When it comes to
Rommy Kuperus’s foodie fashion accessories, you can have your cake and wear it too.
Totally calorie free, her fanciful, over-the-top creations break all the rules, definitely turn heads, and are just too much fun.
Fancy a candy roll purse, a waffle clutch, a fried egg brooch? No need to cry over spilled coffee when you can wear a matching coffee bean necklace.
Did you know it’s totally de rigueur to accessorize with baked goods? How do you think baguette got its name?
And poor pasta, always getting such a bad carbo-rap. Why not stash all your guilt in Rommy’s farfalle bow clutch?
While you’re at it, deck out your male friends in babelicious bow ties. Is there anything cooler?
