My Style...Part 2(?)

Hey fashionistas! So I was just playing around on and I found that there were many different templates to use if you're looking for inspiration. Here are some of the templates I used to create different looks:

Putting the "Access" in Accessories

An outfit is sometimes not complete without accessories. Accessories can add a punch to an outfit, and really show off a person's unique style. For example, if you were wearing a white blouse and black skirt, your look would most likely say "classic." However, just by adding a studded belt, knee-high boots, and a chunky necklace, the look would suddenly shift from "classic" to "edgy."
I love accessories. Particularly ones that feature pearls, bows, flowers, hearts, butterflies...anything that would make you say, "aw, that's so cute!" (I do this all the time when browsing websites.) Oh, and if they didn't cost so much, that would be great too.
On my recent (well, not so recent anymore) trip to England, I came across possibly the best accessory store in the entire world. Literally. The name of the store is Accessorize. If you like pearls, flowers, and bows like me, I recommend you check out the link below:
For some reason, I can only get the USA site now, but I'm sure there's a way to change it to Great Britain pounds or Euros.
I love everything on this website. Absolutely everything. There is only one small fault: it is a tad bit expensive. The style laid out by Accessorize is similar to that of Forever 21. When I compared some products from both sites, they were almost identical, except in price. While accessories from Accessorize can range from $5 to $35, accessories from Forever 21 are rarely over $15. Let's compare, shall we?
Cute Cupcake Pendant Necklace
The one on the right is a cupcake necklace from Accessorize, costing $9, while the ice cream necklace on the left is from Forever 21 and is only $4.80.
Pearly Owl Pendant Necklace

The owl necklace on the right is $10 from Accessorize, whereas the one from Forever 21 is $6.80.
Capri Luxe Multi Bangles
The set of gold bangles on the left is $32 from Accessorize; the pack on the right is $6.80 at Forever 21.
Lily Cute Stacking Ring
The set of cute rings on the left is $14 from Accessorize while the ones on the right are $4.80 from Forever 21.
925 Silver Peony Flower Stud Earrings                               
The flower earrings on the left are $9 from Accessorize, however, at Forever 21 a set of three only comes to $3.80.

Pearl Rosette Chain Bando                            
The floral headband on the left is $14 from Accessorize; a similar one from Forever 21 is $4.80.
Ditsy Postcard Travel Weekender
The handbag on the left is $70 from Accessorize, a similar one from Forever 21 is $30.80.
Now, I'm not advertising in any way that you should never shop at Accessorize just because Forever 21 is cheaper, I'm just comparing prices of similar items. Having bought accessories from both these stores, I can say that the quality is pretty much the same.
I credit the websites of Accessorize and Forever 21 for all the photos.
