Keeping toasty cupcake style

Today was the first day of Autumn and typically our weather reacted badly with monsoon-like weather in London, and in our office which a couple of months after the restoration work leaks like a blooming sieve! What better excuse than the impending cold to head to the shops and stock up on some lovely Winter woollies, and these cupcake items from Accessorize are just perfect.

I definitely want these cupcake gloves - they are too cute to resist and my hands are always cold in the Winter! They are kids sizes but my last gloves were from the kids range at H&M so hopefully they'll fit - if not I'll squeeze them in. Accessorize bring out adult versions - don't you know adults love cupcakes too!

While I love this cute little cupcake hat I think it may be more suited to the kids its aimed at. Imagine my poor child, if I had one, it'd be head to toe in cupcake - even worse if it was a boy! Btw if you want this hat but are a full grown adult I suggest trying it out - again I got my pom pom hat from H&M children's section and it fitted perfectly and you don't pay VAT!


If you don't fancy squeezing your head into the kiddie size one check out Fred Flare who do an adult cupcake beanie. Still not sure if I want to walk around with a cupcake on my head however.

Finally something we can all enjoy without squeezing into kiddie sizes - some lovely cupcake lip balm to keep your lips nice and kissable over the cold spell! Is it too early to prepare for the mistletoe season?

I cannot begin to tell you how much I want those cupcake gloves!! They'll be perfect for when I'm teaching in the outdoor area on placement in early January probably knee deep in snow :) xx

You will look so cute in your cupcake beanie, I have to get one for you :)

Abbie - I really hope they're going to fit my hands. I have long fingers so mightn't fit into them! Damn you and your little hands ;) but seeing as you'll be outside in the snow I'll forgive you!

Jessielou - you have so many better shops. You can go to Brooklyn and get the fred flare beanie!

Manny - I want the gloves - got enough cute hats!

jessielou said...

We do have some good ones, it is true.
I live in Brooklyn so Fred Flare is actually not too far from me (it's in Greenpoint, right?) I should get my arse there soon :)

Its' gotten so cold here today my gloves and hat will be out v.soon!
Yeah its in Greenpoint - we were meant to go there but never got round to it - got stuck around Williamsburg in bars/stores instead!

jessielou said...

I actually live in Williamsburg so I can well understand that you got distracted here!
I shall make it my mission to go to Greenpoint properly (a visit that includes more than going to Matchless) for cutesy goodness

Ok I'm even MORE jealous now! Although we did spend a lot of time there in the Brooklyn Brewery then Mugs (LOVED that place!) for a beer fest! And eating goodies in Penny Licks!

They have really excelled themselves - my Christmas list is pretty much all of it! Although not sure I can wait that long! I'm so impatient.
Not worth the walk at all to Soho - might as well get one of the new soda range from Hummingbird!

Next and Paperchase sure make my xmas shopping easier - no more traipsing round Oxford Street feeling homicidal :)
