” for an online Japanese magazine (If I make it into the magazine I’ll let ya know). Infuse your wardrobe with a little color this summer. I guarantee it will help brighten your day.

You Style The Day – Linda’s Look

Next up? Linda from Massachusetts. This outfit breaks the mold of typical office attire. What a great combination of items she’s used here to give her work day a bit of a jolt. I love the transparency and soft lines in the cardigan mixed with the pattern in the top.  Definitely an outfit that will make you stand out at work! Thanks for sharing Linda!

Linda's outfit

Linda Says: “You inspired me with your belts and sweater/blazers.   My wardrobe was calling for an uplift.  This is my feel good outfit with a metallic belt and light and airy sweater”
