French Connection Accessories

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

French Connection has always been a store for gorgeous garments but is not as famous for its range of accessories, which is ever expanding and stylish. I was pleasantly surprised with their selection of vintage style brass jewellery.

FCUK Accessories

This Brass Bow Necklace is vintage looking, priced at £25 and would be a compliment to a plain outfit for an evening on the town, matched with this Grecian metal, brass coloured cuff priced at £12. Alternatively maybe you’d prefer just one accessory to glitz up an outfit, so this Knotted Bracelet would be prefect, costing £20.

The whole range can be found and purchased on line at www.fcukbuymail.com alternatively pop in to your nearest store that stocks jewellery.

Miu Miu Leather RedI’ve got a thing for leather gloves this year, I just think they’re so classy and look fab in all the bold colours that are around this season!

If this is just out of your price range why not head down to Ted Baker and snap up this similar pair of gloves for just £35! Bargain!

Crystal Ruffle Layer DressI adore the mid season sales that take place around this time of year, especially when I see garments that I think are nice but a little pricey marked down by 20% or more. ASOS just so happens to be one of those websites I regularly browse for a new outfit; dress to be specific and I really like the brand Heaven & Earth.
