Accessories of the Week

Let’s spice things up today and rather than our usual Looks of the Week post, let’s try out something a little different. Here are some gorgeous shots of jewelry, bags, hats, shoes, and other glorious accessories to lust after.

Rock n’ roll goddess! This is such a ‘reach out & touch it’ texture fest – The crocheted top, the studded leather collar, and that phenomenal silver & gold necklace.

This safety-pin bag is pretty much the cutest thing I’ve seen lately. It’s an adorable piece to add to a basic black & white outfit like The Glamourai so expertly did.

Wow. She’s taking the splash of color trend to a whole new level – Can you imagine anything more mouth-watering than that gorgeous cherry red Celine bag? Want!

How adorable are there H&M earrings from Style Scrapbook? They’d be great at night or even during the day!

Alexander Wang. Nuff said!

A great pair of flats are a must have. What’s your perfect pair? I love ones like this DVF pair that have a little something special to make them unique.

I love classic and I love feminine, but I also love dramatic and avant garde. How fabulous is this ring?

This cuff is to DIE for. Leave it to Hermes!

Colorful. Fun. Irreverent. All words I like to use to describe accessories!

 

LOVE. Want it all.

These are so cute! A great neutral sandal that you can wear with virtually anything.

Holy high fashion Batman! Not only do I adore her black & gold jewelry, I’ve been dreaming of this Givenchy handbag for MONTHS. This is actually the gift that I’m planning to get myself for the big 3-0! 🙂

Doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, everyone loves arm candy!

A nude heel doesn’t have to be boring. Finding a great pair of pumps with interesting and one-of-a-kind detailing is the way to go!

Tres chic! Not sure about mixing gold & silver jewelry? Wendy makes it work.

Just stunning. I absolutely adore David Yurman, and the campaigns, and these are three fabulous examples of his chic, fun, timeless jewelry.

Audrey from Be Frassy always has killer accessories and these are no exception. I adore the classic black mixed with chic punk-inspired spikes.

Summary Saturday

I’m going to take a page out of the fabulous Fashion On Top‘s book blog and make today’s post a summary of what’s happened over the last week on the blog and the other various social media outlets that I post on.

Food – While I don’t photograph all of my food or even all of the new recipes that I try, sometimes a meal is just too tasty or too fun to pass up a photo-op. Here are a couple shots that passed the test this week.

SERIOUS munching over here! #Shakti #indianfood #vegan #glutenfree

Snacking. #rawrevolution #synergy #healthysnacks

#cantstopeating #vegan #glutenfree

Fashion – When I can remember I’ll snap a picture of my accessories, handbag, or even my outfit for the day. Most of my Instagram updates are my jewelry though, since its the easiest to capture solo.

Wearing a new dress always makes my day! #sanfrancisco @Zara

Hello lover! @ninewest #fashion #sanfrancisco

Time to switch wallets! @CHANEL @Longchamp_US @HenriBendel #Fendi #Goyard @veneta_bottega

Misc – What I’m best at capturing are all of the random things that happen throughout the day. The frustrations that everyone can relate to as well as the little “I love my life” moments. From outing in San Francisco & weekends away to shopping adventures & meals out on the town to my crazy cats & amazing friends, family, and boyfriend.

I really like the idea of this kind of post since I know a number of my blog readers don’t use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest regularly, so this gives them a chance to take a look at those outlets. What do you think? Do you like having a weekly summary? Should this be a recurring series?

Looks of the Week

Below are some looks that I’ve enjoyed recently and wanted to share, hopefully they can help get you through the rest of this day.

Carine works the Parisian pavement in a bold floral pencil skirt and ankle strap black pumps. Divine.

Ashley Greene looked elegant in a great tea-length Oscar de la Renta dress. Between the jeweled and glittering bodice and the black and white feathering at the bottom this is anything but boring.

I've never included an Instagram photo before but this one posted on Twitter by the Oscar PR Girl was too great to pass up. Her note: “wide leg trouser, gold sequin bolero (backwards)” Hot!

 

This is such a great, versatile look. If your office is business casual this is an amazing way to keep things interesting, try pairing a top or coat with a fun silhouette with standard black pants. The look is visually interesting but still appropriate for many occasions.

On a non-fashion note – am I the only one who saw Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and now feels like she knows Rooney Mara incredibly well? Like, we’re kind of friends now? I feel like I should being calling her “Roons” or something…
 
 

How do you make something fun & new like animal print skinnies look more relaxed? Distressed boots and a loose button-down of course. P.S. I've been drooling over this Alexander Wang duffel for over a year now, I think it's officially time.

 

Keira Knightley looked phenomenal in a deep burgundy Burberry Prorsum gown with a keyhole slit and a sweet bow-adorned black belt. I like the combination of 20's style finger waves with a non-retro dress.

 
You can also see her recent UK GQ Magazine cover here – I love the shot second from the bottom, the pale blue sweater dress is gorgeous.
 
 

Roons is back! 🙂 This girl has hit her stride with Givenchy, she picks really great pieces - interesting and flattering to her petite frame and head turning, but not revealing or overwhelming. I especially like the back on this one.

 

Layers are the key to staying warm and what I love about this look is that it shows you that they don't have to be boring. You can mix different colors, fabrics, textures, silhouettes...

 

What Do I Wear is one of my favorite sites for fashion inspiration and its awash with gorgeous Spring colors these days. I couldn't narrow down my favorite, from stripes to florals or peachy tweed, they all make me desperate for Spring to hurry up and arrive!

 
Have a great Thursday, I’ll be back tonight.
