Happy Fall! Autumn has arrived, and there is no better time to introduce some fun, fall finds that I hope you enjoy. I really enjoy wearing a necklace and wear one almost daily. My latest, go-to necklace has been the Avery Lariat necklace by Kristalize Jewelry; kristalizejewelry.com. After years in the fashion industry, owner Krista Lovelady, began Kristalize Jewelry in 2012 to create beautiful and affordable pieces for everyone.
I have worn this necklace all Summer and will be wearing it right through the Fall season. I receive lots of compliments on the look of the necklace, which is versatile and looks great with open necked tops.
Kristalize has a wide variety of styles including bohemian, classic, edgy and all in all unique looks. Besides necklaces, they sell bracelets, great statement earrings which also happen to be on trend right now as well as stackable bracelets.
The Sweat-O-pause cooling scarf will help everyone during the unpredictable temperature swings of Fall and throughout the year for any ladies who suffer from “power surges.”
Sweat-O-pause was established by Renee Hanson when she came up with a fashionable scarf that, when wet, cools up to 30 degrees below skin temperature. The cooling scarf can be used as a headband, scarf, or wrapped around your wrist. Carry it with you, and it’s there when you need it!
I own the Bermuda blue scarf, and the color is perfect for Fall. I wear it with a plain white v-neck t-shirt or a chambray light blue shirt and jeans, as a scarf or around my wrist. It adds a nice splash of color and cool (literally) style.
We all want to be fashionable and do our part for the collective good, and Dona Bela Shreds line of environmentally-friendly accessories is truly unique. Dona Bela Shreds is a fashion accessory line that upcycles textile remnants & designs them into unique, one-of-a-kind creations. All Shred neckwear designs and color combinations reflect current fashion trends and are designed in line with seasonal color palettes.
You can use the Dona Bela Shreds Band as a headband or a necklace depending on the length. I wore this necklace with more casual attire but some of the longer shred designs look great for office attire as well. It makes a unique, environmentally friendly gift for that special someone and as we know, the holidays will be here before you know it.
With Autumn comes the drying air that can do damage to our skin. RAD Soap has two products that help combat dryness and premature aging throughout the year.
RAD Soap is a Capital Region favorite with a cult following. Founded by Sue Kerber in 2009, RAD can be found at various farmers markets, at co-ops and their new store in Stuyvesant Plaza.
The American Beauty face cream is a wonderful moisturizer with all natural ingredients. I use this very moisturizing cream many times a week, and it works well as a primer for foundation.
However, I have found another holy grail product from RAD Soap. ‘Death Wish Body Lotion‘ is made with Death Wish Coffee. Dr. Kavita Mariwalla, Board Certified dermatologist and former Director of Cutaneous Oncology at the Beth Israel Cancer Center in Manhattan, says that “caffeine is a strong antioxidant.” Many studies claim caffeinated lotions reduce wrinkles and puffiness as well as claims of reducing cellulite.
I use Death Wish on my face, and from my experience, I have noticed a difference in the moisture level of my face. I use it like a serum, topped off with (yup, you guessed it) RAD’s American Beauty. I like the feeling of the tingling of the caffeine working into the skin. I have found another RAD product I will continue to use from now on. I also enjoy their soaps and body scrubs as well. Make a trip to the Stuyvesant Plaza store to check out all of their offerings.
My last find has to include a piece of clothing, of course! Baciano hales from Los Angeles and has been in business for over two decades. The company is constantly searching for new colors, fabrics, shapes, and trends to make sure they bring the fashion game every season. The broad collection offers a mix of comfort and style that can be worn from day to night.
I was able to wear these versatile lace pants, dressed up a bit, for a gala affair, for a chic girls night as well as a sexy date night. I have paired them with a black cold shoulder top with a silver statement necklace for a dressier affair to a denim shirt tied at the waist with a black, lace bralette peeking out and my lariat necklace. The pants run a bit large so I would size down.
Hopefully, these fashion fall finds sparked some ideas for accessorizing, skin care and clothing that will bring you through this fun season. Have a fantastic fall everyone!!
