Tips on How to Wear it from Bedknobs and Baubles!

As a belt designer, I’m always looking to show customers new and interesting ways they can wear Nona E Rose belts.  Along with a tumblr page, I’ve decided to have some of my favorite bloggers share some styling tips with you. The first up is Jessica from Bedknobs and Baubles. After launching a couple of months ago with stellar gift guides and inspiring color/trend boards, it quickly became of of my favorite reads.

Without further ado, here are some great “How to wear it” tips from Jessica, please stop by Bedknobs and Baubles for more great style suggestions;

“For a gal who loves accessories, a belt is anything but utilitarian. A belt is an accent piece, a much-needed pop of color, a shy experiment with leopard, and a flirty creation of an hourglass figure. Definitely not utilitarian. Here are a few of my favorite waist-cinching moments;”

Calculated Risk

My 2 favorite looks from Sunday’s Golden Globe were hands down Michelle Williams in Jason Wu and Claire Danes in J.Mendel.  Neither starlet sported a traditional gown; taking a risk, {but taking it well}. The combination of prints and embellishment with simple silhouettes result in a look that is both elegant and unexpected. Not to mention both stars gave 2 of the best acceptance speeches of the evening.

Eye Candy

After hearing Warby Parker’s Neil Blumenthal discuss their brand at an Afingo event on Tuesday night, I’ve been gushing over the below 3 pairs of sunglasses. Their free shipping/free try-on policy and Buy a Pair, Give a Pair initiative make them even more enticing!
