Today I’m loving {Style}

Animal magic.

Championed by fashion and jewellery power houses over the last few years not to mention being a Victorian favourite, the animal accessory trend is still going strong. Just to clarify, I’m not talking miniature dogs in handbag here, I’m talking intricately detailed, jewel encrusted creatures. These are a few of my current favourites. Even Karl Lagerfeld (you might not have recognised him under the uncharacteristically bright clothing 😉 ) approves.

I couldn’t resist adding some classics from Maroquinaris Zoologicae by Billie Achilleos for Louis Vuitton from early this year. So cute!!
