I love accessories of every kind - jewelry, bags, hats, shoes, scarves - all of them! I believe that the right accessory has the power to transform an outfit and I am never not wearing something.
I like to try different styles and trends but at the moment I am tending to wear thin gold necklaces with bolder statement earrings and always a few rings. In the evenings I tend to ramp up the sparkle - especially where earrings are concerned but that isn't to say I wouldn't wear a statement earring in the day time! Sometimes I will leave a gold necklace on for a few days before changing it for another one and others days I will layer them up - anything goes at the moment.
Stella & Dot have some stunning jewellry in at the moment - that is perfect for life, not just Christmas - although it is always good to sparkle a bit more around the festive period, plus all of these pieces would make excellent gifts.
These earrings are incredible, they are so pretty and despite being on the large side are light and comfortable. Also because they contain different colours they go with everything. I've styled them with an evening dress but I will also be wearing them with a simple t-shirt and jeans or a plain jumper dress.
This charm necklace is so pretty - it sits perfectly between subtle and statement and is so versatile. I can imagine wearing it on a beach with a beach dress and suntan.
I love a clutch bag (and have quite a collection). If I am going to a party or wedding I nearly always take a clutch. I have a thing for metallic bags (and shoes) - mainly because they go with pretty much everything. This pewter sequin one is great because it is the perfect neutral metallic because it goes with both gold and silver and will work equally well for summer and winter events. *Unfortunately my clutch has sold out but there is a similar one here or here.
I'm also a big fan of a statment ring and this adjustable backed one is awesome - it reminds me of an exploding firework and I love it.
As statement clutches go this one definitely has the 'wow factor' - it is so fun, shiny and rose gold! I'm wearing it with a delicate personalised wishing bracelet and gold cuff - both of which would make ideal, very special gifts.
Personalisation is a great way to make a gift extra special - and on the Stella & Dot site is very easy to do.
My favourite piece from my Stella & Dot Edit is my gold Z Initial necklace which I haven't taken off since I received it. I love layering it up with other gold chains or just wearing it on its own, it seems to sit perfectly in between my collar bones and feels (and looks) (and is) so special.
