This week I absolutely had to stop this Fashionista because of her killer earrings. These onyx-like stones complete her look and give her an edge. The small stud above the dangling earring is simple and creates an eclectic look with an art deco appeal.
So, my advice for this week is the importance of accessories. Having the right bag or the right shoes may seem secondary to some but it really is an important factor in putting together a total look. There has to be a reason for women matching their shoes to their handbags for years and that reason is these small items make the biggest impact on an outfit.
Personally, I’m a collector of big statement necklaces and earrings like this Fashionista’s. Jewelry is a great way to express who you are, some people like to keep it simple with small necklaces like these Gorjana ones or these Jennifer Zeuner from Intermix. Others, like me, look for that chunky necklace that sort of becomes the outfit as a whole, like this awesome tribal inspired Django necklace.
To achieve this Fashionista’s look is simple, my advice, search through your mom and grandmothers’ old jewelry before running out to buy something new. Most of my jewelry belongs to my mom and my grandmothers. Otherwise check out Forever 21’s selections as they have a vast variety of necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
