Grand Avenue Jewelry

Thanks to Grand Avenue Jewelry for sponsoring this post.

I'm always looking for an excuse to get dressed up. If I had my way, every weekend in December would be booked with a party or gathering, any reason for a pretty dress, a pair of heels, and fabulous jewelry. When Grand Avenue Jewelry asked me if I'd be interested in styling a couple pieces from their latest collection, it was an immediate yes; gold and minimalistic has very much been my style as of late.

The pieces crafted from brass and double plated in 14 karat gold feel special enough for an evening out, but are also completely wearable for everyday. While I can sometimes be wary of plated jewelry, Grand Avenue describes their double electroplating process as being four times thicker than average, yet they keep their markups low enough that all the price points are under $100. Better quality jewelry that is kinder to my wallet certainly meets my approval!

  1. While I admittedly know that the focus of this post is your jewelry, which is lovely, I cannot take my eyes of this breathtaking dress. It's the only thing that I saw when scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed this morning and I had to click on this post immediately to get a better look at it. Everything about it really is perfect, but especially the colour - and I absolutely love that you had a fur wrap in a shade that coordinates so effortlessly with it. While I am not really a gown girl these days - I have a party to go to this coming weekend that requires me to wear a dress and I am already dreading it - I have to admit that you have me thinking I should revisit my position ;)

  2. You look stunning and so festive, love this color on you. The gold jewelry compliments it perfectly.


  3. I came RACING over to this post when I saw it on Instagram! This color, omg THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would totally say this is your power color!

  4. This outfit is so glamorous!! Seriously love the monochromatic burgundy and the stole was the perfect addition. And the jewelry pieces are beautiful! They make a statement yet minimal, which is how I like my jewelry!

  5. These pieces are so dainty and feminine, I love them! This whole look is stunning! I love the color of your dress, you are really channeling your inner starlet!

    xx, Elise

  6. You look amazing! and the jewelry is awesome!

  7. Now that's a fabulous necklace that really enhances the dress instead of detracting from it!!

  8. Ooh so pretty! I love the necklace! And the color of that dress is lovely! The fur is a perfect match

  9. I love the color of your dress ... It is so rich and festive. Also REALLY love that necklace. I might have to get it for myself :)


  10. I love the gold pieces! They're so simple yet elegant, and work perfectly with this dress!

  11. I agree with you -- I'd love to be dressed up at a fancy party every weekend this month. I love your hair back like this, and that necklace is divine. But because I have one similar, I really can't take my eyes off your Target faux fur scarf -- so chic.

  12. Pretty and simple jewelry is the perfect accessory for that statement purple dress! You look absolutely amazing!

  13. You look beautiful.. lovely jewelry.

  14. I love those pieces (and that gorgeous gown that you're sporting). They're so stunning in their simplicity. Also, now I really want an excuse to wear a gown...

  18. I'd heard about this brand here and there and wondered about the quality and styles. I love the dainty pieces you picked out and yet how they made a statement even against your glamorous ensemble. So beautiful!

  19. I absolutely love your necklace! So gorgeous and the color of your dress is amazing!


  20. Oh wow you look amazing Lyddie! The color is gorgeous on you and the fur is so glamorous. I love the necklace you are wearing!

  21. Beautiful jewelry pieces. I love the circle earrings!

  22. I love these jewelry pieces; they are so beautiful! & this dress is absolutely gorgeous on you, I love the color!

    cute & little

  23. What a stunning gown! The simple gold accessories are so perfect with it too! :) I like the colour combo, and the designs work so well with the dress too. I'm more of a homebody and introvert so while I admire the pretty party outfits on others, I prefer filling my Christmas calendar up with things at home or not too far from home, haha!

    Hope that you are having a nice start to your week! Our heatwave has finally ended which is a relief! :)

  24. LOVE LOVE THAT STUNNING DRESS AND TONE-ON-TONE LOOK YOU CREATED WITH IT USING THE BEAUTIFUL FAUX FUR SHAWL. And indeed those dainty jewelry pieces are beautiful. Like you, I wish every weekend would have an occasion for me to dress up! LOL You look beautiful, Lydia.

    Happy December and Happy Holiday Season to you! <3 Ada.

    P.S. Make sure you link up with me this Thursday for my Thursday Moda linkup. =)) Thanks.

  25. Wow!! That dress is absolutely stunning on you! I love the fur wrap too! They are perfect together. I am wary of gold plated jewelry too because it seems to wear off so quickly. It's nice that this brand has a thicker coating!

  26. What an elegant outfit Lydia! The jewel tone dress and gold necklace are a wonderful combination and so wearable to allll the holiday events!

  27. So lovely dear, simplistic, minimalist, but super elegant.

  28. Such a nice dress.
    I just got back home to find YET another wedding invitation.... this one's themed "tropical chic" or something like that. Your dress sans the fur would look marvelous for this. If you were only my neighbor.
