06 Nov Uno Alla Volta-Fall Accessories-The Colors of Fall
Good Morning friends
There is nothing like Fall. I love it, it has always been my favorite season as i love the chill in the air, the changing of leaves, hiking, camping, and wearing Fall Fashion. As you think of Fall and Fall hues, what colors spring to mind? I know I love most of Fall’s shades as they tend to compliment my hair and skin tone. If you missed the Pantone Institute colors for this season, see my post HERE.
As you might know, this is not inclusive of what colors you may love to or choose to wear over the season, they are colors that you should see in terms of what is out in stores and what designers use as their color palette. I wanted to pair several colors together today that come to mind when I see our trees in the front change color.
When you choose accessories, are you one to buy pieces that the mass market is buying or do you look for special elements and handcrafted jewelry that has special meaning? Maybe you do both. I am fond of finding vintage pieces with meaning, as well as handmade items that are unique to themselves, original pieces. I also find pieces from artisans when i travel, as it reminds me of the places and brings back memories.
Uno Alla Volta sent me this beautiful amber necklace with a silver design. I have always loved the orange-yellow warm colored look of amber. Uno Alla Volta states. “Avi’s stunning oval necklace features a hand-forged sterling silver pendant accented with a genuine golden amber cabochon. Amber, highly appraised for its warm, golden hues and gemstone qualities, is not actually a stone at all. Found in areas surrounding the Baltic Sea, the rare fossilized tree resin from over 45 million years ago is collected and polished to a smooth finish. Amber is said to be used for its therapeutic healing and relaxing fragrance when held in the palm of your hand.’
Therapeutic healing. I need to keep this on at all times! I loved the design as this necklace will go with many fall hues i will be wearing this season. I decided to style it with other Fall colors of burgundy and mustard, wearing a vintage inspired Karina dress and adding this J Crew ruffled mustard cardigan. The feathered brooch adds a touch of rust and the amber necklace completes the look with added warm tones.
( so to see the leaf pattern on the silk scarf)
This beautiful scarf, in its multitude of fall shades, was created by California artist, Joyita . A self taught artist, she was inspired by the times she would paint with her grandmother.” Joyita creates this wearable work of art in devore silk. After hand-painting the leaf-patterned fabric red and green with brilliant silk dyes in her California studio, she dries each scarf for 24 hours before steam-setting the glorious colors.’ This scarf reminds me of the transitional time from the green hues as the leaves change to gold and red.
With the Holidays coming, Uno Alla Volta bring you items from around the world such as hand painted wine glasses, Polish pottery, jewelry, women’s accessories, hats, home decor among others. Artisans from around the world share their craft and talent with each piece made uniquely for Uno Alla Volta.
I added to the accessories by carrying my cognac Rebecca Minkoff bag with the colorful leaf print scarf to add even more color to the look. I loved this poem to signify part of what i love about Fall:
As you think about adding Fall accessories to your closet, take a look at what Uno Alla Volta offers. There are silk scarves, cozy warm ponchos and one of a kind pieces of jewelry. I love their selection of scarves, both silk and these wonderful structural scarves.
