Get Pinned: It’s Pretty Charming Lapel Pins and Other Cool Shit

We love discovering new brands, we find it a bit exhilarating to know about a new product or new designer before everybody else. We have many stories of our discoveries, many typical, many unique. Today we’re going to share one of our most recent discoveries. We joined a Facebook group because a friend of ours is a member, and through that group, we discovered Shantel Turner-Collins and her incredibly adorable accessories, the It’s Pretty Charming Lapel Pins. These very chic fashion pins prove that once again, good things do come in small packages. As we’re in February, Black History Month, and the month of love, it’s the perfect time to highlight the giftable It’s Pretty Charming Lapel Pins.

The adorable handmade lapel pins currently come in five options – Enamel iPhone, Enamel Parfum Bottle, Enamel Purple High Heel Shoes, Bucket of Flowers, and a Black and Red Coffee Travel Coffee Cup, and retail for $4.95 each on her Etsy page. All five It’s Pretty Charming Lapel Pins comes with a black backing for easing pinning. These perfect little accessories will make a big impact when you wear them on your favorite jacket, jeans, or handbag.

You can see them all on her site, www.shanieism.com.  They’re perfect for those times you’re forced to curb your language (raise your hand if you too want a “Saving My Coins for The Shit I Plan to Buy Retro Coin Purse?”.)

Another cool accessory is the above gold-plated, 3 Piece Macaron Multi-Color Keychain, Purse, and Handbag Charm. These chic french favorites are available in four colorways and retail for $6.95 each. How freaking cute are they? We definitely need these delectable keychains in our accessories draw. What about you ladies? Any favorite items you must possess from It’s Pretty Charming?

 

Defy Mother Nature with these Stylish Accessories

Thanks to Mother Nature’s some indecisiveness on the weather, we sometimes find ourselves unable to decide what exactly to wear. That tricky time when the weather transitions can be a frustrating one when it comes to clothing selections. Thank goodness that’s not the case when it comes to accessories. No matter the temperature or weather condition, you can just throw on a fab bag, or belt, or jewelry piece with nary a thought of mother nature’s shenanigans. We’re highlighting our fall must-haves from some of our favorite accessories brands, PONO by Joan Goodman, Joanna Maxham, Carrie K Jewelry, Moro Tran Luxury Bags, The M Bag, and Starling Jewelry. Join us as we indulge in some gorgeous jewelry and accessories.

Joanna Maxham is another luxury accessories brand we’ve highlighted on My Life on and off the Guest List. The brand doesn’t disappoint when it comes to classic luxury bags, especially since so much goes into making one bag. Did you know it takes seven people and 4-6 hours to make just one Joanna Maxham handbag? The stunning bags are hand cut to the smallest detail and assembled by a team of skilled artisans, assuring perfection from beginning to the end of the bag’s journey. This season, we’re loving the spacious convertible top handle Castaway handbag (pictured above) with the double zipper closure, and the oh-so-chic Flapper Mini (not pictured), a compact crossbody that doubles as a clutch and boasts fringe details on the front.

Dune Jewelry: Wear Sand from Your Favorite Beach Vacation

For all tourists, bringing home souvenirs from your latest trip is a must, a small token of their escape from their regular lives to a new destination. Souvenirs evoke memories of the fun-filled days spent relaxing on the beach, eating new cuisines, and enjoying new views, especially if the vacation was to somewhere tropical. While many may grab t-shirts, handmade pottery, and seashells, many may wish to take a bit more from their favorite destination, a keepsake that will last. In comes Dune Jewelry with a beautiful and memorable option to carry the memories from your favorite destination with you.

Some of my favorite and most memorable vacation spots boast the most beautiful beaches, this includes the island where I was born, here many of family members still reside, and Oprah selected as her favorite, the island of St. Lucia. It’s been years since I’ve enjoyed the wonderful beaches of St. Lucia, but thanks to Dune Jewelry, and it’s founder and designer, Holly Daniels Christensen, I’ll carry a piece of the island of my birth with me wherever I go.  You see, Dune Jewelry is the original beach sand jewelry company.
