She is playful and fierce and self-possessed – playful like a candy-flavoured cocktail with a very decided kick to it. Sweet – yes. Delicate – no. This mix of bangles and bracelets speaks to the inner romantic in us all – without being overly fussy.
Pairing up elements that remind you of a scene from a corset drama . . . elements like lace, ruffles, pearls, silks, ribbons are perfect. All of these textures evoke a sense of softness, touch-able-ness and work perfectly for setting a flirty tone.
For adding to this set, you can:
~ grab a pearl necklace and wrap it several times around your wrist – this adds a luxurious element.
~ a coloured ribbon tied in a little bow around your wrist is also perfect – playing up a delicate, lady-like feel.
~ layer with your favourite timepiece/watch – this balanced out the fun with a very business like element.
~ leather plays well with the romantic look – it plays up your uniqueness and adds credibility and an industrial look to all that sweetness.

Fall is a perfect time to pair up daring shades that echo the transitioning colours outdoors. Chilly weather gets spiced up with some new enamel colours available this Autumn 2012 – mixed up with stately plaids and prints, salvaged leather from horse harnesses, and a few addicting textures!
New designs and accessories like drapey earrings, geometric necklaces and chunky rings will be listing in Bullfinch & Barbury’s Etsy Shop soon!
Out of all the bold shades that are trending for this autumn, my favourites are the shades of orange and saffron that are too beautiful to pass up. Whether I’m whipping up a batch of Parisian macarons or set of enameled bangles, it seems like warm citrus tones just have a magnetic draw. It seems like the perfect color for mixing – it plays so well with mocha, pink, blue, and purple . . . is there a single color that isn’t set off by an accent of orange?
