I have a major sartorial problem, I can only wear tops that are fitted, structured or simply tight, they also have to be plain white, cream, grey, black or navy, I will go as wild as stripes but nothing else. No patterns or volume – they make my head look like a pinhead. I prefer the volume of skirts and trousers. However it does get boring round my neck especially if there is no need for a scarf so I indulge in big necklaces, the more statement they make the better.
Few years ago I totally fell in love with Tatty Devine’s perspex wonders. I have a number of them, all nicely boxed. The other day I saw the Magpie necklace on their website with Swarovski crystal detail which would be very suitable.
Then I got bit bored and a lot of girls had TD jewelery, so I started to look for something new and exciting. Thanks to my friend’s blog I found Super Mandolini, a Greek brand that makes wonderful accessories, t-shirts and prints. I ordered the Bomber Plane and Commuters necklaces which get so much attention anywhere I go. Next on my list is the Tropic necklace, even though the prices are very attractive I will wait till £ gets stronger before ordering!
But it’s not all plastic. My other addiction are necklaces from Erica Weiner, she is a NY based designer and all her pieces are hand made from gold, silver and brass. Absolute favorite is the Moby Dick necklace, closely followed by Plane and Scissors.
Last but not least is jewelery by Zoe and Morgan. Absolutely stunning delicate rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. They also make really cool snake detail clutch bags. All very desirable.
