I found this fashion house while perusing instagram for inspiration on wax-made clutches. The good news: the store is located in Cotonou, Benin but ships worldwide.  The sad news: there are only eight items listed now on her etsy store. There may be more coming…:) Also, her website needs to upgrade, but she definitely has some interesting accessories to offer 🙂 Will keep you posted if I get more info on this store.

 

Style Watch: Spring Summer 2014 ‘Sissi Must-Wear’ List

One of my goals this year is to schedule which style I will be tending towards for a season (I usually just go with the flow of what I feel like or what is there in front of me) and to recycle clothes I already own.  So I turned to the fashion runways to select two or three trends that I will strive to maintain for Spring and Summer 2014, mostly using clothes already in my closet.  I blogged on some trends HERE.

  • Item 1: Soft Pastels with contrasting belts and bright accessories.  Am in love with the simplicity and muted tone of the outfits with the occasional pop of color 🙂

  • Item 2: Whites with lace or metallic.  I’ll strive to wear more whites with studded accessories or just metallic accents.

  • Item 3: Keep it simple!! A dress with a belt and sandals, or pencil skirt with shirt…simple yet elegant 😉

A Quick post on outfit ideas, and a street style outfit I saw yesterday and really liked.  I have a grey dress I barely wear so now more inspiration to pair it up with accessories!  The skirt is Moulinette Soeurs by Anthropologie, I couldn’t find a direct link online but it is from spring 2013 if am not mistaken.
