Accessories to Murder #6

The sun has got his hat on, but unfortunately it’s sold out everywhere, so I won’t feature it this weeks in A2M6!

The past six weeks of Accessories to Murder have flown by, a lot like the little girl hanging from the delightful balloon brooch pictured below. This beautiful brooch was handmade by MyBearHands, who has an absolutely cracking collection on Etsy. I really love all of the goodies in this collection and have my eye on several of the necklaces.

Oliver Bonas seems to have mastered something which I thought was impossible, and that is how to successfully sell clothes, accessories, homeware, furniture and gifts all under one roof. They do it, and they do it well. I can’t think of another shop where I would actively seek to buy both a pretty summer dress and a wooden bedside cabinet. I’ll certainly be spending a lot of time there at the moment because they have a fantastic sale, which includes this little beauty. For under £10 you should definitely try and grab an antelope necklace before he leaps off!

Sticking with the animal theme for a moment, I give you this sleek fox belt from Yumi (who also have a great sale on!). I’m on the lookout for great belts, as I always seem to stick to my trusty waist cincher from Dorothy Perkins, so this foxy number really caught my eye. It’s very versatile and comes in black or brown.

The last animal inspired accessory is an item that every girl should own. Never again will you have to be more than an arms length away from a quick G&T fix with this zoo themed hip flask from Topshop. It’s so fun, so flamin-go and get one!

So, you are going to need somewhere to store that sneaky tipple. Here are my current top two bags of the moment. A lovely red structured bag with a scalloped trim and handy handle from Glasgow based Hey Sailor, and an absurdly pretty vintage inspired clutch from Oh My Love. Oh how I love it!
