Accessories Report

It can get tiring seeing the same types of accessories in every store and online website that you shop at. At times it feels as if stores are recycling their merchandise and putting it back on the shelves. They have cute items, but you’ve seen it all before. There is a solution to this problem—design your own accessories! That is exactly what this creative Fashionista did. She is wearing a handmade bow from her bow line that she started over winter break, Bows by Rach. What better way to show your style than through your own designs? The bow she is wearing features a playful blue and gray zigzag pattern. It adds a vibrant pop of color against her brown hair. Whether your hair is long, short, curly or straight, bows are a fabulous hair accessory choice.

Not only does this Fashionista have extraordinary taste in hair accessories, but in necklaces as well. She is wearing a mint floral necklace from Forever 21. This is a great statement necklace to sport during the springtime and to wear with pastels. The diamond accents and rhinestone trim give it the perfect amount of sparkle.

If you’re not a fan of wearing colorful statement pieces, you can never go wrong with a simple pair of pearl earrings like the ones this Fashionista is wearing.  She finished off this look with a pair of brown leather riding boots from Tory Burch. I love how all of her accessories contribute to the look, making it both preppy and feminine.

It is truly inspirational to see a Fashionista wearing her very own fashion creations on campus. If you’re getting bored of the accessories you see at the mall, take matters into your own hands! Never underestimate what a little bit of fabric and creativity can do.

Spotted: Big satin hair bows and pearl jewelry made an appearance in the Luella spring 2009 ready-to-wear collection which had a girly and fun vibe.
