“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” – Michael Kors
Every outfit is not complete without accessories to accompany it. Sometimes, an elaborate garment speaks for itself and needs no other introductions f. For there is an accessory for every occasion, it all depends on asking the question of when and where. Here are a few of my favorite things at My Home Fashion Boutique:
Put A Spring In Your Step
The first recommended accessory is the asymmetrical perforated grey suede booties from Spring Step. That’s a mouthful! Their collections feature hand printed leathers with cutout detail and embellishments, adjustable straps and lightweight outsoles for long-lasting wear. Spring Step intends to truly give their customers quality and comfort, while being too cute to boot. These suede booties were made in Europe with traditional high quality craftsmanship and it shows! They are constructed with real leather uppers, soft leather linings, memory foam insoles, polyurethane outsoles and vegetable-dyed leathers. These boots are definitely made for walking. Besides the bonus of comfort, they are recommended because I also believe these booties are a must have for your closet. As someone with a flat and wide foot, finding comfort and style simultaneously is like going on a treasure hunt on an endless loop. Another good quality to these booties is the neutral color. This sandy grey tone works well with both warm (red, yellow, browns and tans included) and cool colors (blue green through blue violet, most grays included). The details on these booties are also nicely done, leaving room for the feet to breathe. These booties are versatile enough to dress up a chic summer dress or rock out in ripped jeans.
Our Lady, Guadalupe
The next hot item is an intricate envelope clutch/shoulder bag designed by Guadalupe. This proud local brand is known for its line of textiles that are woven, designed and dyed by artisans from India. This is my recommended piece because of the handcrafted design, color, size, and versatility. The design is a woven sophisticated zig zag cotton pattern. The color is a classic two tone neutral palette, which easily accompanies every outfit. The size is big enough to fit all your essential must-haves. The best part is it can easily transform from a shoulder bag with a braided handle worn from 9-5 to an evening clutch.
This Summer, Clutch Some Raffia
The last quintessential piece is a mini raffia clutch by Flora Bella. It is known as a lifestyle collection providing diverse and fashion forward resort beachwear looks to women from all walks of life. One of Flora Bella’s specialties is making handcrafted accessories with natural materials and functionality. The clutch is handcrafted with 100 % raffia on the shell and 100 % leather in the lining. My favorite part of this clutch is the braided straw with a swirl detail. This accessory has also been accessorized with delicate mother of pearl sphere clasps. It is my recommended piece simply because raffia is a classic in both fashion and interior design. It has also been all the rage for summer 2017 and accompanied every prominent designer’s collection and featured heavily on their Instagram. This clutch works for every occasion and for both day time and evening. It accompanies every outfit and works well with patterned pieces.
