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 | 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.


All Hail the Sale


We are only two days in to January and I am already struggling to contain my willpower when it comes to the sales. After indulging so much over Christmas, it always seems crazy to splurge on new things in the New Year but with so many massive discounts around it can be very hard to resist. I’ve rounded up my current wish-list and will be keeping a beady eye out for further reductions. Those of you who follow us on Instagram will know that I have already caved and bought the Topshop shoes! So shiny.
