MEET ALLISON

Jewelry designer, Allison Taylor-Moseley started her company with no more than a basic knowledge of wire wrapping and $700.  She used that to purchase a small batch of gemstones, wire, and chain which she creatively turned into her debut collection that she unveiled in 2009 with marked success.  Within 6 months she was selling her collection in several Austin boutiques, at an artist’s market, outdoor festivals, & trunk shows.  In 2011, she and her husband traveled around the country for 1 year in an RV selling her jewelry and honing her craft.  She quickly grew a following of loyal customers who can’t get enough of her sparkling gemstones and shimmering textured metal.

Her inspiration comes from her obsession with timeless style.  And, with her experience as a clothing buyer, wardrobe stylist, & mother of 2, she identifies with women who want stylish, “no-brainer” pieces they can throw on with anything and look instantly put together.  Instead of an overflowing closet, she believes a small, thoughtfully curated wardrobe including pieces that you love and wear often is the secret to effortless style.  She’s created a line to satisfy that desire women have for stylish, accessible pieces that work with their entire wardrobe, but still feel luxurious and high-end.  Her mission is to help women step it up a notch, and love their jewelry collection again.

Allison personally sources and hand-selects all her gemstones.  The metal is hand-cut and hammered in-house; each piece is made-to-order in her studio in Austin, TX.  She is passionate about using 14k gold filled and sterling silver chains, clasps, and earring backs so your pieces have lasting quality.

GO CONFIDENTLY INTO SPRING By Guest Blogger Tina Hamilton

 

FringeBag-CloseupMy trademark spring look, boho chic.

Spring is here and everyone is getting excited for the change of the season. Spring not only means that the weather is warmer and the flowers are blooming, but also that there are new fashion trends to peruse. With all of these great new beginnings, it’s impossible not to get excited for spring!

Even though there are so many great things about this season, many women dread the change because warmer weather usually means more revealing clothes. It can be difficult for any woman to shed her winter layers and expose herself to the world.

Here are some tips to help women confidently wear this spring’s fashion trends:

Start with basics that fit perfectly

Every woman needs to have a few essential items in her closet that she can pair with any outfit and feel fabulous in. some of these basics usually include a great pair of jeans, thong underwear, and a few layering t-shirts. Starting with these basics can help any woman rock a new trend with confidence.

Add a new twist to a trademark look

Most women have a trademark look, or a go-to style that they loved last spring and summer. Anyone can use these looks to create a new and fun trend that they will be able to wear easily and comfortably. For example, if last year a woman could not be separated from her maxi dresses, this year, she could try wearing a crop top over the dresses to create a new style.

Use light layers to cover up

Even though the weather is warming up, women can still use some layers to make each outfit a little less revealing and more comfortable. Most women will use sheer fabrics that are lightweight but still solid enough to cover any areas they are less comfortable with. This year’s mesh trends are perfect for this.

Focus on quality over quantity

Many women make the mistake of buying trendy pieces that are made of cheap fabrics and overall poorly made. Though this may seem like the best financial decision at the time, it is almost always better for women to invest in higher quality items. These pieces will not only last longer, but they will also be more flattering to a woman’s figure.

Only wear the trends you really love

Even though the media may tell a different story, not all trends are made for everyone. Women should recognize when a certain trend does not fit their style and avoid wasting money on something they will never wear. Instead, a woman can use her own style to make new trends and fads that she can feel proud of.

Take a chance on color

One of the best trends that always makes its way into spring fashion is bright color. Every woman can find one bright color that they love and that flatters their skin tone. This season, many women are trying out bright pink or coral, which is great on almost every skin tone.

Finishing touch with accessories 

The best way to put the exclamation point to your new spring outfits is with fun accessories. Adding a great pair of sunnies, gemstone earrings and necklaces and a festive handbag lightens up your look after all the heaviness of winter.
