Boutique Accessories To Sweeten Your Easter Basket

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

We here at Local Hem love our holidays. They’re a great excuse to pick out trinkets for the people we love (and maybe grab a little something for ourselves too). When Easter rolls around we like to fill our baskets with two things: accessories and chocolate. Since our online boutiques don’t sell chocolate (though we’d never be opposed to that), we’ve rounded up some basket-ready accessories from our very own “Accessory Bunny.” Just look at this guy’s neck scarf: he’s no stranger to the finishing touches.

boutique accesories for easter

Here’s what Accessory Bunny is packing this Easter (in a vintage, leather suitcase no less):

  1. JoJo Big Bling Earrings (Duchess Boutique): Get playful with these colorful and sparkly earrings! Try one pair and you’ll love them so much you’ll come back for another color soon. Vintage Swarovski crystals and sterling silver posts. The pair pictured is in the color “Apple Green”, but there are plenty of other springtime hues to choose from.
  2. The Ropes Maine Portland Bracelet (The Closet Boutique): The Ropes Maine multistrand bracelet in lighter shades of green, pink and blue with bright neon green and darker blue ropes might just become a permanent fixture on your wrist. Neon green is the accent rope and gold hardware. The Ropes Maine are handmade in Maine using nautical rope and hardware. They have been featured in Lucky Magazine, elle.com and various fashion blogs.
  3. Peg + Dick “Flag Series III” Decorative Plate (She Boutique): When you have lovely accessories, you need to store them stylishly too – this Handmade decorative plate by Peg + Dick is from the Flag Series III Collection, and is perfect for displaying your goodies atop a dresser or nightstand.
  4. Elizabeth and James Watts Gold Sunglasses (Encounter Boutique): E&J’s spin on the classic aviator are perfect for year-round wear, but come in especially handy now that the days are getting longer. The Watts frame in gold features brown lenses, a double bridge, and contrasting brown tortoise rubber ear hooks. UV 400.

Freebird by Steven Haley Studded Boot

If you need something a little less country and a little more rock and roll, look no further than these Freebird by Steven Haley Studded Booties from Encounter Boutique in Saratoga Springs, NY. Rightly dubbed the “ultimate cool girl ankle boot.” Freebird’s Haley boot features a worn look, side buckles, and painted studs. Yeehaw.

Who Wore It Best? Current/Elliott ‘The Stiletto Jean’ in White Stars.

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

I love the printed jean trend, but can you realistically wear it into Fall? Not all of those floral patterns and bright colors are going to necessarily transition as beautifully as the leaves of Fall. Luckily, you can wear the Current/Elliott The Stiletto Jean in White Stars from Encounter Boutique year-round. Just pair the pants with a solid colored top or sweater! The inseam on these jeans (hence the name “The Stiletto) hits at the ankle, enabling you to show off your favorite heels or flats! Just take a cue from the slew of celebrities who have been spotted in these jeans lately!

Rachel Bilson, Sophia Bush and Khloe Kardashian all love the Current/Elliott The Stiletto Jean in White Stars from Encounter Boutique! These ladies show you that they can work with both heels and flats. Rachel and Khloe choose to roll up the jeans even further, demonstrating the softness of the material. The jeans are marked down, super comfy and transitional. What is stopping you?!
