New in Stores: SAAKO

We have fallen head-over-Loeffler-heels for the newest addition to the Sassanova product family. SAKKO scarves...or neklaces have hit the stores and are quickly heading home with happy fashionistas who have big fall/winter plans for them.

Add them to a basic "denim and T-shirt" combination and step aside as the compliments pour in.

Are you Team Scarf or Team Necklace? What will you wear yours with?

...we are Team SAAKO...and we will be wearing ours with EVERYTHING.


We Enjoyed This: Inslee, The Sketch Book

Some funny advice from the lovely Inslee Haynes on how to accessorize...and how her attempt at the "stacking" trend went! We love that she says:

I’ve always been impressed by people who can wear a lot of accessories at once, particularly a lot of bracelets, but recently my appreciation for the art of accessorizing has turned into a need to try it myself.
So i went and put all my bracelets on at once.
…And it did not work.
Apparently, accessorizing the arm party is rocket science.
Stop by her blog or website and check out the incredible things she is doing. What a talented woman...and from D.C. to boot!

Something Beautiful to Share

Just because there are 75mph winds doesn't mean we can't enjoy a good feather mini. Can I get an amen?

Trunk Show: Margaret Elizabeth

Is that the roar of Baltimore Grand Prix engines we hear?

Forgive our disinterest in fast cars and checkered flags...but we have more exciting news! We will be hosting a Margaret Elizabeth Trunk Show to celebrate the holiday weekend (and the influx of handsome Italian race car drivers)!

We are diligently are waiting by the door for a HUGE shipment of gorgeous jewelry designed by San Fransisco-based artisan Meg Galligan. Hurry in, the trunk show pieces will be in Baltimore for a limited time, as you can see...the weekend is all about speed!

Try This Trend

If you're like us, you have trouble each morning deciding who will make the accessory cut for the day. Will it be your favorite beaded bracelet from last-year's vacation? Your grandmother's vintage watch? The bangle you saw, loved and had to have?

Fret no more...and embrace the ultra-wearable trend of stacking! It's a great way to incorporate your favorite pieces, without looking (or sounding) like Xena the Warrior Princess.

Layer your baubles based on your day-- Incorporate a watch while at the office, a family heirloom with plenty of history (to discuss over lunch) and add extra bling in the evening accompanied by a great cocktail ring...the possibilities are endless! Sassanova stores have no shortage of fun layers to stack, add and enjoy, check out our favorites (currently in stores):

Marlyn Schiff Hammered Bangle, $25

Gorjana Studded Graham Wrap, $55
