i'm sure you are all aware of the fact that i am a bit bauble obsessed. i love to collect statement necklaces, the more obnoxious the better. i have been known to rock a solid stack of arm candy. and i am a fan of rings of all sizes and styles - from costume to vintage cocktail to dainty stacks. i have also been playing with oversized chandelier earrings which is such fun.

i am all about adding a dazzling piece to give any outfit a special pop. for me, a nice piece really completes a look. and often, makes the look. a chunky necklace can make jeans and a t-shirt look like a million bucks. and the right mix of simple rings and bracelets can make a basic dress ready for date night. i have a group of easy-breezy accessories on my vanity that are my everyday items: my engagement ring and wedding band + my vrai & oro mother's day ring + a few cocktail ring options + my watch collection. these are ready for grab and go. but i also have drawers and a display rack filled with my extras. the statement-makers, if you will. bold necklaces. vintage/family heirlooms. big ol' bracelets. et cetera. this area of my closet is the last stop before heading out the door. it is where i add a finishing touch. it's my festooning spot. where the dress-up and fun stuff happens.


one of my favorite shopping moments is when i find that perfect accessory to add to my stash. i am a sucker for accessories of all sorts. they add personality to an ensemble, in my opinion. a fab necklace and a bright lip can make even the most mundane outfit feel special. yes to that. in this girl's dream world, i would be able to constantly add to my collection without paying the often steep price tag. jewelry can be ex-pen-sive.


enter, rocksbox. making my jewelry dreams come true! this rad company gives you unlimited access to rent from an ever-rotating closet of designer jewelry for a SUPER REASONABLE monthly fee. when they reached out to me, i was all YES PLEASE!

they send you a box of goodies based on your preferences and you can try them on and play and "rent the baubles" then return them for new ones. and if you fall in love with a piece, you can buy it at a major discount. cool huh?
