The big show for Tampa Bay Fashion Week 2012 turned out to be a fashion extravaganza, the likes of which I have never seen! From a fencing-inspired collection to corsets and feathers, creativity was certainly at its finest.
Who doesn’t love a girl who knows how to hold a sword? Inspired by the age old sport of fencing, House of Donshey presented a fabulous collection filled with sexy corsets and dazzling accessories.
In the spirit of corsets, feathers and everything fabulous, Wicked Betty also presented a delightfully sinful collection.
Between House of Donshey and Wicked Betty, there was a plethora of fantasy, sparkle and sex appeal. Who doesn’t love that?

Feminine, beautiful and classic. Lace has been a fashion staple since the 16th century. Now, in the 21st century it has become as abundant in a variety of unique colors and flattering silhouettes.
The peplum top is a wonderfully popular variation this summer, bringing a bit of extra flair to a basic top. I have recently purchased one in deep violet with a sweetheart neckline and wide straps. I could describe it as nothing less than divine!

In the hot summer months, we rarely feel like adding a jacket to our daily ensemble. Various life factors, however may sometimes make it necessary. Perhaps your professional life requires it on a daily basis. Aside from dress codes, I can tell you that I freeze every time I step foot inside a restaurant, even if the thermometer outside does read 90 degrees. For any of these instances, a stunning lace jacket will always be stylish, practical and fun.

Perhaps a full lace dress is a bit too Victorian for you, but you prefer just a peek. There is a wide variety of wonderful accessories to bring just a touch of lace to your life.

It has been agreed upon that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. The luxurious effect a diamond has once brushed across your collar-bone, or coasted down your finger -preferably by a handsome prince- it sparkles in your eyes to enhance the reason why it is wonderful to be a women, despite pregnancy, cramping, and menstrual mood-swings. However, over time women have befriended more than just a diamond. Shoes, the little black dress and the handbag. I refer to my handbag as my first aid kit. Not because I have everything from a nail file to pens to a phone charger in it, but because without my handbag I feel as if I forgot to put on a vital piece of clothing before leaving the house. A handbag is #3 on my list of things mandatory to wear, after a bra and panties. That’s how much I rely on my handbag and I’ve met alot of women that feel the same way as I do.
This is why when I came across the ultimate diamond house and found out that they added a new friend to the group, I had to share it with all the Fashion Week Tampa Bay friends. Tiffany & Co. has handbags!
I know…same reaction I had- grin from ear to ear and loud shouts like I won the lottery.
The handbag collection is designed by Elsa Peretti, an Italian jewelry designer. She is known for the infamous ‘tear drop’ necklace at Tiffany & Co. She has incorporated timeless Tiffany pieces that are reincarnated as chain handles on evening bags, a crystal-bow brooch is brought back to life as a motif on a clutch and a six-prong engagement ring setting is the basis for a twist-lock clasp…I do!
The enticement of the handbags trimmings doesn’t stop there. The soft color palette, which portrays rich jewel tones like garnet and violet, also offers neutral tones like black pearl and camel stones that will pair well with many eveningwear pieces.
I don’t recommend sporting this handbag while shopping at the mall with your girlfriends. This handbag is definitely an exclusive item in your closet and should only be taken out on special occasions. However, they offer a few casual handbags such as a backpack and a shopper tote.
Thank you Tiffany’s for catering to every woman’s needs!
