We just launched our holiday shop, and among the many amazing items available are these touchscreen-compatible Echo Design mSoft Echo Touch™ Gloves.
As you all know, we’ve partnered with our blingy friends at BaubleBar for the Birchbox + BaubleBar 10K: the first 10,000 members to earn Birchbox Points will receive a BaubleBar Black Wood Pop Bracelet in their November box. Since we know you can’t get enough of beauty and baubles, all this week we’ll be pairing our favorite BaubleBar accessories with Birchbox products.Today’s theme: The Classics!
Even though it’s fun to try the newest trends (ie: color blocking), there’s a reason the classics are, well, classic. These tried and true jewelry staples pull a look together and have the power to elevate jeans and a white tee to a chic, street style-worthy ensemble. We love the way a stack of gold bangles draws attention to our wrist — this Matte Gold Stack with varying widths is modern and goes with virtually anything. Pair it with a small stud earring like these Gold Pebble Studs and you’re reading for the boardroom or the ballroom.
And in case you thought we forgot, classic doesn’t just apply to accessories. There are beauty products that we keep coming back to because they work in any situation. Visit Baublebar to find out more about their classic picks: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Moisturizer and Nuxe Multi-Usage Dry Oil.
Check back tomorrow at 3pm for another beauty and bauble pairing!
We asked some of our favorite female entrepreneurs, from Alexa von Tobel of LearnVest to Amanda Peyton of Message Party, to share the best beauty advice they got from their mothers. Check out what they had to say.

This week, we’re lucky enough to have the uber-talented Grace of Stripes and Sequins on board for a week of blogging fun. Yesterday she laid down the bright blush gauntlet; today she’s talking about matching makeup and accessories. Read on!
Let’s talk about matching. No, I’m not talking about that whole early nineties trend of coordinating your lips, nails, and clothing. I’m talking more about selecting accessories and cosmetics that properly compliment each other. A few of my favorite combos:
Crystals & Coral. I’ve got a little bit of a bling obsession. The sparklier, the better — Hence my love of all things DANNIJO and Bauble Bar, as well as J. Crew’s entire jewelry department. I’ve been known to pile on three or four sparkly bracelets at a time, and I’ve never met a statement necklace that I didn’t immediately covet.
My favorite sparkly piece of all is my pair of DANNIJO Mariela earrings. Nothing looks better with piles of bling than a orange-toned red lip. That’s where NARS lipstick in Heat Wave comes in. (Sidenote: This shade was also Jenna Lyons’ choice for the J. Crew Spring preview and catalog.) Just keep the rest of your look simple: A few coats of mascara, maybe a little bronzer… that’s all you need.
Turquoise & Tan. Can it please be summer already? I love a bronze glow, a coral lip — try Stila Lip Glaze in Tangerine — and a great piece of turquoise jewelry. This YSL ring and Kenneth Jay Lane earrings would complete the look perfectly.
Blushes & Nudes. Nothing looks sweeter for Spring than nude and blush-toned pieces paired with rose gold jewelry. I love these earrings from Bauble Bar, or this shirtdress from Topshop. Pair with a nice neutral nail like Deborah Lippmann Naked and a rosy cheek (check out yesterday’s post for some great recommendations).
