So you have the dress and shoes, but what about the bag and what are you going to put over the top so that you don’t freeze? I’m not talking coats to wear to and from the event, more something just to put over your shoulders in case the venue is chilly (or until you are dancing and warmed up) or something to cover your arms. As both of these are problems I have, I knew when we created Capsule Accessories that I needed to include these essential items. Our solution are our beautiful fine wool shawls (which you can also wear as a scarf) and our faux fur trimmed wraps.
The other great benefit of these items is that you can choose one of your best colours to wear close to your face. The fine wool shawls come in 13 plain colours, 2 prints and 6 multi toned colours. Of course being someone who “Lives Life in Colour,” meant I also needed to have bags to work with the shawls too, making it simple for you to find a combination that is right for you.
Here are a few examples of combinations, worn with a Lace dress (looks so much more expensive than it is) to demonstrate the colours.
And if you are looking for a metallic bag to add to your accessories capsule, or to give as a gift here are my selection.
