Statement Necklaces for Petites

Fall arrived quite suddenly and here we are in a rainy and cold day and nothing else to do but to search the web for interesting posts about this fall's trends.

That is when I ran into a series of articles about fashion tips for petite women on About.com . I am a petite woman myself, so when I run into a bunch of articles focused on petite women I was supper excited. The articles offer general fashion tips but the most existing one is about Necklaces for Petites.

It covers tips on a variety of necklace styles including the statement necklaces. I have seen pictures of statement necklaces on the runways, and every time, I wondered, gee that covers my whole torso, I can never wear that.

Artisan Jewelry Gift Certificate Giveaway

$25 Gift Certificate

From Zeba Collection ($25 value) – Open worldwide

One of the drawbacks of having an online shop is missing the interaction with the customers. In a retail store you can be the fly on the wall and hear customer's opinions while they shop. With an online shop, you view the item from your home and I never get to hear your feedback. So, this giveaway is to give me a change to hear your suggestions about my shop, products, policies and so on. To show my appreciation for your time and help I am offering Free shipping on your first purchase to anyone that participates, in addition for a chance to be entered in the drawing for a $25 gift certificate from my Etsy Shop. Gift certificates must be redeemed through my Etsy shop only toward the purchase of products listed in the online shop.

Remembering This Summer

Even thought in theory there are still 14 days of summer left, here in Michigan it already feels like fall. The temperature is only around high 70s and fall plants such as Mums are starting to bloom. Most plans are acting as if it is fall already. We had a cold spring and a cool summer, only a handful of days the temperature reached around 90 degrees. The raspberries ripened a month later than they should have and the blackberries are still trying to ripen. The only good thing that came out of this cool summer was an abundance of cabbage and the reduced population of Japanese Beetles, so I am thankful for that.
So, farewell all my summer plants, until we meet again next spring.

I am very existed about this article on one of my earrings. I thought the reference to 'MadMen' was very clever, which by the way I am a huge fan. I think I am more of a Betty Draper type. Check it out Feminist review
