It’s all in the details

Accessorizing.  It is the last layer of dressing whether it be while grooming yourself or your home.  And I am a horrible accessorizer.  There.  I said it.  It isn't that I don't like accessories…it's just that I don't like to wear things or display things in my home that aren't meaningful and usually, by the time I find something meaningful, the trend is over.  So I live day to day in blue jeans and brown t-shirts in my home of white slip covered couches and reclaimed wood furniture.  My psyche could use some glitter and glamor and yet I still never pull the trigger and thus I, and my home, always look nice…but not polished. Of course, this fear of anything more decorative than a pair of diamond stud earrings and a crystal vase on the mantle doesn't mean I can't dream of someday being more a more accessorizing person.  So it is with the hope of someday being able to step out of my comfort zone that I present to you these beautiful accessories for you AND your home. Dooney & Bourke's North/South Zipper sack in Grass Green pairs gorgeously with ZGallerie's bright green and white Apgar Vase.

This preppy Candy Stripe Bangle from Kate Spade is a perfect compliment to this Alessi 'La Rosa' Fruitbowl. Playful, romantic ruffles are everywhere this season from Classic Summer Totes to Floret Pillows. Candy-like baubles sparkle whether by a beaded necklace around your neck or a chandelier lighting your dining room. What are your favorite special accessories?
