Extra big, that is. This season it’s all about the oversized look… but that doesn’t mean it can’t be flattering AND stylish! Today we wanted to show you some very basic ideas for that new fall closet of yours, and of course we added out own personal touch with some Nissa Jewelry, all available at nissajewelry.com.
With just 10 days until the new year, we thought it would be appropriate to give our favorite 2012 Nissa pieces the spotlight. It proved a difficult task to come up with just twelve trinkets but after much deliberation we present to you our most beloved Nissa baubles of this year…
From left to right; top to bottom:

Talasi Jeweled Ring - Kiki Necklace - Jovina Necklace - Grace Earring
Ingrid Earring - Empire Ring - Clara Bracelet - Sumi Collar Necklace
Do you ever have those days where you walk into your closest- with the intention of putting together an awesome ensemble- yet find yourself simply staring at your sweaters and shirts? If you’re anything like us, the infamous ‘I have nothing to wear’ statement emerges and instead of smiling at your plethora of potential outfits you struggle to put together even one stylish solution. Well, we are here to prove that transitioning your Summer-staples into the new (and slightly colder) season isn’t as arduous as it sometimes appears to be.
Our trick? Investing in a few versatile, ‘never-go-out-of-style’ pieces. By keeping your eyes peeled for classic items with a unique twistyou can slowly build a broad array of equally wearable and interesting options. Take the go-to skinny jean for example. By buying a colored pair- rather than the normal denim blue- you exponentially expand your outfit choices and your collection of compliments;) Emma from our Marketing team swears by her forest green jeans- a color that is just as fun in the Summer as it is in the Fall…
While it’s ever-important to perpetually grow your apparel inventory, the outfits above prove that accessories can also add an interesting appeal to an everyday ensemble! Above, Emma sports her favorite Nissa bauble, the Franklin Cuff, with each of her four looks. Just as the green skinny jeans fit into each style, the vintage-inspired bracelet from our Liberty Collection will forever be in fashion.
By acquiring classic pieces that feature unique points of differentiation- your daily ‘dressing decision’ will easily become one of your favorite parts of the day, behind dessert of course;) Still find yourself puzzled regarding how to transform your Summer staple into a Fall fashion? Head over to our Facebook page and post a picture of your ‘problem’ piece- we’ll do our best to relieve your headache:)
While we have been in the business of creating hand-crafted and contemporary jewelry for almost five years now, our heart still finds itself beating a little faster each time we spot one of our vintage-inspired gems in a magazine spread. Our eyes begin to smile as we reach for our iPhones to snap pictures of the beautifully adorned models. We are uncertain if the overwhelming feeling of pride- knowing that all of our ‘sweat and tears’ (for lack of a better fitting or more truthful phrase) have paved the way for us to pursue our passion in the fashion industry- will ever dissipate- yet one thing is for sure, our mother probably now has more pictures of our jewelry then of us as babies:)
I think the underlying understanding of knowing you have to work for what you want is what keeps the Nissa team always going back to peruse portions of Bisous during our lunch breaks. Bisous is a digital fashion magazine that is published online quarterly, ”offering new and exciting trends for the cool kids in all of us”. It was created out of the realization that there was a medium missing in the summarizing of new styles and the season’s most superb fashion offerings. So, instead of letting the great idea of an inventive new platform simply simmer, the creative geniuses behind Bisous made the appropriate moves to allow their dream to become reality- just like Nissa did five years ago.
We are truly honored to have a collection of our post popular pieces featured in the magazine’s Fall edition and could not be more pleased with the styling of our jewelry. But seriously.. it’s a great moment when the entire studio agrees that each picture in a spread spotlights our products perfectly. Bisous took our our baubles to a new level of lovely with their boho-inspired editorial and in all honestly, the term ‘happiness’ doesn’t even begin to describe half of what we feel towards the exceptional photos. We hope that images below ignite a similar sense of exhilaration in you- or if nothing else- give you some fabulous fall ensemble ideas!
If you ever find yourself begging for brief moment of ‘peace’ from the hectic work week, we encourage you to browse Bisous’ blog! It’s bookmarked status on our toolbar sheds light into our love of the creative insight it provides and we promise it will bring an equal amount of ‘brilliance’ to your day:)
Is it just us or is there something particularly calming about the pastel color palette? We love mixing and matching the pale hues to turn an average outfit into an eye-pleasing ensemble. Take a moment out of the stresses of your day to scroll through our 'Pretty in Pastels' lookbook- we promise it will leave you smiling:)

Accessories Magazine has long been one of our go to publications for the latest and greatest additions to our ensembles and we were all smiles when we came across our Neha Triple Cuff in their cleverly named “Midas Touch” feature. Allow us to enlighten you to all things glimmery and gold in the August edition of the magazine…
By now, you hopefully know that our newly remodeled website is home to many new additions. Not only does it feature our new Fall collection but also our colorful lookbooks have gone live! We had so much fun shooting some of our favorite summer pieces in unique locations around the city and we hope that the shots inspire you to stack up your arm parties and adorn yourself in our bold baubles:) There are currently four lookbooks for your browsing pleasure but stay tuned because each week we’ll be adding a new album!

We’ve spotted another one of our favorite summer cuffs in print! If you haven’t snuck a peak at the Spring 2012 edition of Audrey Magazine now is the time:) The New Girl’s Hannah Simone effortlessly adds some eclectic flare to her ensemble with our Aragon Cuff. We’re not going to lie after reading the feature, she’s got us girl-crushin’ a little…
'Tis the season of swimwear and fun in the sun so of course we're loving the summer styles featured in the newest edition of Genlux Magazine!

Cheers to the start of what will most definitely be a wonderful week!
Just when you thought that the bizzare holidays that we uncover (hope everyone enjoyed ‘Paper Bag’ Day yesterday!) couldn’t get any stranger the clock strikes midnight and rings in “Embrace Your Geekness” Day! It is indeed Friday the 13th but over here at the studio we have chosen not to give into superstitions (even though we’ve knocked on wood at least 5 times already…) and instead are letting the ‘geek chic’ in us rule the day!
Not going to lie, we haven’t quite broken out the pocket protectors nor wrapped tape around our the middle of our eye glasses but we’ve have gotten a kick out of paroozing old photos of our team back in the ‘awkward’ days. Everyone has those pictures that you would rather close your hand in a door then let anyone in the world see- the ones that people who don’t even know you laugh at simply because they can’t fathom a more noticeably uncomfortable-with-themselves human being?! Well, it’s your lucky day because we have compiled some of those blackmail-esk kodak moments of our staff for you on this lovely Friday because we’re choosing to ‘embrace our geekness’ this holiday rather than deny it:) Prepare yourselves…
Firstly, feast your eyes on Emma from our Marketing team back in her pin-wearing, chubbier days…
Next, Allison, our resident Photoshop extraordinaire and one of the only people who can dress up as a nerd and still look stunning..
Up next is the lovely Ellina, from our Operations department, loving in on her plastic ice cream cone, we don’t ask questions.. haha
Alas, not one but two old-school pictures of Nissa herself! Plese note the ‘Dorothy Hamilll’ haircut (she would like to personally thank her mother for that one)..
yup… that happened
"big hair, don’t care"
Not ready to fully fly your ‘freak flag’? Do not fear! We have you covered! We compiled some of our favorite pieces into a ‘geek chic’ board so you can look nifty even on your nerdiest days!
See the ‘dweeby diva’ inspired ensemble we put together on Polyvore with a few of the pieces above:)
