Love Heart Sweet Message Earrings // £25 // Jennifer Loiselle
Thanks to independent jewellery designer Jennifer Loiselle, you can now wear one of your favourite David Bowie songs hanging from your ears. While I'm not certain that the inspiration behind these was actually the 1983 hit of the same name (other pieces in the same collection seem to reference Swizzels Matlow's popular 'Love Hearts' sweet) you can certainly "put on your red shoes and dance the blues" and pretend they are.

Sparkle & Stars Face Tattoo // £8 // Orelia
"Keep your 'lectric eye on me, babe": This great little pack of gold and silver metallic temporary face tattoos comes with a range of sizes from teeny tiny delicate shooting stars to a intricate sparkling designs for the eyelids. For something that's a little more subtle than painting a golden circle on your forehead, these are perfect accessory for unleashing your glam rock party alterego.

David Bowie Make-up Bag // £21.69 // Kayci Wheatley
This cotton canvas make-up bag created by Etsy user Kayci Wheatley features David Bowie's iconic Aladdin Sane album cover. I know, guys: A practical zip-up make-up pouch adorned with an army of little Bowie faces is that exact thing you've been looking for, for what feels like your entire life (but probably didn't realise it until now). Its also available in blue. You're absolutely welcome.

Star Skinny Scarf // £12 // Topshop
1970s style skinny scarves are super on-trend right now. This one in particular is very Diamond Dogs era Bowie, sort of like the one he wears in this clip of him performing 'Rebel Rebel'. It's definitely one of my favourite looks of his! Take note and pair your scarf with a blouse layered under a jumpsuit for a serious seventies vibe (maybe skip the eyepatch - none of us are that cool!). For more inspiration on how to rock this accessory, check out the Chloe's AW15 and Rodarte's SS16 collections.

Zebra Print Pleat Jumpsuit // £38 // Topshop
Any David Bowie inspired wishlist post wouldn't be complete without at least one fabulous jumpsuit. He was truly a pioneer of androgynous fashion in mainstream pop culture, by rocking things like make-up, long hair, kimonos, and a lot of jumpsuits. While this one from Topshop doesn't include one leg and shoulder pads, it does boast a double whammy of zebra print and micro pleats.

RIP David Bowie. May you continue to inspire generations to come.
