Accessories, Accessories, Accessories!

Happy Hump Day all! Hope you had a great weekend! Im still recuperating from my vacay and will tell you all about it on Friday! Until then, today’s guest post is from the wonderful Parker of Everyday Runway 365! I hope you enjoy her post! 

Hello Grown & Curvy Women! My name is Parker Simmons & I am the creator of fashion/beauty blog Everyday Runway! My mission is to inspire women of all ages to embrace their bodies, accent their style and make the world their personal runway. I’m both flattered and thankful that Georgette invited me to stop by to share my love of accessories with you.

Accessories are such a critical part of any fashion ensemble. You can totally transform your look by simply changing your shoes and bag. For the sake of not being super long winded, I am going to focus on jewelry for this particular post. If you ever pop over to my blog, one thing you will notice is that I have an affinity for unique, statement necklaces.

I love to stand out! I have absolutely no boundaries when it comes to statement necklaces and love to work with designers that offer unique pieces. I am a high/low girl, which means I Prada on down to Good Will.  With that being said, I want to tell you about 2 of my favorite necklace designers that I wear most frequently. First up is Atlanta based designer Rean Fisher.

Whenever I need something that’s truly ostentatious & ridiculously over the top, I always give Rean a call. Her collection, Enjeanious by Rean Fisher is a combination of copper wire and stones intricately combined together to create breathtaking, one of a kind pieces. I typically wear her runway pieces or something that is custom created for an ensemble that I am wearing. Rean’s pieces make you feel so amazing. All eyes will be on you because unless someone else is wearing one of her pieces, there will be nothing like it in the room. If you want a guaranteed showstopper, she is definitely your go-to designer. A Rean Fisher original doesn’t come cheap, but boy is it worth it!

 Finally, a collection that is not quite as bold, but still just as beautiful is Cayetano Legacy Collection. Founded by 3 first generation Filipino American sisters, Cayetano Legacy offers a broader range of pieces that are hand created by female artisans in the Philippines. The pieces are absolutely gorgeous, and are something that I wear almost daily. They are bold enough to be noticed, but not completely over the top.

The Cayetano Legacy Collection is also affordable, offering a broad range of prices for their beautiful hand crafted accessories. They have a strong following, but their pieces are produced in small batches so you more than likely won’t see yourself walking around. Also, due to the use of natural stones, all of their pieces have their own unique quality and are like wearing mini-masterpieces.


Whether you are going to work or out to play, don’t be afraid to make a statement. Rock it with confidence and embrace your own personal style. If you don’t love you, know well else will. Until next time, “Be Confident, Be Fabulous, Be Passionate and most of all make the world your personal runway!”

See you on the front row-

<3 Parker S.
