accessories ~ a video post

Just this past year I've discovered 2 new loves~ lipstick and jewelry! I feel like wearing either can be such a fast, simple, and inexpensive way to completely change your look ~ for the better! When it comes to jewelry, I used to shy away from big statement pieces because I thought they could only be worn by tall, larger framed women. But, I've found that if you find the right piece that has the right proportions and placement, it can work no matter how short/tall or small/big you are! I also like adding color to my outfit using jewelry rather than an article of clothing.. it's much easier for me to wear, say, a red necklace than it is to wear a red shirt/sweater!

My idea of a "quick" video is to talk on and on for 10 minutes :p
Talk about jewelry until the 7:00 mark, then I show a few scarves.
Wearing NYX "India" l/s. Love it!


Gaah I love this necklace! And love the $7 price tag!

Love how it can glam up my yoga pants and cotton top. I think this necklace would work well with a jumpsuit.

While I was picking up some beads at a local craft shop, I spotted this - how ingenius to turn a picture frame into an earring holder!

  5. ^Nelah I'm glad you liked it! I actually have another video about color contact lens. Jewelry holders are a must! Helps keep things in one place and keeps them from tangling.

    Ping~heh that's why I watch videos at work (shhh don't tell) the connection is super fast!

    Edwina~What do you mean you wish you can pull them off? Of course you can silly goose! Takes time to sift through to find the right piece, but it's worth it!

  10. Woah, that picture frame idea is genius...too bad I don't have pierced ears otherwise I would be replicating it.

    You seem so at ease in the video (and look terrific, as always), I fell in love with statement jewelry too but still have trouble using them properly in outfits. I look ridiculous sometimes because a lot of my outfits are pretty colorful already...and add bright jewelry and I look like a rainbow.

  11. Wow I love that $7 necklace! The color is gorgeous. F21 is one of my favorite places to get jewelry, so cheap and so cute! Great video!

  12. ^Thanks Angie!

    Lenna~ of course! I always like to comment on blogs that interest me :)

    Elle~ isn't it though? I also saw a DIY necklace holder using a large photo frame that I may attempt one day..

    Tiny~I don't know what I'd do without F21! I'd probably never buy anything and if I did I'd be so broke from buying like 2 things >_<

  16. I loved seeing all your pieces, and can't believe some of them are so cheap! I really need help in the accessories department, but I'm indecisive and can't bring myself to drop serious $$ on "costume" jewelry like you said. I definitely will be checking out the F21/H&M accessories section now!

  18. You look gorgeous in the video and pictures! Your hair is so pretty!

  19. I've been leaning towards larger pieces of jewelry because of the exact same reasons you talked about in your video. It can completely change an outfit! I usually don't like chunky necklaces but they're growing on me [not my bf though]. I went shopping with the BF the other day and saw this cute chunky necklace but the BF shot me a 'uh.. no' look. {*boo!}

    I think the aqua turquoise blue one is my favorite of the necklaces you showed. The next is the layered gold chains. I really like your silt scarfs as well!!

  22. ^RP~ THANK YOU! I totally subscribed to you as well, and keeping my fingers crossed you'll have a talking vid :)

    Thanks ladies!

    PXXS~ I'd definitely recommend taking your time and holding off on buying unless you like everything about it.. nothing worse than buying something and not wearing, no matter how cheap!

    Mooshi~ yay for lipstick!!

    Serena~Aww sorry to hear that.. Just remember, if you like something a lot that should count for something too, even though his opinion is important to you!

    WM~thanks for sharing that! I'll check it out :)

  23. the picture frame into earring holder is a great idea! I'm gonna steal that one day ;) and I didn't know the birds in SF are having issues with the weather too. too bad for global warming!

  24. What a great video!! I love your necklace holder and every piece you showcased. I couldn't catch where the green necklace was from tho, and I replayed that part several times! I want to go find it tomorrow!

    You should do more talking videos. Like someone else mentioned you are completely at ease and your voice is very mature. <3!!

  25. Sophia, how do you stay so calm and collected- you sound like a pro! I wear mostly plain basics for clothing too :\ I should really get some jewelry pieces to make things colorful!!

    Btw your comment about my blog as a source for CF issues almost made me tear, sniff. It's really sweet and I'm glad I met someone compassionate like you who also cares about animal testing :)

  29. ^Julie~yup it's a genius idea!

    Thanks Jean!

    Aww Karen thanks! I tend to use a lot of "filler" words like "uhm" (nasty habit) :(
    I'm soooo glad I met you too!!

    Thanks ladies!

    Helena~ F21 can be a treasure trove (and sometimes not, lol) :)

  30. That necklace is GORGEOUS!! I love the color and the size of it. Totally great statement piece for your outfits. I need to find something like this! I always chicken out of buying stuff like that because I get self-conscious about it looking too flashy... and then I see others wearing stuff like this and get so jealous! hahaha. Love this!

    ReplyDelete
  31. ^mich~ that's funny you say that, b/c that's exactly how I feel too!! Wearing big jewelry feels bold, and yes - a tad flashy! But after seeing it look so good on other girls, I realized it could look ok on me too :)
