Best of Spring: Accessories Report
Well girls, we've been hard at work researching all of the spring fashion trends, finding the best of the best in everything from denim and dresses to skirts and sweaters. We've been making our Must-Have lists and checking off those prized items one at a time, hoping against all hope that we would be able to find the perfect pair of figure flattering jeans for spring before they were all snapped up. And I've got to admit we've made great progress in getting those winter wardrobes all switched out and updated for spring. But there is one thing left to do. We've got to accessorize!
It has often been said that accessories make the outfit. Every fashionista worth her Balenciaga knows that a little black dress and a pair of strappy stilettos will only go so far. Need an ensemble for business dinner? Add an updated string of pearls and a chic clutch bag to that classic LBD for the perfect touch of professional chic. How about a Girl's Night Out? Accessorize with a multi-chain necklace, a studded handbag and a pair of edgy skyscrapers and your LBD has gone from prim and proper to über-haute! As stated earlier, the accessories make the outfit!
I've had my girly girl posse hard at working researching the hottest accessory trends for spring, so let's get down to business!
Nude Heels: These are a great investment for spring and summer, and nude heels will also transition far into fall as well (and they add a definite air of individuality!) Look for styles with a little something extra, something that will make them stand out from the pack: Embellishment, bows, buckles, and stud detail.
Sexy Sunglasses: You know you should protect your eyes from the harsh glare and bright sunlight, so you may as well look amazing while you do so, right? My favorite shades for spring are from Cinzia Designs. I am blessed/cursed with long lashes and often have a hard time finding sunglasses that fit well, without my lashes rubbing against the lenses every time I blink. My shades of choice for spring are the Capri in tortoise shell for daily wear and the Papillon for casual wear from Cinzia. Both have gradient lenses and offer 100% UV protection, and a very flattering fit.
Fashion Scents: Yes girls, scent is an accessory! As Coco Chanel said, "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." Well these fabulous spring scents will have your future looking and smelling very bright indeed!
- Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Perfume — The sensuality of a daring red dress. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. Dark and enigmatic.
- Kiehl's Aromatic Blends: Orange Flower & Lychee — An exotic fusion of Orange Flower and Lychee, sweetened with a touch of honey and rounded out by Moroccan Rose.
- Kate Spade Walk on Air — Sweet and tender layers of lily of the valley, magnolia and crinum lily caress the skin like a breath of fresh air. The fragrance exudes delight. It's an invitation to seize the day and envelop yourself in the promise of something wonderful.
- Krigler English Promenade 19. — this classic fragrance is an exquisite blend of sweet orange blossom, fresh grapefruit, sensual white musk, oriental neroli and ylang ylang. The authentic pure scent of Elegance.
Chain Gang: The vote is unanimous — big bold chains are the accessory of choice for spring and summer. From exquisite necklaces to bold bracelets in silver and gold, chain link is all the rage. Layers of chains or just one statement piece, choose the style which suits you best.
Fabulously Fresh Bags: Styles for spring are absolutely perfect — from the easy bucket bag and classic crossbody to the trusted tote bag with a fresh feel. Look for ladylike influences like cutouts and embellishments, as well as bags trending toward rustic. Choose the style and size that best fits your needs for spring, whether you just need a wristlet to carry a lipstick and credit card, or have the need to tote a change of clothes for a quick getaway!
It's all in the accessories darling!

Designer, Lori Hirons, a former NYC banking executive, began working on
the designs when she was still a full time banking executive. “I had a
long commute into the city and I started brainstorming around with ideas I
had. The first one was the dress we call The Anna. It is a wrap dress
unlike any other. It completely wraps the woman so there is no unintended
flashing in a strong breeze. It is comfortable and adjustable to
accommodate many body types. I design for the Caribbean (where I live
now) and I take the colors and vibes of the islands into consideration for
any design or fabric I use,” says Lori.
