WHAT I LOVE RIGHT NOW

COLOR MOMENT: GOLD RUSH

GOLD: The sassiest neutral. All summer long I have been loving the sparkle and shine of gold accessories. The eye-catching effect of a look paired with a splash of gold is easy to pull off. Just take a look at these great finds below!

BANGLE JANGLE

It’s no secret that bangles are my very (very) favorite accessory. I rarely leave the house without a stack of at least 5 (note: bangles look better stacked in odd numbers!) on my wrist. Bangles can add a finishing touch to any look. You can pick one statement bangle (like this one) and wear it solo, or layer it up with other bracelets. I’m definitely a mixer and matcher when it comes to whats on my wrist. Different sizes, textures, and shapes – don’t be afraid to mix it up! 

YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT: RENNES

The latest “it bag” to hit the streets isn’t really a bag at all, it’s a pouch. This trend really blew up during this February’s fashion week (remember Taylor Tomasi Hill’s blue Céline version?), and it looks like it’s here to stay. Which is you should know about Rennes. The Etsy shop offers  handmade (out of her own home studio in Boston) leather pouches starting at just $40. You can choose from three different sizes,  and there’s a wide variety of color options. (She’s always adding new items, too, so be sure and check back if you don’t see what you’re looking for now.) I think the 12-inch pouch in sandy nubuck might be my favorite. Check out this little shop right here!

GIVEAWAY: SHEYNA EARRINGS

We’re kicking off this week with a fabulous giveaway from Sheyna jewelry! If you haven’t already shopped their site, I recommend you bookmark it now. The site has plenty of gorgeous baubles to check out, but the best part is that if you don’t find something you’re crazy about at first glance, you can design your own piece with their “Create” option. To get you started, Sheyna has offered to give one of Luella  & June’s readers a pair of these gorgeous Aqua Chalcedony earrings! I adore the aqua color, and the size is perfectly delicate. I would pair these with an all white look this summer!

FIRST LOOK: MICHAEL KORS JEWELRY

Finally! Michael Kors has designed some of the most beautiful clothes, bags, shoes and watches; it was only a matter of time before he made his mark on the jewelry world. MK’s jewelry line officially launches tomorrow on the Michael Kors website. I’ve been eyeing these gold pieces from his “Jet Set” line for awhile now. There’s also a silver line with a more urban, modernist appeal. Take a look here and be one of the first to show off your favorites from the Fall 2011 line.
