{Accessories Lust} Mi Asunta

mi asunta fall 2012 collection

While working on a fashion piece for an eco-luxe website I write for, I came across the accessories line, Mi Asunta. Let’s just say taking a peek at their jewelry collection is a quick way to banish any thoughts of eco-friendly being all about the hippie chic. It’s hot. The fact that the line is handcrafted out of dead stock chain and vintage components is a total bonus.

How to wear over-the-knee boots

One of my favorite reasons to adore fall is that we can finally wear all our cute boots! From ankle to mid-calf and knee-high varieties, I don’t discriminate. I just loooooooove boots. This season is all about thigh high and over-the-knee boots which I’ve blogged about in the past. But for some reason this is one trend I’ve noticed most are scared of.

Sure, if you do it wrong you’ll totally end up with the Pretty Woman effect. And even when I wear my very new and very favorite gray Sam Edeleman over-the-knee-boots, I’m always met with the following expression:

Blank stare

Puzzled look

Eyebrow wrinkle

and then…

“Cute boots.”

They’re versatile, and they’re amazing. If you’re afraid it’s too agressive, try a flat boot similar to some of the pairs pictured below. Wear them with jeans, leggings, tights, skirts and dresses too. Just be sure you aren’t showing excessive amounts of skin so you aren’t mistaken for a streetwalker.

Are you rocking OTK boots this season??

What to wear to a summer wedding

Wedding season is definitely here! And it seems as if the question all my friends are asking as of late is what to wear to that summer wedding?

Summer weddings are such a great excuse for a bright, printed or whismical dress. And even though there are a few black dresses posted (hey, you can never go wrong with a nice, black cocktail dress), there’s plenty of options this season to truly dazzle.
