What better way to update an outfit from last spring then with a new bag?  Here are some of our favorites that recently arrived at Adelé:

We love the fact that all of these would look great with a cocktail dress, feminine suite, or a crisp white blouse and jeans.  So versatile, yet so chic.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas - Second Installment

Pamper your favorite lady with bath and body products from MOR Cosmetics.  Inspired by traditional apothecary, these Australian designers blend age old and contemporary ingredients presented in covetable packaging.  We can't decide which of the scents we have in our store is best.  Sugar Rose Tiger Lily is soft and feminine, Basil & Grape is sweet and summery, and Black Currant Iris is rich and seductive.

The Hand & Body lotion is $20 for 11.8 oz and the Hand & Body Wash is $18 for 11.8 oz.  Or try the beautifully silk hand cream, which retails for $16 for 2.7 oz.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas - First Installment

We discovered these vintage post cards of Churchill Downs and Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate and thought they would make a special gift for Kentuckians looking for something unique.  These wonderful custom découpage trays were designed in conjunction with Ben Busko, 26, New York's preeminent découpage artist and founder of Ben’s Garden.

The Derby scene measures 4.5" x 6.5" and retails for $68.  The Ashland scene measures 4.5" x 9" and retails for $74.  Each tray is signed by the artist and is a limited edition of six per style.

Horses & Money, Honey

It's our favorite time of the year in Kentucky:  The Spring Meet at Keeneland followed by the Run for the Roses.  Why not bring yourself a little bit of luck at the track by wearing Mija's delicate Horseshoe Necklace?

Available in Sterling Silver and 18K Gold Vermeil with white sapphires, each necklace has an Italian chain, allowing it to be worn at 3 different lengths.  Beautiful, but understated.

Even though certain morning shows have been going a little too crazy over the upcoming nuptials between William and Kate, we must admit that we are getting pretty excited ourselves.  The Kings Road Redux collection from Rosanna is the perfect accoutrement for your scones and tea.

Made of refined porcelain with crowns emblazoned in 24k gold, your guests will surely feel like royalty while watching the future King and Queen of England tie the knot.

A Touch of Pink

We were inspired by this photograph found on one of our favorite design blogs The Adventures of Tartanscot.

We started thinking about how fun it would be to add a touch of pink to a room this Spring and looked in our Design Library for inspiration from our lines. 

For the not so faint at heart, we would suggest this new Maharani Chandelier from Currey and Co.

Add some glamour and sophistication by upholstering a wall with Designers Guild Forzano Cassis silk.

For those wanting to take a more subtle approach, add a few throw pillows such as this Linen and Jute pillow from Lacefield Designs.

Thinking Pink this Spring will surely put a smile on your face.  Who wouldn't want to relax in a room with this gorgeous accent color, while sipping on a glass of pink champagne, of course.
