How To Get The Engagement Ring You Want
Sure, you could always just slip a magazine ad into his brief case, steer him into a jewelry store at the mall, or tell him pointe blank. But where’s the mystery in all that? We prefer a slightly more coy approach…. 1. Make a Pinterest board of rings you want, and share it with him. Ain’t no shame — there are already hundreds of “Rings I Want” boards on the site. (If you don't want to send it to him directly, just "share" it with your "friends" on Facebook...repeatedly.) 2. Wear jewelry in the same style or shape that you'd like your ring to be. (Guys do occasionally notice that stuff.) 3. Work diamond terms into everyday conversation. Like "classic," "vintage," "solitaire," "princess," "cut," "color" and "3 carats." 4. If your heart is set on a Tiffany ring, sign him up for the Tiffany newsletter. Ditto for Zales, Gemvara, Blue Nile… in fact, if subtlety’s not your thing, sign him up for all of them! (more…)

As an antidote to the mid-winter slump, where you start to repeat the same outfits over again while you wait for spring, we've chosen four of our favorite bloggers and show you how to achieve their unique looks. Take a few cues, and pair some unexpected pieces, with a little style inspiration from gals who dig deep into their closets every day for new looks: Sea of Shoes Who: Jane Aldridge is a Texas high school student who pairs vintage and bargain finds with her mother's high-end clothes--she's got a penchant for amazing shoes paired with vintage jewelry, plus a closet filled with designer finds to covet. This year she was featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair, and designed a line of shoes for Urban Outfitters. Did we mention she's a teenager? Pair together a fur vest by Juicy Couture ($209), and a drapey asymmetrical skirt like this one by Dondup Quodlibet ($149) to get an unexpectedly cool vibe that's a mix of fabrics, textures and lengths. The boots Jane is wearing are wedges, with a slouchy detail and buckles--these boots by Sudini ($40, down from $200) channel the pointed shape of Jane's slouchier pair, and an enamel giraffe bracelet by Kenneth Jay Lane ($59.98) covers her penchant for vintage animal jewelry.
