Little bit in love with all things hairy and moustache-shaped at the min! Where did all this come from?! Have i missed something?! What started with women wearing tuxedos, Alexa Chung being described as 'Androgynous' and me being frowned at by certain boy who will remain nameless for wanting to buy a flowery bow tie a while ago; has suddenly turned into moustache mania everywhere!

Actual moustaches are tickly for those of us unfortunate enough to kiss someone with one (lord knows they must tickle the wearer!) and not altogether that appealing. Maybe just good to look at. Many men wear them well. But there are much more fun ways to wear yours now.
I was extremely excited after our new jewellery bay Coquette was popped out at the beginning of february. (In accessorize we do a little re-jig of our layout each month and every couple of months we launch a new jewellery bay depending on the season. Coquette is very bright, a little bit Pop Art and tongue in cheek. Aside from the excitement of new and exciting Accessorize jewllery, on it was a lovely little moustache style pendant which everyone else seemed to hate, yet i loved straight away!

And it seems since i bought my lovely little pendant i keep seeing lots of things with Moustaches on, moustaches all over or inspired by moustaches! A bit like when you hear a word you have never heard before and then once you know what it means, suddenly everyone seems to be saying it.
Not sure if any of you have heard of Zoe Karssen, but here is a new designer getting a little bit of a following now for her laid back sweatshirts and T-shirts inspired by Pop culture and anyone from Kate Moss to Blondie. Worth having a goosey gander at most certainly, and currently available at Harrods and due to launch soon at MyWardrobe too. I love this moustache-y sweatshirt, it would look lovely teamed with a printed skirt or flowery trousers.

It would be rude to write about moustaches without mentioning the dear Tatty Devine. Tatty Devine make the most lovely pieces of jewllery. Thier pieces are very tongue in cheek, cheeky and fun! And the thing i love most is they are always bang up to date with whats hot too. If you don't take your costume jewllery too seriously they are definetly worth a look. They have also done some super duper collaborations with everyone from Rob Ryan to Eley Kishimoto. My favourite section is their 'Old Curiosity Shop' where you can find some really unique pieces. I cannot even put into words how much i adore these little shoes….

It is not very often i am speechless but these little lace ups took my breath away! They are hand crafted in soft grey pony skin with leather soles and bare a little wooden moustache on each shoe. Designer Daita Kimura was apparently inspired by mice…how sweet. Since they come in at a hefty £220 i shall not be buying them anytime soon. I have however been promised some handmade little wooden moustaches of my own to thread through my shoelaces by a certain someone…rather excited.
Oops! But of course Tatty do some lovely moustache jewellery too…i have been distracting myself with the moustache-y mice shoes!

The sweet little wooden necklace is made from solid walnut and priced at £27. The middle necklace is sterling silver, U.K made and priced at £125 and the little perspex beauty is just £24. So moustaches to suit any budget…..my favourite is the little walnut one. I would wear it with a printed tea dress, chocolate brown tights and the little Paris Lace Ups….in my dreams.
