Heroic Accessories

If Iron Man were a cross dresser — or at the very least an accessory-loving metrosexual — I wonder if he might carry a purse like this rosegold Kooba "Gemma"?

I got this on eBad, a great deal although it has some splotchy spots.

Since I'm not a superhero, is it great or granny? I'm still trying to decide. I'm thinkin' with a very barebones basic outfit (white tee, jeans), it'd provide be a fun pop of heavy metal.

I'm pretty sure Iron Man couldn't resist this Deborah Lippman "Boom Boom Pow" gold-dust nailpolish, though. This stuff is awesome. It paints on very sheer with gold flecks of varying size. Alone, it gives nails a subtle sheen.

Layered over another color, say a purple with gold undertones, it would look good, too. Of course, Iron Man wouldn't dare do the bag and the nails at the same time. That would be overkill.

Kooba makes an amazing bag. I agree, with a simple outfit, it would be fabulous. The metallic is subtle enough that it's not granny to me.
