5 Things I Love – July 11 + a lia sophia Giveaway!

image for weekly list of five things I'm currently loving in life, music, art, etc.

As of today the new lia sophia Fall/Winter catalog and Color special edition is live! With 617 styles in the new catalog it’s harder than ever to narrow it down, but here are my 5 favorite new styles to hit the catalog.

1. Blushing Necklace

Uber-feminine with a trendy vintage vibe, I can’t wait to acquire this necklace for myself so that I can rock it with jeans and a tee.

2. Curio Necklace

Another fun, funky vintage look that reminds me of a collection of old brooches that have been strung together for a new look and new life. It looks great styled with a doubling of the Classique necklace (as seen on pg 15 of the catalog).

3. Sugar Dusted Earrings

Studs are back and these little beauties combine utilitarian matte finish with a dusting of shimmering crystal. Available in matte silver with clear crystals or matte gold with black diamond crystals, at $32 a pair I’m getting both (especially with the buy 1, get 2 @1/2 special this month).

4. Black Leather Wrap Bracelet

Charms have found their way into lia sophia and I love this wrapped leather charm bracelet with it’s assortment of mini slides available to customize it to your personal style.

5. Rock Crystal Hematite Necklace

The last one is always the hardest. There are so many pieces that I would like to include in this list, but I knew it wouldn’t be complete without this necklace.

So, what are your top 5 from the new catalog?

Share your top 5 below and be entered to win the Moroccan necklace and Haven earrings, both collectible pieces which have a combined retail value of $108.

Great retro houseware, decor and more. As House 8810’s site says, make your roost rock.
