You can never have too many gorgeous vintage baubles! Luckily with  costume jewels you can afford to spoil your loves. And whether you S.O. needs a hint, or your looking for a gift for you mom,  bestie, or treating yourself for Valentine’s Day, scroll down for to see my and Lynn’s of All Gussied Up ultimate picks and get inspired.

XO Sasha

ELEGANT BLACK ENAMEL AND FAUX PEARL NECKLACE 1980s

 

Vintage enamel bypass necklace
This is the “IT’ length of the season! Wear this sleek elegant choker with a plunging neckline, or layer with a shorter rhinestone or pearl necklace.

RHINESTONE PAVÉ PANTHER EARRINGS 1980s

Vintage rhinestone panther earrings
They are tiny and they are fierce. I’m head over heels over the marquise-cut sapphire rhinestones! Show off these studs with a messy, sexy chignon.

LINKED RING BRACELET 1960s

Vintage link bracelet

This playful piece of overlapping rings packs a style punch. Wear this versatile bracelet with a mini color blocked shift, or a boho dress.

 

KENNETH LANE CAMELLIA COCKTAIL RING

Vintage Kenneth Lane Camellia Cocktail ring

It’s gigantic, it’s fabulous, it’s a conversation piece. Designed by Kenneth J.Lane, whose jewelry is still worn by countless celebrities ( in the 60s his clientele included Jackie O, Diana Vreeland, Audrey Hepburn, to mention a few.) Wear with anything and your outfit will be made.

Lynn’s picks:

Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner for two or a night out with the girls, deciding what to wear on Valentine’s Day can be tricky. Thank goodness for beautiful baubles to help take the guesswork out of outfit planning. I love to plan my outfits around my accessories, I find it to be easier in many cases. Here are some jewelry pieces that have inspired some outfit ideas for the day of love:

CINER GOLD-TONE AND RHINESTONE CHEVRON LINK NECKLACE 1980s

Vintage Ciner necklace

The instant I saw this sexy piece, I had a vision: a burgundy, fitted, decollete baring dress and gold heels paired with the Ciner necklace. Choker style necklaces are hot right now, but they are also timeless. I would wear this ensemble out on a romantic evening date.

KENNETH LANE “DIANA VREELAND” CUFF 1990s
Vintage Kenneth Lane "Diana Vreeland" cuffThe jewels in varying hues on this cuff make it so wearable! In my mind, more is more (in a good way), so I’d pair this bold cuff with a pair of faux leather pants, pointy-toe heels, and a sexy top for a night of dancing. You can’t go wrong with a bold outfit, especially on February 14th!

BLACK AND WHITE OP ART EARRINGS 1960s

Vintage Op Art earrings

You can’t go wrong with a pair of black and white earrings because they will go with any color(s). For Valentine’s Day, I’d go with a red sheath dress paired with these gorgeous 1960′s earrings.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: OVER-THE-TOP BAUBLES

The holidays are a time to spoil your loved ones, and to splurge on that special something you’ve been eyeing all year! What’s better then an over-the-top bauble or two to impress with? I may be biased, but I think I just may be on to something!

Whether you’re a minimalist who goes for streamlined and sleek lines, prefer  glam jewel tone encrusted bijoux, or find pieces with an heirloom vibe irresistible, There’s costume jewelry for every fashion type and mood! See my picks below and read on for what my most fashion savvy bloggerinas Priya of Pri Fixe and Lynn of All Gussied Up  chose their fave pieces. Read on for their picks below and make sure to visit their blogs for more fashion tips!

XO Sasha

SILVER-TONE WIDE BRAIDED WIDE COLLAR NECKLACE 1960s, $255

Silver-Tone Braided NecklaceThis plaited herringbone chain necklace from Italy is the epitome of bohemian chic. Wear with fringed kaftan for an effortless mood.

CAMEO GLAM DROP EARRINGS 1940s, $165

Glass Cameo EarringsBlack glass cameos and rhinestones drop earrings set the mood for a romantic holiday soirée. Sweep your hair up, and wear with a high neck Victorian-inspired lace mini dress.

TEARDROP SPRAY CHOKER NECKLACE 1950s, $225

Spray Choker Necklace

An artisanal design that will speak to the girl with an appreciation for hand-crafted design. Wear with a plunging neckline jumpsuit for a sleek and daring night-out ensemble.

Priya’s Picks:

When the holiday season approaches each year, I get most excited about how to dress and doll up for the season (that and presents, of course!). The holidays are a perfect time to shine, sparkle and dazzle for the office holiday party, girls night out or date night. It’s the one time of year, you can have that much more reason to shine — so I always look forward to accentuating my holiday looks with a little extra icing on the cake.
This year, I am all about the bold black and red (keeping it seasonal and festive of course), and pairing it beautifully with the right pieces. There is a certain elegance with keeping the color bold and the jewelry even bolder.

FAUX PEARL AND RHINESTONE HIGH COLLAR NECKLACE 1980s, $285

Faux Peal and Rhiinestone Necklace

What better way to make heads turn than this dramatic, high neck collar necklace. Try pairing this with an off-the-shoulder black, slouchy sweater for an instant, elegant look. Simple yet promisingly stunning with total ease. The pearls and rhinestones will offset a solid color perfectly, without trying too hard.

STATEMENT ROPE LINK BRACELET 1980s, $165

Rope Link Bracelet

A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous. And she can do it in this striking, statement rope link bracelet paired with a cocktail dress. Add the spice your outfit needs when heading to your holiday cocktail party. This piece is feminine and flirty making you festive through the new year!

GOLD-TONE STAR DROP EARRINGS 1980s, $115

Star Drop Earrings

Gold-Tone Star Star Drop Earrings 1980s

Shine like the star you are in these gold-tone star drop earrings. A beautiful addition to complete a festive look will make just about anyone swoon. Pair these with a jumpsuit or long dress and be the dazzling star of the night. You may even give the Christmas tree some competition.

Lynn’s Picks:

There’s nothing quite like the gift of vintage jewelry – these baubles are unique and timeless. Jewelry is almost certainly always at the top of every woman’s “wish list” when it comes to the holidays, I know it is year after year for me! This year, I’m all about bold pieces that make a statement on their own.

SLEEK LEOPARd BYPASS BRACELET 1960s, $225

 

Leopard Bypass Bracelet

What says luxury more than emeralds, elegant leopards, and a cuff bracelet all rolled into one? Absolutely nothing. I would wear this bracelet to add a big dose of glam to any outfit, casual or fancy.

FAUX PEARL FLAPPER NECKLACE 1960s, $285

IMG_7127 copy

Pearls have an effortless elegance, and instantly glam up any look. I love the delicate strands that feature the {faux} pearls on this necklace as well as the intricate beading. I would wear this vintage confection with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a tee, and a blazer for a casual-glam look.

RHINESTONE FLOWER MOTIF RING 1950s, $145

Rhinestone Flower Ring

I love the intricate details on this ring. I’d add it as a regal touch to a cocktail look.

INTERVIEW WITH STYLE MAVEN SASHA MAKSUTENKO

Originally published on All Gussied Up.

Sasha Maksutenko and I met at a mutual friend’s housewarming party, and we instantly clicked over our mutual love of fashion and experience with blogging. Every woman deserves to feel empowered with their own personal style, and Sasha is an expert at making women feel their best with her personalized styling services and vintage jewelry collection. The Sasha Maks Vintage Collection  encompasses the glamour, fantasy and originality of costume jewels of the twentieth century with a focus on Pop and Mod baubles of the 60s and 70s. I am so excited to be interviewing Sasha today on how she started her jewelry business to which celeb’s closet she wouldn’t mind raiding!

IMG_1853
Tell me about yourself and your career so far, how did you become a fashion stylist and start your vintage jewelry company?

SM: I’ve been collecting vintage costume jewelry for at least 10 years. I started off as a mid-century design dealer, and began paying attention to jewelry while on the hunt for  vintage treasures. Eventually, I switched to jewelry exclusively and first started selling at trunk shows and then online. I launched my e-boutique Sasha Maks Vintage in 2009 and started my personal style blog in 2013. Styled by Sasha Maks came about later that year and was an outgrowth of my jewelry business. I began styling local designer’s fashion shows and personal styling followed that.

What has been the most rewarding experience thus far in your career?

SM: In terms of jewelry it’s finding amazing creations by designers I admire like Dior, Lanvin, and Paco Rabanne. As far as personal styling it’s the look on my client’s face when they discover how good they can look, the confidence it engenders, and just the pure joy they experience from fashion.
And overall the opportunity to meet other creatives and entrepreneurs and work on fun collabs.

IMG_1879

How do you choose what looks work for each individual styling client?

SM: There’s a very thorough questionnaire that my clients fill out followed by a phone consult and often after that, a closet audit. This gives me a deep understanding of what their needs are, the challenges they have with style and fashion, and what they want to accomplish. By choosing pieces that flatter a particular body type and being a thorough editor of what stays in the closet and what needs to be purchased, my clients gain invaluable knowledge they can apply in the future.

What is your favorite Fall 2015 fashion trend?

SM: I like the fact that there are so many diverse trends now, nothing is really dominating. Pick and choose from the decade that appeal to you, the 70s, 80s, and 90s all had a big presence on the catwalk. Conjure up your own idea of dressing.  What speaks to my sensibility is the woman on Gucci’s Fall ‘15 runway by Alessandro Michelle, in first collection for the house, the looks are eclectic, gender-neutral, very vintagy. Which is catnip for me. Since I wear a lot of vintage clothes and like to mix things up. The collection has no overt sexuality, just a very modern approach to style. And the Vetements Fall ‘15 collection is all about reinterpreted basics in skewed proportions and oversized outerwear, tuned into what’s happening on the streets of Paris now.

If you could choose a celebrity closet to shop in, who’s would it be and why?

SM: Ha! I would love that! It would be quite a few.  Here are some who come to mind right now, all women who have an original sense of style.
Caroline de Maigret, French model and music producer – love all the masculine elements in her wardrobe, that only make her more devastatingly feminine.
Charlotte Gainsbourg, French actress and singer (and celebrity royalty in France) – has a very sophisticated edge. And like Caroline de Maigret she obviously styles herself, nothing is forced, her style is authentic and has a spontaneous quality. Maja Wyh, German blogger, has the oversized and layered looks down! Stop it Right Now blogger, Jayne Min, laid back LA tomboy who effortlessly rocks next level statement pieces like they are wardrobe basics.

If you could see any woman wearing your beautiful pieces, who would it be?

SM: Really anyone who falls in love with a piece and has a blast wearing it. If you mean who in the public eye, then why not all the women mentioned above!

IMG_1890

Are there any fun projects that you have coming up?

SM: I’m going ahead with a big project. I’m rebranding by bringing together my jewelry and styling websites under one name, Sasha Maks. it will be much easier for me to manage them in one place instead of going back and forth. It’s going to be a lot of work, but I think it will be worth it in the end. So right now, I’m excited about designing a new logo and just giving everything a revamp.

SUNBURST HEART PIN $95

Glamourist-Maria loves to find beautiful and glamorous fashion and share it with her audience.  You can see her picks on Pinterest and follow her blog.

Usually when one thinks of jewelry for Valentine’s Day, the first thing that usually comes to mind is some type of heart shaped pendant or charm. I’m in a slightly edgier state of mind this year – could it have something to do with the major buzz the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is generating? Whatever the reason, I am gravitating towards sexier pieces with a dark side. Here are my picks from Sasha’s collection.

Saha Maks Vintage Karl Lagerefeld ChokerOne of my favorite necklaces from Sasha’s collection. Provocative and risqué, you can wear this necklace with a suit—or nothing.
KARL LAGERFELD GRAPHIC CHOKER  $385

Sasha Maks Vintage Snake BraceletWhat could be more slinky and seductive than a snake head bracelet? (The answer: nothing). You can wear this with pretty much anything. I like wearing it with something shorter sleeves so you can really show it off.
SLEEK  GOLD TONE AND ENAMEL SNAKE BRACELET $185
Vintage Lanvin Pendant Necklace
The thick ‘twisted’ chain gives this gorgeous piece a little bondage vibe, but in a classy, super-stylish way.  You want to let this be the statement piece of your outfit.  I would wear it with something minimalistic and simple like a beautiful strapless jumpsuit.
LANVIN MODERNIST NECKLACE $1650

Vintage Onyx Bead Necklace with Panther Clasp
The panther clasp makes this dark piece sexy.  I would just wear this with a plain t-shirt or sweater and jeans.
DOUBLE STRAND ONYX PANTHER CLASP NECKLACE $425

 

Pri Fixe-the San Francisco-based fashion and style blog explores fashion trends, local events/shows, and homegrown designers in an effort to inspire readers to embrace their own creativity and personal style.

On this love-filled day, some of the first things that come to mind are flowers, cards, chocolates, and exotic getaways of some kind  to somewhere tropical or adventurous. In the event you aren’t passport ready, I recommend treating yourself (or others) because this is a universal, global day of love with another kind of exotic getaway -  fine, unique pieces that capture the essence of a vacation without ever having to leave your sweetie:

Sasha Maks Vintage Long Link EarringsRomanticize your look with these versatile, bronze-finished earrings set to complete almost any look in any color. With a hint of Grecian influence, these lovely additions will have him whispering sweet nothings in your ear.
LONG GEAR LINK EARRINGS $115  

Sasha Maks Vintage Boho Chic NecklaceIn an bold, statement piece showcasing emerald and amethyst pendant set in brass, this piece couples well with a sexy, plunging necklace with a subtle nod to the precious stones and metals of the Middle East.
GLASS EMERALD AND AMETHYST PENDANT NECKLACE $185

Sasha Maks  Vintage Coral Flower BroochInstead of getting flowers, why not wear them? This fun and flirty brooch pairs well on your blazer or jacket to make for a sassy addition to your special outfit -  as if you just left a tropical island with your honey.
CORAL BRANCH FLOWER BROOCH $165

Sasha Maks Vintage Curb Link Necklace
You can go just about anywhere with this gold & rhinestone rendition of a chain link necklace – pair it with a strappy, black number as if you were walking the streets of Paris or Monaco enjoying the evening with your sweetheart.
GLAM CURB LINK CHAIN NECKLACE $185
