Accessorize Your Clothes!

I know you've seen them everywhere... they are the GINORMOUS faux diamonds that are on everything! I knew they were going to blow the fcuk up when jameil and I came across them in an InStyle two issues ago. I knew that it was going to be the look for the holidays when my mom pulled out her dress for the night wedding and the top of her bodice was adorned with them. I went shopping for a dress for the wedding and would've been remiss if I left this jewel (pun intended) of a dress behind.
(it looks 200% better off the hanger and on a body)

INC made gray look good.


i think gray its relatives are going to be what jewel tones were the past two years. Holiday event? Wear silver, slate, cadet, graphite, almost black, pewter, etc. want to make it pop? get the outfit in silk or satin whenever possible. Have those humongous stones along the neckline and a big cocktail ring, and you're done. Since the gray look connotes 'modern', make sure you have a skinny/sleek clutch; preferably in satin and is in the same family color-wise. The flap can have some goliath stones on it.

Now be careful with this trend. What I advise against are the mammoth stones in color. That looks tacky and contrived. now of course the clear ones aren't real diamonds or even CZ but please don't have what looks like an iced out fruit salad on your clothes.
