Hello friends! I would like to take a few posts here to talk about how you can add a few simple accessories to your outfit to create a truly unique look that will draw compliments and will make you feel like a queen.
With the jewelry part of my business, I focus on creating unique, one of a kind pieces of jewelry that are composed of vintage costume jewelry pieces with new beads and findings. One of the things that bel monili is most known for is the collage necklace, which is a one of a kind statement necklace that features either vintage enamel flower brooches and/or vintage bauble earrings and pins. Each bel monili collage necklace is a unique statement piece that is unlike anything else you have ever seen. While some women may be a little bit intimidated by such a bold statement, I am going to show you how it can be as subtle or as bold as you would like.
In addition to handmade upcycled jewelry, bel monili carries a finely curated selection of women's clothing items that compliment my jewelry line and flatter/compliment the average woman's staple wardrobe pieces. In this post, we are talking about how to add a few bel monili items to add some special touches to your style.
One of my favorite style items is the lace bottomed top extender.
Worn alone or underneath another top, this lace bottomed tank top is universally flattering and available in sizes small through 2XL. This top runs generous in size, and you can comfortably size down 1-2 sizes depending on the length you would prefer.
In the summertime, I like to wear one as a top with a plain tank underneath. The lace hem is pretty and feminine and is beautiful on it own. While it is a tank, it is really a year-round piece. Here I have shown you how I layer a top extender underneath a plain striped top with black leggings. The top adds enough length to cover my rear (a MUST for me) and the lace trim peeks out to make the otherwise ordinary top look unique and special.
When wearing my typical black/white/gray clothing, I also like to layer in one of my signature collage necklaces. No matter how basic the outfit, the collage necklace brings something really special to the table and makes me feel like I am dressed and ready for the day.
