Scream Queens: Beware of Young Girls

IMG_2135

How cruel of Scream Queens to delay this episode a whole week!  But it was a good one.  Here are my assorted thoughts and favorite quotes:

  • We knew we’d see Ariana Grande again.  I thought maybe that coffin shot was it, but yay for another Chanel no. 2 appearance!  I also thought every detail of this funeral was perfection.
  • Also, no. 3’s necklace is clearly from Bauble Bar.  I even blogged about it here.  The plentiful pearl baubles in this show have long given me the Bauble Bar-vibe, so I think this confirms it!
  • Love a good Ouija board.  Love the joke about the movie Ouija which I will never see.
  • Gigi was on the phone with said red devil who she knows and loves.  I think this could be the baby!
  • What is the deal with Grace and Gigi going shopping together?  Why is every relationship Grace’s father has so freaking weird?
  • HOW GREAT IS THE MUSIC IN THIS SHOW.
  • Oh goodness, the “just a head” pun.  I love it.
  • “Why do you have 9 tampons in your purse?”
  • The VIGOR with which Billie Lourd says “KIX” cracks me up.
  • “How do you even crush a diamond?  It’s like the hardest substance on earth!”
  • I want Chanel’s bed.
  • “There’s no dinosaurs?”
  • Chanel’s grasp on rat poison is much better than mine.
  • This was Jamie Lee Curtis’s episode, man.  That whole last scene!

Can I just be really honest with you guys for a second?  Why does KKT allow Grace to wear such hideous clothes?  Like, I was never in a sorority, nor do I believe this to be a factual representation of one, but there seems to be quite a bit of conformity amongst the Chanels and the KKT sisters of the past.  If anything, Grace needs a fashion influence.  Her clothes actually offend me.  I love the color palette of KKT, even though I live a life of neutrals, this pastel paradise is the real me.  It reminds me of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.

I think I’ve decided that Grace isn’t the protagonist of this show.  I hate her.  Do you?

Let’s hear your thoughts & theories, hookers!

Pretty in Pearls

Before June is over, let’s talk about my favorite birthstone: June’s pearl.  June technically has three birthstones including alexandrite and moonstone, but pearls have always been my favorite.  No offense to my garnets, but the association with the sea gets my every time.

Now, I’m not a preppy girl and you won’t see my rockin’ a stand of pearls.  It’s just not my style.  You will, however, see me decked out in pearls in other ways.  Actually, I wear three pairs of pearl studs every day in my second, third, and fourth earlobe piercings.

Bauble Bar always has such fun pearl jewelry!  Here are my favorites:

Screen Shot 2015-06-24 at 12.21.26 AM[1] Pearl Bar Pendant – A different kind of pearl necklace.  How cute would this be for layering?!  Order now on BaubleBar.

[2] Pearl Arc Ear Jacket – As if I don’t wear enough pearls in my ears!  This is actually the piece that I am currently waiting for to arrive.

[3] Double Pearl Earrings – An interesting twist on a classic pearl!  Though not currently available on Bauble Bar, I picked up the same pair at a local boutique.  Be on the lookout!  They’re around!

[4] Pearl Wraparound Ring – Another piece that is sadly not available anymore.  I’m hoping this pops up again soon.  Similar here.

[5] Petite Pearl Cuff – This delicate bangle is available, and will mix & match well with other bracelets.  There’s also a larger piece, the snowball pearl cuff, that’s more of a statement!

[6] Gemini Pearl Ring – While stalking the pearl wraparound ring elsewhere on the web, I came across this ring also gone from Bauble Bar.  Similar around though!

 

Any favorite pearl pieces in your jewelry box?

I tell you, I’d be a stand-of-pearls girl if someone wants to buy me some Mikimotos… I’d love you forever!

Make A Statement

Welcome to the first of three Wishlist Wednesdays for the holiday season!

I’m looking to add to my statement necklace collection and add a bit of holiday sparkle to my wardrobe.  Whether it be to dress up long sleeves, sweaters, or layers at work, or to turn an ordinary dress into a festive holiday party dress, statement jewelry is a great way to celebrate the season.

My initial search was for something crystal, but while browsing Bauble Bar, lots of things caught my eye!  Here are my picks:
