I believe that two people can walk into a room dressed in the same clothing, but what may separate them with regards to their style, lies in the details. And the details are in the accessory. With accesories one can become really creative and they can allow their style and personality to show through.

As you've noticed I've been going gaga over the past few weeks with my accessory buying and every time I come across a new piece that I feel speaks to me, or a new accessory store, I get very excited!

I'd like to share with you a new favourite of mine... Boticca.
It is just pure brilliance.

It's a marketplace of unique accessories, made by emerging fashion designers from all over the world.
Every piece has a story, and every story is told by it's designer. 

While browsing excitedly through their website I came across some amazing pieces, and I fell in love with this intriguing looking clutch (The V Clutch in Flame), designed by Dareen Hakim from New York. Originally from Beirut, Lebanon she "grew up surrounded by a vibrant culture filled with the richness of history and the beauty of modernity. Her inspirations reflect these intriguing contrasts and dimensions, bringing together the chic elegance of today with the flavors of the ancient, the rustic and the authentic." I love her work.

Here are a few more of her elegant designs.

 Here's another piece I really love, the Feather Bracelet designed by Leila Kashanipour from London. You know me, I'm one for the simple, yet statement piece, and this one really is the definition of that. Gorgeous.
(Daddy if you're reading this, you know how much I love you right? *Sings* This Christmas... ;))
Here are some more of her designs, Love.


I'd say to pop on over to Boticca and have a browse through the amazingness on there, you're bound to find something that speaks to you!

Oh, and for those looking for gifts, there is a Personal Gift Guide section on the site where you can find ideas of what to get for that special someone! :)

Dareen Hakim's designs are amazing! I love the clutches. They look like a more interesting version of the Marc by Marc Jacobs one. I might have to pop the beige one on my Christmas wish list.

Those pieces are amazing. I totally agree that the feather bracelet is amazing, a very unique piece. The only con is that these one of a kind pieces are a bit pricey...x
