When thinking about fashion, most people are reminded of the clothes first, but there are so many different aspects that go along with those…hats, purses, shoes, jewelry, etc. If you have the right pieces to pair with your outfit, they can be used to help define it and make it stand out. Donna Flora designer, Squinternet Larnia has been bringing to life creations which do that and more.
