Let's cut the chase, the shoes of this outfit are daring, to say the least. While the dress and earrings are more subdued, there would be no outfit without these two crucial components. This is definitely evening-wear, but the earrings alone are extremely versatile. Check out the earrings at https://bit.ly/2OgNhLp!
So, it's been too long, I know, but I'm going to try to be better with posting style boards and info related to Royal Things. Also, feel free to post anything you might deem relevant to #royalthings and #stylingtoendhunger, starting... NOW
Mmk, let's restart with this neat take on fall fashion: we have a tan shimmery dress with suede-like tan pumps, a YSL special occasion purse and amazing pink/navy blue/black Gobster earrings. Check the Royal Things earrings out here: https://bit.ly/2Ogl9bm!

We're technically amidst winter, yet it doesn't feel like it. That's more of a reason to start building your Spring/Summer wardrobe for 2017. In this style board, there are several components, but the jewelry is key - without it there's no conversation piece. These earring are vintage rhinestone clip-ons that are about the size of quarters. They're subtle, but they also sparkle, so they don't outshine but they go well with the rest of the outfit.
Open toes and pretty frills - that's the immediate draw to the outfit. A Gucci purse and some accent earrings bring this look together.
It’s been a while since the last Royal Things blog post. However, I have been blogging for an innovative tech food distribution company - called Foodem. This company provides an online platform where restaurants can purchase a great variety and quantity of ingredients. The blogs that I write for Foodem are pretty straight forward. I visit a restaurant and write an article on my experience and the food. It’s fun and a great way to reflect on my dining experience. Blogging on food is what compelled me to revisit the Royal Things blog.
On the Royal Things site, I am going to blog on fashionable places in towns that I visit. Given that I live in Baltimore, I am going to begin by blogging on places within the city. Today, I visited a fashion forward boutique called Poppy Stella. It is a boutique that has a range of clothing and accessories, as well as great prices. Poppy Stella is made up of two corridor-like rooms that both have shelves with handbags - tote bags, clutches . They also have shoes - heels, mules and sandals. They even have Birkenstock like sandals - a shoes that I never thought I would like - that is until I saw them at Poppy Stella. I have to say that these Birkenstock shoes were the exception because they were gold and gold brightens up and adds value to just about anything. Each room also has a few racks of carefully curated clothing for the hip, suburban, meets metropolitan, girl or woman.
There were many outfits that could be created for the girl attending a festival like Coachella. For instance, one could easily select one of their sleeveless off-white lace tunics (made by Sugar + Lips) and pair it with curve hugging jeans (as seen here: https://www.facebook.com/poppyandstella). You could also wear a black sleeved dress underneath to create the layered look. There are also plenty of other chic items like olive green jumpsuits and the ubiquitous airy maxi dresses.
There is even some one-for-one action going on at Poppy Stella. Here, in addition to the great wearable items, they also have aromatic items. One of these items is a candle made by Feya Candles. For every candle purchased a meal goes to a child in a developing country. I am all about the socially-conscious items - even wore my TOMS today - and it was a pleasant treat to find an item with a mission to help communities and the people in them. Not to mention - the scents are so yum and refreshing.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Poppy Stella and would recommend that anyone with a sweet tooth for fashion head over to this Fells Point Baltimore neighborhood and spend some time (and money!) at Poppy Stella. For more information on Poppy Stella, visit: http://poppyandstella.com.
The MS Society of Maryland is holding a fundraising event that features women in business throughout Baltimore called Women on the Move. With great thanks to my father, Dr. Walter Royal III, and the MS Society, Royal Things is honored to donate a handmade, one-of a kind piece of jewelry (image above) to the auction that will be held at the event. The event will take place at the Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore, Maryland from 6-9 pm on September 18, 2014.
