 First Look at Spring Accessories for 2008

Hello Fashion Diggers...

Pastel Enamel Hoop Earrings from Mid Century Chic Bright colors as well as shiny metallics of all shades are on everyone's must have list for spring and we can't think of a better way to ease into the new season than by shopping for this hot trend on FASHIONDIG.

Consider adding a few choice vintage items that are super bright and shiny as the perfect antidote for cold weather blahs. Come along with us as we browse for items that will jumpstart your spring wardrobe.

We find chic to-die-for choice designer pieces from YSL & Gucci at Marlene Wetherell. The YSL gold choker on velvet ribbon is simply amazing and versatile - equally at home with a simple white shirt or a ball gown, and a sure way to gain tons of compliments. The classic Gucci gold metallic moccasins with rhinestone trim provide a bit of timeless chic - perfect to wear with your favorite skinny leg denim designer jeans or a chic MOD style dress.

Making a Comeback shows a fab, fun collapsible Panama hat... in bright red! A great easily packable solution for a quick trip down South .

YELLOW/ORANGE FLORAL PIN from Metro RetroCheck out Metro Retro for fun brooches. Choose the KJL elephant brooch and show your party preference when you vote in the Super Tuesday primaries, or pin on a bit of sunshine by wearing a Flower Power plastic resin pin in neon bright yellow and orange. And to celebrate Valentine’s Day there is an unusual gold metal Cupid “up to mischief” brooch.

We browse along further and find a vivid bright “cheap and cheerful” Mod handbag featured at With a Twist - in bubble gum pink at that - even better!

This week's journey ends at Mid Century Chic which offers some fresh and colorful pieces of costume jewelry - perfect for spring. We love the pair of giant hoop clip-on earrings in pink and yellow enamel - so 1960s! And we can't overlook the bold oversized Flower Power enamel cocktail ring in turquoise. A transparent vinyl clutch with flecks of gold metallic glitter & threads catches our eye as well and was just added to the shop so don't miss it.
