This is a self-indulgent blog for accessories aficionadas and beauty buffs just like me. I buy stuff, I try stuff. I have fashion hits and fashion misfits. Who doesn't? I make no claims of being a fashionista. I make one assertion: I am fyne and fabulous. That's it. That's me.

Prism Break: Polychromatic Accessories
Wear the rainbow! Prismatic jewellery is so beautiful to me. I love the way these chameleon-esque gems pick up the dominant colour in an outfit.
Chandelier Earrings: Panache
They are also the perfect splash of colour to enhance a sexy LBD. The light-reflective properties make such accessories easily wearable
with just about every colour you have in your closet.
One of my secret style fetishes are cufflinks. Since I was a child, I always thought my dad looked so daper when he dressed up in a three-piece suit and finished it off with cufflinks and matching tie pin. I think that at least one pair of cufflinks is a must-have in every woman's jewellery collection. I bought this pair of cufflinks (below) at a thrift shop on Queen St. W a few years back. The salesperson claimed they were from the "Austin Powers" era. (A really good sales pitch perhaps?)
I think they would have a nice "peak-a-boo" effect on this soft yellow suit; a subtle accent on the sleeve of the blouse. Shagadelic!
