Pandora - The Latest Craze in Jewelry. Yes, Really!

Ssshh... Here's my latest fashion tip for you. Mykonos - a boutique in Glen Mills has a shop-in-shop store for Pandora jewelry! Yes, we kid you not. Nice, right? Apparently this jewelry is right up there with UGGS and SillyBandz when it comes to fashion trends. Did you know this? Pandora - a Danish brand - is best known for these charm bracelets. Shoppers like them because they are able to personalize them with of charms and beads symbolic of good feelings: love, peace, friendship and happiness. And since an average bracelet costs about $60, the sterling silver pieces are reasonably priced. (Although depending on the charms, some have paid up to $600 for them.) Funny, low prices haven't stopped a major knock-off craze, but what do you expect from fashion? You know the real ones because each charm and bracelet are in scripted with ALE-925. (ALE for Pandora and 925 for sterling silver.) Personally, I'm into the symbolic jewelry trend. It's nice to have something around your neck - or this case your wrist - that's more about positive life experiences than luxury. Last year, I bought my first Me&Ro necklace with the charms faith, charity and hope. I wear it every day. Are you into the Pandora jewelry craze?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
