*Image above showing some of my personal all-time favorite possessions: Aquazzura Powder Puff mules, which you can still find in very sparing variations on Outnet or gently used on The Real Real; a vintage jewel-buttoned cardigan from my grandmother; velvet cameo earrings from MissiGirlDesigns (generously gifted to me!); Sam Edelman velvet heels (this exact style, but they’ve discontinued the velvet burgundy colorway…the suedes, especially the navy suede!, are fantastic though!); Lele Sedoughi cord headband (exact style here in a fab emerald green, or get the look in burgundy for a fraction of the price here); and black velvet Amazon headband, somehow sold in a pack of four for $10, but I just wear the black one!
I am loving all of the dramatic statement accessories out this season! Halo headbands, embellished heels, oversized bows — give me all of it! I love these accessories to jazz up a white blouse or tee and jeans, but let’s be real — I’m an extra-on-extra kinda gal, and I love to layer with other shimmery, jewel-toned finds, like this puff-sleeved blouse or a satin skirt (look for less). Also kinda digging this midnight blue satin slip dress…wow! So chic!
If you are an expecting mama, these embellished accessories are your ticket to making it through maternity-wear in style. You can just wear the same denim/leggings and white maternity tops and accessorize to high holiday with all of the pieces below!
I want to mention that tomorrow morning, one of my favorite jewelry designers, Nicola Bathie, will be launching a collection of dresses, shoes, and accessories with Antonio Melani very much in this vein and I am hoping to get my hands on a pair of these jeweled heels she posted about.
