Accessories Mini Haul

Today I paid my 1st visit to a Charming Charlie store & all I can say is WOW! Neat accessories & everything arranged by color, plus the layout & design of the store is just classy.

It's halfway through the month, so all I could afford is a ring for now. I definitely want to go back when I have more dough.

Earlier this month I bought a couple items from Claire's online store. I got a ring & a bag. The bag was a bit bigger than expected, but that's ok because I've already found a good use for it. :) As you can see from my purple finger in the image, the Claire's ring is a wee bit too tight, lol.

So, the Claire's ring is a bit of a disappointment. It's not as pretty in person & it's kinda tight. I love the bag though & I love the ring I got from Charming Charlie.

So, what do you guys think? Have you shopped at both stores & how would you compare them? My impression is that Charming Charlie is a bit more grown-up & very classy. I still like Claire's though. Let me know your thoughts in the comments! :)

Charming Charlie - A Cool Accessories Store!

I just recently heard about an accessories store called Charming Charlie & I've discovered that there's one not far from where I live. They organize their accessories by color (purple, red, pink, blue sections & more), which is awesome because that should make it a lot easier to find an accessory in the right color for your outfit!

I've heard it described as being like a more grown-up Claire's on steroids, which sounds cool because I love Claire's. I hope to check it out soon! Have any of you, my readers, heard of or visited a Charming Charlie store? What did you think? Let me know in the comments! :)

I did something bold & daring! Lol.

Ah, the fedora! So classy, so stylish on either gender! A type of hat I've always admired & wished for, yet I always thought I couldn't pull off hats. "Hats look strange on me" was a thought I always had.

Fast forward to yesterday, I'm in the Sears mens department with my family admiring a jaunty black & white pinstripe fedora. It's in mens xl, which means it actually fits (one-size-fits-all mens/womens hats never did fit my huge skull). It fits & I look at it admiringly, but "hats don't look right on me".

My Sisters' insistence that the opposite is true & finally my Brother-in-Law's opinion that it looks good on me (plus the fact that it was on sale) convinced me to bite-the-bullet so to speak & I went ahead & bought it. You can see the results in the image. What do you think of Women wearing fedoras? Let me know in the comments! :)

OOTN 3-11-11

I recorded this Outfit of the Night video a couple weeks ago, after the percussion show at my Nephew's school. Stay tuned for some percussion show clips at the end! My nephew doesn't want to be seen freely over the net, so his clip wasn't included. I included the 3 clips from the intermediate-advanced classes that came out the clearest.

Hair Accessories - A Snap To Use?

A friend of mine opened her own Etsy store, Agenda Hidden, fairly recently (Sept. of this year) & she has come up with these very cool & innovative "pony snaps". So, I thought I'd let you guys know about them.

Basically, it's a fabric flower w/a backing that has elastic & a snap. You can snap this around fine hair, a barrette, a headband, a purse strap, you get the idea. The possibilities are endless!

Do keep a lookout for her pony snaps & other hair accessories & check out her facebook page!

...no this ain't about the prohibition, it's about a new accessory. I get Accessories Magazine's News Flash email newsletter in my inbox. And today's was all about the new bootlegging.

Literally a boot attached to thigh-high tights which you just roll down, pull on, & stretch it up to the top of your thigh, and you're done. Odd, isn't it? What do you guys think of this? Yay or Nay? Let me know in the comments! :)

The ZannClip

I was recently given the opportunity to to try the ZannClip (Thanks Suzanne!).

Oh if only these had been around when I had long hair!

Because of the top coil of the barrette & the fact that it comes in 3 sizes, it can automatically adjust to the thickness of your hair w/o pinching, pulling, or yanking. It is also very versatile.

Besides the traditional ponytail you can create a variety of stylish updos as well. Overall, I think this is a very ingenious idea & I mourn the fact that this wasn't around when I had long hair. What trouble it would've saved me! I heartily recommend this product for purchase.

Oscar Night 2009

These photos showcase the standouts of the evening. I thought Anne Hathaway looked elegant in her Armani dress & her overall look had a bit of old Hollywood glamor going on.

Evan Rachel Wood's Art Deco inspired dress was also gorgeous, & Kate Winslet's one shoulder slate blue w/black overlay dress was a stunner as well! There were others I liked too, but I think these were my favorites of the evening.

What were your favorites of the evening?
