Marc Jacobs heels, J Brand skinny jeans (courtesy of Net-a-Porter), perspex bangle and silver charm bracelet both Mimco
A bit like my thing for lip motifs (that I wrote about here), occasionally I have a strange liking for things that shouldn’t work, but somehow do. For summer, I’m loving crystal clear perspex in the form of accessories and accents.
Along with a beloved perspex and crystal bangle from Mimco, I’ve been wearing these clear Marc by Marc Jacobs heels on high rotation of late. I call them my Cindarella heels – don’t they look like pretty glass slippers (Cindarella would have certainly preferred these, I’m sure…).

However as these shoes demonstrate, perspex hides nothing and therefore calls for impeccable grooming – I never wear these unless my pedicure is immaculate. Similarly, a perspex chair or lamp requires constant dusting, while a transparent bag calls for an ordered selection of pretty contents – no shoving of old receipts and tissues into such a purse.
What do you make of this look? Fabulous plastic-fantastic, or too horrible for words?
Love, Miss B xx
