my bags are packed...

my pretties….

I LOVE jewelry.  I mean I know most women do, but I think the women in my family are EXTRA SPECIAL.  It started with my Mimi who loved jewelry.  I mean, LOVED.  I don’t think I ever saw her without bangles, earing, bracelets, rings, you name it!  And she had the PRETTIEST rings (she actually had the prettiest EVERYTHING.  You never saw such a savey lady, even at 87 years old!).  She had three daughters (my mom and her sisters) and THEY love jewelry.  So its only fitting that my sisters and I – we like LOOOOOOVE pretty things.

Currently, I’m into Gold (for like 30 years.  Not sure that is going to change) and Rose Gold (which is only a wish…have nothing in Rose Gold YET!) and Green!

Here are a few of the pieces that I’ve been wearing (I LOVE me some Stella & Dot right now!  My sweet friend Joan sells it, and I can’t help but DROOL over everything.  Sidebar, please – have a party for Joan.  I don’t do much “parties” for people, but like I said, its AWESOME.

Serenity Stone Drops

I’ve been wearing these with EVERYTHING.  I love them ;-)’

Costa Azul Wrap Bracelet

You see the bracelet above?  Yeah, I wear it almost every day.  I mean, even when I teach Body Flow.  Its my favoritist, and I am TRYING not to wear it out so much!  But, it might by my signature piece for this Spring/Summer.

And then is this:

Serpent Bangle

So girly and scary at the same time!  I love it.  Makes me feel all SORTS of Bad-A when I wear it.

I shop a lot of my jewlery off of Ideeli.com, which is nice, because things that are $65 for a set of bracelets end up being like $19.  And very MUCH worth it to me.  The next couple of items came from there…

I am loving this brand called Yochi Jewelry.  I have one that kinda looks like this…same style, different “theme”.

And this brand Bee Charming – I get the MOST compliments on the “Evil Eye” bracelets.  Oh, Becca hates them.  She thinks they STARE at her.

I have one ring from my grandmother that I love – and I NEED to get a picture of it, but I don’t have it.  (Why are you mentioning it then, do you ask?  Because this is my space.  That is all!)

And then there is the name plate necklace I have.  I have had it since 2003! All three of my sisters have one…It REALLY does go with everything 😉  And YES aparently they ARE still marketing these necklaces with Carrie’s name on it.  Whatever sells!  (I still would wear EVERY SINGLE THING she had on in that show.  Really!)

14k gold 'Small Carrie' personalized name necklace
But here is what I am wearing today (I don’t have pretty nails, hence the strange “fist” I am making.  Trust me, its better than the weird fingernails I’ve got going on!

SO TELL ME – What are some of your favorite pieces of jewelry?  Do you wear it every day?  Or are you  more of a “I don’t need any bangles to feel pretty.”?
