Shoes and Earrings Relate

When you are getting dressed, do you ever think ... these earrings go great with these shoes?




It's so true! Shoes and earrings are related. All the components of your outfit make a small statement that add up to the total look and tell your story for the day. 

Jewelry tells a story for me because I was a designer for so many years. I went on market trips to NY and Atlanta with boutique owners so that I could start creating appropriate jewelry for the lines they were buying long before they arrived in the stores.  Accessories that are not so much matching but complementing in color and attitude complete a look.

Think about the attitude of the pieces you are putting together. For example the navy strappy sandals say evening wear as do the navy drop earrings. The T-Strap suede shoe says fashion forward and a little daring... so do the suede hoop earrings. 

Accessories from head to toe should speak the same language. 

I hope that the hurricane has now passed and that you and your loved ones are safe. 




Thank you for reading!

I'm brand new to your blog and I love it! Can you recommend sources for earrings similar to the ones you show? I'm not a jewelry crafter, so I have to buy retail. Thanks again for your wonderful post.
