This week's video is on some suggestions I came up with that will hopefully make editing your wardrobe MUCH EASIER! I know it's a daunting task, BUT it HAS TO GET DONE! DON'T WORRY, this will definitely help make it easier and fun, I hope =)

In this week's video I give some simple tips I've learned that help in taking care of jewelry, either costume or authentic. I do not claim to be an expert in the jewel industry, these are tips that I've learned through personal experience and in having spoke to people I know who have extensive jewelry collections. I hope it helps you!
Here's what I mentioned:
1. Avoid wearing your jewelry when cleaning or applying lotion or creams
2. Don't apply perfume or hairspray while wearing jewelry. The alcohol can cause costume jewelry to tarnish faster and develop holes where bacteria can develop, which can lead to serious infections!
3. You can clean authentic jewelry with either rubbing alcohol, jewelry cleaner, or toothpaste. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL ON COSTUME, PEARL, OR OPAL JEWELRY!
4. Don't brush fine jewelry with bristles, as it can cause scratches; only brush stones.
5. A tip I forgot to mention was not to place costume jewelry too close together, since they oxidize and can cause each piece to tarnish faster.
Remember on Monday I mentioned that I was sick? Well, shortly after, I got even worse! I felt so terrible, I could barely speak, which is why I haven't been posting in between. I feel for the past few weeks, every time I would try to post for the entire week, something would always get in the way!!! Hopefully this is the end of that and we can continue on with our regular flow of things around here in the upcoming week.
Anyway, as the tittle of the post entails, I'm discussing how to style and wear fur coats. It's a piece that's fun to work with and can really add that wow factor to any look! But, I have realized, through my personal experience and having spoken to some of you, it can be a bit of a challenge when creating an outfit centered around it. In the video, I show you all the looks you see in the photo above and explain my suggestions when it comes to pairing ideas and styles for your body shape; I also briefly touch upon height! At the end of the video, I announce who my lucky subscriber is who won the Fevrie gift card giveaway! If you didn't win, you still have a chance to save on some of the pieces you've been eyeing, with an exclusive 40% off coupon code, which lasts until the end of the month (01/31), JALISASFILES.

I came up with four very different looks, for different events or holiday occasion(s). I trust that you'll find it inspirational and that you'd enjoy the snow in the background! Eddie and I were so excited about filming in the snow and we loved the way it turned out for the video, we hope you do, too!
