So looking at these pictures gave me a whole new perspective on this Christopher Kane for Topshop purse.  It really reminds me of one of those bags traditionally worn with a kilt (Wikipedia tells me this is called a sporran).  Anyway, I didn't have any particular direction when I put this outfit together, but I kind of like the Western/Victorian/Gothic vibe that I ended up with. Oh and I finally remembered to get a close-up of the locket thing that I wear all the time.

Another thought: I was less than thrilled about the belt that came with these shorts when I first bought them.  I'm glad I gave them a second chance.
