March 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux BoxThere are some moments that are just exquisite. The feeling of brand new socks. That first hot, salty McDonald’s french fry. A perfect place to park suddenly becoming yours. Coming home after a trying day to find a subscription box on your porch. I recently had all four experiences in one day which culminated in finding my March 2017 Your Bijoux Box calmly awaiting outside my door!                  sample, affiliate links

March Collection Your Bijoux BoxThe March Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

The March Collection was a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, with an emphasis on spring green good-luck jewelry that makes you feel like a million bucks. This month they had a delay due to some supplier issues, but I really appreciated the communication and continued updates regarding shipping.  I still got my box in time for celebrating the holiday with my beautiful new items!Your Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation Cuff

1.  Tessellation Cuff ($78) – this is a gorgeous art deco piece from the House of Harlow 1960. It’s a fascinating cuff – I keep looking at it and finding more details. If you have nice arms, this is a great way to draw attention to them. Depending on your arm, you can wear this on the upper arm or at the wrist. It is a bit adjustable. I have really skinny arms so I like this on my upper arm, but my daughter prefers it as a bracelet. It’s gorgeous, and well worth the price of the box alone.Sama Cuff

Some people received the Sama Cuff instead. It looks beautiful, but I think I like the Tessellation Cuff even more.

It lays nicely and doesn’t tangle up. I love pairing this with a plain white t-shirt and skinny jeans.  Your Bijoux Box Emerald EarringsYour Bijoux Box Emerald Earrings

3.  Emerald Earrings:  These match the Emerald Layered Necklace. They are surprisingly light and don’t pull on the earlobes. I am a huge art deco fan so this month’s collection of jewelry is just perfect. I love the vintage glamour.

Your Bijoux Box Life of Fashion Scarf

4.  Life of Fashion Scarf:  My daughter Marina is modeling the fashion items for this month. The Life of Fashion Scarf is an infinity scarf with a graduated cream and green print. I don’t have a lot of green in my wardrobe so this is definitely a welcome addition. The scarf is soft and so pretty…and it was perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I wasn’t pinched once because I had my green!

The March Collection Your Bijoux Box was a fabulous celebration of spring and St. Patrick’s Day with pieces I can wear all year long. Have you signed up for Your Bijoux Box yet? It’s a great time to do it…just think of that exquisite moment when you find the box of sparkly surprises on your porch!  – Lisa

Ringing in the new year with my January 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box January 2017I like surprises. Well, not HUGE surprises…like when the doctor told me I was having a girl but he turned to be a boy. That’s a bit much in the surprise category. But I love knowing that a box of baubles, Your Bijoux Box, is on the way to me every month and I love the surprise that comes with it…I never know what is going to be inside but I always know it’s going to be pretty and fun!                                                                         sample, affiliate links

  2. Petra Pearl Collar:  This is an elegant collar necklace with faux pearls. It looks grown up but it’s very fun to match with dressed down clothes like a white t-shirt and a black moto jacket.House of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow Bracelet
  3. House of Harlow Bracelet:  This beauty retails for $58. I am head over heels for this Nicole Richie art deco bracelet with a boho vibe. It goes with everything and gets a lot of attention, even though it isn’t an ‘in your face’ piece. It’s lovely.

There are two cute extras in this month’s box – an Anne Taintor Lip Balm and Purse Sized Emory Boards. Anne Taintor is an artist and she is known for pairing mid-century imagery with modern slogans. Both of these immediately went into my purse and have already saved me from a few lip and nail emergencies.

I seem to love every month of Your Bijoux Box more and more! I highly recommend this wonderful monthly surprise of sparkle.   – Lisa

Glimmering baubles in Your Bijoux Box December Collection!


Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionSometimes everything just works out. A week ago, I found out at the very last moment that my husband and I were invited to a black tie affair. I rarely go to anything black tie, but I had a dress ready thanks to a recent Stitch Fix order – this Maggy Sophia White Floral London Fit and Flare Dress:maggie-london-sophia-white-floral-fit-and-flare-dress
I winterized it with a darling Alice Blue black jacket, also from StitchFix. I just needed the right jewelry.  Lo and behold, my December Collection of the Your Bijoux Box arrived!! Everything inside was exactly what I needed to perfectly accessorize my party dress.                          sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionThe December Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of four pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressy or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items and a pretty scarf!). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36, and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

Here’s what is in December’s box of bling:

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection David & Young Scarf

David & Young Scarf ($30) – I love love love this scarf. The geometric pattern is beautiful, the colors go with everything from a winter coat to a slinky dress and it is super soft and cozy. Awesome.

Deepa Gurnani Beaded Bracelet ($50) – This is a very cool, retro, sort of steam punk/art deco piece that has lots of sparkle and tons of personality. It is handmade by artisans and imagined by former couture beading designer Deepa Gurnani.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette DropsYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette Drops

Juliette Drops ($26) – Wow these are stunning. These crystal drop earrings add fun and bling to a maxi dress and will be fantastic to pair with a silky sundress this summer. Total romance.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette CollarYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette Collar

Juliette Collar ($38) – My exact words when I pulled this shimmering beauty out of the box: shut the front door!! Freaking fabulous. It was just perfect for my black tie event, but it also looks incredible with a simple white t-shirt (like the Citizens of Humanity Premium Vintage Esmay T-Shirt), skinny jeans (like the Rag + Bone Frayed Skinny Jeans), and black Acne Studio Pistol booties. citizens-of-humanity-vintage-esmay-t-shirtrag-and-bone-frayed-skinny-jeans

Quite honestly, I would have been thrilled if Juliette Collar had been the only piece in the box!

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionAdd it all up – these four beautiful pieces are worth $154, a fantastic value for a $36 box. You can buy each item separately at Your Bijoux Box if you want…or you can get a single box without the automatically renewing feature. I am loving Your Bijoux Box more and more every month and I hope you decide to get your sparkle delivered too!!  – Lisa

Function and fashion of olympic proportions: Maria Shireen bittersweet Bracelet

Raised handsOK, I want to see hands — how many of you wear an elastic hair tie as a bracelet, just in case you find yourself wanting to get that hair off your shoulders and out of your eyes? My hand is definitely up.  Now, however, it’s up so I can show you my gorgeous golden bracelet that also houses my hair tie!

Maria Shireen bracelet red white blueThe bracelet accessories line Maria Shireen sent me this very chic and modern bracelet from the bittersweet collection ($45).  It is incredibly fashionable, wonderfully functional, and is perfect for working out or going out.

Maria Shireen bracelet

Maria Shireen braceletsMaria Shireen has two different collections, bittersweet and Luxury.  The bittersweet signature bracelets are made of stainless steel and come in three different finishes: silver, gold, or rose gold. The line has five different metal designs, plus two BPA-free fun-looking plastic designs for those younger fashionistas. The Luxury Collection has two sterling silver styles in three color varieties, including silver, gold, rose gold.

IMG_1225IMG_1227
Each Maria Shireen bracelet is more than a statement piece – it’s very practical as it can be worn with its elastic hair tie. It takes you right from time-challenged soccer mom to chic and stylish mom. I absolutely love how you can mix and match with whatever color hair tie you happen to have.

IMG_1229IMG_1238The founder, Shireen, used to wear her hair ties around her wrist (like most of us do). Her hubby noticed that the hair ties left a dents on her arm, so he designed a bracelet that looked great and held her hair ties without cutting off her circulation. The rest is history!

With my hair tie...

With my hair tie…

...and without!

…and without!

This bracelet is a fantastic piece of jewelry that I wear all the time. And if you need a great excuse for splurging on a little something for yourself, take a look at the gorgeous USA 2016 Medals Set ($110)!

I hope you will head on over to the Maria Shireen website at mariashireen.com and go for the gold…or the silver…or the rose gold!! – Lisa

Get into the holiday spirit with SOUFEEL Jewelry

SOUFEEL JewelryYou know what is awesome about December? I have clothes and jewelry specific to this month and it is always so much fun to finally break them out! My SOUFEEL holiday charm bracelet is something that puts me right into the holiday spirit. SOUFEEL has some truly beautiful holiday charms this season that make a great gift or a fabulous addition to your own holiday wardrobe.

SOUFEEL Jewelry

SOUFEEL charms are 925 sterling silver and fit Pandora and Chamilia bracelets – however, they have a much more affordable price tag.  It’s easy to go a little crazy making theme bracelets with the huge variety of charms and I had a blast when SOUFEEL let me make a holiday bracelet for this review. Delivery is extremely fast, and everything arrives in a gorgeous little box with a blue bow. They also include a gift bag, a pretty box for storing the bracelet, and a black cleaning cloth.

SOUFEEL Jewelry

I decided to go with four pendant/dangling charms and one crystal charm to put in the middle.  Here are the holiday charms I chose for my bracelet:

SOUFEEL Jewelry Christmas Wreath Pendant

I love the delicate green wreath with a merry bow, the Christmas Wreath Pendant Charm.

SOUFEEL Jewelry Red Christmas Bells Dangle Charm

While they don’t actually jingle, the red enamel bells with a silver bow on the Red Christmas Bells Dangle Charm get a ‘ringing’ endorsement from me!

SOUFEEL Jewelry Christmas Coconut Leaves Pendant Charm
In the hopes that maybe I can coax someone to kiss me, I chose the Christmas Coconut Leaves Pendant Charm which I think looks just like mistletoe.
SOUFEEL Jewelry Reindeer Pendant Charm
I think my favorite is the Reindeer Pendant Charm. Isn’t this adorable??  It’s even cuter in person.
SOUFEEL Jewelry Christmas Tree Swarovski Pendant Charm
To anchor the bracelet, I chose the beautiful Christmas Tree Swarovski Crystal Charm. I love this charm because it’s two sides so it doesn’t matter if it flips around.  One side has a Christmas tree with green stones and a yellow stone star at the top.  The other side has ‘Happy Holidays’ with a little star engraved onto it.
