#Accessories That Thrill Mikara // Week 6 Recap
Here we are again, another wonderful week of #AccessoriesThatThrill recap. Thanks for tuning in and an extra big thanks to those who follow me on IG (@MoreMikara) when I post the accessories every Tuesdays & Thursdays. Let’s get to the accessory talk…
Since I have ventured into the bridal fashion industry, I had the pleasure of connecting with people attending wedding or apart of the bridal party; one guest attending a wedding next month asked me to help her look AMAZING – since she doesn’t have a date. An idea came to my mind and she was open to it. I don’t experience this so, I said why don’t you have a very playful yet flirt hair accessory – and she LOVED the concept. If you seen me lately, I went back to being bald – my typical look, the buzz cut. I’m not too much into hair accessories because hair is really not my “thing” but I do keep it in mind for any of my clients. I started searching for hair accessories and was not finding anything alluring. SO when I was on Facebook I saw a post of Black-Owned business you should be following on Etsy, and Flowers From Fatima was one of the brands. I browsed through the collection and this teal blue was actually the color I had in mind for her to wear. Once I gathered some dresses and showed her the 3 – Teal Blossom Bobbies, she was sooooo thrilled about this item, I think she loved all of the products on the site. I had to share, especially to all of the hair enthusiast.

Color…. is in the air, and when my client asked for soft spoken yet fashionable bowtie for his meeting, I went STRAIGHT to Rock Avenue Bowties. I am not really a bowtie kind of gal but this brand has some very sleek ones! There was one particular bowtie this brand had maybe a year ago, that had lace, (it was ultra sexy) but its not there anymore. Anyways, this tie, Mr. Sentimental, is beautiful and it will make a statement in his appearance and I’m sure he’ll make a statement in his meeting.
If you want to know more about Rock Avenue, check out the bowties, neckties and pocket square (another collection I love)

If you haven’t noticed, color combinations, and bold colors is my thing! My male clients loves my eye for it and also loves the attention he is getting. I found this bad boy lurking on Instagram, King Kravate products are mainly suiting wear (necktie, bowtie, lapels,tie clips and pocket square). He ALL about making a statement and I was positively sure the Apache Loafer would satisfy his needs and it certainly will (when it arrives)

I was approached by an older woman (an age I did not think would ask me to dress them), and she could tell I appreciated the dressing in the old days, the way I had my scarf and brooch together but I had a more modern twist to it. So she hired me to go scarf shopping, which I thought was extremely exciting! I can tell she is a very fashionable woman and wants to maintain that status, so I mixed up where I was getting her scarves – since that was her “thing” in her wardrobe. I grab a few fabrics, so it can easily be turned into a square scarf, I shopped at some vintage shops and searched online; I found this lovely one. This scarf, I feel like any age can wear this scarf and still get a different vibe whatever age you are.
