THE DESIGNER STEAL V

When I stumble across gorgeous items such as today’s Designer Steal, I almost cry. Firstly it’s that awkward time of the month – nearly (but not quite) pay day – Secondly I’m trying to save to find a Maison for my Margiela & thirdly I don’t really need it, nor do I feel the need to own an iPad, but I just REALLY need it…

Here’s today’s beautifully made accessory from foraging The Unconventional website.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…IS…A HERMÈS COLLIER DE CHIEN BRACELET

*Cue emotional blubbering & comfort eating*

Here’s an item of arm candy I’ve wanted for years, but sadly I was forced to choose between this and not eating for a whole month (and we all know how much I like my food!).

The renowned 8 stud leather and palladium/gold plated Hermès Collier De Chien bracelet has been worn by fashion’s elite all over the world, and is, in my opinion at least, the PERFECT accessory to add that goth-glam, high end edge to absolutely ANY look, be it with dressed down ripped jeans and hi-tops to a more formal evening gown or smart casual blazer and tee combo.

Sadly I think the era of the Collier De Chien bracelet has come to an end as I am unable to locate any online, which means it will truly be a Christmas miracle if one turns up under my tree this year.

The alternative option is to break into my BFFs chelsea apartment, threaten her with a banana, and as she moves into the corner of the room with her hands in the air, steal the collection she has…along with a few Balmain bits…

THE “TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL” RUCKSACK BY MARC JACOBS

The last time I wore a rucksack was during my transition from secondary school to college. After that, the then popular trend of the messenger bag took over, followed more recently by the hold-all/tote phase…and I haven’t gone back since.

With its re-ammergence as a trendy accessory, I’ve failed re-ignight any spark I may have “carried” for the lowly rucksack, that is until I began seeing more luxe equivalent’s around, such as this beautiful Navy textured leather rucksack by Marc Jacobs on Yoox.com.

IS THIS THE MOST POINTLESS ACCESSORY EVER?

Somebody please find me the person who will spend £545 on a “newspaper holder” so I can point out the use of their hands… and proceed to slap some sense into them too.
