Glamour Garbage: The Accessory edition

Some accessories make the look complete, while others, well, make it look like shit garbage, and that's worth paying attention to. I always used to wonder how hard it is to screw up a handbag or an earring or a scarf, and when I was doing some online shopping, I realized how wrong and naive I was. There were catastrophic designs to be seen almost everywhere: overuse of leather pleatings on a tiny frame of a handbag; too many stones in weird shapes on an earring; garish prints on scarves...oh, darlings, don't even get me started. I agree, some tastes are very specific and target certain audience, but then there are those styles that are just plain bad. Grrrr....garbage!

Let's take a trip down this smelly lane, shall we?
