My Favorite Accessories

I know I post on here quite often about taking advantage of handmade, vintage, re-purposed, etc, but do I practice what I preach? Yes, for the most part! I am more a "buy used" kind of girl simply because "vintage" tends to be out of my price range, but every once in a while I splurge.

Today I just wanted to share my own little adornments. These little things that contribute to my somewhat discombobulated style, which I'm still trying to establish. Below is my first baby bump pic and the dogs romping in the snow. (If you follow my Twitter feed, you may have already seen this pic.) And that's my favorite Winter hat, purchased at Edie's Hats when visiting Vancouver, Canada (my favorite city, even over Paris and London, but a close second to Florence.)
And this is my most favorite accessory! This is what the hubby got me for Hanukkah, per my request. Okay, I have to admit... One of the reasons I like it so much is because nobody else has it. I get asked about this purse a lot. In the grocery store, in the mall, at conferences, etc... And I love it. It's handmade in Japan by Tago Design and Crafts, a small shop run by this talented gal.

What is your favorite accessory? Is it a pair of shoes? An heirloom piece of jewelry? And if you're getting married, do you plan on incorporating it into your wedding? Leave a comment and consider posting it on your own blog with pictures!

That bag will stash all the baby booty you'll need to get through your day as a (most darling) mom!

I just found your blog, and it really appeals to me and I look forward to reading it, as I am planning my wedding for September and my main goal, something that I think about daily, is how to re-use everything that I purchase for the wedding, after the wedding! Including my wedding dress.

I do have a favorite pair of earrings that are bronze leaves, and I plan to wear them at my wedding, and for many years after!

@dognbird - thank you! The baby bump is getting bigger by the day! :)

@TheCluelessCrafter - I fear you are right. And I fear my most precious accessory will be covered in baby spit up before I know it. Oh well, it's all worth it. :)

@Rachel - So glad to have you stop by! Your bronze leaf earrings sound lovely! I do hope you'll post pictures one day on your blog. :)
