My fashionista friend Ashley is a guest blogger over at How Does She today. She has some great shopping tips on how to find cute skirts at a discount. If there is one person to take shopping tips from that would be Ashley. She is so fun to go shopping with because she easily rummages through clothing racks in record time and will always pull out that perfect hidden dress. And if you express an interest in it, she always hands it over. She’s that kind of shopping friend–only sends good influences and will tell you how it really looks or tell you how it really should be priced. And she is just so sweet to model some DMJ pieces–wishbone necklace, LOVE necklace, Lotus bangles and Ashley necklace.
Oh yes…I made sure to pick up a copy of Domino’s Quick Fixes at the airport during one of my numerous travels. It’s divine and I hope they continue to print new issues. Go and support!
I’ve been really enjoying my $20 colored Mossimo skinny pants I bought at Target. Yep…I bought one in every color–blue,green, red. Good alternative from denim jeans. And good news! It looks like colored pants will still be a must this spring.

I added some new ghoulish jewelry pieces to my shop. Just in time for Halloween! Okay…well maybe they aren’t THAT scary, but they do have a little more of an edge compared to some of my other pieces. I’m lovin’ the silver pyrite stones that I used in the Irene necklace and Pippa earrings.
I feel honored that the beautiful and most-inspirational Amy Purdy wore my Idalis necklace on the red carpet. Amy is a double leg amputee who continues to excel at everything she does. She is a competitive snowboarder, spokesperson, skater, wakeboarder, actress, model. She started Adaptive Action Sports and just won her 3rd world cup gold medal in snowboarding.
Owl fever is still going strong in my opinion. In the last week, I’ve seen three different owl motifs that I’ve wanted to snatch up and have in my home. Are owls a seasonal thing? Perhaps it just the upcoming fall season that has owls popping up.
I’m closing my shop end of today for summer break and will reopen September 6th after Labor Day weekend. If you want to order something, get it in today! All orders will be filled by the end of the week. My website will still be open to order, but orders will not be filled until after September 6th. I have a lot of fun new pieces and new stones that will be added in September. This summer has been really busy with wedding orders. Many brides have been buying the Personalized necklace and Single Initial necklace for bridesmaid’s gifts. And I do offer custom orders.
The last few weeks I’ve been saving my money for a local sidewalk sale that some of my favorite stores participate in…Kate,Tory, j.crew to name a few. I snatched up a few items that i’m excited to use and excited that I got a good price on. Now is the time to get the good summer deals and still be able to use it before the season ends. Right now J.crew and Banana Republic are have their 40 percent off summer sale. Here are the few items I picked up at the sidewalk sale.
1. Tory Burch dipped tote–I plan to use as my beach and pool bag. But lately my summer bag as become my purse, diaper bag, snack bag…and anything else. So the large size is perfect.
2. J.Crew leopard iPhone cover–super chic and affordable. And doesn’t the blue nails from Brooklyn Blonde look so good with it! I wonder if a mother of four can get away with that…
3. Kate Spade finds–patent leather wallet, makeup case, printed dress
I don’t know how she does it, but Jen Ainston always looks so beautiful with minimal effort. A little makeup, simple dress, sunkissed hair and everyday jewelry like the wishbone necklace she is wearing. You can steal her look with my Wishbone necklace–satin finish 24K gold vermeil or sterling silver. Only $22.
