Here's an unlikely story: something sparkly, blue, and Miu Miu, and I'm about to pooh-pooh. I came across this Miu Miu Jeweled Buckle Belt ($302) and thought it was just so . . . Claire's Boutique. I think it's the pastel blue hue that makes it borderline tacky. Is that way harsh, Tai?
Come Party With Me: Bedazzle Bonanza — Invite Some people may think a bad economy is not a very good time to host a party; however, PartySugar and I disagree. Now, more than ever, is the perfect time to gather up a group of friends and host an affordable get-together. That's why we're throwing a Bedazzling bonanza!
I'm addicted to sparkle. No sparkle gets past me. On the New York runways I witnessed various strategic sparkles. Sequins, beading, pailletes, and rhinestones provided a mini punch strategically placed on shoulders, lapels, waists, and sleeves. This is the ideal way to tackle sparkle without feeling overkill. Shoulders were the most popular; notice the cool contrast of this black sparkly cluster atop Akiko Ogawa's femme pink sweater.
You are a complex creature, so why keep your jewelry simple? Multifaceted stones provide plenty of brilliance to necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Fab says: pile, it, on. Or, notice how quickly a complex bracelet like this one can jazz up a simple heather gray tee. Embrace your multifaceted tendencies.

I'll start you off with this Kenneth Jay Lane Disco Ball Ring ($77) because it's bold, sassy, and fun — just like me!

Since I can remember I have been drawn to riddle me rhinestones. I think that was an early sign I was going to always succumb to beautiful things and therefore work in fashion! The real beauty of rhinestones is that they are inexpensive, well, depending on what you get. But they come in a range of quality and price; as exhibited by the jewels on the Christian Dior RTW runway and our Look for Less. With the holiday season upon us, it's time to sparkle ladies!
What girl can resist a smattering of big jewels? Not too many I know. This Burberry Ashcombe Clutch, $620, is making me have second thoughts, though, which is quite the accomplishment. There's no rhyme or reason to the way the jewels are placed, and there's a little too much silver for my taste, between the gems, the hardware, and the top of the clutch. What about you, are you a fan?
Jewelry is all about the chunky and funky for Fall, so this vintage treasure could pass for new! The gold-tone teardrop backing is glammed up with three huge haphazardly arranged purple rhinestones. I love this pendant, because putting it on will take the simplest outfit and make it unique, easy as 1-2-3 rhinestones!
The current bidding price is at $7.95 and the auction ends on Sunday, September 30.
This is some heavy-duty costume jewelry. Literally: between the heavy chain and progressively larger sapphire and purple crystals, this Gerard Yosca Crystal Link Necklace, $265, could way a girl down, if not paired with a simple, streamlined ensemble. I do like the jewel tone colors of the crystals, though, and if rocked right, this necklace could be quite stunning. What do you think?
