Stackable Rings

When it comes to jewellery, I am not one to love a particular ‘type’ or follow a particular ‘style’. Instead, I’m always about matching the simple and elegant dainty pieces with big bold pieces. So, it was no surprise when I fell in love with stackable rings. The best thing about them is being able to match cheap costume rings (which cost next to nothing) with pieces from places like Pandora and Angus and Coote. I love the way you can easily change your look by chopping and changing certain stones, colours (gold/silver) and thickness, by adding to or minimising certain rings in the stack.

Mismatched Patterns

This year, I rang in the new year in the fashion capital of the world, New York City. Everything about New York was incredible and literally took my breath away, from the world famous libraries to the architecture, scenery and of course the fashion. Just watching ‘typical New Yorkers’ stroll the gorgeous streets and laneways in their outfits of all different styles was such a wonderful experience. I was amazed by the amount of women (and men too) wearing pattern on pattern, mismatched patterns at that. Somehow they looked incredible, so very stylish. Surprisingly to me, mismatched suddenly became very appealing. However, in the past I have been quite conservative (this is slowly changing as I get older) in my style, so the idea of mismatching patterns is somewhat daunting. Nevertheless my mismatched fashion has started and I am slowly getting the courage to express myself through sometimes very unconservative pieces. I’m loving it and I am having a lot of fun exploring this new element to my style.
