{ Photo Diary } Inside Jewelry Designer Marlyn Schiff’s Showroom

I love jewelry and lately you may have noticed that Marlyn Schiff pieces have been making cameos here on the blog and my Instagram. It probably has to do the fact that everything is beautiful, budget friendly, and that I had the pleasure of meeting Marlyn and visiting her Ardmore showroom last month. I had featured a few blingy baubles from the celebrity-loved line in TV segments and blog posts so it was exciting to finally get to learn more about the brand and meet the creator.

First of all, it’s a wonderland of pretty things. There’s jewelry everywhere, of course, and the vibe is a little boho and free spirited yet glamorous and fashionable. There’s dainty cuffs and chain necklaces, blingy statement pieces, stunning stones, and most pieces are under $100.  I felt inspired to take it all in, try on a few pieces, and go a little snap happy. Here are some pictures from my visit. Hope you like! I’ll be sharing more pictures of places I go and things I do with the header { Photo Diary }.

{ Best Dressed } 2015 Oscar Fashion

Hollywood’s finest stepped out dressed to impress (and some didn’t) for the 87th Academy Awards.  As I watched from home last night a few dresses had me flip flopping. One second I wasn’t a fan, and a minute later I was moving the style to my best-dressed list. This morning I joined Fox29′s Good Day Philadelphia to chat about the Oscar fashions. It’s always a good day when I get to visit Good Day (corny, but true). Here are my top five fashion favorites from the 2015 Oscars. Continue Reading

{ Steal Of The Week } Faux-Leather Jacket

Hey, it was just Valentine’s Day. Did you treat yourself to anything? The greatest relationship is with yourself so don’t forget to show yourself some love and if it’s on sale, even better.

One of my favorite trends for spring is colored leather. It’s going to be BIG. It was on the runways and is already popping up in stores. Real or faux, whatever way you decide to go, color is in. Personally I’m loving pastel hues. It looks so fresh with the all-black outfits I’ve been gravitating towards lately and pastels have a way of going with so much. Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Dressed Fine For Valentine

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I’m getting in the season of love with a little pink, red, and love-themed jewelry. This light shade of pink on the blouse is one of my favorite colors and reminds me of delicate beauty — think ballet slippers or a baby’s room. Now that I think of it, this is the color of my room back at my parent’s house. No wonder I’m so drawn to it.  Continue Reading
