Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend. My weekend was jam-packed (and lots of fun!). If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you already know I spent Friday and Saturday at AmericasMart for the Atlanta Apparel show (LOADS of fabulous pics coming soon!), and Sunday I was given an AMAZING opportunity to visit the Norcross Charming Charlie store to style a mannequin for a window display! Isn’t that awesome?!!!!
If you’ve been to Charming Charlie you already know the store is HUGE and full of jewelry, handbags, accessories, and clothing organized by color. There are SO. MANY. FABULOUS. pieces that it was nearly impossible to narrow them down. I wanted use them all! Ultimately, I was really inspired by all the Coachella Festival Fashion that’s currently popping up on all the blogs and fashion sites since Coachella started over the weekend. When I think of Coachella, two distinct looks come to mind– bohemian chic and rocker chic. Both are equally fabulous, but when I saw this orange pleated skirt, I knew I had to use it for my look…and I know I had to go the boho route. I added a simple applique racer back tee, and accessorized my look to the max with a pretty floral print scarf as a belt, a stone-encrusted statement necklace, a straw hat and bag, and over-sized sunnies inspired by the Prada’s Baroque style.
And of course, we can’t forget about the arm candy! A wrist (or two) full of gold, orange and green bangles and baubles picks up the color of the scarf beautifully. Charming Charlie also carries cute sandals and shoes, and a pair of jeweled burnt orange flip flops finishes off the look perfectly!
Oh! I almost forgot the most important part — the price point. Every pieces I used was under $40, with most jewelry ranging from $5 – $25, and clothing, handbags, and other accessories ranging from $10 – $40. Not bad at all, right?
