Candy Gems

Invitation to Chanel Cruise 2013 (above) Show (below)

Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel ~ Scrumptious

I am in LOVE with these shoes!
Karl Lagerfeld sent his 2013 Cruise collection for Chanel down a “runway” at Versailles yesterday. Models strutted in candy-colored wigs and pastels hues. Indications continue to reveal an ever growing trend in fashion towards the colorful, as both hot and lush colors and soft pastels have been seen on the catwalks from Milan to London to New York and LA.

BE Couture gives you total design freedom to select your material, color and hardware and add extras to personalize your dream bag.

If you are like me, when you open your wardrobe a sea of neutrals abounds with a spatter of color pops and prints.  The jump to cladding top to toe in pastel lilac may be too much for the average lass, or laddie for that matter.  Sometimes the best way to introduce new shades and colors is through the accessory.

In my search for some colorful accents I recently came across some SWEET as CANDY new finds that I wanted to share.

Silver Continent ~ Scrumptious

From the Silver Continent Summer 2012 Collection I discovered bracelets & necklaces in recycled sterling silver with precious and semi-precious natural gemstones. I am currently in love with the pink coral, amethyst and pastel turquoise. These are not for the faint of heart as they are studded with sprinkled with pave diamonds. Rubies, pink sapphires and other precious stones are available by special order ~ hmmmm maybe a custom piece to go with the custom handbag?

Here is a recipe for a candy gem I found on Hungryhippie that's super fun and and kid friendly too:

Candy Gem

  • Envirotex lite or epoxy resin
  • Bottle caps
  • Bowl & spoon
  • Colorful candy sprinkles
  • Jewelry hardware (rings,bails,hairpins)
  • E6000 super glue


Have fun with it!  Summer is on its SWEET way.
