Loving Sonsi’s Fabulous Costume Jewelry

In 2011 Fashion Trends, La Purse News on August 22, 2011 at 3:16 pm

We’ve said it before and will say it again: Twitter is a great place to discover amazing people, stay tuned with the latest fashion news and fall in love with the most amazing designs! This is exactly what happened to us when we got a glimpse of @SonsiWoman amazing website. So many fashionable things there, so hard to pick a favorite category! But when we finally did, we had to share it with everyone!

Without any further ado, we are loving Sonsi’s fabulous Costume Jewelry! Such a wide range of great pieces to choose from, gorgeous designs, eye-grabbing colors and great prices. What more can a accessories-loving girl ask for!

As hard as it was to pick just a couple, we managed to narrow it down to 5 pieces that we think shouldn’t be missing from your jewelry box:

1. The cutest addition to your wardrobe: Bumblebee Crystal Accent Pin by Palm Beach Jewelry ($9.99).

So many fashionable things to to with this adorable pin! Accessorize your boyfriend blazer with it, pin it to your necklace or keep your pashmina shawl in place with this lovable bumblebee.

2. For the fashion-forward jewelry collector: a true statement piece, Egyptian Goddess Bib Necklace by Fashion Bug ($12.00).

Look and feel like a celebrity the next time you go out by accessorizing your outfit with a fabulous statement necklace like the stunning piece above.

3. A touch of vintage: Antiqued Hoop Earrings by Palm Beach Jewelry ($12.99).

Wear your hair in a classy up-do to show off a gorgeous pair of antique-looking earrings. You’ll be amazed by the amounts of compliments you’ll receive.

4. As the website describes it, a style essential: Beaded bangle bracelet collection by Lane Bryant ($19.95)

5. Adorn your hands with a sparkly bauble! We really like the Multicolor rhinestone shapes ring by Lane Bryant ($19.95).

If these pieces caught your attention, be sure to visit the full collection over at Sonsi. Tell us what you think about our costume jewelry picks and share your favorite pieces with us!

2. We have been so lucky to have met the lovely Jacin Fitzgerald via The Charity Wedding Giveaway hosted by another great lady, Alicia. Jacin was one of the winners of the giveaway and we got to send her one of our infinity scarves. Not only was she kind enough to send us pictures of  her wearing the scarf, but she also interviewed us for the Examiner!

We’ve talked about starting the business, future collections and many more interesting things. To read our interview with Jacin, entitled “Bridal Accessories: La Purse in San Francisco!” , click here.
