Shadora Jewelry Reviews: I now understand the “fake” rumors

Friday, January 18th, 2013

shadora-jewelry-reviews

It’s actually not fake, but this jewelry isn’t high-quality. This is a honest review of why these items are okay, but not amazing.

Shadora.com offers what they call “fabulous finds at impossibly low prices.” With a pair of White Sapphire and silver studs in my hands, I’m ready to give my ruling to add to Shadora jewelry reviews.

Shadora.com says it offers real gemstones that is not costume jewelry, and I have no reason not to believe them. But then why are people are googling for “Shadora Fake Jewelry”? Well, probably because when something seems too good to be true it often is. Here, I think they walk the line.

It’s not about whether their jewelery is fake, it’s about the quality of their real jewelry. They use real gold, silver and gemstones. But I believe these are lab-created gemstones. The way they assemble the jewelry also minimizes their use of metal to save on cost. So, it’s all technically real, but they’ve found ways to give you these low prices. It’s the quality that isn’t so great. I would purchase from there if it was for me, but this is not jewelry yo ... Read More

Cute Outfit Ideas for Spring 2012 – Emily Fields, Cece, Aria Montgomery Fashion

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

cute outfit ideas for spring 2012

Here are two fool-proof outfit ideas for spring 2012. Just try not to go overboard on buying great Butter nail polishes (because it can happen, and it’s…well, no, it’s not tragic at all, actually. They are AMAZING.)

This first outfit utilizes a long printed maxi dress that you probably already own from last summer. Then you take a cropped jacket, and pile on a large gold statement necklace for the entire downtown-city-boho-chic look! And I included a Butter nail polish in this fabulous dark turquoise because I love Butter nail polish colors. TV characters that might wear this include: Emily Fields from Pretty Little Liars when dressing up for a date (see: How to dress like Emily Fields), Alex from Happy Endings (see: How to dress like Alex Happy Endings Fashion) or Cece from New Girl (Cece New Girl fashion.)

Outfit Idea #1

  • Parker Long Cami Dress
  • Kenneth Cole New York Mixed Media Moto Jacket
  • BCBGeneration Beach Bum Gold Fringe Necklace
  • Butter London 3 Free Lacquer Nail Polish in Thames

    Butterfly Hair Accessories and How to Wear Butterfly Clips in Pics

    Monday, February 27th, 2012

    butterfly hair accessories

    At an early age, I kept binders of inspiration imagery. One of my favorite magazine tear-out’s was a shopping trip that Sofia Coppola did where she picked up some cheap flower hair clips from China Town. They were so unique and vibrant – but I had no clue where to get some for myself. (This was back in the 90’s.) But now that we have online shopping and there are so many great handmade makers on sites like Etsy, it’s hard to pick which butterfly accessories I love the most. Seeing the way the women style their hair to wear them is all so inspiring in itself, it makes me think I ought to make my hair feel fancy (kind of a natural, woodland fairy kind of fancy – though) more often. These images show you how to wear butterfly clips in many different ways. So, get inspired!

    To get in the “romantical”  kind of mood you might be seeking, I suggest listening to “Honey and the Moon” by Joseph Arthur.
