I love accessories. They’re the icing on the cake of my outfits. Most of my wardrobe is simple and basic, nondescript. It’s the canvas I put accessory’s on.
I love hats, scarves, gloves, earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, shoes, handbags, special coats and interesting umbrellas. There’s more, but you get the idea.
After a lunch with some bloggers last week, several of us went shopping. Elizabeth, took us to one of her favorite accessory shops in the gift center. Beth, of Style at a Certain Age was unable to join us shopping, but was a delight to meet! These ladies are ALL fabulous!!
I’ve always admired Elizabeth’s panache with jewelry. Her motto is to always add another piece, before leaving the house. I love it! I love it on her and can’t wear it. I just can’t carry it off, authentically. And that’s how I know if something is right for me. My gut tells me.
Sandra, of Apart From My Art and Elizabeth found item after item they adored. The oohs and aahs were proof of their delight. They were like kids in a candy store. They’re both fans of Angela Caputi jewelry, from Florence.
Lisa of Amid Privilege knew to sit and watch. I should have done the same.
I ended up buying the simplest necklace I could find, and when I got home realized it will be “gifted” to someone. It’s just not me. What I admire on other women, isn’t always for me. It’s for me to admire, not wear. This shopping experience was a misfire.
I’m in a transition phase. A style change has been in the works with me for several months. I expose myself to many things and try them on to check my gut instinct.
More flamboyant dressers wear multiples of many things at the same time. It works for them and some carry it off well. Most just look overwhelmed.
Few women’s style recipe stays the same, their whole life. We morph, change and grow with new experiences. Our style does the same, or we end up in a style rut that doesn’t match our personality and lifestyle.
The secret is finding what works for you, and feels exactly just like you!
