SHOPPING GUIDE// ACCESSORIES ON ANOTHER LEVEL

Let everyone else wear their regular seasonal accessories! YOU... you are ready for elevated accessories that hit both the basic AND the directional boxes at the same time. You might say Vanessa, nothing can be basic + hit trends + fashion forward at once. I say to you: of course they can! 

I've found them for you boo! 

HATS, LIDS AND SUCH

The Refined Ball Cap | The Modern Beret | The Wooly Fisherman Hat

Upgrade your ball cap, with this day hat, which combines sporty vibes and French girl "day hat" vibes.  Want the next "new new?" Wear a modern version of a beret! Yup. You can do it.  Finally, when everyone else is wearing a beanie, you will rock a wool fisherman's hat and let the flaps warm your ears all winter long, collection compliments from passersby. 

JEWELRY, BELTS AND 'TINGS

I roll my eyes when I hear the 70's are back as a seasonal "trend" because it means a whole lot of obvious iterations of fringe, tassels and flared legs. BUT how about incorporating these "trends" on the sly with your accessories? Enter these two pieces. The necklace is tough and the belt is simple enough to go over your favorite jackets, coats and dresses. 

The Fringe Necklace | Tassel Belt

 

You know what's fun? Updating your eyeglasses for the colder months. It gives your look an overall boost. Anyone else want to look like Malcom X? Let's do it! 

SCARVES AND NECESSITIES

Infiniti Loop Scarf | Art Lady Scarf

Why anyone wastes time wrapping their scarf around their necks, time and time again all season long is beyond me. A tasteful loop scarf is the piece that keeps on keeping on. This two-tone scarf is everything you need it to be! 

Let's paint the scene: An art show, the lady in her mid 50's to 60's wearing funky glasses, all black clothes most likely designed in Japan or France, speaking in an un-identifiable accent, don't you want to be her when you grow up? This is her scarf. 

Socks and Hosiery 

You know those super cold months when you want a knee-high sock? How about a faux-leather white one? Yup. 

You're such a lady - have cool socks why don't you? 

SHOP THE LOOK BOO!
