Summer Accessory Style: Shopping for Fashionable Jewelry

Summer is here with its shimmering parties, graduations and special events.  If you love fashion, like me, it’s literally the season of the bling! You don’t have to go shopping for new clothes, all you need is the right accessory to sparkle and make a fashion statement all summer long. To do that, I recently spent an afternoon at Robbins Brothers in Torrance, CA looking through their gorgeous jewelry selection. Although Robbins Brothers is renowned for their gorgeous engagement rings, they have many more items in their stores (and on their website) for fashionable wear. They have gorgeous earrings, vintage styled rings, diamond studs, hoop earrings and much more.  Some of you may wonder, why visit a jeweler when you can just get inexpensive costume jewelry at a fast fashion retailer?  Well, just like Coco Chanel thought that every woman should invest in one great dress, a little black dress, that she could wear everywhere, I think every woman should invest in at least one piece of quality jewelry that she can wear everywhere from christenings (think the Duchess of Cambridge with her sapphire ring ) to an elegant evening out.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Opens to Public on July 17

Nordstrom_Anniversary_Sale

Save the date: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public on July 17, 2015

This is a shopping public service announcement for my beloved readers, because you asked, remember the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public on July 17, 2015. My advice, get into the Nordstrom website online right at 11:59 pm on July 16 so that when the clock rolls over to midnight on July 17th. In my experience, that is how you get in early to get what you want. The website has buckled during previous sales, so a little advance planning is worth while. The sale features top designers and Nordstrom Exclusives. See The Recessionista’s top picks here.  I’ve been shopping early access all week, and I can tell you , there is still plenty of good stuff left.  Good luck Darlings!

On July 15, Amazon will offer special deals to their prime customers.

Savvy consumers may benefit from tomorrow’s “Christmas in July “24 hour sale from both AMAZON and Walmart.

If you  cancel your subscription before it renews you can avoid the $99 annual membership charge.  AMAZON is making all these great offers as a marketing push to sign-up PRIME members, but you can sign-up and just use the trial membership to shop  Here’s what’s on our radar for deals.

David Beckham Filming with Kevin Hart for New H&M Campaign

David Beckham is back to modeling for H&M, but this time he’s fully clothed posing with comedian Kevin Hart.  Our spies tell us that the photos are for the “Modern Essentials Selected By David Beckham” campaign where Beckham will show our menswear of H&M in a series of ads. The campaign and collection. will be released later this year. David and Kevin are on the second of a two day shoot, which is taking place in New York City.  It’s all very exciting, but I miss Beckham in his briefs and tattoos.  It’s a bit of a let down to see Beckham fully clothing in an H&M Campaign.
