Runway Fashion Vs Real World

 

By Heather O’Cain, BluKatDesign on Etsy

Runway fashion vs real world. As a jewelry designer I like to get ideas from the runway, as crazy as they are and interpret them for the real world! I love bright colors and this clown-like photo from Armani Prive Spring 2019 Couture Show was the inspiration:

Below is my version with my red and blue poppy statement necklace and a flattering form fitting blue dress to make the necklace pop! Slim blue denim earrings blend with the dress, plain but elegant shoes in nude for a classy look! Keep it simple when wearing a statement necklace! I suggest a bright red clutch to go with:

The Best Polyvore Alternative for Fashion Lovers and Bloggers, Etsy Sellers

 

The Best Polyvore Alternative for Fashion Lovers and Bloggers, Etsy Sellers

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

 

Early last year the very popular fashion Social Media site Polyvore was sold and shut down suddenly. This  left a lot of us fashion lovers, bloggers and Etsy sellers who loved this platform  without the ability to make sets by clipping favorite articles of clothing or accessories. There were some sites that claimed the would get a “clipper” soon or phone apps that kind of worked but are a pain to use. Then I stumbled across URSTYLE, so far I have found this site to work almost identical as Polyvore! I only wish we could find our followers and favorite designers now! Click on photos to take you to URSTYLE and for set details:

2018 Jewelry Trends: Asymmetrical and Chunky Chains

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

As an artist I have always loved asymmetrical jewelry and mismatched earrings. The challenge here is taking ideas from New York Fashion Week, as seen in Glowsly, and making jewelry that is wearable for everyday or comfortable enough to wear out!  For mismatched earrings, you don’t even have to buy new pieces just find earrings that have similar colors or textures. Maybe you have a pearl stud, try mixing it with a tassel dangle! If you want something new check out my latest earrings in gold, gunmetal and silver:

As a designer, I like to watch trends like you see at New York Fashion Week.  I love the challenge of trying to make something similar that would be better suited for normal life!  These lightweight aluminum silver chain tassel earrings ( below) do just that, you can wear them all day long and into the night with comfort and show stopping style! Tassels are always in style but they are super hot for 2018-19.
