I am beyond excited, peeing in my fashionable pants (really) to announce my recent collaboration with Northern New Jersey Bloomingdales. They hired me as a style expert for upcoming in store events. The first, Bubbles and Baubles was on September 19th to showcase this season’s top accessories. I was thrilled to be on hand, lending my style opinion to clients in completing their new fall look with an on trend jewelry piece, sunnies or new fabo handbag. It was thrilling to hear as I helped guide clients through this seasons keys pieces, “I love it Candace, thank you for your help”. Working alongside the very talented team at Bloomingdales was an added bonus. Come find me at my next event on October 3rd, in Bloomingdales at the Shops at Riverside, in Hackensack, New Jersey.
When it comes to accessories, I am a bit obsessed. My motto is “one can never have enough.” I believe baubles are the final paint touches on an art canvas. Add an ornate necklace, chunky ring or piling on a stack of bracelets to a simple outfit, will transform your ensemble from drab to fab instantly. Balance is key, select one place to make your statement, whether its in your ear, arm or neck, keep all other pieces uncomplicated.
My Must Have Accessories For The Fall:
This is a trend that pretty much anyone can rock. One can easily include this look into their wardrobe. It’s fabulous on accessories such as scarves, handbags, shoes and even a necklace. Needless to say, you can wear this free-spirited look just about anywhere, and it’s easier than you think! I adore my nude fringe sandals by Steve Madden. They are like wearing a party on my feet and totally make me feel trend forward when paired with either distressed denim or simple black dress. A word to the fashion wise, do not don more then one fringe piece at a time (yikes).
This is a statement for the bold at heart. I will tell you from experience people shall ask, “I think you might have lost an earring.” You clamor back, no, I just want to try this seasons new one earring trend!” This is the perfect time to retrieve your single earring that you lost the match too in the back of your jewelry box. The single statement earrings can be worn in all shapes and sizes. However, what captures the most attention is wearing unique earrings that are large and attention grabbing. Make sure you sport a simple stud in the other ear to ensure your look was achieved vs a mishap.
Chokers are Back:
The choker is making resurgence back from achat cialis discret the 90’s with a contemporary appeal. Ranging from wide edgy silhouettes too subdued and refined. This neck accessory can add glamour and a dose of edge to any look. They were seen all over the Spring 2015 runways, celebrities and gaining street appeal on bloggers. If you choose to sport this type of neckwear, make sure you keep it to one piece. Now is not the time to add multiple necklaces, overkill.
Pull Out Grammies Brooches:
In recent years, the brooch has felt a bit dippy and might have reminded one of their grandma. They were relegated to the back of the jewelry chest. However, this season they have come back with a vengeance. Grab an oversized piece and pin to this season hottest cape as a fastener. Try pairing multiples on a blazer lapel (I do this with my clients all the time). For the bold, pull your hair in a bun and attach on the side or back for a chic ‘do.
As always I hope that I have inspired you to think outside of your “fashion box.” Inspiring you truly makes me happy. xo- CK
