Whether it be through painting, music, dancing or even cooking, we all have a creative outlet of some sort that we use to express ourselves. Mine happens to be fashion. What we wear certainly doesn't define us, because it's what's on the inside that counts; however, the way we present ourselves does play a role in how we are perceived by others, and if done right, can make a powerful statement. You've probably heard the saying, "dress for success." And it's so true. If you feel confident on the inside, you won't let anything get in the way of you achieving everything you set out to do.
You can be wearing a neutral outfit with a colorful bag, or a head-to-toe denim look with a pair of heels. It may or may not be intentional, but you're sending a message to others about who you are and how you're feeling at that moment.
Wearing bold jewelry is like wearing armor. I'm ready to conquer anything the day brings me. One of my favorite brands for statement jewelry is SiammPatra, and she just launched her new 'Escape' collection, and I'm totally obsessed. All of her pieces are so unique and unlike anything you've seen on the market... guaranteed. This past year, I've become super close with the designer, Anita. Not only do I love her jewelry, but I relate to her on a personal level, which makes wearing her pieces all the more special. Like me, she believes in dancing to the beat of your own drum, embracing your uniqueness, and being a total #girlboss in everything you do.
This collection is very bold, chunky and diverse. For those of you who have been following me for a while, you'll know that I love gold, but I've been trying to up my silver wardrobe lately. My favorite piece from this collection are her crystal chain link earrings, which are mismatched. The crystal is on one side and the other side is an oversized chain link. SO my style. So rebellious. It gives me major "because I can" vibes.
It's a little hard to tell, but I'm wearing three different rings. Her chain link statement ring (as seen on your right), chain link accent band ring (your left, middle) and two-finger statement ring (also your left.) What I love about these is that they can be mixed and matched different ways. With SiammPatra, it's all about letting your creativity run wild and making it your own, which is what I'm all about. There's more pieces to her collection, which you can shop here, and everything comes in rhodium (aka silver) and gold.

Let's not forget to talk about this AMAZING ruffle mesh top from Storets. My step-dad always said, "if you were a fish, you would be the first to get caught on the hook." And it's true... I love glitter, sparkles, all that jazz. I'm such a girly girl #noshame
I'm in love with this maroon faux leather skirt, also by Storets. Their prices are super affordable, the quality is amazing, and their designs are (in my opinion) more interesting than many contemporary brands you see in stores that are way overpriced. You get a lot of fashion for the price you pay with Storets, so it's worth every penny.
This silver bag by From St Xavier is on repeat lately, especially when I'm sporting silver jewelry like today. It has a vintage feel to it with the rustic finish, and you can really see the quality of the craftsmanship with the intricate floral detailing. I've received more compliments on this little guy than I can count. And the price is amazing. It's also available in gold.
