Naturally for a cool but hands on event like this the jewelry needed to be understated but still was a must. But what to wear? My outfit was preppy casual. I did wear jeans since I was going to do some of the workouts. But I wore a semi dressy top in a dusty blue. Now I wanted jewelry that was simple but funky to fit the casual jean look.
I chose to go with my silver plated goddess earrings and necklace set. You might remember I blogged about this design for my spring interpretation for the monthly merry-go-round assignment. I think I made a good choice. Sadly I didn't remember to get a close up photo during the event. I guess I was too busy have a good time and meeting people.
Speaking of meeting people... I met Jessica Smith of Jessica Knows, one of the challengers and one of my twitter friends on my personal twitter id. We struck up a very interesting conversation about fashion and styling.
This convo led her to introduce me to her personal stylist Debbie Wright of Project Closet, who then joined me in talk about using jewelry to enhance and dress up a simple everyday outfit. We both agreed the sometimes just adding a little touch... a pair of gold earrings or a simple chain does wonders for an outfit and adds a pick me up feeling. Who would have thought jewelry would be a topic at the EA SPORTS Active Launch. Goes to show you never know...
