Ready in 5 - Fashionable Fast

It's easy to look good when you feel great and best of all, it doesn't have to take forever to get ready.  Here's an easy way to get ready in 5-minutes flat! (and yes, there are flats). My simple trick is always adding a piece of jewelry that is simple, yet colorful and unique. It makes you feel instantly more put-together while expressing your individuality. Here I paired the Small Nomad Necklace with this outfit to add a dash of whimsy, texture, and subtle color. 

Looking to get out the door in a hurry? Here's a dressing recipe for success. Ready? Go! 

Layer up (basic tee under a kimono cardigan )
Dab of BB cream (moisturize, SPF, & even skin tone in 1-step)
Bit of Black (mascara adds some polish)  
Spritz of perfume ("you smell wonderful!") 
Add a necklace (simple, touch of color)
Slip on pointed-toe flats (instantly elongate legs and 
Grab your bag & sunnies
...and out the door you go looking casual and chic! 

 

Black Orchid - comfortable, casual, polished

What do you think of when I say "comfortable wear?" Sweats? T-shirt and jeans? I love that comfortable doesn't have to mean any less put-together. The trick is to wear pieces that feel good and make you feel good. Keeping it simple, with a classic combinations and colors, makes casual chic comfy. 

With 2014's "color of the year," being vibrant orchid, it's fitting to spice up the nails accordingly. Where would you wear this outfit?  

Minimalist with a Twist

What do you think of when you hear "minimalist" to describe style? Boring? Plain? Monochrome?  Minimalism in fashion can be profound. Keeping things clean and simple can really let the thoughtfulness and detail shine through. How would you describe your fashion?

While there are different definitions of minimalism in fashion, here, we're talking about visual impact, not amount of things owned. For this look, we want to keep it simple by using a select few colors: black, white, cobalt, and yellow (we're a little color obsessed here, so it can't be all black and white).

Nomad Necklace

I love a classic long necklace. This long turquoise enamel necklace is perfect to wear by itself, layered with other pieces, or even with a scarf. The latter is good for me because from mid-September till May, and on cool summer nights, chances are I'm sporting a scarf. This Nomad Necklace lets you enjoy both!    

The Nomad Necklace comes with a Southwestern influence, while maintaining modern simplicity and polish. Perfect for the modern bohemian woman. When designing the smaller details, I was inspired by images of journeying, adornment, pilgrimage, nomadic ancestors, footprints, and evidence of time passing...

What do you see in this piece? Does it remind you of anything?  

Hope you're having a lovely September and beginning to fall!

back from Chicago's Renegade Craft Fair

Just returned from a wonderful time in Chicago. Over the weekend, Enfuse Jewelry participated in the Renegade Craft Fair. It was lovely meeting my customers and seeing them filled with excitement finding the perfect piece of jewelry. The feedback received was incredible: simple, unique, everyday, perfect, polished, fun, cute, beautiful. You rocked our socks off!

A happy customer wrote me a few days later about how wearing her new necklace made her feel super modern and chic at work. Love hearing the impact a simple piece of handcrafted jewelry can change the way you feel.

Having a blast meeting our customers in person!
