Especially if they are designed by Ericson Beamon. I have a massive crush on his jewellery designs – always colourful, big and ready to make a statement. And I absolutely love his range for Urban Outfitters – especially the collars (no surprise there, I have been a massive collar fan since the beginning of the trend).
Those two beauties are not your usual peter pan sequin collars – they are edgy and will turn any outfit into a rocking ensemble. Wear with plain outfits to ensure the collars attract the most attention – black or white shirts will do the trick!
Both leather collars – Stone and Spike are available from http://www.urbanoutfitters.com for £175. Check out other items from the collaboration, especially the irresistible Stone Cuff, £88.

To tell you the truth me and sweaters do not usually get along. I have to be in a special mood to go anywhere near a chunky knit. That is stuck on a snowy mountain or in the middle of a forest, which, lets face it not my day to day environment.
And yet after I have seen those beauties above I suddenly came up with a million and one reasons to wear them and where to wear them to. Indeed Bitching & Junkfood Jumpers are not your usual jumpers – no grandma patters or yucky colours. Those jumpers are creative, fashionable and will make you stand out like a peacock in the barn. Which is obviously what you want to do when its grey and miserable outside. Thank you Bitching & Junkfood for not letting wintery blues hide your creativity!

…Check out handbags on Urban Outfitters website! It is easy to see some shape similarities with Mulberry range but the prices are definitely not the same! What I like the most – while Mulberry shapes have been an inspiration for some, you can see that the designs are done really well and they are not just copies – new exciting colours and fabrics make the bags stand out as well designed items in their own right.
1. Kimchi & Blue Two-Tone Lady Bag, £48 (in the style of Mulberry Push Lock)
2. Suede Double Buckle Satchel, £68 (shape resemblance with Mulberry Tillie)
3. Ostrich Lady Bag, £28 (similar to Mole Grey Ostrich Bayswater)
So whatever the budget – get yourself an iconic shaped handbag for this season!

I’ve got so much love for this cool twist to classic satchel from Urban Outfitters (Online exclusive – £48):
1. It is spacious – large enough for A4 notepad.
2. It is box shaped which is very trendy at the moment.
3. It is snakeskin which is the hottest pattern of the season.
4. It has a top handle and a strap that will fit on the shoulder leaving your hands free.
5. And it is red which means we can match it to our lipstick for some ‘notice-me-I-am-fabulous’ look.
I am sold. Seriously considering moving it from my wishlist to my wardrobe especially in preparation for US road trip. Will let you know if it makes the cut ( of course it will, thank God for next day delivery).
