With every new season a new trend follows. For this winter 2012/13…it’s all about brooches and large stone jewelry. When it comes to brooches, they are not just an accessory piece. They are absolutely a great way to add a bit of beauty to an outfit. A brooch can be worn in many several ways.

Ways to wear a brooch:

  1.  In the hair
  2.  On a coat/jacket/blazer
  3.  On a purse
  4.  On necklaces
  5.  On hats
  6. On Scarves

Gemstones or precious stones on the other hand…are definitely in. What better way to show off you birthstone than to wear them BIG and BRIGHT. Whether it maybe an earring, necklace, ring, bracelet or band, they will most certainly make a statement where ever you go.

So, here we are again. The holidays are just around the corner and you haven’t got a clue on what you’re going to give as gifts.  Many people stress over the perfect gift for someone. While others may take the easy way out by simply purchasing a gift card.

SCARVES…yes, I said it…Scarves!  Scarves maybe considered as an old traditional gift, but sometimes they are the best gifts. If you live in a region where the winter months can become quite harsh…then scarves are one thing that will come in handy.

A scarf can definitely transform an outfit depending on the color, pattern or style of that scarf. Because of its versatility, a scarf is a great way to accessorize an outfit. Trust me, there a tons of different styles of scarves that will match anyone personal sense of style.

For all my D.I.Y people…if you have basic sewing skills like myself, stitch a nice scarf instead of buying one. Just simply head to your local craft store and pick out a cool fabric design.
