Here are my final looks from the Fall Fashion edition of The Good Times photoshoot that I styled and photographe. These are, by far, my favroites.
Clare is wearing clothing from Cameron Marks and jewelry by Blank Verse.
Isn’t that necklace and cuff gorgeous?
Here is Dez in a Smoke and Mirrors dress with bright tights and a scarf.
Finally, my favorite shot of the shoot:
I hope you all enjoyed the images of the shoot! I have a trunk show at Stripe tonight.
If any of you live around here, come on my to see my new fall line up. I’ve got BRAND NEW things!!
If you know me by now, you know I have a thing for Forever 21 Jewelry. I love how you can get big, in-trend pieces for $5. But when it comes to simple pieces you can always tell when it’s cheap. There are certain pieces I would never skimp on. Those pieces are my classic, basic staples. I love the simplicity of gold bands , a long silver necklace with a small pendant, simple hoop earrings, and stacked rings. There are things that I wear every single day, that I get the most compliments on. Now enter:
For Christmas this year, I got these gold bangles from Coco Bijou- one for each year that I’ve been married. (My inspiration from Grieving Gracefully). I wear them every day and layer them with other things. They are my favorite pieces of jewelry and I love that, with God’s help, each year of marriage I get to add to this symbol.
You know how sometimes things look great online and they’re not so great in person? I can GUARANTEE that is NOT the case with CocoBijou. The quality and craftsmanship is amazing. For Christmas my siblings and I got my mom this gorgeous necklace.
It’s an imperfect gold oval with all of our names on it. My mom went crazy over it!
I had the hardest time picking out my favorite pieces from her store, but here are a few.
Apple Green Chalcedony Briolette Earings. They are so delicate yet the color has high impact.
Stardust Gathering Ring. I love how unique this one is!
Set of 4 STacked Gold RIngs (Jealous)
Hammered Gold Bangle Bracelet with CHarm (jealous again)
Indulgence Ring (even more jealous)
OR the Gold Circle Necklace (seething with envy)
The winner will be announced Thursday, March 4th.

So I’ve been churning in my head- how can I make these functional??
(Disney from Ruffles and Stuff made a cute version seen here)?
Get a dollar bangle at Target. Just like yesterday’s post!! Cover it in black fabric. I used a dupioni silk.
Get long layers of white fabric. I used chiffon. Fray check the edges so it doesn’t fray too much. You could fold it over, but I like how Chanel’s are slightly frayed.
After I finished gluing the ruffles to each side of the bangle, I got a piece of lack fabric and glued it on the inside of the bangle to make it look nice and clean.

this Vera Wang Silkor this other Chanel.
Cut the fabric the length of your bangle and wide enough to cover it all the way around. Hot glue it on one side. Make sure to pull tightly so it doesn’t pucker at all.
For an extra step, I covered the inside with this gold hem tape to cover the fabric that was folded over.
Now go make some one of a kind, couture statement bracelets!!(That cost a buck!) How great are these for gifts!! I’m going to be making LOTS of these for Christmas!
