Shop: Cross-body | Clutch | Tote | Necklace (one, two) | Bracelet (one,two) | Backpack | Earrings (one, two) Everyone needs a couple staples in their accessories drawer and closet. Things that you can wear everyday and things that you can wear on a special occasion. The India Hicks Lifestyle Collection has all of that, this is the main reason I became a India Hicks Style Ambassador. A couple staples you need are the perfect cross-body for everyday (I love this one here), a tote to carry work files and your computer, and then a clutch when go out at night.
What other statement pieces do you need, you ask? Well jewelry, that is! An awesome everyday statement is the legacy letter necklace ( I linked the “A” here, obviously for Absolutely Alli, but there are many other letters to choose from in gold and sliver). A necklace with a little more flair is this Free Spirt, it definitely will make a statement. If you are like me you always have on earrings when you leave the house, I like these studs for everyday and these to be a little more dressed up.
I always like a little arm candy to dress up my outfits. I am really into gold jewelry lately so this cuff is to die for, but if you are more into leather this one is for you. If you want to be a little bit more understated then the hook bracelet is what you are looking for.
“I have too many handbags”, said no one ever! I personally love a good handbag and think they are a great way to accessorize an outfit. Being an India Hicks Style Ambassador I am partial to this great handbag collect. Check out my new YouTube video below or here that details many of my favorite bags in this line. Also I paired many of them with different outfits, check them out and shop below.
You haven’t been to Kentucky if you haven’t hung out on a chicken and horse farm, which is exactly what I did when I met with creative Christine Robey of Barenaked Leather, a boho chic leather handbag and accessory company that specializes in rustic unique pieces that speak to your inner hippie soul. Many pieces complete with fringe and equestrian accents, constructed by Christine who likes to be hands on with the whole project from start to finish. How hands on?? Well, Christine utilizes wild deer and elk skin from local hunters. Using all parts of the animal she taught herself how to tan animal hide, which eventually sparked Barenaked Leather. She takes these pieces and turns them into leather handbags, guitar straps, jewelry, and other beautiful items. She has also expanded into metal work, making copper jewelry and accents for her leather pieces.
You can see Barenaked Leather’s designs on Facebook or Instagram. Also check out the photo shoot below that I styled with many of her beautiful pieces that included a cross body handbag, copper statement necklace, and a copper and leather bracelet. Enjoy!
