YSL Arty Gold Plated Ring – $290
Oasap Golden Tone Oversized Ring – $21
As a huge fan of chunky rings, I have long
worshipped loved the look of the YSL Gold Plated Arty ring. Sadly, I don’t love the almost $300 price tag. Well, Oasap now makes an alternative which is much easier on the pocketbook. Sure it’s total costume jewelry and may fall apart, chip off or break after some wear and tear. But, at $21, it’s a fun alternative while it lasts! And at that price, perhaps you should consider stacking up on a few in different colors.
Here’s a few images of the YSL ring in all its glory…
Oh ring, why are you so amazing?
I’ve always loved the detail a pair of earrings can add to an outfit. I often find myself wearing big earrings because they add a fun, whimsical element to whatever I put together. But sometimes smaller studs and more delicate pieces are also a fantastic, understated accessory to top off a look. For some delicate earring options, check out this selection from FreshTrends. Below are some pics of my own earrings as well as some earring looks I wish were mine!

I am forever on the lookout for anything which makes my hair soft and shiny. And, yesterday, I think I found it in the form of COCONUT OIL. Thanks to the endless knowledge of Pinterest, I had read about this little home remedy but had yet to give it a whirl. Let me tell you, I’m glad I did! My hair is so soft and manageable at the moment (2 words you’ll hear me say RARELY) it’s like I’ve borrowed someone else’s hair.
For your own coconut oil conditioning remedy, pick up a bottle of coconut oil at pretty much any grocery store. Trader Joe’s will likely be the least expensive. Use about a palm full (if your hair is long like mine) of the oil on your hair BEFORE you get in the shower. Just work it in from root to tips and leave it in for about 15-20 minutes. (You can also pin your hair up and put on a shower cap for added soaking in-ness.) Hop in the shower and shampoo and condition like normal! For an added moisturizing bonus, I also rubbed the oil all over my face and let it soak in leaving me with some pretty baby soft skin.
Huh, I wonder what else coconut oil can do…solve word peace? MAYBE.
Okay you guys, I am THE WORST. I have been horribly remiss at posting lately. While I get my act together, here’s a little round up of iPhone and iPad outfit snaps from the past few weeks.
And, seriously, LOOK AT THE CUTENESS…
Wish she was mine, but she’s not. If you’re near LA, she can be yours though!
Today’s Style Crush is all about Tami Taylor and her awesome collection of jeans. And by Tami, of course I mean
Connie Britton Rayna James (Texas forever, y’all.) I really like where they’ve taken Rayna’s style on Nashville; she is down home Tennessee with just the right amount of edge and sleekness. Like every great country music legend, Rayna loves her some denim. My favorites are her growing collection of printed jeans but I also adore all the slightly distressed denim choices as well. To get your hands on a pair of actual Rayna jeans, she wears these J.Brand 811 Brocade jeans above or these 7 for all Mankind Glossy Snakeskin jeans below.
For some other Rayna inspired options, try these 7 Skinny Lace-Jacquard jeans (on sale for $82, ya’ll!), J.Brand Power Stretch Lace jeans (ooo double meaning, y’all), Genetic Denim Racquel jeans or these 7 Moon Metal Velvet jeans.
Since I’m from the south, I will forever have me a soft spot for some diva country music with a healthy dash of rhinestones thrown in.
There are no jeans in this last picture. But can we all just take a moment to be uber jealous of the hair?
Did I title this post Style Crush? Clearly I meant Hair Crush, y’all.
