Style & Stuff Editorial
Oh, you pretty things!
If you really want to lift an outfit, give it that extra touch of razzle-dazzle, then you should follow the advice my old ma used to dish out: accessorise, accessorise, accessorise (my old ma was largely round the twist, but, in this one aspect, she was entirely correct). If you were holding one of these beauties to your bosom, you could waltz into a Christmas party in nothing but a potato sack and you’d STILL be the belle of the ball. They’re handcrafted by SOS15, a British firm who specialise in things that sparkle. They come in three colours – black, gold and silver – and each comes with that all-important Aladdin Sane style flash in red and blue. What’s more, each clutch bag is lined in delectable vintage fabric. Oh, yeah! SOS15 like to fashion their pieces in this sustainable way so that each one is truly a one-off. They’re finished with a chunky black and gold zipper, and heart-shaped pull, and are the perfect size for all your essentials, be they phone, keys, purse, lipstick or bingo mega-dobber. If you’re looking for a last minute Christmas gift (for yourself) then fill your boots.
