To begin our “Gift Yourself” series, we are starting off small with accessories. Small touches to an ensemble that carry over to how you feel about yourself and how you represent your business. Keeping it simple, we are talking jewelry and shoes today and moving on elsewhere later this week. Read more about the “Gift Yourself” series in the post Gift Yourself: Comfort through Your Environment.

And now on to accessories (said in my best Oprah voice)!!!
Jewelry that converts is a YFE’s best friend… sorry diamonds. Busy bees like us need to polish off an outfit whether it is our home office yoga pants or cocktail, networking event heals.
Stylist with Stella and Dot and YFE, Katie Hiccox, recommends checking out the Claire Necklace. “Wear it long or short, dressed up or down – this piece can add style to almost everything in your closet and won’t break the bank…. Wear it longer with jeans, your favorite tee and cardigan for your perfect weekend shopping wear. Or try it shorter to dress up your favorite cocktaildress.Finish the look with the Soiree Earrings in silver.”
Looking for something to symbolize your business, or your wee ones? Using your jewelry as a conversation starter is a great idea. For this, Hiccox suggests the customizable Charm Collection, “always a huge hit for sisters, grandmas, moms, aunties, and you’re BFF!”
The season’s hottest trends are being fulfilled by celebrity, young, female entrepreneurs like Jessica Simpson and Ivanka Trump. Living in your Nikes and Uggs is okay when you are full into a launch or beginning a new project, but making a habit of leaving the house in grunge mode can get old. Try on a pair of these, and get inspired by the women behind the look.
This black peep toe by Jessica Simpson has a trendy platform, slim heal, and nice height. At 30 years old, Jessica Simpson has spread her brand well into fashion with her collection encompassing not only shoes, but dresses, jeans, swimwear, fragrances, and even luggage to name a few. Do you remember what started it all after her singing career peaked? Dessert by Jessica Simpson launched in 2004 as her first try at a product line.
Along with black peep toe pumps, you can find numerous shoes that fall into the nude trend as well. Check out this nude platform that might fit your bill.
The last trend for this season that a YFE can get excited about is espadrilles. Ivanka Trump’s polka dot espadrille platforms are a mixture of cute and sophisticated that works for any young, female entrepreneur. Before joining the Trump family business Ivanka Trump loaned her name and know how to another company. Now at 29, Ivanka Trump is no longer known as the daughter of Donald Trump. She is married and expecting a baby, working with her father, but is also designing for her own line of handbags, jewelry, and shoes.
Do you use jewelry and shoes in your daily routine to boost your confidence or add some bling to your name?
