Tag Archives: layering


I am so excited to announce my very first giveaway courtesy of the fabulous Fornash!  When it comes to accessories I have never been able to take Coco Chanel’s advice, instead I always add one more thing before leaving my apartment and right now I am all about layering bracelets. Fornash has such incredible bracelets for stacking and I just can’t get enough of them.  This giveaway features the Melisa bracelet, which is perfect for layering or bold enough to be worn on its own.  At the risk of sounding so 2012, let’s get this arm party started!

The rules of entry are as follows (and SUPER simple):

1. Comment on this post & pick your fav color of the Melisa bracelet (make sure to leave your twitter handle & email)

2. Follow Garden of Glam on twitter by clicking here 

3.  Follow Fornash on twitter by clicking here

4. (optional) For extra entries tweet at Garden of Glam & Fornash about how excited you are for this giveaway!!

The winner will be announced in one week on 2/20!  This giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.

Day Six of Garden of Glam’s Holiday Gift Guide: Jaclyn Mason (owner of Charm)

Jaclyn Mason is the owner of Charm, a fabulous jewelry and accessories boutique in Georgetown.  I collaborated with Charm on a previous post, which was dedicated to Holiday Bling and had the best time playing dress up in their one of a kind pieces.  Charm has such incredible accessories and Jaclyn has absolutely impeccable taste making Charm your one stop shop for all things bling!

As a reminder, I have asked each contributor to share what’s on their wish list and give list this holiday season with the hope of making your holiday shopping a little easier.

These headphones are so glam and are the perfect accessory to any outfit.  It is a thoughtful gift for music lovers, siblings, friends or a significant other.  Check out the more gender neutral alternative here.

Fresh, Rose Face Mask.  We all know the holidays can be a stressful time.  When I want to unwind, I use this face mask.  It brightens my skin and is so relaxing.

I am always in the market for great skin products and recommendations are always appreciated.  This mask is soothing and rejuvenating.  It’s a perfect present for a sister, mother, aunt, friend or roommate.

Tory Burch, Coley Suede and Shearling Slippers.  You can’t go wrong with a shearling slipper.  They’re so comfy, and the sequins logo gives them just enough bling.

These slippers look amazing and like something you could live in all winter!  These would be great for a sister, mom, girlfriend or aunt.  Also, in the same realm of comfort, I literally live in my bathrobes, all of which were incredibly successful Christmas presents. How cozy does this one look?!

Dogeared Stud Earrings.  You can never have too many studs!  I love these because they are so small but can stand on their own.

Jaclyn is right, you can never have too many studs!  I love these studs because they are interesting, simple and affordable!  These earrings would be great for a sibling, friend, roommate, cousin or girlfriend.

Tai Bracelets.  These bracelets are just amazing!  We sell these all year round at the store.  They are great for layering or for wearing on their own.

I don’t know if you have noticed, but I love wearing tons of bracelets and am always in search of bracelets to add to the arm party.  The tai bracelets are so great for layering.  Wonderful gift for a friend, roommate, sister or cousin.

AV Max Teardrop Pendant Necklace.  I rarely give small necklaces as gifts, but these are an exception.  The stones are so beautiful, and each one is a little different, so you feel like you’re giving something that is one of a kind.

These pendants are so beautiful!  I normally where super chunky oversized everything, but I am very into simple delicate necklaces right now.  This would be perfect for a girlfriend, sister or friend.

Studs are the perfect way to add a little edge to your look.  An accessory that once belonged exclusively to bikers and punks can now easily be integrated into any outfit!  From hardcore leather jackets to subtle bangles to flashy flats, studs are for EVERYONE!

I LOVE the intensity of this jacket, yet it still seems so accesible.
