Just introduced Bella Taylor New Fall Quilted handbags


I am so excited to share a sneak peak of the new fall 2012 Bella Taylor handbags and accessories with you. Six scrumptious new patterns in all the hottest fashion colors. In addition to the new fabrics there will be a new large cross body handbag similar to the hipster but…LARGER. Also for all you ipad, nook and tablet users out there a quilted tablet case to protect your tech stuff. Many of my ladies had been using the book covers for their ipads so this is a nice addition in my opinion to the line.

Bogg bags – Perfect for the Beach


I had to do a quick little write up here.  From a personal, many of my customers know that diving is my out of work passion.  I watch and wait and watch and wait till the water warms up here in Florida and the swell and wave conditions reach that perfect trifecta for shore diving.  Don’t get me wrong, boat diving is awesome too, but we just don’t always get that much time off.  Vero Beach all the way down too Miami has one of the largest coral reef systems in the World and most of it is close enough to shore dive.  For my non dive customers, this means, close enough to walk in with the tank on your back and submerge into the wild blue yonder.

This week, I got an opportunity to do two days of shore diving, Monday & Tuesday.  One off RioMar in Vero Beach and one off Pepper Park in Fort Pierce.  With shore diving, you have to think about the gear and what to do with it.  Rio Mar was straight forward, chuck it in the back of the jeep.  Pepper Park bit more challenging, no showers where we parked and we wanted to sit on the beach.  We stripped down and chucked the wetsuits and wet stuff in the BOGG BAG and chilled on the beach for a few hours.  The BOGG BAG floats so you can take it in the water and rinse gear.  It has about 4″ on bottom where there are no holes.  This was nice after when we found the showers to use as a dunk tank for camera and gear in freshwater.  I have to tell you, this is my last Beach bag I will be buying!

We are getting low in our store for these but I have another huge shipment arriving Friday or Monday.  Customers are buying one and coming back and buying multiples for friends as gifts.  Only $59.95, it is the perfect price range for a unique hostess gift in this area.  Don’t miss out on these!  I am telling you, for the little space they take up in the car, you can get so much in it.  For wet gear, 2 wet suits, 3mil, 2 pairs of fins, 2 snorkels, 2 masks, gloves, hoodie, camera, lights and still had room for the empty garbage from the beach.  It was light carrying back up and it cleaned up in no time.  Rich chose a red BOGG BAG to match the jeep and it is permanently in the bag of the jeep for stowing stuff so it does not slide around.  Even Lily Winnail from Hunger Games has her trendy Tangerine Tango one! For you golfers out there the BOGG BAG has also been seen on the PGA tour.  I even had one lady that bought two bright colors to use as Easter baskets for her college gals!  She said they could use it for laundry after.  How unique!

Country Club and Bejeweled Bella Taylor Handbags all 50% off


This week at Scentsations, we have some new 50% off discounts.  These are while supplies last and are closeouts on Bella Taylor quilted handbag patterns that will be going.  Huge new delivery of Bella Taylor purses and accessories.   Katy handbag and wristlet wallets are back in stock and going fast. 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We also have a new 50% off section for jewelry, accessories and scarves.  These are last items or ones we need to make room for new deliveries.  How it works is that whenever I am working in store and reviewing what is coming in for the week, I go through and deeply discount items that we may not have matching items for or that we have had in for a while.  This happens 3 or 4 times a week.  I do not post these online and these clearance accessory items do not usually last more than 3 or 4 days.  The reason why I tell you this is because, you should be popping in every time you come to the mall to avoid missing out on a piece you like.  I had one lady get upset because a necklace she saw two weeks ago, was not in stock anymore.

Fashion is fun and nobody wants to see the same things at Scentsations over and over again.  That would not be fun!  This is the reason why we price our jewelry and accessories so fair.  You see, it, and like it buy it!  I have no many new things coming in from made in America flip flops to $%^#& (well that would b no fun telling you everything!)

Hubby Rich’s birthday is Monday so I am giving him 4 days off and I will be in the store for Saturday & Sunday so in honor of this Scentsations is promoting all regular priced jewelry, belts, & scarves at Buy 1 get 1  at 50% off for Saturday & Sunday this weekend.  Two day only sale!

So stop by today, see what’s new, chat with Rich & I and meet our old/new girl Lauren next week.  She is new for Vero Beach location but old as she used to asst manage for me in the Merritt Island location.

2012 new Spring color trends for fashion & home


I am seeing the same colors from fashionable scarves to home decor.  If you have not heard Pantone, they are the leading experts in all things color.  We all know that Tangerine Tango was chosen as the color of the year 2012 from my previous fashion blogs and it was not an unintentional choice.  An electric orange red color is uplifting, and energizing! It’s also been noted to look great with almost every skin tone. You will definitely see a lot of great examples of using this energizing color in any type of furniture line, finishes and materials.  Tangerine Tango and Cockatoo look divine together.  Very South Beach!

At Scentsations, as we become more involved with helping our customers find the right accessory or handbag, I feel that it is very helpful to make sure we listen to our customers need and help them to incorporate the new color trends with their existing wardrobe.   We tend to be a little more flexible ith color here in Florida.  Whether it is a bright scarf added to a basic business suit or a handbag statement to make heads turn, I feel it is important to educate them on staying current.  I find that many of my customers just thought if it was a color they saw alot, that meant it was hot.  Not true, while Neon is showing up in plenty of chain stores, you just can’t tell me that you are going to get a timeless, classic look with that.   A neon bangle however added to a classic starfish capri and a tangerine tango top is FUN!  I just can’t consciously set my ladies who are now able to relax and enjoy their lives in a Neon orange pair of capri.   Remember, it is all about building a wardrobe.

For spring 2012 designers are inspired by diverse influences, showcasing a range of styles and lifestyles, from free and playful and light and breezy, to contemporary classics. Colors likewise reflect these differing moods, encapsulating vivid brights, soft muted tones and fun-loving pastels.
“Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “They
have learned how color can help them alter a mood and provide the vitality and enthusiasm that enables them to experiment with new looks and color combinations.”

Let’s break these colors down a bit…

Provocative Tangerine Tango:  This juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone’s outlook this spring. Make me want to take a bite out of life!

Solar Power:  A bright radiant jolt of energy that  exudes warmth and cheer.

Bellflower:  This distinct ornamental purple, exudes uniqueness and creativity.

Cabaret:  The name says it all.  sassy, sexy and voluptuous.  Scintillating and sexy, Cabaret is a sensual and intense rosy-red — an excellent
choice for summer clothing and cosmetics.

Sodalite Blue:  This is  classic maritime hue that brings order and calmness to mind.  Like the cool breeze in your hair on a sailboat.  This color like an anchor is dependable and will hold down most other colors in this palette.

Cockatoo:, This tactile blue-green, is sure to make your spirits soar. This unusual hue adds a whimsical touch to the palette and will surely make a statement this spring.  Love it with Tangerine Tango.

Margarita:  This piquant yellow-green, lifts spirits with its refreshing and stimulating glow.

Sweet lilac:  Reminiscent of a blossoming garden on an early spring morning, fragrant Sweet Lilac evokes the fresh scents of summer. This delicate pinkish lilac adds a touch of romance and femininity to any wardrobe.

Driftwood:  Natural versatile neutrals add practicality to this season’s brights. This beige and grey blend adapts easy with other colors with a slightly weathered feel.

Starfish:  Perfect warm summer neutral, complement all colors featured in this season’s top 10.

For an ultra-bold vibrant look this spring, try mixing Bellflower with Tangerine Tango and Cabaret. Combine Margarita with Sweet Lilac and Cockatoo for a subtle
alternative, or combine Margarita with Sweet Lilac and Driftwood for a more practical variation. Solar Power is best juxtaposed with Sodalite Blue. For a safer
bet, add a natural neutral like Starfish to the mix.

again, look at the color pallete and how they flow together.
