A Pretty Pearl Sweater DIY... 4 Dec 2017

A Pretty Pear Sweater DIY / Oh Joy!

While we're posting gift guides a plenty right now, I also wanted to share things that you could make for a loved one this holiday season. This DIY could take a bit longer than most of our usual projects depending on how detailed you want to get. However the result is seriously so beautiful and makes an inexpensive sweater look far fancier...like a beautiful vintage find or much pricier version. For someone who would love a completely one-of-a-kind piece to wear, you'll want to make this stat! Here's how...

ways to give back on giving tuesday and any day... 28 Nov 2017

Ways to Give Back / Oh Joy!

As we head into the holidays and the season of giving gifts to our loved ones, I always think about how lucky I am to be able to buy those gifts for people I love. I also think about those who aren't getting special presents or aren't in the position to be able to give the same joy to their kids due to their particular circumstances in life.

Today is Giving Tuesday which supports and encourages giving back to your community and to others in any way you can. I take my team on a lot of fun and visually-inspiring field trips around Los Angeles, but recently we spent some time—not taking photos at an Instagrammable museum—but volunteering. We went to a local organization, Baby2Baby, that provides essentials for children and families in need. As we were packing bags of donated items for specific kids and seeing the basic items (clothes, shoes, blankets, toys, books) that they needed and just don't have, it can break your heart and also make you appreciate every day that much more.

If you are looking for ways to help give back in some way, here are a few...

currently obsessed with: pink and mustard... 17 Nov 2017

Oh Joy outfit

Whenever fall comes around, I think about how my usual love of bright colors often feels a bit intense during the fall. I have been super obsessed with mustard lately (like this coat) and now this comfy, yet chic, shirt and pants. As a way to bring my love of color into this rich fall tone, I've added big pops of pink. Here are two versions of pink and mustard with a pale pink jacket and a bright magenta coat...

Oh Joy outfit

When you have a cropped pant, offset that with a top, jacket, or coat that goes to the normal length and full-sleeve, so the cropping is only focused on one piece not multiple. Also, by adding a neutral shoe, the other saturated colors have a chance to shine!

A Fun Fall Outfit / Oh Joy!

Even though we are having an obscenely hot week here in Los Angeles, I am seriously ready for fall with thicker and softer fabrics that come with the season. Velvet....yes! Faux fur...please! This is my new favorite outfit for a Los Angeles fall that combines higher end and lower end pieces and a bunch of different beautiful textures...

my everyday jewelry... 23 Oct 2017

my everyday jewelry

When it comes to jewelry, I love statement pieces now and then, but I really gravitate towards light and lovely pieces that I can wear and keep on every day. When I do Instagram Stories, you'll often spot my necklace or rings, and so I wanted to share a round-up of some of my favorites with you...

01. If you're looking for a classic piece made modern, this Leah Alexandra Star Moon Necklace makes for a beautiful update to a traditional locket. Add a couple photos inside of loved ones or your favorite quote.

02. I love this Starling Colette Small Pavé Necklace for laying with others. It adds a bit of color from the stones and goes with anything.

03. This Clare V x Maya Brenner AMOUR Necklace offers a lovely sentiment and is beautiful worn alone or layered with other pieces.

04. For a pair of everyday earrings that aren't simply studs, I love these Ariel Gordon Ruby Pave Huggies. They come in a few different colors and can be kept on all the time.

05. This Ariel Gordon Sweetheart Bracelet is a tad thicker then some of the other pieces here but makes a nice, everyday piece with simple heart shapes added to the pretty chain.

06. I love how this Maya Brenner Double Cut Bracelet goes with anything and is perfect for layering with other bracelets, thick or thin.

07. For a special piece with a bit of sparkle, this Ariel Gordon Diamond Dash Bracelet mixes everyday with a few tiny diamonds to make it a bit fancier than just a metal piece.

08. If you're looking to celebrate your family in a special way, this Ariel Gordon Horizon Birthstone Ring allows you to add five different birth stones. This makes for a great gift to give to someone or to hint that you want for yourself ;)

09. This Leah Alexandra Moonstone Antiquity Ring looks like a vintage ring passed down from generations. This piece is the boldest of the items shown here, but so, so light and pretty that it really can be worn every day.

10. I love the color of emerald, so this Leah Alexandra Green Gem Ring adds a nice pop of color if you want something that isn't too bold but also isn't too neutral.

11. You'll always find me wearing this Maya Brenner Initial Necklace with my kids' first initials on them. This is the piece I get asked about all the time!

P.S. For a limited time, Leah Alexandra is offering 20% off to Oh Joy readers with code: OHJOY20 at checkout.
