SOMETIMES when you walk into an accessories store, it can be overwhelming.

There are so many choices of bags, shoes and jewellery. Where do you begin?

Start small and look at items individually.

This way, you can discover their unique design features and know instinctively if it's a yes or no, according to your style.

Once you have an item you love, it's easier to pick something to go with it.

This can be something of similar style or of complementing or contrasting colour.

As you can see, accessories mix up a simple outfit base.

The items used for this shoot were from the Just For You shop in Tannum Sands.

The store is where the old Lilac Lillies cafe used to be and items are priced for a steal.

It's for a limited time only though - the deteriorating lavender Queenslander is earmarked for development!
