Costume Jewellery - sharing my obsession

I don't know about you but I'm never going to suit the term "shoe or handbag" girl.  I just love too many forms of fashion to be restricted to those two things and I think theres so much choice out there now that you should make the most of it!!  One thing I can definitely hold my hands up and say im OBSESSED with is costume jewellery, especially rings.  You can get unique and reasonably priced costume jewellery almost anywhere nowdays, here a few of my recent purchases:

Dorothy Perkins £8.50
Kenneth Jay Lane @ £45
Accessorize £8
(Excuse my nails in the last one, they are due a touch up)!

Statement bracelets and necklaces are easily found on the highstreet now as well, I spotted this one in the Swarovski store this week and have put it to the top of my wish list, its a special design by Christopher Kane and perfect for so many outfits:
Swarovski around £300

I hope these few examples help you all with inspiration and while making your statement its always good to remember a famous quote by Dita Von Teese that I read recently:  'I'd rather have something big and fake, than small and real.'



  1. Love the accessorize ring.

  2. This is a fantastic website, could you be interested in going through an interview concerning just how you made it? You can visit my site.
