All about accessories ... Alexis Bittar

Rarely will I ascribe to hype over high-priced 'costume jewelry,' however, I continually make the exception with the designer Alexis Bittar.

Offered in an array of candy-coloured and season-centric colours, the hand-carved lucite designs are a simple throw-on for virtually any outfit and a celebrity favourite with the likes of Olivia Palermo, Beyoncé and Cameron Diaz.

My favourite pieces in my personal collection include an array of bangles and a statement necklace I wore in another blog post.
