5 Unique Jewelry Pieces For Every Season

5 Unique Jewelry Pieces For Every Season

Pair this stunning jewelry with any outfit to instantly look chic, sophisticated and edgy.

Girls, let's be honest – aren't you tired of always wearing the same old boring bracelets, locket necklaces and stack rings at the mall? And always buying them in hoards once they land in the 50 percent off, buy-one-get-one-free rack? It's time to treat yourself to something new, something flashy and fantastic while still subdued and classy.

Starting with your palms up, say hello to your edgy new bling!

1. Palm Cuff

Jennifer Lawrence wore this very same diamond-encrusted gold cuff at her "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" movie premiere in Italy. While this particular statement piece is a whopping $21,050, you can find your own fabulous (and affordable) palm cuff for $12 or less on Etsy. This bit of unexpected bling scintillates a cool, collected vibe that pairs well with any outfit – casual or formal.

2. Arm Harness

Paired with thigh harness jewelry, arm harnesses are a perfect mix of peek-a-boo and stunning when it comes to making a bejeweled statement. They aren't clunky like bracelets or clanky like earrings. An arm harness instantly spices up any maxi dress with a glint of its chain, and luckily, it comes in various geometric forms to mix and match with patterns! Snag your first for less than $2 at AliExpress.

3. Body Chain

This trend was a big hit during the summer, but who says you can't sport body chains all year long? Throw on a casual one-shade shirt or dress, and slip a body chain over it to level up your ensemble from plain to posh. Forever 21 is clearing out its collection at a starting price of $6.90, so if you're looking for a steal this winter, then that's one sale you won't want to miss!

4. Shoulder Chain

If you want to look polished and ornately embellished all at once, spend as little as $1.15 to purchase a shoulder chain piece on eBay. Pull this look off once, and you'll feel like a queen for life. People will marvel at the sight of this piece wherever you go, whether it's paired with a black sweater for an office party or shimmering over a low-cut dress at the ball.

5. Long Chain Choker

This necklace gives you the best of both worlds: jaw-dropping length to give the illusion of a longer neck and a casual curve around the back to pull the look together. Unfortunately, this darling piece is hard to find. An easier alternative to get the look would involve the layering technique – pairing one choker with a single, long-chain necklace. Throw in a couple more necklaces, and you'll effortlessly appear boho chic.

Mix and match all these jewelry trends to find your perfect look for this season!

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning. You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

There's One Shoe Brand I Swear By As A Petite Woman

Sharing a hidden gem with all the petite ladies out there!


Shoe shopping has been, without a doubt, an incredible challenge for me. I stopped growing early at a mere four foot and eleven inches tall. I learned to embrace my petite stature, but finding mature-looking shoes that fit my size two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half feet can be quite the hassle. Of course, purchasing children's' gym shoes and booties for a lower price is a plus, but I have yet to come across a single in-person store near me that carries my petite needs.

Cinderella of Boston, an online petite shoe shop based in the U.S. offering sizes two-and-half to five-and-a-half, though remote from my Chicagoland home, has been my saving grace.

I've been one of their loyal customers for eight years, with the many pairs I've purchased from them still in-tact. Like any shoe you wear often, there's some wear-and-tear, but some paint touchups and heel replacements when needed are to be expected. Many of their in-season shoes range anywhere from forty to eighty dollars with a few exceptions, such as leather boots that are marked up. Their sale rack has discounted products if you're hoping to find lower prices of any potential leftovers.

From what I've observed over the years, they usually refresh their catalog for each of the four seasons, boasting around seventy new pairs each time. They feature a wide range from gym shoes to flats to wedges to various heel heights. They offer both traditional, classic styles and on-trend looks, allowing you to have a fashionable variety to choose to complete officewear or cap off your outfit for that special formal event.

I know there aren't many petite women as tiny in the foot department as me in my own circle, but I know there are plenty of you out there facing the same issue I am. Please consider ordering a pair, and if you don't like them or pick the wrong size, you can always send them back. Truthfully, I don't always find my right size on the first try, even as a regular customer, because we all know that each shoe design fits slightly differently at almost every store, but once you find that pair that fits like a glove then you can treat the search as a long-term investment. It's worth a shot, isn't it?
