Happy February, loves! I love this month as it presents occasions to celebrate 2 of my favorite people; my mom and my hubs who are both born in February…as well as LOVE on Valentine’s Day, which I of course LOVE! Target and any paper store are a dangerous zone for me this month…give me all the X and O swag! I could go crazy sharing heart day gift ideas for the leading ladies in your life, (or yourself-yes you deserve it), but that has potential to go from a post to a short story. And so today I am sharing just one fabulous gift idea!
Monica Vinader is a British luxury jewelry brand opening a new category between fashion and fine jewelry. I personally am a huge fan of this category. I am not ready to pull the trigger on Cartier, however I would rather invest in quality statement pieces that I adore and will have forever, than crowd up my vanity with trendy fashion jewelry I will quickly outgrow. Vinader’s stylish contemporary designs have a diverse celebrity following. My first MV piece was her iconic friendship bracelet which I had engraved and absolutely adore (more deets in my past MV post featuring the bracelet).
These slender cocktail earrings add a pop of red-carpet style sparkle to any look. A delicate row of irregular shaped pink quartz gemstones are set in a 18ct rose gold vermeil on sterling silver. My ears are very sensitive, and these beauties are light weight and comfortable. They are no doubt eye-catching with their beautiful sparkle, but also not so dressy that they look odd with a casual outfit. Pair them with a simple sweater and pull your hair back in a low pony for an effortless feminine look. Or go big and throw on your favorite party dress to amp up the drama! No matter what look you are feeling…don’t forget to seal the deal with a pretty pink lip (I am wearing my current favorite by YSL beauty slim matte shade #16). I highly recommend checking out Monica Vinader for extra special quality pieces for yourself or an extra special someone. If you are not a big online shopper and prefer shopping in person, Chicago babes can find MV at Nordstrom.

All the X’s and O’s,
