Today's Tuesday 10 prompt was Favourite (Canadian spelling!) Accessories.  Fun and easy... except for the part where I have to chose between my shoes! Actually, once I got trying to decide it became quite difficult.  So, to take the pressure off here are a few of my favourite (not my absolute favourite necessarily as I love many things... I have a big capacity for loving stuff) accessories in no particular order.

Last year I decided I was a headband kind of a girl.  I have to be careful wearing headbands because I'm prone to headaches.  These are three of my favourites made by Patience of Band Geek.

This Swarovski piece is a souvenir from the year I lived in Austria.  I love it and it sparkles like crazy in the light.  I once had my bag searched at an airport because it showed up in the scan. It seems it resembles a throwing star??

I have several handbags that I love but this is my brand new one from the Rowena's fashion show.  The colour is fabulous and I get compliments on it all the time.

I am a pretty lucky girl with my shoe collection.  This is a sampling of some favourites. Michael Kors colour block heels, Rosegold nude cutouts (so high!), Nine West famous shoes that my Dad bought for me and the most comfortable, beautiful sandals in the world.

I don't wear this one very much as it's quite special.  My grandmother gave me this signet ring as a high school graduation present.  She had the initials changed from hers to mine.  The gold was from her grandmother's wedding ring.

I could have picked all sorts of pieces that I love.  I tend to have sentimental attachment to much of my jewellery (and even my shoes).  I considered my engagement and wedding rings but somehow they don't seem like accessories.  Accessories are something that you don't wear every day!

I'm linking up with Mom 2 Memphis and Ruby for Tuesday 10.  Go check out the other lovely accessories.

Love those nude shoes!! I have the same problem with headbands, and by the time I recognize the headache coming on, it's too late. :(

Oh man, shoes count as accessories? I guess I count them as clothing. My list would've been TOTALLY different, haha. I could do a whole list just on shoes.

That signet ring is amazing. :)
