Nissa Through the Decades

Now that it’s the week before Halloween, it’s time to seriously start thinking about what you’re going to wear to that costume party. Here at Nissa, we’ve researched long and hard to put together perfect outfits for you… inspired by the landmark fashion trends throughout the decades.  Enjoy!

Along with a classic flapper dress, we’ve paired together our most fabulous pearl jewelry.  Add a bright red lip and a clean, liquid-eyeliner cat eye to really make this 1920s costume the talk of the town!

A 1940s/50s inspired dress added with these pieces will really make this look authentic!  A pink lip and cheek make is super feminine and super adorable.

If you want to have a far-out 1960s/70s inspired look, grab a tie-dye shirt and some bellbottom jeans to start!  Take our bohemian jewelry and add some glittery makeup, and you’ve got yourself one groovy getup.

Whether we want to or not, we all remember the 80s and 90s fashion!  At least they make great costumes, today!  A pair of denim overalls added with our pinned/chained jewelry are good ways to start off your grunge inspired look.  Finish it off with some dark lips and a smudged liner and you’ll look bad to the bone.

Hey, its Election Day!


If it’s not apparent from the plethora of political ads you have probably seen this morning (I swear I saw six alone in my thirty-minute news watching endeavor) or the abundance of “I voted” stickers acting as accessories to commuters’ outerwear today- it’s finally Election Day! The day of patriotic toast for breakfast, shoes sporting elephants and donkeys and most importantly, the day we pick our next President! 

Unbiased sites like ‘Vote Smart' allow visitors to choose the issues most important to them and ultimately understand which politician's platform most closely aligns with their attitudes. Check it out by clicking the image below- we actually learned a thing or two by perusing the various 'points'. 



Also, as always, Google is paving the path for obtaining information conveniently while displaying one of their ever-creative banners:) Click the image below to find out where you are registered to vote today! 

What party are we voting for you ask? Well, our strategic answer to that question is.. the Arm Party;) That’s right, not only are we proudly dawning our “I voted” stickers but also are subtly promoting our American pride with arms full of red, white and blue! 

Don’t think we’ve forgotten about you if an arm full of bright bracelets and bangles isn’t your thing! Our “Liberty Collection" most definitely has a patriotic piece that will perfectly align with your personal style:)

Here at the studio, we’ve tried to keep the political talk to a minimum but all are in agreement that this is a monumental day in our country’s history. So get out there and make yourself heard today. After all, every vote counts!

Goin’ for the gold!

It’s official! By now, the majority of the more than 17,000 athletes representing 205 countries have moved into the Olympic Village and are bracing themselves for the commencement of the 2012 Olympic Games in London! The fun starts today, July 27th, and is scheduled to conclude on August 12th in the capitol of Great Britain. The grand city of London has hosted the games twice before (in 1908 and 1948 for you future Jeopardy participants out there) and will become the first city to stage the Olympics three times with the completion of this year’s Summer games. 

 
Get in the Olympic spirit with Nissa Jewelry!  

While we loved watching Olympic athletes ski down picturesque snowcapped mountains two years ago, all of us over here at the studio are extremely excited to watch the participants swimming their hearts out, giving it all in volleyball and of course- who could forget- the debatably most awesome Olympic sport- “table tennis” (ping pong for all us common folk).
