Accessories Report: Charlotte Moss for Halcyon Days

Interior designer Charlotte Moss is known worldwide for her “couture living” aesthetic. Now the designer icon has taken her knack for elegant details and ideal color palettes and created a super chic collection of enamel bangles for UK favorite Halcyon Days. The contemporary bangles feature vivid colors in colorful ikats and geometric prints. (Kind of reminds me of the Hermés versions but without the hefty price tag.) Wouldn’t these lovelies be an excellent addition to your bangle collection?

In the Mood

Remember mood rings? The accessory was one of my favorites as a little girl, and I always believed that the ring really did coincide with my present mood. Well, Urban Outfitters is bringing back the mood-matching accessory in the form of a lipstick. The lip lacquer goes on sublimely sheer and comes in five different shades: Temper, Melancholy, Clarity, Vain, and Lust. You’re sure to find one that corresponds to your mood of the moment.

A Touch of Sparkle…

Merry Christmas Eve, dear readers! This morning I woke up feeling rather festive, and nothing is more festive during the holidays than a little bit of sparkle. Decorate your look this evening with some shimmer via sequins and metallics (note: less is more! one piece at a time!). Here are a few ideas to inspire your holiday look (and some possible options for New Year’s Eve too!).

Gift Guide: Last Minute Buys

It’s the same routine every year. When Thanksgiving rolls around I vow to start my holiday shopping early so that I can finish early and rest easy during the holidays. But every year I inevitably end up at a crowded mall or boutique on the days right before Christmas scrambling for last minute gifts (just like I did last night). I’ve put together one final gift guide (you can check out my others here, here, and here) for all those last minute buys. 3 days and counting…

Shop It: Lizzie Fortunato

Lizzie Fortunato‘s newest jewelry endeavor is for Chance, a shopping site dedicated to the basics of style. Her colorful and beachy accessories are the perfect addition to any nautical tee or little white dress. She may be known for her knot necklaces, but I love the way she can be more mimialistic in her statement piece designs than most designers. Lizzie’s work can also be seen in Urban Outfitters stores as well as online at ShopBop.
