5 of 5 Must Have Accessories for Fall: The Leather Belt August 27, 2010

Filed under: fashion — Deb Johns @ 1:27 pm

To avoid nasty stains on your clothing from belting your favorite cashmere sweater with a cheap leather belt, purchase a versatile, timeless belt that you can count on for season after season. Look for one and half to two inch width that you can belt through your jean waistband or cinch over a jacket or sweater. Black or brown in pebble to croc textures or patent leather if you like a little shine. You won’t regret it, and you’ll always have it!

Update your shoe collection with higher styled and better constructed versions of loafers and ballet flats for the season. If you’re a walker, you know that the less constructed ballerinas fall off your feet in a matter of weeks, grab a shoe that will be stylish for the season and support your feet along the way.

3 of 5 Must Have Accessories for Fall: The Iconic Movie Star Bag August 25, 2010

Filed under: fashion — Deb Johns @ 9:42 am

Consider finding the perfect bag for Fall that is updated with a clever mixture of materials…quilted, leather, nylon, embossed,  perforated leather, patent leather, metallic washed, distressed leather, denim, or canvas. All refined with the addition of high polished studs, grommets, chains, and closures, look for molded handles, clever locks, structured bottoms, and refined details like topstitching, and cropped fringe.

2 of 5 Must Have Accessories for Fall: The Muffler August 24, 2010

Filed under: fashion — Deb Johns @ 12:07 pm

The Muffler can be worn inside or outside, for warmth or for fashion. The origin of the muffler comes from the French sitting at their drafty cafes and needing to warm their necks…but always looking chic.

Filed under: fashion — Deb Johns @ 1:29 pm

There are a lot of ways to update your look for Fall. Perhaps the most practical is to shop in your own closet, reinventing old favorites with new twists. The best bang for your buck comes from purchasing accessories that are on trend and add flair in unexpected ways. We want to recommend options that range from 10s to 100s, realizing that fashion trends begin at the top and the bottom and meet in the middle. There is something for everyone this Fall on those accessory racks.

Pendant Necklaces are number one on our list for Fall Accessories: anything from all metal, silver or gold to mixed mediums with gems, ribbons, feathers, cameos, and embossing…
