    I like the idea of layering bracelets but hate bracelets that make a ton of noise, particularly bangles. Do you have any suggestions?

      Try leather bracelets. They’re much quieter 🙂 #3 (Color Craze) barely made any noise at all!

    Love the new “How to” series! My favorites were the gold delicates and color craze:) I’d love to get your thoughts on what to wear to an interview (for a graphic designer/art director position). I struggle between being conservative and showing a little creative flair.

    What a great video! I’ve always been a silver girl, but lately I’ve been wearing a lot of rose gold! It’s so pretty! Can’t wait to see more of this series! For the spring and summer, what are cute ways to wear sneakers, like Keds or Converse? Thanks! 🙂
