3 Ways to Rock It: Alex and Ani

ways to wear alex and aniI love cool, unique jewelry and am always on the hunt for the latest designers. The latest and greatest of these is Alex and Ani. Although they’ve been around since 2004, this American jewelry company led by an all-female trifecta has blown up in the past year! I found out about the line because I kept seeing all these girls with cool charm bracelets stacked up their arm. These bracelets are offered in so many different collections from zodiac signs and initials to sororities and energy symbols. Keep reading for 3 ways to wear Alex and Ani bracelets.

LBS Chic: My Name Necklace


A few months ago the folks at MyNameNecklace.com reached out to me about their website. You guys all know I’m a stickler for monogrammed and signature chains. I’ve blogged about one of them in an outfit post here.


They’re a great way to add a touch of personalization to your look and I’ve been hooked on them ever since Carrie brought them back to the forefront during Sex & The City in its heyday.


In true Carrie fashion, I ordered the Carrie Necklace in Gold-Plated Silver from My Name Necklace. It’s a classic and it looks good with just about everything. I got it in my name – Christina. I remember back in Junior High and High School, if you didn’t have a nameplate you weren’t “cool”. Please believe I had one – double-plated!


I like to think of this as an updated, more adult version of that. One that’s dainty, sophisticated and won’t go out of style. The website also offers a few different styles and fonts for you to choose from. Whether you’re more of a silver girl or you want something more understated like your initials, My Name Necklace has it all.


This piece makes a great gift all year round (Mother’s Day, Birthdays, etc) and makes an even better present for yourself. The website is currently having a 50% off After-Christmas sale and you guys can get an additional 10% off  of all styles using discount code: BROWNSUGAR.

Day 2 is all about Andrea Bocchio Jewelry. I ran into Andrea Bocchio’s booth at Afropunk this summer and was really impressed by her hand woven jewels. So I was elated when we collaborated to produce a Limited Edition version of her bestselling Kupa Bracelet:


I asked Andrea to use some of the blog’s most popular colors to create these and so she used pink and creme suede fabrics and wove them into this design especially for us!
