The Tortoise And The Shell

Today's post is all about the trend of the season when it comes to accessories, Tortoiseshell.

I've partnered up with Monnier Freres for this post and I couldn't think of a better retailer when it comes to luxury accessories.  Admittedly I'm a little late to the Cult Gaia club but in a way I'm glad because this Tortoiseshell bag (also available in a mini version and a round version) is one of their newest designs and I can't help but feel 'so on trend' when I'm carrying it.  It's the perfect way to introduce this season's hottest trend to any of you looks, whether it be something casual like a maxi dress and sandals (ala moi) or something a little dressier, it works with so much and this is one little bag with a lot of character.

Sunglasses are another great way to add a hint of the trend to your accessories collection.  These Celine sunnies are, for me, the perfect shade of tortoiseshell and their rounded frame shape will suit most face shapes making them an excellent all-rounder...pardon the pun!  Or if you want something a little bolder these Stella McCartney shades nod towards another huge trend this season, the cat eye, and make quite the statement.

Side Note: Monnier Frères currently has a sale on with reductions of up to 50% so if you haven't checked it out already, go and have nosey...and if you see anything good, make sure you tell me haha x
