Fashionista Friday: Tina Dean Designs








Taking a note out of the Pantone 2013 Spring Fashion Trend book, and incorporating some of the hottest colors of the season into her designs, Tina Dean Designs is getting you on trend this season with fashionable ecochic accessories.

Poppy Red
African Violet
Tender Shoots

All colors that breathe life into your accessories arsenal, and ones that you won't want to miss out on.

The Poppy Red clutch features three black clay buttons that have a subtle gold fleck to them. Perfect for party hopping, a date night out, or just to add a splash of one of the prettiest tones of Spring 2013 into your wardrobe.





These handbags are like no other - expertly handmade by textile artist Tina Allen in her home studio. The Tender Shoots clutch features two hand painted sculpted clay buttons {by yours truly}, making each one completely different from the next!

Using delicate African violet purple bags, Tina created this clutch by upcycling plastic bags into a material known as plarn. Once it was crocheted into the perfect form, she finished off the closure with a hand painted violet and plum button. Absolutely beautiful, and it would look stunning at Easter brunch!

Pantone 2013 Spring Trending colors are setting the stage for some amazing designs at Tina Dean Designs. Bring ecochic into your fashionista wardrobe with TDD!

Sponsor Love: Wedding Accessories by Jacques Vert

Which wedding accessories do you choose for your wedding?

If you are planning to attend a wedding or perhaps you are getting married yourself, it isn’t always easy to find perfect wedding outfits because of the wide range of choice. On top of that are the accessories that are of importance as well. If you are unsure of which accessories to wear with your wedding outfit or when going to a formal lunch event, then it might be worthwhile for you to read this post. I have lined up some accessories that I believe would make a great addition to any occasion wear outfit.

Jewellery

When deciding upon what type of jewellery to choose, I’d recommend opting for less chunky jewellery such as this elegant fine black enamel and marcasite effect pendant necklace. The necklace is set on a silver colour chai with little ball beads and would look great with any wedding outfit.















Fascinators

For those who have never heard of this term, a fascinator is a fashionable headpiece that is often worn on special occasions. Fascinators come in various styles and are created by colourful feathers, flowers and other sorts of fabrics.











Often, these fascinators can be worn in two different ways. There are fascinators with combs attached to them which you have to stick in your hair in the opposite direction, ensuring the hairs are woven between the teeth of the comb. The other, more common, form is the headband fascinator which can simply be placed on top of the hair.

Purses

Finding the right purse to go with your outfit can often be a tricky task because you have to ensure that all your belongings fit in the bag (and we’ve got many things we put in our purses) whilst at the same time making sure that the colour is right.








This purse is an elegant fondant pink fabric clutch styled bag, with a curving flat to the front and satin draped twist detail to finish. You can combine this purse with a crème or black dress, or a similar colours dress.
