Anjolee and Snow.

See all that pretty but cold, white fluffy coat on the ground? It is the snow we got here a few days ago and of course I took some OOTD photos that day. It was also the first time I got to wear my new Anjolee Bracelet to work. A couple of months ago, Anjolee which is the biggest fine jewelry online retailer out there, contacted me. They wanted me to try out a beautiful piece from their collection. Anyone that knows me well, knows I love jewelry (real or fake) so of course I could not say No. Especially since Anjolee knows the Art of Jewelry. In their website, I had the option to select from hundreds of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. They literally had hundreds in each category. Since I own a ton of earrings and necklaces, I narrowed it down to either a bracelet or a ring. Ultimately I chose this bracelet because I do not own many tennis bracelets or classy, dainty fine jewelry bracelets. I customized my bracelet to my liking: white gold and garnet stones which are in this vivid shade of red wine. The bracelet was perfectly dainty and beautiful. I opted for the normal length of the bracelet though I could have customized it to be smaller or larger. I have fairly thin wrists but the regular length of the bracelet worked out fine for my wrist. 

My bracelet was carefully shipped via UPS with a tracking number and for security and safety purposes it was a signature-required package. I happened to be home when it arrived so I signed for it myself and couldn't be more excited to see it. Inside the UPS box, there was a large UPS bubble-wrap envelope with the white cartoon box inside. I opened the box and I saw the most gorgeous glossy red cherry wood box (where my beautiful bracelet was). The wood box had the Anjolee logo on the inside and the bracelet was placed inside the cushion. My bracelet was customized just how I ordered it. The clasp of it was both easy to do/undo and very strong and steady so that your pretty bracelet doesn't come off easily and you end up losing it. You have the option to chose your stone (for example diamond, ruby, pink topaz, emerald, etc.), your metal (white gold, yellow gold, platinum or silver), your stone shape (oval, round, baguette, pear, etc.)  and of course you choose the style of the bracelet. Last but not least, you can customize the length like I mentioned above. My Bracelet would have looked just as pretty with blue precious stones as shown on the website.

You will notice from their website that each category is divided into sub-categories. For example in the bracelet category you can choose: gemstone bracelets, vintage bracelets, red carpet bracelets, men's bracelets, bangles, designer bracelets etc. Besides the bracelet I chose which I am wearing today, I also love this one or this oneWith Valentine's day coming up and of course February and Spring are great months for proposals and engagements too, Anjolee Jewelry is the perfect website to order a special sparkly something for your special loved one (woman or man), whether it is a pair of studs, diamond drop earrings, a beautiful bracelet or you are ready to pop the question with that one very beautiful and unique ring which you can design yourself.

I wore this Outfit to work a few days ago, when we got all the snow. There are two versions of it as you can see. For indoors, when I was in the office it was the low-heel black leather booties and no big cozy infinity scarf and of course no gloves. For my drive and walk from the parking lot to the building I work at, I bundled up with Black OTK Boots (paired with long socks over my tights, too), finger-less mitten gloves, a warm and big infinity scarf (which was also the big pop of color in this neutral outfit of Black, Gray, Brown and a little White), a Gray Panama Floppy Hat and of course a Warm Faux Fur Coat. I wore my Cowl-Neck Striped Sweater Dress with Footless Black Tights. I accessorized with a very Long Beaded Gold Necklace (around my neck thrice) and Coral Studs on my ears (brand-new and they matched the scarf perfectly). On my right wrist where I wore my Anjolee Tennis Bracelet I paired it with a new asymmetric-shaped Cocktail Ring with a variety of round white+silver stones. What do you think of this outfit? A little bold and full of Winter Accessories right? But if it is super cold and snowy out, no reason not to look stylish still.
