SheFinds Was There: Accessories The Show

In support of our relentless efforts to become tiptop trend spotting connoisseurs, I made the trek out to the Javits Center last week for the big accessories trade show. While strolling down row upon row of amazing bags and jewels, in true shopaholic form, I felt tempted to invent some fabulous fictitious store for which I needed to order hundreds of amazing faux-croc patent purses. But alas, I was only there to browse. Fortunately, I was able to discover a few up-and-coming brands whom I found to be innovative and attention–worthy, (and were actually nice to the lowly fashion writer who was generally ignored amid the throngs of buyers).

Here is the rundown of our favorites:

Charm and Luck

Adored and sported by the fashionable elite like La Lohan, Beyoncé and Paris, this very fun and edgy handbag and accessories company is the pride and passion of a former Vogue Magaziner who created the brand with her Nordstrom executive pal. We particularly enjoy how the bags are inspired by different cities (skulls and bones for L.A., leather and cowhair for Houston, seafoam green for Tahiti…) There are even clever little “airport totes” that are conveniently transparent to save time in those security lines. This quilted shoulder bag from the Florence collection fits in perfectly with the trends for fall

Everyday Jewels 

We are always big fans of consumerism with a cause, which is why Everyday Jewels deserves a little attention. Inspired by her own mother’s courageous battle with breast cancer, Heather Smith launched a brand of beautiful handmade jewelry with the main mission of supporting breast cancer research. Her necklaces and earrings of semi-precious stones and glowing freshwater pearls are truly classy and timeless. So next time take a pass on the cheap street fair baubles and support your fellow ladies with a meaningful purchase.

Rock Your Religion

With a very cute story about how it came to fruition, this company provides the slightly more pious with some rockin’ accessories. Handcrafted in the USA, the rock 'n roll-ish religious symbols are available in a variety of metals, (even platinum!), and a percentage of sales are proudly donated to VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, (dedicated to restoring music education in our public schools).

Nahui Ollin

Probably most recognized for their recycle-chic handbags, it turns out that candy wrapper weaving is not Nahui Ollin’s only specialty. It was love at first sight for me with these naturally dyed, hand embroidered shoulder purses from the "New Artesanal" collection that come in a few different styles and eye-popping colors. They are quite stylish for day or night, so definitely pick one up and have your friends marveling at your uniqueness.
