What Inspires You?

- Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Inspiration is all around us, that much is certain. But what inspires one may not inspire another. A writer may be inspired by overhearing a conversation, while a graphic designer might get inspired by the way tall blades of grass look. Each of us views the world through a different set of eyes, so different things will trigger those places in our minds that encourage us to create, move, take a chance or do whatever it is that we need to do.

Many of our boho style jewelry was inspired by natural elements. The appropriately named Montauk Pebble Necklace, recently featured in Nylon magazine, was inspired by the gorgeous oasis of Montauk, our Roman Glass Slice Necklace was inspired by the beautiful beaches of Mexico.

And while the ocean is perfect inspiration for all things beautiful, it’s not just the scenery that inspires our designer to create. Since Tahitian pearls are known for providing protection and good luck when you’re in the water, Pame Designs offers lots of beach jewelry that features them, such as the Triple Tahitian Pearl Wrap. The Oblong Pave Nugget, one of our most popular pieces. was inspired by some natural stones we thought would look better with a little sparkle.

For some, it’s not art that needs creating or jewelry that needs designing. Some people may need inspiration to do something they’ve resolved to do this year, like finding a new job or getting into shape. They may look to traditional places for inspiration, such as others’ success stories or motivational quotes. Or, something more serendipitous may may get inspired by a magazine cover, take a yoga class, fall in love with the practice and get into shape in the process.

The beautiful thing about inspiration is that it can guide you to living your best life, doing amazing things and having meaningful experiences. But to be inspired, you’ve got to know how to find inspiration. A few good ways are:

  • Try new things. Step outside of your comfort zone once in awhile. Take a dance class, try new recipes or start to learn a new language.
  • Take a camera out for a walk and photograph everything that looks beautiful to you.
  • Read books, blogs and articles about people who have overcome obstacles and achieved greatness.
  • Watch inspirational speeches, like TED talks.
  • Have coffee with your best friends and ask them what they’re most grateful for.
  • Listen to music that moves you.
  • Take a solo vacation, even if it’s just for a weekend.
  • Reflect on everything you’ve accomplished in life and think about how you got there.
  • Buy some new fashion magazines and pay attention to the colors and patterns you like the most.
  • Read about different periods of history and different cultures.

So… what inspires you?

Hot Holiday Beauty Trends For 2013

- Friday, December 6, 2013

It’s hard to believe it, but in a few short weeks we’ll be saying goodbye to the year 2013. In the meantime, we’ll head to plenty of parties, attend some charity functions and celebrate the holidays with our loved ones. The holiday season is the perfect time to upgrade your style to something a little more magical. From the hottest holiday hairstyles to the perfect accessories, we’ll give you some inspiration for looking your best this time of year.

Hair Trends

Braids were huge throughout the year, and the holiday season is no exception. Get creative with the braided updos you’ve been wearing since summer by embellishing them with sparkly clips or small combs. If you prefer to wear your hair down and you’ve got some length, wear it sleek and straight with some product that makes it shine.

The top knot bun is also still trendy. Make it more festive with some small side twists. Wearing your hair in a top knot will make sure no one misses your chic celebrity earrings.

If you’re heading to a cocktail party or a glamorous gala, give your hair a deep side part and add some tight curls. Shake them out with your fingers and you’ll have elegant retro waves. Pin a sparkly clip on one side of your head and wear a pair of our Pave Hoops.

Make-Up Trends

When it comes to holiday make-up, two classic trends come to mind: red lipstick and glittery eyeshadow. Both are beautiful and elegant, though it’s best not to wear them at the same time. But for the 2013 holiday season, the trend to try is gold metallic eyeliner. Wear it both above and below the eye with a neutral eyeshadow and practically any lipstick. 

For a lip color that will outlast every sip of champagne and every bite of sugar cookie, try a lip stain. Lip stains have stolen the scene this year, and they’re a perfect pick for the holiday season. Just make sure your lips are well moisturized before you apply, or try a dual formula that has a conditioning balm with the stain. Your color will last much longer that way.

Accessories Trends

This year’s holidays accessories have one thing in common: it’s all about the gold. Shimmery gold clutches, gold pumps and stilettos, gold watches and gold chains are the holiday party staples this year. Our gold Crushed Cuff With Green Moss Agate will add a chic shimmer to any winter ensemble, or you could complement your manicure with five golden rings.

2013 has been the year of ornate accessories, and the holiday season is known for its glitzy shimmer. So go ahead and pile on your best bling and your chic jewelry. Statement necklaces, chandelier earrings and unique bracelet designs are all popular picks this year. As always, just make sure to wear the accessories that best complement your outfit and make you

What To Wear To Thanksgiving Dinner

- Friday, November 22, 2013

If you’re not in charge of hosting Thanksgiving for your friends and family this year, be thankful that the turkey and trimmings are someone else’s project. Going to someone else’s home for Thanksgiving dinner means you get to relax and enjoy being a guest. And while it’s tempting to show up in stretchy sweatpants, the last thing you want to do is arrive underdressed.

Dressing up for Thanksgiving will vary quite a bit from person to person depending on their destinations and family atmosphere. But whether you’re enjoying a casual afternoon meal at a crowded table in your mom’s kitchen or a fancy evening five course soiree at your husband’s boss’s house, Thanksgiving is a fun opportunity to express yourself through your sense of style. We’ll give you three examples of Thanksgiving scenarios complete with ideas for stylish—and comfortable—ensembles.

Scenario: Dinner with the boyfriend’s family

Obviously you want to impress the people who may become your in laws, but you don’t want to come across as pretentious or stuffy, especially if
you’ve never met them. Unless you know them to be very formal people, jeans are fine as long as you dress them up. Wear a lacy camisole or a v-neck tee, a fitted blazer and a pair of pumps or ankle boots. Accessorize with some everyday chic jewelry like our soft Pink Pearl Choker or the 9 Freshwater Pearl Wrap. You’ll look so classically stylish and put-together you’ll win his mother over before she even tries your green bean casserole.

Scenario: Dinner at your parents’ place

No matter how long it’s been since you’ve lived with your parents, going home for the holidays may seem like a free pass to show up to Thanksgiving dinner in yoga pants and a sweatshirt. But this is not the case. You want your family to treat you like the mature adult you are, not the troubled teen you once were. Still, there’s no rule against dressing comfortably, especially when you know your mother will serve you a second helping of her famous mashed potatoes without you even having to ask.

Slip on a long sweater, a pair of leggings or skinny jeans and a pair of over-the-knee boots. Wear a chic scarf around your neck and add some celebrity jewelry, like the Cut-Out Cuff worn by Kristin Davis. Finish off the look with a pair of Pave Hoops and pull your hair into a comfortable up-do to show them off.

Scenario: Dinner with your best friends

Nothing beats sharing a holiday with your bff’s. A Friendsgiving dinner is the perfect time to wear an outfit that’s trendy but not outrageous or uncomfortable. Wear a classic sweater, a flared leather skirt, tights, and boots or flats. Give the ensemble some urban edge by adding the Shipwreck Coin Replica necklace. Finish it off with a bold berry lipstick and enjoy your food-filled ladies’ night.

Three Celebrity Looks For Less

- Friday, November 15, 2013

We’ve all thumbed through the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, wishing we could wear the exact outfits of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities. And while some of their wardrobe pieces require endless budgets and personal stylists, the fact is, most of their looks can be copied for less than you’d expect to spend. You can get wardrobe basics, trendy pieces and even celebrity jewelry on a smaller budget than the stars have. Here are three top fashion icons and ideas for snagging their style:

1. Blake Lively. When it comes to current style icons, Blake Lively tops a lot of lists. She’s known for her well put-together, always on-trend ensembles. Whether she’s rocking a casual t-shirt and jeans or she’s all glammed up for a Hollywood premiere, Blake always makes her savvy style look effortless. 

To get Blake’s style without breaking the bank, dare to be different. Mix prints and try pairing contrasting colors together. The dotted pullover and houndstooth pants she’s wearing in this photo can be found at Forever 21 or H&M. We also know Blake would adore our Gwyneth Paltrow-approved Tahitian + South Sea Lariat. This chic jewelry is versatile, laid back and effortlessly classy, much like miss Lively herself.

2. Brooklyn Decker. This boho chic beauty is a known fan of Pame Designs and was photographed wearing our Oblong Nugget Necklace on the cover of Women’s Health magazine last May. This former Sports Illustrated model has carried her beachy style from the sand to the city streets, often photographed in stylish sundresses and sun hats. 

To get Brooklyn’s look for less, think casual-chic. Pair a bold yellow t-shirt with a printed skirt, or wear sparkly metallic ballet flats with jeans and a sweater. Keep accessories simple but stylish, like the Oblong Nugget Necklace Brooklyn loves. Comfort is essential for Brooklyn’s style, but she never ceases to look amazing.

3. Beyonce. This fierce fashionista must have the most covetable closet in the world these days. From Destiny’s Child to Sasha Fierce, Beyonce has had quite the style transformation over the years. This is a woman who is not afraid to celebrate her curves or embellish her ensembles with big, bold jewelry and shoes. Anyone who wishes to emulate Beyonce should not be afraid to mix things up. She’s been spotted in a blazer, leather shorts and heels combo—and it works.

To channel your inner Beyonce, invest in printed pants, leather or faux leather shorts, comfortable curve-hugging tops, and a few form-fitting frocks. Sport some sky high heels and learn how to strut in them comfortably. When it comes to jewelry, if there’s anyone who loves her bling, it’s Mrs. Carter. Layer on the trendy bangles and rock a sparking Deco Ring. You’ll be doing your “Single Ladies” dance like a pro in no time.

Chic Boho Style on Pinterest

- Monday, May 20, 2013

Where do you go for inspiration on how to combine jewelry to achieve a perfectly chic boho style? We’re betting you like to frequent the Pinterest website where visuals are what it’s all about. We found a great pinboard by contributor Susan Engle where you can see lots of different “flavors” of this trendy style. The “Bohemian” theme is, by its very nature, highly eclectic. It can draw on designs and materials from all over the globe while still maintaining its earthy, authentic feel. So, while the individual jewelry items and accessories you select are important, how you achieve your overall look by layering the right pieces is even more critical. As you scroll through the gorgeous pins on Susan’s board, you’ll notice a few common denominators:

Long, Long, Long Necklaces

If your necklace is long enough to get tangled in the handlebars of your bicycle, it’s totally Boho! Your longest necklace serves as a frame for all the shorter ones you layer on top. Beaded, pendant, and chain necklaces are all great choices that will swing and sway as you walk. 

Stacked Bangles and Cuffs

If you are a free spirit, chances are you gesticulate with your hands unselfconsciously as you speak (or dance). Adding lots of bracelets gives your movements even more emphasis. Get kinetic with your bangles to create a soundtrack for your life.

Leather and Feathers

Cold, hard metal and shiny, brittle beads need to be counterbalanced with more organic materials. Leather indicates that you are no thin-skinned socialite while colorful plumage shows that you aren’t afraid to stand out from the rest of the flock. Seashells also make an appearance in Boho beach jewelry to add the element of water.

Chunky Bouquet of Rings

Rings bring your fingers alive, so why stop with just one? If you wear a ring on every finger, no one will be able to tell if you’re married or engaged. This adds to your air of mystery and lets you flirt just a little! Semi-precious stones each have their own meaning, so you can carry a whole story in your hands.
