Accessorizing For Spring with Style Expert Stefani Greenfield

Stefani Greenfield is a true style expert with several successful businesses under her belt. She is the co-founder of Scoop stores and was recently made Chief Creative Officer of the Jones Group. Stefani certainly knows a thing or two about effortlessly combining uptown chic with just the right amount of downtown cool. Check out some of her fabulous picks and tips on how to seamlessly “successorize” your spring time style.

Look 1: Vibrant Patterned Scarf – A bold, bright colored scarf is the perfect complement to any neutral dress this spring. My personal favorite is the Splendid maxi dress. The Theodora & Callum Jaipur Fringe Wearable Art Scarf will take your basics from ordinary to extraordinary! Finish off the look with some fabulous jewelry like the Theodora & Callum Silver/Brass/Gold Salon Bangles. For me gold bangles are a staple in my wardrobe, they can be thrown on with any look, in any climate and any time of year. Have fun mixing patterns and pair the outfit with these Theodora & Callum Orange Bali Espadrilles!

Theodoraandcallum.com has some incredible tutorials on interesting ways to wear your scarf. Check out our Ways to Wear videos to take your scarf from street to beach and beyond.

A Small Purse Can Be a Girl-on-the-Go’s Best Friend

Noelle-Aldo-Blog

Running around from show to show during Fashion Week can be extremely stressful, especially when you are carrying a large purse and jacket wherever you roam. Well, ladies, kiss your large handbags goodbye, because I found a cute substitute. This adorable phone purse from Aldo really made my Fashion Week less stressful. The small purse not only holds your cell phone, but your digital camera and business cards as well. It is perfect when you’re attending networking parties, shows, or events, where huge purses or clutches can be overbearing. Attached to a gold chain, this little accessory simply hangs from your shoulder, as if you are carrying nothing at all! The purse comes in different animal prints and colors to go with your attire. So, next time you’re on the run and only want to hold a few items, take along this lovely purse from Aldo. I am sure it will make your busy schedule a whole lot easier, as it did for me. =)
