Your choice of evening bag says more about you than you might think. The options are endless: the cross-body' for the safety conscious among you, the bracelet bag that poses as both costume jewellery and a bag all in one (think the Chanel russian doll bag) and of course my favourite the 'clutch'. A clutch bag should tie together your whole outfit. I often go for embellished ones, however a new style has been continuously catching my eye. Olympia Le-Tan has created extremely high brow beautifully tongue-in-chic book clutches. So now you can make a statement and wear your favourite literary classics...Imagine the possibilities...
Favourite creations include:
'Dracula' for a black day
'Great Expectations' for anyone who wishes to ooze ambition
Open November issues of British magazines and what you will see bursting from the glossy pages are headbands, not hideous eighties velvet headbands but ornate jewelled headbands worn by the ladies in the 'The Tudors.' As a huge fan of costume jewellery, the headband is a welcome addition to my jewellery box, however finding the right one is more difficult that you might think. Dolce and Gabbana A/W 2012 collection was bursting with incredible headbands however they are not my favourite. My favourite headbands have been created by Sophie McElligott, the latest export from Central St.Martins, McElligott has channelled her love of Renaissance costume dress with her love of accessories, the product being a collection of amazing headbands.
