1. Thin bronze leather belt

2. Large chunky wooden beads

3. Huge black fabric brooch with bits all over it. Sounds vile but jazzes up anything.

Oh, and cocktail rings.

Et vous?

See, I don't really do handbags. I'm more a pin it on your top or sling it round your neck kind of girl.

Much rolling of eyes but for me it's a couple of ... breastfeeding necklaces. They are pretty, match lots of thing, and I can wear them with DCs around.

maidamess Wed 30-Jul-08 20:52:11

breastfeeding necklaces? Heh?

cthea Wed 30-Jul-08 20:56:25

Wanky sounding, I know, I know here but nobody else need know what you're wearing. Just a piece of cheerful child-proof plastic.

mine is a black scarf with a skull motif all over it - adds a touch of rock to my skinny jeans, tailored jacket and stripey tee combo.

My huge black obsidian ring that I bought in Chile many moons ago

My slouchy designer leather handbag

my Tiffany diamond studs (pressie from dh)

my charm bracelet that used to be my mum's _ I loved it when I was a kid and she gave it to me on my dd's first b'day

are we talking shoes too?

maidamess Wed 30-Jul-08 21:12:08

Star, yes of course shoes. Always shoes.

And cthea, me likey! Especially the greeny ones. Do you have to be breastfeeding to wear one? grin

Yes, I'm sure the necklace police will be rummaging through your cleavage They are nice and well priced, considering you wear them and they last. They come in other materials too (not just plastic) and they look even better.

Stargazing Wed 30-Jul-08 21:21:01

okay then

my 5-inch black satin Louboutins
my white havaianas
my fur-lined brown leather knee-high boots

Bought a pair of Jimmy Choos today, too early to tell if they will be a fave, but I suspect they will since they make my legs look like Naomi Campbell's (well, almost)

JackieNo Wed 30-Jul-08 21:23:26

Currently my long silver(ish) star/sun pendant on a long black cord (£2.99 from the Oxfam shopgrin)
My Georg Jensen 'Magic' ring (present from DH)
For winter, my Duo boots (only ones I can get to fit over my mahoosive calves). I'm looking forward to being able to wear boots again.
My brown suede kitten heeled ballet-style shoes (£5 bargain).

I'm not good with handbags. For me, a handbag is for life, not just for an outfit. If I try to use more than one at any given time, I'm likely to not have the bits I want, when I need them. So I stick with one handbag till I get really fed up with it/it falls apart. So shoot megrin. I know Cod willwink.

Dangly earrings made by someone in the village.

I'm with you Califrau - feel really bad that I kicked up a big stink about wanting a pair of square blue stone studs to match engagement ring and I have worn them, what, twice? blush as I never take the diamonds out. Poor dh.
