Loving...Chanel Spring 2010

Feminine, flirty and fresh! Chanel has done it again for Spring 2010. Filled with tweeds, silks and lace this season still captures the essence and class of Chanel but hones in on the country gal appeal. In line with Spring 2010 accessory reports woven bags and shoes are a must have for the upcoming season.

Herb Appeal

Cut, chop or mince herbs! How cool are these scissors??
I absolutely love these and must have a pair, would make life SO much easier. Great for garnishing dishes!
They are also dishwasher safe.

Chandelier Bliss

So my boyfriend and I just recently bought a house, now I am in the market for a beautiful inexpensive chandelier. Funny how you see so many things you love but when you actually need it...there's always a challenge. We are looking for something cheap but chic, and modern...nothing traditional.
Any suggestions?

Here are a few that inspire me:

Peek-a-boo!!

This may not be your style, but the "look at my bra" trend seems to be making a comeback.
Sure you need to be a 6-foot model to achieve this look...something tells me it's not going to catch on.

What do you think?

Bold Chunky Stones

This season is about making a statement with your accessories, as you can see from the Spring 2010 Accessories report it doesn’t have to be all about your wardrobe, statement pieces are key!

Bold and chunky rings, necklaces and cuffs could make any outfit go from drab to fab!

My sister introduced me to this jewelry line about a year ago and I cannot wait to get myself one of these pieces. Jody Candrian Jewelry has been featured in Marie Claire and Vogue promoting these gorgeous rocky works of art.

Pieces are made from hammered silver and jagged gemstones. Everything is hand-carved in Brazil, these sizable accessories are made entirely of stone. Jody gets the rocks from all over Arizona.

Here are some of my favs:



Bradshaw Ring



Paige Ring



Fiona Ring




Cosette Necklace


 
Side Beverly Necklace

 
Gilda Necklace

Spring Accessories 2010- The Tribe Has Spoken

This Spring 2010 trend is a mix of tribal influence and a little southern comfort. Beading, painted leather and fringe bring a texas gal/native feel. I think beading and woven leathers will be the real heavy hitters come spring.
