Welcome to the dainty collection. This collection is all about simplicity and miniature details, with a focus on tiny beads paired with thin chain. Each piece includes a vintage treasure- from etched metals to brass leaves attached to crystals from an antique chandelier. The collection is extremely delicate, but intended to be mixed and matched, loved and adored.
One is one...Two is twenty! Nick and I are beyond excited to finally share our news. We found out I was pregnant again in late February and couldn't be happier! However, ever since then, I've experienced extreme morning sickness at all hours of the day. Which, has been the main reason I've been completely MIA from the blog and Instagram. But, I'm finally staring to feel like my old self and getting back into the swing of things. So be prepared for an overload of bump watch and maternity style.
Our next year is going to be full of changes. From building a new house to welcoming a new baby. We are up for the challenges and truly feel so fortunate to become parents again. Let the adventure begin when our little GIRL arrives in early November!!!

I spy a pretty blush quartz bar necklace among the floral! So I can't help but love a good floral romper. I'm especially loving this one because of the tie side detail. It gives it a little something extra and all the spring-ready feels. Pair it with your favorite moto (you better have one by now), heels, beaded choker, and don't forget a quartz bar necklace. Shop my look below..
For those of you asking, the fabulous bell sleeve dress I wore on CI Living is from Rachel Zoe Collection. I'm obsessed with the sweet lace detail and romantic style. Perfect for the upcoming season. I have to say, it fits true to size also, which never happens for me. I typically need a few inches removed from the bottom. My look is linked down below, with the exception of my statement necklace and shoes. If you've followed me for a while, you might remember the necklace from our baby announcement. It's one I can't seem to part with. My shoes are Steve Madden and from a couple seasons ago (but I still really really love them!).
Thank you to CI Living for inviting me to share my love of jewelry designing! It was truly an incredible experience. Heather was amazing! She was super easy to talk to, which completely helped ease my nerves. The team at CI Living did an excellent job covering the many aspects of Ameliorez! Also, a huge thank you to Shanae, my beautiful model (and best pre-interviewer). In case you missed it, I've added a direct link to the interveiw below.
Have I mentioned I'm all about a statement sleeve right now?! Bell, tiered, or ruffled, I don't care, I'll take it in every color! This top is great because it's also off shoulder (two of my favs in one!). Now, you have to be careful though. They say you should never wear more then three trends at one time. But that leaves room for a simple choker or Y necklace. Take your pick! Shop this look below..
Look what made it to the shop this week! New gold tone Y necklaces! EEEK! They are so modern and easy to wear with everything from chunky sweaters to your favorite statement sleeve top. The Y necklaces are made with white agate stone spikes, a vintage glass bead, and a filigree bead cap. You can't beat the price either, just $15!
With Valentine's Day around the corner, I can't help but add a few red accents to my weekly cycle. I recently came a crossed this darling embroidered tulle skirt and immediately knew it needed to come home with me. It combines two major trends- patches and embroidery. Be date night ready when you add a fitted jean shirt, chunky heels, circle purse, and statement necklace! Shop this look below.
New arrivals were just added to the "shop" page!! Make sure you snag a couple before they are gone! Also, I can't wait for you guys to see the new gray crystals and agate stones that just made it in my mailbox. So, so pretty! They are beyond perfect for spring!
So I can't decided if this look makes me think of spring or a tropical winter getaway. Either way, the bell sleeve dress (total steal at $14.99) and blush trench are two must haves! It's the perfect color combo to complement the mint choker and layered bar necklace. Keep in mind, statement sleeves and nude tones are two trends from 2016 that will continue into 2017 in a big way. Basically, you will start spotting them everywhere! Get the look first with the links below!
I'm still coming down from the excitement high I experienced over the weekend. Ameliorez jewelry can now be found at Plush Boutique in Charleston, IL!!! Plus, Plush was just featured on CI Living, a local entertainment news show. How amazing!! From the start, six years ago, my dream was to create unique jewelry for beautiful brick and mortar boutique stores. Now that goal is beginning to happen, one boutique at a time. Work hard dream bigger.
So I recently started working on my spring jewelry. I have so many new ideas and fun styles I'm excited to share with you. For spring, I'm creating a collection called "Metals". It really focuses on fringe chain, hence the name "Metals". I love the boho feel the fringe chain gives. It can be casual or fancy, depending on how it's styled. In my look above, I decided to go with a more casual vibe. I'm really into crop sweaters right now (if you can't tell). I love how they look boxy on top, to balance the fitted bottom. The booties simply keep the casualness going. In love! Get this look below.
Adding a little winter white to my wardrobe rotation with this adorable dress from PinkBlush. PinkBlush is my go-to trendy online boutique with an amazing selection of affordable dresses for women. This look features an off white shift dress with an embroidered design and metallic accents. This dress is super comfy and I'm obsessed with how it flows. Add a little edge with a leather jacket, chunky heels, and circle crossbody. PinkBlush also has tons of dresses that are perfect for those holiday parties or watching the ball drop on NYE! Now is the perfect time to shop PinkBlush.

With Christmas around the corner, I've rounded up a few of my favorites! I will definitely be adding these under the tree. Happy shopping!!
Don't say I didn't warn you, slip dresses are soon to be taking up lots of space in your closet. The trick is to think of it as a functional layering piece. Easy fix when you add a sweater, lace top, or long sleeves. Pile on the accessories to complement the slip dress simplicity. Lucky for you, I've included a few of my favorite slip dress, all at great prices!! Snag one while you can!
I've rounded up my short Christmas list (Ha!). In no order, kinda...a stylish camera case. I recently purchased a new lens for my camera and unfortunately, my previous camera case no longer fits. And why have a bulky, hideous camera case? Number two- new shooooooes! Because I'm always onto the next pair. But seriously, I've been searching for cute, reasonably priced, OTK beige boots. I'm pretty sure Steve Madden was reading my mind when he released this new pair. Number three- sunnies. Basically the same reason as new shoes. I have an obsession. I've added a couple of the most desired styles. No further explanation required. Number four- I realize I said no order, but this is probably my very most wanted item on the list...every finger is crossed. Seriously. THE CIRCLE BAG. It's the "IT" bag of the season. Every trendsetting girl is trying to get their hands on one. It comes in several different colors and two different price points. Personally, I'm loving the Rosa, Brandy, and Black. The Rosa is my favorite, but slightly more expensive. Hmmmm what will be under the tree?? I would love to hear what's on your Christmas list!!
So you might be all shopped out after the long weekend but who could forget about Cyber Monday!! So many amazing sales going on from Nordstrom 20% to ASOS 20%. I'm going to make it easy for you, just sit back in your pj's, with a cup of coffee and enjoy 20% off all of my jewelry. Use code "cybermonday" on my shop page and Etsy page (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Ameliorez?ref=shop_sugg). Be sure to check-out the new statement chokers and watch bracelets that were just listed. Enjoy!!
It's no secret that I love a well structured lace dress. Especially when you add long sleeves! I'm sold!! Aaaand this emerald green is nothing short of stunning! It's perfect for those holiday parties. Mix in a vintage beaded clutch, chandelier necklace and ankle boots for that perfect classic look.
