A red beret ~ accessorizing

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I love finding ways to elevate a simple tee and jeans. This red beret is one of my favorite hats ever. I found it at a tiny boutique years ago and it's one of those items I get so excited about pulling out of storage every winter. I practically wear it all winter, every winter. (See November 2011 and November 2010 too.)

The velvet blazer was a hand-me-down that I had tailored to be a slimmer fit. The baubles are H&M from about two years ago. The necklace is SO faux, that I think it's fun. It's just sort of ridiculous. I always find a reason to want to wear it (like here and here and here too).

Although it's nice to build a jewelry box full of authentic gems, costume jewelry just makes me happy. You can get tacky and trendy and loud and spend next to nothing. Oh, and the gloves... remember when I found them here? Thrift store gems. They have tiny gold beads sewn into them.
