New accessories are always a good idea. Well – new anything, really. And now that spring has well and truly sprung – especially being the season of fashion weeks around the world – there’s no better excuse to update and add to the accoutrements shelf (or what have you) than the new season that celebrates so much.
I’ve partnered with my long-time favourite online luxury retailer, LUISAVIAROMA, to bring you some of my spring and fashion week must-have accessories to celebrate the season in (and of) style.
They say you’re never fully dressed without a smile. That expression doesn’t really apply to me because fashion stole my smile – I ‘smize’ instead (definition: smiling with your eyes). But for me, you’re never fully dressed without… accessories! My ultimate being a bad ass bag, sexy shades and a killer pair of heels. I’m such an accessory junkie – the more glam and high end the better! You don’t always have to fork out a ton in clothing but one designer thing that you can indulge in that’s guilt-free is an accessory item (or two… or more) that can be reworked and reused time and time again. They become a part of you beloved collection and transcend all seasons. They dress up a drab outfit, and just make you feel that little bit extra 😉
As an advocate for high-low dressing, I believe designer accessories can really take your outfit to the next level. Be it some shades, purse, jewellery, belt or heels – they just add that je nais se quois, that finishing touch to your outfit. And when it comes to fashion week, it’s always fun to make like Wintour and throw on some bossy blockers (shades) and show off that pretty purse in the frow (front row).
Whenever I need some killer add-ons stat, I jump onto LUISAVIAROMA and see the latest offerings. Being as sunglasses and bag obsessed as I am (shoes too, needless to day) – I hunt for the perfect pieces to compliment my all-white power suit. And whaddaya know – I’ve found the most perfect pieces that stand out yet compliment and help achieve my outfit goals. Welcome to my wardrobe – Gucci shades and Valentino bag (that match-oh-so perfectly with my Rockstuds)! We’re going to seriously slay some streets together… 😉
