Last night I had the pleasure of attending a special fashion blogger pre-opening of Accessorize, a popular UK store which just opened up a brand new boutique in NYC’s Union Square. I have been obsessed with Accessorize since my days of studying abroad in Barcelona. As I’ve said before, my travel buddy Alana and I would visit a new city or country every weekend and there had to have been an Accessorize at more than half of the airports we traveled through. Suffice it to say, I built up quite the collection of Accessorize goodies.  So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Accessorize was coming to the US. Time to stock up on affordable jewelry and extra cute trinkets and treasures!

At the event, each of us were given $50 to shop with and let me just say that I think I took at least an hour picking out what I wanted to buy. A chunky necklace? A wooden bangle? Some kitschy earrings? The options were endless, but I finally narrowed it down to four items: a silver ring, textured gold bangle, and two hot pink “S” keychains – one for me and one for my friend Sevan. While I love the all the pieces that I got, I imagine that I’ll be back at Accessorize doing some shopping again before I know it.

items bought: textured gold bangle, silver ring, “s” keychain •

    I was a sad day when Accessorize closed all it’s shops in the U.S. So many of my favorite rings, necklaces, and bags came from that store. I get super excited whenever I travel overseas, just so that I can indulge!

    It looks like a great store, but for $50, that’s all you got? Sounds too expensive for my taste. :-/
