Bringing it home, every other week

30 Aug

 

Did you know I Bring it Home every other week on CamilleStyles? If you don’t know, now you know – cue Notorious BIG. If you’re missing me you can always find me there every other Monday. I know things have been quiet, ok silent, on Fuji Files this month, due to the unprecedented amount of travel, work and fun – and a cool combination of the three – I’ve been having off of the blog. (Remember that blogging vs. living post?) I went to Newark to be with family, Dallas and Vegas for work, Washington State to escape the heat, and just in case that wasn’t enough excitement for one month – I also moved. 
As you can imagine I’m looking forward to the long weekend, but the 200mph pace continues. Tonight M arrives for a visit and we have a packed schedule which includes food – so much food – sun, water, and a blast from my giddy pre-teen past: the Backstreet Boys. I also have an exciting post that I’m working on coming very soon, with a brand spanking new contributor who you’ll be seeing more of on the blog. 
Have any fun plans for the holiday weekend? Anyone else seeing BSB?!
Bon week-end!

In the Details:: OOTD with ONecklace

1 Aug
For today’s outfit post I wanted to focus on the details. The tassels on my (borrowed) boots, the criss crossed back of my summer dress, and my most worn pieces of the summer: my necklaces. The top necklace is of a tiny pave hamsa hand, but I’ve had friends mistake it for a corn on the cob so yunno, eye of the beholder and such. It’s so tiny actually that I lost this necklace for a couple months, and when I found it in a pocket I was beyond thrilled and haven’t taken it off since. The bottom necklace is new this summer, and likewise I haven’t taken it off since I received it. I think we’re all familiar with the Carrie element of this necklace. 
Pieces with a moniker or monogram are a fun way to add personal meaning to your look. It’s kind of like how people say “if I get a tattoo I want it to have meaning.”*  This necklace is kind of like that, except, less permanent. 
Not only is this my last name, it is also my nickname from a special friend of mine, so Cleveland is totally apropos. If you’d like your own version of The Cleveland, but with your name, of course, this one’s 24 karat gold plated and surprisingly good quality. Many thanks to ONecklace for sending this little nugget to be a part of my collection! You know how I love my layered necklaces.

*Why do people always utter this phrase in a proud tone? As if all who’ve gone before them had said “I’ll have a tattoo please, no meaning thanks.”
