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).

2) Women’s Metal Cluster Neck with Feather ($7.48)
3) Women’s Necklace Pendant with Double Teardrop Castings and Stone ($8.48)

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)

8) Vintage Luxe Faux Pearl Chain Necklace ($16.99)
9) 925 Sterling Silver Freshwater Pearl Dangle Earrings ($19.99)

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.

Meryl Streep(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

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)

Magnificent Monday: Shakira

Magnificent Monday

This stylish icon has been around for a while, but how much do you really know about her? She comes from a large family with 8 older siblings, while they do come from her father’s previous marriage I loath to use the term “half sibling” (I too come from a large family & while we do not all share the same father, they are wholly my siblings). An early starter, she wrote her first poem at the age of 4, showing herself to be a prodigy. Shakira’s career began when she was an early teen, 2 albums (Magia & Peligro) were released during that time, but have since been (using comic book terminology here) retconned out of her current cannon. She has gone on to become a huge international success, with just one example, her song Hips Don’t Lie hit number 1 status in 55 countries! Her beauty, talent & generosity are really the stuff of legend. Giving to numerous charities that cover a wide variety of causes, her chief crusade centers on the well being & future of children & she is the founder of Pies Descalzos (which works with schools to improve conditions, scholastics, nutrition & community support for the children of Colombia).

Her style & presentation is glamorous, though often spartan where jewelry is concerned. She does enjoy her dangle earrings, with occasional other bits, like rings & bracelets & sporadic statement pieces. Naturally, I took some inspiration from her fashion sense & found some jewelry picks that are reminiscent of her style without outright copying it. This time I found my wishlist at Walmart & I believe they have some rather lovely treasures at this time. ❤

Shakira Inspired1) Tazza Women’s Silver Teardrop Crysal Earrings ($4.80)
2) Diamond Accent Rhodium Over Brass Marquise Shape Fashion Earring ($10)
3) Pori Jewelers Sterling Silver Drop Earrings ($10.76)
4) Sterling Silver Geometric Triangle Eurowire Drop Earrings ($10.77)
5) Roman High-polished Silvertone Metal Filigree Dangle Earrings ($12.79)
6) Gold Plated Pink Leather Medallion Chain Drop Statement Necklace ($13.37)
7) Pori Jewelers Sterling Silver Swirl 8mm Ball Drop Earrings ($13.51)
8) Sterling Silver Statement Necklace with Swarovski Crystals ($24.88)

Magnificent Monday: Sheryl Crow

Magnificent Monday

Very few haven’t heard of this talented singer, song writer, but did you know that she has also been an elementary music teacher? Can you imagine growing up to realize that your music teacher went on to become a star in the industry? She hit the scene in ’93 & since has gone on to make hits in a variety of genres, she’s done pop, rock, folk, blues & country. She is also a breast cancer survivor & has regular checkups relating to a diagnosis of meningioma (which is benign, but must be monitored). Since she has become rather outspoken about cancer, in addition to her numerous other charity works with a wide array of causes. Sheryl is also a proud & devoted mother, having adopted 2 sons (whose birthdays are practically shared, being 3 years and a single day apart, lol).

sheryl-crow(Pics courtesy of Google image search)

Her style runs from practical to flamboyant, but is always charming. It seems pretty rare (perhaps even never) to see her wearing a necklace, but she does seem to enjoy earrings, bracelets & rings. While only a few of the items I found for today’s wishlist remind me more directly of her style, I just had a little fun with the three main jewelry types she frequently wears. Everything in today’s collection was found on Walmart.com & some may be on clearance so I expect there to be limited numbers.

2) Steel Art Stainless Steel Rose Ring ($10)
3) 18kt White Gold-Tone Heart Ring ($10.79)
