Fashion Tip: What to Wear with Long Necklaces

If there’s one thing to know about long necklaces, it’s that they look best when worn with plain tees and boat neck-tops and dresses. So we decided to put together three style inspirations to give you a step in the right direction.

1) casual 2) work/business networking 3) garden party/bridal shower—all paired with the perfect necklace as the cherry on top.

Mad Men Season Premiere!

We know that we’re not the only ones who fawn over the characters and their impeccable wardrobe choices on the set of Sterling Cooper & Partners ad agency—this is 1960s fashion at its best. Mad Men’s 7th season is finally airing this Sunday at 10/9c and we’re thrilled to see more of Joan Harris in action. But our first memory of her will always be Joan Holloway with her pen necklace amulet that, we believe, has played a part in taking her to the climb from office manager to a partner at the firm!

Fashion Fix: Layered Necklaces

We’ve been a little obsessed with layered necklaces lately, and for good reason. Now that we can part with our jackets and weighty outerwear, we can replace it with necklaces that make statement. It adds a lot more depth and flavor to your outfits. And rather than trying to achieve the layer-effect by adding layers of individual necklaces (with sometimes a tangled mess) the work has already been done for you. Wear them with a plain sweater, strapless dress or a scoop neck blouse, and that’ll do it!

Gearing Up: Music Festival Fashion

Coachella is coming up in just a few short weeks from April 11th to the 13th, and the lineup is pretty amazing—Arcade Fire, Muse, Beck, OutKast, and Pharrell Williams, just to name a few. But we know what the main concern and talk will be about, as it has always been: the fashion, of course. Being that 1928 is a vintage fashion jeweler, we love to see how different looks can be incorporated with all the vintage inspired goodies we carry. And might we add, the great thing about 1928 is the endless number of choices that cater to, literally, every style and need.

Two great lines that deserve a mention and a unique style marry for the musical festival are T.R.U. which has a true rugged and chic bohemian appeal, and The Vatican Library Collection, which is inspired from historical artifacts,  the Library, as well as European architecture, meaning it’s chock-full of faith-inspired and museum-worthy looking pieces. Music and fashion are always related, and with the mix of musical styles that will be present, we think a good jewelry mishmash is the most appropriate way to go. Classic and orthodox meets free-spirited edge. Have a lovely weekend ladies!
