You’re the BEST!

You’re the best for making us the best! The entire staff at Serendipity “Accessories to express yourself” would like to give a giant THANK YOU to “Pittsburgh Magazine” and the fashionistas of Pittsburgh for voting us the Best New Boutique in the Burgh!!!!!! We were acknowledged and celebrated at the Andy Warhol museum last week; our shiny star is greatly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts.  WOW what a great way to kick off the Fall 2009 season!

This Fall season bring us bold rich color, sparkly and exotic accents to be seen anywhere and everywhere unexpected anytime of the day, but most importantly, a lesson from the boys.  That’s right, the boys!  Across the spectrum of fashion for Fall you will see a male flair on the female radar. So ladies go raid your man’s wardrobe and borrow anything that will fit you well; a vest, any kind of hat, driving gloves…you will see lots of plaid with more untraditional color schemes ex. instead of navy/white/yellow you’ll see mixes of purple/blue/red.  I say take a lesson from Carey Grant, Warren Beatty, the tone of style from the TV series “Mad Men” (check it out – you know what they say about a sharp dressed man/woman).

Then all you have to do is add a feminine touch, perhaps a few brooches clustered on a neck tie worn around the neck like a necklace not around the collar and tied like a man’s tie.  All you hippie-chics are still going strong so send your message of change the only way us fashionistas know how – stylin’.  There is something so funky and fun about wearing something with tons of really long fringe and even the peace symbol. You are who you are and you wear what you are – let the world know it.  Accessories are going to be your BFF this season. It’s what adds the edge, image, power and expression of yourself.  Where would Sara Jessica Parker be without all her incredible accessories? ; Which leads to one other trend for the season – think Sex in the City – especially when out on the town; catch an episode or the movie and that’s all we’ll need to say.  One single exotic accessory can change your entire image & attitude plus you’ll be the talk of the town.

So are you ready for change?  It begins with one step out but you need to take it.  Take a step out of the box and into Serendipity for a whole new you.

starKey Trend Accessories: bold cuff bracelets, fur & hats of any kind, knit hats & scarves, mini clutch (fits right inside that endless work bag – go right from office to happy hour),fringe, giant chandelier earrings, large 3D flowers on necklaces, dresses or add a floral brooch to a plain bag and ooh-la-la, metallic anything, layered links, studs, crystals & rhinestones.

starFASHION TIP: Tired of those pesky deodorant marks on dark clothing?  Take an old hosiery, one that was snagged, roll into ball and rub it with pressure in different directions (vertical/horizontal/circular); the white marks come right off.  Perfect to toss into your purse to touch up under the arm area throughout the day – small, indiscrete, reusable & washable.

Until next chat,
XOXO Kimberly
