A BIT OF CHOO
I have a confession to make, and it involves this rather dazzling little Jimmy Choo number.
I'd taken on a losing battle of lust over sense after seeing it on Natalie of Canned Fashion and Alex of The Frugality in neon yellow and champagne respectively. When I spotted it in an online sale I knew it had to be. Few other items have brought such joy upon entering my wardrobe - she's just so darn cheerful. That mightn't be written on my face in the first photo - rest assured I was playing it cool.
I'd originally hoped to pair the clutch with this ensemble and my Marant sneakers (note how they sit sadly off to the side - please ignore the slippers, I'm suitably mortified they've made it in) but I have an inkling that Isabel probably didn't intend them for snow and so this weekend I ended up reaching for my trusty biker boots instead.
This didn't inhibit a little bit of prancing around in them before admitting defeat when faced with leaving the house.
All in all the Candy clutch is proving to be one of those lovely, unexpected purchases. Spur of the moment and a little bit mad, but thoroughly enjoyable. Although it is most often touted as an evening bag, I'll be using it mostly in the day time to offset an otherwise simple outfit. I'd be mad not to!
I'm wearing: Accessorize bobble hat, Topshop coat and Leigh jeans, Report Jude biker boots or Isabel Marant Bazil sneakers, Whistles Agatha cashmere jumper and silver Jimmy Choo Candy clutch.
