Upgrade your basics

“If there was a choice on spending a lot of money on accessories or dress, I always chose accessories” – Iris Appel.

An accessory can put an exclamation to your outfit is what I believe. Last week my instagram was full of Iris Apfel. People appreciate her affluence as a fashion icon & influencer. I think I appreciate her spirit & her grace that still looks so subtle even with that bold lip she had on for  her latest Elle India shoot. She recently turned 96 & with every passing year her fashion influence has been evolving even greater. What caught my attention was her thick bangles designed by Amrapali. It’s beautiful how accessories take your elegance to another level.

I thought of making this post on small pieces of accessories that you can wear daily & upgrade your overall look. We tend to forget our big earrings, brooches & bangles & just wear very basic clothing at times but basic clothing paired up with a good accessory can make an ultimate statement for you.

Simple silver loop earrings were always in but what if you upgraded them in rosegold? Rosegold is the color of elite grace, so simple yet attractive. These earrings I recently found on Shein.  Rosegold gives me some Spanish vibes, reminds me of the actresses from telenovelas, too bold even when minimal.



Brooches weren’t meant for our generation until I found some cool ones by 20 Dresses. They have really cool designs from cameras to little hot air balloons & pandas in brooches that you just can’t resist. Adding a funky brooch can make a big difference, so go ahead & search something for your basic tees.


Something we always forget is our bags, wallets & clutches or carry all pouches. Mercy your bags, they carry more baggage than your heart everyday, add some fun keychains to them & upgrade.


Remember how old women say, ” Jewellery has the power of being that one little thing that can make you feel unique .”

Take care Bagnizers & yes accessorize!
