Thrift inspiration.......Doing it Commes des Garcon Style via Primark!

Hi everyone!! Well I'm still so much into accessories as you can see from my recent previous postings. In particular I am really loving bags and my favourite style of bag for summer is either a tote bag or a clutch.

When I saw the Commes des Garcon embossed black clutch I was immediately smitten- it ticks all the boxes for style, originality and versatility and coming in at just under three figures is not too badly priced either. It is currently available at My-wardrobe.com and also comes in a fluoro orange and pale blue too:

 Commes des Garcons flower embossed leather pouch, £97


So suitably inspired by this one I decided I did need an equivalent-but being a 'Thrifty Ms' I wanted something that ticked all the above boxes but came in at single rather than double digits, pricewise.
I found this black skull embossed clutch which has the added bonus of a wrist strap and silver charms:





It's another find from Primark and came in at budget for just £6. I've used it solidly for two weeks now, so cost per wear is just under 50p per day, not bad, huh!!


For a low cost item I've received lots of compliments on it and it goes amazingly well with a different variety of outfits, whether it's smart, casual, jeans, leather or dresses:



I liked it so much I popped back into Primark last week and got a grey suedette one with a diamante skull on the front. I don't have a grey bag so this again will be another worthwhile buy to see me through the summer whilst alternating with the black one!

What has been inspiring you style wise lately?

Love the skulls and charms! So sweet!


I'm rather inspired by the fact that I can wear my early maternity skinnies at the mo! :)
