Smitten Saturday

Rescue 9-1-1 Darlings The Beatles said it best with the lyrics “Help! I need somebody…”, but at this particular moment it is not “somebody” who will cure my ailments; rather it is something. Help Remedies, to be more specific.

While I literally carry everything but the kitchen sink in my handbag, magically I’m always lacking the one item I need to cure what currently ails me. I have sleeping pills when I need aspirin; band-aids when I need allergy medicine; or ibuprofen when I need hydrocolloid. I think my unprepared-ness stems from the fact that I simply can’t be bothered to lug around a drugstore wherever I go; yet I am convinced that Help Remedies will set me on the right track in the chicest of ways. Their line of antidotes forgo the typical tacky pill bottles sitting in a jumbled mess on shop shelves and come in cute color-coded biodegradable containers – each one a cure-all for your current sickness. Battling a blister from your pretty yet painful pumps? Help I Have a Blister can patch it up. Combating a killer headache after that sample sale? Help I Have a Headache will alleviate the pain. I imagine I’ll need to pop all six packages into my purse – you never know when they’ll come in handy!

Queen of Hearts I wouldn’t recommend this sort of behavior for just anyone, darlings, as it leads to ultimate heartbreak in the end – at least it has in my world; but I’ve always been one to wear my heart on my sleeve. To lay it all on the line, and remain unmasked in any and all situations. But I have had – no pun intended – a change of heart. No longer will my heart be worn upon my sleeve; but rather, atop my head in the form of the heavenly hair accessories crafted by mother daughter design duo Old Soul, New Heart.

Together, Tamara and Shea spend their off-time seeking out vintage trinkets at flea markets and estate sales, than work their crafty magic to transform them into new pieces with glamorous old souls. And as if the beauty of these creations isn’t enough to pique your interest, the adorable titles for each knickknack most certainly will. Currently my heart belongs to Lookin’ for a Beau, Meet Me on Park Ave., Flirt, Only Slightly Revealing, She Gossips, But Quietly, and Cookies for Breakfast. Which Old soul, New Heart offering will morph you into the Queen of Hearts?

Sealed with a Kiss Since there are currently no interesting, cute boys around whom I’d like to shower with kisses, I have decided that the best course of action is not to live life without a little peck here and there; but rather to obtain my smooches elsewhere – and no place seems as satisfying than via a tiny trinket that I can clasp around my throat. A glittering bauble that won’t talk back, question me about my whereabouts, or deem it appropriate to skip out on movie night to hang out with his “boys.” Darlings I know that the pieces in question are unable to provide the same tender, love, and care as a cute boy is able to; but at least their petite pouts will fill the void until I find someone new to swoon over.

I imagine the Yellow Gold Kiss Kiss Petite Necklace by Jules Smith has the power to reel cute boys in by the dozen due to its sassy smirk which drapes decadently over your chest; a place where it will look utterly bewitching lying over a plain white tee. Sears’ Pink Sapphire Lip Necklace, on the other hand, is a bit of frippery that I am simply incapable of keeping hush hush about courtesy of the sapphire-embellished pink lips which seemingly wink at the world with every single sashay, strut, or step you take. Unleashing the smoldering sophisticate within is bound to be a piece of cake with Lulu Guinness’ Lips & Lipstick Pendant Necklace in White Bronze cinched around my throat. And really…what better way to start the day than with a wee love letter coiled around my collar in the form of Lulu Guinness’ Cream with Love Envelope Charm Necklace. Are you ready to sprinkle your accessory collection with a few kisses, kittens?

Fashionably yours!
