Advanced Details

One of the biggest trends in street style photography is capturing great detail shots and accessories. The ladies I photograph all tell me that accessories have the power to transform an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. These women have had time to amass wonderful adornments and can easily mix and match them with any outfit. What are your favorite accessories?

Most of my favourite accessories are things that I make or thrift. I absolutely love scoring a funky purse that likely can't be found in too many other places, or when I find an awesome pair of statement earrings or a chunky necklace at a thrift. There is nothing better than dreaming up a story of where it came from and who wore it.

I love making statement necklaces. I recently made one that was inspired by some of the ladies on Advanced Style who wear turquoise pieces. I will have to post it. soon. I think turquoise is such a bold colour and works well with so many outfits. The more original, the more I love it and hold it near and dear.

I love it when people ask me questions about my accessories! This site has been a marvelous inspiration.

I've collected vintage rhinestone jewelry for years, and I wear one piece every day now, but perhaps when I'm of an advanced age, I'll be brave enough to mix and wear more pieces at once.

I love the woman wearing the bright Bakelite? bangles!

Krista said...

I love the first gal in all her purple, but the robot ring is my fav. I love all these women for their ability to be beautiful at any age!

Karletta said...

Vintage scarves and bakelite bangles are my favorite accessories. Love the clicking sound that the bangles make and the feel of soft silk around my neck.
I am inspired daily by this blog. Thank you.

I love the daring and the insouciance. Few younger women have this combo.

You're my new hero, Ari, but I do think the next step is a guide for men on how to see and share these ladies' effulgence for themselves :)

{I'll bet you've got some anti-war crusaders in the mix, no?!?]

Hittade din hemsida och bestämde sig för att använda en snabb läsa, inte vad en brukar göra men trevligt ett. Kul att se en blogg för någon förändring som inte är fullt av spam och skräp, och i själva verket gör någon mening. Hur som helst, underbar skriva upp.

The classy black & white outfit, especially the white, crouched mittens from the fifties.
Somewhere in my attic I have a similar pair. Tomorrow I'll crawl up the ladder and go searching for mine in one of the old trunks.

Bärbel said...

Ny absolute favourite ring is the black star in the 3rd picture! I know how to make this and never thought of wearing it as a ring. I love DIY and hate the fashion dictate. These ladies show me that you can wear whatever you like, as long as you make a statement. Thanks, Baerbel

PS: The star is called "Froebelstern" in Germany, I couldnt find any translation.

Seth,

I just found your blog through Blogger Buzz while trying to create my magazine view.

What a brilliant concept, obviously many people feel the same way! I just marked your blog to follow.

Not since I had the pleasure of living in Hong Kong, have a met someone embrace the beauty of elders. I especially love this, because I am one of them!
