The Jewelry District got its name for a reason. Back in the day (as the kids say), the neighborhood was the epicenter for the manufacturing of all those fun baubles we love to wear. Most of the traces of that bygone era are now gone: most of the old buildings repurposed as office and…

Who says that scarves are just for the cold weather months? Light and airy summer scarves look great with that plain white t you’re always bumming around in. It’s a quick way to fancify that lounge-around-the-house look into something you can actually go out in (but still be comfortable).

Wider scarves serve another purpose in addition to just a fashion statement. Amongst the summer heat are intensely air-conditioned restaurants, shops, and theaters. Unravel your scarf for an instant shawl whenever you need that little extra layer in a cold place.

If you are into multi-functional accessories, InStyle Magazine (July 2012) says that long necklaces are for you! You can use them three different ways:

  1. Wear them long for maxi dresses.
  2. Double them up for v-necks.
  3. Twist them around for a bangle bracelet look.

This is also the perfect thing to bring if you are going on a trip and can’t pack too many accessories. 

 It’s always important to pick out an outfit that is professional and appropriate for a job interview, but did you ever consider that accessories matter, too? It is best to wear something understated so that your fashion sense doesn’t distract from your personality and professional skills. But there are some accessories that will work in your favor. According to Marie Claire, wearing a classy watch will show your good taste and impeccable timing.”  And carry a  structured bag – a slim bag with top handle and shiny fixtures - because it has the professional look of a briefcase while still maintaining a feminine style.

Domaine Designs came across a quote today from Kate Spade. She once said, “I think that playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends.” The ladies in the Domaine Designs office remember dressing up as princesses and ballerinas. We still get excited when we can dress up for real to go to a special event like a wedding or New Year’s Eve party.

Did you play dress-up? What’s your favorite event to dress up for?
