new in: accessories from betsey johnson + nina ricci

Accessories are always in style. I don't know quite what it is about accessories, but they always seem to make me smile. It amazes me how the right bracelet or set of earrings can transform a look. One moment you are sweet and simple and the next, edgy and over the top. Though I have been trying to be a little more selective about the accessories added into my collection (because quite frankly, my accessories collection is a little full)....there are a few new items that I have been enjoying lately.

Betsey Johnson Earrings 

Oh, how I love Betsey Johnson. Over the years, there have been many of her accessories in my life....and she has been featured on this blog several times. From pink pretzel earrings to a designer spotlight, Betsey is a huge inspiration to me. I love her bold sense of style. The drama, the whimsy, and the fun. All of those qualities perfectly describe the new earrings in my collection. They are adorable and shaped like little cameras. With a sparkly faux diamond in the centre, of course. Not only are these super cute but they speak to me on a deeper level. I am always the one who brings along a camera to a special event. I keep hundreds (probably thousands) of folders on my computer, filled with pictures and wonderful memories. Though many people prefer to use their cell phones to snap a quick picture here or there....cameras will always hold a special place in my heart. 

Nina Ricci Denim Backpack

Okay, I have a slight obsession with backpacks. They are so cute, practical, and take me back to 90s fashion in the best possible way. Though I own a few, this is one of my absolute favourites. I've already worn it out several times. Why?  It has everything I love. It's made of denim, has yellow neon stitching, yellow neon on the inside, and lots and lots of embroidered patches on the outside. As you can see, there are eyes, hearts, lips, and stars. It is so fun and certainly doesn't take itself too seriously. When it comes to accessories, that is important to me. I love items with personality! This denim backpack has that in spades. 

Accessories have a way of telling a story. They are able to express certain aspects of who we are and how we feel. Perhaps that is why I have been so drawn to pieces that are fun and whimsical. Lately, I have been focused on lightening up, being joyful, and sharing who I really am.
