Accessory Love

I’m obsessing over accessories lately -indeed, I’ve been spending on them lately more than clothes (alas, can’t say the same for shoes as I bought more than four pairs in the last month).
Got a jewelry box and earring holder from Simple Joys, and used a shopping bag from Plains and Prints as necklace container. The shopping bag actually looks like a hat box – big, round and six-inches deep.
box containing watches and my cameo necklaces; the blue box contains the more expensive items (meaning real jewelry)
hat box contains my necklaces and bracelets
My favorite neclaces of the moment, starting from top, middle: gold butterly necklace, Accessorize; flower bib necklace, from Pearl Market at Market Market; cameos, bought online from Multiply; antique watch necklace; leaf necklace, bought from Indonesia; etched gold fish necklace, bought from the souvenir shop at Renaissance Hotel in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam; stainless steel heart pendant, My DIamond; silver cross, Silverworks.
Tons of earrings. It’s quite obvious I love dangling ones. haha.

Anyway, I intend to add some more. On top of my list is to get my nth pair of hoop earrings. I don’t know what it is with me but I keep losing one everytime I wear them. I must have lost more than five – problem is, I throw the other piece so I end up buying a new pair all the time.
I love accessories coz they can dress up your outfit. A plain white tee and jeans combo becomes glam when you accessorize correctly. And it’s much easier to hoard than real jewelry – costume jewelry are much cheaper and they come in all designs, you just have to know where to look for them. I recommend the online shops and bazaars. Take this serpent arm bracelet – got this one from Multiply:
And of course, buy some when you travel  – most of these are unique and you’re not likely to find them here in Manila. Plus, they serve as great mementos of your travel. 😛
Til my next inventory count (accounting jargon dears)!

I am so loving these tribal-inspired sandals from Charles and Keith. Reminds me of the LV sandals from last year. Loving my pink nails too (pedi from California Nails and Day Spa). Just ignoremy ugly fee – I wasn’t genetically blessed in that department and I know my feet are ginormous and hideous. I had to ask Charles and Keith to check which branch carries this pair in my size and buy it from there. Haha.
