“Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.” So spoke the stoic Greek philosopher Epictetus, and we here at Nashville Arts are inclined to agree with him. So we set out with Nashville model Ashley Clapp and a sack full of the coolest artcessories we could find to adorn her.

We stopped off at Cosmetic Market, Consign2Design, Dillard’s, Imogene + Willie, Kate Spade, LeQuire Gallery, Levy’s, Louis Vuitton, Stuart Weitzman, and Wolford for an assortment of hats, shoes, scarves, tights, handbags, and more, gathering everything a woman needs to artcessorize herself.
