Accessories to Murder #36

Hello and welcome to the 36th Accessories to Murder. 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.

Accessories to Murder #36 | She and Hem
Game Over Crossbody Bag | £28.00 | Skinnydip Via Topshop
Accessories to Murder #36 | She and Hem
Secretly A Mermaid Cross Bag | £25.00 | Skinnydip Via Topshop

We start with a terrific twosome from Topshop. Both the Game Over bag and Mermaid Bag are made by Skinnydip and are a heck of a lot of fun. Being a lady of a certain vintage, I remember loving playing on my GameBoy when I was growing up, so I’m a big fan of the first bag. The second is dedicated to all of our aquatically minded followers, and I know we have a good few! What a catch.

Transparent Frame Sunglasses | £12.99 | Zara

It’s finally bright enough to wear sunglasses out without looking a bit odd. That’s never stopped us here at She and Hem, but hooray for the sun, and let’s hope it lasts! I spotted these whilst browsing the Zara website and while they aren’t as colourful as the sunglasses we usually feature, they look chic without being too sensible.

Multi-Coloured Satchel | £35 | La Redoute

I’m really excited to have spotted this fab satchel from La Redoute, which also comes in a wonderful yellow version. I usually go straight for anything that comes in yellow, but I’m a big fan of the grey and pale blue combo on this beauty. It looks a lot like the more expensive brands, but comes in at about half the price at £35! Thanks La Redoute!

Life in the Splash Lane Swimsuit in Chevron | $99.99 | Modcloth

I haven’t featured anything from Modcloth in a while, so this week they are back with a bang with this incredible chevron swimming costume. It’s so pretty! The yellow piping looks so flattering, especially around the waist. Gosh, if I was going on a summer holiday this year, this would go straight into my basket.

Red Apple Snow White Bag | £10 | Primark

Keep the doctor away with this fruity little number. Whether you have a fancy dress party coming up or you just love novelty bags, this apple bag from Primark is a right old bargain. This is the first time I’ve featured anything from Primark on Accessories to Murder because I have to admit, I do struggle with their website! Does anyone else feel a bit frustrated with it?

That’s all for now folks. Until next week, keep accessorising!

Accessories to Murder #34

Hello and welcome to the 34th Accessories to Murder! 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.

Accessories to Murder #34 | She and Hem | Thunder Egg Topshop and More!
Dawn Mermaid Shirt | £44 | Sugarhill Boutique

Yeah, this shirt is not technically an accessory but does anyone mind when it’s got pretty mermaids on? No they do not. The coral and aqua mermaid print was hand drawn in Sugarhill Boutique’s Brighton studio, so it’s pretty unique too!

Accessories to Murder #34 | She and Hem | Thunder Egg Topshop and More!
Sadie Sunglasses | £59 | Boden

Bad news guys. I have lost my beloved Boden sunglasses. I had this pair until very recently, but now I can’t find them anywhere. It’s a real tragedy, as I wore them alllll the time, even in the rain. I think I’d like to replace them with this pair of rounded frames, but am struggling to decide between pastel pink or the more neutral tortoiseshell. Let me know your thoughts!

Accessories to Murder #34 | She and Hem | Thunder Egg Topshop and More!
Da Bomb Bag | £25 | Skinnydip via Thunder
Accessories to Murder #34 | She and Hem | Thunder Egg Topshop and More!
UFO Cross Body Bag | £28 | Skinnydip via Thunder Egg

The top bag from Skinnydip London is da bomb, and the flying saucer UFO bag is out of this world! Both bags have adjustable straps or can be worn as clutches, bonus! Skinnydip are my go to place for novelty bags, as they are always so fun without any astronomical prices. Head over to Thunder Egg and make some space for them in your collection.

Accessories to Murder #34 | She and Hem | Thunder Egg Topshop and More!
Leather Sequin Boxy Bag | £45 | Topshop

Now this is a bit of alright. A cute boxy cross body bag, with lots of easy on the eye floral embellishments. I think that it will go with almost anything, is spacious and sturdy enough for general use and pretty enough to take from day to night. Jolly good, keep it up Topshop!

Accessories to Murder #34 | She and Hem | Thunder Egg Topshop and More!
Yellow Faux Leather Jacket | £39.99 | Zara

This striking jacket has been around for a while, but it’s just too perfect not to feature. If yellow is not your thing, it also comes in a slightly more subtle light blue. Both are delightful. I’ve seen it on a couple of bloggers recently and it looks really great on. I’m very tempted indeed!

Until next week, keep accessorising!

Accessories to Murder #20

Hello and welcome to the 20th Accessories to Murder! 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. Warning: this one includes an amazing Zara bargain. Happy shopping!

Accessories to Murder #20 | She and Hem | Gin Bag
Glitter Gin Bottle Clutch Handbag | £100 | Luna on the Moon

Would you just look at this Gin Clutch! It really makes me grin, because it’s just all kinds of win. It’s not made out of tin, so don’t throw it in the bin. So, tell your next of kin that it’s got me in a spin. I knew my English degree would come in handy sooner or later… Luna on the Moon has so many incredible bags, and you can find them all over on Etsy.

Accessories to Murder #20 | She and Hem | Red Bag Zara
Red Tote | Was £22.99 Now £9.99 | Zara

This is not a red herring. Oh no, it’s not all novelty prints and quirky patterns here at She and Hem, as we are also pretty potty about a pop of bright colour! February is all about red, so thank you Zara for reducing this tote-ally great bag down to £9.99!

Accessories to Murder #20 | She and Hem | Hot Air Balloon Necklace
Hot Air Balloon Necklace | £18 | Joy

Living in Bristol, it’s difficult to get through the day without spotting at least one hot air balloon floating above the city’s colourful houses. This Hot Air Balloon Necklace from Joy would be perfect to wear to the next Bristol Balloon Fiesta, as we always like to dress appropriately (see here), with as many novelty hot air balloon items we can possibly find!

Accessories to Murder #20 | She and Hem | Joy Acorn Earrings
Acorn Earrings | £15 | Joy

Also over at Joy are these mega cute Acorn Earrings from Dublin based jewellers Artysmarty. Although Bristol doesn’t (yet) have an Acorn Festival, I think they are still an essential purchase. There is nothing corny about them, they’re just nuttily good!

Accessories to Murder #20 | She and Hem | H&M Glittery Trainers
Silver Glittery Trainers | H&M | £24.99

I’ve never been a big trainer fan, as I’ve always found them really hard to style successfully, especially with my beloved dresses. This all changed last year when a pair of sunshine yellow Superga’s came into my life. Since then I’ve jumped fully on board the trainer train, and my final destination are these incredible, sparkly H&M Silver Glittery Trainers.

Accessories to Murder #20 | She and Hem | Avocado Phone Case Skinnydip
Googly Avo iPhone Case | £15 | Skinnydip via Topshop

Let’s all avocuddle and admire the last item for a moment. It really calls out to me as I am always within arms reach of both my phone and a juicy avocado. This googly eyed Avocado Phone Case is yet another Skinnydip gem, currently in Topshop. Did I mention it has googly eyes? It has googly eyes. And I, for one, am completely goggle-eyed for this little gem.

Until next week, keep accessorizing!

Hello again and welcome to the 19th Accessories to Murder! Regular readers may have noticed that Accessories to Murder is now back on track, and you’ll have a lovely new post ready for you every Sunday. So pop it into your diary, or if you are just far too modern and fancy for a pen and paper, follow us on Bloglovin and never miss a post! So, 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.

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,
