When our customers speak we listen, and what our customers said was that they wanted more designer quality, unique and affordable accessories – and we have certainly delivered! I am well aware that finding the right accessories to go with your dress can be pretty hard work, but fortunately we have done all the hard work for you, and we have now expanded our jewellery section at the boutique, so you really can get kitted out under one roof regardless of whether you are looking for bridesmaid accessories, bridal and wedding accessories, accessories for prom or accessories for a night out with the girls. These delectable little pieces of glamour also make perfect Christmas presents, and although Christmas is a couple of months away, there’s no harm in being organised! Below are my favourite picks of our new jewellery range, for more, have a little peek at the accessories section on our website.
My jaw definitely dropped when I saw this utterly gorgeous necklace, and it’s probably my own personal favourite of all the statement necklaces. The trick is with statement necklaces is to let the necklace do all the talking, and what I’m really getting at is to keep everything else very simple with your outfit. Keep the rest of your jewellery simple, in particular the earrings (I find that sparkly stud earrings are the perfect accompaniment to this necklace). Don’t ever worry that your outfit may be too simple, the statement necklace will change your outfit from plain to show stopping.
If you are concerned that a statement necklace may be too uncomfortable to wear due to weight, think again. This particular necklace is made out of long silver coloured chains and is dotted with twinkly crystals and is very lightweight, so you can feel comfortable whilst still looking utterly fabulous! This necklace stands out particularly well against a plain black dress, or if you are feeling particularly cheeky on holiday, over your favourite bikini! When storing this necklace, use a padded hanger to minimise tangling.
Vintage style jewellery
The Great Gatsby film created a huge demand for vintage style accessories. The key things to remember when choosing your vintage style accessories is to keep them glitzy, bold and opulent. This vintage style black lace choker is the epitome of vintage style with it’s starburst flowers and black jet glass beads. This choker necklace looks great with a dress with a low, round neckline, a square neckline, or my personal favourite style of dress to wear with a choker, the strapless dress. With this choker keep the dress fairly simple and match the choker with a matching cuff bracelet and some simple matching black earrings.
This vintage style cuff bracelet (left) is simply beautiful with it’s intricate design and soft pink colours. This cuff bracelet is delicate and is an absolute must if you are wearing a dress or top with 3/4 sleeves. This particular bracelet is brilliant if you have tiny wrists due to the fact it opens and closes on a gentle clasp, so it can fit any size!
Of course, no vintage style outfit is complete until you have your glitzy hair accessories in. These little bits of sparkle (pictured right) nestle subtly in your hair to give your crowning glory a bit of glamour. These look very sophisticated if you are wearing an updo such as a bun or chignon. The comb simply slots into your updo and secures into place, so you don’t have to worry about losing these little gems. If you are wearing your hair down, you can still use a hair comb, but it may need a few extras to hold it in position, kirby grips are great if you want a little extra security, but make sure you purchase clips which are the same colour as your hair and pop them in deeply so they remain hidden.
