You don’t need diamonds to shine bright, but a little sparkle certainly doesn’t hurt! Which is exactly what Shay Mitchell had in mind for her first — and very personal — BaubleBar collection.
“When my mom would get ready for work, she had so much [jewelry] that I’d just play around,” the Pretty Little Liars actress, 29, tells Us Weekly. “As I got older, looking at my grandmother’s collection that was passed down was so special. When you wear a piece like that, it adds to the story of your look.”
Those trinkets inspired the 26 styles she created as Guest Bartender; the capsule launches September 12 at baublebar.com. But when making the lineup — which includes a rhinestone-studded bib, gold bangles and bling with natural stones — she didn’t just think of her own tastes. “I took into consideration every type of person and designed a piece for everybody,” she says. “If this were just a collection for me, everything would have crystals on it!”
Then again, who doesn’t believe that more is more? “We all want a little more glitz in our lives,” the Amore & Vita blogger tells Us. “So why not just throw on a diamond choker with your everyday T-shirt and head off to the grocery store?”
