Flats: Banana Republic, Scarf: c/o Bootlegger,  Necklace: Claudia Accessories, Clutch: c/o Plum, Broach: vintage

Accessories are meant to give a pop to your outfit.  For me this doesn’t always mean colour.  Neutral accessories worn with a neutral look can still be interesting as long as you add texture and print.  Pieces like this winter floral scarf or sequin bag will add instant personality.  A braided metallic necklace, nude patent flat, or vintage seed pearl broach are simple on their own, but have impact when mixed together.

Little details like adding a vintage broach to a modern clutch is a simple way to personalize your style.


The holiday season is the perfect time of year to bring out your sparkly clutches.  Weather it’s a gold sequin stunner or a vintage inspired baguette, a bit of shine can make even the simplest dress the star of the party.   Today I was digging through my own collection to see what I’ve got to work with for my upcoming holiday soirees.   Here’s my mix…

If sparkle and shine are not really your thing, try something a little different.

Why not accessorize your accessories?  I took this brown leather vintage clutch ( c/o Shoppalu)  and attached a pretty little vintage broach to add some shine and whimsy.   Now I have a fabulous one-of-a-kind bag that will work with anything from jeans and stilettos to sequins and tulle.

I’ve been noticing some trends form…in my closet!  I clearly have some obsessions.  One of the things I’m loving now are bangles.  I stack em on.  I have a real variety.  Some are from H&M and Forever 21 and then others are vintage that I got from my grandmother, and I recently bought a new mesh one by local Vancouver label Harriet Grey .  They all work well together.

I’m loving jeweled flats.  I found a great pair by Sam Edelman…the love affair continues.

Recently my grandmother gave me some beautiful vintage beauty accessories of hers from the 50′s.  My little collection consists of a compact with puff, jeweled perfume bottle, gold zippo lighter case, and a hard case evening bag.  I have these vintage beauties displayed on my vanity in my walk in closet.

I also have a thing for owls.   I’ve got an owl tee and a couple of necklace that are faves of mine to wear.  My parents just gave me a little stuffed owl that they got at the Burrowing Owl winery.
