I've recently added a few accessory goodies to my collection and I thought I'd share them with you guys! I don't consider myself a fashionista by any means, but I do love it when I get compliments on my jewellery, because I feel that it suggests that I'm keeping up with the trends - at least somewhat!
Since I'm working as an administrative assistant now, it's difficult to show your creativity and uniqueness in your wardrobe and makeup choices. So I find it wonderful to express myself with color and accessory choices.
*Sorry for the blurry photos! I took these pictures with my camera phone and it's a little craptacular...*
I stumbled across this beauty in Sears, and it was 50% off!! As soon as it caught my gaze, I knew this baby was coming home with me. I picked it up for a mere $6, which is quite the bargain. The band is stretchy which is fantastic for my large fingers. I can comfortably wear this on the middle finger of my right hand (which tends to be slightly larger than my left hand). It hails from the brand Fabulous Fakes.
My next, and most exciting purchase, was a bit of a splurge, especially for me. I'm not one to buy expensive jewellery... ever. But these caught my eye in Sears the other day, and stayed in the back of my mind all day. Over night, I realized that they had to come home with me and be a part of my collection. They are so 'me' that I knew that despite the price, they would be staple items that I'd wear very frequently. They're Guess Double Charm Strawberry Heart earrings. The front of the studs are adorned with a dangling purple jewelled heart charm. The earring back has a long chain hanging from it, with a rhinestone studded strawberry. The strawberries hang quite low - touching my collarbone on occasion, but I still love them. They are a little weighty, but nothing too uncomfortable. If I knew that I could find a similar accessory for cheaper, I would've picked it up, but I've never seen anything like this in stores... ever. And even my husband adores them and approves of them - he couldn't stop looking at them and telling me how awesome they were. Score.
|Like, who wears awesome earrings like this!?|
Definitely a conversation piece...
The last purchase was from The Bay, from a brand called Amor. I used my birthday money to pick up this sterling silver 925 bracelet. It's plated with rhodium, and consists of interlinking hearts. For my wrist, its not quite a 'tight fit' but it's cutting it close. It still twists easily around my wrist, but I cannot just slip it on. I love it. So delicate, yet a statement piece on its own.
And so those are my newest additions to my collection! What do you guys think!? Are there more pieces I should check out? What accessories are you rocking?
