Accessories

What’s missing?

I’m always so curious as to finding out exactly what fashionistas like when it comes to accessorizing. I’m a true believer that just one accessory can liven up any outfit. Especially if it’a nude or tan dress, like the T-Bags mini-dress below, and the accessory is a much needed pop of color. But, that’s just me. I want to know what you think…(read below)I’ve chosen 6 random accessories below.If you could ONLY choose ONE, which item would you pair with the dress and why? I’m curious.More Emilio Pucci…

In a Cobalt Blue kind of Mood

Ever since I wore that blue dress to the Full Figured Fashion Week runway finale, I can’t get the color out of my head.Now, it’s not just any kind of blue, it’s more like cobalt blue. It can easily transition into the fall season and looks good on pretty much anyone. Don’t we love that?You know I’ve said it before, but adding an accessory in a bright color like this really stands out. And it’s easier to experiment with these bold colors, when it’s just a shoe or piece of jewelry.Just look at this Enigma Slide Sandal from Endless.com and BCBGMaxAzria Abstract Stone…

Casually…Red, White, and Blue

TRI this ANGLE with Jewelery

Rings at Max & ChloeNecklaces at Max & ChloeI’m always on the look out for different pieces of jewelery. Especially, different shapes. And I’ve kind of been leaning towards triangles. It’s something a little different and always interesting. There’s nothing like adding a little bit of shape to your necklace, ring, bracelet, or your earrings. I love that black Marc Jacobs bangle. It’s on sale too! It probably won’t fit me because I have man hands! LOLDo you own any triangle shaped jewelery?

Rachel Roy the Jewelery Designer

I will tell you right now, that I loooooove Rachel Roy. Who doesn’t? She’s not only an amazingly beautiful woman, but she is a talented designer that really get’s it. Her designs are effortlessly chic. Plain and simple.I really wish she made plus sizes, but I can tell you that her XL from the Rachel Rachel Roy line that is sold at Macy’s could possibly fit up to a U.S. size 16/18. I bought the 24/7 dress, because I LOVED it, but it was a little too short for me. It hurt me to return it. If you’re in that size…

Attack of the Retro Sunglasses

If you must know…I love wearing sunglasses. Always have and always will. I don’t know where it started. But, I do know they not only offer style benefits, they also offer protection for your eyes. You will hear me say that over and over and over. And with all of the current trends from the 80’s and 90’s, you had to know that the sunglasses were going to get in on it. I saw a few of these retro styles at Torrid the other day and couldn’t help but try them on. Unfortunately, they didn’t really fit the shape of…
