SS13 Trend: Perspex

Evening everyone,

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, from what i saw on twitter (and the boyfriend) there was plenty of sun and heat about. Alas none of that happened in wet and grey south wales. I'm hoping london has some good weather this week so i can enjoy my sunglasses and my spring clothes!!!!!!!

I, and the rest of the fashion world, are madly obsessed with Perspex right now. It is a huge trend this season and the fashion house and the high street have welcomed it with open arms. I have always had a soft spot for perspex (and holographic but thats for another blog post ;) ) so it thrills me to see bloggers, street style and high street embracing it in crazy ways.

My love turned into a massive hunt for the perfect bag and shoes  (I have always wanted the Christian Louboutin perspex heel but sadly i am not a heels person).  Enter the Corbeau flats:

They're also available in gold snake toe/ blue back and all black....

Soon after finding the perfect perspex shoe, I quickly found my perfect perspex bag (don't you just love when that happens). Of course i would of died for the Valentino Rockstud tote....but sadly i didn't have £1550 spare. 

So welcome my new baby the  Marc by Marc Jacobs perspex satchel: 

(Sorry about the lighting guys!)

It also comes in white and black and a smaller version too! 

As you can see from the photo this bag is perfect as the back is all leather and the front is perspex so nice to hide the not so pretty handbag bits at the back! It also doubles as a cute clutch too.  When i used it i had lots of nice compliments and some very shocked reactions that it was MBMJ. 

Here are some other Perspex pieces that i absolutely love and have inspired me....

Thanks for reading guys!

lots of love
