Tortoiseshell Accessories, Yeah They're The BESTories

Tortoiseshell accessories featuring Fossil Watch and RayBan Clubmaster sunglasses on Hello Terri Lowe UK blog.

Tortoiseshell has certainly come a long way since the days of being associated with Deirdre Rasheed's glasses in the mid 90's. I must confess, I have always had a bit of an obsession with tortoiseshell anything, so it's kinda lucky that it's now been refined in to items and accessories which aren't as erm, large. Alongside my love of this beautiful brown finish, I also have a penchant for watches. There was a time when I had quite the collection of watches, ranging from some metcha kawaii Harajuku Lovers ones I shipped in all the way from America, to my favourite brand of watch - Fossil. I don't know why I love Fossil watches so much, but I just do! I love their earthy, indie, but classy and chic designs and currently have about 5 of them! The latest addition to my collection is this tortoiseshell watch from Joshua James Jewellery.This particular design is currently out of stock, booooo, but they do a stunning rose gold coloured one in the same design here, hurrah! I also have this design in a bronze and gold version which I blogged about aaaagggesss ago too, and I wear it pretty much every day (you can see that one in action here). I know it's a bit bling bling for everyday wear, but you can't go wrong with putting a bit a 'G' in your every day accessories *clicks fingers* can I get a heeeellllll yeaaaaaah? No? OK. I really do need to stop watching RuPaul's Drag Race. Moving on; what better match for your tortoiseshell watch than a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses? THERE'S NO BETTER MATCH I TELL YOU NOW. Since getting my folding RayBan's a few months ago I have become obsessed with a good quality lens. Browsing SmartBuyglasses UK, I knew that no other section would fulfil my fancy lens dreams better than the RayBan one, so off to that tab I went and chose these beautiful tortoiseshell RayBan Clubmasters. I will hold my hands up and say that I have been *oh so tempted* to get some fake replica Rayban's off Aliexpress, but I just know that the quality will be nothing like the original ones. I love the retro style and design of the clubmaster glasses, and they are so much lighter in weight than the classic wayfarer design too. I think this is something to do with the lens thickness, as these ones don't seem to give the same crisp vision as the other pair I have, but I still think that Raybans in general are so much better quality in style, design and lens quality than a pair of £3 Primark sunnies (although I do love my flowery Primark ones for spares in my car, hehe).

  4. I really like the Fossil watch. They actually do a lot of nice stuff such as purses and bracelets. Sadly, I've not had a watch for a while but a new one is on my list for sure.
