Friday Forecast: Dainty Jewels

KatWalkSF - Leslie Francesca

Who remembers the days of massive statement necklaces?

The big baubles or rhinestone collar necklaces.

Eh…I fully embraced this trend for years, but I am over it in a BIG way now.

Insert this adorable opal California necklace from local bay area babe, Leslie Francesa.

KatWalkSF - Marrin Costello JewelryThis lariat + choker combination has been on heavy rotation.

Just wait and see…

Les Méchantes Caftan

The infinity circle necklace from Waffles and Honey features a hammered circle + pairs well with tan skin. (eh…this picture is old)

KatWalkSF - Waffles and Honey X Ring

Layered ‘X-Rings’ with a glass of rosé.

Love these rings solo + stacked.

KatWalkSF - Joules Wellies

The choker + laritat combo again for the win, mixed with some vintage rings and a chunky knit.

KatWalkSF- Marrin Costello chokers

Choker/Choker/Lariat + a Net-A-Porter packaging bow for this simple and delicate look.

Will you be layering dainty jewels this season or sticking with a statement?

Bouclé

KatWalkSF - J. Crew Fringe

What exactly is bouclé?

Bouclé is both a yarn + a fabric made from it. The yarn is made from a length of loops of similar size which can range from tiny circlets to large curls. Bouclé is also the name of the fabric made from this type of yarn, especially fabric that maintains the looped appearance.

Now, no two boucle designs look exactly alike. This happens because many designers choose to mix more than one color of yarn to create a multicolor boucle jacket, adding a colorful or tweed appearance.

While this jacket is NOT Chanel, Coco Chanel made bouclé famous + it still serves as a classic fabric for the design house.

A Dreamy Denim Jacket

McGuire, Skywalker Leather Fringe-Trimmed Denim Jacket

When the denim jacket of your dreams is delivered by Santa Claus you:

1. Freak out and thank Santa (my mother, Lucy).

2. Throw it on, embrace the fringe + style it with all the silver and turquoise details.
