Trend We Love: Evil Eye.

The evil eye motif is nothing new — we’ve seen it before in ancient Eastern traditions and many a runway show since then. We think it’s safe to say this trend is not going anywhere! Many cultures believe that the eye talisman wards off injury and misfortune. Superstitious or not, we love wearing this symbol on our baubles and our clothing! Around the office we’re fans of some understated sparkle when it comes to the evil eye, like a delicate pendant, pair of studs, or cuff.

The Weekly Ten.

1. We love a good sale, especially when it’s on baubles.

2. Have you heard? Our very own Grace Atwood {of Stripes & Sequins} designed an exclusive collection for us! 

3. Drool… must be pretty nice to have a custom-designed jet

4. A gorgeous (and patriotic) look for any July 4th festivities. 

5. This week we celebrated National Pink Day with these earrings

6. Finally, adult nap time is acceptable. Happy napping!

7. This is fascinating. A journalist sent her photo to graphic designers all over the world to see how standards of beauty differ in each country. 

8. A beauty how-to on rocking Radiant Orchid for three skin tones. 

9. The Limited is launching an Olivia Pope collection this fall, so we can finally dress like our favorite gladiator. It’s handled. 

10. This crostini appetizer is super easy to make, and the flavor options are endless.

How To: Get Dressed in a Flash!

We confess: There are days we seriously can’t get out of bed. No. Matter. What. We know you’ve been there, too. As a public service, we pulled together a foolproof guide to getting out the door in five minutes’ time—without looking like you just rolled out of bed. The truth is, no matter how put-together someone’s life may appear, everyone has an inner lazy girl.

So, let’s talk wardrobe. Simple, classic and comfortable are your best friends. In the summer, all you need is this winning formula: a flowy shift, slip or shirt dress + stylish slip-ons + a statement necklace. The jewelry acts as the conversation piece, while the dress is easy to pull on and slip-ons are functional enough for speed walking. These investment pieces will certainly be reused year after year.

As for makeup? Carry a good lip stain or crayon, dark mascara and some bronzer everywhere so you can apply on the go. You’ll look like you woke up at 6 AM and styled an amazing outfit. Maybe we’ll be lazy girls and sleep in every day!

Pets of BB: Meet Lyra!

The pets of BaubleBar are a charming bunch! Today, we are excited to introduce you to our VP of Sourcing & Production’s dog, Lyra.

"We fell in love with Lyra four and a half years ago when we found her at Bideawee, an animal shelter located in NYC," says Liz. "She was originally rescued from the Bahamas, where she roamed the beaches as a wild dog, or ‘potcake’ as the locals call them. After arriving at Bideawee, one of her eyes was removed due to a bad infection, but that didn’t slow her down at all. She is a very sweet, shy girl who loves to run around in Connecticut on the weekends and sleep on her couch all day in NYC. She can be slow to warm up to new people and animals, but once she does, she’s a loyal buddy for life."

 

Style We Love: Tropical Prints.

imageWe just can’t get enough of the vacation-inspired island prints that are literally everywhere this season, and we’re obsessed with all the ways our Fashion Team has been styling them. However, in real, non-editorial life, we’re afraid of looking like a suburban dad in a Hawaiian shirt. We asked our Fashion Team, who says the key lies in modern silhouettes, tailored pieces and a mature color palette. Here are some of the tropical pieces we’re lusting after this season:

  1. This Tropical V Bralette would look great under a semi-sheer blouse.

  2. On beach days we’ll be reaching a Tropical Hair Tie to take our top knot up a notch.

  3. Slip on island attitude with the Slipper Shoe, a pair of jeans and a loose-fitted tee.

  4. The Sour Lime Sweater Jersey is comfy, cute and super stylish on cool nights.

  5. For a night out, we want to wear this slinky Tropical ’90s Mini Dress. Throw a loose tee over it and knot it on the side, and it doubles as a cute skirt.

  6. A printed Crossbody Bag is the perfect way to make a monochromatic outfit pop.

  7. Pleat Top offers a dose of comfy coral, and looks great with distressed denim.

  8. The Leaf Print Pencil Skirt‘s vibrant green hues create a more modern island look.

  9. Rock the trend 24/7 by outfitting your iPhone with a Mint Leather Phone Case.

  10. The Mono Tropical Raglan Tee is perfect for those of us who live in black, and love a shirt that can be styled a million ways.
