This will be the first of a few posts like this because there was no way I could narrow down this topic to just 6 items. Recently, I was digging through my drawers and closets trying to “clear the clutter” like I discussed in my Closet Organization webisode. I stumbled upon several things that I had to take a good hard look at…things I’ve had for yeeeeeears! I do this every Spring and Fall. It’s almost like a game I play with myself. Should I chunk it? Keep it? Give to my sis or a close friend so it stays in the family? (my besties and I do that with items we really love) Donate it? Sell it on Ebay? Those items we have purchased wisely, which never go out of style, absolutely should keep their cherished spot in our wardrobe. Especially after selling so many of my beautiful designer things after I got married and finances were tight! There are some things I’m so happy I kept!
Here’s 6 timeless accessories I love:
1.Red Peep-Toe Slingbacks
These were the very first expensive pair of shoes I bought myself after I booked my first TV show here in LA. They are by Casadei and I always felt like a million bucks when I wore them. A great red pump with a timeless heel should be a staple in every fashionistas closet! So Old Hollywood!
2. Gold Bangle Bracelet
A classic gold bangle is the perfect add-on to any outfit…casual or dressy. A single bangle or a few stacked always adds that bit of “wow factor” without being over-the-top. I’ve been obsessed with arm candy since I was little. I rarely leave the house without throwing on a bracelet… or two!
3. Low-Slung Brown Leather Belt
This is probably one of the most talked about items in my webisodes. It is so versatile and can instantly hide the muffin top! Add it to a tunic, jeans or sundress to create the illusion of a longer waist and smaller hips. If you do not own one, I suggest running out and getting one ASAP!
4. Rhinestone Evening Earrings
Can you believe these were the earrings I wore to prom? I remember it like it was yesterday.. finding them at this chic boutique in Houston on Westheimer Rd. Back then, this was like shopping on Rodeo Drive for me! I don’t wear rhinestones much these days, but a girl never knows when she may need to pull them out!
5. Quilted Chain Bag
I just realized this is one of those items I mentioned that is from one of my besties, LeeAnne (make sure to check out her blog, LeeAnne Locken Loves>>> link on the right side of this blog) gave this to me at least 15 years ago. Chanel made the quilted chain handbag famous. There have been several knock offs and variations, but the authentic handbag was presented to the public in 1955 and will NEVER go out of style!
6. Statement Necklace
Whether it’s long and sleek or short and embellished, a fabulous statement necklace is always in. I think this one is technically vintage by the brand Trifari from the 70’s. Like the gold bangle, this is a piece you can throw on with just about any kind of top or dress for a bit of oomph.
What is one of your most coveted items that you hope to keep and maybe pass down to a daughter, niece or granddaughter?
So it’s the middle of May.. how amazing is your month going so far?
Please share and A-ha’s, breakthroughs or beautiful moments!
