There’s a new video So today, we’re going to talk about how to accessorize But the first rule of style is to wear what you love and have fun with it, and you’re over 50 so you Can do whatever you like but? here’s some tips that I’d like to share with you and some things that Can make or break an outfit tip number one go out and find a statement piece a statement piece is something that? Kind of is wow you’ve got some jewelry on you love it And the color is great and it might be silver or gold or colored, but it just looks great on you And it’s probably big. I’ve chosen this this was really inexpensive, but I love the colors. It’s a statement I love it, and it makes me feel good now. This is really important when you’re wearing a statement piece like this That’s it this owns the show This is all that’s needed if you go ahead and add earrings big earrings To this look it looks too much. It’s just busy and You look completely overdone. This is too much going on and then if I added a ring as well Hey, there’s way too much going on so rule of thumb is big earrings you can wear a big ring or You know I’ve got this kind of a ring as well, so Hands and ears is great and some bracelets, but don’t do all three together, and if you’re wearing a big necklace just Have that part of your face lit up and then you can wear a ring and That’ll just be perfect if you’re wearing something big like this Go ahead and wear some tiny earrings If you like if you love wearing earrings if I’m just wearing these little tiny pearls they’re not going to compete with the big statement piece so keep those rules And you’ll be perfect tip number two wear something that will bring the eye down Anything that goes down makes us appear longer and slimmer, so it’s a great tip This is also a statement piece because it’s big so again I wouldn’t wear the matching earrings like these ones because This is enough If you have a look when I put the earrings on it’s just like they might look nice but it’s just a little bit too much and overdone and so I take these off and Just wear this I could also with this outfit. Just wear a beautiful statement ring like this and that would set this off really nicely or I could wear something like a band on my arm so This is really inexpensive and easy to wear You don’t wear too much, so just like this and this and that’s enough I could also layer this with a couple of bracelets just little Elastic bracelets, and that would be really good as well so here’s the thing keep it long kept I going down if you want to appear taller and Slimmer and this is a good way to do it. I’ll show you another way just another version of this okay Here’s another way to layer to add length and it’s making me look taller So I like the rule of three three different layers But you can do whatever you like This is just something that you could try and this top one can be you know it can be any height at all they can all be any height see the difference when I just adjust them, and you get a different look, so I’m sure you’ve got things at home that you could layer in threes and Straightaway you I goes down and you look taller It’s the best trick in the world so see what you’ve got at home and give this a try now I’ve taken the lengthening neck piece away and just wearing the earrings and bracelet it’s a completely different look but The eye isn’t drawing down. It’s just staying up here. Which is great. Just it’s just different ways to wear accessories to really accentuate the look My third tip is probably my most favorite. It’s so cool It’s repurposing what you’re not using anymore, so here’s a great example This is my mum’s wedding ring that She left me when she passed away, and I loved it, but it doesn’t fit and it’s it’s not my style so Here’s a really cool way that you can use something that may have been left to you or that You don’t a ring that you don’t wear on your finger anymore. I already had this it’s a choker I don’t really wear this much anymore, but what I thought about is Adding this ring to the center of the choker and you can just sew a little black thread to attach it and You’ve got a piece of beautiful homemade special to you jewelry it has a lot of sentimental value and It’s it’s completely unique. No one else in the world will be wearing this so This is a really cool trick if you’ve got one of your mums, or grandmother’s rings or an old ring. You don’t wear anymore Give this a try Okay, here’s another cool thing you can with the ring you can get two pieces of leather, so you live it like this Put it in into the middle of the Ring and Loop it through Just like that same on the other side Look like this through the ring and pull That through like this so you can put it on and make a choker, it’s so simple, it’s really modern, it’s Timeless and for me. This is my mum so I love wearing it and it made and again, it’s unique No one in the world has this piece of jewellery another way to wear this exact same piece is to take off one of your lip layers of leather and Just simply Put it around your neck and where at whatever length you like and Again if I was wearing it this way I would layer it With two other pieces of different lengths to make me look longer and taller How cool is that? Okay, here’s another cool thing that I’ve done this beautiful pendant. I got when I was probably in my early 20s and my husband gave it to me and I loved it But I’ve had it for so long and it’s on a really fine chain, and I just didn’t like wearing it anymore This piece of silk came as is but you could use leather or silk and what I’ve done is I’ve put it here so I wrap it around my neck once and Bring it down. I’ll show you Okay, so I wrap it around my neck and I’ve got this left over and I can either Tie it just like that and The Two different lengths here of the silver bits on the end is going to bring the eye down and make me look taller this is really cool and it’s something different and This piece here has a lot of sentimental value, and I’m not wearing it the ordinary way So that’s good so another way to wear. This is just to tie it around and put a bow and take the bow off to the side a little bit just for something different and Still got something coming down so it’s lengthening. It’s different. I made it myself and You have probably got a whole lot of things in your jewelry cupboard or jewelry drawer that you can Repurpose and where time and time again in a new way so I’d like to say thank you to Vanessa Kennedy who is my jeweler and She went through a few of these ideas with me the other day And thank you to all of you beautiful ladies for watching. Have fun With your style have fun accessorizing and have a great week

  2. Just found this channel and it's great!! Good work. I'm 45 but a huge believer in not giving up! I'm troubled when I meet women who have hit their 50s and act like it's over. It's not over!! I love your message. Very inspiring !!

  3. Great tips. I was always told that once you were finished dressing and accessorizing, to take a look in the mirror and remove one thing, that way your wouldn't be over accessorized! xoxo

  4. I’m turning 50 In June. Just found your channel. Can’t wait to see you thoughts and ideas. You’re a beautiful girl and I can’t wait to watch more. It’s a new decade for me to try new things. Thanks for all your advice.

  5. I love your Statement necklace. You look absolutely beautiful in Turquoise color. I wear my Blue shades and I love Black as well. Thanks. Keep on sharing.??

  6. I just found your channel recently and wanted to thank you for all the beautiful ideas!

Anyways, you are lovely and gorgeous, inside and out! I love your channel & am looking forward to watching more videos in the years to come.

  7. I look fat when I wear chokers. How can you stand having that much hair? Just asking as I have that much hair and it drives me nuts.

  8. Well i am a woman in my mid 60’s but I subscribed laugh out loud. Thats me in that profile photo a few months ago. Thanks for your information!

  9. One of my customers shared this very easy effective trick with me …. posture can make or break what you are showing to the people around you – instead of the shoulders back, drop them, tummy in butt etc ….(all the too hard rules) she said to me to imagine I have a small light inbetween my boobs on the bone and just to make sure it shines straight. It is really effective and easy to just shine your light xx I love it

  10. Love your channel please make more beauty make up and hair style videos!!!!! Please also make a video what you eat in a day, your such an inspiration!!???

  11. I rather like the necklace, earrings, and ring…seems to pull together nicely. You look lovely. Without the earrings, yes pretty, simple elegance; with the earrings, your eyes that shade, and the ring dresses your hand…SPECTACULAR! The look complete.Again the matching earrings just set the look. Without the necklace too drab and not as apealing to draw to slim. Something that special a piece of jewlery, if stolen or I lost it( I had an episode, one day I thought I had lost a piece of jewlery, but the clasp malfuctioned and thankful it lodged in my apparell) would be traumatic.

  12. Hi, I am curious as to how tall you are? I am 5’11”, no heels ? for me and the lift in the converse shoe is something that I avoid,

  20. Helloo, I just turned up 50 in December and would like to thank you for your beautiful video. Keep it up. You are a beautiful lady, always smiling. ???

  21. Ok I'm 6ft very top heavy and some Xtra lbs in the middle and I have a long neck so I do wear chockers that balance my upper half plus I have a lot of hair n big eyes. I'm going to be 54 in May of 2019. So how do I balance my body from head to toe..

  26. Schellea, I just love you! Do you have thoughts on how to deal with a figure that is already very long and lean? Flat chested, etc??

  27. I am enjoying watching your videos and have picked up a number of excellent tips. FYI you have used the expression “rule of thumb “ a number of times in your videos. It’s origin is a court ruling by 17th century English Judge Blackstone who, after a particularly vicious beating and maiming of a wife by her husband, told men they could not beat their wives with a stick bigger than the width of their thumb…..hence the rule of thumb. I try to avoid using this expression.

  28. I really enjoyed this video on eye colour/eye shadow colour. Because I am visual, you using the colour wheel really helps me understand the colour concept. ??

  29. Hey I have my grandmother’s real pearls, collar length like all the women wore in the 50’s. I would love to wear them….but I keep aborting the mission. What would you do with them?

  30. Just found your channel. Love it ! What do you use to hold your hair ? Mine has gone flat ! Since I have gotten older ,The products I used to use, no longer work anymore. Would love to see a video on hair. Thanks

  31. The idea of bringing the eye down making me look longer? That seems s foreign to me, lol. i may try it, but my belly is growing and I am already a pear. (ok, a pear with kinda bread shoulders, curvy with small chest, lol) Would that still make sense for me? Thankyou!! Many blessings! PS: I LOVE your ideas!!

  32. You are the first person on internet whose advice and tips I understand and apply immediately. Incredible. You really get to the point. And again, turqoise on you… fabolous.

  33. Big necklace then get your hair out of the way. They are competing in the same way as big earrings imho
