Many ladies ask, “Should wear a scarf with a necklace?”
The question shouldn’t be “should I”, but “how should I?”
For years, it’s been faux pas to pair a scarf with a necklace, but now, it’s a hot trend! So how do you create a cohesive, chic look? Well, there are a few ways:
You can blouse the scarf with a choker so the necklace shows above the draped scarf.
Another method is wearing a layered necklace above the scarf in a V. Unfortunately, you can’t see everything that’s going on in this pic. The scarf is draped over one shoulder so it frames the extra long necklace. I couldn’t get my camera to capture it without it being fuzzy. 😦
But my pink Italian scarf & pearls still look so chic!
Next, I tried looping a scarf around my neck once and allowing it to hang and frame different necklaces. Notice that the loop can be close to the neck or further away. I put it further away for the bobble/bauble necklace & closer for the multi-strand pearls.
I also tried laying the pearls on top of a draped scarf. This way the scarf is a backdrop for the necklace. Try to match the weight of the scarf to the weight of the piece. Meaning, if you have a classy scarf, put it with a classy set. A whimsical scarf should be paired with a fun set. Don’t mix messages when putting jewelry together. But there are some pieces that’ll work either way.
Works well for covering the cleavage!
Finally, I put the necklaces on top of the scarf.
I hope I inspired you to try some different looks using some of the items you already have (or some you plan to own) & I hope you enjoyed my mini photo shoot. I know I did! Play around with these styles in different colors, fabric types & lengths of necklaces & scarves. Pair them with your favorite ensembles to see which ways flatter you most. And when you find it,

Ever wonder how those models pull off this trend?
It’s nowhere near as hard as it looks. Just pair the necklace with any round collar top to add glitz and glamor.
A pearl collar necklace can add elegance & class to the simplest round collared shirt or tank.
A sequined or crystal necklace can add bling to a blouse!
Let your imagination run WILD!

Are you in a jewelry or accessory slump? Are you tired of seeing yourself in the same combos? Well, upgrade your look! Need inspiration? Creating a great look with fashionable jewelry is often as easy as looking to the past. Fashion jewelry includes vintage-inspired pieces that can help you craft a 1960s style or a 1980s outfit. Elongated beaded necklaces go wonderfully with long, colorful peasant skirts and smocked sundresses. Leather cuffs will accent your skinny jeans and high-top sneakers perfectly. An oversized gemstone cocktail ring is a fabulous addition to a tailored 1950s dress, scarf or even worn as a pony holder. Gemstones are great options when shopping for fashion jewelry. Many semiprecious gemstones are available in more affordable jewelry collections. Look for stunning aquamarine, jade, turquoise, amethyst, marcasite, peridot, garnet and iolite when shopping for vintage-inspired fashion jewelry. Choose fashionable jewelry that will help you express your retro side.

Choosing a necklace for your neckline stumping you? Here’s a few tips:
Compliment a V-neck with a drop pearl necklace or solitaire pendant. This also complements works with a boat-neck or crewneck top.
Pair strapless and off-the-shoulder necklines with a necklace that remains close to the neck. Consider a choker or a short strand of pearls.
Coordinate an open-collar blouse with a thicker, chunkier piece of costume jewelry. Interlocking chains that lie flat on the collarbone add pizazz to a dressy casual outfit or business suit. Coordinate your earrings and belt with the tones in your necklace.
Accentuate jewel-neck or turtleneck sweater with a long string of colorful beads. Precious stones work well with a thicker day look, while crystals bring a little glamour to an evening outfit.
Complement square-neck tops with pendants dangling from a long chain.
I hope this sparks the inner diva within you and helps you unleash her untamed beauty! If not, I hope it helps you pick out your jewelry & avoid the morning meltdown!! lol

Whether we hate to admit it, or love to relish in it, appearance means a lot. Think it doesn’t? Consider your favorite meal coming to you. Would you rather have it on a nice, clean plate or the inside of a trash can lid? Yeah, that was an extreme example, but I’m sure you get the point.
Jewelry is not only an embellishment, but a way to express your personality, mood or intentions. Your jewelry can say “I’m classy and sophisticated”, “I’m bold and daring”, or “I just threw something on”. So, it’s important that your jewelry convey what you want it to.
Do: Pair pearls with button down blouses, boatnecks, camis & suits. Traditionally, a single strand of pearls is worn on an interview (depending on the job description). Multi-strand sets can be worn on other occasions when you want to let your classiness come out!
Wear modern or trendy pearls with everyday attire. What are modern/trendy pearls? Pearls in nontraditional colors, finishes, sizes or patterns.
Don’t: Pair pearls with ultra-casual items like spaghetti strap tanks, sweats etc. (I don’t care what Carrie Bradshaw says! lol)
Ok, I just put these here (below) to mess with you. Aren’t they GREAT!?!
Just DON’T wear them with a tank or sweats! lol
It’s that time again…closet cleaning! I set aside some time last week to prune & it really paid off! I finally space bagged those last sleeveless numbers that won’t resurface til around May when it’s in the 60’s or 70’s. I also cleaned out the kids closets & the community closets. And wouldn’t you know it, a lady was selling new clothes for 50 cents a piece! Yes, I made a killing and got about 70 pieces for $25 (I had to wait about 15 minutes for her, so I got a great discount)! It was a great feeling to get rid of the old & make room for the new. And the new showed up in a big way!
I hope you’ll see the benefit of clearing out old things, people & places out of your life so you can make room for new, more fulfilling experiences. Happy New Year!

Only purchase clothing that is flattering. Think of outfits or garments that you always get compliments on. Did they compliment you on the color? Was it the cut or style? Shop according to those compliments. This doesn’t mean you are people pleasing, but it is a clear indication of what showcases you.
Avoid impulse shopping. You often spend unnecessarily on items you don’t need & usually regret later.
Need to save a buck? Shopping at a high end store off season can save a lot. Add in a coupon or special promotion & you’ll get all of the quality at a fraction of the price!
Swapping with friends is a great way to find out what looks good on you without spending a dime.
Finally, avoid shopping if you are bloated, swollen or in any pain. You will misjudge your size & can make snap judgments.

Thanks & happy shopping!

Fashion Tip: Have a pull or snag on a garment? DON’T CUT IT!!! You’ll make a hole! Instead, follow these steps. First option: Using two hands, gently work the fabric back and forth using a rubbing motion as if trying to rub a stain out. Continue to work the fabric until the pull goes back into the fabric. If this doesn’t work, try this. 1. Using a needle or other implement, push the pull inside of the garment. 2. Turn the garment inside out 3. Tie the pull in a knot. If you can’t, then just leave it there.
I always try to teach this Wardrobehenever I go and speak to women at our local Women’s Resource Center, dress to impress workshops or other ladies’ groups at our local university. It gives you a real perspective of what others see when you’re not looking. If you take these steps, you’ll be much less likely to be embarrassed by a !
To complete this test, you’ll need a full length mirror and a chair.
1. Check for the sheerness of eachto determine if you need a , slip or tank. Stand 1-2 feet away from the mirror. Hold each garment in front of the mirror in front of your face. Open it so you’re only looking through 1 layer. If you can see yourself or even a silhouette of yourself, you’ll need another layer.
2. Get completely dressed to go. I mean clothing, hose, jewelry, shoes, etc. You’ll do this again if you’re going to wear outerwear.
3. Stand in front of a full length mirror. Check front & back for visible, loose strings, tears, holes or anything that’s not appropriate for public view. See if you can see your bra and/or its straps, hemline, , runs in your hose, hanging slip, etc.
4. While facing the mirror, bend at the. Attempt to look down your own blouse in the mirror. Whatever you can see, we can see! If you are showing your cleavage, consider wearing a multilayered necklace or a scarf as a coverup.
5. While still bending at the waist, check for panty line by feeling your bottom. If you can easily feel your panty line (on the sides or at the crotch seam), it’s visible. Seamless, boy leg panties, thongs or hipsters can alleviate this problem. You can also wear which will help as well. Avoid lace panties with thin pants! You’ll look like you have cottage cheese bottom! lol Also, be sure your panties have a cotton crotch to allow “air down there”.
6. Finally (still bending at the waist) reach behind yourself & check the split in your. Insert your finger into the split to understand what people can potentially see. Keep in mind that when seated with legs crossed, your split can be revealing as well.
7. Stand up, reach up high to the sky. Reach around your waist to see if your top is still covering you or if your clothing rides up. Twist at the waist and check again.
8. Sit down & reach to your lower back. Can you feel your bare skin or underwear? If so, it’s visible to everyone.
9. While seated in front of the mirror, put both feet on the floor & check your skirt length. Cross your legs at the ankle & the knee & check again. This is especially important if you’re wearing a skirt with split in the front.
10. Squat to the floor (knees together if you’re in a skirt!) & face the mirror. See what’s visible. Check your back again for skin &/or underwear visibility.
If your outfit passes each step, you’re on your way to a day without wardrobe malfunctions! Now be sure to carry a laundry pen in your purse to avoid those pesky stains at lunch…lol!!
