Last year we littered Los Angeles with wildflower seeds — freeways, center dividers, sidewalks, parking lots, all over the place.
I have to say, perusing through Fantasy Jewelry Box‘s online boutique is addicting. I mean, they don’t call it Fantasy for nothing. A two-carat canary yellow pear-cut CZ studs for less than $25? An exact replica of those ginormous emerald earrings Angelina Jolie wore on the red carpet last year? A stunning sterling silver butterfly ring that looks more like brilliant little stars hovering over your ring finger?
Like I said, it makes the mind swirl with possibilities.
And just to give you a taste, we have three aqua blue enamel flower earrings from Fantasy Jewelry Box to give away to our loyal readers. Called Caylee’s Blue Flower, the silver earrings feature an organically shaped flower filled with enamel that perfectly captures the colors of the Caribbean. A dollop of a cubic zirconia finishes off each 1.25 inch by 1 inch flower. It goes for $22.95 at fantasyjewelrybox.com, but you can win a pair for free.

In Audrey Magazine‘s Spring issue, we opened our Audrey Style section with an ode to all things blooming in jewelry. But it’s not just jewelry that’s gone daffodils. I can’t get enough of the fleur du jour look seen everywhere, from jeans to bags to even cosmetics.
Floral prints this spring go from sophisticated watercolor interpretations:
(Editor’s note: Picture the Jonesy watercolor top with a pair of tough skinny pants, like on Eugenia here. This spring, anyone can do floral, even your rocker types.)
I love fast fashion — I’m too much of a chameleon and suffer from fashion-ADD, so I need my fast fashion fix as often as I need coffee. But one spring trend featured in Audrey Magazine’s Spring issue – bold florals — I can’t get enough of.
In both bright prints (Liberty of London’s collection for Target exemplifies the trend) as well as flower-shaped accessories, florals are the easiest way to update your spring wardrobe. And with the weather slowly warming up, flowers feel so right right now.
So of course, you take fast fashion, mix it with florals, and I’m hooked. I love Vera Wang’s ultra-affordable line for Kohl’s, Simply Vera. She’s got the flower accessory trend down, and the bright pink hue is so addictive!
I also love the fact that model Shu Pei Qin is modeling this season’s campaign. She’s one model that’s really growing on me.
And there are plenty of florals to pick from that you can wear now, whether a billowy dress paired with tights or a smile-inducing tee with a chiffon trimmed cardigan and boyfriend jeans.
