French Kande

I am a sentimental gal and love special pieces of jewelry that carry some sort of meaning.  So when I discovered a company called French Kande, whose jewelry is both beautiful and meaningful, I knew that I wanted to share their unique pieces with all of you.

To give you a little background, French Kande jewelry is inspired by authentic French Medallions from the 1960’s that the owner of the company has collected from flea markets in Paris over the last 7 years.  Each one has a different story and is handcast from the original medallion and plated in either brass or sterling silver in the French Kande studio in L.A..

The Medallion I am wearing in today’s post is a gorgeous compass medallion that was used a as promotional piece for a fine food retailer in France in the 1960’s called Sopad.  They carried everything from fine wines to chocolates (perfect for me!).

So if you are looking to own a little piece of history, or add something incredibly unique and special (not to mention stunningly beautiful!) to your jewelry collection, then I would recommend checking out French Kande!  And right now, just for All Dolled Up readers, they are offering a FREE pair of stud earring (cast from antique French buttons) with any $150 purchase.  Just enter ALL DOLLED UP in the comments at checkout!

Weekend Vibes

If you have followed this blog for any length of time, then you know that I love vests.  And this super soft, tribal printed one from Nordstrom Rack is no exception.  Vests are such a great item to throw on with a t-shirt and jeans, over a cute dress, with shorts and a tank-no matter the season, a vest is an easy piece to take a simple outfit up a notch.

And don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won the Sonix Case from Outfit Yours!!!

Gingham

Gingham has always been one of my very favorite prints.  So when I saw that my favorite Portofino shirt from Express came in a light blue gingham this spring, it was an obvious choice to add to my wardrobe.  And let me tell you, I have already worn this shirt a ton AND have so many more ideas of how I will continue to style it different ways all summer long. But I want to know, what you are guys thinking of the gingham trend this season?

Tailor Made

As I’ve gotten older, I have learned the importance of a good tailor.  And that just because something doesn’t fit you off the rack, doesn’t mean that it can’t still work for you.  And the dress in today’s post is the perfect example.  My mom and I stumbled on this gem at Anthropologie when my parents were in town a couple of weekends ago.  It was originally $228 and we found it on the sale rack marked down to $48 (um, WOW!).  It was the gorgeous fabric that initially drew me to it, but the original length was tea length and it just swallowed me up and was really unflattering.  But neither of us could get over the fabric (you should see it in person!) so we hatched a plan to have it shortened and I took it to my tailor (who also couldn’t get over the fabric), and he shortened it for me for a mere $20.  And I have to say, I think it is one of my very favorite dresses in my closet right now.  I guess it goes to show that it can be worth it to think outside of the box a little bit.  So if you don’t have a tailor, I would definitely suggest finding a good one in your neighborhood-you just never know when they might come in handy!

Sonix Phone Case Giveaway!!

I don’t know about you guys, but ever since the iPhone 6 came out, I have been having a heck of a time finding a case for mine. So when Outfit Yours contacted me and asked if I wanted to give one of their Sonix 6 plus cases a spin, I immediately obliged.  And I have to say, I am truly impressed.  Not only is my case adorable, but it is super durable and actually protects my phone-without making it bulky.  And while the side control buttons are protected and covered, they are still really easy to use (unlike many other cases I have tried!).  I really just can’t say enough great things about this case.

And so today, Outfit Yours and I are teaming up to give away a Sonix phone case of the winner’s choice (any style phone!) and offering a 15% off discount on any Sonix product to All Dolled Up readers!  Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for details and to enter for your chance to win!

Olive

I am a huge fan of olive green-no matter the season. It’s a definite go-to for me.  Not only can it easily be dressed up (gold jewelry!) or down destroyed denim!), it’s just one of those fantastic colors that is always in style and looks good on just about everyone!

Shoulder Detail

I am loving any top I can get my hands on with details on the shoulders this season.  From embroidery (see this post), to cut outs, to sequins-I am all in.  And I am especially a fan of this sweater since it is such a lovely shade of my favorite color-yellow!  Plus, I am loving it back to a more casual boyfriend jean and a super playful mule pump.  Can you tell I’m ready for spring?

Juxtaposition

I didn’t think about it when I put this outfit together, but when I was editing these photos, I noticed the juxtaposition that I created-floral shoes and a beanie paired together in the same look! Ha! But for some reason, I think it works.  Maybe it’s the part of me that’s longing for warmer weather, or maybe it’s the color combo of mint and pale pink that I can’t seem to stop wearing lately.  But either way, I want to know, would you pair your spring items with your winter items this time of year?

And don’t forget, today is the LAST day to enter the giveaway with Moose and Nigel.  The necklace I am wearing in this post is yet another one of Megan’s beautiful creations!  Details below…

Cupcake

I think it might be safe to say that I’ve never met a stripe I haven’t liked.  And this cute little striped cupcake skirt from H&M has been an obvious favorite in my closet.  Like leopard, stripes can be used as a neutral-particularly when they are black and white.  So looking for pieces like this to add to your closet will give you a lot of different options for creating outfits with items you already own!
