Cinquante A Touch of Quirkiness

Cinquante Jewelry

Statement pieces are an integral part of making an outfit come alive. Especially for the days that could use an extra spark. I have those days... almost everyday. Trust me, throwing on cute accessories can bring a plain outfit, into the world of runway. At least, that's how I feel. Lately, I've been a fan of more dainty jewelry - subtle charms, studs and rings.

Cinquante The Label is a handcrafted jewellery brand made in Adalaide, Australia. Creating affordable, elegant pieces with fine silk thread, sterling silver and brass. They gifted Cute LA with their brass palm tree necklace, sterling silver diamond necklace, and popular heart ring. Each symbolizing a unique aspect of Cute LA - Palm tree for Los Angeles, Diamond for my name and Heart (Love) for Live.Art.Love.

What I love about Cinquante is the ability to mix and match fun limited edition charms you won't find anywhere else. Hello! They have a freaking Pacman Necklace! Their necklaces are lightweight, easy to adjust and great for stack. The ability to layer, at different lengths, makes it exciting to wear charms that resonate with your personality. Check out the photos below for a closer look at this elegant and quirky label. Showing that, yes, you can be both!

Minty Meets Munt Playful and Edgy

Minty Meets Munt Lolita Dress

If you're like me, you're the type of person that doesn't invest in enough dressy "going out" clothes. The ones that turn heads when you walk into the party, event or first date. The main reason is because those head turning dresses usually break the bank. I don't want to drop dollar (or many) on a dress that will be worn once and never again. Introducing, Australian company Minty Meets Munt.

Minty Meets Munt Lolita Dress and Angela Roi Bag

Minty Meets Munt has a mission to make you look like a runway model, without making you go into debt doing so. Creating dresses in bold colors and catwalk ready cuts. You'll find dresses, skirts, blouses and jumpsuits designed with straight edges, asymetrical cuts and flattering patterns. Minty Meets Munt knows how to keep it sexy and playful with just the right amount of edge. These are the dresses you can wear with a bold statement necklace and leather jacket or feminine with stillettos and dainty jewelry. With dresses like these you'll look for fancy parties to attend.

For this video collaboration, Cute LA was gifted the Lolita Dress. The dress was styled with my Angela & Roi Sunday Tote which was a birthday gift.  

The Minty Meets Munt x Cute LA video was made interactive with WIREWAX - a  platform that allows you to make videos engaging and fun. Video song is "Earned it" by The Weeknd.

KAT&GAB Vintage Loves

Cute LA and KAT&GAB Collaboration

Kathleen De Almeida and Gabby Blandino-Vasquez are two ladies on a mission to create their own opportunities. Best friends since childhood, they recently founded the online boutique, KAT&GAB. Their unique store carries a little bit of everything: vintage finds, handmade clothing, home decor, upcycled goodies and refurbished furniture. I love what they did to the jewelry armoire with chalk paint (below).The inspiration behind KAT&GAB is fueled by Kathleen and Gabby's desire to save money for college.

 Always one to root for entrepreneurs and small businesses, I was honored when they asked to collaborate on an outfit post. They sent me a lovely vintage wool skirt, silk blouse and handmade patterned denim shorts. What's unique about KAT&GAB is the joy and care given to bring these vintage finds new life. There is a personal touch put in every item they sell. They'll even create custom designs. Given the passion of these budding entrepreneurs, the possibilities are endless with what they can create.

How To Measure Eyeglasses

How To Measure Eyeglasses Infographic

I've been wearing prescription eyeglasses since the third grade. Which I don't care what anyone says, I blame my need to sit three inches from the television. There's nothing like literally trying to be in the action of Saturday morning cartoons.

Anyway, recently my prescription changed, I hate when that happens. The only silver lining is the chance to buy cute new frames. Proud to say, I never get the overpriced ones from the Doctor's office. I like my eyeglasses to cost less than my mortgage, thank you! I'm a fan of Zenni Optical's affordable glasses and bought the frames pictured.

I'm happy about my choices. Especially since, I've had my share of failed glasses. It took me years to figure out what works best for my face. If you need help figuring out which frames compliment you. The infographic below is an easy-to-read guide for finding your frame measurements
