EIGHT + FRASSY : ACCESSORIES PARTY

Photobucket
I wear vintage belt, Rayban sunglasses, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and Frassy Rags ring
I am always intrigued by the American magazine industry's fascination with fashion accessories. There are always whole departments in the masthead for accessories : Senior accessories editor, accessories market editor, EXECUTIVE accessories director, accessories assistant etc etc. In the UK magazines, accessories are covered under the umbrella of 'fashion' and that's that. (I work in press - hence why I have a lot of time to notice these things.) But imagine being an accessories editor, spending your whole life surrounded by small objects of adornment? - it couldn't be too bad, why, we've all seen those pictures of the Vogue shoe cupboard in New York. Audrey and I, well, we're pretty into accessories I'd say. Audrey is rarely seen without one of her gorgeous signature hats and sunglasses, I am usually sporting some sort of enormous waistbelt and a whole load of bangles (not in these shots though, interestingly.)

Very cool outfits from both of you!
I love accessories too, but I prefer no to overload it and carry just one or two at a time.

What a wonderful explosion of print and color between the two of you! I never used to wear big rings but I am getting so envious of all these lovely finger accessories.

You both look great and the photos are smashing!

Loving this post..I totally agree with you!

Too often accessories are seen a secondary to the outfit. But a cute belt or amazing jewels can make look.

I say let your clothes be the blank canvas for your accessories. Less is never more!

I adore this outfit - your skirt and leopard leotard combination is perfection <3

polka dot said...

That never occurred to me (about the American/British distinction with 'accessories editors'). I love these shots of you and Audrey, but especially.. I thought these were a new form of YSL rings. When I clicked on her site.. am I reading correctly? Is there not a zero or two missing? Do they really cost £10??? I am buying the turquoise one now. Enough chit chat, gotta go buy it. xx

polka dot said...

Damn. It's sold out. When you talk to her next, can you ask if I can get on a waiting list? I'd like the turquoise one, please, in a medium. Thank you!
