It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that accessories are hot again this season. Scarves are still strong and will continue through fall and winter 2011. Brightly Twisted has caught our attention as a brand that makes one of a kind hand tie-dyed scarves for the Boho gal in all of us. Brightly Twisted scarves are perfect for when you need an easy and funky accent piece to spice up a simple sweater and jeans or tied over a maxi dress.
Celebrities like Rachel Bilson have become huge fans of the line because they’re not only super chic but amazingly comfy and wonderful year ’round. These scarfs are so soft they could be mistaken for tissue cashmere (which runs a much higher price tag)and make the perfect pop accessory for Fall and Winter.
Available at Chelsea Brentwood, 11704 barrington Court, Los Angeles, CA 90049 (310)471-4770. ($99.00-$108.00).
Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time to revamp the wardrobe and add fun and colorful accessories to the mix. With so much to choose from online and in stores, we’ve curated a fashionable assortment of some of our favorite finds…and to make them even more enticing we kept each piece under $100!
A few key accessories are all you need to be on trend this Spring 2011. Chloe wire-framed glasses on sale are always in style and who’s really going to know you got them on sale, right? Gold earrings in geometric shapes are all the rage this Spring 2011, as well as interesting bangles in bright and bold colors. Speaking of color; turquoise, coral and white always say Spring is here.
A lightweight scarf is also a must have for those cooler days and for throwing on at night. We love International Goodwill Ambassador (and supermodel) Liya Kebede’s new line of handmade scarfs called Lemlem, meaning “to bloom” in Amharic. The line is ultra hip and was started as a way of providing Ethiopian weavers with a means to escape poverty; so not only will you look good but you’ll feel good too!
Finally, the well accessorized gal always has a floppy hat in her closet; the perfect accessory for a quick getaway to Palm Springs or a leisurely day in Malibu.
