Ode to Accessories..

I am about to bastardise the divine Ms. Jane Austen and I hope you will forgive me but it is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of any fortune whatsoever, must love to shop. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, those few women who do not like shopping and take no comfort in spending a couple of hours at the mall.. I am not one of them. There is nothing like the heady rush you feel when finding an amazing bargain; spotting the perfect pair of shoes, fabulous bag or gorgeous bangles, earrings or necklaces. Since I don't have the budget of Paris Hilton I do pride myself on finding good buys, the trick - buy things that look expensive but aren't.. Easier said than done I know but it is possible. Here are a few examples of my current obsessions! 
Comfy and fabulous, best of all bought with a Christmas voucher and best of all they look like Christian Louboutins without the price tag! 
My latest purchase making me smile.. Bought number 535 May in May and best of all it was bought with another gift card. 
Multi coloured strappy flats were a gift from my gorgeous partner, tan platforms and pumps with orange bows from Dorothy Perkins (God I love internet shopping) and those leopard print beauties were bought last season and are still divine! 
Yep I am a sunglasses fanatic, all cheap and cheerful (which suits me fine because I can have heaps of them) 
Rings, always loved them and always will.. Check out the faux Yves Saint Laurent adorning my first finger, picked it up for $15 from Diva! 
Adore my watch, gold and silver accents with enough bling to make PDiddy proud. The beautiful flower ring was R20 from Mr. Price... 
Nothing fake about this baby.. My 30th birthday pressie from my BFF Tegan, a stunning and classic Michael Kors wallet. 

Fashion is a fickle mistress at the best of times but some amazing accessories will stand you in good stead for seasons and best of all you don't have to break the bank in order to acquire them! 

Thanks for stopping by!
