Statement Earrings!

Talullah Tu - Luxe Baroque Crystal Earrings

If you saw my post from earlier in the month, you’ll know that statement earrings were not something I really owned. Well thanks to the lovely guys at Talullah Tu and an ASOS gift voucher, this is no longer the case.

Shortly after I posted my wish list of statement earrings, Talullah Tu got in touch and offered to send me a pair of their gorgeous Luxe Baroque Crystal Earrings. They arrived the following day and were as beautiful in real life as they were in the photos. I simply adore them, so much so, that I wore them as a bridesmaid for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding. So thank you again Talullah Tu for making my occasion jewellery decisions a breeze.

Mulberry Lily Bags

Tiger Lily was one of my favourite characters in Disney’s Peter Pan. I was fascinated with Native Americans and loved her cure pigtails, feather headband and her refusal to give away Peter Pan’s hiding place. A heroine for my younger self and it would appear, Paula Yates.

The Collection Sale

Sale shopping, two words that normally strike fear into my heart. Crowds of bargain hungry women fully prepared to trample over anyone who gets in their way. Gorgeous clothes hung randomly on racks and frequently strewn across the floor - more akin to a jumble sale than a retail environment. But not so in the Reading branch of French Connection. Not an item out of place, friendly staff and trample free toes, a winning result! This haven from the sale starved crowds that had taken over The Oracle proved to be a wonderful retreat for me to indulge in some genteel browsing and trying on. It did however, result in some damage to my bank account and my husband’s patience.

From Ear to Ear

Earrings

One of the first ever videos I filmed for The ‘It’ Guide showcased my jewellery collection. Featuring a vast array of necklaces, rings and bracelets there was only one thing lacking – I didn’t include any earrings. Not because I don’t have my ears pierced or because I don’t own any earrings – I have more than 30 pairs of earrings and at one time had 8 piercings in my ears (teenage-angst years). It wasn’t a conscious decision not to include any earrings, more of an oversight and probably caused by my obsession with statement jewellery and my lack of anything resembling a statement earring.

Not Restrained, Just Limited

I’m a fad addict. No, I’m not getting confused with the vernacular alternative for cigarette; I simply mean I go through shopping fads – like many women I imagine. Earlier in the year it was Zara, prior to that it was all about Topshop and during the sales, I’m obsessed with French Connection.

My current fad is slightly different; gone is the needy desire to own an item from every different trend regardless of fit or style, instead I choose pieces that I think suit me and my body shape. This recent epiphany has led me back to one of my childhood shopping haunts, namely, Marks & Spencer.
