Scarf-A-Thon Post 4!

Another twelve scarves worn! Getting down to the last few. Some have already been put in the donation pile. I can’t believe I still have some favourites left to wear. Check out the latest wearings:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lovely silk number was a gift from my aunty. So many colours, it makes it difficut to match with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have lots of butterfly scarves. I actually lost my favourite one, another blue one the night we got engaged. I think it must have fallen out of the car out of my lap when we went for dinner. RIP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this scarf in the Dingle peninsula in Ireland in 2007. Love the velvet and sequins running through it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A simple coral coloured one, gets a lot of wear with patterned tops.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hedgehogs number 2!  A Christmas gift from a colleague.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely tropical bird pattern. I think this was also a gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classic black, white and grey. Oh and more butterflies. Always butterflies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pink and patterned, lovely with a white top and grey jeans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flamingoes! What’s not to love? Was this a gift? I think so…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Musical notes, another Christmas gift, this time from my boss.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This stole is so old, I’ve had it for about 20 years. Can be worn around the waist too. Glitzy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this as a gift for someone, then went back and bought it for me too! Love the colours.

 

So that’s 48 scarves in total! I’m going to get to 60, another 12 to go…

Favourite Accessory this Week … Rainbow set

Lately I have been so overwhelmed with the amount of jewellery I own that I can’t even choose what to wear. Either that or I feel I have nothing in the right colour scheme, which clearly is a crazy thought when you have over 200 pairs of earrings!

So this multicoloured set is perfect as it goes with so many items of clothing. I didn’t even notice at the time that the necklace and ring have completely different colours!

The large pink section on the ring is the only part that sort of is the same as the necklace. I bought these items at Old Navy, Seattle on one of my many many shopping sprees in the US!

 

Accessory of the Week: Very very long scarf

I got this scarf on special at Cotton On last winter as part of a 3 for $10 deal. Bargain! The 3 scarves I bought for $10 are among my favourites, and I have a lot of scarves!

It’s super long, you can wrap it around 4 times. Very snug, and great colour combo, goes with everything!

More Accessories – Beyond the 30

So my 30 Days of Accessories Challenge is over, but I am still challenging myself to wear different jewellery, scarves and shoes. Here are some of the items I have worn over the last few days:

And since technically the shopping ban ended at day 30,  here are some recent purchases!

Wanted: Navy or blue shoes – to go with those outfits that have no black so black shoes are out.

Found: $12 (yes twelve dollars!) cute flats at K Mart

Along with never-knew-I-needed-them-but-know-I-can’t-live-without-them $8 pink snake skin flats and Missoni inspired print flats for $19.

 

Wanted: Ogling these purple triangular earrings at Lovisa for weeks. Can’t justify spendage (plus I was on a ban!)

Found: On Sale!  Two items for $10!

And of course I bought more, it was 2 for 10 after all!

  

Wanted: Subtle, orange accessories to go with my rockin’ orange heels

Found: Awesome bangle stack – also part of the 2 for 10 deal!

Ahh shops… it’s good to be back 🙂

 

The Final Hurdle… Days 25-30

Well out here in Beavercity the Accessories Olympics are drawing to a close. 30 days of wearing different accessories has covered all medals: gold, silver, bronze – in the style of my jewellery of course!

I did cheat a couple of times (Yes the IOC are onto me) and wore the same shoes twice, but trying to do a shoe related challenge when you have an ankle injury and cannot wear most of your favourite heels requires a little bending of the rules.

I think I will keep going past the 30 day mark with wearing different accessories, but will relax on the shoe wearing. I’m sure I still have over 140 pairs of earrings that didn’t get worn!

But to finish off,  here are some pictures of what has been worn in the last 5 days.

And I’m off to the shops!

Flailing. And Failing!

I need to apologise. Another week past, and no outfit polyvore designs or accessories updates. Losing my head a bit and therefore my ability to accessorise suffers.

Evidence of Poor Accessory-itis

1) I wore the nude flats again. Rule breaker!

2) I picked a ring to wear to match my nails. Half way to work decided it didn’t match well enough so left it in the car.

3) Wore sneakers for 2 days… with NO ACCESSORIES. I know, I can’t bring myself to look at myself either.

4) BROKE my everyday watch. And it was the only thing I wore on the aforementioned no accessories days. Clearly my punishment.

5) Bought leggings, a top and underwear in protest for not being able to buy shoes and accessories. Fail I know.

Promise to lift my A Game!  (As in Accessories Game of course!)

Some things I did wear this week are…
