In my former life, I was all about accessorizing - rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces - I wore it all (but my favorite was a nice big chunky ring). And, of course, it all went along with a great outfit. In my current life, if I'm wearing clothes that aren't pajamas or that don't strongly resemble them, it's a good day. A really good day. And accessories? That's best day ever status right there.
I very rarely, if ever, accessorize anymore. It's not that I don't want to, it's mostly that I just don't make the time to shop for myself. When I do try I end up putting all 5,000 items that I selected back and instead buy my son something he needs or doesn't really need at all but I tell myself that he does (usually it's the latter). With so many options, it's just way too easy to talk myself out of treating myself. I need an easy option for selecting accessories and it's best if there's no kid stuff in sight to distract me!

7 Charming Sisters is exactly that - accessorizing made easy! Don't get me wrong there is a massive selection but the company and website is designed in such a way that you don't feel overwhelmed by the many options. There are 7 (charming) sisters with 7 different styles (Life of the Party, Fashionista, Sexy Nerd, All American Girl, Social Butterfly, The Executive & Super Mom). When you visit the website, you can take a fun quiz to determine which sister matches your style. Then you can go shopping!
Of course, there are options to shop by accessory type, color and material (or you can browse through any style you want) but if you are looking for something super easy without too many options, then sticking with your style is a great way to go!
I really love the pieces I got from 7 Charming Sisters, a long geometric chain necklace (perfect for winter sweaters) and a crystal spiral champagne ring (probably too fancy for my pajamas but I don't care). I was very happy with the quality of the jewelry. Though, my son is past the sucking on everything in sight stage he is right in the middle of the tiny hulk stage. I need jewelry that isn't going to break into a million pieces should he give it a good yank. While I haven't been willing to go too far into testing it out, the necklace is definitely durable.
Make sure you visit the 7 Charming Sisters website and take the quiz. Let me know your style in the comments or you can Tweet me (#styledinasnap).
