Last week Tootsies showcased some of the great looks Natori has to offer at their Designer Mix and Mingle.  The great things about meeting a designer and seeing their personal style is you begin to understand the story behind the work.  From her background as a successful executive in the financial world to a powerhouse in the fashion world she exudes not a quiet confidence and subtle chicness.

Some of my favorites for the trunk show were the strong bracelet and necklaces combination presented at the show.  Strong mixes of black, gold, and silver not just provide an accent piece for an outfit, but it also pulls together influences from all over the globe.  With ease an intricate gold showstopper or versatile black beaded necklace/belt hints at tropical or tribal cultures from miles away.  The great handmaid pieces were surprising light adding to their flexibility and ease to wear and flexibility when mixing and matching in your closet.  Natori trunk show (7) Natori trunk show cuff up closeWhen paired with Natori fashion basics you have an opportunity to blend the basic and ornate in a way that really works to showcase your personal style, vision, and personality.
