Fashion Friday {Deco Cravings, Salt Style Guest Post}

  Hi there!  We are Steph (red head) and Jess (blond) from Salt Style where we blog all about the How, What, and Where in fashion and trends. 
We are thrilled to guest post about a trend we can't get enough of: Art Deco Jewelry We are anxiously awaiting the next season of Downton Abbey, particularly to get a glimpse of the fabulous costuming and jewelry.  The 1920s was an era when life was high-spirited and glamorous.  The economy was booming and women were expressing their individuality through fashion and jewelry.  Styles became bolder, sharper, and more masculine than in previous eras (think Great Gatsby).  The age of Art Deco jewelry was born featuring bold designs and geometric forms. Interestingly, the popularity of Downton Abbey has influenced the fashion trends of today.  The looks are modern and wearable.  We are excited to introduce our favorite Art Deco inspired pieces:

Throwback Thursday: Halloween Roundup {Simply Done=Well Done}

I love Halloween Decorating. And it seems like Halloween has really taken off as the main event in Seasonal decor for Fall. Each year Halloween decorations come out earlier and earlier and are more and more elaborate. I'm sure you can guess, I'm not a fan of tacky plastic decor...
even when we're talking about Halloween.

Here are my top picks for tasteful AND fun Halloween decorations.
Sometimes, simply done is well done.
