Awesome Accessories for SS13

There is nothing I like more than an awesome accessory – it doesn’t matter if you’ve piled on or lost a few pounds, the loyal accessory will always be your pal. And a strategically draped scarf or statement necklace or six can serve to disguise a myriad of sartorial or grooming disasters - from toothpaste stains to blemishes, bad hair days and even, I hope, mismatched shoes. (This has actually happened to me - I should never get dressed in the dark.)I have a whole new crop of favourites since we last took a peek inside my dress-up box - meet my current loves!

Spring Accessory favourites
ONE I finally replaced my beloved Chanel sunglasses with these Ray-Ban Emma’s. Yes, I may have been swayed by the name, although the stylish cat eye frames were also an influencing factor. Coincidentally I first heard of these from another Emma, over at Ol’ Green Eyes, when she wrote about Smart Buy Glasses. That’s where I picked up these lovelies and you can check them out on the website here.

TWO Me and Kashmiere have been on my radar since I included one of their stunning scarves in this trend report. Mr Fluff, the darling, was clearly paying close attention because one of their 100% cashmere numbers turned up under the tree this Christmas.  Super soft and a mix of blue and grey animal print, it adds a touch of luxury to everyday outfits.
THREE No, it’s not Chanel, but it is chic, black and quilted, and will do till that classic 2.55 is in my grasp. I picked up this vintage clutch on Oasap for $26.00 and it’s my new favourite night-time bag. Understated but classy, it goes with all my dressier pieces and I love the simple silver clasp.

FOUR These Emi-jay ribbon hair ties arrived courtesy of Red Ruby Rouge, an online boutique in Northern Ireland. They may look unassuming, but have fast become my favourite hair accessory – they don’t break or strain my hair like elastic bands and they look cute (as opposed to painful and/or messy) around my wrist. Great back story, too – the brand was started by two entrepreneurial teenage friends who hand-made every piece. Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker and the Kardashians have all been pictured with these on their wrists or adorning their tresses – you can check ‘em out here.
FIVE This pearl studded Alice Hannah collar was a Christmas gift from my best pal that dresses up all of my numerous black dresses and tops. A quick Google tells me she’s a London based knitwear and accessory designer, and you’ll find her stuff on ASOS.
