“I've always admitted that I'm ruled by my passions. “ – Elizabeth Taylor
Liz said it best, but the difference between her and me is that the many love affairs of my life have been with shoes, accessories and handbags. With each coming season, I become filled with deep excitement to see what they’ll come up with next in the wonderful world of fashion.
An event of any kind is the perfect reason to buy a new accessory – it’s totally justifiable when you need a necklace to go with that dress, or an evening bag to match your (new) pair of pumps. But when it comes to a wedding, and you’re the guest of honour, no excuses are needed.
You’ve got the dress, the jewels, the fancy footwear, now it’s time for the perfect clutch. With a vast selection of pretty purses and glittery minaudieres on the market, there are options for all tastes at every budget.
