Crystal Stud Peacock Motif Hard Box Clutch

Using an accessory as a focal point can be beneficial when it comes to creating different looks. Create multiple styles of outfits with this peacock hard case clutch.

Accessories possess a world of power. They can compliment an outfit, make certain elements of an ensemble pop more effectively, and they have the power to steal the show if desired. An entire outfit or look can be altered with the use of accessories, whether you are using jewelry, shoes, scarves, hair accessories, hats, purses, or any other number or combination of items to complete your look. Fashion accessories are a lot of fun as well, you can choose to use the piece to make a statement, use it to inspire the look and color scheme of your look, or use it to invoke a certain feel to your outfit. This  can do any of these aforementioned things and do so with class.

The peacock motif itself is fabulously vintage. It hearkens back to the speakeasy and underground club scene of the roaring 20’s and adds a hint of this old school glamor no matter what you’re wearing. Using this clutch as a focal point of inspiration for a formal outfit seems the most logical. Depending on the color of bag you choose, gold, silver or black, you can match it with a metallic or sequined dress. Or you can simply use it to accent a vintage styled or retro find dress in most colors, though jewel-tones work particularly well (especially those found in a peacock’s feathers, such as teal, deep blue and purple). Use rhinestone studded cocktail jewelry to complement this clutch and further push that romantic vintage feel.

Another way to use this piece is to do so in stark contrast. Pair this clutch with a sleek, modern dress in a simplistic color or in a bright and bold statement color like radiant orchid. This way, the bag will stand out and make a statement that offsets the dress in both style and design while complimenting it at the same time. The contrast in the material of the dress, whether it’s satin or any other dress that offers a sleek silhouette, and the textured surface of this hard box clutch, from its grid like rhinestone insets to its large peacock motif closure. When worn in this style, the peacock closure can make a larger impact, standing out against the smooth material of your ensemble.

There are plenty of ways to manipulate a statement piece to create multiple looks. Mix and match, experiment and see what works. You never know what combinations may work out for you and make your next signature style.

You can find this peacock motif hard box clutch at Chicastic.

Peacock Purses

Peacocks are beautiful birds and they inspire fabulous clutch purses!

A design influenced by peacocks usually means it’s colored in vibrant blues, golds, and greens.  A perfect example is this sequined peacock knuckle duster clutch in green.  These classic peacock colors aren’t your only option.  As long as the eye of the feather is maintained, the overall color of the bag can be changed and still clearly show the inspiration.  Try it in fuchsia, gold, purple or silver to mix it up a little.

Coloring isn’t the only way to get a peacock look though.  The shape of this bird is very elegant (especially when it’s studded with rhinestones).  If you want just a little bling, try the suede rhinestone stud peacock cocktail clutch.  It comes in red, fuchsia, purple, blue, and black.

Need a little more sparkle?  Try the mesh rhinestone peacock hard box clutch.  It comes in royal blue, but also sophisticated neutrals of gold, silver, black, and white.

And if you have the attitude that there can never be too many rhinestones, then the crystal stud peacock motif hard box clutch is the right choice for you.  It comes in black, gold, and silver.

New Years’ Eve Party Ideas

New Year’s Eve is the last big night of the year to celebrate. Here are some simple tips to bid 2013 farewell and greet 2014 in style.

New Year’s Eve is all about going out with the old so we can usher in the new, and we all want the year to go out on a high note, right? While we still have a few more months of  winter to look forward to, your New Year’s Eve party can play up the glittery season with some positive sparkle to see the year off right.

First thing’s first with any party: What is your theme going to be? We all know it’s a New Year’s Eve party, but what kind of tone are you looking to set for the last day of 2013? Are you looking to have a flirty cocktail party with all of your guests dressed to the nines? Are you going to have a classy midnight dinner party? Or are you going for some more casual fun? Regardless of your theme, glitter and sparkle are welcome in any kind of decor. Recall the big ball dropping and the style of that classic Times Square scene that your guests will be gathered around to watch, no matter what party theme you choose, counting down the final moments of 2013. Consider stringing up lights to mimic the night sky and keep the lights dimmed, this way your shimmering decor can catch the light and create that perfect magical, wintry atmosphere. Play up or play down the glitter and glam depending on your theme, perhaps use silvers and golds if you’re going for a more formal dinner party. With some holiday shine, you can glam up the cold and play up the New Year and bring Times Square to your party.

When it comes to food, it also depends on your theme. If you’re having a fun cocktail party, serve glittering cocktails using champagne and add some bold color with different juices, such as cranberry or orange. Serve fun hors d’oeuvres to keep your guests up and about socializing. If you’re having a calmer, classy dinner party, consider serving simpler drinks with light but filling dishes. No matter what you choose, make sure to have plenty of champagne on hand!

As far as activities go, it’s always important to keep things positive and fun. After all, this is the last day of the year and you want to end it right! Games like charades or card games are always a party favorite, but ones that incorporate New Year’s resolutions are great to have to. Have everyone write down a wish, or however many you want, for the new year on a slip of paper and use the pieces as confetti when the ball drops.

Another and most important thing to think about is your party outfit. You can always wear your little black dress but accessorize it with affordable and fashionable things like a nice rhinestone stud evening bag, dangle earrings and bracelets etc.

It’s important to have fun and to get everyone excited for the year to come. When spent with close friends and family, any celebration will set the perfect tone for the year to come. To find great accessories for your New Years’ Eve Party outfit, visit Chicastic now.
