I have enjoyed having a running feature, because it is oh so lovely to have some structure in my life : )
... i feel like this is just a glorified way for me to document the huge amount of things i own and i know that if i give myself some time to think i can do something way more creative and interesting and valid.
I don't like to do things and not give it my all so I'm calling it quits and going out on some sort of high!
The final installment is purely on Autumn/Winter Accessories. With a bucket load of stores releasing their previews for A/W along with some of the actual collections too i feel like it's a good time to cover this. Also i am a massive fan of the colder months, i have no idea why but i have no qualms about screaming like a child when it snows and kicking up leaves in my red wellingtons just to see them whirl about in the wind.
I had a look at the Fall Trend Reports on style.com and selected some pictures from the trend they called Under Wraps. It basically showcases the looks/collections/designers which had lots of layering which is something i love. I feel like these pictures show awesome use of accessories and some seriously gorgeous pieces (lace up ankle books, socks, legwarmers, belts, etc, etc.
I have quite a substantial collection of winter accessories, mostly hats and socks (socks not pictured here because, well to be honest it would take me hours to do it!)
I love a good hat. It's cold, you chuck it on, no effort, no 45 minutes doing your hair, just BAM. HAT. DONE. OUT THE DOOR.
Once again, due to adverse weather conditions, i had to use flash.

I realise 2 out of the 3 pictures in the second set are silly, i just felt like being a kid. Basically the purple hat got mauled by my cat when he was a baby and so I'm mourning the loss of the pompom, and the Russian hat is hard to be serious in, it really is.

I'm pretty good for winter accessories as you can see but i know as soon as Accessorize get their collection in I'll buy something. The stuff in there is lovely so it's inevitable.
The only thing i could think of that i know i want is one of these:
In Black please Giles Deacon!
Does anyone have a winter staple that they couldn't live without? Or a favourite shop for buying this kind of thing in?
So that's the end of Accessories Sunday. It has been fun, and a definite learning experience for me.
