Whenever I am out and about shopping (nearly every weekend) I see so many amazing accessories and bags that I love that I must show you but they are so regularly not available online. This weekend I decided to be one step ahead and take photos for you! Unfortunately the images were taken on my camera phone so very grainy for which I apologise.

There were lots of party accessories starting to appear in stores including oversized jewellery and patent detailing. I especially liked the thin double patent head bands which are available in Topshop and Dorothy Perkins.

I saw this large leather tote (top right) in River Island for £69.99. It’s beautiful soft leather with a long shoulder strap. Very simple design means it will see you through many seasons, probably big enough for a laptop. The bling knotted bracelet (so blurry, sorry!) is by Freedom at Topshop and would go with almost anything. I spotted the black patent shopper at the bottom when my friend The Borst waltzed in to my house with it. It is the Peacocks tote and cost just £5 (reduced from £10 in sale)! It’s a great alternative to the YSL downtown tote.
