Leather & Stripes

Cardigan with fur collar My grandmothers/ Sweater Zara (similar here)/ Skirt Forever 21 (old, similar here on sale! and love this pleated one too)/ Heels ShoeMint/ Purse Stella McCartney/ Ring Giles & Brother

I’ve been really trying to work on re-incorproating old items back into my wardrobe, like this skirt for example. I really like it, so I didn’t give it away when I cleaned out my closet, yet it sat there for months, almost a year. I find myself saying “I have nothing to wear”, which Thomas replies “Seriously!? You have issues…” I always get annoyed, but it’s true! Everybody always wants what they don’t have, but it’s important to realize what you do have and appreciate it. So, here is mr re-appreciating this beautiful faux leather Forever21 skirt that I forgot about. I paired it with a new to me item- My grandmother’s fur collar cardigan that my mom recently gave to me.

While I love a statement necklace or a wrist full of bling, dainty jewelry will always be my go to for day-to-day jewelry. My favorite pieces of jewelry (beside my wedding and engagement rings) are the few delicate necklaces and tiny studs that I’ve collected over the years. I was recently introduced to Page Sargisson jewelry and kept adding pieces to my “wish list” as I scrolled through her site- which ended up being pretty much everything. Her jewelry is stunning in an understand way- everything from her wedding collection (you gotta check out the perfect wedding band) to her intricate necklaces that are created with objects such as Indian woodblocks and letterpress printing blocks. She’s best known for her personalized calendar charms, but I fell in love with her pieces that had tiny little diamonds set into them.

I’ve always been drawn to pieces that make you want to look closer to see the details- there is something so precious and timeless amount it. While I have my fare share of inexpensive jewelry, I can’t wear it everyday because it irritates (my ears are especially sensitive) or turns my skin green. Not a cute look. One of my favorite things about Page’s line is that she only uses environmentally responsible precious metals in gold and silver. That brings me to the amazing giveaway that Page is offering one lucky Gal Meets Glam reader- A chance to win a $500 gift card to Page Sargisson Jewelry that can be used online!
