They say accessories make an outfit and for me having a selection of different jewellery I can dip into to add to an outfit really helps me make a difference when styling my clothes.
Just want to wear a white t-shirt and jeans today? Add a fab necklace and it will take your outfit to the next level. The other bonus is costume jewellery is usually quite cheap so you can grow and a collection quite quickly without spending too much money.
With jewellery I am quite a believer of quantity over quality and will happily rummage through the sale areas of high street stores to find some bargain bits!
In todays blog I’ll share with you some the pieces I have bought recently, none of which cost over £5…
Crescent moon necklace /Primark
3D ring earrings / New Look
Heart earrings / New Look
Silver hoop earrings / New Look
Ribbon corsage / vintage (charity shops can be great to pick up unique and bargain priced pieces)
Tassel earrings / H&M
Rose gold disc necklace / Topshop
You’ll see these pieces appearing accessorising my regular outfits very soon! Who says you have to spend a lot to look great???
What bits have you got recently that you love?
Today’s outfit its based on a quirky look using stripes and an oversized button brooch. I have recently been watching American Horror Story: Freakshow and the costume design is AMAZING! Something about the stripes inspired me today (I have also bought a ringmaster style frock coat but more on that in future blogs!!!). Its 1950’s mixed with circus theming mixed with fashion must haves styling is on-point! Trust me.
I teamed a black and white striped shirt with navy blue fitted jumper, my trusty Bailey skinny jeans and black buckled boots. I added an oversized button brooch and my look was complete!
I got the brooch from Etsy ( with a couple of others) and love its cute, retro look. Teamed with the navy jumper it forms a rather nice, complete look – like its part of the jumper.
A simple everyday look thats a little bit different – thats why I love fashion styling.
Shirt – New Look
Jumper – BHS

Wearing my poppy with pride today. Obviously went for the big silky version! My grandfather was awarded the MBE for bravery during the second world war which makes me very proud. On a fashion note wearing Topshop chunky jumper, F+F biker coat and my new (fabulous) Dorothy Perkins Eden black jeggings. Have seen some great blinged up poppies, badge versions and wristbands. What type have you gone for?
