Accessories That Thrill Mikara - Week 7

Whew ! Its week 7 of #AccessoriesThatThrill Mikara... and thank y'all for sticking with it! I love me some accessories and sharing things I find along with sharing how I find these accessories. If you didn't view the accessories on my IG, Tuesdays and Thursday, you can view my blog on Mondays for the recap... And let's get STARTED

I think this clutch bag has SO much character and the person wearing this needs to have a certain type of demeanor/confidence to rock this bag; I felt like I would wear this bag with those intentions and more. I scouted this lovely piece of work on by AbeRuizDesign.

and loved how he mixed fashion with architecture together - I could tell he had an architect background before I researched the designer since I have a cousin that graduated from Architecture school. I def see myself wearing this bag but I would change the color theme especially to make the cut-off wool felt dimensions POP! I love bringing the best out of a drama piece. Until then, Ill be thinking of what colors would look great for my personal look...

"Mikara! I need a great necklace that imitates a choker..." (from my client going out to a bachelorette weekend full of festivities), and this was her final result. The color is everything and I'm pretty sure the fitting would be perfect for her; my client likes the "look" of a choker but does not like the fitting of it on her, so I provided her the option of a choker with an opening. I can't wait to see how it all pulls together ....

"I need something different and innovative...." and yet I satisfied another client. My male client has allowed me to give his look a 180 and he's loving the feedback he's been getting. One day he texted me and asked if there was another style of card holders besides the plastic or metal that use usually see. I never really come across another format but I was interested in searching. AND wooh-lahhhh, a wooden cardholder (with custom engraved name if you would like). He actually really loves the whole idea of matching his sunglasses and card holder and feels this would complete his makeup over look. I'm actually considering getting one for business cards - but mine would have to have a different shape since I have a square shape business card.
