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!

I love to layer, but I also love a good twofer.  And this sweater from Shein couldn’t be more perfect.  Not only is it just the right shade of heather gray, but the pretty lace detailing makes it an easy piece to dress up or dress down.  And the length is great too.  It’s not quite tunic length, but it’s definitely long enough to wear with your skinniest of jeans.

Blanketed

There are so many things I love about the Fall: football, pumpkin everything, crunchy leaves, hot cocoa, plaid, layers, boots, and of course, blanket scarves.  Not only are they the perfect accessory, but they are also a great way to keep nice and cozy this time of year.

And can we talk about this top for a second?  It is my new favorite.  It so comfy and easy to throw on with anything, and I love that it is longer in the back.  In fact, it’s so great, I just might have purchased it in a couple of different colors!

Date Night Casual

I love a good date night casual look.  And there is no easier way to accomplish this kind of look than with a pair of destroyed skinnies, fun pumps, and a bold lip.  And even though my top is just a plain black shirt, the cut out shoulders give it a slightly edgy feel, while allowing me to still feel super comfy.  So in honor of the weekend, I want to know, what is your go-to date night look?

I have been a little under the weather this week and have honestly had a pretty stressful week in general.  So I have to say, I am even happier than usual to welcome the weekend this week.  Thanks for stopping by, sweet friends!

Casual Friday

I love a good striped tee.  Particularly when they are super soft and a little longer in the back than in the front.  And my white jeans?  Still going strong this fall season.  In fact, I love this look for Fall so much, that this type of uniform will definitely be on repeat.  I will just have to change out my heels for booties when the temps start to drop!

On a serious note, I also wanted to just take a minute and acknowledge today, September 11th.  I still remember so vividly where I was and exactly what I was doing on this day 14 years ago.  I remember watching towers fall while my roommates and I cried and clung to each other in our tiny little dorm room.  I remember frantically trying to call friends who lived in in NYC to make sure they were ok.  I remember how drastically things changed in those moments and how in the blink of an eye, things would never be the same.  But most importantly, I remember those who lost their lives, the heroes, the first responders, the children who have grown up without with fathers and mothers.  Every soul lost that day was so precious and taken from us much too soon.  So even though life marches on, today will be a day full of reflection for me, as I know it will be for many others across this great country and around the world.

Hold tight to your loved ones, and never, ever forget.

Love you guys.

Black and White

It doesn’t matter the season, or what’s on trend for the year.  Black and white is always one of my very favorite combinations.  Especially when paired with a bright lip for a little pop of color.  Not only is it a timeless combo, but a look everyone can wear.

So, when I was scheduling blog posts this week, I didn’t realize that I was posting the same jacket in two different colors in back to back posts!  Seriously people, that is HOW GOOD this jacket is.  I literally wear it with everything.  So do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one.  You can thank me later! 🙂

Happy Hump Day!

 

White After Labor Day

I’m baaaaaack!  Been a bit of a rough week for me over here.  I got some bad spider bites while we were on a float trip this past weekend and have been having an allergic reaction to them in the form of hives all over my arms and legs!  Gross!  Didn’t figure you all would want to see that on the blog, so I’ve just been taking it easy this week.

Fortunately, I started to feel a little better last night which is why I’m finally back today.  And good thing too, because I want to talk about how much I love white pants!!  I was so hesitant to buy them at first because I knew I would get them dirty (which I pretty much do every time I wear them), but it has been so worth it.  Not only do they look great with almost every cute summer top in my closet (especially bright colors!), but I can’t wait to transition these bad boys into Fall with booties and oversized sweaters!  Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day???

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.
