Thank you all who came by last night to The Fashion Center BID’s Emerging Designers Trunk show! It was a huge success in conjunction with Bottomless Closet and there were tons of generous donations to the amazing organization. There also were a couple of lucky people who donated their old clothing and ended up winning in the raffle of prizes from the designers. It just so happened that one of my former sorority sisters won a neon green watchband bracelet (I swear it wasn’t rigged!).
One of my customers said that she was scared to relive the neon trend that was so popular when we were kids. I assured her that it’s done so much more tastefully this season and to only do it in baby steps through accessories.
I even picked up some new neon pieces from Nona E. Rose and E. Kammeyer to take the baby steps into spring (it helps that it’s basically spring this week in NYC!). I love when you can get the most out of the pieces you own, so I decided I can wear my new E. Kammeyer headband as a necklace. I tend to do that—just like the headpiece that I wore and sold last night that you can also wear as a necklace.
STYLIST TIP: Don’t be afraid to try out pieces in your closet news ways: a dress tucked into a skirt, a purse as a clutch, a scarf as a turban, a necklace as a bracelet. Have fun with it and get the most out of your wardrobe!!
