Look What I Got: In My Rocks Box Lately

It's been awhile since I've shared the contents of my monthly Rocks Box.  For those of you unfamiliar with Rocks Box, it's a monthly subscription service that sends you three pieces of designer jewelry each month.  It's sort of like Stitch Fix....except you can keep and wear the jewelry for up to two months!  If you like any of the pieces, you can purchase them for 20% off retail.  It's a great way to wear jewelry you normally would not spend the money on or discover new jewelry designers.  Sign up here and receive a $10 credit!
Dec 13 Rocks Box 
  • Circle Necklace: Lucas Jack ($66) - For some reason I did not wear this necklace....not even once.  This really surprised me because I LOVE Lucas Jack pieces.  I've actually kept three Lucas Jack pieces from previous Rocks Boxes (here, here & here).  I just don't wear enough autumnal colors like orange and brown I guess.
  • Goddess Stud Earrings Ishyara ($33) - I wore these earrings once and I thought my ear lobes were going to fall off.  They were just way too heavy!
  • Daphne Ring: Gorjana ($48) - I did actually wear this ring quite a bit.  However, I felt it was just a little too blah to spend $48 on it.

Jan 14 Rocks Box 
  • 3-Strand Turquoise Bracelet: David Aubrey ($88) (worn) - This bracelet just did not work for me.  The large stone was too bulky and the bracelet awkwardly twisted and fell around my wrist.  I think I made it about 15  minutes with this bracelet on.  However, it was beautiful and wonderfully made.  I was really happy to have a David Aubrey beauty grace my arm....even if only for a little while.
  • Sea Stripe Circle Studs: Gorjana ($24) (worn) - I really wanted to like these earrings....especially for the price.  They were so perfect and neutral, without being boring.  However, they drooped on my ear lobes.
  • To Infinity Ring: Urban Gem ($14) (worn) - I really really really wanted to like this ring.  You never get anything this budget friendly in a Rocks Box.  However, there was a reason this ring was budget friendly.  The gold coating on the ring rubbed off on the bottom after just a few wears!

Feb 14 Rocks Box
  • Five Station Necklace: House of Harlow ($66) (worn) - Although I love this necklace, I feel like I have seen on every blogger and their mother.  And I've seen knock-offs on every blogger and their sister.
  • Buckley Ring: Gorjana ($48) (worn) - I loved this ring.  I wore it almost everyday during the month I had this box.  I would have kept it....if not for the next beauties.
  • Petra Earrings: Loren Hope ($54) (worn): Holy crap.  Loren Hope is now my,  hands down, favorite jewelry designer.  (Sorry Lucas Jack and Kate Spade).  I pretty much decided to keep these earrings within seconds of opening up this box.
After a disappointing November and December...I though about cancelling Rocks Box in 2014.  However, the ladies over there really picked up their game for January (and have been hitting it out of the park ever since).  I will never doubt you again Rocks Box.

Fitting in at the Slots

Leopard Coat: c/o Zappos (worn, exact) | Shoes: (worn) | Jeans: Old Navy (worn, similar) | Necklace: via RocksBox (sign up here) | Bracelet: Banana Republic (worn, exact)

I have been wearing the crap out of this leopard coat ever since I got it from Zappos.  It's the perfect weight and length.  And it has the perfect amount of geriatric sass that I look for in my clothing.  The Scot agrees.  He has informed me a few weekends ago in Atlantic City that I "fit right in" with the old ladies at the slots.

Beer and Unicorns

Last weekend I ventured down to Atlantic City for the annual beer festival.  So, what does one wear to a beer festival?

Tee: IWYP | Necklace: StyleLately (worn, similar here & here) | 
Blazer: Calvin Klein via TJ Maxx (worn, similar) | Purse: Olivia & Joy via TJ Maxx (worn)

I feel like the answer is pretty obvious: a unicorn shirt and Converse sneakers.  I mean, beer and unicorns go together like peanut butter and jelly.  And because I can never be under-accessorized, I had to throw on a blazer and a statement necklace.

Favorite Fashion Friday Link Up #46

I took a little unintended hiatus last week from Favorite Fashion Friday (i.e. I forgot to schedule the post and then left for the weekend).  But, I'm BACK!  And here's my favorite outfit from last two weeks ago.  It comes from High Heels and Training Wheels.  I'm just a sucker for a big floppy hat.
