Ask Liz James!

Answers to the questions jewelry-lovers ask LJ all the time.

L. James: I have a few actually.  I love to take a vintage piece or a family heirloom and pair them with pieces from my collection. Right now, I am wearing a costume cuff with a tribal print on it from my grandmother. The cuff is ancient, but paired with my Lexie or Libby bracelets it pops.

L. James: Some girls prefer diamonds, some rubies, but I am all about what makes a woman feel confident and comfortable. If it’s a man’s watch, go with it. 

L. James: I have a fabulous team of ladies that inspire me (wink, wink), support me, and encourage me every day. Travel plays a huge part in what I make, too. Oh, and I am loving all the gorgeous instagrams these days.

L. James: I may or may not be holding three sketches in my hands right now. You’ll just have to stay very tuned to see what I have in store next.

Liz James Essentials (Summer Edition)

Hello, sunshines. Liz James here.

Every girl needs her seasonal list of must haves, especially if you summer in Texas. I always pack practical (but above all FUN) essentials to withstand the heat with style and grace.

This summer I can’t live without the following:

1.) The ever cool — Chinchilly — from essie

2.) My Dianna earrings to make a day to night transition super easy

4 and 6.) Lip gloss with sunglasses is my insta-glam look. (Ray Ban and Nars)

3 and 5) Delicate accessories with a slightly boho vibe. (The Chole and The Julie)

7.) Clinque SUNSCREEN, always.

9.) Something cute from TB to put it all in.

10.) I am FINALLY reading The Help … so I will be in-the-know for the movie.

Hope you all are staying cool!

A How-To from Liz James

Liz James here … So good to see you again! I am excited to announce that I, Liz James, will be putting in my two cents a bit more around here. I do hope you’ll subscribe and stay awhile. Just type your email in the box to the right, and I promise to keep you in the LJ loop with trends, sales, and even giveaways.

This week, I am very into statement pieces with staying power. Every girl needs a piece that goes with her everywhere from bike rides, to picnics, to birthdays, to weddings … to dates, to dinner … I think you get my drift. I raided my closet the other day just to show you that My Maggie necklace is the piece to do it. Don’t you agree?

You can get my Maggie necklace right HERE.

As for my other closet essentials … find those here: sailor tee, denim, tote, sandals, pink party dress, nude handbag, nude flats, green cocktail dress, bow pumps, glitter clutch

Happy shopping!
