All Feathered Up!

We all know that fashion is an ever evolving beast, but does it evolve and revolve on a 360 degree axis?  The reason I say this is because we never see the true end of a trend.  Fashions of yesteryear, long gone and forgotten, always reemerge years later. 

The latest fashion comeback emerged last year and although waning is still lingering around - FEATHERS.  I’ve seen them adorn everything from clothes to bags to jewelry.  I’ve picked up a few feathered pieces along the way and below are two of my recent favorites that I’ll be rocking into summer. 

I picked up this colorful feather and spiked necklace for $16.00 from PnkElephant.  I’ve only worn it once because I bought it in the winter but it will be one of my staple pieces this summer.  I figure it will go well with tops that have a low neckline.  

Unfortunately, this piece is sold out but check out PnkElephant for other great accessories.

I was looking for a pair of cheap black ballet flats at Target to tide me over until I made my splash in the Tory Burch pond when I came across these:

These faux suede thong sandal has a once inch heel (a/k/a flat) and has beaded and feathered detailing.  I haven’t been able to wear them yet because the weather has not quite broken for me to wear open toe shoes, but considering the faux leather cushioned sole, I can’t imagine any discomfort from these sandals.  

This Shoe Kill was made at Target for the small price of $19.99.  Find them at your nearest Target store or online at

Although, I'm not sure how much longer the feather trend will be around, but with these two pieces, I plan to have fun with it while it last.
