Gweneth, How We Love Thee

We can no longer ignore one of our newest favorites here at the LJ studio, the Gweneth! Since her debut in the Fall 2012 line she has received nothing but adoring looks, and fabulous compliments. This necklace which is made with glimmering, gray labradorite stones and handmade 14kt gold-filled wire rings, is the perfect selection to take you from your day at the office to your night in the city.

Keeping a nice monochromatic theme we took a daytime at the office outfit with a classy skirt and blouse, to a night in the city with black skinny jeans, flats and a blazer. Just add the Gweneth! As most of our pieces go you can always wear the Gweneth long, or doubled for a shorter look.

So what would you wear your Gweneth with?

LJ Spotted on the Western Front

Liz James here again… in the studio we are coming off a long weekend and receiving great press! On news stands starting this past weekend is the October issue of Cowboys & Indians. Featured on the cover of the issue is the gorgeous Kristin Chenoweth and we had the pleasure of getting our Annie necklace photographed in the Fall fashion section. Our little Annie is all grown up and ready for her spotlight!

With an agate stone hanging from an antique brass chain and then tied to braided leather, our Annie necklace has the perfect western flare that Cowboys & Indians is known for. Since no two agate stones are exactly alike you get a piece that is different in size, shape and color so it is just as unique as the person who adorns it.

Find our Annie in the Western Elegance section on page 137 along with all the other Cowboy & Indians western picks of the season.

Which Annie do you like best, and what would you wear yours with?

A Winter-White Fall

So says the age old rule, “You can’t wear white after Labor Day.” Well I’m sure any of today’s top designers would gladly disagree. For the Fall season you may think darks, reds, or oranges, but one top fashion this year is head-to-toe white. The winter-white out look was spotted all over the runways at the NY Fall Fashion shows, and will be seen on women all over once the cooler season rolls around. So lets white it out starting with our ears all the way down to our toes!

Cynthia Rowley, FlowerBlouse, Jeans, Clutch, Heels, Nail Polish, Coin Pearl Earrings, Emma Necklace, Jordan Bracelet

We love things crisp, clean and white here at LJ so we are loving the ladylike white looks of Fall like the one seen above at the Cynthia Rowley show during New York Fashion Week. We mixed up hues of white to make a great Fall look with a casual, yet dressy feel. You can also play up any outfit with jewels in tones of white, whether it be pearls or white coral such as our Emma Necklace. This year after Labor Day put the old age saying aside and proudly wear your whites!

How do you like to wear your whites?

Ear, Arm, and Eye Candy!

We are now into August with Fall swiftly approaching. LJ presents to you today the last of our new Fall Collection. These Fall baubles will be like candy for your eyes, ears.. and of course wrists! Our earrings and bracelets, like the necklaces, continue with some of the same cool blues, soft grays and darks.

Ellery, Tricia, Jordan

If you like a more delicate choice for what you lay on your wrist, these three ladies are an excellent pick! They can be worn separately, but make for great layering bracelets. With a couple of different colors to chose you can mix and match to create a perfect soft look.

Lyndi, Addison, Kate

The Lyndi and Kate bracelets can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet. They were designed to wrap around your wrist and give you multiple layers of color. The Addison gives the same look as a wrap piece, without actually having to wrap it which may work better for some.

Tina, Tricia

These dazzling “T” named earrings give you multiple choices of colors to best suit your mood, event, or outfit! Wear a solid gold pair of Tina’s to match with anything, or choose a sultry red garnet Tricia to mesh well with a fall inspired ensemble.

Cameron, Sarah, Bradie

If you are looking for a fun, bold look with a pop of color these dangles will be a good match for you. With just the right amount of chain mixed with stones you get the movement and the color you want out of any eye-catching earring.

So this completes the introduction of our complete Fall Line. What earrings or bracelets are your favorites?

See How They Fall

Picking up where we left off last week, we are continuing to introduce the newest additions to the Liz James family. These gals will keep you looking stylish draped gracefully around your neck all through the Fall season and into the rest of the year. LJ is here, proudly, to show off our neck candy for Fall 2012!

Halle, Rose, Kelsey

These beauties are accented by either a handmade Spanish cross medallion, St. Christopher medal, or both! They are made longer and can be worn doubled for maximum versatility!

Tricia, Celeste, Hannah

If the small and dainty things in life are more your style then you will love the new Tricia’s, Celeste’s, and Hannah’s. These ladies are great for a small touch of glitz and glamour and also make a fantastic layering piece.

Carrie, Rowan, Gweneth

If you love stones with a pop of color, or are into more of a non-symmetrical look you may want to get to know these three ladies. Not only will they make a great statement, these necklaces will catch you lots of compliments!

Angie, Anne, Hillary, Jo

Charms and crosses are what these four pieces are about. Keep it simple with a small cross and coins, go glam with diamond crosses, or mix it up with large crosses, stones and coins.

Well there you have all the new neck decor for fall. We will continue to introduce our newest bracelets and earrings soon! Stay tuned…
