Pop of Color

rosarycollage2hIf you know us, you know that we don’t throw a bunch of color at you all at once. But we stumbled upon some great crystal rosary chain (thanks, Girltrendz), and couldn’t resist. But to avoid looking too much like Auntie Mame, we mixed it with interesting long and short chain in brass and silver, so you can wear it alone long, doubled (yes, it’s 36″), or mixed with your other Michelle Rhodes jewelry. But don’t forget we try to include some words to keep you thinking. This time we’ve done sayings like “Luck Favors the Prepared”, “Love and Kindness are never wasted”, and “With Pure intent comes Pure Result”. $67 and available by emailing info@michellerhodes.com.

 

Light and bright

mayjune2015c As the weather gets hotter and hotter, it’s time to switch things up a bit. While we love the layered look that cooler weather brings, unless you’re going just to dinner or drinks, the look is just too heavy. So we designed these lovely gold or silver daisy necklaces that are still interesting but without the heft. We continue to love these looks from HUNKYDORY Stockholm and MADEWELL that keep the look simple. Pair it with this great fringe bag, also from HUNKYDORY but in the same light color and call it a day.

Time to shake up the land of everything must be the same…

Amber

While digging through the archives today, we came across this picture of the beautiful Amber, Class of 2016, shot by talented photographer KELLY WACHS. When we did the shoot, we wanted to convey that you can be the same and different all at once, and that is interesting. You can wear the blue uniform blazer, but you can also carry a great LOUIS VUITTON EPI BAG, and wear DOC MARTIN COMBAT BOOTS, and wear all of your jewelry instead of one bracelet, one necklace, one pair of earrings.

For us “girls of a certain age”– Tired of capris? Try a stretch pencil skirt in the NEWEST MIDI LENGTH. Can’t buy ANOTHER  pair of flip flops? Embrace the new “geek chic” look of BIRKENSTOCKS. Top off the look with new shades from WARBY PARKER in a traditional shape and nontraditional finish, and of course piles of MICHELLE RHODES JEWELRY, and you’re good to go.

Spring has sprung

spring post 1Here in Atlanta, one minute it’s winter, then the next minute it’s 85 and sunny. So there isn’t much time to wear those great transitional pieces out there. IN THE REST OF THE WORLD, however, there’s plenty of time. Our new love of beautiful, simple luxury clothing is HUNKYDORY out of Sweden. Among our favorite outfits is this DRAPEY LACE TUNIC that we have paired with comfy, SLOUCHY SHORTS in a perfect length in a beautiful spring color palette. When we get some time to work creatively, we like to add layering necklaces made from labradorite, sea glass, pyrite and diamond to kick the luxury up a notch. (These one of a kind necklaces can be bought by emailing us at customerservice@michellerhodes.com)  Who is your favorite designer for spring??
