Accessories make all the difference!

My grandmother's 1964 dress and the jewelry she wore with it.

I finally found time to put together different ways to wear the 1964 dress…The bear investigation, the weather, DIYs, and other whatnots have held my attention lately…

 Today, I want to show how accessories make all the difference when putting together outfits! It is easy to look classy and vintage or comfortable and cute…accessories are a crucial part of every outfit!

Cobalt blue is a fun and fabulous color that pops against this light pink dress!

I WANT YOU TO ACCESSORIZE.

Don't you just love Peeps??? Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Belt: Target, Necklace: from my mom's jewelry collection

Is there anything better than pink and black?? Oo la la!

Every fashionista needs a simple black belt, black statement jewelry, and sexy black shoes!

Shoes: Kenzie Girl, Belt: Target, Necklace: from my mom's jewelry collection.

TIP: Don't be afraid of color! Dare to stand out and be different!

"I believe in pink...I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls." -Audrey Hepburn

V.I.P. TIP: When shopping thrift store/vintage shopping, look for simple lines and neutral colors that can be easily accessorized.

This spring, I would like to challenge you to invest in fabulous and classic statement jewelry! (Pssstt….don’t tell my deddy, but I did a little statement jewelry shopping on Etsy last week…I will be sharing my fantastic finds with you soon………….)
