I ♥ Modcloth!






I don't know if many of you know this, but I work part time in a jewellery store. One of my favourite things is emailing our buying team with suggestions for new ranges and items they should buy (my latest idea is for a Pochahontis inspired range) and I get a lot of my ideas from Modcloth because they have such a great range of accessories and so many things i would love to buy if I had the money!

I always notice what accessories people are wearing and how they style themselves. For me personally, my jewellery style is minimal on earrings (I don't do big ones) but i love love love long pendant necklaces and a good stack of bangles on my wrist and if I find a ring i love I thrash it for ages. And for the most part I'm a gold girl over silver, but that rule can sometimes be broken :)

So tell me, what's your jewellery style? Who's inspiring you right now? Personally i love how Alexa Chung pulls her accessories together.

Oh and I just have to mention, this is my kind of bag:

I'm not really into the whole big hand bag thing! I like smaller bags on long chains or straps, particularly anything with engraved leather, a pretty pattern or sequins!

  3. the first one is real cute :)

    I am now making my own jewellery now, mainly necklace. I am very into shells, that's why I am collecting different kind of shells to see how they look together. I love those rusted metals too :)

I'm bummed it was just my birthday coz if I'd seen this earlier I would totally have asked for it! Ahh well, there's always christmas x

  13. I love love love Modcloth? Did you know they're having another contest and if you win you get a $100 gift certificate? I really want to enter, although I don't know if I'll win. I usually don't win contests, but who knows.

    I mainly wear jewelry from Modcloth, Topshop, and Urban Outfitters. I don't wear too much jewelry and I always wish I was the type of girl who could wear a bunch of bangles on their wrists and all these rings and everything, but I can't pull it off.

    The thing I hate about all those stores is they're so expensive! That's why I only have a few things from them.

    P.S. Can't wait for your package. And I understand why you can't send it before you go to Africa

  14. Mmm that ship necklace. =]

    Well really my inspiration for jewelry has been pirates since about 8th grade. Mainly Jack Sparrow haha. Also, just very whimsical and many blogs have influenced how I put things together.

    I love that bag! I'm a fan of little bags too, but I usually take my big Mary Poppins bag everywhere cuz I like to bring my camera wherever I go.

  15. I'm certainly no fashionista, but I feel that accessories really make an outfit. And I love them! I'm into necklaces right now, and earrings are always fun as well. I'm not very big on bracelets for me, but like them still. Love the owl pendant - LOVE it.

  21. Well I definitely know I try to avoid overkill with big earrings paired with a necklace. Sometimes that confuses me a bit. But at the moment I love long dangly earrings. Earrings went out of trend for a while, I think, but now I'm loving them again.
