One Ring Knuckle Duster Pearl Clutch

Clutch bags are the epitome of classy. Their presence as an accessory exudes an air of elegance, and this pearl embellished one ring knuckle duster is no exception. Though the bag also comes in the ever handy black or white options, this peachy pink color is incredibly hot right now, especially when it comes to dresses and floral prints. It’s color and style evokes the softness of spring but isn’t limited to that season alone. This soft pastel can be worn throughout the year with timeless colors and pieces.

If you want to play up the color of this pearl embellished clutch, a dress in a matching rosy pink will do the trick. Lace or dresses with some drapery add a different textured element that both contrasts and compliments the shine and luster of this clutch. If you’re going for more of a contrast beyond texture and fabric, going with a medium toned grey dress works perfectly. The dark tone of this color offsets the softness of the pink as well as enhances it. A dark grey is softer than a jet-black and therefore provides a softer, more seamless contrast to the color. These two tones provide a smooth distinction from one another without being too stark, complimenting the other well. You can choose an all peachy pink ensemble or all grey, or you can mix it up, such as a soft pink dress and grey shoe and vice versa.

Considering the pink shade of this one ring knuckle duster, floral prints and patterns using the same color family will work perfectly as well, whether you decide to go with a dress, or a printed blazer over similarly colored blouse and pant. When it comes to jewelry, you have some matching options. Rosy gold is totally in right now, and whether you pair this clutch with a statement necklace, a chunky bangle, or a set of earrings, the rosiness will compliment the handbag while imitating its pearly luster. Speaking of pearly, simple white pearls, whether necklace and/or earrings, work just as well and stand out a little more against the pink.

This color and style is appropriate for all seasons. While the floral nature of its color instantly evokes spring, which can easily translate into summer, it’s soft, pearlescent quality is suitable for the glimmer of winter months as well. Playing up the pink and texture of this handbag instantly creates an aura of romance year round. Add this beautiful cocktail clutch from Chicastic to your wardrobe now!

Styling Your Holiday Portrait

Constructing holiday portraits is a difficult task every year no matter who you’re taking them of or with. Here are some tips to help make the process easier and to make a statement, fashion-wise and family-wise, that will stand the test of time.

The holidays are fast approaching and aside from gift brainstorming, a lot of us are finding ourselves putting in just as much effort thinking of our holiday portraits. Whether they’re with our family, friends, significant others, pets or solo, a holiday photo is how you’ll share this year with extended friends and family and remember 2013. But what to do, and what to wear?

If you’re thinking of a holiday portrait, chances are, you already have some ideas for your outfit in mind. Gather your favorite old family photos, magazine clippings, online finds and your own fave wardrobe pieces and begin storyboarding. Depending on who you’re planning on taking this momentous photo with, they may offer ideas as well. Decide on what that special “holiday feel” is for you and your fellow photo-takers and decide on a color family, or color palette, as the foundation for your photo. Remember, there’s still a lot of room for play here. While red and green are prominent, wintry colors and jewel tones are also indicative of the season.

Remember, this is a photo that you’ll want to cherish with loved ones for years to come. Try to pick timeless yet flattering pieces, and throw in some unique accessories. That way, your outfit will last the test of time, while your accessories and smaller embellishments will remind you of 2013 and what made this year so distinctive, in style as well as memory. Not only that, but you’ll still be fashionable when you send out those photos this year!

Once you’ve got your theme and outfit down pat, convene with the rest of the cast. If you’re posing with others, you’ll have to make sure your photo will be visually coordinated but not overly matching like an awkward family photo. Communicate with everyone else and gather everyone’s ideas and make sure you’re taking a holiday photo you’ll all enjoy and not regret with embarrassment in the years to come. Finally, when you’ve all decided on a shared color palette or style theme, gather round and smile! Remember, this photo isn’t just about style or how well constructed the end result is. While these factors matter, the photo is more about being with those you love and sharing the joys of friendship and family. Before you get too crazy micromanaging the minor details of your holiday photo, remember to relax and have fun and let that holiday spirit shine through.

How to choose the perfect clutch bag?

Women’s fashion world is so dynamic. Fashion trends, styles, colors, outfits and accessories change every day. And it can be so hard to keep up with all current trends. Clutch Bags have been in fashion since the Victorian Era or even since forever. It is a tiny thing yet so many different styles are out there. It is a small piece of accessory that has become as important as the dress in formal and casual wear these days.

These clutch bags have so many different aspects that you need to determine before you decide which type to use for a particular event which is why I decided to put together this list to help with this situation. We have so much to plan when it comes to planning a big event, or even when a girl is attending an event; she has so much to do. Her dress, her hair, her nails, her makeup, the right shoes etc. so at least help with the accessory part of the outfit. When it comes to planning your evening bag for an event most important factors to consider are as follows –

1. Formal or Casual Occasion Evening Bag – You have to first determine whether the event is a formal one or a casual one. Because anything can be too casual for a formal and too formal for a causal event, so we need to be careful when we choose. When we first know it’s a formal event we can choose accordingly – dressy purses, satin clutches, purses with rhinestone and crystals etc. When it is for a casual event we can look at – patent leather clutches, wrist let purses, clutch bag with cross body strap, clutches with metal studs etc.

2. Color – Once we know which occasion it is for, then we decide on the color we need. Whether you want to go with the same color clutch bag as your dress for the event or you want to do a contrast and choose something like your shoes. Suppose you are wearing a black dress, you can choose a red clutch bag and red heels to break the monotony of black and stand out in the crowd.

3. Size – Very important is to know what size evening bag you want to carry. If your dress is short, always carry a small purse with it. You need to know what all you would need to carry in your purse when determining the size.
