happy november! to celebrate of the beginning of this lovely fall month, we are honoring its birthstone, topaz. the yellow stone is autumnal warmth at its finest; a rich gold reminiscent of warm cognac, flickering candlelight, and crisp fall leaves. yellows and golds can seem courageous colors to sport; but whether in small doses, like a great accessory to play up simple jeans, or a full-on gold hued dress, the color is surprisingly easy to wear. with so many shades in that lovely topaz family, every girl is sure to find the right hue. it’s soft, warm, and feminine- it can even be worn as a surprisingly sexy neutral.
