As Irene has a data limit, uploading photos puts a stopper to her monthly number of posts. But so that her readers wouldn’t be left in silence for too long, I promised to make another post on her blog.
Being the daughter of a mom who makes jewelry has it’s advantages. For instance I’m always having a big selection of earrings to match with my wardrobe. And when I figure that I need a new color in my collection, it’s possible to charm my way into getting it 😉
I figured that this time I’ll show a photo of my favorite jewelry and how I’d wear a lot of shiny bling – without at the same time looking like something that belongs to a hiphop music video 😉 And when having an eye for shiny things, this can be quite the challenge!
My mom gave me a tip when I was a teen and needed to learn how to wear makeup… And later in life I figured that this tip could be applied for most of my daily wardrobe. The advice she gave me was to either draw focus towards my eyes – or to draw it towards my lips (no smokey-black eyes and shiny red lips at the same time, young lady!). But do them at the same time and you’ll quickly see that you’ve overdone it. Yeah, so basically she nearly told me that “less is more”. But this was before the time of our so beloved Internet, so back then this phrase wasn’t world-renowned! And I guess that this advice keeps guiding me in all sorts of situations.
I guess it also could explain why I to this day don’t really fancy jewelry sets so much. Wearing matching, shiny crystals in the ears, around my neck and on the fingers – it just get too much. So what does a girl do, when she fancies some bling and still want to stay classy? 🙂 She chooses either the big earrings – or the big necklace! And either the stones in the ears, or the stones around the neck.
On the photo I am wearing my oh-so-favorite necklace with a tree (the tree of life). And the earrings are a gift from my talented mom. Green happens to be my favorite color, so as you can imagine, I wear these a lot.
But I’m sure that there are a lot of fashionistas out in the world, who could teach me a lesson or three. What do you think? Does jewelry have to match each other? Or it is okay to go all-in and sparkle like crazy from all angles?
All the best to all of you!
