Have you been scrambling to figure out how to accessories all these new Fall fashion trends?
Well, here are some hints to how I would do it.
Over sized coats paired with over sized earrings
Bold brocade prints paired with bright stone necklaces
Daring prints matched with multicolored bangles
Draped leather matched with reflective earrings
Peplums accentuated with rough sapphire earrings
Fur scarves accentuation with a copper cuff

Stone Earrings * Jessalynne * Knit Scarf * SandeeKnits * Tunic * ModCloth * Skinny Jeans * Joe's Jeans * Birkin Bag * Hermes * Canvas Shoes * Vans *
These are the exact colors I think of when I pray for Fall to come to Florida. Tangerine might be a little bright but the blouse is so cute I can get past that. This is also my favorite silhouette - comfy/large blouse paired with skinny jeans and flats. I could live in that outfit. In fact I'm wearing a blue version of this blouse right now with grey skinny pants. I'm so predictable! What I don't have is this adorable Birkin bag. I am in love with the texture of the leather and the contrast of the handle and piping!

My newest, lightweight beaded bracelets. Each silver chain bracelet is woven with brightly colored Czech glass beads and Swarovski crystals. These add a great pop of color and silver to any outfit and are very light and comfortable. More colors are being added weekly. Bracelets are sold exclusively at the Tampa Downtown Sunday Market by Jessalynne Jewelry.
Here are some of my original designs (still available for purchase)

Crystal Bracelet * Jessalynne * Tribal Tunic * Miss Selfridge * Cardigan * Vanity * Mustard Jeans * Current/Elliot * Studded Ballet Flats * Overstock *
I won't lie, yellow is not one of my favorite colors. I might even venture to say I don't have a single yellow garment in my closet right now. However, these mustard jeans look very cute with a flowy tunic and some flats. So this outfit didn't remind you all of a bumblebee, I paired the gold pants and black cardigan with a soft pink top. Now it's just ultra-girly. But you add the studded flats and suddenly she's a little more edgy and the dagger crystal bracelet lets you know she's not nearly as sweet as you thought. Yes, it's gorgeous and doubles as a self defense weapon. The gold hues of the bracelet are perfect for Fall and dagger shapes tie into the tribal embroidery on the tunic. This outfit might just change my mind about the color yellow!
I think with the right accessories and attitude you can be comfortable in any color. It's all about making it your own and adding your personal style to the look. Is there a Fall Color way outside your comfort zone?

I just want to start off by saying that Swarovski rhinestones are possibly the most beautiful object on Earth. I don't believe I am exaggerating one bit. When I opened the little pouch of glittery awesomeness I was not ready for the jaw-dropping brilliance of each of these little gems! As you know, I've been trying out a couple new ways to incorporate stud earrings into my inventory and as I was browsing for more round crystals I stumbled across the rhinestone section on my favorite bead website. I like to purchase my beads in mixes of colors, that way I get a good variety of products without having to buy a huge quantity. Unfortunately my store didn't sell the rhinestones that way so I had to go looking for them. I eventually found exactly what I was looking for (non-heat set flat backs) and then starting hunting all over Etsy for the perfect backdrop to my sparkly little angels. These discs are special. They aren't just plain old metal stamping blanks, they are stainless steal stamping blanks. The stainless steel is basically a flawless mirror that reflect almost as much light as the rhinestones. How could I not put them together to make one Super Stud?!
