Save The Last Pinker x Fashion Addict Next Door: Week 2

Image

My inspiration for this week’s blog post is holographic accessories. It’s just so much fun – what’s not to love? It’s also surprisingly versatile and looks fab with any metal. Any item that adds a bit of fun and excitement to an outfit is OK by me.

I chose a black dress and shoes for so many reasons; 1) It’s black, enough said. 2) They still have a little something subtle going on. 3) How better to show off your accessories? But seriously, I love everything black. Monochrome is always my go-to look, and you always get so much wear out of pieces that are black or white because you can style them so many different ways without looking like you wear the same thing all the time. Black means longevity. You WILL get your money’s worth when it comes to anything black.

I’m sure you’re thinking, “just get to the bit about that incredible piece of jewellery already!”

Ok ok, I give in. Meet the ‘Large Moon Drop Ring’ by Amber Sceats. Incredible, huh? This piece is the most perfect cocktail ring I’ve ever seen. Silver is usually my metal of choice, so straight away it ticks that box for me, because I know it will go with my other jewellery. For those of you who normally wear gold, you’re lucky! Why? Because this is the kind of ring that commands your attention, therefore you can put your gold jewellery to bed for the night and take your incredible Amber Sceats cocktail ring for a spin instead. The navy blue colour of the rough-cut druzy crystal is mesmerizing – perfect for an evening look. It’s also adjustable, which is extremely convenient for those of us who have fingers that seem to sporadically change sizes. The ‘Large Moon Drop Ring’ by Amber Sceats is an absolute showstopper and doesn’t need to be supported by any other pieces. It was made to stand alone.

OOTD: Monochrome Addict.

This dress by Glassons is so easy to dress up and down. To dress it up, add a red lip and some killer heels.

Image

The versatility of my holographic Hello Parry clutch is surprising; it literally goes with everything and I use it so often. It fits all my essentials and still has room to spare; what more could a girl want! I know it’s still going to look great going into Autumn/Winter 2014 too.

My Karen Walker ‘Super Duper Strength’ sunglasses have been my favourite pair for over a year now. The style and shape has been so easy to wear and I always feel super stylish in them. I know there are a lot of dupes around of this style now, but in my opinion, you can’t beat the original!

Image

Let’s not forget about the shoes. Every woman’s obsession. OK, that may be a slight generalisation, but lets face it… most of us really enjoy a good pair of shoes! I am personally loving the platform/wedge trend because I have a serious case of princess feet, and stilettos just don’t do it for me, from a comfort perspective. I was overjoyed when I spotted these babies in Wittner. They have a comfortable incline, the zipper adds some serious attitude/interest, and the peep toe style is very in for the coming Autumn/Winter season. What’s not to love!

I love these pieces together. The lime top goes so well with the holographic clutch and heels with tread.

ImageImage

I wear my Mika Sandals from Sportsgirl to death. They’re endlessly comfortable for synthetic shoes. I also love the tread on the bottom that gives them just the right amount of attitude!

Image

My favourite thing about my lime Glassons top is the back. It’s so simple from the front, and the detail on the back absolutely makes it in my opinion.

ImageImage

What else can I say about this Hello Parry holographic clutch that it doesn’t say for itself? It is just fabulous. I love its size too – it holds all my essentials, plus more. It goes with absolutely everything and actually looks awesome with gold accessories.

My latest purchase: Kookai rose gold statement ring

20121226-224959.jpg

This gorgeous ring is actually elasticated, so it would fit many different ring sizes. I wear a 6.5 on my middle finger, and it would fit much larger. It’s so beautiful and intricate, I couldn’t resist. ESPECIALLY when it was HALF PRICE! Yes, you heard me (or read me…?) correctly. The ring was $30 – I got it for the bargain price of $15 today. Yay for sales!

I first became a fan of Lotus Mendes when I came across a stall at my local shopping centre. I was blown away by the reasonable prices, the stunning pieces, and the super friendly designer, Victoria. It really was love at first sight.

Victoria and her incredible designs have returned to my local shopping centre, and I just couldn’t help myself… I picked up this gorgeous peace sign ring (made of sterling silver) for $69!
