I have a love for accessories! They transform an ensemble from basic to extraordinary and are a potent tool for self expression. There are so many possibilities for transformation.

With one stroke, the right pair of gloves, a careful conglomeration of jewelry or of course a hat can give an older, familiar background a new configuration.  Playing with accessories brings pleasure, creativity and variety to my life every day.

My post this week demonstrates how changing a glove and scarf combination creates a new and different look.  The vintage green hat, vintage YSL velvet jacket and vintage black jumpsuit remain the same.  Along with the estate sale Chanel bag, green glass earrings and patent leather boots.

The life enhancing practice of accessorizing elevates my world!  How about you?

    Accessories are the best, I could probably wear the same clothes for ever as long as I had lots of accessories to ring the changes.
    Your emerald green hat is gorgeous and so are you in these wonderfully joyous photos! xxx

    Oh my goodness, Judith, this green hat is everything! My forever favorite color which is causing me to swoon! And the green gloves are simply marvelous! I agree with you completely that accessories have an amazing power to elevate, transform, and express! Such a great ensemble, for sure, and always inspiring.

    Beautifully arranged accessories are trully able to alter the over all impression of an outfit. I also love hats and do not wear them often enough. You inspire me to take the leap and JUST Do IT!

    You have a superb collection of accessories to choose from, and you always pick the right things to enhance an outfit. I’m afraid I don’t accessorize much in the winter except for my rings and the occasional scarf or necklace. When you have to wear a big coat, earrings get caught in my collar or scarf, and I end up wearing the same warm hat every day.

    Amazing that you scooped up that Chanel bag at an estate sale!

    With your fantastic selection of accessories I’m sure it is adult play time deciding what to wear and what to combine. You do a great job.
