Jewelry Giveaway: Silver CZ Stud Earrings


By Abby and Elle

Jewelry manufacturer Anjolee has given us a CZ version of their diamond stud earrings to give away to one of our readers (U.S. residents only).

The box, which is impressive on its own — in it is a small display light that shines on the earrings when the box is opened — has been sitting on our desk for a few weeks now (frankly, the light is starting to dim because we keep playing with it, and we mention that for no other reason than to manage expectations for whoever wins the earrings). Anyway, staring at the earrings for so many weeks reminded Elle of “how she ended up with pierced ears.” Continue Reading »

Plus Size? Shop Your Shape!


IGIGI kelly_noirrose7821By Abby and Elle

A plus-size friend of ours recently asked us to help her find a dress for an event. She ranted about not being able to find clothes that fit well at the department stores. She also didn’t trust her instincts about what looks good on her and what doesn’t. She was downright frustrated, and rightly so.

Fashion Report from Italy: Funky!


DSC03708By Abby and Elle

This is the last of our fashion reports from Italy — at least until the next time we go, which hopefully won’t be too long because Italy is by far one of our top travel destinations.

What is it about Italy anyway that’s so endearing? (What isn’t? we suppose is the real question.) On this trip, Elle was eager (hell-bent is actually a better way to put it) to see an opera. She found tickets to La Boheme by Puccini, her favorite composer, which was playing for one night only at St. Mark’s English Church in Florence, and the date didn’t interfere with any other plans — what a stroke of double luck!

When Elle and the Love of Her Life, Arkady, arrived at the church, they discovered that, like all operatic performances at St. Mark’s, the opera was a benefit for a children’s home in Amala, a region in South India. The performers are all professional opera singers who donate both their time and talent. What’s more, the setting was extraordinary: intimate (maybe 50 people, tops) and Elle and Arkady had front-row seats.

Awestruck by the first half of the performance, Elle whispered to Arkady that the only thing that would make the evening “more perfect” was a glass of Prosecco, which they then agreed to have with dinner after the performance. And then a surprise: At intermission, the emcee invited the group into the lobby for refreshments, which included, yes, Prosecco! So there you have it: Italy! What’s not to love!
