An Om kind of shopping experience…

IMG_1200

Sunday was for shopping and Monday is for posting mail, running errands, doing laundry and mentally preparing for being away from home for a week while I house sit. I went to several places yesterday but the one place I really enjoyed going to was Sahara, a really chic and tranquil women’s clothing and accessories store located in St. Armands Circle in Sarasota. Part of the Binjara Traders, Inc. family, Sahara specializes in clothing and accessories straight out of India, beautiful and ornate with decent price tags to match. If you want authenticity then don’t hesitate to stop by. They have an amazing assortment of Buddhas in all different sizes as well as Ganesha sculptures. I took several photos of the store so you could see the inside.

Accessorize…

I LOVE accessorizing…it is without a doubt my biggest weakness when it comes to fashion and style. I think I have more accessories than actual clothing and that is perhaps because I have learned to create several outfits with just changing a few…that’s right, you guessed it…ACCESSORIES here and there! At the top of my list? BAGS! It’s all in the bag and I have plenty to prove it.

Another thing I just can’t seem to get enough of is hair accessories…

Hair Clips by Ilona Accesorios

I bought those for my niece at this great craft fair in Caracas, Venezuela and just love Ilona Accesorios’ brilliant new items:

Elastic Headbands by Ilona Accesorios

Flower Clips by Ilona Accesorios

These other beautiful clips I got from the ever beautiful Tiffany Carbaugh of Riant Photography, they benefited cancer research so I was all over that!

Fashion doesn’t have to break your piggy bank! It can be smart, fun and simply elegant!
