Don't forget to accessorize

Today I've joined up with Megan to present a mini look book showcasing pieces from Marrin Costello, an LA based jewelry designer.

While Meg certainly isn't a stranger on my blog, this the first time we've done a collaboration like this and I'm really excited to share it with you! Marrin's pieces are delicate, feminine, and edgy. For the first look, I'm styling the gold Saratoga bracelet, an equestrian piece that looks great on it's own, but can easily be layered up (as I so often do). Meg is wearing the gold Helix necklace, which makes a striking contrast against her recently acquired and adorable Jason Wu dress.

For the second look, I have on the Baby Bowser bracelet, gold spike beads pointing every which way are the perfect tough-but-feminine accessory to my asymmetrical LBD. Continuing with the spikes, Meg has the silver clustered Stellar ring, along with the coordinating Midi rings. And yes, I did intentionally match my shoes to Megan's skirt!

A big thanks to Marrin for sharing your fabulous jewelry with us! I hope you all go and check out her site, where all the pieces are made in the USA, and remember, don't forget to accessorize!

  1. You both coordinate so well in this post! I love your bracelet - it is definitely reminiscent of a Gucci piece and so lovely!

  2. LOVE her ring in the 2nd outfit!!

    Her pieces are really beautiful and it's always good to support small businesses and crafty people!

  3. This was so fun! And we both look awesome, if I do say so myself ;)

  4. Such a lovely post! Also, that first bag...obsessed!




  5. What gorgeous pieces! Both you and Megan look stunning as usual!

  6. What a fun collaboration! These are beautiful pieces. And I really like your classic look with the black shorts and white button-down.

  7. You both look stunning and I love the ring in the 3rd image. So sassy! xo

  8. Love both of these looks! The jewelry is all gorgeous, especially both bracelets you are wearing!

  9. You two look adorable and I love all the pretty and dainty jewels.

  10. I have never come across a jewelry-based outfit post that I didn't love and this one is no exception - especially, I admit, because all of the outfits are so neutral (I know, I know) which really lets the jewelry take centre stage. And the pieces really are beautiful. I especially love your first bracelet - so perfectly classic!

  11. These pieces are so pretty! I love your necklace and the second bracelet you are wearing!

  12. You both look fabulous, and the jewelry is so gorgeous! It also looks like you were having a great time too--that last pic is adorable!

  13. You both look fab! I love accessories (or excessories as Rachel Zoe says). I adore all of these pieces.

  14. Both of you ladies look great! Love the great jewelry pieces.


  15. GOOD JON GIRLS! Love the collaboration and everything is so beautiful <3



  17. Love her pieces- you styled 'em perfectly. You both are total babes here! :)


  18. They have some gorgeous jewels. What a fun photo-shoot with a fellow blogger and fashion friend. I love your LBD, both pairs of shoes and I also love knotting a white blouse over a bottom, like you did, especially over a black bottom. It is a timeless, classic look.

  19. Both the bracelet and necklace are very pretty! Great styling by the both of you.

  20. This is the bracelet I saw on Twitter ! I loved it.
    I am going to see more of it now, when I am considering on buying something, I usually have to see it on my pc.
