September 22, 2010


Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘A’ is for ACCESSORIES – DESIGNER ACCESSORY TRENDS FOR FALL 2010!

Belts, it seems, are skinny, bags pared down, shoes have slightly lower heels (in line with the economy!) and yeti boots are, I read, essential! Do let me know which you like and may follow and those you can’t stand:

1. YSL - above (love the chain and gloves!)

2. Chloe - 70’s style camel shoulder bag (below)
3. Versace – so shiny and reminiscent of sweet wrappers?
4. Proenza Schouler – meant to be an alternative to the ‘It’ bag! What do you think?

5. YSL – do you like this horse hair down heel?
6. Stella McCartney – lower heels

7. Chanel – love these faux fur Yeti boots!

8. Alexander McQueen – boots to keep out all that winter snow!
Do tell me! And do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts @ Jenny Matlock!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers and also new followers who visited or commented this week! Have a great weekend and see you again for Six Word Saturday!

Hi Nora and Lola,

Yes love the chain and gloves and the Chanel boots - saw the runway show the other day.
They would be so warm and cozy.

Hope that your week is going well.

Perhaps the Chloe bag - but not another thing. I'm short and try to keep accessories to a minimum.

I can't believe it is called the lower heal. I don't think I could walk in it. The accessories are all wonderful.

Terra said...

I am so fashion backwards none of this would be found in my post though.

La said...

I love accessories. It's like the icing on the cake. Don't hate me, but I rarely follow trends.

Have a great week! La

Jo said...

omg, hate skinny belts, love the yeti boots and wishes i could have those Alexander McQueen boots and that Proenza Schouler bag ... love it!!!

Sue said...

I can definitely live without the horsehair heels.

I like the bags, though.

Dear Nora,

Back! I would go with the gloves, they must make a very feminine comeback. You forget cloches! My favourite 20s/30s hats are everywhere now. Crikey.

I had some boots made out of horse hair years ago - yay, I was briefly a trend setter

Your blog is my chance to stay abreast of current fashions - and then as ever wear what I always wear


Pearl Maple said...

What fun, I do like a bit of trend watching, though when I saw the yeti boots on the commuter train this afternoon, in shocking pink no less it made me wonder..... love the coach bag, was a proud owner of one in the 70s

Hello Nora and Lola :)

I LOVE these trends! I have my mom's skinny belt which was used when she was still studying, I've never worn it. And I adore these shoes though I am mostly on flats most of the time as I get tired, plus they aren't good for our feet.

Roasting marshmallows,

Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen are AWESOME!

Cheryl D. said...

I am the anti-trend setter! You will not catch be sporting any of those accessories, which is good because I don't have those kind of funds anyway! Fun post showing the trends though!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Oh dear, I really am fashion challenged. If I can't wear jeans and a t shirt, I don't go. I think I need a stylist or something?

Jenny said...

Love the versace bag.

Not so much the horse main shoes.

This was a very stylish post. I am always tortured by accessories so I just use the same purse all year round and forego the jewelry.

Thanks for a fun link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "A".


Dana @ Bungalow'56 said...

Purse yes, boots no!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Love the Chloe bag and the Stella McCartney shoes if only the heels weren't so high!!

Sorry, those fur boots aren't for me!!!

Love the A post!

♥ Kathy said...

I love #3 & #6! #5 & #7 are just odd to me lol

Sumi said...

I like 2 ,4 and 6.Do real normal people wear Yeti boots?For real?I think it's really over the top and I might giggle if I see somebody wearing that.Sorry if it offends somebody who actually owns it.That's just my opinion.
