Things I Literally Need : Stella & Bow Bracelet

1 Apr


Can you think back to 2004?

Ten whole years of hormones and Harry Potter releases ago feels like an awful long time, and you might need some serious mind yoga to remember it.

Never fear, the loopy and intensely tuned-in fashion world is here to rescue you!

Aptly entitled the ‘Burn Book Capsule Collection’, the LA-based jewellery brand has created a range of pieces that every one that has ever seen Mean Girls – which came out in 2004 –  literally needs. Of course, due to the rules of supply and demand, there are not enough for this to work, so basically you need to get one before it’s too late.

Little hearts engraved with ‘Fetch’ and those broken hearted double necklaces we used to have when we were little that said ‘best friends’, except this time they say ‘Best Bitches.’ And then, this gold plated bracelet. So fetch.

OOTD – DIY and Wolf Online

25 Mar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs a very strict rule, I am not a DIY’er. I am intensely clumsy and should not therefore, be allowed in the presence of scissors. This weekend though, I approached the scissors, picked them up, and actually managed to use them without drawing blood. By DIY’ing the old jeans that I have come to hate, I have turned them into a ripped magnificence and it feels as though I have new jeans, which is great because I am feeling the student poverty hard at the moment.

Will you please take a look at the rings I’m wearing and gasp as is only appropriate in the presence of such beauty. They are from Wolf Online, which is a home made and beautiful boutique all the way over in Australia. The delivery is free WORLDWIDE and the prices are extremely decent anyway. Safe to say, I love them to pieces and I’d be really disappointed if you didn’t go and check them out right now here.

Black Tied Jewellery

1 Feb

black tied jewellery and roseI am not a jewellery junkie. I am a shoe, bag, apparel, beauty and Malteaster bunny junkie sure, but no one could accuse me of having too many trinkets. I like a statement necklace here and there to break up my large and still-growing selection of plain tops, and I wear my Granddad’s old watch every day. But for that, I’m usually too taken in by ridiculously expensive gems to care for anything cheaper. YOU’RE WAITING FOR A BUT AND NOW YOU SHALL GET ONE.

I came across the Irish jewellery boutique Black Tied on Twitter and was, I confess, taken in by their pretty neat font. Everyone likes a good font. As you can probably guess, that wasn’t all that reeled me right in. The designs at Black Tied are better than anything I have seen at that price range and instead of struggling to choose one thing I would wear, I instead made an eight-strong basket and had to force myself to delete some in order to justify purchase.

What I ended up with was: two above the knuckle rings, one long chain Mako shark tooth necklace and one twisted double skull bracelet.

The necklace is so delicate and beautiful – it really reminds me of a more quaint version of the Givenchy shark tooth necklace and it comes with a really long chain which I find hard to get (though they will custom lengthen necklaces). The bracelet is very very like similar ones by Alexander McQueen for a fraction of the price. All the links to the jewellery I am now a proud owner of is below, as well as general links to Black Tied’s Twitter, website and ASOS Marketplace.

It’s rare of me to say it, but I really recommend this little shop of treats.
