Inspired Accessories

leoAccessories have the power to add much to a woman’s overall look.  They not only finish an outfit, as much like the decorations on a cake, they can also reveal a woman’s personal sense of style. Because of this, a woman must give her various accessories the thought and care that they deserve. Don’t just toss on any necklace or pair of earrings, take the time to assemble and use truly inspired accessories. Doing so will add a bit more zest and personality to your personal style.

Perfectly Personalized 

Personalized accessories will always be in style. From initial necklaces, to monogramed umbrellas, adding one’s own name to an accessory will amp up the wow factor.  Check out personalcreations.com for a wonderful assortment of personalized jewelry.  They feature bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and even wedding rings for reasonable prices.

A new type of personalization uses digital photos. I especially liked the dog tag photo pendants offered by personalcreations.com.  As described by the site, these pendants are “a wonderful way to keep dear ones close to your heart. Just send us your favorite photo or upload your digital image through our website and we will reproduce it on your choice of either our heart or dog tag style pendant.”

A Sign of Style

Another way to reveal oneself through accessories: zodiac signs.  As a Leo myself, I’ve always loved the lion; therefore, I have several accessories that reveal my sign in a tasteful way.  Manufacturers understand how much one’s zodiac sign can inspire accessories, so they offer key chains, bags, hats, umbrellas…you name it…with zodiac signs.  Click on this link to see some really pretty zodiac sign key chains for cheap!

And remember, phone cases also qualify as an accessory. For only $29, one can purchase a zodiac iPhone 4 slider case by CafePress.

DIY Equals Instant Inspiration

One way to ensure owning unique accessories would be to make some of them as DIY projects. With websites, such as Pinterest, and craft stores, such as Michael’s, directions on how to make a variety of accessories can be easily found.  One can make beaded necklaces and rings, fabric headbands, scarves, totes, bags, belts, and much more.  The best part is choosing the colors and materials that you find most appealing.

Another benefit of making DIY accessories concerns the environment.  Who doesn’t want to make something new out of something old?  The website, craftingagreenworld.com offers five simple ideas for recycled accessories.  Read this article to learn more.

No More Ho Hum

Once one realizes the power accessories hold, she will be more careful when choosing which ones to buy and to wear.  Instead of relying on one necklace for a week’s worth of work outfits, assemble a variety of accessories to help look more fashionable and inspired.
