style: investment pieces

July 29, 2015

I rarely wear anything that is flashy; my wardrobe selections have always been subtle that easily blends into my minimal lifestyle. The only time I wear sparkly, sparkly is NYE because it’s required, haha!

My whole subtle thing also applies my jewelry selections, which I do not have an outstanding collection of.

The whole midi-rings and simple pieces have been trending for months – no, maybe years now, and as much as I hate diving into a trend, this one I could not resists due to the simple designs.

I have been on the hunt for quality jewelry for a long time. In the recent months, I have been asking around and reading up on things, when the beaut Cynthia, beauty bogger at cynthialions, mentioned that she picked up her rings from Catbird in Brooklyn.

I became a curious cat – did my research and all of that jazz before committing to a purchase. You have to be particular when hunting for jewelry or any accessory for that matter. Especially when things are not real gold because it tends to fade and make your fingers, wrist, neck or whatever body part green!

As much as it painfully hurts me to drop more than a certain amount on certain things, I know it is worth every cent because quality triumphs quantity in this case. There are certain things you can be frugal about – such as paper towels that you use up and dispose. Then there are certain things like a solid white-tee and simple statement pieces that can be recycled in your daily wardrobe that is worth splurging in.

Or maybe this is what I tell myself…

But I am so happy with my purchase! I got Catbird’s Threadbare’s Ring in Rose Gold:

You might have seen this image on instagram posted yesterday. Random side note, for those who follow fashion news – CFDA selected Catbird as part of their new members. You can read about that fashion news here.

I truly admire the minimalism craft – I am not a gold person because I’ve gotten super tanned this summer, but the rose gold is fitting. For more ring inspiration, I created a whole imagery board showcasing ways to style Catbird’s stackable rings. You can find that here on my Pintrest.

Typically, I never share about clothing and accessories purchases, but… you know – whatever. Had a couple inquiries since the share yesterday, so here is the full on post!

Happy Hump Day, beauts! More entries coming your way (I hope you’ll like) (:
