Suzy Levian Floral Eternity Band: (Review by Susan Courter, 9 June 2018)

If you’re looking to #MatchMegsStyle Birks Iconic Stackable Ring first worn in Edinburgh, this is the perfect piece to add to your jewelry box. Officially called the Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Floral Eternity Band by Suzy Levian (there’s a mouthful!), this ring is even prettier in person than what is shown online. I ordered the ring in the pink color to match Meghan’s rose gold ring. I received my ring within days of placing the order and was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package. The piece is of good quality and solid weight; it doesn’t feel or look “cheap” in any way. The CZ stones really sparkle and shimmer in the sunlight light, more than I expected. A note about sizing: to be safe I ordered both a size 7-1/2 and an 8 and ended up needing the bigger size. If you are an ‘in-between size’ or waffling between two sizes, I would strongly recommend ordering the larger size. The ring is offered at Bluefly.com for $55 USD; at Overstock.com for $64.49 USD; and also at Walmart for $52.50 USD

Birdie’s Slippers: (Review by Susan Courter, 8 May 2018)

I own a couple of pairs of Birdie’s Slippers and just love them. The brand has been a favorite of Meghan’s for several years. She owns the Blackbird style*, a pair I also have. The brand is known for the comfort of its classic quilted footbed, a ‘7-layer Responsive Cushion Technology’ that customers rave about. The slippers also have “elevating arch support, pressure-reducing heel cookie and no-slip rubber sole.” The Blackbird style is topped with an elegant calf-hair upper in black; it is a very sleek, elegant look. The slippers fit true to size and they are super-comfortable, I *love* wearing them. They retail at $140, which is what I paid; I can’t recommend them enough.

NOTE*: The Birdies ‘Blackbird’ style was replaced in the Fall 2018 with a newer version, The Starling, in velvet, $120.

BaubleBar ‘Peacemaker’ Ring (Review by Susan Courter, April 2018)

I have always loved trying various styles and trends. However, I find the most fun to be with accessories.  It’s no news that accessories play the starring role in transforming any outfit. Taking that simple outfit and turning it up a notch simply by swapping out a small pair of earrings to a fun sequin tassel earring. Who doesn’t love a great statement collar necklace with the glass crystal pieces to wear with a cocktail dress and yet can be worn with that simple tee shirt or sweater to completely change the look – so versatile!

I was surprised and delighted when BaubleBar reached out to me about the Peacemaker ring that Meghan wore back in 2015 and offered to send me a complimentary ring for a review. In the past year, I have purchased a few items from BaubleBar and have been happy with each item. The Peacemaker ring was something I had been looking at recently.

I received the ring earlier this week and was really excited upon opening the box. BaubleBar does an excellent presentation job when shipping anything – tissue paper, cute writing on the inside lid, things that make you smile.

The ring is just so pretty in person! The photos online do not do this ring any justice! Even the photos of Meghan wearing it (sorry Megs, I love you dear, and all your-foggy-smartphone-Insta-trendy-super-cute-photos but some things need to be really SEEN!)

You can wear the ring on either your first and middle finger or middle and ring fingers together as it’s a two finger wrap-ring. The longer leaf part extends about two inches onto the back of the hand. It is more of a ring you would wear for a party, wedding or a night out. It is different and stunning on. Even as I type this and look at the ring, I love the way it looks. I am looking forward to wearing this to the next party I go to or a night out and having it be a conversation piece – as I’m sure it will spark some compliments.

NOTE: A complimentary ring was supplied by BaubleBar. Review written by Susan Courter.
