Rebecca Minkoff Mint Spikey Studs Chain Wallet

Rebecca Minkoff Mint Spikey Studs Chain Wallet

As I mentioned a few days ago, Mallory and I are attending Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball tonight with our friends at Skype, so naturally all that’s been on my mind is what studded, chained, and other ridiculously awesome accessories I’m going to wear to the show. If I owned this Rebecca Minkoff studded chain wallet, it’d definitely be a part of my outfit. Mint seemed to be the color of spring and everyone’s pastel of choice for the last three years, and I’m admittedly still obsessed. This piece is dainty yet fierce, kind of like me, so I just have to have it!

Tory Burch Black Clover Logo Earrings

Tory Burch Black Clover Logo Earrings

Who doesn’t love a nice pair of studs? Even for those of you who might find Tory Burch a little gaudy, you have to admit these clover post earrings are pretty darn cute. I love the glossy black enamel on gold combo, which are just the right amount flashy and bold. While they are understated, just don’t wear them with every other piece of TB you own.

Z Spoke ZAC POSEN Get Happy Studded Clutch

Z Spoke ZAC POSEN Get Happy Studded Clutch

A oversized clutch in purple with spike details… does this have Mallory written all over it or what?! A lot of girls give up on clutches for the winter season, but I think that’s totally crazy. I love pairing my bulky holiday outfits and jackets with a sleek clutch, and this Z Spoke number is definitely on the top of my Christmas list!

Jeffrey Campbell Hunter Stud Boot

Jeffrey Campbell Hunter Stud Boot

The weather here doesn’t exactly adhere to what the position of the sun tells our section of the hemisphere to do during those things we call “seasons.” Summer in San Francisco is a bit like fall, so fall boots are already on my brain. These Jeffrey Campbell boots are a Free People exclusive style and I’m going to find it hard to pass these bad boys up.  The Hunter Stud Boot features an exaggerated tongue, oversized buckles, and huge flaps that are entirely stud-encrusted. What’s even cooler is these boots are actually studded by-hand, so I’d imagine each pair is slightly unique. I love the look of these edgy boots – they’re that attention-grabbing piece you’ll be glad you bought as they were released as limited edition.

Red Velvet Cupcake Studs by PetitPlat

Red Velvet Cupcake Studs by PetitPlat

Times are tough, and while I love shopping at large department stores for the great reward and loyalty programs to benefit myself, I also love supporting independent designers and craft makers where my purchase really benefits the artist behind it. Next to fashion, one of my other passions in life is food, so naturally I had to share these adorable handmade studs I came across, made after one of my favorite sweet treats; the red velvet cupcake! These molded polymer clay studs are itty bitty at just 1cm tall, fixed on a surgical steel post, and are perfectly discreet if you want to rep your love of sweets but not look too childish at your day job (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). Be sure to check out all of PetitPlat’s tasty-looking creations on Etsy, since they have created petite accessories in every confection and food you could desire. Tarts, croissants, and cupcakes, oh my!

Jeffrey Campbell Spiked Lita Platform Boots

Jeffrey Campbell Spiked Lita Platform Boots

The fashion community has quite the love-hate relationship with Litas, but the spiked version of Jeffrey Campbell’s iconic shoe is something we can’t keep quiet about. Taking the familiar shape of the Lita and blasting it with a powerdrill and finally plugging up with a handful of spikes and studs, this is something the crafty Chelsea would like to think she could DIY on her own, but this shoe is already perfect so why even bother? These platform lace-up boots are loud, proud and make quite the statement. More than Litas not being for everyone, the studded style is certainly not for the faint of heart. But if you like these, be sure to check out the pump version by Sam Edelman as well. Hands down, this is definitely a great statement shoe to have in your collection for many years and occasions to come.

Sam Edelman Roza Leather Pumps

Sam Edelman Roza Leather Pumps

Now here’s a fierce shoe for your Friday, although if you haven’t already seen and drooled over these pumps from Sam Edelman, I’d have to ask what kind of stone it is you’re living under. While they aren’t as extravagant as Christian Louboutin’s version (these, these or these), the backside and heel of the Roza is equally as dazzling, heavily encrusted in spikes, sparkles and studs. This is a statement shoe with a sort of mullet approach – business in the front, party in the back. Wear these pumps with a mini LBD or LWD, or peeking out below skinny jeans or leggings. Dress up with other heavy metal or leather accessories for a sexy biker look, or to channel your inner dom, either way we won’t judge. Whatever you do, just pick these up while they’re still available!
