While I tend to shy away from bright, bold colors and gravitate towards gray, black or beige, this season I’m totally smitten with all things bright (picture a modern, more sophisticated spin on the 80’s neon trend). Best of all I’m lovin how easy it is to incorporate “happy colors” into any outfit, on any occasion, via accessories, scarves and even shoes. Tip: keep the outfit simple and let the color do all the work. Same goes for accessories – for a more reserved take on the trend, pair it with basics like a blazer or favorite jeans. Check out some of my favorite bright picks for this season from Lulu’s and how you can win a $200 Lulu’s gift card to get your brights!

A very special Summer giveaway from our friends at Twisted Silver! Check out these three incredible pieces (worth $120) that will definitely be an accesory fave year round. The Karma necklace: Delicate double-strand brass chain, embellished with a collection of dainty vintage finds. The 7 Bracelet: As seen in Lucky magazine are fantastic bangles linked together with large brass open links, with three Twisted discs. Lithe Long Brass Earrings: Two feather light oblongs of brass, captured by a brass link. Whether paired with shorts, tanks or a maxi dress, each piece has that perfect touch of vintage boho to make you a Summer standout! Check out what I’d wear these pieces with below!

Valentine’s Day may be over but that doesn’t mean you can’t still score some fabulous jewelry deals at Twisted Silver! My personal faves: The Broach and Attitude bracelets and one of you can win both of them for free! Although each bracelet has a ton of personality worn solo, my humble suggestion is to wear both together to capture that perfect chic/boho/rocker look and give any upcoming Spring outfit a little edge.
How to play: Go to twisted-silver.com and find any other item on their website that you think would look great when paired with one of the two bracelets up for grabs. Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question:
What other piece would you wear with either bracelet?’
Rules: One winner will be randomly selected on February 22 2011. Twisted Silver will ship the prize directly to the winner. Must be shipped to an address in the U.S. Good luck!
Congratulations Lauren and a big thank you to all of you who participated!
This week Fashiongrail features another incredibly talented artist, Anca Ariciuc, who opened her Etsy store Anca NY in 2007. “I only like to make one of a kind pieces,” said Anca, “because for me beauty is sprung from the act of creation.” Anca explains that the “Casual Friday’s” necklace was inspired by jewelry scraps that were taken apart and put together in other incarnations. Anca did have a specific muse in mind when she created the Casual Friday’s necklace: “The wearer is funky and young; funny and outgoing. She likes to mix and match, and her outfits always hold an element of surprise.” I love it!
Product Description: Casual Friday’s Necklace. Retail value $50. Two-strand asymmetrical necklace in antiqued burnished brass finish. The necklace is an eclectic mix of chains, a few charms and olivie green beads, and 19 mother of pearl coin beads. The necklace measures 20″ at the shorter strand and 23″ at the longer one. The tassel at the bottom is 4″ long (50 cm, 57 cm, and 10 cm respectively). Closes in the back with a lobster claw clasp. All metal is non allergenic (no nickel in the plating). The contest will run from Monday, June 29 to Friday July 3 winner will be selected on Saturday, July 4.
How to Play: Go to Anca NY and pick your favorite piece. Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question: “What would you wear it with?” Make sure you name the piece you picked! The most creative answer will win! Have fun and good luck!
