Having a Moment with...

As i slowly build my accessory collection, there seems to be more and more variety. I have collected some fabulously unique pieces that are not only exotic and beautiful, but handcrafted as well. I have been noticing, lately, that many for these pretty pieces are actually not made in the USA. They're from around the world and made their way to me via gifts from my friends (thanks to all of the lovely ladies who thought of me when they traveled abroad). Sometimes, fitting these semi-edgy pieces (like the Indian necklace) into my preppy wardrobe is a challenge, but they end up being a great addition to my repertoire of accessories. I am really having a moment with these international accessories!

From an Indian Market

Grecian hand-painted disk earrings from Amour

Venetian glass earrings from some awesome neighbors

Hawaiian necklace from my mom

Indian Necklace


Cambodian Scarf

Indian Bag



As you can see, each piece can add a lot of personality and individuality to an outfit which is why I'm having such an obsession with them. Because these pieces are one of a kind, you can't get the exact copies of any of these, but I do suggest looking in various markets when you travel if you want to start your own collection. 
Good luck and happy hunting!

P.s, This is twirl's 200th post! i am so thankful to have evolved in both my blogging ability and knowledge as well as my style and taste level. Twirl has definitely been a catalyst for that so thanks to those who read, comment, follow, etc for keeping this team motivated to keep posting and never stop improving!

P.p.s, my heart goes out to all of those affected by what happened yesterday. It is truly a tragedy and shouldn't have happened to so many undeserving men and women. It did happen though and instead of trying to forget, let's remember and try to prevent a repeat of history. that is what yesterday is for: remembrance. Have a safe and happy week
