Recent Buys - Gold Edition

It's weird when you unintentionally buy items that have a theme isn't it? Without realising, I can home the other day with a range of gold accessories. Deep down, I've always loved gold, but I'm traditionally a 'silver girl' or on the odd occasion, a 'white gold girl'. Strange. Anyway, here's what I picked up.

Bow clutch - New Look / Peace ring - Dorothy Perkins / Spike earrings - H&M / Double choker - Dorothy Perkins / Spiked hair cuff - H&M

Bow clutch - I knew I had to have this when I saw it. I've been looking for a unique clutch for nights out for ages. This is such a useful bag, as well as a flip opening, it also has a zip to stop things falling out. (Which always seems to happen to me). It was also in the sale, £4 down from £10! Bargain.

Peace ring - The peace symbol is everywhere at the moment & I have to say I'm lovin' it.

Spike earrings - These were only £1.99 can you believe! I love pairing them with the gold choker & a high-buttoned shirt.

Double-ringed choker - Down to £1 from £7.50, I couldn't resist this. Simple chokers seem to be making the rounds on youtube at the moment & while I do like my jewellery to stand out, this was just too elegant to not add to my collection.

Spiked hair cuff - Again, I've seen a couple of these on youtube, but not the spiked ones. If I tie my hair up, it's either in a messy bun or a backcombed high pony. This is perfect to add to the 'messy' bad hair day look.


  1. Love the spiked earrings, they were a steal at £1.99! I really want to try a hair cuff too, they could add a bit of edge to a simple ponytail :)
