I will typically wear my thick black tights the whole year round, pausing for a break somewhere in the midst of summer where my pasty, reptile-like pins get a brief glimpse of sun. I’ve written before about why I love tights so much, and I really do, but while I love their practical nature, I also love embellishment and a bit of sparkle. Which is why I believe we should all be embellishing our tights, Dolce and Gabbana style.
I have a handbag dilemma on my hands. In the past week, two of my extra-special, carefully-saved-for handbags have broken. Yep. Two. My original DVF Harper Connect Bag saw the leather shoulder strap snap *sob* and my Rebecca Minkoff Bowery Bag saw the metal clasp break. I’m actually heartbroken.

There is nothing I love more than the smell of a new leather bag. Or the feeling of immense happiness when you walk along swinging a new number from the crook of your elbow. Handbags just make me happy. And this beauty from Alexander McQueen is no exception.
I just so happen to work with a super generous lady and for my birthday, alongside a few other gifts (I’m pretty sure they’ll feature on the blog soon) I got these Rebecca Minkoff beauties that have me back in the earring game. [Read more]
