Why Accessories?

Why Accessories?

Accessories are the secret to great style and are what French Women depend on to create their unique style. 

Here are 3 reasons why you need to incorporate them into your style.

How to Accessorize with lots of Necklaces! 

1. You don't need to buy new clothes.

Accessories allow you to take your little Black dress and make it look different every time you wear it* or change your white shirt and black pants from the perfect work outfit to a stylish look perfect for dinner out by changing your accessories.

Change your accessories change your look!

Black and white necklaces on there own are not unique. To make them trendy I'll take all the ones I already have, buy more and wear them all together. My new look is trendy, and I feel totally en-vogue. 

2. Accessories are the easiest way to stay trendy.

Every season new fashion trends hit the runway. Staying stylish means including those up-to-the-moment pieces into how we dress. Accessories that are à la mode are the easiest and best way to stay current. Adding to your wardrobe by buying a few pieces that are en vogue is always fun, but using what you already have and creating your look with a scarf, shoes, a hat and/or earrings is the best way to create your look that is au courant. 

How to accessorize. Use your accessories to decorate.      Why hide all those necklaces? I keep them in the bathroom to add color!

3. Accessories are cost-effective. 

Buying cutting-edge sunglasses, shoes, or necklaces is far less expensive than buying a new dress, pants, or tops every season. Accessories are cost effective. Over time they don’t go out of style, how you wear them is what changes.

 In order to master ‘The Art of Accessorizing,' you need ideas for inspiration, a mirror to stand in front of, and practice, practice, practice, remember the joke "How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice.”

Despite what many American women think; being chic and having that 'je ne sais quoi' style is not part of French women genes (well, maybe just a little). Instead, they observe fashion and rehearse how they can personalize it to create their style.

Last week’s blog post made me think about what other things I do to challenge myself. When cooking, I love to make something I’ve never tried before.

Thanks to an amazing vet, Reinmarie Williman, from Veterinary Care of Mt. Pleasant, who is probably the most caring doctor I have ever met... as a family...
