The Shirt Snob has just discovered and sometimes Y over at Chocosho, and we love this designer's clutches. They are constructed out of vintage men's ties, and we really like the color combinations. Each has subtle embroidery, has a magnetic snap closure, and there's a large vintage button over the closure on each. Our favorite is definitely the Shade of Brown Clutch, but there is also the Shade of Red and Grey Clutch, the Aqua Purple Clutch, the Cyan-Red Paisley Clutch, and the Unicorns in Creme Clutch.

Not everyone can pull off something like the Elastic Hair Wrap by Gara Danielle, but if you can we highly suggest doing so. We just love this look, and it's such a great way to take a drap outfit and make it more fun. The hair wrap comes in three different designs, geisha, retro yellow, and royal silk. Each has elastic banding and ties behind the head.

The Shirt Snob has just discovered Eugenia Kim hats, and we adore them. There are the Muffy Mini Stripe Equestrian Cap, the Muffy Velvet Equestrian Cap, the Muffy Plaid Cap with No Band, and the Muffy Herringbone Cap. They come in different fabrics (wool, velvet) as well as with or without a band across the top. And each has a brim and is lined. We think they look like they'd be really fun to wear and can really add personality to whatever outfit you're wearing.

If you are in a relationship, you are probably going to be celebrating Valentine's Day. We think that for Accessory Friday this week we'd show you something fun to celebrate the holiday, Valentine's Conversational Heart Panties by Juicy. These cotton boy shorts have a heart detail on each pair and each says one of the following phrases: Kiss My Couture, I Love Juicy, and Live For Sugar.

The Shirt Snob has just discovered some bags that remind us of when we were little. Goodmorning, morning! makes all sorts of handbags, such as bookbags, gathered bags, scalloped bags, quilted purses, and more. Each item is handmade, and they are made using recycled vintage household textiles, which is what we love about them. Some of our favorites include the Brown Apple Bookbag, the Green Floral Patch Flap Purse, the Blue Floral Scalloped Bag, and the Red Tulip Birdie Pouch.

Tiny Marie is an independent design studio that makes jewelry and handbags as well as other accessories. Everything is one of a kind, and once it's sold, it's gone. We like the idea of having something totally unique, and we really like the items sold here, especially the bags. Some of our favorites include the Gia Mini Wristlet, the Carly Wristlet, and the Ava Clutch.

For Accessory Friday, we're looking at Viola Valone necklaces at Shop Intuition. What first caught our eye were the Charlotte Spider Necklace and the Antique Charlotte Spider Necklace. While the Shirt Snob is not entirely sure we'd be able to wear them as we freak out over spiders, they are beautiful and certainly eye catching. Viola Valone also has he Skull Necklace, available with either emerald or ruby eyes, and the Anchor Chain Skull Necklace, which was recently worn by Ashley Simpson. We still can't get enough of skull items and designs, so we are really fond of both these necklaces.
We'll be taking a few days off, back sometime next week. Hope everyone has a safe and pleasant holiday!

For Accessory Friday this week, we'll be looking at hats, particularly newsboy hats. The Shirt Snob has been seeing them all over the place, and we found some very affordable possibilities for you. If you look good in hats, this might be a fun trend to try out. The Boiled Wool Newsboy Caps come in five colors and are 100% wool so they'll still keep your head warm this winter. The Wool Flannel Newsboy Caps are a wool and flannel mix and are available in three colors. The Brimmed Crochet Beanies look a little more like your typical winter hat as they are knit, and they have a brim that can be worn out or tucked inside. They come in red and black. And finally, if you're a cashmere fan, consider the Chunky Cashmere Hand Crochet Newsboy Caps. Available in three colors, these are a little more expensive, but they are super cute and have matching scarves as well.

Plenty of people travel during the holidays, so why not do so in style? The Shirt Snob thinks that these Luggage Tags by Tepper Jackson are the perfect accessory to your drab and boring black suitcases. Available in four different designs, you can really show your personality in a unique way with these tags. They would also make a great stocking stuffer! Also by Tepper Jackson are Card Holders, Passport Wallets, Cosmetic Purses, and even Keychains, so if you love these designs, you can buy them all up!

This week for Accessory Friday we're going to show you some belts as we haven't done them in a while. Deepa Gurnani makes some pretty impressive ones. We really like the 24" Empire Line Belt. Made from a patterned cotton that is top stitched with metallic thread, it has ornate cutouts and a double set of ties on each side. It's a great way to spice up a simple top. The Belt w/ Antique Embroidery is also quite stunning as well.
