It’s that time of year again, belles! Those babies are graduating (they’re barely out of nappies…right?!) and it’s time to reward their amazing accomplishments, celebrate their achievements and send them on their merry way. Stumped?? Well…we have some India-inspired ideas for you…
The Firefly will let her shine, shine, shine (and keep the necessities on hand)!
The Flat Stanley pouch…don’t let her forget her inner child!
For her extended excursions…maybe she needs the whole kit-n-kaboodle with the Riviera Duffle, the Baby Riviera and the wash bag…’cause bein’ a bag lady ain’t a bad thing! (Shown in rapeseed yellow, also available in poppy and palm)
The Gypsy Dancer earring…may she always remember to dance!
The Winning Streak necklace…because her winning streak has just begun
Wrap it up, belles!
We have fallen in love with some of style-maven Hicks’ creations. Here are just a few that might tickle your fancy as well…
Let us walk you through this bevy of beauties…
The ears have it…
Left to right: The Letitia Hoop is an update to an old classic…which every belle must have in her repertoire. The Disco Valante is a danglin’ stunner that will shine like a disco ball (perfect when a belle wants to grab some attention). And for the “edgy-belle”…the Pyramid Stud says “yea, I’m all that…and more”
There’s a Junkanoo Tassel to suit all styles and tastes. Ya might need one in every color…’cause you never know what mood might strike. Just sayin’
Every belle needs a Treasure Box, and this one bumps it up just a bit, “island style”. And speaking of…Island Style…what belle doesn’t love flipping through a beautiful hardcover for a few “take me away” moments in a room scented with India’s Casuarina Room Spray? (we can smell the beach now!)
And let’s talk about the gold standard!! The Gold Crackle Firefly is perfect for keeping up with all of your little treasures while the Gold Crackle Insider handles the bigger haul with ease…in enviable style, of course. And finally…the gold vermeil Legacy Letter collection is the perfect little adornment that quietly says “this is who I am…and I like it”. Beautifully arranged letters from A-Z (well almost…sorry Quinn and Ursula) dangle from a dainty adjustable-length chain…just right for all ages, sizes & styles. Our fave would be the AAAA of course!
Hop to it, belles!

It’s coming…ready or not! Christmas is just a few short weeks away, and those gifts aren’t going to buy themselves! We figured we would brainstorm some kick-ass ideas for you…’cause that’s what belles are for…
We have some ideas for him, her, the techies, the hostess…and we will share them all this week as we prepare to enter the “vortex”. First up:
Some ideas for her…
Ya know how we are always saying, “remember who you are and where you came from”?? These will help with that:
From A. Jaffe:
Choose any location in the world and A. Jaffe will engrave the map and place a diamond where “X marks the spot” for where her heart is (or should be)…(there’s a less expensive sterling version as well)
And from Coordinates Collection (above…we’ve told y’all about these before) use the coordinates of that special place to create a piece that will be all hers
From our fave belle-friend-owned jewelry store, Croghans, in Charleston, this crowning glory of a ring (above) is perfect for the princess or regal matriarch.
From Nordstrom she will love these Stila “sweet kisses”…an excellent stocking stuffer!
From Shopbop, the Shrimps “Abatha” faux fur coat will keep her warm
Stay tuned…there’s more to come!

We’ve talked about the clutch before, belles, (remember this?) but we want to be sure you were listening!! These little stylish bags are perfectly polished all alone for those “pulled-together” moments…holding all of the necessities without screaming for attention…but are small enough to pop into the big day bag for the belle on-the-go. (Speaking of that day bag, one of us had someone call hers a “samsonite” the other day! Time to downsize? Probably not 😉
Here are a few of our faves for fall…
The Alexander Wang Dumbo
From India Hicks…
From Clare V….
How could a belle possibly go wrong??!
And for some local options…
From Cone & Coleman Collection on Main Street in Greenville:Great texture…great colors!
From Twill on Augusta Road:Three separate pouches to snap together or use separately…brilliant!!
From Muse Shoe Studio:Perfectly polished for sure! for a little walk on the wild side…just sayin’
And from Savvy…(for some serious retail therapy):
A belle-ringin’ two-fer!! Both of these are due in-store soon, ready for your fall updates!
Clutch ’em while you can, belles!
