Emerson Fry & A Peace Treaty

In all honesty, as much as I love accessorizing, the only times I tend to do it is on weekends or vacations when I have a few extra minutes to get fancy before racing out the door. I’ve been loving the idea of combining the sweet simplicity of Emerson Fry’s (formerly Emerson Made) new spring line with the strong, tribal pieces from A Peace Treaty’s new collections! So let’s have some fun playing with clothes and jewels, and see how I would meld them together!

I adore the elegance and flow of this sweet navy peacock dress. The side-slit is executed perfectly, ensuring a graceful fall to the fabric and functionality of movement you can walk in! A long dress has to be very special to win me over – congrats Emerson, you nailed it on this one!

I know with a v-neck like this, we’ve been told that a necklace might be a good fit, but I love how cleanly the collar-bones are framed, so let’s leave well-enough-alone on that front. Let’s go with rings and bracelets in warm golds with statement-making earrings featuring lapis stones to complement the hue of the dress. Great look for a more casual spring/summer wedding!

The White Mod Dress is perfect for those girls sans curves! Yes, I do recommend if you are curvy steer clear of the shapeless shifts. Rather go for designers like David Meister and Herve Leger who cater to that hourglass figure.

You can go so many directions when it comes to accessorizing this dress as it is the definition of classic and clean – think of it as a canvas you get to work with! So this is how I would do it….

Love stacking necklaces – whether different lengths, or in this case pairing one with the pendant at the base with one with the pendant-like detailing on the drop. It makes the pieces more dynamic while giving them more weight. I also love combining these chains as they have such different thicknesses. This ring is gorgeous. I love how much depth they create in the setting and I adore this simple, marble-esque stone combined with the tiny spikes – that careful balance between clean and rocker.  As for earrings, go with gold stud or, keep it simple and go earring-free.

This LBD (Little Black Dress) is another look that you can really have fun with. The slight sweetheart neckline is simply charming.  I would go a bit funky with the jewelry on this one.

These earrings are great as they are small but sculptural. I love pulling in a set of bangles on one wrist. Again, here I would combine necklaces. Playing a bit with lengths, these two necklaces will almost meld into one (keep the chain of the Hukan behind the Kamari.)  Finish it off with a strong but simple ring or two. This look will get you noticed on those warm summer nights!

Finally a twist on Mod with the zebra look – I warned you last week I am crazy for these animal prints! I love how Emerson had the zebra lines not quite match-up, it gives the top a wonderful, whirling feel. This is a bold piece, so don’t be shy! Here I would stack bracelets and play it up with these two fabulously edgy ring options. I would go small and simple for the earrings to keep the focus lower. And this long, chain necklace with little gold shark teeth, stays delicate but intriguing – let the zebra meet the shark!

On another note, I respect and admire A Peace Treaty. Please do take the time to read how and why they were founded. It’s an inspiring story of the company’s beginnings – a pact between Farah Malik, a Pakistani Muslim, and Dana Arbib, a Libyan Jew.
