This Spring I'm going to be spending a lot of time in accessory land. As I start a new semester I wanted to talk a little about what's going to be racking my brain for the next fifteen weeks, the art of accessory design.
What girl doesn't love accessories? they can turn a blah day with a blah outfit into something Chic and fabulous. Its that treasured little coveted item of your favorite designer if you can't afford the clothes.
So why pray tell am I babbling on about accessories? well this semester I'm going to be diving into creating two lines of my own leather and small item goods. The inspiration to start me off is none other than Mary Queen of Scots. I must confess that the idea popped into my head after watching a steady netflix marathon, while cramming for ideas, of the television show Reign. But in an otherwise unexplored area of the Elizabethan era I wanted to, for myself, come up with something that expresses the bond of her two countries. Her roots, Scotland and her marital home France.
