Making Statements in CHICAGO!

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!  I am beyond thrilled to introduce to you Miss Alexandra Berlin of Things That Sparkle.  Although I have never officially met Alex, we have a few mutual friends and through them I found her incredible blog!  She is created her own interior design business, 

and still is passionate about chronicling her life through her amazing blog.  While planning my own wedding I was obsessive about checking her Wedding Wednesdays posts to see if there was anything I was missing and I was not alone.  Alex gets a ton of engagement with her blog which is obviously something I strive for – so all of you out there–start commenting!!!  🙂

 I have asked Alex to share some of her favorite “sparkle” with us so check it out below!!!

Hi all, I am Alex from Things That Sparkle and I am so excited to be sharing my favorite statement making jewelry pieces here!

I love big statement necklaces. They take any simple outfit to the next level. These are my three favorite ones right now.

This is my grandmother’s engagement ring. I was the only granddaughter who it actually fit so I was lucky enough to inherit it. It is such a special piece. I love how big it is, such a fun thing to dress up any outfit, and even better, remind me of my grandma.

These bangles are a favorite of mine. The thick one was the present my fiance gave me to try and trick me on the day we got engaged (long story), the medium one belonged to my other grandmother, and the thin one was a present to myself when I got my first job out of college. I love they look together, or separately, the colors and patterns are so much fun.

I also love big statement making earrings. I have really dark hair so the brighter and more bold they are the better.


Thanks for having me over today Hillary! xo

I hope you all enjoyed getting to know Alex!!!
