Fearless Fridays: Treat Yourself

Fearless Fridays: Treat Yourself

Dear Friends,

We all deserve a little reward…  Why not indulge in something you wouldn’t normally gift yourself?

Also, don’t forget that Mother’s Day (May 10th) is right around the corner.

This is a great excuse to forward this to a loved one who never knows what to get you for the occasion. And make sure you mention which of the trio is your favorite. I’ve been a longtime admirer of Clare Vivier’s designs, especially when it comes to her clutch purses.  I love the bi-colored stripe down the middle, which makes it easy to coordinate with both blue and black.

This Calypso dress may have a simple silhouette, but with its sequins and elaborate paisley detailing, makes it quite the treat!  If you want to temper the sparkle during the day, throw a denim jacket over the shift dress and pair with nude sandals.

Here’s an item you may not have thought to accessorize with–a gift certificate of my services! I’d be happy to help with your sartorial needs and help you be thoughtful about what clothing you put on your body and in your closet.

Minimalism.  I’ll always remember fondly as a young teenager reading about Italian designer Miuccia Prada.  This was the nineties and monastic dressing was the new style as a response to the over-the-top maximalism of the eighties.  The sartorial world pronounced Ms. Prada’s designs not only the height of fashion, but her position as the reigning queen.

Now, well into my thirties I am just as enamored with clean crisp lines today as I was then.  Sparse silhouettes are welcome in accessories as well.  One local jewelry line who embodies this aesthetic is Limbo Jewelry Design.

Husband and wife team Edson Enriquez and Ann Rutt-Enriquez founded Limbo Jewelry Design in 2005.  As the creative director, Mr. Enriquez has a clear love for architecture which translates into playful use of shapes in the jewelry.  I’m particularly fond of the lariat necklaces, a staple for each season; you wear the necklace by threading one of the shapes through the other.  It not only creates a striking effect, but highlights how you can personalize the necklace and make it your own.

Please join me Thursday March 21st at 6:30pm for my first style talk of the season!  Limbo Jewelry Design is celebrating the opening of their new South Congress location in Austin, Texas…  For more information, please go here.
