2/23/2012

Here's another fabulous and wonderful guest blogger for you all to enjoy!  N is the voice behind Bedazzles After Dark.  I love her eye for style and her fanstastic taste in really everything.  Then when I found out that she was a Carolina girl at heart, well, I was sold.  Check out this fabulous post from N and check out her blog when you get a chance.  I promise you won't be disappointed!

Bedazzles After Dark

Hi Everyone! I'm so thrilled that Chelsea asked me to help out as she adjusts to life with a newborn baby! When we started discussing what to post, she told me how much she loves when I take a celebrity trend and show how real women can style the look for their everyday wear and stay on budget! So immediately I thought of one of my favorite sections from my blog, Steal Her Look For Less. I usually love spotlighting full ensembles, but I thought I would offer up some great jewelry options for all you ladies out there! I was really inspired by all the statement jewels from Golden Globes. However I know how hard it can be to transfer into your day-to-day looks. But don't fret - I've got some fabulous and affordable options! Let's take a look shall we?


Steal Her Look For Less: Bangles


Elle Macpherson is a force to be reckoned with at 47. She's just ridiculously stunning. So I was excited to see her walk the red carpet. I was even more excited when I noticed her gorgeous arm candy! I'm a HUGE fan of a stacked wrist - especially when it's colorful and with mixed metals. The best part about this accessory look is that you can pair it with any style casual or dressy. Look to bright and bold colors for an extra outfit pick-me-up. But if you're a bit timid and shy about trying this one stick to a few basic small bracelets and work your way up to a stack. Your friends will all think your so fashion forward, never knowing how little effort it really took.


Steal Her Look For Less: Turquoise Touches


In my book, Heidi Klum always gets it right. I love that she takes risks and tries new looks, but when she does simple she makes it look so fabulous! How gorgeous is her turquoise bib necklace against a nude colored dress. This kind of necklace is my new obsession - I just received a fabulous blue bib necklace as a gift that I can't stop wearing. For a new look try pairing it with a crew neck sweater, boyfriend jeans and a blazer. Heidi's got the right idea by keeping everything super clean and easy so that the necklace stands as your main focal point. This accessory could also work with a pair of skinnies, a white tee and some pointy pumps. Keep it sweet and simple and you'll knock it out of the park.


Steal Her Look For Less; Dazzling Dangles


Two of my favorite red-headed actresses chose bright and bold statement earrings for their red carpet appearances and I couldn't take my eyes off either one! The gorgeous Julianne Moore chose a fabulous pair of green tassel earrings while Debra Messing donned a crystal geometric pair. Both sets are colorful and cheerful which make great accessory additions. Try wearing yours with a little black dress for your next event or with a basic jeans and tee. Either way you can spice up your ensemble with an elegant and regal style.


Steal Her Look For Less: Haute Headbands


In true fashion (my blog is named "Bedazzles" after all!) I couldn't forget about adding some glittering gems to your look! Ok, so you may not be able to afford the vintage Cartier headband that Charlize Theron sported, but you can certainly emulate her look with ease! I'm a huge sucker for anything the sparkles but that doesn't mean you have to limit it your evening look. Try wearing shimmering head wear with a lovely daytime dress and some flats. It will give your overall look a special and adorable finish. Bonus points for keeping your makeup and other jewels low key. Well I hope you have enjoyed my accessory options! Feel free to drop by blog anytime for more sparkling suggestions! xoxo N
