Currently Coveting {Costume Jewelry}

I'm in the midst of reading Rachel Zoe's fashion bible Style A to Zoe and, while my personal style is far more casual and less glamorous than the celebrity stylist's, I find myself nodding in agreement with her love of costume jewelry. I've collected a few statement pieces in recent years but I either forget to wear them on my way out the door or sport them one at a time, so unlike Rachel's "more is more" philosophy. I think I'll give her maximalist ways a try in the spirit of the sparkly holiday season. Won't you join me?




(1) Michael Kors link necklace, $175 (2) ASOS tassel necklace, $27
(3) ASOS box knot drop earrings, $14 (4) Loren Hope Farrah necklace, $185
(5) Catbird ring, $88 (6) House of Harlow antler cabochon ring, $95

Which is your favorite piece and what's your jewelry philosophy?

I love the "more is more" philosophy -- I think Bee of Atlantic-Pacific pulls it off particularly well!

I love the less is more philosophy.. like jewelry and gold necklaces but one at the time.. few quality pieces. Loved that first gold necklace!

My mother in law literally just let me come over and play in hers. I made out like a bandit, but I am a little nervous to actually strut out in some of it! This is motivation!

I love, love, love costume jewelry. I usually gravitate towards close that are on the plain side so I can layer on the costume jewelry.

I tend to wear more delicate pieces on a daily basis and things that I can leave on and not have to think about but for going out and definitely for the holidays I am all about more is more ! Love #6 and #8 !!

These are all great pieces, I like the "more is more" philosophy as well and like to wear large rings with statement earrings too!

I adore costume jewelry! This year I've been loving chain link pieces, like #1. My philosophy with jewelry is that less is more...but that what you DO wear should make a statement!

I’ve seen that link necklace around and I can’t get enough of it. I say yes to costume jewellery! Very few of us can afford an entire collection of real jewellery and even though spoiling yourself once in a while is fun, costume jewellery fills up the gaps in the collection quite well!
