10 Cute Christmas accessories to get you in the festive mood

Every year our family gets dressed up for Christmas lunch and while I normally just wear a festive dress, sometimes I like to add some cute Christmas accessories to my outfit. Christmas earrings, or maybe a necklace.

Here is my top ten cute Christmas Accessories (some of which, I have already purchased myself) to wear on Christmas day, or any Christmas party/ work end-of-year break up party.


Christmas Accessories

1. Sterling silver CZ Reindeer pendant from Prouds $29 (Original RRP$49.90)- I saw this reindeer pendant in the display at my local Prouds a couple of weeks ago, but totally forgot to go back and get it, so I picked it up in the city last week. I think it’s really cute and different to any other reindeer jewellery I’ve seen.

2.Tiffany & Co. Sterling silver Charm and chain $205- Charm $70- Chain (splurge)- Even though it doesn’t snow in Australia for Christmas, I have always thought snowflakes are pretty at Christmas time. It is also a reminder that on the other side of the world, it’s cold in December.

3. Silver Candy Cane Novelty studs on gift card from Lovisa $7.99- I love candy canes and these studs from Lovisa are so cute! They are Christmas-y without looking tacky. I think it’s a great idea that they are on a gift tag, you could add it to the outside of a wrapped gift.

4. Penguin Earrings from Diva $6.99- Normally ‘novelty’ type Christmas earrings can be a bit on the tacky side, but I think these ones are cute. Just simple penguins wearing Santa hats (with glitter).

5. 9ct Gold Silver Filled Heart Charm bracelet from Bevilles $69.99- Christmas jewellery doesn’t always have to be Christmas themed. I love this charm bracelet because you could add other charms to it if you wanted to and it’s dainty.

Other Christmas Accessories

Christmas accessories

1. Metal Reindeer headband from Diva, $9.99- This was another item that I picked up last week. If the metal cat ear (headband) trend is anything to go by, these headbands will be just as popular! What I love about them is that they are way more subtle than wearing a pair of felt reindeer antlers/headband.

2. New Look Christmas pudding Coin purse from ASOS, Now $5.55 (was $7.38)- I love novelty items and this pudding coin purse is so cute…and also handy when you’re out Christmas shopping. Sometimes when you have budgets for gifts, you can end up with a lot of loose change!

3. Christmas illustration canvas shopper tote, Exclusive to Myer, $29.95- I rember seeing these totes at Myer last year. They would be a beautiful gift for someone, or something to take shopping when you have a few last minute items to buy (there’s always something you need on Christmas Eve).

4. Christmas Tree Phone topper from Diva, $6.99- This cute little tree fits into any regular headphone jack and serves two purposes, to keep dust out of the jack and to add some Christmas bling to your phone.

5. OPI Nail polish in ‘All I want for Christmas (is OPI) from Myer, $19.95- While nail polish comes under ‘cosmetics’, I have always seen it as an accessory too. Whatever shade we choose to paint our nails, is an ‘accessory’ to our outfits. Red is always great for Christmas and the shade name for this one is very fitting.

Do you dress up on Christmas day? or is it a casual affair?


Fashion wishlist August 2013

Over the last couple of weeks I have been seeing beautiful new clothing pieces that I would love or dream to own. So I thought that it was time that I created a Fashion Wishlist!
(It may include a few fashion accessories too)

Fashion wishlist

1. Poppy bardot neckline skater dress, Forever New- The moment I saw this dress online, I just new I had to have it. It reminds me so much of Audrey Hepburn and I adore the style. The perfect thing about it, is that even though it’s short sleeved, I could team it with some opaque tights for winter!(at the time of publishing this post, I now own this dress!)

fashion wishlist

2.Big Garland ‘Blush’, Sportsgirl- I thought that I would never be into the flower garland (I have one with daisies that I still haven’t worn!), but I saw these in store and they look gorgeous! I definitely think I will be getting one for spring.

fashion wishlist

3.Lavinia skirt, Review (no longer available) -Review is one of my favourite brands, their designs are always so feminine and pretty. I love that (some) of their skirts are very 50s inspired and this skirt is no exception! A large flower print always ‘pops’ against black.

fashion wishlist4. Studded bow belt, Miss Shop Myer-I think that bows make everything cute, this belt would be great with jeans or with a dress even! I was going to say that the studs keep it from being too girly…but who am I kidding? It is a cute, girly belt! 😉

fashion wishlist

5. Chiya Ladylike bag, Forever new- I love this bag! Normally I go for dark coloured bags (like black, burgundy etc.), but I should definitely be looking for a light shade to add to my collection. My favourite part of this bag is the cute little change purse, that is chained to the bag!

Until next time
