Fashionistas are often born that way - one may be influenced by their family, their friends and the world at large, but ultimately some people just have an innate sense of and love for fashionable accessories and an outlet for creative expression.
Many of us know girls and teenagers who want to dress up or just be trendy in general, and sometimes it is a challenge to find gifts that are age and price appropriate. After all, if a girl is wearing Tiffany bracelets as a kid she certainly won't lose that expensive taste going forward, but we hear a lot of parents say that they want their girls to know that things have to be earned in life.
Kiki in Paris is a line created by and for younger trendsetters, inspired by the savvy sisters seen below. Who better to know what a younger person wants then a person who is actually that age?
The best part, aside from the fact that this is a beautiful sisterly creative collaboration, is that the items are mix and match. You can purchase any group of three or six bracelets customized for her style and personality. So just as they have created their own line, you can create your own combination for that little trendsetter and be the one who gives the gift that they actually want to receive.
And, since Easter is upon us, Kiki in Paris items make the perfect Easter basket gift for girls and teens. The Sweet Thing Bunny hair clips ($10) are a cute seasonal outfit addition, shown here:

Make the season special with a few fun pieces (starting at just $10) from our Kiki in Paris line. We have everything you need for Easter basket gifts and to complement that special dress, whether you shop in our stores or order online. Shipping is free and easy, and we will get it to you before the big day!

Happy Spring - accessorizing and gift giving has never been easier than with Kiki in Paris!

Reflection on Oscars Styles

Reflection on Oscars Styles

Now that we've all recovered from our Oscars hangover and Leo craze, let's just reflect upon some of the standout looks and similar lou lou pieces that we were reminded of as we watched these ladies dazzle on the red carpet. Margot Robbie, star of Suicide Squad, stunned and looked like an Oscar herself; we were reminded of our signature TWD Shooting Star hoops and one of our classic black clutches.
TWD Shooting Star earrings $75
Vegan Leather Tassel Wristlet $72
Use our Grab & Go Pony holders to create this fantastically knotted updo that Rooney Mara, nominee for Carol, sported:

Olivia Munn, now best known as Aaron Rodgers girlfriend though she's also a true fashionista and holds her own on the red carpet simply wearing a beautiful bracelet as nothing else is needed. lou lou has so many bracelets, but this  cat's eye cuff is the one that immediately struck us as we saw her.
Gold Cat's Eye cuff $20
Hope you're enjoying your week and Happy March!

Get Stacked!

Bracelet: an ornamental band or circlet for the wrist or arm or, sometimes, for the ankle.

A great way to change your look from day to day is with bracelets! Depending on my mood, I wear anything from beaded, to bangles, to leather versions of this fantastic accessory. We have hundreds to choose from online and in store. Stacking these great pieces of jewelry on your wrist is a must do! We have several styles to wear depending on the look you want to achieve.
A great group of bracelets, rich in color and texture, to wear during this transitional time from summer to fall are the following: Amethyst wire bracelet, touch of gold wrap bracelet, and the circle bangle bracelet in antique gold. This trio looks fabulous!! Amethyst is my birthstone and I love this purple color. This is a casual look that can be pulled off by anyone. I love the antique gold which is a huge trend for jewelry this fall!

Another lighter but luxe look is grouping the following: Quartz stone wire bracelet in orange, three fleur bracelet in brown, and the seed bead stretchy bracelet in gold. These look gorgeous together! I love how expensive this combination looks, yet each cost $18 and under! This also can be worn now and into the fall season. It would look great with a chunky, ivory knit sweater and jeans.

 

Lets step it up a notch! Heading to a cocktail party? The following assortment looks extravagant: Tassel cuff bracelet, two twisted wire bangles with square stones, the wire bangle with square buckle stone and the white savoie bracelet. What a beautiful mix these make!

 

These suggestions are only the tip of the iceberg. We have so many bracelets to choose from. There is no wrong way to stack them! Find your personal style through this easy trend for all ages.

With Optimism, Pamela
