The Final Layer – Why Accessorizing Your Outfit is Important

The Final Layer – Why Accessorizing Your Outfit is Important

Have you ever walked into a room and noticed something missing? You admire the room, with its generous proportions, comfortable and stylish seating and colorful rug. So what’s wrong? It’s the final layer that so many people forget; the artwork, the vases, the books, something interesting on the coffee table and of course, flowers. It creates the ambience, the drama, the individuality of your home. Many people forget this layer and the outcome is a perfectly utilitarian room that serves a purpose. But is it fun?

There is a definite correlation between designing a room and deciding what to wear for the day.
I constantly see people dressed appropriately, but with not much flare. What’s missing is the jewelry. Just one piece of vintage or antique jewelry can make an outfit. It can make an outfit interesting, show your individuality, and allow your creativity to shine. An amazing cocktail ring in a vibrant color, an unusual brooch, or a big chunky cuff can all make your outfit pop.

Take a look at our new offerings and please remember, Valentine’s Day is 10 days away.
