You’ve heard me tout the fine art of creating balance and harmony with regards to assembling outfits and accessorizing. In fact, I talked about it a bit a few days ago here. As it turns out, this gal believes there are exceptions.

I’m wearing so many accessories today it should be called “excessorizing!”

I’ve got the whole enchilada going on: an ethnic necklace, a long beaded necklace, long feather earrings, thin woven bracelets and a wooden ring. I supposed I could have added a tiara to really top things off but I don’t have one. Oh, but if I did… So, why would I tell you one thing and do another?

It’s still about balance. The blouse I’m wearing is long and flowing with a dark blue pattern over bright orange. The short necklace is really the one you notice, it lays on the open area of the “V”.

The longer beaded necklace almost acts as a trim by following the shape and cut of the front almost perfectly. I used it the way I would a scarf. The long feather earrings blend into my hair and are not very visible. The three woven bracelets are incredibly thin and light, they connect to the wooden ring subtly. If I had short hair and wore a plain lightly colored top, it would be total chaos. Instead, I played with the visual noise to create subtle points of interest.

Wood ring

This is a photo of the wooden ring I wore today which I posted previously on Instagram. Instagram is a totally fun photo capturing and sharing app for iPhones. If you’re already on, let me know so that I can check out your pictures. I’m “flyingfabu”.
