As Valentine’s Day draws near to us it’s the perfect time to look for heart shaped or heart pattern accessories! I love heart shapes as they are romantic, whimsical and fun to wear. I love how anything with hearts immediately adds a sweet and quirky touch to your wardrobe without being over the top (like my giant stuffed Bunny back pack from Wego Japan and artist Esther Kim lol)I decided to put together a cute collage of heart accessories that don’t scream Valentines Dayas well as being very affordable! These can be worn all year around. Enjoy and let us know in the comments if you bought anything or what’s your fave.

See you in 2018,
It’s the time of year for that feeling to shed your boring, stuffy work clothes and dip your feet in some warm sand with a cold beverage while wearing whatever you want; that my readers is Wanderlust! Though festival clothing are only reserved for Summer the accessory that goes with all that hippie flower child laid back wardrobe; the Wanderlust bag can be worn any season!This bag usually has tassels, beading, fringe and can be made from burlap, straw or even leather! The materials are endless and the bag has to have a global traveler feel to it. I love how this bag can carry a lot, is sturdy and can go with most outfits; and carrying it adds such a cool wild child feel to any ensemble. Here are my picks and all are under $50!
The beret has been popping up every season thus far so I think it’s safe to say it’s THE accessory for 2017. The beret is very versatile as you can wear, frilly, military and punk versions; they also go with any outfit. I love trying out new trends but sometimes you don’t have or don’t want you o spend the money on something you may wear a couple of times and then Poshmark it..So I have once again scoured the internet for these budget friendly styles and will be asking the lead designer of up and coming fashion label Dirty Celebrity; to make me a bigger crazier version that will fit my head because my braids don’t fit most standard sized hats ( with the exception of baseball caps).
For the past several years people have been looking for small pieces to go with the exaggerated features of clothing (most recently, sleeves were added to this list) but with the return of simple styles like a new cold shoulder and loose blouse styles; big is having a moment.
So here is a rundown of the jewelry trends we are all be rocking this summer, on the beach and in the office:
Givenchy chose a Quartz Slice for his statement piece.
These new updated looks are more subdued then past styles relaying on bulk chains and oversized pendants as focal points. There are also more likely to feature stones than the metal counterparts in the 90s.
How to wear:
- Keep the top simple and stay away from exaggerated features (like those statement sleeves)
- Keep neckline high, too low and clevage will fight for attention. Why bother wear a necklace?
- Stay away from layering, too much clothes ruins the look.
We love statement earrings because they are the easiest trend to wear. This time, earrings are less about sparkle and more about color, shape and form. The idea is to make an artistic expression.
How to wear:
- No hair accessories
- Try to keep hair away from face with a sleek pony or a bun. Braids work as well for a more adventurous look.
- Finally, be cautious about weight and size. If you have small lobes, stick to plexiglass varieties because they are lighter.
I was browsing through Vogue March issue and came across a Fendi ad featuring GiGi and Bella Hadid dressed like dolls in front of these amazing Fendi pastel embellished handbags that look like they were made by angel hands and delivered by unicorn!! The bags retail from $2600-6700 ; So here’s some purse porn for you all and hopefully I can live through one of you! Comment and share pics if you get one! Meanwhile a girl can just dream of Fendi…Le..sigh..
Fashion rings have gone to the waste side when cocktail rings exploding into popularity in the 90’s and then fizzling, maybe with a whimper, into obscurity in the 2000’s.
We all have since wondered what will replace them. Will engagement rings be the only ones we wear from now on?
Wearing rings in the winter was always a bad idea but the abandoned baubles are back for Summer.
Let summer be the season of the ring! Here are the trends we are seeing in this category for the warm months that right now seem a memory:
Yep, these knuck framing rings are back this summer. From simple metal rings to the glitter diamond band above.
Simple varities can be found at Charmin Charlie, JCPenny’s and Macy’s.
These large baubles were spotted on 3 different runways and we heart them all. The styles ranged from large stones to rhinestones with natural motifs in the middle.
The basic idea was big and who doesn’t want to draw attention to your manicure?
Shop these trends and be happy, it’s finally #friyay…
Happy friyay fashionistas,
This bag was seen on many a runway and its versatile shape, ease of creation and the fact the design is so manipulative; we were surprised to see it at every price point. This makes the envelope crossbody the most easy attainable bag this year. The list of designers creating the style runs from Betsey Johnson to Zac Posen and every designer in between. Yet, no 2 styles are alike aside from the shape.
Mid Priced – Upper
We have all seen these bags at high price points so we are diving into the ones we can actually afford with looks from Kate Spade and Zac Posen.
We love the Classic look of Kate Spade and it starts at $295. It comes in different colors and the gold name plate is minimal branding.
ZAC Zac Posen on the other hand has a new take on the bag by increasing the width but maintaining the flat front. If you carry alot of items this could be a good choice. Price point: $179
Mid Priced- lower
Of course, we have to add Betsey Johnson studded strap and bow accent envelope crossbody in pastel blue or pink. We love the patchwork look and for just $68 it is a steal, quick Lolitas to Macy’s.
Yep, you could look at any direction and even your regular haunts and find a bag in this shape. Still, check for quality, the width of the bag and the lock are important features.
Happy Hump Day
With Jessica Alba and Kendal Jenner both spotting this trend we are dubbing 2017 the year of the mini bag!
As Kendall shows its okay to what is now being called “layering” or carrying one then one bag. So we lined up a simple guide to wearing these in every style.
We loved the waist variety for punk and rock. It resembles steampunk styles. The main point is to look for leather or vegan leather styles in either bright colors or studded. We also liked drawstrings and then mini flip clutch.
The mini flip bag as shown is so cute and easy to dress up and down. There are a variety of prints out there so try them all.
This Western style rounded satchel looks great with vintage clothing. It isn’t exactly a 70’s staple but the look and feel seems to be just the right touch.
I loved the top ring mini bags. They are perfect to hold and a sweet touch to any outfit.
The mini bookbag was one of the best bags because it can hold alot of items. Even though not as easy to acess like the other styles, it still has roominess that the other bags lack.
We will have more mini bags on our instagram and facebook so check them both out all this week.
Happy New Year! We have the best shoes in 2017, that we all want. The last couple of years was ruled by flats and if you are last most women, it was hard to adjust but this year heels are back!!
We are so excited to see not just heels return; they are also in sensible with most heels at a reasonable 3 inches!
Let’s take a quick view of some of the shoes we covet this year:
Fringe will be every where this year from booties to heels. The location will vary from back, sides and front. The new class will be in bright and bold colors with embroidery details.
The 70’s heel is here to stay and even gets a redo with buckles and slim bows this year. We love the sculpted heels on the Jill Sanders pair.
Cool patterns, textures, and prints are the latest in statement heels this year. The heel are 3 inches in the new chunky stiletto heel. The idea is to invoke a statement rather it is the ultimate zebra print complete with tail at Gucci or the remake of the glass slipper by Dolce & Gabbana; the details are stunning on these statement heels.
We did not leave out the guys!! This year we got 2 trends for you to try as well.
The Strappy Sandal
These are back in mixed colors and styles. The kind of look like the jelly sandals we wore as kids but in cool leather and neutral colors.
A remake of the sneaker is always a must with these above ankle looks in patchwork patterns. We still see the common black and white colors but we are also seeing additions of red, navy, army green and yellow.
So check out these cool shoes for 2016.
Happy new Year!!
