I've been enjoying my "Out to Sea Lapis" Ringly so much, I purposely put together this outfit to match my ring:
1. Residual Trend: Lace-up neckline.
Yet, last summer another aunt from Canada came to visit me, and gifted this Katherine Barclay chiffon lace-up tunic (worn above). Upon blog photo inspection, it's not too bad. The lace-up details do give a visual pizzazz like a necklace. Verdict: lace-up tops are not for life, but more for editorial and attention-grabbing purposes.
2. Outgrown Item: This is probably the last time I'll wear my gold sequin mini skirt. Oh how I remember the glory days of the J.Crew City Mini (2011-2013, as seen here, here, and here.) Suddenly, this style seems too young for me now, much better suited for someone in their twenties or younger. Maybe my days of mini skirts are over?
3. Quick Review: Ringly Out to Sea Lapis ring. Continuing my rave on this! The size 6 fits well on my middle and index fingers (maybe a tad loose, but makes it easy to slip on and off). My workplace doesn't allow employees to put cell phones visible on our desks, so I tend to miss personal calls with my iPhone inside my purse on silent/vibrator. When I'm off from work, I always forget to turn the ringer back on, missing further calls. Thus, this Ringly has been useful in alerting me of incoming calls in an incognito way.
Overall, this Ringly makes me feel like a real life wizard or a 007 secret-agent, as it warns me of incoming calls/text (or anything I want to be alerted on from my iPhone). It also doubles as a pedometer. A few qualms with this ring is that it is a bit bulky, especially for a person who does not normally wear costume jewelry. The ring metal and stone gets scratched easily, so be gentle with it. The "connection taps" can be annoying as the blue light flashes every time I move my hand actively (like when pulling clothes from a rack while shopping). Luckily, you can turn off the connection taps from the Ringly app settings to resolve that problem. Even though it is pricey (almost $200), it's worth the splurge if you are into this kind of geeky jewelry. I will definitely buy again, especially if they make more unique designs or the main stone glows like magic when sending alerts (hint!)
