Meet the Stylist: Amanda

image

Where can you find Amanda, RocksBox’s very own senior stylist, when she’s not swapping studs for statement earrings or perusing designer collections for that next must-have? Here, at Jane on Fillmore sipping a latte with friends in her charming San Francisco neighborhood of Pacific Heights. Here are ten more fun facts you didn’t already know about your sparkle-savvy stylist.

1. What three things are you obsessed with right now?

DIY projects (I just refurbished a dresser for my apartment!), Sam Smith, and leopard print accessories.

2. Who is your style muse?

Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

3. What’s your go-to accessory?

I wear Gorjana’s Taner Shimmer necklace everyday. It goes with everything and has just a hint of sparkle.

4. What are you reading right now?

I just finished The Goldfinch last weekend and highly recommend it. 

5. Tips for transitioning jewelry from day to night?

Swapping your earrings can instantly flip any look. For day, I’ll usually wear a pair of studs and replace them with a dangly earring for night. And why not add a few bangles to my stack while I’m at it?

6. How does your jewelry evolve from work to weekend?

During the work week, I opt for more delicate pieces. Come the weekend, it’s fun to show off a statement necklace or bold cuff to add some unexpected edge to my outfit.

7. What are your three fall wardrobe staples?

Booties (heeled or flat), cashmere sweaters, and a quality leather jacket. 

8. Jewelry trend you’re loving?

Pearls and spikes. I love the mix of classic and edgy.

9. How do you switch up your jewelry from summer to fall?

One super easy way is to play with color. For fall, I’ll replace summer’s neons and pastels with darker, jewel-toned hues - like emerald!

10. Favorite fall weekend activity?

I love to spend weekend mornings with friends over brunch, followed by a sunny day hike (which I’m coincidentally doing right after this!).

Must-Have: Sweater Weather Accessories

image

Pumpkin spice lattes and cozy knitted sweaters are just two of our obsessions for fall. But there’s something we’re even more excited about lately: Finding the perfect accessories to take that chunky knit from frumpy to fabulous. Here are three tips to make the most out of this season’s sweater weather.

1. Consider your collar.

Sweaters are unmatched when it comes to beating the cold, but when it comes to showing off jewelry, they’re a little sparkle shy. Our solution: Slide on a necklace that sits lower than your summer delicates, like this Margaret Elizabeth pendant, so you won’t have to hide it underneath that crew neck keeping you warm.

2. Roll up, show off.

There are two steps to showing off this perfectly purple Loren Hope cuff: 1) roll up those knitted sleeves (two times will do!) and 2) pop on the statement piece. No matter the cuff on hand, exposing some wrist with a simple sleeve roll lets you really showcase your gems.

3. Get handy.

Sure, fall introduces a little more chill than summer - but mitten season is still a few months away. Take advantage of your wool-less hands by stepping up your ring game. Flaunt this blue stone by Margaret Elizabeth, build an eye-catching ring stack, or dare to mix the two styles.
