How to Wear a Statement Accessory for Fall

How to Wear a Statement Accessory for Fall

Although I love minimalism, every now and then a wild accessory or garment will catch my eye.

I paired this awesome consignment find – long black Smythe blazer – with a burgundy Mongolian fur boa that I found at Nordstrom a few seasons ago. I love the fuzzy texture and punch of colour – not to mention this accessory keeps me warm. I always wear this larger than life boa with pared down classics and pieces that have good structure to them.

Contrasting two silhouettes (in this case, a boxy long-line blazer with what could be Animal from Sesame Street’s second cousin) is a fun way to balance out an eye-catching piece and allows it to steal the show.

For those of you who are wondering, I called the company that manufactured the boa (Toria Rose) to ask them about their fur sourcing and manufacturing techniques, and the owner himself called me back to chat about their long-standing  and solid relationship with a supplier in China. Because I bought the item a few years ago now, and wasn’t officially documenting my slow purchases, I don’t remember exactly if the fur was sourced from China as well, but I do remember the owner adhering to high quality standards.
