Camp Liz James

Flowers are in full bloom, people are off on Spring Break excursions and next thing you know it will be summer! For those of you with children summer is a time when you need to find activities to keep the kiddos busy so thus you look into summer camps. How about signing them up for a jewelry making camp? Yes, it’s true we have a Camp Liz James! If you have a child who loves to do hands on projects and needs a way to express their creativity, and avoid the dog days of summer boredom, this may be the perfect summer camp for you.

Taught by our very own Sherri Earle, at our LJ summer camp the students will not only learn the basic fundamentals of the art of jewelry making, but will learn how to channel their creativity. Your child will have the opportunity to come up with their own unique designs while documenting the entire process. They will also present their projects to the class which will help work on building confidence and public speaking skills. There are many valuable lessons to be learned at Camp Liz James that your child can take away with them. Who knows maybe they will become a top designer one day!

Oscar Delights

One night a year the lovely women and dashing men of Hollywood gather together to celebrate the greats in the industry. The Oscars is not only a night of awards, it is a night of dazzling fashion. Trends spotted at this years awards were lots of neutrals and glistening sparkle. Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence was glowing in a white bride-like beauty, courtesy of Dior Haute Couture as well as some of her fellow nominees who also opted for a neutral color palette.

Oscar DressesThese leading ladies were definitely looking flawless, but one thing that caught our eye at the Oscar’s was the bright pops of color. We took colorful inspiration from a few of the actresses from the Red Carpet and paired it with a more everyday look with a pair of our new Spring earrings to match.

To start it off we have Jennifer Garner whom all of us here at LJ just love, love, love! We love her even more in this Gucci Raspberry colored dress posed alongside her Oscar winning beau Ben Affleck.

Oscar StyleDress, Carol Earrings

The LJ take on this is a Magenta toned shorter cut dress with similar frills. Tie in the belt with a elegant dark toned earring such as our Carol earring made with a dark brown pyrite to top off the look.

Reese, always stunning, always timeless, and now gorgeous in this Cobalt Blue Louis Vuitton.

Blue Dress, Reese Earring

We were so inspired by the vibrant hue Reese choose this year, and by her usual sweet sophisticated style that we dubbed our new Reese Earring after her. Pair this earring with a asymmetrical cut short dress in the same cobalt blue to achieve a look even Reese would be excited about. The gray pearl of the earrings will play off the cool blue hues of the dress to give it a blue shade to pair even better with the ensemble.

Kerry Washington this year not only has shined in her performances on screen, but is glowing so gracefully in this coral Miu Miu.

Oscar Style3Coral Dress, Laci Earring

Coral is always such a fabulous color for the Spring and Summer season and Kerry pulled this off very well. Pairing a fun, short, high waisted dress with a solid gold, sassy earring like our Laci can give you a great Summer night on the town look.

Which pairing is your favorite? Who would you give the Best Dressed Award to at this years Oscars?

P.S. Don’t miss our Spring Collection Launch March 22nd!
