When the folks at Shine Media asked us to come over for breakfast and peruse some of the shiny, glittering accessories for spring, that RSVP was a no-brainer. Some of our favorite brands were in the house (you remember Sorrelli, right?) and some newcomers that we will definitely be obsessing over.
Accessories veteran Martine Wester has a new gladiator and armor-inspired collection, TOUGH LOVE: battalia. According to the brand, it’s full of “chunky statement pieces for the fashion brave,” and we agree. The Roman touch extends to delicate charmed necklaces, tough-but-tender cuffs, and sweet clutch bags and coin purses.
FPD LOVES Sorrelli, so when we saw these amazing pieces coming out for spring, we immediately started envisioning dates with out-of-this-world rockstars who could compliment the high bling factor found in these new pieces.
All of designer Kathy Flesch‘s pieces are handcrafted in Flesch’s native Colombia with a filigree style that is a quintessentially feminine, fulfilling Flesch’s goal to design for women from all cultures.
For Spring collection first-timers, Ames and Jess seem like accessory experts. Their designs are unique, with a rustic sensibility lent from their use of old metals and charms.
When Lodis says, “You know who you are. Get noticed”, we suggest you take them at their word. Their printed leather bags, wallets, and accessories are not only perfect for someone who must abide by, or prefers a professional look, but doesn’t like to be so cookie-cutter in their choices.
Sister company to Aldo, Spring Shoes is another FPD favorite that we just can’t get enough of. Just about everything is under $80, with the perfect prices and styles for hip trendsetters who want to get the look and spare their debit card. Check out their peep toes and cut-out styles this spring.
