Magnificent Monday: Angela Bassett

Magnificent Monday

Not only stunningly beautiful, but amazingly talented Bassett has been recognized with numerous nominations & awards throughout her career, She’s known for portraying strong characters & biographical roles for real African American women. She was the first member of her family to attend college & graduate school, gaining degrees in African America studies & fine arts, both from Yale. Much like many of the stars I have honored for their magnificence, she is a staunch supporter of many charities such as The Boys & Girls Club of America, Habitat for Humanity, is very active as an ambassador for UNICEF in the United States & supports a variety of programs for the arts, especially for youth.

Her style certainly stands out from the crowd, which is often sophisticated & can be quite dramatic. She does appear to enjoy accessorizing with earrings, bangles & rings, so I have focused on these three in the little wishlist for today. All of today’s selections were found at Tidebuy & as per usual, I have listed full price for them, as their sales change frequently & I cannot be sure what the price you might find following my links, though I assure you, this site never sells it’s items for their full list price. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Julia Roberts

Magnificent Monday

This iconic actress knew great success from her earlier works, but Pretty Woman brought her international acclaim. Throughout the ’90s Roberts was the highest paid actress in Hollywood, with numerous awards & nominations under her belt, giving us a clue as to why. I do find it interesting to note that her earlier dreams were to be a doctor of veterinary medicine, as I too have a soft spot for animals.

Aside from her sparkling smile, she often accessorizes with a lovely selection of earrings, with the occasional neckline enhancement. Inspired by her beautiful style I have found several lovelies at Amazon for your perusing pleasure. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Susan Sarandon

Magnificent Monday

The ever lovely Susan Sarandon has been entertaining us on the screen since 1970 & on Broadway since ’72. In her long illustrious career she has won numerous awards & accolades. She has also championed many causes, mostly of the social & economic justice variety. Yes, she’s generally a bleeding heart liberal (not that I find that to be a terrible thing, or in some cases an incredible thing), who has more recently come under fire on twitter for for saying (paraphrasing likely here) that Trump isn’t that bad. I don’t normally mention politics here, as mostly it’s dirty & exhausting, but I thought her recent experience was a bit funny. Getting back to the business of this post, I first came to know of Sarandon by way of Janet in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, if you haven’t noticed that I’m a bit off/weird then you haven’t been paying attention, LOL.

Her style is distinctly feminine & often conservative, though she sure doesn’t shy away from displaying her curves when she has a mind to. I’ve noticed a particular fondness for, somewhat, simple necklaces & she has occasion to brandish wrist adornment as well. So I chose to focus on these attributes when compiling today’s inspired wishlist & I found all of these lovelies at Target (some are on clearance & won’t be around very much longer).

Sarandon Inspired1) Bangle Bracelet Set ($4.99)
2) Women’s Metal Cluster Neck with Feather ($7.48)
3) Women’s Necklace Pendant with Double Teardrop Castings and Stone ($8.48)
4) Women’s Bracelet Set with Mixed Beads, Braided Cord with Flower Charm ($9.99)
5) Women’s Necklace with Feather Pendant Cluster ($12.99)

Magnificent Monday: Cate Blanchett

Magnificent Monday

This Australian marvel has won numerous awards for both theater & big screen performances. Blanchett speaks to both my inner fashionista & my inner nerd (not that I keep either of those hidden, lol). I could never forget her legendary portrayal of the iconic Galadriel, which was beyond spectacular (as if you couldn’t tell by my prior use of the word legendary). I’m also looking forward to the November release of Thor: Ragnarok, where she has been cast as Hela. So, yeah, having a couple of nerdgasms here, LOL. I also appreciate that she’s done some voice work for Family Guy, not everyone would be willing to have their names associated with such scathing social satire.

Her style is elegant & often conservative, compared to many starlets who appear to feel they are in a contest to see who can wear the least at public events (not trying to down this empowerment, just making a note that Blanchett has made vastly different choices for her public image). She tends to favor lovely dangle earrings & bold necklaces, so I have taken that into account while putting together today’s wishlist. Today’s choice selections were found at OASAP, from their ever evolving selection of goodies.

Blanchett Inspired1) Vintage Silver Tone Water Drop Pendant Necklace ($6.99)
2) Bold Layer Necklace ($6.99)
3) Antique Cone Pattern Drop Earrings ($7.59)
4) Demure Floral Dangle Necklace ($9.99)
5) Stylish Pearl Crystal Rhinestone Necklace ($11.99)
6) FashionSterling Silver Zircon Decoration Pearl Earrings ($14.99)
7) Retro Multi-layer Stainless Steel Chain Necklace ($14.99)
8) Vintage Luxe Faux Pearl Chain Necklace ($16.99)
9) 925 Sterling Silver Freshwater Pearl Dangle Earrings ($19.99)
Long or short, bag or shoe, however you choose to wear the new lace this spring—make it your own.

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

While Easter may not be one of the my holidays, I do celebrate with family, it does have a multitude of similarities with one I do observe religiously. Aside from all of that, who doesn’t love a chocolate holiday?  I know I do, pretty much every holiday associated in any way with chocolate, LOL. This time I was wandering about on Amazon & started to look around for spring themed goodies. Some of the items I found are, doubtless, best for party type situations & others are just feel good fun. 😀

Watermelon Wednesday: Strappy Season

Watermelon Wednesday

We’re beginning to get into sandal weather around here & I thought it would be a good time to highlight a lovely pair from Styles for Less. As the title would imply, these beauties have a strappy look, though they’re really cut outs, but whatever…. Anyway, these sandals are on sale, due to this I imagine they will run out soon, so if you want a pair, might want to jump on that soon. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Meryl Streep

Magnificent Monday

A woman of almost regal beauty, she’s been delighting audiences with her stage performances since she was in high school. For a long time she didn’t really take her movie career very seriously, preferring instead to stick with the theater. Streep’s focus changed after she saw Taxi Driver & was amazed by De Niro’s acting prowess. Much like many of the women I honor on Mondays, Meryl is a philanthropist as she champions numerous charities & causes (far too many to go into any real detail). There are so many things to admire about this amazing woman.

Throughout her many appearances, aside from performances, I have noticed that she seems particularly fond of embellished hoops & bold necklaces.  While I haven’t tried to precisely clone her style I have found several treasures that are reminiscent of her fashion sense. Today’s wishlist comes from Tidebuy & as you may or may not recall, whenever I do listing from this shop I always list full price, as everything is always on sale there, but the discount varies. Very few of these items are very expensive, but for those few that are, you are very unlikely to pay more than $10 for any of them. So go on & get your accessories on 😉

Streep Inspired1) Alloy Moon Diamante Pendant Earrings ($23)
2) Pearl & Gemstones Decorated Women Earrings ($22)
3) Water Droplets Diamante Pendant Earrings ($31)
4) Pearl Circle Hollow Design Women’s Earrings ($11)
5) Metal Circle and Ball Design Asymmetric Earrings ($9)
6) Pearl and Rhinestone Inlaid Anti Allergy Stud Earrings ($14)
7) European Double Layer Circle Balls & Pearls Necklace ($15)
8) Punk Style Rivets Design Golden Chain Necklace ($10)
9) Splendid Multilayer Pearls Necklace ($18)
