Everybody must get stoned & TAG!

Today's Couture Carrie post is about rock, in 2 ways: stones on clothes and accessories AND the fun music tag I recently got from both Marta and Bostonista . See below!
We begin with stone-decorated dresses, from conservative ladylike luxe to beachy chic.
At left, Alberta Ferretti felt dress with stone detail, at Neiman Marcus.

Of course, accessories were rocked as well!

"Gaud" was in the details at Missoni. See the brilliant runway looks at left, where stones embellished everything from necklaces to belts.

Isharya Kadamba square bangle, also at net-a-porter.

Fave footwear choices, both practical and glamorous?

The rules: List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.
1. Gift of Gab - Way of the Light
2. Simon & Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy in New York
3. Finger Eleven - One Thing
4. Maroon 5 - Secret
5. Ne-Yo - Because of You
6. Steve Winwood - Higher Love
7. Ugly Duckling - Get on This
I'm Tagging:
This is quite an enjoyable tag (many thanks to the lovely Marta and the stylish Bostonista!), and I know many of the above-named bloggers adore the tunes, as these fashionistas include music in their daily posts - check all of them out!

I love the rocks! My fave is the net-a-porter ring...but I don't even want to check out the website cause I'll have a heart attack when I see the price!

By the way, I love stones. My mom gets crazy because everytime we go to the beach I always pick up some of those beautiful little white stones, you know? I love them.

Syed said...

Sinead said...

Oh, I love those embellished sandals, and the neck piece.
I also love stones on dresses!

Seeker said...

Yes, your post really "rocks" :)
Great stuff.

Couture Carrie said...

Fashion Peeps! I am totally grinning from ear to ear as I read your thoughtful, educated and enthusiastic comments!
First, thanks to both Fashion Chalet and Runaway Gallery for noting the derivation of the title - I meant to credit Mr. Dylan!!
Fashion Dreamer - I feel you on the NAP prices, but they are actually having an AWEsome sale right now. Indulge, you deserve it!
Clothes Horse: Good eye, as ever!
Razzzmatazz: Welcome back! P.S. I miss the beach!
Dapper Kid & Sinead - Aren't stoned sandals a "trip"?
Seeker - LOL!!! (that is the first time I have ever used that shorthand, I swear).
Cheers and many thanks to all; you are the best in the business!! xoxox CC

Wow, I love all of the clutches (although I would never buy something made out of crocodile skin; not that I could afford it anyway but I don't get it, really).
