Weekender Style: Every Day I'm Tasselin'

I'm not sure when or where it started, but I have definitely been on a major tassel kick for quite awhile now!  Whether found on earrings, dresses, or pillows, I don't think I've met a tassel I didn't like. I sell tassel-adorned Turkish towels, so I started using #everydayImTasselin as an Instagram hashtag, and I love seeing some of my favorite tasselers catch on, too!  Here is a little round-up of a few products that are tasseled to perfection, with a tassel tutorial at the end in case you want to make some yourself!  Some of the links I've shared are affiliate links, which means your purchase will help me keep this blog up and running.  I appreciate it so much! 

 

Tassel Jewelry

I just discovered Cristina V., which is all made in the USA!  Her elephant pendant necklace is too adorable!  I'm also always into tassel earrings, and while I love Lisi Lerch, they just start to hurt by the end of the night so I've graduated to Bauble Bar's lighter versions. 

1. Cristina V. Elephant Tassel Charm Necklace, $128 // 2. Bauble Bar Black/White Piñata Tassels, $36

 

Tassel Clothing

Escapada's clothing makes me want to pack a bag for the Tropics ASAP, but with our surprisingly warm temps lately these are some great pieces for both traveling and weekending at home. 

How fab is the the Lorelei jacket (in flat lay & top left photo), with precious pink or aqua tassels on every corner. This Cayman pattern is my favorite print of theirs right now, and I own it in the romper version that fits like a dream. I'm loving all of their caftan and tunic styles at EscapadaLiving.com, which help tide us over until summer because meanwhile they pair well with jeans.

 

Tassel Decor/Accessories

1. Urban Outfitters Pillows, $39 or 2/$60 // 2. Lilly & Oak Fringe Keytag, $15 (coming soon to thecharlestonweekender.com!) // 3. The Tiny Tassel Basket, $55 // 4. Beau & Ro Lucy Clutch/Crossbody, $188 


Tassel Tutorial

As promised, here is a tassel tutorial c/o Martha Stewart. You can use with embroidery thread as shown, or even use yarn for big awesome tassel garlands!  Pom-poms are essentially made the same way, just with a tie in the center and a cut on both ends instead of one.  Helpful tip: it's nice to have a partner for an extra set of pinching fingers!

Bubbles, Baubles, and an NYE Round-UP

I'm a little sad to see 2016 go, but always get excited about the promise of a new year!  There are some great ways for you to bring in 2017 if you live in Charleston, as seen HERE on my NYE round-up for skirt! magazine.  Once you figure out what your plans are, might I suggest focusing on the next important tasks at hand: what to wear and what to serve. 

Best NYE Baubles

Accessorizing something you already own is way more fun than getting a glittery dress that will just stay in your closet the rest of the year. These earrings are all $36- $70, and some are an extra 25% off!

Pictured (Top to bottom, L-R): Vanessa Mooney Tassel Drop, $45 // Baublebar gray crispin earrings, $48 // BaubleBar pink gem piñata tassel (extra 25% off!), $38 // Candy Shop Vintage Champagne Coupe Earrings, $68 // Baublebar yellow ombre piñata drop (extra 25% off!), $36 // Candy Shop Vintage 3-strand rice bead earrings, $68 


Best NYE Bubbles:

You've already heard me rant about One Hope Wine.  The best part about them is that 50% of all profits from the wine go to various charities.  Another great thing about my favorite of their varietals, the sparkling brut, is that it is on sale through 12/31!  I would order ASAP if you need it for your NYE festivities (a perfect hostess gift!); those glitter bottles have been selling out!

Brut Sparkling Wine, $16.10 thru Dec 31 // Brut Sparkling Wine Glitter Bottle, $59 //                     $5 shipping with proceeds providing meals to hungry children through Why Hunger. 


Whatever you do, be safe and have fun! Cheers, y'all!
