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 been making a wishlist for Mother’s Day…shocker! Thought we would share some of our India Hicks picks for your shopping inspiration…
First…The Crown Jewels…
The Komboloi is just the right piece to help Mom chill
Keep Mom In the Loop
Keep her smellin’ fresh-n-fancy with this brilliant Pomander Ball necklace
Let her dance the night away in the Disco Volante earring
The Double O necklace…a statement-maker
And a belle must always be fully accessorized…
The Agra Tassel will help her keep up with her keys…stylishly, of course!
The Big Zipper
The classic Lady P handbag
The “with it” Dougal clutch
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!

For tall-drink-of-water-belle growing up in California, every bed had an electric blanket. So…for Christmas last year, everyone got one for their bed. Now this tip on how to clean an electric blanket will come in handy!
Belles can be cookie monsters…

And speaking of sweet tooth options…
Can’t you just taste it now?!
No more being ashamed of this taco addiction!
One word: Obsessed…
As you know, we have an on-going obsession with de-lovely Rebecca de Ravenel earbobs. Just take a gander at our most recent purchase…
However, we do realize that not every belle is up for the de Ravenel splurge, and that, of course, belles do love a bargain!
What a delight to our pocketbooks when one belle-neighbor leaned over the fence to tell us about the ALMOST EXACT dangles for our earring collection.
Available in several colors…
and for the grey-cious belle…
Ya might need them all!!
Shop til you drop!!
We have heard the buzz surrounding the Monica Vinader line of jewelry for a while, but we are beginning to hear more and more! The British designer has become quite the go-to for the Duchess of Cambridge and other celebs, giving her a bit of well-placed publicity…and causing us to take notice!
Some of our faves…
1 – the “Riva Kite” diamond drop earring
2 – the “Riva” diamond hoop ring
3 – the “Stellar” blue diamond/rose gold detachable ear jacket
4 – the “Siren” drop earring
5 – the “Baja” pave diamond bracelet
And bonus…prices range from $160 to about $1500 tops…so the entire line is within reason for a “fashionabelle” touch
Bling like a princess, belles!
We are loving the lush fabrics and colors of some of the items we have our eye on this fall! Intermix has some of our favorites…
1 – Nicholas Deep V Wallpaper dress
2 – Frame Le Velvet blazer
3 – Erickson Beamon Sage Multi Circle earrings
4 – Elizabeth Cole Multi Floral earrings
5 – Kenneth Jay Lane crystal cocktail ring
6 – Jimmy Choo Lacey 100 velvet pumps
You. Need. Them. All!!
For the remainder of September (JUST THIS MONTH), we can all customize our own set, belles!!! Do you know what this means?? Whatever color combination might tickle your fancy can be yours with just a few little clicks!!
We did some playin’ around…
We need help, please! Such a tough decision to make!! Input welcome and appreciated. (And let us know if you design your own)
