Classic is our Focus for September September 17, 2018 – Posted in: The Latest

Bold black and white patterns carry your style effortlessly from summer to fall. Patti Smith, assistant office manager at Herman Hiss & Company, shows us how. Patti loves everything from Mariana, but is especially fond of her Black and White Bracelet, which you can see in her portrait above. She said she always gets compliments on the bracelet. She can’t wait to expand her Mariana collection during the Trunk Show at Herman Hiss on Sept. 29.

Add some sparkle to the season with a gleaming Black Ceramic Watch ($199). Patti suggests pulling this soft and cozy Triangular Wrap ($19.95) over your lightweight summer tops to stay toasty warm on chilly nights. Subtle neutrals woven through this wrap make it the perfect match for every outfit. A deep, Blue Topaz and Diamond Pendant ($1,995) provides the finishing touch.

When you invite friends over to enjoy crisp fall nights together, serve snacks on this lustrous, Round Porcelain Serving Dish ($30). The dish not only looks beautiful, it’s also practical. Slide it into an oven to warm an appetizer before your guests arrive and then slip it into a dishwasher after they leave. It’s oven and dishwasher safe.

Black and white aren’t the only colors in Patti’s world. She loves every piece in this rich, new romantic paisley pattern. The Backpack ($108) would be perfect for college or high school.

Visit the downtown Bay City store this week and freshen up your look for fall.
