This week for Accessory Friday, we chose Purple Flower Designs because they are just so darn cheerful. How could you be in a bad mood if you're carrying a bag around such as the Freedom Bag in Daisy in the Grass or the Handbag in Poppy on a Sunny Day? Others we like include Book Bag in Blossoms and Branches and Mini Wallet in Nik I Bought New Fabric.

J Pat Purses is so wonderful because they have a bunch of beautiful fabrics that they use. They also make a bunch of smaller items, including wristlets, coin purses, and mini wallets. We love the iPod cases too. If you are in the market for some smaller bag accessories, this is a great place to start.

We recently discovered Gorjana Jewelry, and we are so happy we did! They have a bunch of beautiful and unusual pieces that we are longing for! Some of our top picks are the Bali Tear Earrings, the Willow Cuff, the Shadow Circle Earrings, and the Bali Ring. Many items are available in both silver and gold, which is great for us because so often we'll discover something we love available in silver, and the Shirt Snob only wears gold. Unfortunately, their site is in flash so we can't link to the individual products, but definitely check out their site! You'll love what you see.

If you enjoy being a hostess and entertaining your friends and family, you definitely need a cute apron to protect your clothing. We've discovered some great ones at Wishing Fish. The Shirt Snob is partial to the Baby Blue Mocha Apron and the Pink Paris Hostess Apron, but there are a bunch of others as well. Wear one when you're cooking for friends or just thinking about it (maybe while reading I Like You, a great hostess book by Amy Sedaris!).

The Shirt Snob is a big fan of belts, so we were very excited to discover the Bandana Belts over at American Pig Brand. Paisley is one of those love it or hate it patterns, and while we aren't usually a big fan of them on most items, we think it works quite well on these belts. Available in brown and cream, black and white, white with black, and cream with brown, these belts also have an engraved wood face, and is 1.5 inches thick.

Two Sisters Jewelry Boutique is a jewelry store started by twin sisters in Washington State earlier this summer. One makes the jewelry and the other does the business side of the company. We think it sounds like a pretty fun job, working with one's sister! They have a ton of great pieces available on their site, including bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, offered both in goldfill and silver. Some of the semi-precious stones they use include white agate, Swarovski crystals and pearls, red coral, grey onyx, and quartz. We were sent two pieces, the Rosie Necklace and the Dakota Earrings.

We're said before that we enjoy writing letters. Who doesn't love receiving them from friends and family, especially when you aren't expecting it? It's more fun to write letters on pretty cards and stationary, and we think that Fun Paper Goods by Lexie Sullivan quite fun and stylish. Each set has six cards in it and are blank inside, so you can use them for anything, whether it be a thank you note, sending birthday wishes, or just saying hello to an old friend. Help us to bring back letter writing, and doing so in style!

Sometimes the Shirt Snob feels like we live under a rock. We'll discover a site and wonder how we ever lived without them, how we have gotten this far in life without ever heard of a place. This is the case for Max & Chloe. They are the ultimate accessory shop, selling bags, both fine and fashion jewelry, and a ton more. After quickly browsing their site, we've already discovered a ton of things we want. If you like to shop all at once instead of perusing many different stores, this is the place for you. We see a ton of pieces that we want! If you are in need of jewelry and bags, definitely consider them!

Everyone has a cell phone and an iPod these days. How do you carry yours around though? We really like the Gadget Carriers at Mamadama Designs. Just large enough to fit your phone or iPod, these carriers have great fabrics, so you can carry your gadgets around in style. They also have a couple of small pockets to hold your credit card or cash and can be ordered with a wrist strap, button, or snap. Some of our favorites include Lovin Lotus, Brown Pink Paisley, Pink Wallflower, and Yummy Flowers.
