statement jewelry under $50

February 24, 2014

DS underwent a little redesign over the weekend & I want to point a few  changes out before we get to the good stuff today. The comment section has moved; To leave a comment, click on the grey circle above the post ^^^^

The nav bar & all social media icons have been moved to the very top of the page. As you scroll through District Sparkle this bar will remain at the top of your page so you always have access to these links.

Lastly, the “Ask DS” button has moved to the right sidebar, immediately following the “About Me” section. To ask me anything about anything, click the “Ask Me Anything” button >>>>

…& now for the good stuff.

If you haven’t already heard, Capwell & Co has become the latest craze in affordable luxury. From their delicate stacking rings to the chunky statement necklaces, they’ve got ultra fun pieces for every taste. & the best part? The majority of their gems are under $50. Yes, under fifty. Five. Zero.

A few of my under $50 favorites are below, as well as a few stunners that are a little steeper in price point. But fear not, you savvy fashionistas: All of these pieces are under $80!

Some days I stand in my closet with a blank stare for longer than I care to admit. This morning was one of those days: Completely lethargic & uninspired. I even pulled up my Pinterest boards for a little outfit inspo with no luck. It’s just one of those days.


Even on those mornings when you’d rather crawl back into bed, it’s super easy to fake chic ’til you can climb back into your down pillow fortress 12 hours later. Slip into a few basics, like a white v-neck & boyfriend jeans & make your statement for the day with your winter coat. Nothing says “chi-iiiii-ic” [in the words of P'Trique] like a printed coat.

Whether or not you’re heading to Fashion Week, every woman’s purse should also double as a mini emergency kit. Ever woken up at your boyfriend’s place with no shoes to wear but the heels you wore the night before? Fail. Ever had a run in your tights on the way to an interview? Double fail. Ever gotten to the office & realized the wind wreaked havoc on your perfectly coifed hairstyle during the commute? Fail & maybe some tears. & then there’s the dead-phone-at-noon conundrum. Never again with this little contraption, people. Never again. Stock up on these essentials & you’ll be prepared for anything Monday throws your way.
