Whether it's called Hunter, Forest, Olive or Military, a deep green shade is perfect for a Fall bag.
I love wearing bracelets in the summer. They're easy, fun and a way to reflect my mood: a wristful of bangles and I'm boho, classic when I'm wearing charms, sporty with a braided rubber band. Best of all, they give me a chance to highlight the thinnest part of my body---my wrist!
Most of us still remember the old rule of matching our shoes to our purses. (Which may explain the enduring popularity of black purses...)

I'm a tall person. I have long hair. But for years I shied away from big statement necklaces, mistakenly thinking that they would be too much: too attention getting, too flashy.
