How utterly divine are these pieces! I have a real obsession for all things oversized, especially with jewellery. Now I know i will never be able to afford any of these but i like to look at them every now and again to get some sort of inspiration. im crap at buying jewellery because i never know what i really want and whether certain styles suit me or not. i always end up buying little pendant necklaces or rosarys..which i have a major weak spot for too, but they just get so boring. the perfect bib necklace can instantly change an outfit and give that lbd a new, refreshed look.
I still love the ysl rings. I don't think i'll ever stop wanting one...
...i just love how the gold drips over the gems on some of them..stunning! i would literally wear them all at the same time lol

My Buys
cross necklace; Topshop. chunky chain necklace; New Look. amber gem multi-chain necklace; asos. silver chain cuff; New Look. silver bracelet; New Look. rings; both Topshop

So here are some of my buys this past month. Every shop i go in there seems to be a 2 for 1 of course i take full advantage of that! Arguably not as nice as the first set (OK of course not as nice as the designer ones) but they're a lot nicer on my bank balance :)

These are some of the jewellery that i wear pretty much everyday. I don't mind wearing gold and silver together, i know its breaking the rules..but who cares. However the one thing i cant stand is..say if im wearing all silver jewellery i cannot have the hardware on either my bag or shoes gold and vise versa. haha stupid i know!
I get most of my jewellery from either thrift stores or the good old high street.
I'm on the lookout for an oversized masculine watch..preferably gold and im desperately searching for a body harness. I know they're supposed to be some in h&m but ive never come across them, and the ones on asos are like £200 pfft!! come on topshop, catch up with the rest of europe! I had every intention of d.i.y-ing one myself..i sat there ready with some old chains and a pair of pliers and stared at it for about 10 mins until i realised i had NO clue what i was doing haha!

oh and fyi...dont google picture body harness or body chains lol. unless you dont mind a bit of pop-up porn!


  1. What a great post! Those rings are amazing, if only we had a disposable income, right? (sigh) But you have a great collection of jewelry yourself! I have to admit I have never heard of body harnesses! Very cool : )

  2. You have a pretty amazing taste in jewelry. My favorites from this post are the spikey mcqueen bracelet, the 4th ysl ring, and the amber asos necklace.
