Fiesta Chic!

It is April in San Antonio, which means residents and tourists are surrounded by everything FIESTA – mariachis, cascarones, the Fiesta Royal Court, parades, festivals and more!  Fiesta in San Antonio can wear you out with over 100 events in just 11 days.  I personally managed to conquer 14 events last year.  This year, I plan on a mere 11.  Viva!

Being Fiesta chic is a must – with vibrant colors, florals, sequins, and more. One of my favorite accessory lines is Daphne & Lola.  You can jazz up any outfit in a blink of an eye, and at an affordable cost.  Daphne & Lola was founded by Michelle Shaw.  Michelle believes jewelry should be stylish, fun, and affordable.  You won’t have to think twice about adding a pop of color to your life with the Daphne & Lola Spring 2011 collection!

And for my lovely oenophiles – I have found a sassy white wine that will complete your look!

I’m an avid fan of Daphne & Lola, and can prove it first hand (fiesta style)!

Soooo, my sidekick (The Ceci Sipper) and I had the pleasure of attending Taste of Downtown at the Vidorra.
 

We mingled with Fiesta Royalty (can I count this as event #1?), ate yummy food, and sipped a spectacular wine – The Whip.  This wine is a blend of 43% Semillon, 21% Sauvignon Blanc, 21% Viognier, 7% Muscat Canelli, 5% Gewurztraminer, 3% Orange Muscat – talk about a little bit of everything!  Just like Fiesta has a little bit of everything to offer, so did this awesome wine.

So, I scout the room in my awesome Daphne & Lola necklace and festive colors, having a grand ol’ time.  Here I am with El Rey Feo, Bill Drain.

Here I am with a glass of Whip in hand taking a short break from mingling.

Make sure you stand out in the Fiesta crowd by adding Daphne & Lola pieces to your wardrobe.  Here are some signature pieces to get you going!

This bold piece is definitely an eye-catcher.  And, I would say it could easily correlate to the bold components of the Sauvignon Blanc grape represented in the Whip wine.

I LOVE big rings, and this one is perfect!  Hmmmm, we can match up that lovely Orange Muscat with this piece!

-
I love these bold, orange pieces – wear them all together for the perfect Fiesta Chic look!

Here is close up of the one I’m wearing at the event.

-
Wear these pieces alone, or start layering on the color for an even bolder look!
-
Get in the know with Daphne and Lola by hosting a trunk show, or scheduling a style consultation with Michelle Shaw!   This line will satisfy all of your accessorizing needs and wants without breaking the bank.

Viva Fiesta San Antonio!

And before I depart from this first Vinously Chic post, I have to say THANK YOU to the Ceci Sipper for inviting me to join you on Vinously Speaking.  I feel honored to be a guest writer, and I look forward to our future adventures!

Voguishly Yours,
