#Accessories That Thrill Mikara // Week 22 Recap
Hey There! Glad we made it to week 22 for #AccessoriesThatThrill Mikara #thepersonalstylist. I have been getting some pokes in regards to some conservative accessories, so I dedicated this week to my conservative impressers – since I can be a bit over the top especially when it comes to accessories. Alright enough with that, lets get this accessory talk going!
Gold – you can never go wrong with wearing gold, whether you are a winter, summer, spring … gold goes with every one! Since I was getting some response on so meek accessories, I started to look for a nice sleek necklace. I wanted to look for a necklace because I looked back at my recent post on necklaces, and I a few of them are costly along with dramatic for those who are not bold when it comes to accessories. I came across this brand, Chapter Jewelry and saw a lot of unique jewelry that captures the conservative women who wants to slightly stand out. On a down day I would strongly consider wearing any of these pieces. The particular one I selected for my following to see is the Alleyway Necklace, this can be worn with a simple shirt or sweater and you can put this on with it – giving you a nice statement of chic-ness.

Your tools need lovin’ too! My client that has a business trip overseas inquired about this next accessory I didn’t even think to imagine – but I surely made it work. He is a very well-dressed business man for a construction company, but has a lot of little things floating around loosely. He hired me to help organize and tame them since he is no longer married – he was use to his wife doing that and now he is developing these skills through me. While we were organizing his items, I’ve fine he is a big shaving enthusiast, loves to keep things clean and neat. So he asked the question before I even suggested it to him ” .. is there a pouch for my shaving tools?” Of course there is, and if there isnt, I can get some designed for you. I first researched the accessory, and found it with no problem. The Leather Safety Razor Pouch by CRUX Supply Co. would be a perfect value to my client. This brand caters to the shaving/grooming enthusiasts out there. I’m sure my client will be a repeated customer for this brand.

Alright, I know I was suppose to keep is conservative but I needed to add a pop of color up in here – what did you except I LOVE BEING COLORFUL! For this new client, she wears black a lot since she is in the transition phase of losing weight. She spotted me via IG and saw how amazing I am in accessories so I went to work ! We met up and noticed she was uncomfortable with herself but really enjoys looking at fashion. I started to ask and enlighten her, and that started to changed the dimension of her current mind set.. ” What are you afraid of…. style is suppose to fun fitting for YOU not for them” As she started to loosen up, she gave me some great info on what she has a fetish for, rings. There we have it, get evidence on what I need to do to step her into being a style maven. The brand I paired her with is Studio Sophia Sophia , she has a wonderful and bright personality and I did not want to dim that down from her image. This brand will do a lot for her since she wears black 365 days and the accessories from this brand will brighten up her look with very little effort.

I don’t know what it is about watches on a man but I’m glad I have been getting some inquiries on men’s watches from my private clients. I first met this client from the Halloween venture, and he has been so much feedback, he wanted me to help him get another accessories. He’s super low-key ad simple so I suggested my go-to accessory for this male, a watch. To me, a watch now a days differentiates a boy from a man since we live in a very tech-savvy world. And from the conversation I had with him, that is what he is going for, he wants to gradually evolve his look. So we will be starting out with the watch (well secondly start out since he since wears the hat from Halloween). As I browsed through my Rolodex, I noticed I never used this brand and thought I would give it a try for him. Looking through the collection, I think he would enjoy the options he has on here since the colors are very mute for him. The one I selected Java by The Garwood, I felt would look superb with his hat he is still in love with, so I wanted to build around that item and keep him comfortable as he blossoms into a stylish man.
