Jewelry Trend: Ring Stacks

The ring stack is to jewelry trends what maxi dresses are to fashion trends. They popped up in a big way, but they aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Especially now that the fashion set knows that maxi’s are simultaneously: comfortable, gorgeous, fashionable, conducive to non-leg-shaving. Ring stacks are exactly the same way (except for the leg shaving).

Thirsty Thursday: Lollipop + Lemon Drop + Lime Coat

Whew, today’s happy hour is a doozy. I’m mixing lemon and lime with my favorite lollipop flavor – Ippolita. Ippolita is having a moment, and arguably started off the slice jewelry trend a few years ago. We still aren’t purchasing many pieces from their Lollipop collections, and that means it’s still hot hot hot – typically I’ll start noticing more and more of a certain style or “it piece” in the showcases as its popularity wanes and the owners sell to RLJ or come in to trade for something new.
