I don’t know about you, but once the weather gets chilly, I immediately start to think about the holidays. The month of October always flies by and then, sure enough, it’s Thanksgiving. Then, of course, what is next but some serious gift-giving holidays. Personally, when I find myself shopping for gifts, I tend to end up using the time for some (usually well-deserved!) retail therapy!
Oniochalasia - this is the actual term for retail therapy (yes, there is a word). I feel validated knowing that this is an actual thing and not just a mythical act that generations of savvy shoppers have dreamed up. Knowing this makes it feel more...okay, right? But, seriously, what better time to have some “therapy sessions” than around the holidays. And what better way to get those holiday party outfits to be just right than to accessorize them with some fantastic accessories!
I love the new Rain Jewelry Collection Holiday Style guide because it contains some really great pieces. Black dresses are my go-to for parties and I always enjoy a piece of jewelry that stands out nicely against or next to black. I love the SILVER DRUZY TEARDROP EARRING for times when I don’t want to wear a statement necklace. This earring stands out with just the right amount of sparkle. The way these earrings dangle with every move - therapy right there, my friends. Another great holiday piece that will surely win over any shopper in search of a fix is the MULTICOLORED BLACK WIRE NECKLACE SET - earrings and a necklace! I love this as it’s festive for the holidays, but can be worn with many different colors all year round.
Another reason why I love a little bit of retail therapy thrown into my holiday shopping is that it gives me a chance to visualize how I can wear different pieces with the same outfit. As a creative person, I love to express myself through what I wear; jewelry is a great way to maximize my wardrobe because I can change my outfits with a simple (or not so simple) piece! I could even wear the same dress to every holiday party I go to (if I so dared!) and just switch out my tear drop earring for the GOLD SQUARE LONG FRINGE EARRING .
The bottom line here is that a little retail therapy during the busy holiday shopping season is never a bad idea. Just make sure you don’t forget to get everyone on your list their special something(s). I know, for the important ladies in my life, I will be doing most of my shopping at Rain Jewelry Collection. Just like Aunt Joanne says, “fit and finish!”
