The Importance of Accessories

As I’m nearing the end of my stay here in Philly, I’m also getting to the bottom of my suitcase. I’m a bit of an over-packer but when it comes to everyday casual items I never seem to pack enough. While I might have secquined Alice and Olivia shorts, a silk Ted Baker jumpsuit, and a handful of cocktail dresses waiting to be worm, I’m pretty much down to the bare minimum in the daytime outfit options area. What else can a fashionista do when separated from her closet but shop accessorize. While the J Brand jeans and simple black top might have been a pretty basic choice, by throwing on my new Panama hat  (thank you Bloomies in Soho), hamsa necklace, black bow ring and an arm full of stacked bracelets, I was able to turn my outfit around for dinner at Parc.

      I think I must have been to Parc at least 4 times while I was back. I had a great time on Philly, esp the tax free shopping!
