Magnificent Monday: Dolly Parton

Magnificent Monday

A true southern belle & an amazing singer, Dolly has been in the spotlight throughout my life. She’s also an accomplished actress, having had many different roles through the years. An avid supporter of literacy, her Dollywood Foundation supporting the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, among other great wonderful of charity. As a reader I find her devotion to literacy admirable.

I’ve noticed that a lot of women enjoy dramatic earrings & Dolly is no exception to this general trend. Due to this I have chosen to mostly focus this wishlist on earrings, though I did through in a few necklaces that also remind me of her elegant style. All items were found while browsing the selection available through Billy the Tree.

Magnificent Monday: Jessica Steen

Magnificent Monday

This particular actress has been in quite a few series that I have avidly watched at various points in my life. I think I first noticed her in Earth 2, though there was much ridiculous in the series (I thought so when I was younger too), it did make me consider other possibilities (though the specific logic was impossible to really follow with some of the things). Jessica was also in several episodes of The Outer Limits, the revamp that came out in the 90s & that was a series I enjoyed a lot in my teen years. More recently she’s been in Flashpoint & NCIS, also series I really like. Like so many others, she does her fair share of charity work as well, she is especially known as an environmentalist & animal rights supporter.

Most often her jewelry stylings are that of simple elegance, but she also has occasion to don dramatic flairs. Naturally, the little wishlist that I have compiled is based on these observations. 😉 I found all of these lovely baubles whilst browsing the wonderful selection available from Billy the Tree (currently having a sale too, until January 31, 15% off when you use code: HOLIDAY15 at checkout).

Magnificent Monday: Judith O’Dea

Magnificent Monday

Well, Halloween is finally here! So I thought it would be nice to honor a star of one of my all time favorite movies. Judith played Barbara in Night of the Living Dead, an amazing picture that’s still has a massive creepy factor to this day. I’ve seen it like a bajillion times, it’s my go to movie during net downtime & I even keep a copy on my phone (shockingly, it’s public domain), because you just never know when you might need to kill a little over an hour watching all the characters die. I should really focus more on the woman being honored, but I have to mention a noteworthy point about Night of the Living Dead, the character that lives until the end of the movie is African American. He’s also one of the take charge characters & the idiot that keeps trying to take over never once uses his ethnicity as a reason. Realizing that is pretty amazing considering the movie was made in 1968. O’Dea’s character wasn’t particularly strong, but then she had just witnessed the death of her brother, the world was ending & the whole movie takes place in less than 16 hours of the character’s life.

Judith, she always looks so sophisticated & she seems to enjoy simple chains. Of course, her style is not limited to chains, but there is something so elegant & classic about them I decided to focus on them exclusively for today’s showcase. Everything in today’s list was found while browsing Amazon.

Magnificent Monday: Jada Smith

Magnificent Monday

With Halloween upcoming I thought I would honor a woman who stared in one of my favorite (I have a lot of faves in this genre, LOL) horror movies. In ’95 Tales from the Crypt released their first feature length film Demon Knight, which became one of the rare movies I’ve gone out of my way to see on the big screen. Jada’s character was amazing as she defeated the most suave demon to ever grace the silver screen. Lately she’s been playing the terrifying role of Fish Mooney on Gotham, which is a series I follow faithfully (believe me, no matter what happens, Fish isn’t gone). She’s also been involved with numerous charities, even creating the Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation with her husband that focuses on inner city youth & their families.

jada-smith

Ever stylish & beautiful, I’ve chosen to mostly focus on her tasteful earring choices. Ear drama seems fairly common among many of the women I look up to & I certainly don’t mind indulging this fashionable accessory choice with an occasional earring centered wish list. 😉 All of the pieces in today’s post were found at Pink Basis & are well worth checking out. 😀

Magnificent Monday: Yunjin Kim

Magnificent Monday

Perhaps best known for her role as Sun Kwon in the notable series Lost & more recently on Mistresses, she is an exceptional actress with numerous roles under her belt. Yunjin is also amazingly beautiful & one of the celebrities that believes in giving back. In 2012 she was a promotion ambassador for ChildFund & in 2015 she promised to donate $12,000 to the Korean branch when her movie Ode to My Father hit 12 million ticket sales. She followed through on that promise & while it may not be a huge donation, I assure you that the money will be put to good use & that particular charity has a great reputation for the majority of the money going to the children rather than overhead.

yunjin-kim(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

She seems to almost have an aversion to necklaces while her earring choices are sometimes bold & always elegant. Yunjin also appears to enjoy bracelets & statement rings. So with all of that in mind I compiled a small wishlist from Jolly Chic (yeah, I did that shop last week too, but I’m a bit random, lol) that inspire thoughts of her style.

Magnificent Monday: Lucy Liu

Magnificent Monday

The mighty Lucy Liu, who has been in the spotlight now for a while now. Back in the ’90s she had numerous appearances throughout a variety of popular shows that I watched including (but not limited to) Hercules the Legendary Journeys, NYPD Blue & ER. Can’t forget her role in Shanghai Noon (not really the ’90s, but a hilarious adventure nonetheless) either, LOL. She has also supported a variety of charities such as those that fund research for breast cancer, UNICEF, marriage equality & the ongoing battle against vitamin & mineral malnutrition & iron deficiency anemia in infants & children in the developing world (omg that was a mouth full, or maybe keyboard full, lol). She even had her own personal battle against breast cancer, undergoing the knife for it in 2011. Sure, it turned out to be benign, but there was still the psychological impact of the diagnosis & the fact that she underwent a dangerous operation for removal of the growth (all surgeries are dangerous, seriously, read the consent forms for such procedures).

luci-liu(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

Ever beautiful, Liu seems to have a special attraction to cute earrings & is generally upbeat & stylish with her other other selections. Today’s wishlist comes from Jolly Chic, which has a lot of style for less than you’re likely to pay at many other places. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Sandra Oh

Magnificent Monday

Perhaps best known for her role as Dr. Christina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy, she had numerous appearances in a variety of popular shows prior to that character. While in high school she founded an environmental club, but I am a little uncertain of her environmental activities since then. It is possible, even likely, that she contributes to environmental charities, as many of us do, without any thought of recognition for the activity.

sandra-oh(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

Sandra has elegant taste in jewelry & I looked around for a variety of items to fit into my interpretation of her style. I found some earrings, necklaces & bracelets at Billy the Tree that remind me of her. This simple wishlist is definitely one I will be referring to in the near future for my own acquisitions, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Miiko Taka

Magnificent Monday

In my youth I read Shogun, which sparked an early fascination with the Japanese culture. Later I discovered the mini-series, which was amazingly true to the books. Kiri-san was played by Miiko Taka, who may not have been in many productions, but she still had a large impact on early me. As a Japanese American living through WWII, she & her family suffered through the indignity of a relocation camp for the duration of the war. Far too many have gone through the fear & uncertainty associated with forced relocation.

miiko-taka(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

While her taste in earrings is beautiful, I’ve decided to focus more on Asian style hair pins. Not that I have seen many images of her, outside of movies, when she is using them, but I believe this is the first Asian I have honored on a Magnificent Monday, so I am going with more of a cultural item. Today’s selections were found at Amazon.com & I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed finding them. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Lark Voorhies

Magnificent Monday

One of the most popular shows of my youth, Saved by the Bell, really put Lark on my radar. Her character, Lisa, was ever stylish & super shopaholic, lol. I was a little surprised to find that this almost generation defining show (I find it amusing when I notice my nieces watching it on Netflix) actually began as Good Morning, Miss Bliss of the Disney Channel for a single season. I have not seen this first & was totally unaware of it’s existence as my family rarely had cable access in my early years. Luckily NBC purchased the series & continued it for several seasons. Since this time Voorhies has fallen away from the public eye to a great extent though she has published 3 books in that time. She always seemed so glamorous to me as a child so I thought she would be a great inclusion on Magnificent Monday. 🙂

Lark Voorhies

She appears to enjoy dramatic earring choices with some rather lovely statement necklaces. Not that her selections are limited to these simple observations, but I have chosen to focus on them. I compiled a small wishlist from Chicnova with some beautiful pieces that remind me of her style. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Dionne Warwick

Magnificent Monday

Ever elegant Dionne can’t help but inspire others in their pursuit of finer qualities. I first noticed her when I was a small child & her voice became instantly recognizable to me. She has dabbled in acting as well, having numerous appearances throughout various popular shows, including an episode of Captain Planet in which she voice acted (I love that show, especially when I was younger, but still to this day). She is another icon who enjoys charity work, back in the day she created the Warwick Foundation which worked for those suffering from AIDS & while it’s history is not without some controversy I must point out that numerous, legally existing charities work with higher overhead & often contribute nothing to the cause they claim to promote while her foundation did give money to the cause they represented. The Warwick Foundation was later dissolved, perhaps due to the headaches caused by claims of impropriety despite them being dismissed by government after their investigation. She has also contributed all of her share of royalties from the song Starlight to the Starlight Children’s Foundation. In 2002 she was nominated Goodwill Ambassador of the Food & Agriculture Organization of the UN as well.

Dionne Warwick(Photos courtesy of Google image search)

She is so regal & her style so tasteful Dionne always appears so noble. I’ve chosen to mostly focus on her beautiful taste in necklaces & threw in a few bracelets in my window shopping list. Everything in today’s selections come from Billy the Tree, where there is always an excellent selection (I know I adore the pieces I have thus far been able to gather from their site).
