Ed Letter: Feb/Mar 2016

Now that we’re well into the new year, how many of us can say we’ve honestly kept up with our new year’s resolutions so far? I, myself, shied away from my usual “I’m going to eat healthier and exercise more!” dreams and instead, swore to try something much more fun: to experiment more with jewelry. Luckily, after partnering with Rocksbox as an #RBItGirl in December, it’s been easier than I ever thought.

In the past three months, I’ve received almost a dozen different pieces of jewelry to mix and match, including gorgeous, gold rope textured rings from Gorjana and a lovely crescent moon necklace from Jenny Bird, and I have yet to be disappointed. The Rocksbox stylists, who are in charge of analyzing my style profile and selecting jewelry they think would be perfect for me, have done a great job picking pieces with my taste in mind. They’ve even been kind enough to give us our own exclusive discount code for our Cliché readers! Use the code clichemagxoxo at checkout to receive your first month of Rocksbox totally free. But hurry, since it’s only available for a limited time. Give it a try today!

I’m not the only jewelry lover on the Cliché team, believe it or not. Our Fashion Director actually wrote her column this month about jewelry, too (pg. 25), and we gathered some of the coolest winter accessories you need to own, pronto (pg. 35). From totally glam necklaces to ear cuffs made for New York Fashion Week, you’ll be turning heads in no time.

Speaking of turning heads, it’s safe to say our two cover girls know a lot about that. It’s no secret that Alyson Stoner and Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei were made to be in the spotlight, both with their beautiful voices and sexy dance moves, and we were so fortunate to chat with them about their careers and plans for this year. Quickly, I discovered, as I’m sure many of you also will, that not only are these women crazy beautiful, but incredibly wise beyond their years, both giving advice I wanted to take and frame on my office wall. They are both great examples of Girl Bosses to me, and I’m so proud to have them on our cover. If you don’t find their words motivating, I’m not sure what is.

Now, time to do some #GirlBoss-ing of my own: like mapping out my calendar of New York Fashion Week shows I’m so excited for.

‘Til next time!
