“Worship At The Altar Of The Accessory”

17 Jun

Who better to revisit about the importance of bold accessories than Iris Apfel (courtesy of a 2009 Nordstrom video). She wears the circle so well- from her signature glasses to blankets of monochromatic beads.

Ten Thousand Villages (fair trade artisan gifts from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East) has a fantastic selection of inexpensive chunky bead necklaces to mimic the look. Here’s a toned down way to recreate Apfel’s approach with all pieces under $40. You can snag sale items on the site for as little as $3.
