Adorn yourself with jewelry!

Last summer I was at a party and this older woman came up to me and started telling me a joke. Now for the life of me, I can't remember the details of this joke, but I do remember the premise. In the joke the woman had clothed herself in excess, and at the punch line the older woman snickered. I squinted and looked at her, laughing just to be polite. As you would have it I had adorned myself with a large green and white vintage beaded necklace (which is one of my favorite purchases), gold disc earrings and a few bangles in various sizes, colors and styles which clinked around my wrist. Hmm...joke, huh? I'm not sure she wasn't referring to me when telling this joke. In fact, I’m pretty sure she was talking about me, given the little snicker as she walked away. However, I also walked away with a little twinkle in my eye and a bounce in my step, some people, will never understand and you know what that's fine by me!

Trend: Layering Jewelry.

I have coveted this trend for sometime. I don't mean putting on earrings and a bracelet. Let yourself go a little wild. Stack on bangles, wear two necklaces, do what you please! However, I must warn you there is a fine line between excess and being well put together. So proceed with caution and be tasteful. You don’t want to end up looking like you're wearing your jewelry box or you’ll be the one snickered at and for good reason.

Here are a few examples of how to layer jewelry:
