| Custom Necklace ℅ Ahndea May |
I had the privilege of meeting Ahndea when I was at BlogHer this summer. We met at a breakfast event with Kashi and the lovely ladies from Little Style File. It was during that event that we discovered a mutual love for Anthropologie and I learned that she was a stylist and custom jewelry and accessory creator. She has the most beautiful shop + blog where she helps you style for each season in a very affordable way. After spending quite a bit of time chatting we made plans to meet up later that afternoon at Anthro in downtown Chicago to do a little bit of shopping. Ahndea taught me all about shopping for my body shape and ways to shop for key pieces for your wardrobe that go with more than one item you already own. I’m such a mannequin shopper so begin able to find pieces that I could re-purpose into multiple outfits was a treat for me.
Fast forward a couple months and we were getting ready to take our family Christmas pictures. She created this beautiful piece for me that I absolutely LOVE!! While we planned to take pictures it still has yet to happen due to family sickness and travel and well…. the holidays. But I just had to share this piece with you so you could see just how versatile it is. It can be dressed up or you could throw it on with jeans and a tee. I’m pretty sure this falls under “the perfect accessory!” Be sure to check out her shop and her blog!
