Me at Armoire

On Thursday I headed down to my favorite local dress boutique Armoire to check out the stunning handbag and leather moulded jewellery collection from Wear Me, (which I fell in love with the moment I brought a gold and blue suede clutch bag from earlier in the year) and to meet Amma Gyan, the lovely designer...
My one true love of the day were these oversized clutch bags (£119) - I really, really need to get my hands on the purple one! The straps are detachable so as well as a clutch, this bag is also great as a handbag or a mini messenger bag (they're two straps, and of course I tried them both out!) The black one is great, but as my go to colour the beautiful purple leather really stood out an it was the first item in the store I gravitated to.
Something I'd never seen before was the technique of leather moulding to make jewellery, which Amma showed me was what she'd done for her ivy leaf jewellery collection (£305). I was absolutely blown away, and I automatically started mentally running through my closet to work out which dresses I could wear with them all. 
I also loved these smaller clutches (£55), and would have totally wanted one if I was a clutch sort of person. Though I can totally attest to how versatile, pretty and well made Me's clutches are, because the only one I actually own is the first thing I ever brought from this collection!
As I'm such a dress person out of everything I looked at I also want to get my hands on one of these  long gold ivy leaf pendants. (£35)
Finally, the award for show stopper of the day has to go to this show piece Amma brought along. (£395) Everyone at the event was vaguely obsessed by it and I'm sure you can all understand why; it's beauty is absolutely breathtaking...
Finally we were all surprised with goody bags made out of reclaimed curtains (actually very chic) containing a discount in their online store, body lotion, a cocktail recipe I'm just dyeing to try and some homemade red current jam I will be sampling with my breakfast tomorrow morning!

Which is your favorite piece from the collection?
