DIY Statement Necklace

3

Here at M&J we can’t get enough of our chunky chains. Rather than just wearing chunky acrylic chains, we’ve opted to incorporate one of our sleeker watch bands with a rustic pendant. By incorporating all three vibes you’ll be sure to wear this statement necklace all summer long.

Lace Street Style

Lace is one of the more versatile trims we sell at M&J. Black lace gives off a sexy sophistication while white lace often portrays beauty and innocence. The delicate trim can be paired with many fabrics to either play up or play down the beauty within each piece. We love how each of these street style starlets worked lace into their wardrobe. We can’t wait to recreate some of these looks using our M&J trims.

Here’s a special promo code just for you! Be sure to sign up for our M&J emails for even more promotions.
M&J TRIMMING PROMOTION: We are currently offering 10% off all lace from now until Friday June 8 2013 with the promo code LACE101 on our website.

Buttons may be one of the more underrated items that we sell at M&J. Many people overlook the beauty that buttons have. Here at M&J we have an entire store devoted to them. We’ve rounded up several Button DIY tutorials in order to show you some great ways of incorporating buttons into your wardrobe.  Both I Spy DIY and Crazy for Collars created beautiful bracelets while Glitter n Glue made ridiculously stylish rings. These buttons are simply too pretty so be hidden.
