Oscar Night Fashion Winners (and Losers)

So the biggest night of the year has come and gone. The much buzzed about Oscars had a lot of exciting moments. There were a lot of trends spotted, like the use of lots of blush, plunging necklines and white color scheme. Let's see the some of the most talked about stars and what they wore. 

I liked Anna Kendrick's dress peach Thakoon dress but it looked a bit like a prom dress, don't you think?

 Dakota Johnson hit the nail on the head with her red Saint Laurent gown with a touch of metallic beading on her shoulder. Fantastic.

 Listen if you want to be on the best dressed list- just choose an Elie Saab gown. You'll NEVER lose. Emma Stone was on the right path with this spectacular choice. (Not super crazy of the color of the gown though.)

 Felicity Jones wore a bespoke Alexander Mcqueen for her big night. The top of the dress is incredible however the bottom didn't do it for me.

 JLo can do no wrong especially in the Elie Saab fantastic-ness.

 Is Jessica Chastain trying to be Angelina Jolie's leg? Also her dress was a snooze-fest.

 Julianne Moore won for Best Actress for her work in Still Alice (so deserved) and she topped my best dressed list in her beaded Chanel gown.

 Is Lady gaga trying to hide her ring or promote her murder?

Lady Gaga later changed for her amazing tribute to the Sound of the Music. 

 Laura Dern looked AMAZING in Alberta Ferretti metallic dress; hands down the best of the night. She balanced her cool dress with simple hair.

 Lupita Nyong'o clearly didn't want to disappoint and went all out with an intricately beaded Calvin Klein dress. However, the sporty cut of the dress ruined it a bit for me.

 Margot Robbie went for a drapey Saint Laurent pair with bold red lips made a look I absolutely adored.

 Marion Cotillard ALWAYS wears Dior, so no surprise there. Her choice was a bit diaperesque? Didn't like it.

 Naomi Watts brings edgy to the Oscars and does it right! Love her 90's inspired print Armani dress. Classy but cool.

Rita Ora looked stunning, but I thought her too-light hair clashed with the gold in her dress. Also I'm over mermaid gown.

Sienna Miller where's your boho chic?? This Oscar de la Renta dress was just alright, I'm disappointed.

Can we suggest a really amazing good luck charm that just so happens to be our must have product of the week - Horseshoe Jewelry with Initial Charm!

Horseshoe Jewelry with Initial Charm
We are simply loving this horseshoe necklace with initial charm and birthstone accent

We love lucky charm jewelry because there is always a need to have good luck with you! But for some reason, we are drawn to the horseshoe pendant necklace. The meaning behind the horseshoe symbol is very interesting and explains so much why people see this simple object as one that brings luck. This necklace was also one of most popular lucky charm necklaces of 2014!

Must Have Product of the Week: Silver Monogrammed Ring

While name necklaces are our original passion, monogram jewelry is something we love! It is a huge trend that will not go away. We have seen many top celebrities rock a monogram accessory, including Taylor Swift, Lauren Conrad, and Rhianna. And while monogram necklaces are at the top of the popularity tree, we are loving other monogrammed accessories, mainly monogram rings!

Silver Monogrammed Ring
Our Silver Monogrammed Ring has us all excited around the office!

We love this monogram ring. We love how the letters look and how comfortable it fits. If you want a way to show off your monogram style, this is truly the best way to do it. Get any initials you would like on your monogram ring and then wear it with pride and happiness! We love monograms and you can show off how much you love them too!

Everyone Can Be President on President's Day!

It's that time of year again folks when we celebrate the presidents of the United States of America and everything they've done in the last 200+ years. It started off as just celebrating the birthday of George Washington but has become so much more!

And of course, what holiday isn't complete without an amazing sale!

MyNameNecklace Presidential Sale
While most of you in the northeast are stuck in doors due to snow, you can still take amazing advantage of some serious savings online!

Last year we posted the question would George Washington wear a name necklace? He could get one that says "GeorgieBoy" or maybe "FirstPrez." But now we wonder which president(s) would rock a POTUS name necklace. Wearing a flashy name necklace inscribed with POTUS while giving the official State of the Union address would definitely show off who's in charge here.

And no matter if you are POTUS, class president, or president of a fan club, it is time to celebrate this day in style - and that means an amazing selection of personalized jewelry at really amazing prices. So what are you waiting for? Check us out right now!

Who doesn't love a good sale!?

6 Date Ideas this Valentine's Day for Newbie Couples

New couples really feel the pressure on Valentine's Day. They haven't been together all that long BUT Valentine's Day is the day to share with your significant other, so there is some kind of expectation that you will do something. Here's the thing though - you don't want to be too fancy, but at the same token, you don't want to do nothing. That's okay, we have some great date ideas for new couples!

valentines day for new couples
If you are a new couple, how are you spending your Valentine's Day?

Take a Hike

Depending on where you are, it may be a great day to visit a local forest and check out the hiking trails. Pack a lunch filled with fun goodies. It is a great way to get to know one another, especially if you are both nature lovers.

Climb a Mountain...Sort Of

One of the hottest date trends is indoor mountain climbing. It allows you to see what each of you is made of, and because it is an exercise in trust you will both bond over the challenge of getting to the top. 

Have Fun at the Flea Market

Head on over to your local flea market and get lost in all the stalls of fun and wacky stuff. Try on vintage clothing, find out-of-date items, and see what treasures you can unearth. Set a monetary limit and buy the other a token to remember this fun day!

Skip Dinner and Go Straight for Dessert

Dinner can be very overwhelming, especially for new couples. So, skip the formality and just head to your favorite dessert spot to share a piece of cake. And then you don't need to worry about those pesky reservations!

Visit a Food Truck and Walk Around the City

Who doesn't love food trucks?! Find a food truck that you both can agree on, grab some grub, and take a walk around town. Point out things you both like, search around new corners you've never seen, and have a bit of fun. 

Be Entertained

You don't have to splurge on expensive concert tickets or the like. Instead, check out current exhibits at the museum, see if the local library is offering any free movie screenings, or head on over to an improv club or coffee house.

And if you need a Valentine's Day gift idea for your significant someone, we have all sorts of personalized jewelry options for you! No matter if you are a new couple or you've been together for ages, we have something for you!

Must Have Product of the Week: Handcuff Necklace in Silver

Unless you have been hiding under a rock the last few months, you know that there is some major anticipation regarding a 'little' movie coming out right before Valentine's Day - 50 Shades of Grey. Don't remember? Well, here is a refresher for you...

Everyone is interested to know just how much of the book is in this movie! Many cities are already sold out of tickets for all opening weekend screenings! All the girls here at MyNameNecklace are excited to go see the movie. So, to pay homage to a small book that made major headlines (and ended up snagging a major movie deal), our product of the week is our Handcuff Necklace in Sterling Silver!

Handcuff Necklace in Sterling Silver
No better way to show how connected you are to someone than a handcuff necklace with initials!
This is a really beautiful and fun necklace that is also available in 18k Gold Plating as well. If you love someone, hold onto them tight, just as you would with a pair of handcuffs!

Single and Spectacular: The Single Girl's Guide to Celebrating Valentine's Day

It is very easy to get frustrated and jealous once February 14th rolls around. All over Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter couples leaving lovey-dovey messages, posting cute photos, and being a bit of well....a toothache (it's all too damn sweet)! And if you are brave enough to venture out on your own, you will feel like the only person without a +1. And no one wants to hear you complain about being single on Valentine's Day. However, you don't need to have a significant other to enjoy this day of love. As long as you love yourself and have others in your life that love you (and are single too!), then you can still celebrate this amazing holiday full of hearts and flowers!

Being Single Quote
Make it All About You

Valentine's Day can be quite intimidating when you are on your own. But why sit and sulk when you can go out and pamper yourself. Make a reservation for a spa day. Get a mani-pedi. Spend some money from your rainy day fund and splurge on that monogram necklace you've been pining over. Order takeout from your favorite restaurant, open that bottle of wine that's been sitting, and watch your favorite chick flicks. When you feel good about yourself, the world looks so much brighter.

Get Out of Town with Your BFF

February 14th falls out on a weekend this year - so plan a weekend getaway with your (also single) BFF. Get a hotel in a big city for the weekend or go for a mini ski vacation. It is the perfect time to get away because tons of hotels and cabins are running Valentine's Day weekend deals. Just be sure to book quickly before all the rooms are taken.

valentines day chocolateMake it a Girl's Night In

Who said pajama parties are only for kids? Invite your best gals over, put on your comfy pj's, order pizza, buy some wine and ice cream, and have a girl's night in! Have a Sex and the City marathon and discuss who is a Carrie, who is a Samantha, and so on. (Are you a Carrie? Then you should totally get a Carrie Name Necklace!)

Take it to the Streets with Your Favorite Single Ladies

Don't want to spend the night in? Paint the town red with your single friends! Get dressed up to the nines and hit the city for a fun night of cocktails and dancing. You won't be alone when you go out, but with others celebrating right with you! And who knows, maybe you'll make a love connection!
