Join in the fight against Frump!

Fussy thinks that there is “There’s way too much ugly out there, and way too little style” in the world today, and I aim to help her alleviate some of it! This week her focus is on jewelry and she asks for our tips on how to show some style. I am a huge fan of color and bold jewelry. Almost anyone can pull it off, if you just try.

Here are some helpful tips:

Don’t just go for new. Go for vintage. Some of the best “bold” jewelry pieces can be found for cheap at vintage or thrift stores. Aged pieces tend to have lots of character and pizzazz and can say a lot about your personality. Not to mention, it’s much easier on your pocketbook.

Don’t be afraid of color. This can be the most fun, whether you choose a stone or a beaded necklace with a splash of red or green. It doesn’t matter if the stones are real or faux; the larger size will make your piece unique. And, the color will grab the attention of people from far away. If the piece of jewelry has a little sparkle, even better. This will glitz up any outfit and prepare it for a night out on the town.

Whatever you decide, bold jewelry must fit your bold personality. If you’re not already outgoing, these pieces could make you more so. Just be sure to find a piece of jewelry that you are comfortable with.


  1. Now those are great tips.

    Oh, how I love vintage.

    Thank you so much for joining the fun.

  2. I love jewelry. A cute pair of earrings can make you feel so much better about how you look that day.

  3. I’ve just started wearing fun jewelery as of late. Sometimes I feel like if I go for something too bold I’ll stand out like a neon sign. Have to get over that!

  5. I have my own handmade jewelry business and I get so tired of people asking me to make a dainty little necklace or earrings. Bold is the key! Thanks for pointing that out!

  6. I’m a big girl at 5’11″…that dainty stuff gets lost on me. I have a jewelry box full of chunky, funky bold jewelry – glad to know someone else agrees! Great tips!
