Accessories Haul // Parfois, Bershka & Zara!


I've been doing a lot of shopping over the past few weeks! So, you know what that means... A haul post. Let's face it, who doesn't love a good haul? I've been buying everything from jellwery to scarfs, belts and bags.


 The first place I went to was Parfois, which by the way is my new favourite shop. I've ordered from them online a couple of times but I had never been into one of their shops before I visited it in Portugal. I was like a kid in a sweet shop when I saw all of the stunning bags and the beautiful jewellery sparkling in the light. For a while there was only one Parfois in Dublin airport and then last December they branched out to Jervis shopping centre and only a couple of weeks ago they opened up in Swords and Blanchardstown. I'm delighted to see them opening more stores because they have beautiful pieces that aren't over priced. I'm so fussy when it comes to bags, whenever I'm on the hunt for a new bag I always seem to visit loads of shops but can never find anything decent. Gone are the days of searching for hours on end, I can just pop into Parfois and I know that I'll come away with a bag that I'll probably end up falling in love with (It's happened before and I have no doubt it'll happen again and again!) I could spend a whole blog post declaring my love for Parfois but I'll move on to talking about what I bought ;-)

If you've been reading my blog for a while then you'll know that me and scarves are best friends ;-) Seriously, I can't resist scarves - They're my weakness! I noticed that I haven't been wearing as many scarves lately and that's down to the fact that most of my scarves are quite wintery. So when I saw how bright and summery this scarf was I just couldn't resist the urge to add it to my collection. And for only €9.99, I really couldn't have done any better!


The first jewellery item I picked up was a silver and pink statement necklace for only €9.99! I couldn't believe it when I saw the price tag, it looks way more expensive than a tenner in my opinion. Statement necklaces are my favourite type of necklaces to wear at the moment. They're such a simple way to make a very plain outfit come to life.  The next thing I picked up was this simple, silver bracelet for €6.99. I really like this bracelet because it actually FITS my wrist. I have a tiny wrist so I always find it impossible to get bracelets that don't fall off my arm. Another thing I love about it is, there's a magnet to open and close it so theres no faffing about with small clasps (the bane of my life!). And the last piece of jewellery I got from Parfois was this cute, little string bracelet. I actually had a very similar bracelet that I bought in a market in Nice but I lost it, so I was delighted to be able to get something so similar! I love the colours in it, it's a very summery bracelet.


Ahh my biggest purchase of this haul and probably my favourite is this peacock tote bag. This was €26.99 which isn't bad at all for a handbag, especially considering the size of it. It's huge, it's so big you could in fact fit the kitchen sink into it ;-) I absolutely love the design on it, it's so unusual and it goes with most of the things in my wardrobe.


When I saw this statement necklace in Zara reduced to €14.99 I couldn't just leave it on the shelf.  My collection of statement necklaces will be bursting if I keep this up. But I would have been silly not to nab this beauty up while it was a fraction of the original price. The next purchase I made was from good ol' Penneys/Primark! I got this beige belt with a silver buckle detail on the front for only €3! Oh how I do love the summer sales ;-) I originally got this to go with a kimono I picked up (Outfit post headed your way soon!) but I actually like it way more than I thought and I've been planning lots of other outfits I could wear this with.


Aww last item :-( I hate coming to the end of a blog post but the fun has to end sometime, doesn't it? ;-) Anyway, the last thing I bought was this set of gold rings from Bershka. I love dainty gold rings but like bracelets I find it very hard to get some that fit my tiny little fingers. I tried Bershka on a whim and I was over the moon when they fit onto my fingers! I was even happier when I looked at the price tag and saw that they were only €4.99. It's safe to say that I'll definitely be returning to Bershka for future ring purchases!


What have you bought recently?


Love,
Cliona xx
