I’m all for accessorising! Outfits are a little more fun when you add a little necklace, brooch, bracelet or if you are really brave, all of the above to dress it up a little more.
So basically, that’s what I did last week – piling on the accessories to dress up the outfits.
Monday: A simple black dress with my fave accessory-of-the-moment – spike necklace with white diamante.
Tuesday: A printed banana top with my Marni for H&M Peter Pan sequined collar.
Wednesday: Keeping it simple my Matthew Willamson for H&M dress with an intricate and dressy Phoenix sewing.
Thursday: My 99baht ‘Be Spectacled’ printed top from Bangkok dressed with my neon pop rhinestone necklace and layered with another gold spike necklace with black diamante.
Friday: Going electric with this cobalt blue top and candied spike necklaces in turquoise, pink and white colour combi.

Fresh picks from my little weekend get-away thrown in with a couple of old fave pieces. Here’s what I paired them with for a seemingly-short-but-felt-like-it-was-a-long week. Tuesday: Electric blue shirt dress with a turquoise blue necklace.
Wednesday: My dramatic Leopard rhinestone necklace with a leopard ‘preens’ top.
Thursday: Piling on the neon bling necklaces with a diamante spike necklace. But boy are these heavy! The shoulders felt a little tight after wearing them. Hmph..
Friday: One of my fave buys from the Bangkok trip, a short dress with floral and skull digital prints. Love the ‘now you see it, now you don’t’ type of effect. Didn’t want to take the attention away from the dress, so I simply piled on the armswag.
There you have it. Accessories do make all the difference and they appear to be all the rage this season. Don’t be afraid to clash colours or pile on as many as you want. You’ll definitely fit right in with these statement pieces.
Showcasing what I wore to work this week:Monday: A simple navy shift dress paired with my new neon rhinestone necklace purchase.
Tuesday: Felt like a jungle printed shirt-dress day
Wednesday: Theme for the week was Superheros. I was channeling Jean Grey (Phoenix) from the X-Men with this dress. It obviously did.not.work!
Thursday: A wallpaper printed dress put on with my ‘you guessed it!’ neon necklace and attended the Chloe F/W 2012 preview with friends.
Friday: Putting the FUN into Friday with this ensemble from Love Bonito.
Just wondering, is anyone out there enjoying my ‘What I wore to work’ outfit posts? Thinking if I should continue showcasing them.. gimme a shout-out and lemme know?
