On the Dot


Stella & Dot is my new favorite accessory line that I recently discovered while browsing the local Sisters Consignment boutique owned by Charisse Layne here in "Sin City."  Her boutique was filled with amazing merchandise such as furniture, clothing and accessories.  Brands spotted were Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Jimmy Choo to name a few.   Hmm... that last part rhymed!  Anyhow, I especially loved that her store is eco friendly!  There are recycled hangers, racks, shelves and all items are gently used.  At Sisters Consignment they Re-Gift, Re-Use and Recycle.  I had fun browsing the boutique, however, I can't help but  find my way to an accessory such as this bracelet that I found!  Pictured above is the clover single wrap bracelet perfect for layering.  It was a major plus when it came in this cute box!  Visit Charisse's site at sistersconsignment.net



Oh accessories how I love thee!!!  My closest friends all know that I can't get enough of accessories!  To me, accessories can save the day!  You can wear the most plain, simple tee and dress it up with stackable bracelets or a statement necklace.  The possibilities are endless!  Some of my friends face the dilemma of not knowing how to accessorize or pick what goes with what.  The key is to be fearless.  After I pick out what to wear, I simply go to my birdcage (yes, I have a birdcage wear I hang all my accessories) and look in the mirror and ask myself what does this outfit need.  If it has a crazy neckline maybe earrings or a cocktail ring might complete the look.  If it's a plain tee then perhaps I'll choose the route of sporting arm candy with stackable bangles.  In the winter, you will probably find me wearing mostly necklaces or rings since my arms aren't showing due to long sleeves.  It is possible to overkill with accessories.  If a statement necklace is worn, then your best bet is to not throw on some dangly earrings.  Allow the statement piece to breathe.  Is the accessory simple?  If yes, then don't be afraid to layer!  In a nutshell, it's hard for me to leave the house without completing a look with bracelets, rings, necklaces or earrings.  To me accessories finish off the outfit like a period or exclamation point at the end of a sentence!  Now go on, be fearless and accessorize!

  1. Ooooh very pretty! I have to agree about the 'overkill' of accessories, best to stick to one bold piece :)
