>Fashion Friday, Accessories Edition!

>

If you’re a regular reader of my fashion Friday posts, you know I’m in the midst of a super hard but fun fashion challenge, the 15:30.  I’m wearing the same fifteen  pieces of clothing all month and not buying a single stitch of clothing until October. But that means a ton of accessorizing! So I have allowed myself to buy a number of fabulous new accessories.

Yesterday my neighbor had a Stella and Dot jewelry trunk show. I recently learned of their stylish accessories from my fashionable friend Susan, so I was eager to go check out the offerings. I first perused their website and saw that they are indeed pricier than my jewelry standby, Premier Designs. But their look is significantly more modern and hip.

I took some video but unfortunately the first half didn’t come out. You can see in the photo above the necklace I ended up buying, as well as the gray flower brooch to go with it. It can be worn at several different lengths, with and without either of the two brooches. I consider that kind of versatility a good investment.

Also this week I bought this gorgeous multi-color two strand necklace…on clearance at Target!

And I got these super hot black suede booties on super clearance too…no idea why they aren’t marked down online yet. Plus a few earrings, some pink rain boots, a polka dot umbrella (it was monsooning here due to Tropical Storm Hermine when I bought this stuff!) and a purple cloche.  Yeah, I was thinking accessories!  My friend Pam, the Accessory Whore, would be so proud.

And now that I’m on a roll with buying belts again…I found a stunning Michael Kors leopard fur belt on Rue La La that I decided to splurge a bit on.

So there you have it. I haven’t actually saved any money yet during this 15:30 challenge, but my focus has definitely shifted. I definitely feel more pulled together when I’m dressed for the day in something from my now tiny wardrobe, because I put extra effort into the shoes and jewels, etc.

Have you recently splurged on a pricier clothing or jewelry item that you consider to be a good investment?

  2. >Interesting. I'm enjoying this challenge! 🙂 I always splurge on jeans. If there is one wardrobe piece to spend money on, imo, they are it. I will also spend money on shoes and handbags. On all other items, I try to stick to sale items and more modest price points. I think jewelry is a great way to accessorize cheaply. There are so many cute things that don't break the bank.

  4. >Lovely!I just bought a handmade necklace from Eddie Bauer of all places for $9! (and I had a $10 gift certificate so it was free!)My favorite splurge is shoes. It's hard to find shoes in my size (10) that are comfortable and stylish. So when I find a good shoe sale I tend to pick out one or two super nice pairs.

  5. >Ooh I love bargains like that! Free is my kinda word. If I had trouble finding good shoes in my size, I'm sure I'd splurge on good ones. Lucky or unlucky I have a very common size 7…so I tend to buy lots of super cheap shoes, many of which end up being really uncomfortable in the end.

  6. >I know about your thing for good jeans 😉 So far I still haven't found a real reason to splurge on jeans. Today I was at Nordstrom Rack and I put a couple pair of Sevens in my cart. They were a "bargain" at $119. But I couldn't justify it so I put them back.
