    DREAMING OF A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS // with Alyssa from @alhblog


    The gorgeous Alyssa, of @alhblog on Instagram and www.alhblog.com online, recently modelled a few of our gorgeous pieces. Alyssa is a graphic designer from Seattle, with one of the most fabulously colourful instagram feeds. Check out her write up on her Ruby Olive jewels below... 

    "What outfit isn't made better after accessorizing? Today I'm teaming up with Ruby Olive to style their awesome jewelry for these chillier days! If you like statement pieces be sure to check out their website for some funky earrings like the ones I'm wearing here (mine are the "white multi")! Everything I ordered was surprisingly light weight, and their aesthetic is fun and bright all year round.

    In the winter and fall it can be difficult to find clothes that feel my style. I'm all about the cozy sweaters and giant blanket scarves, but I love them even more when they're colorful! When I first saw this Marlowe Boutique cardigan on instagram I knew I had to have it, and it's been a staple in my closet ever since - whether I'm wrapped up in it at work, or staying warm during my Christmas shopping trips. The texture goes perfectly with these earrings and gives a whimsical vibe that I really like! 

    Expect to see more of my Ruby Olive accessories in the future, and in the mean time be sure to browse their collection here."



     

    Celebrating Awesome Women // Dayle from Artful City Style

    Celebrating Awesome Women // Dayle from Artful City Style

    (Dayle wears jewels from the Mod Squad Collection.)

    Next up in our series of Celebrating Awesome Women is the fabulous Dayle from Artful City Style (@artfulcitystyle). 

    We've been following @artfulcitystyle on Instagram for a while, and admiring from a distance her eye for textures, shapes and especially accessorizing! Her Insta is a gallery of amazingly bold looks, other stylish women and beautiful Manhattan streets. After a while we knew we had to take the jump and send a PM to her, we just had the feeling that Dayle and RO belonged together. And since then we've seen Dayle rocking her RO on the streets of Manhattan. Talk about a dream come true!

    Our photographer Charli recently visited the Big Apple and caught up with Dayle on our behalf to snap a few photos and have a few laughs! We wanted the goss on how she became such a stylishly cool woman, so read below for a glimpse into Dayle's fashion history, advice and secrets! 

    (Dayle wears Carousel Striped Drop Earrings, Art Series Disc Collar Necklace and various bangles.)

    RO: What was your first fashion moment, when you knew you had a passion for style?

    Dayle: When I was in elementary school, I had a year when I would wear nothing but purple.  When it came to fashion, I danced to my own drum from a very early age!

     

    RO: How do you get dressed in the morning? do you start with one piece and build around that or just start throwing things on?

    Dayle: I either start with an accessory I want to build around or start with an article of clothing I want to accessorize. If it’s an article of clothing, I play with bracelets, earrings, scarves or necklaces, shoes, socks and glasses. It is like painting. I am working on a composition. If I am focusing on an accessory, I try to pick clothing that will highlight it but not overshadow it. And then I figure out the other accessories that work well with it.

    (Dayle wears the Carousel Striped Disc Necklace, Wonderland Flat Disc Necklace and various bangles.)


    RO: Do you have any colours you would never wear together or any that find you are always drawn to?

    Dayle: I love strong colors—one of the many reasons I love Ruby Olive jewelry so much! I don’t wear beige. I also love black and white. As a New Yorker, I have my share of black in my closet, but think of that as a blank canvas on which to feature my accessories.



    RO: Which is your fave piece in your wardrobe, whether it be clothes, shoes, jewels or something else?

    Dayle: That is truly an impossible question to answer! I am drawn to mixed textiles, interesting shapes, and strong colors. My accessories are definitely a favorite part of my wardrobe.  I could wear the same black dress every day and make it look different!



    RO: What is your top styling tip?

    Dayle: Don’t be afraid to express yourself in your clothing and accessories. Have fun getting dressed! It is a creative art form! I truly believe that if one has confidence, one can wear virtually anything!


    RO: And what is your no-no, a look that you would never wear?

    Dayle: If I go to a store and am told that something is the most popular item, I run for the hills.  I don’t want to look like everyone else.  I just want to look like myself!

    Fantastic advice from a truly awesome woman! We can't wait until we get over to New York to meet her ourselves!

    Celebrating Awesome Women // Elizabeth

     

    We first met Elizabeth back in 2016, when after aeons of likes, comments and messages on Instagram we finally caught up for a coffee. We were expecting her to be loud, crazy and excitable, but contrary to her bold, colourful and outrageous outfits, we met with gentle, softly spoken and eloquent Elizabeth. 

     

    If you haven't seen her Instagram, @timeless_styling is a celebration of colour, prints, designers and accessories. Elizabeth's eye for accessory layering, matching hues, creating beautiful shapes and mixing prints is rivalled only by the seminal Iris Apfel. Armed with a sewing machine, a fabulous collection of beads and buttons, Elizabeth could take your most stock standard dress and turn it into something fabulous. 

     
    Carousel Artisan Striped Disc Drop Earrings $32

    Her passion for all things fashion began essentially at birth but blossomed as soon as she was old enough to thread a needle, she recalls, "I used to create clothes for my doll, by wrapping pieces of her remnant fabrics around its body and crudely hand-stitching them together. I started sewing my own clothes from the age of 13, in part due to my parents being unable to afford the latest trends, but mostly because the thrill of wearing something different to anyone else was exciting."

     

    This passion developed into owning her own business, Tpinjii Designs, which she ran for about 10 years (mid 1980s to 1990s) and then progressed into working in various Australian boutiques and working as an Art teacher. 

     

    Her attitude to colour is one of devotion and experimentation. There isn't a hue she shies away from, with her Instagram a gallery of bright jewel tones, muted greys and everything in between. Where she truly adds the magic is in her ability to mix textures and fabrics. Delicate silks alongside leather, rustic linens with velvet. She creates looks that have an incredible depth of detail and care. 

     Hands with Stacked Bangles and Rings
    Carousel Striped Bangle $45 and Wonderland 2 Tone Bangles $30

    We have always loved catching up with Elizabeth over a cup of tea and have been waiting for the opportunity to get her in front of the camera. So when busy schedules finally aligned and we were able to capture her truly unique styling in a photo shoot recently, we were over the moon! 

     

    We gave her free reign over our entire Carousel collection (plus a few more) and sat back and watched while she worked her magic. Bangles were stacked, necklaces were layered and the results are truly stunning.
