All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.  – Pablo Picasso

As a kid, I was taught to pick up crayons or markers and put color down to convey ideas and feelings.  Isn’t that what art is?  Of course it is!  It’s a way to show others who you are, what you do, what you like and what inspires you.  It’s a catalysis some people use to heal from hurts and celebrate achievements.

This coming fall, I plan to homeschool my oldest son and in time, I may bring home our middle son.  A few months ago as I was creating a giant world map and other art pieces for the room, I gave the boys empty canvases to paint whatever they wanted to.  Jackson, my oldest, had been given an assignment a month or so ago in art class at his public school to use oil pastels to recreate a still life picture of flowers in a vase of sorts.  When he brought it home, I asked where he got it because he had done such a good job it didn’t occur to me at that time that he had done it himself.  I was so impressed by the piece that it’s not hanging behind our dining room table, which is a focal point when you walk into the room, and our home for that matter.  You could just see the pride in his eyes as I gave his masterpieces it’s place of honor.  What do you think he painted on his empty canvas?  A recreation of the original oil pastel.  That accomplishment of being able to do such a good job has stuck with him and he, as a result, recreates it many times over.  It creates

warm fuzzy feelings for him. It’s a way for him to channel a good time/feeling/accomplishment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So let me ask you.  How do you express yourself artistically now that you’re an adult.  Has your catalyst of self expression changed?  I know for me, I use different art forms.  I love to crochet, knit, sew and cook.  Yes I believe cooking is an art form!  I also very much enjoy making my outfits a piece of art.  I have also explored ways to use my body as a canvas…no not body paints or tattoos.  Just accessories!

I have learned so much about accessorizing in the last few years and it has taken my boring worrobe to new heights.  A simple grouping of necklaces can

Use a color wheel when accessorizing! It will help you to pick things that go together and ensure that you look amazing!

make all the difference in the world.  Add a pop of color by way of a summer shoe and a handbag.  You don’t have to purchase the expensive names and high-priced tags to look amazing!  If pattern on clothing scares you, pick a solid top

in your favorite color of the season. In art class as far back as grade school, we were shown a color wheel, right?  Remember that pie shaped poster your art teacher would hold up to show you primary and secondary colors?  Well get yourself one and post it in your closet.  That will be your best friend when learning how to accessorize!  If you want more instruction on how to use a color wheel to put an outfit together, click on the color wheel to the right and it will take you to an amazing write up on the subject.

When you apply this concept, you will realize how invaluable Miche handbags are!  It can be expensive to have to purchase a whole collection of designer handbags in all different shades, colors, patterns, textures and styles.  With Miche, you purchase one of the four base bags that fits your lifestyle and then shells to compliment your wardrobe.  You can take it a step further and purchase additional handles and purse charms to totally change the look of your shells when you need to refresh your stash of shells.  Not only does Miche make it easy to accessorize and stay in style, there’s no more dumping your bag out when you want to change your handbag.  You simply take detach the outer shell from your base bag and replace it with another!  What used to take 5 minutes can now be done in as little as 5 seconds, no kidding, no exaggeration.

Your mom used to encourage you to be creative as a child didn’t she?  Is she creative now?  How well does she transfer creativity into her outfits?  If she’s having trouble with that, why not get a Miche for her for Mother’s Day?  We have a great promotion going just for moms!  Not only that, with a qualifying purchase you can get vintage shells to go with her new base for a fraction of the list price!  She has taught you well over the years.  Remind her that she’s still smart and creative and that she’s beautiful!

There is an artist in all of us now just like there was on in us as a child.  Figure out how to ignite that passion to create and explore color as an adult.  If you don’t think you’re crafty or have drawing/painting talent, try to incorporate some color and texture into your wardrobe.  Make your body a canvas of sorts and see how much better you feel!  I promise it is really hard not to smile when you’ve put together and wear an amazing outfit!

Cheers,

Andrea

If I know what a mother wants, it’s to be recognized as special and appreciated. On Mother’s Day, true, but every other day in between.  Read below to see how you can give her a gift this May 13th that will last for years to come and continually remind her that you love her and remember her every day of the year.

Women of every age want to feel beautiful.  As we get older though, we start to second guess our ability to keep up with styles and trends. We begin to wonder if we are starting to look like that older lady in church or at the grocery store whom we used to think as kids dressed herself in the dark before leaving the house.  With Miche, she can stay in style without having to try.

Below are just a few ways you can know for sure you will be in style at every turn.

  • Our designers keep a hawk eye on the runways in Paris and New York.  You can be sure that the design and color styles and trends on the runways will be reflected onto our shells and accessories.
  • Miche releases new designs MONTHLY!
  • Each shell and accessory is a available on a limited supply basis.  What’s that mean? Everything you see in the catalogue is current and up-to-date.
  • Our products are affordable.  New shells can be purchased often and even put on wishlists for your birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day or just because.

As always, if you have questions or need help picking out the PERFECT handbag or accessories, just drop a comment below.

Cheers!
