It’s amazing how you can rejuvenate an old outfit when you throw a brand-spankin-new accessory into the mix. My favorite piece to spice things up? NECKLACES.

I just love themmmmmm. We’ve gone through the preppy silver charmed necklace phase, the Hollister-infused puka shell surf chokers — but this summer, I’m gettin’ an hippie vibe in the jewelry department. I’m talking tarnished, leathery, beaded, flower power…I know, it’s kind of hard to articulate, but I think you’ll see what I mean.

Check out this necklace from Forever 21.
It TOTALLY makes me think of a flower child, I don’t know about you all. Very cute, though!

Also lovin’ this necklace from Fossil:
Peace sign pendants are huuuuuge right now.

And THIS bevello newbie looks straight out of the ’70s:
Good call on the lime green! It was made by one of our independent designers, Foxy Originals. Very bright and eye-catching.

Anyone else have a great 70s fashion find? Leave it in the comments!

Bevellonians, meet my newest bevello must-have:

Ain’t she a beaut? I have to admit, I’m just a TINY bit biased by the awesome Carolina blue color. But beyond that, I love the empire waist and bubble! The shape would be flattering on anybody. Seriously — if you eat too much the night before, it totally doesn’t matter.


Please also note the bow. That is an instant +10 points. Nice choice of white for the embroidery — it complements the light blue perfectly!

The dress was made by one of our emerging designers, Miss Closet. Pair it with some cute strappy sandals (I choose these!) and go to the park. Or to the mall. Or to a football game. Or to the mailbox. Wherever you want to wear it, I don’t care — heads will turn!

You know what I can tell is going to be huge this summer? SHEER. I’m talking mesh, lace, chiffon — you name it. And the more striking the pattern, the better.

I love this top from Forever 21:

Betsey Rose Chiffon Halter Dress

Moonlight Blossom Top

The blue and yellow work so well together! Plus, you gotta love the oh-so-slimming tie sash around the waist. Only $18!

I am huge into Betsey Johnson, and I seriously covet this dress:

Betsey Rose Chiffon Halter Dress

Betsey Rose Chiffon Halter Dress

Yellow is going to be a great color this season, and I love the pink roses! It looks very lightweight, too. Yeah, it’s $250. A girl can dream, right?

And from our own closet, we’ve got this bevello beauty:

Betsey Rose Chiffon Halter Dress

Ivory Cream Lace Tie Blouse by Ryu

I love the way this top fits! It’s not super-tight so it looks really flowy and cute, which is prefect for summertime. Also loving the lace! On sale now for $35.

Let me tell you, wearing this light, airy stuff in this crazy, 90-degree North Carolina weather is just fine by me. So, there you have it, super cute AND practical. Does it get much better than that?

IT’S FINALLY GETTING WARMER. YES! We’re in that warm weather equinox — you know, the period between comfortably warm and miserably hot. And that means the shorts and sundresses are coming out!

I don’t know about you, but I’m so not ready to bare my winter-white legs to the world. It’s seriously time to start thinking about a tan.

But every summer I have the same battle with myself. Is having a real tan worth the sun damage? I’m terrified of skin cancer and absolutely refuse to contribute to my own premature aging, so laying out in the sun for an extended period of time and going to the tanning bed are pretty much out of the picture.

Fortunately for myself (and those of you who share my sentiment), Glamour has our backs. Just yesterday they posted a really great guide to achieving “Cannes Riviera Chic” (aka bronzed and beautiful) sans harmful UV rays.

One of the products they featured was Guerlain Terracotta Tan Enhancer Mist, a temporary on-the-go bronzer. It’s a bit pricey, though, at more than $50 a bottle.
guerlain_terracotta008
Also featured was Benefit’s Talk To The Tan creme, also an instant bronzer. This was a bit more affordable though, at about $26 a tube.

Anyone else got any suggestions? I’ve heard about spray tans from tanning salons, but do they actually look real?

bve,
Kelly

Love it!

Hey there!

I’m sorry I have been MIA, but exams have completely consumed my life the past two weeks. I decided to take a little study break and watch one of my guilty pleasures…The Real Housewives of New York! Love it! And while I was breaking from Media Ethics, I saw a preview for a new series–The Real Housewives of New Jersey and guess what one of the wives was wearing…

snapshot-2009-05-06-00-37-14I got so excited, because that is one of my favorite dresses from bevello’s Spring Collection! And there are only 2 left from http://www.bevello.com! So hurry and get one before they are gone!! Now I am back to studying…

bve,

Sometimes I get an idea of an outfit in my head and I can’t shake it until I have created the outfit!  So here’s what my brain has conjured up!

Solid Color long Maxi Dresses with bright colored solid or print scarves!

I ve seen this around in stores and also on ladies around town. I love it! Its comfy because the knit dresses are so simple to throw on. Usually most will accessorize with either a shrug sweater or cardigan. But Im proposing the dress paired with a scarf! Not a winter wonderland heavy scarf but a light gauzy, jersey knit or silk scarf!

This is a great option for an outdoor concert or BBQ. Its dressy and so comfortable! The scarf adds accessory interest and you don’t have to worry about a necklace! Throw on some sandels and some great big earrings. Maybe add a ring or two ? and some of those cheap sandels they have everywhere right now! Use it or lose it!
