Instant Update: Jeweled Necklaces....

Make a statement with a NECKLACE...

Any outfit whether it be jeans and a tee or a LBD.... gets an instant boost with an eye catching necklace! Whether these accessories are made from semi-precious gems, less expensive stones or even real diamonds, the focus is more on the design itself than how expensive it is. The bottom line is that the statement necklace is a something everyone should have in their jewelry box.... but remember to keep the rest of the outfit simple, the necklace needs to make the statement!

Summer Trend + Beach Appropriate = Instant Summer Style

Tie dye Maxi Dresses

Stylists in the city recomends this look for your weekends AWAY from the summer SF fog!
Want to look chic, casual and feminine at the beach?

Forget the shorts and tanks and slip into 2 of summer's biggest trends...
tie dye AND maxi dresses.
Pair with summer's ever present flat gladiator sandals, SITC suggests GOLD, the same aviators we suggested yesterday and an oversized beach bag. Add some gold jewelry, preferably a long chain and chunky bangles. And don't forget a sexy bikini underneath.
Bring some gold earrings and go for a slicked back ponytail or beachy waves and you're ready for evening with just a smidge of red lipstick, your tan and pink cheeks from the day at the beach.

Not headed to the beach?
Don't fret! This style is easy and chic for running weekend errands... for SF use, don't forget to stick a sweater in your oversized tote bag!


Try the above styles from one of our favorite (and super soft) T shirt companies... Splendid Mills! All of the Above are $160 and under.

Can't pull off a maxi?

Try a shorter version like Ali Larter above. This style is more appropriate for evening summer cocktails. Pair with black pumps or high heeled sandals (the higher the better) and a great black clutch. Take a style note from Ali above and use minimal jewelry... we suggest a big cocktail ring.
