The city of love and style. I had forgotten how easy it is to pop over to this beautiful place. Just a short train journey and you are slap bang in the centre. It was only a brief stay, but enough time to remind myself how wonderfully stylish the Parisians are. Effortless elegance would be a good way to describe them. Wandering around the back streets, I found it hard to keep my purse firmly in my bag as we came across the most gorgeous boutiques filled with unique pieces that would look divine in my wardrobe (just saying).
Definitely a place I will be visiting over and over again.

Well it's finally 2016 !! Time to shake off those January blues and kick start the positivity . I find the Winter months hard (especially the short days) but the things that keep me going are the goregous accessories that we can use to keep warm but that can also turn an outfit into a piece of stylish wonder !!! My alpaca scarves have been very popular for exactly that reason.
Many of my friends are heading off to the slopes over the next few weeks. What a perfect opportunity to show off your style while sipping on a gluhwein.
Whatever you're up to this winter, have fun, stay safe and look gorgeous xxxx
Exciting few weeks!! November 4, 2015 16:39
Well it's been a busy October! I am on a steep learning curve, but enjoying every minute of it.
Thank you, to those of you that have already ordered from the website. I hope you love your items and don't forget to let 'The Other Half' know if you have seen anything for your Christmas list.
In the last few weeks I have been lucky enough to attend two incredible exhibitions. The first was Louis Vuitton Series 3, where we were able to witness Parisian craftsmen/women creating a trunk bag. It really makes you appreciate the workmanship that goes into making each item (apparently 30 hours worth!) and made me fall in love with them even more.
In the summer I visited the Owen Barry workshop in Somerset and saw large sheets of quality leather being individually hand cut and then passed to a specially trained craftsman who worked her magic and transformed it into a beautiful, high quality bag that is now available on my site. It is a lovely feeling knowing where and how your bag has been made and the personal touch that goes into each and every one.
The second exhibition was 'Mademoiselle Prive', which takes you through the journey of the origins of Chanel's creations, capturing the charismatic personality and irreverent spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel.
We are in Business! October 6, 2015 12:42 2 Comments
Finally, after nine months, we are in business. Funny how it’s taken exactly the same amount of time as it would to have a baby, because in a way this new venture is like our new baby!
From that very first rumble of excitement when the idea of starting an accessories business wouldn’t allow us to think of anything else, travelling the country to source the finest accessories from jewellery to handbags, making sure the photography was up to scratch and implementing our website, deciding upon a logo stylish enough – yet friendly enough – to match the feel of BareWithAccessories, the day has finally come to launch!
So, grab yourself a cup of coffee (or a glass of fizzy) and have a scroll through our beautiful offerings. We hope you love our products as much as we do and we would really appreciate your feedback.
