It goes without saying that I’m a big fan of dressing up on game day. In my opinion, I have no excuse to EVER wear a jersey when I can rock a dress with accessories or another fabulous combo. I love this part of being a southern girl. You can look good, love the game, AND throw a kick ass tailgate party. So last fall, I asked the amazing ladies of Elva Fields to design me a custom piece of jewelry. I had my beautiful orange necklace with a blue brooch, and two other fabulously glam orange necklaces…but I was also looking for the opposite – a truly navy necklace w/ dark orange accents. Variety is the spice of life!
The elegant ladies of Elva put up with my picky requests, my rejection of the EXACT shade of Auburn orange brooch they found me (yes, it was absolutely Auburn burnt orange, not Texas burnt brown orange – do you know how hard that is to find? – but not the look I wanted on this necklace) and finally, months later… Game Day Gorgeous was created.
Game Day Gorgeous: Polished lapis lazuli with vintage orange celluloid and coral flower ornaments with gold vermeil and lapis clasp.
A side note: I was wearing a different Elva piece today and a co worker stopped me in mid sentence and said, “I normally don’t even notice a woman’s jewelry, but I have to tell you that necklace is GORGEOUS! I can’t stop looking at it.” I gave him the website so he could get his wife a present for her birthday. A few hours later, another co worker demanded I tell her where I got the same necklace after claiming she couldn’t focus on our conversation because she kept STARING at my necklace thinking, “PRETTY!!” Elva’s pieces are just plain AMAZING.
