Building Your Look

Remember that I told you before that the favorite part of my Grace Adele consultant website was the Build My Look feature where you could try different clutches in bags as well as combinations of the entire fall/winter collection to easily create your perfect look? OF COURSE YOU DO!

I have spent so much time playing with Polyvore for the purpose of building entire looks to post to one of my Pinterest boards. Again, I know what I like and I know what looks great, but I’m a little challenged in turning Pinterest into reality. (I doubt I am alone on that one).

But now, with Grace Adele items being made available on Polyvore, I can build an entire look anytime I want. I was especially excited when I saw one of my favorite bags had been added–Mary in chocolate.

Build Your Look

One of the best features of the Consultant’s websites through Grace Adele is the Build Your Look feature. By clicking the “Shop” tab and selecting the option to build your look, the site makes it every so easy to put together an entire new you in a matter of moments.

First, you start by selecting your color of handbag. In the fall/winter 2012 inaugural catalog, Grace Adele offers red, teal, purple, black, brown/natural, zebra and leopard print.

The colors are rich and deep. GA features a full-line of faux leather as well as a line of fine leather bags from which to choose.

Once you have a chance to look at each of the bags, you’ll see why settling on one can be a difficult task. The nice thing about the Build My Style feature is that with the click of a button, you can immediately swap out any selected items (foundational handbag included) without having to start the entire process over again.

Once you select your color, you are presented with the choice of handbag shapes. Each bag carries a lovely girl’s name and features an interior with a very high IQ.

No more losing your things INSIDE your handbag. The handbag offers your a place for everything so you can keep everything in its place.

The pattern inside each bag is shiny and a little lighter than the exterior of the bag. It offers some reflective properties as you open it and search for your keys, phone, etc. in the specially designed pockets. There is even a clear plastic, TSA friendly bag for travel purposes included in each handbag. This interior makes the handbag even more of a value.

Once you select a handbag shape, you move on to the clutch. All GA clutches are interchangeable with any GA handbag. You can mix and match to your heart’s content which is value added to the conscientious shopper. The bags also look great standing alone. So, with one bag and one clutch, you’ll have three possible looks (bag alone, clutch alone, bag-clutch combo). Each clutch comes with a detachable strap so that you can carry it alone as a clutch or use it as a smaller shoulder type bag.

After making those two major decisions, the routinely overwhelming task of selecting accessories is broken down into tinier steps. You start with styling your bag. You can add a wallet, if you’d like. Then, you move into the make-up bag & notebook category. Finally, you add some fun & function to your bag with clip-ons from decorative to functional.

Once you’ve styled your bag, it’s time to style YOURSELF. Jewelry & scarves round out your look.

The finished product may look something like this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or, you may go for something more like this:

Whatever your choices, you can’t go wrong. Everything is meant to be mixed, matched and remixed for tons of fun and fresh looks. The best part is, there are ways to combine products into money-saving bundles. Plus, by sharing Grace Adele with friends, you can take your selections home for half-price or even free. That’s why I love what I do!
