Autumn Winds

Hope everyone’s staying warm and cozy as Fall is in our midst and Winter is right around the corner! I don’t know about you, but I love the warm looking, bold jewel tones of Fall. Here’s a fun and cozy layered look featuring SSD jewelry for those brisk cool mornings.

It’s Game Day Ya’ll!

Disclaimer: I did not go to school in the south nor did I go to OU (Illini for life, if you’re wondering). However, my boyfriend went to OU and is a die hard Sooner fan. Thus, every year for the past 4 years, we travel down to Dallas for the Red River Rivalry game between the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas.

The first time I went to Dallas, it was a huge a culture shock to see southern belles decked out from head to toe in their school colors. I’m talking homemade spirit dresses, huge hair, bold lipstick, and of course, no outfit in the south is complete without cowboy boots.  If you’re like me, and fairly new to the whole decked out game day look, it can be really easy to be fashionable while supporting your favorite team.

Victoria’s Secret has their Collegiate Collection (and NFL & MLB lines) which make dressing cute for the game super simple.  If you have some time and you’re feeling crafty, I love this Game Day Dress tutorial made out of regular old tshirts. Jewelry and accessories are also a great way to add some color and sparkle to your look. I’m partial to our bow bracelets and bows in general. Since SSD jewelry is hand made, we can make many of our designs in an endless array of colors. If you can’t find your team’s colors email us at to order your spirit jewelry!

Styling the Linden Neckalce – Black & White

As we continue to work on the new website, we wanted to add a little style inspiration back into the SSD blog. We’ll be posting how we would style some of our favorite SSD pieces with our favorite looks and trends!

With Fall pretty much here even though it is currently 85 degrees in Chicago and NYFW upon us, we bet that you will be seeing lots of black and white ensembles this season. Black and white is the ultimate classic color palette. It’s chic, simple, and has endless options. Our new Linden Statement Necklace is the perfect compliment to any black and white ensemble, The silver and gold accents on the Linden Necklace make mixing metals super easy. We’re all about a flowy blouse balanced with these amazing structured metallic J. Crew Sandals.  It’s probably even your last chance to show off that stellar pedicure before it gets too cold for open toed shoes. How would you style the Linden Necklace?
