Long Time Pointed Flats | ASOS | She and Hem | Accessories to Murder #19
Heart Shoes | ASOS | £22

Tired of wearing your heart on your sleeve? Well, wear it on your feet instead with these ASOS heart flats. Just in time for your Valentine’s Day outfit too! I’m thinking full on hearts this year, so these loooverly shoes are the perfect finishing touch to my hella twee look. Simple but just quirky enough to make it through the tough Accessories to Murder selection process.

Daniella Flats | Boden | £69.50

If those flats aren’t quite right for you, here’s another adorable option. This cute pair in ‘Poppy Red’ from Boden are blooming beautiful. We recently featured them on our Instagram and they got oh so much love. They have a pretty bow detail and are flat enough for the walk home after you’ve been wined and dined on Valentine’s Day…or for my walk to kitchen to get just one last biscuit.

Know an Eccentric or Two Swimsuit Top | Accessories to Murder #19 | She and Hem
Know an Eccentric or Two Swimsuit Top | $49.99 | Modcloth

I hadn’t really considered Modcloth when buying swimwear until about a year ago, when I spotted one of their incredible swimsuits online. I added this to my Pinterest ‘Wish List‘, causing a internet sensation mild murmuring, and the cossie to be repinned here, there and everywhere! I’ve kept a keen eye on their swimwear ever since, and it is always fun, flattering and fabulous. This swimsuit from Modcloth features cute cats and cupcakes floating around in space. Cats. In. Space. What else could you possibly want?

Cactus Cross Body Bag | Skinnydip Via ASOS | £30

I am a huge fan of all things Skinnydip, so I was pretty hyped when Jo sent me a link to this beauty. I predict the sales of this Skinnydip cactus bag, and matching luggage tag, are due to spike sometime soon, so hurry up and get your hands on this super succulent! Don’t put your hands on a real cactus, that would hurt and leave you feeling awful prickly.

We Now Present You Bag | Betsey Johnson via Modcloth | $68

This gorgeous Betsey Johnson bag might just be my perfect Valentine’s present right here. Can someone please point it in the direction of my husband? I’ve become quite the Betsey Johnson fan after featuring the incredible working phone in the recent January Sales post. I had so many messages from readers who loved the phone bag, hopefully this one will be just as popular. You may not be able to make calls with it, but it does have a really sparkly bow, so y’know, every cloud.

Kite Box Clutch | Kate Spade | £295.65

Yes, I know this is slightly more expensive than our usual Most Wanted novelty bags, but I’ve found it here via Nordstrom for much less than if buying direct from the Kate Spade website. How kind am I? Kate Spade has always been a high flyer in the world of whimsical clutch design, and my love for this kite bag is going up, up and away!

Yellow Tote Bag | New Look | She and Hem | Accessories to Murder #19
Yellow Structured Tote Bag | New Look | £24.99

I really recommend that everyone has at least one staple yellow handbag in their wardrobe. I use my yellow Boden Westminster handbag every single day and I absolutely love the pop of colour it adds to any outfit. New Look have just released this tote, their very own sunshiny dream, for a very affordable £24.99!

Pancake Socks | Topshop | She and Hem | Accessories to Murder #19
Stacked Pancake Socks | Topshop | £3.50

Stacked pancake socks.Sometimes, a picture really does say a thousand words. So instead of raving about these, I shall just give you my top stock sock tip. If I was going for the famous ‘3 for £8’ Topshop sock deal, I would also pick the Coffee and Donuts and I Loaf You pairs. Why? Because they are awesome.

See you next week,


Accessories to Murder #17: January Sales Bag Special

Hello, Happy New Year, and a hearty welcome to the 17th Accessories to Murder! It’s a January Sales bag special! Are you ready to delve into the world of amazing accessories? Excellent! Without further ado, here are the accessories that have made it onto this week’s She and Hem’s Most Wanted.

ASOS Bubblegum Clutch Bag £18.00 £9.00 | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
ASOS Bubblegum Clutch Bag | Was £18.00 Now £9.00 | ASOS

“I don’t want to settle down, I just want to chew gum!” Does anyone else remember that song by my favourite Norwegian pop star Annie? Just me? Ok! Don’t let that put you off my taste in bags, or you will miss out on gems like this ASOS bubblegum clutch which has been reduced to a sweet and not too sticky £9.

ALDO Cookie Crossbody | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
ALDO Cookie Crossbody | Was £25.00 Now £10.00 | ALDO via ASOS

If you, like me, have well and truly over indulged during this jolly festive season, you may need to cut back on the sweet treats during January. Don’t feel too crummy, because you can WEAR them instead with this studded cookie clutch. It looks so tasty, I want to take a bite out of it. At £10, it’s a right bargain, so go get one and let’s make biscuits the thing for 2016!

Clutch Bag in Rainbow Chevron Print | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
Moyna Clutch Bag in Rainbow Chevron Print | Was £70.00 Now £28.00 | Monya via ASOS

While I am a fan of novelty food related accessories, I like great patterns too, and there is no better pattern than the classic chevron. Look how fun this Moyna clutch is! Moyna really are the queens of the colourful clutch, although unfortunately for me and my bank balance, they usually cost around £100. Thanks to our pals at ASOS, this rainbow clutch is available for £28. You may not find a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, but it will add a few more colours to your January blues.

Red London Bag | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
Red London Bag | Was £99 Now £59 | Boden

There’s nothing grey(hound) about this bus. I’ve been a fan of this cute London bus bag since Boden released it a few months ago, so I’m super happy to see it’s now in the sale. If buses aren’t your bag, you can hail it in black taxi form too!

Teddy Shopper Bag | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
Teddy Shopper Bag | Was £199 Now £100 | Ted Baker
I’ve decided to let the dog out of the bag and bring this adorable shopper bag to your attention. Excuse me for being a little dog-matic here, but I would say it’s the best Ted Baker bag I’ve seen. Truly, it must be puppy love. It’s still a little on the pricey side compared to some of my other choices but can you really put a price on a such a hot (dog) bag? Woof!
That’s What I Call Cool Bag | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
That’s What I Call Cool Bag | Was $108.00 Now $64.99 | Betsey Johnson via Modcloth

This next one is really off the hook. This Betsy Johnson telephone bag has a working receiver that plugs into your phone that you can actually talk into. As you can imagine, it was so popular, that it recently went out of stock. Luckily for you, it’s back and has just been reduced, so act fast if you want one.

Star Wars | R2 With Me? Bag | She and Hem | January Sales Accessories to Murder #17
R2 With Me? Bag | $59.99 | Modcloth

Last of all, a real gem. It’s not in the sale but who blooming cares as it’s a Star Wars bag! R2 With Me? Heck yes I am! This IS the droid bag you are looking for. Whilst I decide if I’m more of a R2 or a BB-8 kinda girl, I genuinely recommend heading over to Modcloth for their excellent sale. I need it all.
