Hot natured? Hot flashes? Hot climates?
If a belle wants to be fashionably cool, we have the answer for you!
Nonie belle had one terrific gift under the tree called Hot Girls Pearls…
It comes in an insulated bag…
The pouch acts as a cooler so you can throw it in your purse and throw them on when you get heated.
Finally a way to be fashionably cool…literally!
They are available in white, pale pink or grey. And they have different lengths (16, 18, 20)
There is even a bracelet version available…extra cool!
And we love the magnetic clasp for ease.
Remember, belles like to be cool…and if we can do it in pearls…well then we may have just found our little slice of heaven.
Get them here.
Stay cool, belles.
Need a cool Valentine’s gift idea?? Check this out!
One belle recently made a new friend at the Post Office (it pays to be friendly, folks!). This new friend happened to be a young man who is in the watch-making business and was shipping watches to customers all over the country. Well, of course, this belle’s ears perked up! We mean…what self-respecting belle/style blogger doesn’t dig an enterprising young fella who is following his dream and making beautiful things??
Fast forward a few hours and we found ourselves searching through the H. Goose website and drooling over the simple, classic, locally-made timepieces! Take a gander…
The “larger” Saluda Field watch with smooth brown leather band. A MUST-have for our fellas (and perhaps ourselves!!)
Available locally (the Greenville area) at Gage’s on Augusta and M.Judson on Main Street, and online at HGoose.com, this just might be the perfect last minute Valentine’s gift for your sweetie (male or female!). And the price point is belle-ringin’ too! Just $165 for the majority of the designs. Score!!
Check it out, belles!!
While out-n-about and on the job (aka…shopping) the other day, we ran across an über-cool line of accessories that we simply MUST share! We love to see a little somethin’ new and different, and thought these were just a kick!
At Taz “on the Plaz” in Greenville, we found these awesome necklaces using vintage (and totally functional) whistles!
Combining style, history and safety (a belle needs to protect herself sometimes), these stunners from BLO Vintage will blow your socks off!!
With so many options (they have bracelets, too) we belles can always be ready for what comes at us…”every breath counts”
And speaking of “every breath counts”…BLO Vintage is very active in its support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, working to help those who battle CF and doing its part to help find a cure.
Now that’s worth whistlin’ about, belles!! You DO know how to whistle, don’t you??
Bezels and Bytes has some beautiful options…so don’t be shy, be fit. Time to step with style!!
Baublebar is letting us belles customize our own set of jewelry for summer!!
Look at what you can do !!!
And so much fun, we might just go for it twice!! Baublebar is speakin’ our language.
So get your summer refresh of adornments here. Y’all will be thanking us and your pocketbooks will be thanking you!
Here’s to summah!!!!
We must share a gift that is perfect for graduation, a special trip, to commemorate a special event or, in this case, an 18th birthday gift!!
This particular birthday-belle has terrific taste and an eye for finding just the right gift. She requested a “coordinates ring”(LINK!!) (which she introduced us to by the by) as it is stylish, unique, fashionable, sentimental and memorable. Just like her!! She wanted the coordinates of a special place in all of our hearts out on the west coast. Of course, we couldn’t possibly deny her and it turned out beautifully.
The jewelry is customizable in several ways: material, finish, outside coordinates, interior engraving (we did her birthday) and even an option for a birthstone.
We also love the bracelets…and wouldn’t it be fun to have a few of them representing places that mean the most? We could think of quite a few memorable places we’d like to have on our wrist.
And the necklaces are just as awesome…
Whatever style you choose…for whatever occasion, surely you’ll agree that this is a gift that any belle would adore receiving! And, yes…that belle just might be you!
We are back, belles, with more eggs-ellent gift ideas…this time with a focus on accessories and the fellas in our lives (can’t forget the poor dears!). Get ready to do some clickin’ and buyin’!
For the “techie” in your life…or really pretty much anyone over the age of 10 with opposable thumbs…a phone accessory or two would be sure to please. Put a spring-y twist on it and you have yourself a perfect little Easter treat…
This sweet little beauty is from Zazzle…and they have like a thousand-plus more options! Good luck with that decision!
And because small mobile accessories tend to “grow legs” and disappear, just about anyone would be happy seeing one or two of these amongst the jelly beans:
Find these at Urbanears
Next, remember this post on tassels? Well, how about a fun, Easter-egg-colored tassel from Clare V. to add a little sass to a spring bag?…Perfect to nestle down in the teen-belle’s basket with all that chocolate…and peeps, of course!
And any belle would love to have this little beauty on her arm…
…doesn’t the pink just scream spring? It’s from Tory Burch (surprise)…available at Nordstrom
Or how about this on the wrist…
…the Michael Kors Golden Runway watch with a pink dial! We found it on Amazon at an awesome price! Click and see for yourself!
Now, for the fellas…we kinda like the idea of sprucing up his wardrobe with some spring-y options…and swimsuits are always in order this time of year!
For the little crowd, how about these Island Board Shorts from Gap…
or maybe this preppy little option from j crew…
And to dress him up a bit, we are loving this big-boy look…
…the Secret Wash gingham shirt, also from j crew comes in every color of the rainbow! Belles just love options!!
Now for the big fellas…maybe a little spring-y wardrobe addition or two…
…or a “not-your-everyday-ho-hum” tie? He will thank you when the ladies can’t take their eyes off!
And finally…we saved the absolute best accessory for last, belles…this might be a little something we “spring” for just for ourselves…
To. Die. For. Available at Amazon, this is the ultimate mode of transport for any belle ready to celebrate spring in style!!
Go for it, belles! Times-a-wastin’!
Fringe has been a big trend, but we think tassels may even be bigger…and not for nothin’ either because they can be a lot easier to carry off without looking like you’re trying to relive the 70’s!
A few of our favorites…
In the kicks department:
Here’s a little beauty that looks way more expensive that it is, making it virtually irresistible. From Nordstrom…
It’s no secret…we belles do love to make a statement with a shoe, and this one from shopbop surely fits the bill…and then some!
And we couldn’t resist throwing out an option for the baby belles, also from j.crew!
Movin’ on, belles…because we love a good pocketbook and tassels add just the right amount of sass…
This one from Rebecca Minkoff shows that this smart-cookie designer knows her way around a purse!
And we can’t leave Tory out! This cross-body from Tory Burch is cross-generational…meaning all the women in the family will be having hissy fits over this one.
And it wouldn’t be right to ignore the inside of the purse, now would it???
From Banana Republic…
Or how about this monogrammed little beauty (belles always love a monogram)!! Get it at Clare V…
And then there is always a phone case, ’cause the phone could use a little fashion boost, too! From Henri Bendel:
And our ears could always stand a little extra “something-something”. These two from shopbop are the perfect way to add a little pizzazz to a classic ensemble…
And, belles…bathing suit season is just around the corner, so how about adding a touch of whimsy to your cover ups???
A pareo from Revolve Clothing…
Another festive option to frolic in, also from revolveclothing
And let’s not forget that tassels can upgrade a patio, porch or party in no time flat.
Island love from etsy:
And another glorious accessory for zee home or fete from food 52:
So, belles…obviously, tassels aren’t just for loafers anymore!
Tassel on belles!
