Hello Spring! Or at least it felt like it for a New York minute. Life has been full of excitement, hard work and lots of adventure. I’m very excited for some of the news, stories and beauty to come on Accessories Gal and E.Kammeyer Accessories.
I’ve been deep in research for my next collection. I’m trying something a bit new and different. The next collection will be featuring some new materials I’ve never worked. There will even be a little something in my emerging men’s collections. While scouring the Internet and scouting a lot of street style, my current obsession is a the flared trouser. I’ve always loved a great flared leg. It’s come and gone, and I will be the first to stand up and say I’m pumped that it’s back. These aren’t the flared denim of my high school days though, they’re a bit more refined, a little more flared and the rise is scooched up a few inches (thank god). I’ll be honest, I’m just not a low rise gal anymore.
On this fine Saturday afternoon I decided to take my new flared trousers out for a spin in a very Persian inspired outfit. Visions of Paris still dance through my head from my recent nuptials in France this last May. I’m most definitely still feeling the French vibe.
I’ve always been a bit of a more is less kinda girl when it comes to bracelets. My husband has had a good laugh watching me spend up to 5 minutes taking off all of my jewelry to get in bed. I took a different approach today and let my new time piece do all the talking. I love this menswear inspired watch (heck I think this may even be the men’s version, I do have big hands). Daniel Wellington watches really caught my eye this fashion week with their simplistic, classic design. Plus you can change out the straps to match the wrist stack of the day. The team at DW was super cool to extend a 15% discount to Accessories Gal readers. Just use the code EKAMMEYER at Danielwellington.com.
Inspired by a few of my girlfriends I decided to test out a choker instead of my standard long necklaces. This isn’t quite the choker of our 90’s day’s, and I’m loving the elegant update. To be completely honest, this is an easy one to pull off. I work with leather trims in my collection, so had this sitting around my studio. But if you are so inclined, head down to 38th st in the garment district and you can snag a bit of leather twine for yourself. If not in NYC, it’s an easy thing to pick up at any fabric or trimmings store. I added a dash of lace and a cheeky little hat to finish the look.
Until next time! xoxo, Emily
