Ways to rock Oak’S accessories

I thought I had it all figured out - In my head I did a quick scan of the clothes hanging in the wardrobe followed by the shoes on the shoe rack.  Dressing up for an occasion was never the issue, but complementing my appearance with  accessories was a big deal, funny right, after all I sell accessories!!! The best part about doing this is what the community shopping creates, when lost on how to mix and match I solve the riddle by checking out one of the “thank you, I look great” pictures my friends have sent over the weekend and BOOM I got the styling for the event sorted.  So this piece is to all our great customers who have great taste for Oak’S accessories and know how to rock them!!!

Check out feature on neck pieces

I Loveeeee Neck Pieces!

Hello Fierceville,

I haven't posted nada all week (not good).
Hope your week has been okay..i can't say that about mine though, but glory be to God all the same.

So i was flipping through my pictures last week and i saw quite a number where i spotted quite a few neckpieces and *drums rolling* i got inspired to do a post about how much i love neck pieces

Writing is so cool, you get inspired randomly....makes me feel creatively useful.

A lot of fashion forward girls and guys are a bit too conservative about neck pieces and the interesting thing is they are too fun not to use when pairing an outfit

For me, I go all out when it comes to neck pieces cuz they scream your outfit or give it that umph it needs.

The chunkier the better, the stranger the best : )

I apologize for the picture overload lol they are in bits and pieces

I love them so : )

Fashion quotes

Here are some fashion quotes I found, please free to add yours!!!

"Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day. They can completely change the look of an outfit, and women like the idea of having a wardrobe that's versatile. For instance, a strong piece of jewelry can make a simple outfit look elegant." - Giorgio Armani

"It's easy to wear white head to toe if you simply add a bold piece of jewelry or other accessory."
  - Christy James

"It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."
— Alexander McQueen

Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.  ~Epictetus

The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize. 
~Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias

"Jewelry takes people's mind off your wrinkles". (Sonja Henie)

Diamonds are a girl's best friend and a man's worst enemy.  ~Author Unknown

from us at Oak'S Signature we believe no outfit is complete without something sparkly! Now that's our quote!!

Looking after your costume jewelry

Costume jewelry designs have been a favorite choice for centuries for women and men of all societies. Contemporary fashion jewelry is reaching the same heights of popularity did in the early 20th Century. It is often made to suit the seasonal fashion colors, is affordable and much is unsigned.
Fashion jewelry ranges from cheap and cheerful plastic designs through to the handcrafted necklaces and earrings that are made to last. The best way to ensure your favorite costume earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, pins and brooches last is to look after them so you get to enjoy them even more.
Here are 7 ways to look after your costume jewelry:
1. Costume jewelry and water just do not mix. So avoid leaving it in moist bathrooms, in a wet pile after swimming or showering or in any pool of water.

2. Display your costume jewelry on earring holders, necklace stands, bracelets and watch displays to avoid messy tangles that can harm the jewelry. Display stands are also great for showing off your jewelry so you get to enjoy it more.

3. When traveling or carrying your jewelry around use a roll - also known as a jewelry organizer - as it is soft so it protects your treasures from nasty knocks.

4. Just like with caring for pearl jewelry, fashion jewelry does not like the acid from hairsprays and alcohol of perfumes so put yours on after you have sprayed hair spray and perfumes.

5. Many components used in costume jewelry can be sun affected such as wooden beads, bone beads and the like so keep them out of the sun.

6. Avoid letting your costume fashion jewelry coming into contact with soap, face creams, or moisturizers. If they do rinse clean and pat dry. Make sure they're fully dry before putting it away.

7. Clean your jewelry gently with cotton buds or a soft toothbrush with a little distilled water. 

Make sure it is properly dried so to look after the metal settings.

Many talented jewelry designers have created simply stunning pieces, especially with the focus in the 20th Century on colorful and sparkling affordable designs. So whatever your style make sure you get to enjoy your beloved fashion jewelry for the years to come simply by caring for them.

The Glitz from the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes saw a lot of our Hollywood favorites wearing oversized stud earrings! Glee star Lea Michelle, Angelina Jollie, Viola Davis and Stacy Keibler were a few names among the many celebrities that spotted this trend. What we love the most about this is that you can wear it on a daily basis at work or at play and unlike chandelier earrings they are not heavy, that’s a double win in our books!!! No matter how you wear your studs classic, jeweled or retro you can be sure to get a second glance!!

What are you waiting  for?  Pack up your hair (weaves in some cases *wink) and give us a call to get your ear lobes bejeweled.
