Previously we’ve already covered a bit about vintage sunglasses with the classic humongous frames and dark lenses. Now, we’re going to check out retro glasses that celebrities wear. I’m giving you a rundown of some of the styles of glasses that the stars wear that have that retro vibe. Read more…
When someone like Coco Chanel says cuffs are great, who are we to argue? I mean just look at how elegant that is. Strings of pearls, black dress and white cuffs. Elle.com has called it when they said that cuffs are a “powerful accessory” (remember that silver cuff bracelet?) so stack ‘em up and feel the fashion power.
Over the past few years it seems that there have been a resurgence of nerd fashion, starting with too-big-for-your-face, black rimmed eyeglasses. And because I haven’t done a music slash video post in a while, I’d like to take this opportunity to take you through pop culture’s most popular nerd glasses.
Buddy Holly. Critics have regarded Buddy Holly as one of the most influentials figure in rock and roll, influencing later rock acts like The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.

Top hats, fur, Native American Indian headdress, vintage sunglasses and sequined tops. It’s the psychedelic 60s meets the devil may care 90s meets futuristic 21st century.
Love really doesn’t come cheap. New Jersey Net’s Kris Humphries put a $2 million, 20.5 carat art deco engagement ring on Kim Kardashian‘s finger just a little over a few days ago. TMZ reports that there are Bible verses inscribed in the ring (Check out the actual verses here) that are both special to Kim and Kris. Now Kim is walking around all over town (here, here, here) with her massive, and I mean Hip Hop jewelry-has-nothing-on-this massive, engagement ring. Other stars with art deco engagement rings include Reese Witherspoon and Camilla Parker Bowles.
When I think of jewelry there are only two things I think about – engagement rings and rappers. Both have to be big and shiny in order to make a big impact. And if an engagement ring needs an over the moon happy fiance to make it shine brighter, hip hop jewelry needs the panache of a rapper to get “bling” status. Read more…
First off, I didn’t know whether to put this under I-Like because Will Yun Lee is like super hot and well, I like that. So this maybe an old video of Mariah Carey from her Charmbracelet album (note the emphasis on the sterling silver charm bracelet), but I sort of remembered it because orange seems to be coming back in style these days, in clothes as well as make up.
The video looked so occult it reminded me of a previous post about silver charm bracelets. And I love The Pierces they’re just fashionista through and through. It’s kind of cool also that you get two different styles from an almost same look when they dress up. Their song Secret is also the opening song for the show Pretty Little Liars. I can’t tell if those are low heel boots she’s wearing in the Secret video, but Aria (Lucy Hale) in PLL definitely loves her low heel boots, see here, here, and here.
Is this the new mood ring? Necomimi which literally translates to cat (neko) ears (mimi) is a pair of electronic cat’s ears headband that synchronizes with your brainwaves, detecting changes in your moods and emotions and moves accordingly. My guy friends think this is the perfect gift for their girlfriends. Their reason? So they immediately know when they did something wrong.
I don’t really know what it is exactly about vintage accessories that makes it extremely fashion forward, when it should really be the opposite. Aren’t they suppose to be old and outdated? But here they are, gracing runways, fashion editorials and more importantly street fashion, more popular than they were back when they first came out.
Remember how he thought it was a good idea to pay the waiter to put your beautiful cushion cut engagement ring inside your favorite dessert before serving it, as he watches your every bite, anticipating that moment when you’ll eventually find the engagement ring of all cushion cut engagement rings tucked between layers of scrumptious chocolate cake, but instead got panic-stricken when you almost choked on your own engagement ring, and how you still think it was the silliest and most romantic proposal ever? Definitely one for the grandkids.
When it comes to purchasing or selling wholesale bracelets, there is no such thing as too much of a good thing. Here are some tips on how to start a wholesale jewelry business, to turn your passion into a profitable endeavor.
Once upon a time there was wholesale…
The best way to begin this tale is to start answering the question: What is wholesale? Simply put wholesale means buying or selling in bulk. No, not how you usually shop wherein you get one of each item on the rack. What I mean by bulk is that you get a lot of the same items in one purchase. In the case of wholesale bracelets, you’re buying bracelets of the same style which you will then sell retail or build new styles upon.
