How Tuesday: Circle Skirts & How To Wear Them

image

We put a few looks together for you to help you start off on the right foot for these brisk, upcoming months.  With circle skirts coming back at full force, these flattering little numbers will have you spinning for joy (really, it’s actually a lot of fun).  Take a look!

         image

This first look is inspired by the oversized grungy look (check out the below picture from fashion week!) with a little hint of glam.  These circle skirts can both be paired with the Cecilia Tweed Necklace and Vida Cuff from Nissa Jewelry.  Add a pair of heels with a business tote to say, “Yeah I keep it casual, and I look good doing it!”

Next we have a more edgy look that takes on another big trend: black and white.  We paired both looks with an edgy pair of flats, checkered pocketbook, and some Nissa Jewelry to add some flair.  With a Georgina Tweed Cuff and a pair of the Pinned Earrings, you’ll be ready to rock out anywhere you go.

We hope this fashion how-to showed you how to wear any sort of circle skirt—you can own the look with a casual/feminine combo look or make take a basic long-sleeved tee and dress it up punk-girl chic.  Happy styling!

How Tuesday: DIY Spa Day

With fall arriving, we welcome back sweater weather and riding boots happily, but we forget how the constant weather changes affect our hair and skin. We found two DIY thrifty homemade beauty recipes for you to try. They will moisturize dry hair and cracked lips. You can easily find each of these ingredients in your own kitchen or your closest grocery store. They are quick and easy to create. These remedies are our natural and will probably make you feel fresh right away!  So go ahead, give yourself the spa therapy that you deserve:

Don’t let the cold dry your hair out! Use this mix your moisturize and keep your strands healthy. Mash the avocados and bananas together until it is smooth. Mix in the beaten egg and pour two tablespoons of olive oil. Blend until all the ingredients are even. Spread the mask onto your hair and allow it to soak for 15-30 minutes. Rinse the mix with cold water. Wash your hair with your shampoo.

Say goodbye to chapped lips because your lips will finally be smooth with this exfoliator! Blend all of the ingredients together. Rub the mix onto your lips gently. Rinse off your lips with water.

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!

Pictured: Gilda Uptown Earring/Clary Bracelet/Clary Necklace

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!

imagePictured: Stingray Drop Necklace/Stanton Cuff/Lucy Earring

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.

image

Pictured: Presley Necklace/Presley Tassel Earring/Vida Long Necklace/Wavy Bangles

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.

image

Pictured: Pinned Earring/Sloane Solid Toned Necklace/Sloane Solid Tone Bracelet/Pinned Bracelet/Aztec Cuff

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.

Working Women

It’s true!  Studies have shown that there are, in fact, not enough hours in the day!  That doesn’t mean, however, you have to stress about looking fabulous all day, every day.  We at Nissa are giving some tips to all you hard working ladies out there who love to accessorize, but don’t know how to take your office look to your nighttime look.  Here are three ideas we came up with to help you go-getters out.

image

This first look is inspired for those who are going out for dinner, a movie, or maybe even both!  The Roxy necklace is a great piece to add some flare to your simple clothes, and the Star Stud earrings will leave those at the office (or maybe your hot date after work) starstruck.

image

Fall is coming, and here we take working girl from the office to the study guru in the classroom.  We’ve paired the Wave Triple Cuff with our Raya Pendant Necklace in blue, cognac, and white to add some simple elegance to your autumn collection.  These pieces are great because they go with just about anything!

image

Last, but certainly not least, we have a look that’ll make you truly stand out… in the office or on the town.  Cobalt and black look great with these gold pieces—the Mesh Link Collar Necklace and the Cobblestone Triple Earring (as seen on Katherine Heigl!). Every girl likes to dress up now and then, and with Nissa Jewelry you can do just that!

Good luck ladies! And don’t forget to treat yourself :)
