A to Zoe: "Excess-ories"

"Accessories are everything!"
-rachel zoe

"Slide on a blinding cocktail ring or hook a pair of oversized sparkling earrings, and the transformative powers are undeniable. You might be in your favorite jeans and flip flops but throw on a great belt, you're that much closer to fabulous. That's because even more than clothes, accessories allow you to nurture your inner fashion chameleon."

The "Wow" Factor

"There is nothing fun, interesting, or glamorous in playing it subtle. Don't be afraid of statement pieces. When it comes to styling my clients or myself, I always aim for something that elicits a "WOW!"

{Sugar is very excited to head to Atlanta market this weekend to pick up LOTS of great accessories to transition from winter to Spring. We are going to look into a new fabulous line of belts - we have had so many request from customers - as well as new jewelry and scarfs! Stop back in next week for lots of great new accessories and fashion pieces to brighten up your closet! }

"A shoe can completely change the look of an outfit" -rachel zoe

Tamara Mellon, founding president of Jimmy Choo, describes the four pairs of footwear every woman should have:
1. Ballerina Flats - forever kicky, they can work for eveing or day and always look chic
2. Metallic Strappy Sandals - gold or silver, the look great with most everything
3. Plain Knee High Boots - a winter must, and not just because they look hot.
4. Great black pumps - low-cut on the upper and as high as you can handle the heel. A great pair can take you from the boardroom to the bedroom!

The Fab Four

There are several classics out there, but there are four essential handbags no wardrobe should be without:

1. A medium-sized, simple-shaped leather style that marries fashion and function. Have one in black and another in chocolate or caramel.
2. A winter white bag.
3. An oversized tote. For work and travel, it should be large enough to hold personal stuff and go through airport checkpoints.
4. Black patent clutch. Patent never dates.

"Collect pieces that excite you, even if it's just because of the dreamy way they make you feel at the moment that you slip them on. It's good to have a few things in our lives that are slightly lavish, even decadent. An excessorized life is a glamorous one."
