Crystal Drenching: From the Catwalk to Your Closet

When they said more is more, they were definitely talking about the latest trend to spark delight on the global catwalks – crystal drenching.

Models shone from head to toe with stunning headpieces, statement jewellery and crystal-adorned shoes. We’re fully on board with this trend but understand there’s a fine line between looking like a disco-ball and looking crystal chic…that’s why we’ve pulled together our most shining looks for everyone.

Fresh Flair

Make an entrance with a stunning hair piece that’ll add something standout to your collection, like the Bling Braid Multi Strand Comb Slide; pop in in the perfect pony, braid it in your plait … the options are endless. The Rainbow Jewel Hair Slides are an easy way to incorporate the trend in your everyday style – after all, who doesn’t want to sparkle on a Monday morning? 

Glow All Out

These sparkling statement earrings embrace the idea of more is more and are the easiest way to update any outfit this season. The Cup Chain Waterfall Earrings will glisten and swing in the light as you dance all night long. You also can’t go wrong with a sparkly update on the season’s hottest style – the hoop. The Billie Statement Drop Earrings will bring supercharged sparkle to your look, and your party-season wardrobe will thank you.

Anything but Basic

The beloved collar necklace has received a shimmering makeover this season, as seen on the runways. It’s the perfect way to add a little elegance to your outfit, while amping up your look – it’s all in the details. The Classic Pave Cut Out Collar Necklace will bring a touch of elegance to your look (and can be matched with the Classic Pave Cut Out Chandelier Earrings for ultimate glamour). If you prefer something understated that’ll still standout, try the Pave V Mini Collar Necklace, it’s the perfect match for your LBD. 

Sparkle Factor 100

A little glitz and a whole lot of glam, pick a product that sparkles as you move, with delicate fringing or dainty drops. The Freya Crystal Drop Ring Handle Clutch Bag brings the crystal drenching trend to any look. Carry the look throughout your whole outfit and pair your party-ready bag with the Crystal Cup Chain Slinky Drop Earrings or the Cup Chain Layered Choker Necklace (or both, more is more after all!)

Autumn’s Top Trends With Francesca Perks

 We are fully embracing the change in season and all the fashion-related perks that come with it; think wrapping up in scarves and luxe new colour palettes. Here are our seasonal must-haves styled by fashion influencer, Francesca Perks.

The Jewel Tone Handbag

We get it, in the cooler months your wardrobe tends to lean toward the darker side; in other words black, black and black. Add a touch of colour to brighten up your outfit – and your mood – with a jewel tone handbag. Our fave hues?

Red Hot

On-trend croc print? Check. Detachable cross-body strap? Check. Bold colourway to add the ultimate pop of colour? Check. The Emma Croc Handheld Bag takes you from work to play with plenty of sophistication.

Green Queen

An update on the classic wintry hues of black, grey and navy, green is a fresh and on trend hue. Inject some vibrancy into your wardrobe with the Rebecca Croc Shoulder Bag (left) which features croc print and gold finishings. It’s the perfect size for an everyday bag; there’s space for keys, phone, book and snacks! The Dani Dome Cross Body Bag (right)  features touches of suede and comes in a chic domed silhouette, offering another unique update to your collection.

Star-bright Sparkle: Celestial-inspired headbands 

It’s no secret this season we are all about headbands and the celestial print (again), so, why not combine both? Whether you’re hiding a bad hair day or adding the finishing touch to a perfect blowdry, these hairbands will become your go to. Add something a little different to your look with the Shooting Star Embellished Wide Alice Hair Band (left),which is full of mystic eastern influences.  On the other hand for lovers of all things monochrome (with the added lush touch of velvet) the Velvet Star Embroidered Alice Hair Band is a bold yet simplistic touch.


The Beaded Bag

The definition of arm candy, the Check Beaded Shoulder Bag is created by hand with a mix of monochrome beads. This nostalgic take on our favourite childhood fashion accessory has an everyday-friendly long strap and just enough space for the important things.

Cooler weather means snuggling up in all things cosy and for this we are thankful. The Luxe Faux Fur Stole is a glamorous addition to your winter warmer collection, taking you from morning commute to dinner out. The luxurious green hue is perfect for brightening up any dark and gloomy days.



Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Meet CoppaFeel! founder, Kris Hallenga

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month (1st – 31st October) we’re proudly supporting breast cancer awareness charity, CoppaFeel! by donating £20,000 of the profits from our exclusive feel-good boutique collection of products. We caught up with the charity’s fearless and fabulous founder, Kris Hallenga…

A: Hi Kris, it’s a pleasure to meet you. Please introduce yourself!

I’m Kris, the founder of CoppaFeel!. When I’m not talking about boobs I’m probably banging on about my cat, Lady Marmalade. I’m 33 (turning 34 in November!), I have an identical twin sister called Maren and I live in beautiful Cornwall.

A: What is the best thing about being the founder of CoppaFeel!?

I think being the founder of anything is pretty damn cool. I never saw myself as someone driven or motivated enough to start something brand new before I was diagnosed so I actually really surprised myself. Obviously, the proudest thing is seeing the impact we’re having and the response we get from all our campaigning and hard work. It makes it all so ruddy worth it.

A: It shows incredible strength that your reaction to the diagnosis was to start a charity to help others, where did you find that strength, energy and passion?

I have no idea. But I actually think we all possess a little bit of that killer badass inside us, and we just don’t know it’s there until we really need it. I find the energy because I know what we do matters and I’m passionate because I see the impact. Nothing worth doing is easy and straight forward. Having said that, I have my moments of weakness and low-energy, but I think that’s allowed!

A: What is the most important message you communicate to your audience?

CHECK YOUR BOOBS. It’s as simple as that. Currently, we’re running a campaign called “Grab Life By The Boobs”. The premise is that we want everyone to have a future free from breast cancer. Every ounce of life is precious so it’s worth grabbing on to and celebrating, much like your body.

A: In what way do you spread your very important messages?

We visit schools, recruit ambassadors at universities, we take our boob mobile Belinda to festivals, we have a free text message reminder and hand out copious amounts of shower stickers, which are a useful prompt to check in the shower. Each year we also put on our annual event called Festifeel at the House of Vans in London. This is a big ol’ celebration of everything we do and helps us to get the word out even further (plus it raises money, which is of course also beneficial!)

A: It’s CoppaFeel!’s 10 year anniversary this year, what’s your proudest moment/fondest memory of the past decade?

Gosh, there are so many things I’m proud of! I love that we’ve created a charity that gives people the opportunity to be good humans. Our team are good humans and everyone who volunteers for us LOVE what they do and it’s so nice to see. Of course, the proudest thing of all is hearing from people we’ve reached telling us their cancer has been diagnosed early because they were checking themselves and they knew the symptoms to look for. We can’t say for sure that we’ve saved lives because cancer has a sneaky habit of sometimes returning in the future, but we know for certain that we’ve given people the best chance of surviving because, statistically speaking, if a cancer is found at the earliest stage the survival rate is vastly higher. We believe everyone deserves that chance.

A: You already do so many amazing things, what’s next for Coppafeel!

Wider reach, to more people, more communities, more “pockets” of people who are currently not being educated. We want to reach BME groups, people who don’t go to uni, young mums and basically everyone that needs to hear our message. Having said that, we also want to ensure what we already do is done even better, even bigger and more efficiently. There’s no need for big changes because we’re already doing big things, we just have to do them better.

A: What’s your favourite ‘everyday’ motivational mantra / affirmation?

“Breathe”. Reminding myself to take a good deep breath is the most grounding thing I can do each day and it really helps me focus!

A: Aside from boob-checking, what other self-care rituals do you have?

I bloody love having a bath. It’s the ultimate “me” moment when I take a long soak in epsom salts. I also like to stretch out my body and practice yoga and reformer pilates.

A: How important is it for CoppaFeel! to partner with brands? (… Like us!)

Hugely! We need as many different audiences to listen to our message and the vehicle for doing that is brand partnerships. It would take us way longer to reach such a huge group of people without you guys! Of course, we also very much need the funds to keep doing our work. For me, partnerships have to feel authentic and truly meaningful. When a brand puts their name to a charity we make sure the people signing the contract actually check their boobs – what’s the point in telling your audience to do something that you haven’t committed to yourself?

A: Which is your favourite piece from the Accessorize x CoppaFeel! collection?

I love the scarf. I’m really into fun forms of headgear and I think it’s so cute to tie it up on your head – or alternatively round your neck!

There are a few colourways to choose from, so pick a shade that complements your wardrobe best.

Everything You Are: Camilla Rega

World, meet Camilla Rega. A scientist and postdoctoral training fellow at the Institute of Cancer Research, Camilla’s days are spent investigating breast cancer in a laboratory. But not one to put a limit on what she can achieve, she can be also be found in the dance studio, expressing herself through classical ballet. Here’s her story.



What does a typical day look like for you?

I go to the lab around 9:30-10am, but not without having had a massive breakfast first – I’m Italian so every meal must be enjoyed and made with love. My working day finishes around 6:30pm and after that, I get home for a snack. I usually do ballet twice a week, weekends too if possible. My body needs it! On weekends, I also tend to go out with friends to catch up and relax but sometimes I go to the lab for experiments.



Tell us about your passion…

I was three years old when I started dancing. I’d seen my older sister perform and fell in love with the costumes, the choreography and the music. I immediately wanted to start the year after and so I began to dance even though I was so little! Dancing feels like being in another world. Far away from everything. There is only your soul dancing through your body.




What have you learned from ballet?

Ballet has deeply shaped my personality. The dance world is tough. You have to make a lot of sacrifices but it’s worth it in the end. The take-home message is that to get things done, you have to be committed to it!


What makes you feel like you?

I like wearing simple accessories during ballet, like stud earrings, delicate rings, and fine necklaces. At weekend, I love wearing more eccentric jewellery with pared-back outfits.



Talk us through your style…

My look is super simple during my work days (comfy and clean for the lab!), and more elegant and chicer when I go out. I tend to wear silver accessories in wintertime and gold during summer (it looks better with a tan!) but it depends on what I wear.


What surprises people about you?

That I’m a scientist as well as a ballet dancer.


What advice would you give to your younger self?

You are living your own life, follow your dreams and fight for them!

Everything You Are: Sharon Hoyos-Martinez

Meet Sharon Hoyos-Martinez. Football enthusiast and all-round go-getter, Sharon lives life outside of the box by being true to herself. Whether commanding the football pitch or the dance floor, she proves that life can be as multi-faceted as you are.


What does a typical day look like for you?

I currently work in business administration at a sports law company. My job involves staying up-to-date with all the current sports news, so this definitely motivates me to keep active and healthy as I read up daily on inspiring athletes and their incredible stories. In the evening, I will either have football training, strength and conditioning training at the gym, boxing training (for my upcoming charity fight) or yoga. I like to mix my exercise up and not stick to one main sport because this causes injury, so I like to keep it varied to activate all parts of my body also because I get bored easily. If I’m not training, I’m probably socialising with friends (we usually catch up over a meal as I’m a huge foodie!) or going to gigs together.


Tell us about your passion…

I started playing football when I was about six years old. Just at school, it was something that I was naturally drawn to. I think I had a lot of energy and sports was the best way to release it. I used to be the only girl playing. I’d arrive at school early just to play. After playing at a decent level, I didn’t have enough support or opportunity to continue, and eventually ended up coaching around the world with Arsenal. This was an invaluable experience that showed me how influential football, and sport in general, can be, wherever you may come from. Then, I came back to London to study International Football Business and graduated with a first-class honours degree.



How does football make you feel?

Now that I look back, I realise football made me feel free. It allowed me to express myself creatively on the pitch both physically and mentally. I realised it was a form of escapism from reality, when I was playing or training, I was solely focused on the present, nothing else matters at least for that hour or two. Don’t get me wrong – it can be very frustrating when you don’t win or perform at your best but that’s all part of it. You learn to bounce back. Playing in a team is something I really enjoy; you’re constantly striving for a goal together and this makes you feel part of something important.



Talk us through your style…

Original, mix of classic and new. London street, sporty chic. I usually dress for the occasion, I enjoy glamming up too, but if it’s not me, I won’t wear it. I think you are able to see both my feminine and tomboy nature in the way I dress. During weekdays, I can’t really wear jewellery because of training but on the weekend, you’ll probably catch me with like six rings and three necklaces!


What makes you feel like you?

I love accessories: hats, sunglasses and jewellery. I love details and think one item makes an outfit. I feel naked without my rings, and on a night out you’ll probably catch me wearing hoops – classic Latina. I love music and I am quite varied when it comes to genres. Dancing salsa really makes me feel alive. I grew up waking up to noise and music (my family is Colombian) so it’s a big part of me. Growing up in London, I’m also into hip-hop and grime and love working out to hype music – I get so gassed. Give me great music, sport and food and I’m a happy Shaz.



What advice would you give to your younger self?

Enjoy the process, enjoy the journey. Don’t care what others say or think. Authenticity is everything and being your truest self is the best way to shine.

Everything You Are: Steph Tress

Showing us there’s more to an #Accessorizer than meets the eye, professional cellist Steph Tress expresses herself not only through her music but also through her personal sense of style. Welcome to her world…


What’s a typical day like for you?

There’s no such thing as a typical day in my life. I tend to be in different places each week and my schedule varies but obviously, I spend a lot of time playing the cello! Sometimes this means practising at home (in my pyjamas) and often rehearsing with other people. I have a string quartet and we get together for a few days of intensive rehearsal most weeks. Sometimes I spend the day recording in the studio while on others, I teach cello. On some evenings, I also perform in concerts.



Tell us about your passion…

I started playing the cello when I was six. Now, people are definitely interested when they see me travelling around with my cello. I’m often asked what instrument I’m carrying on the train or bus, usually followed by “it’s bigger than you!” (for the record, I’m 5’1”). It’s hard to know for certain what I’ve gained from playing the cello other than the enjoyment because I’ve been doing it for so long. But playing with other people requires sensitivity and the ability to really listen which I hope are skills I have outside of playing music too. Being freelance, I also have to be organised and super-motivated – it doesn’t come naturally so that is something I’ve had to learn!

What makes you feel like you?

I really love performing. Partly it’s just the joy of the music but I also think there’s an intensity of concentration that I get when I’m performing that I don’t really get in another situation. And I’ll be honest, I do enjoy getting lots of compliments after a concert!




How would you describe your style?

I like wearing a simple outfit with big earrings and a nice necklace. I’m not afraid to wear bold patterns and colour. I normally wear gold-based jewellery but often for concerts, I wear silver-toned metals because it’s more visible and sparkly on stage! On a night out, I always have to wear big earrings. Maybe that’s because I usually wear smaller earrings for concerts or teaching so it’s quite nice to feel glamorous.




How would your close friends and family describe you?

Hopefully, loyal, ambitious, hardworking and fun on a night out!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Worry less, and worry less about worrying…

Everything You Are: Miriam Zouhou

Meet Miriam Zouhou, England boxer and sports science student at the University of Birmingham. Defining herself in more ways than one, Miriam lets us into life in the boxing ring, as well as everything else that has made her into who she is….



Tell us about your passion…

I’ve always been sporty as a child. Then I heard about a boxing club near my house and that it would be good to keep fit. I’d always thought boxing was for boys and it was aggressive. When I went to the gym, everything changed. I realised I was ignorant to what the sport offers and I fell in love with it. Boxing makes me feel strong, determined and like I can achieve whatever I put my mind to. Some days are tough, but you get through them. It’s impossible to put into words.


What are people’s reactions when they find out that you’re a boxer?

Most people are surprised. They say, you’re too pretty or too small to be a boxer. Or they ask multiple times, “What, like real boxing? Do you get hit in the face?!”.



What do you think you have gained or learnt from boxing?

It has given me confidence; if you can get in that ring then you can do anything. There aren’t many things that are tougher than stepping through the ropes. It had made me independent as you have to do a lot on your own. It has given me a second home and a second family.


What makes you feel like you?

I always wear a small pair of studs or tiny hoop earrings (though I lose a pair almost every week). I like to wear a small necklace as well, although I have to take these off when sparring. The boxing club is where I feel the most comfortable, and buzz you get when you’re in the ring is one you can’t describe. When you’re fighting, I hear nothing but my coach, it’s like you’re in a bubble. I also like going to the pub with my friends, or spending time with my family, listening to music, and having a dance.


How would you describe your style?

My style is quite simple and practical, I like wearing jumpsuits and jeans with Converse day-to-day. Nothing too stand-out, though I do like having some bright colours.


How does your look change?

I usually carry a bigger bag or rucksack in the week to carry all my stuff but on the weekends, I carry a small bag big enough for essentials. I do love to dress up in a sparkly dress and heels when I get the chance, though it doesn’t happen enough!



How would your close friends and family describe you?

Hardworking, funny, helpful, moody and exasperating! They’d also say that I don’t give up on things until they’re finished.


What surprises people about you?

That I can be so “scary” in the ring when my personality is so “sunny”.


What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don’t sweat the small stuff and always have a positive attitude. And to remember that everyone makes mistakes.
