Head Over Heels- The Accessory Shop|Cochin Love

"HoH has gotten me endless amount of compliments, more queries than I can handle about where I shop for accessories from, and mainly, a place where I can go and I am actually spoiled for choices"

Cochin/Ernakulam has always been at the forefront of most developments in the state. It could even be considered as the district in the forefront of everything from food and culture to fashion,style and such. The much loved convent junction has always been the shopping street of choice, but it still offers shops that stock things in wholesale, with no regard for its style factor. But Panampilly Nagar and its array of boutiques and quaint little shops that stock handpicked items has become a blessing. My most favorites of this street definitely has to be Head Over Heels or HoH!

Now that question of pretty looking vanity has been put behind you, there still remains the question of functionality.
How are you going to arrange the items so that you can see it easily?
How can you make sure not to forget any palettes/lipsticks in the midst of everything?
This is the part where I help you out:
