I LOVE the movie “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days.” Love it! And sometimes when I’m accessorizing, I think that perhaps I’m “frosting myself.” You know…adding the icing on the cake. Because honestly…what is cake without icing?! Personally, I could eat a vat of just the icing most of the time with a tiny bit of cake. In fact, my friend KB’s hubs does eat his cake that way. He puts the piece of cake on a plate and then a HUMONGOUS glob of icing on the side to go with the cake. Straight out of the bowl…loads of icing. It’s the best way to eat cake. But I digress…and you get the point. Cake is nothing without icing. And clothes can be dull without accessories.
Becca is back with us today. Remember I told you yesterday that she’s the Queen of the Layer?! Well, I think part of that job description must require a serious understanding of how to accessorize. I’m a fan of the concept “if you want to know about something, ask the person who you know does it best”…and so that’s what I’m doing. I’ve asked the person that I know absolutely dominates the accessories scene. And with awesomeness. So here she is…Accessories Tip Maven…my friend Becca:
I personally love Fall – Not only is it my favorite season of the year
but it is the most fun for putting together fabulous outfits
with all those yummy layers.

Thanks Becca! And I just have to say…I totally have that cute lace top, and every time I wear it…yep…compliments!
I personally have an obsession with earrings. Remember this cool thing I found to store them?! Probably I love earrings so much because I make them…and more than that because they can add an instant punch to the top half of your outfit too. SO Becca and I are teaming up to host a fun accessories giveaway today! She’s going to be giving away the super awesome scarf pictured above (and below with me modeling it)in pine green, mustard, or charcoal, and I’ll be throwing in these cool earrings that I made! (The penny is in there to give you an idea of the size.) And if you don’t win these…make sure to check out my local fav, Lily Pottery, for some more rad jewelry….and come to the show I’m hosting for Lily on Nov 29th from 6-9pm!
