Shiny, shiny

Blame it on the time of the year but my mind is now firmly on everything shiny, especially accessories. So, I've been scouring the net, looking for shiny stuff to put together in a virtual scrapbook.

Because of the glut of sequinaphernalia that has currently taken over the high street (culminating in horrors like this) I'm sort of over sequins, but I could be persuaded to get one of these.dressed and pressed, sequin Coloured sequin clutch, £45, Oasis

I love the large, shiny, shouty jewellery so imagine my unmitigated joy when I came across Bea Valdes' site. And who could resist this crystal heart clutch.

I'm loving the edgy trend, all those studs, buckles, zips, and high-shine leather are making me come over all tough chick. Pass me a wifebeater, steel capped boots and a grenade. URGH!

This trend has got me going a little schizo. One part of me is screaming: NO! This is sooo wrong. The other part is going: Hey it's Christmas, live a little, have a laugh, have a beer. Whichever part of me you agree with, these will cause you pleasure or pain, but tis the season. The wreath? It lights up. Gah!
