Shoes & Accessories haul!
By Tina A. - March 22, 2010
How are you my lovely readers?
Hope you 've had a great Monday (or having one so far)! :)
So, time to make a little fashion related post and share with you my most recent shoes and accessories purchases (and by that I mean over the last couple of months) for the upcoming spring/summer season!
First of all, the bag:
This is actually an ebay purchase, and I was lucky to find it, as I 've been looking for a beige/grey bag in quite a long time.
It's a Claudia Canova hobo bag, and even though I 'm not really a big fan of this brand (especially judging from the ones I 've seen on ASOS), the simple design of this one caught my eye immediately.
It's a very large hobo bag, roomy enough to hold all my usual crap, only a lot more! The colour is a lovely, light, warm-toned grey if that makes any sense, the type that will compliment any summery outfit! The bracelet detail is really nicely done as well (in fact 2 of them could easily be actual bangles), but it kind of makes the bag look a bit too much like a Jimmy Choo Saba wannabe in my eyes! If only it didn't have the little "Claudia heart Canova" tag, it would have been so much cuter!
Pair no. 1: Sky high platform peep toe heels, in royal blue, by Bershka. And I mean a good 5 inches here, so that probably makes them the highest pair I own! I plan to wear these with drop crotch trousers and shorts, well, I do have to get used to their...height first!
Pair no.2: Simple black gladiator wedges. Absolutely nothing remarkable here, just an everyday summer shoe with a bit of a heel (I only have flat sandals or very tall strappy night time appropriate ones, so this is a pair that will come in handy).
Pair no.3: Or the find of the year as I 'd love to call them. They 're the ribbon tie sandals from Miss Sixty that the lovely Tali @ The Gloss Goss blogged about a little while back. There's actually a funny story about them: when they first came out (3 years ago if I 'm not mistaken) I hated them. A friend of mine had bought them, but I just didn't see the appeal! By the time they started to grow on me, they were already off the stores, making ebay my only option, but noone seemed to be selling them in my size! When I managed to find them in my size and brand new, I could not let them get away! Score!
And, lastly the new jewellery additions (all from ASOS):
The fishbone necklace was a completely spontaneous buy, but I thought it would make a pretty summer necklace! Fishbones are also considered to be good -luck charms, so, that's always a plus!
Now, about the little bracelet set, the Hills are to blame! And namely Kristin Cavallari, as she wears a very similar set of bracelets on her wrist in almost all of her casual outfits on the show! I initially thought of building a similar set piece by piece, but ASOS helped me out and saved me some time and effort!
The wing ring is just gorgeous, not much to say about it, except that it was one of those "love at first sight" type things! I love it and wear it often during the day as well!
I think I got everything most areas covered now!
What about you? What shoes or accessories will you be getting this spring/summer?
And do you usually plan your purchases ahead or just decide in the store? :)
