When the fine folks at Lucky Magazine and Charming Charlie asked me if I wanted to go on a shopping outing to my local Charming Charlie, I was pretty excited. My sister first introduced me to the accessory shop a little over a year ago, but it had been a while since I'd stopped in. With the holiday season in full effect, I was hoping to discover a few fun jewelry and accessory items that could add a little sparkle to my favorite black dresses for holiday parties and New Year's Eve. What I didn't realize was that I'd find quite a bit more.
If you've been inside a Charming Charlie before, you know that they are literally full of every kind of accessory - from bags to bracelets, earrings to tights, hats to shoes. I ended up spending a couple of hours just looking through the thousands of different goodies, trying on scarves and necklaces, and deciding which pieces to bring home. I love how everything is organized by color, and that each section has so many different styles. It's a really fun shopping experience, and whether you're looking for yourself or for a gift, you're bound to find something special.
As I mentioned, my goal was to pick out a few signature pieces from this season's styles to amp up my look for some holiday parties that I have coming up. I definitely found the perfect sparkly pieces, as you can see in the photos I took. And as you can also see, I fell in love with some completely different items that were more casual and a little bohemian inspired too, which is very much my personal style. It was so cool to be able to find accessories that will create two totally different looks for me - all in the same store! I was able to get some formal, glitzier styles for the dressier holiday occasions, and some earthy, comfy-yet-chic pieces for casual holiday gatherings. I even picked up a couple of holiday gifts for my sister (but I'm not saying which pieces just in case she's reading this!). In one shopping trip, I was able to find the perfect accessories to complete both my formal holiday look and my casual holiday look, and do a little holiday gift shopping as well. Pretty awesome.
If you're looking for some really great accessories in this season's styles, or want to grab some fun, stylish gifts for friend and family, I suggest stopping by Charming Charlie. Seriously. Just click here to find the store nearest to you. And if you've shopped there before, I'd love to hear about it! Do you love how the store is set up? What are your favorite CC scores?
