I Don't know about you, but I love accessories. It's an inexpensive way to update your wardrobe, or buy into a trend. Being a curvy girl, I know shopping can sometimes be a bit difficult, and what I love about accessories, is you're nearly always bound to find something! I'm a huge fan of statement necklaces, and have been known to spend a pretty penny on them. In my head, it's much better than buying a dress. If I buy a statement collar for example, I wear with it with most of my wardrobe. I could wear it over a shirt, for a classic twist, I can wear it on it's own with a strapless dress, or I can wear it to brighten up a knitted jumper. The possibilities are endless. I thought I'd do a little post on places I love to get accessories, and pick out things that would normally catchy my eye. My Favorite places to get accessories are: Primark, River Island, Topshop, Fran and Jane and Zara.
ZaraHere are a few of my favourite accessories from Zara. Zara in my opinion have really improved on the accessory front over the last year or two. Their clutches/bags are all designer inspired and their quality is great. I love their bags, and statement necklaces! The necklaces are retail for around €30-€40 cheaper than some of their competition! I love their scarves as well, they're a great price, and they come in an array of colours. so you're bound to find something to suit you and your wallet! They always have great sales, and you can get such bargains! The sale has been on for a number of weeks now, and I saw there had some lovely bits left! Well worth a little look ;)
River IslandRiver Island is another store I head to when I want to get something funky. Although I do recommend scanning Penney's/Primark before you do, as sometimes they have very similar stuff, and obviously River Island a-hella-a-lot more expensive! I love their funky necklaces, floral hairbands and colorful bags! Their bags are always pretty reasonable and come there's always so much choice! Their scarves are always great quality and come in lovely patterns and colours.Their summer collection is always gorgeous, and always gets me in the mood to go somewhere nice, with gorgeous brights, florals and tropical prints.
Penney's/PrimarkPrimark/Penney's are truly a life saver for us girls! For on trend pieces that don't break the bank to cheap as chips Jewellery. Whenever I want to update my wardrobe on the cheap I head to Penney's. I'm almost guaranteed to find a cool necklace for a fiver or a statement ring. This Summer Penney's have gorgeous stuff coming out! Loads of Neon's(yes!) and cool statement necklaces. I can't wait to get my grubby mitts on some on all the above!They have fabulous rose gold watches at the bargain price of €7, so if you're not really a watch person, but want in on the trend head to Penney's!
TopshopTopshop, as y'all know is probably one of my favourite stores. I do complain about the prices, and sometimes you can be a little bit unlucky with quality of their Jewellery, but I find once you don't throw them around the gaff, the won't break on ya! They're style I find is more alternative then the above stores, but they have items to suit everyone! Before Christmas I got a gorgeous Rose gold chain necklace, which I've received so many compliments on! I love their necklaces,as they tend to mix both gold and silver into one necklace, meaning you'll have double the opportunity to wear it. I'm a bit funny and won't wear any silver jewellery if I'm wearing any gold whatsoever, even hardware on bags!
