Unique Upcycled Accessories For Women
If you are heading out for a night on the town, wearing unique upcycled accessories for women will make you standout. If you are going to go out for the evening, why not find ways to make the night one to remember? When you are heading out to a party, dinner or a movie, there are steps women take to be c fashion forward diva. Here are a few things a girl can do to make sure you stand out in the crowd!
- One really great tip is to either make your eyes or your lips more dramatic, but you should never to both. If you choose to add to your eye makeup, choose a darker shade than you would wear during the day and if it has a hint of glitter, even better! If you choose to focus on your mouth, use a darker shade of lipstick and don’t forget your complimentary lip pencil. Be sure to throw your lipstick in your bag for touch ups throughout the evening.
- A pair of shoes can make or break an outfit. First and foremost, be sure not to test run your new heels for a night of dancing!! It is best to buy your shoes with enough time to break them in first. If you are wearing that little black dress, why not add an unexpected pop of color with your shoes? Try a heel in a gorgeous deep shade of ruby red or a maybe a strappy sandal in a royal purple?
- Find the right purse for the event. If you are going to an outdoor concert you will probably carry a different bag than a night at the ballet. Just like shoes, your accessories can also make or break an outfit. If you are going to a romantic dinner with your favorite man, don’t carry your big oversized tote you use as a diaper bag during the day!! You should carry a purse that will fit your essentials for your night out.
Cool Purses Made From Recycled Materials
When you step out, you may consider carrying cool purses made from recycled materials. There is no better way to stand out (in a good way) than to carry a purse that is a conversation starter! A great store that sells a line of incredibly modern and unique accessories is Escama Studio. The word Escama means fish scales in Portuguese and that concept developed into accessories for women made from recycled aluminum drink tabs! Using a crochet technique from Brazil, the purses from Escama Studio are made by hand in Brazil by women’s collectives. To add a personal touch to their purses, each one carries a tag with the name of the artist who crafted the purse. You can go to the Escama Studio website and read more about your artist! How cool is that? I love my Amelia bag ($75.00) from Escama Studio. The bag is lightweight and is made incredibly well. It is apparent the women, who make these bags, take their time and pay close attention to detail. This bag is just prefect to put your ID, lipstick, car keys and cash and have a great night out!
