Want to dress like royalty? Try accessorizing your look with bows! They have been a symbol of royalty throughout the ages. Women have worn bags, brooches, and jewelry adorned with bows forever. Shop2Chic has a variety of bow accessories sure to make you feel like a Queen.

Office Chic

Who says workplace attire has to be boring? Today’s working women are fashionable both on and off the clock! The easiest way to achieve an “office chic” look is by incorporating bold, stylish accessories with simple business attire. A statement necklace and printed handbag can liven up any outfit. Check out a few of my favorite Shop2Chic pieces below used to achieve three different professional yet fashionable looks.

 This Black and White Houndstooth Handbag looks stellar paired with a Theory leather pencil skirt and red Stella McCartney blazer. However, the over-sized Gold Link Necklace and Gold Decorative Earrings make this simple outfit look glamorous. A pair of black Prada round toed pumps complete the look.

A bold yellow Ralph Lauren blazer adds a pop of color to a simple black sleeveless dress. The Yellow & Black Chain Earrings act as the statement piece. An Embossed Black Handbag completes this look.

This black silk blouse, white slim-fit trousers and black pumps create a professional but simple look.  We paired the outfit with gold accessories to emphasize the gold zipper accent on the trousers.  Shop2Chic's Gold Mesh Bracelet with matching Necklace, and Arrowhead Enamel Earrings transform this outfit from boring to stylish.  For a handbag, we selected the Black & White Dome Bag which pulls together all the colors in the outfit.

Would you wear any of these looks to work?  Comment below and tell us what you think!

Alligator Bags

When putting together an outfit, color palette and silhouette are two important elements to consider. Texture is another important factor that is often forgotten. Combining different textures can turn a bland outfit into something visually striking.

An easy way to incorporate texture into an outfit is with accessories. Alligator is a texture that is often thought of as luxurious and sophisticated, however, Shop2Chic is putting a new spin on an old classic with our alligator embossed patent bags.

The rich colors and unique texture of these bags will make them your go-to statement piece.

Leopard Print

Leopard print is one of those trends that never goes out of style.  However, many people are unsure of how to wear it. The pattern is made up of neutral colors such as brown, beige, and black, which means that it can be incorporated into almost any outfit. Shop2Chic's leopard accessories will definitely add a little 'edge' to your look!

Because of the eye-catching nature of leopard print, it is best worn with neutral colors. Mixing neutrals, leopard print and a single pop of color can add extra drama to your outfit. Here, we have kept the day-time outfit simple, and accessorized with Shop2Chic's leopard print bag, earrings, and ring. We chose a bright purple camisole for our pop of color to create a regal look. 


Moderation is key with leopard print, so wear it in small doses to keep the pattern from swallowing you whole. Here, we’ve added touches of leopard print to a simple black dress for our night-look. Shop2Chic’s leopard print bag and earrings give this outfit a very chic look!

The best thing about leopard print? It is classic and seasonless, so go wild this fall with Shop2Chic’s leopard print bags and jewelry.

Stay chic,

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Hello, Shop2Chic readers!  Last week we announced the introduction of our Book Spotlight and now our first review is finally here!  With summer coming to a close, reading may be the last thing on your mind.  However, with our help, we hope to provide you with suggestions that will supersede your traditional summer reading list. After much deliberation, we found the perfect book to start you off...
Untitled #5
"Confessions of a Shopaholic" by Sophie Kinsella follows the quirky misadventures of Becky Bloomwood, a 25-year-old London socialite with a closet filled with the latest trends.  The only problem is: she can't afford any of it, and she has put herself in a debilitating financial crisis. Vowing to pay off every bill, Becky bares her soul in a letter to the editor of Allete, the mecca of fashion magazines, in order to acquire her dream job as a personal shopper.

Meanwhile, after being rebuffed at an interview with the unfortunate Luke Brandon at Successful Savings, an indignant Becky sends off another letter. But how many martinis were involved in the process? When Becky gets an enthusiastic call from Successful Savings with a job offer, she is mortified.  What can Becky, a compulsive spender receding deeper into debt everyday, possibly say about successful financial budgeting?

With bank manager Derek Smeath breathing down her neck, and her spend thrifty parents poking into her business, how long can Becky maintain the image of collected financial journalist? And even more importantly - what will happen if Denny & George hold another sample sale? Read to find out!
The best part of all of this? If you meet Becky and can't get enough, "Confessions" is part of a six-book series which continues to grow - even today!  Kinsella is set to release the next installment, Shopaholic to the Stars, this October. So pick up the first one today and get caught up!

At Shop2Chic, we believe there's a little shopaholic in all of us.  We hope that as fellow shoppers you can laugh and share in some of Becky's trial and tribulations, and perhaps even learn something about shopping (or saving)! Did you enjoy Becky? Let us know in the comment section below so we can better tailor the next book spotlight to your taste!

Stay Chic,

Surprising Tones for Fall 2014

When we think of fall colors, we seldom choose vibrant metallics and bright, eye-catching reds and pinks. We tend to mock our natural surroundings, emulating the dark greens, browns, and oranges of the changing season. According to Pantone's fall color announcement, 2014 is a time for new beginnings, and the abandonment of these classic dark tones. We've selected our top 3 favorite fall colors announced by Pantone and aligned them with Shop2Chic accessories to take you through the next few months!

Take a chance on these daring shades this fall!
