  • Be Bold: Statement Necklaces for stunning Summer ensembles

    Want to be bold with your look this Summer? A chunky statement necklace can brighten up the drabbest of outfits. Even if you're wearing nothing but a big sack out and about; adding a collar neck piece and a slash of red lipstick will make it look like you're wearing couture. ?Here's a few of our favourite pieces from our store.

    Disney Couture Snow White Necklace

    Beautiful, intricate and unique, this Disney Couture Snow White Seven Dwarves Necklace (?31.49)?combines draping?multi chains, mini skulls, and crystal charms - providing you with all the style you need to dazzle a fairytale prince. The asymmetric design is a nice touch too, providing it with a stylish draping collar effect . ?We'd team this with a black dress, lots of eyeliner and pink cheeks for that true Snow White look. Poison apples and evil stepmothers are optional.

    The new Fiona Paxton collection?sees her taking influences from traditional African patterns and Art Deco designs. ?Her Shiko Collar in Gunmetal and Fuchsia?(?175.00)?is shot through with flashes of stunning neon stitching and hot pink?Swarovski crystals. This would look amazing set against a vibrant yellow t-shirt, skinny jeans and some acid bright stiletto heels.

    Bunting necklaces appear to be all the rage at the moment. ?And with the country in the grip of Olympic fever, who can blame you if you feel like getting a little bit patriotic with your neckware? ?If you're looking for something which is simple, yet effective, House of Harlow's Gold Plated Triangle Collar Necklace?(?49.95)?packs a real fashion punch. Slip this over a crisp white blouse for a clean, sharp, look.

    Who doesn't love a cute little owl? Especially when it's as attractive as this?Owl necklace from Wildfox?(?79.95).?This little fella looks like a real hoot (get it?) We love the crystal accents on the wings, as well as the look of mild surprise on the owl's face.

    Often imitated, but never bettered, this Tatty Devine Dinosaur Necklace (?114.00)?is a true original. Inspired by the dinosaur skeletons featured in the Natural History Museum, this Jurassic charmer is made up of 50 individual bones. These are all of jointed to each other, providing it with plenty of wonderfully jiggly movement. This is a necklace which makes a real impact - throw it over anything and everything for that WOW! effect.

  • Preview: Disney Couture Icon Collection

    Happy New Year! I hope you all had a good break. We're back in the office now and are really looking forwards to the SS12 season. Collections should start arriving within the month and we can't wait.

    I'll be giving you previews of some of the new season styles, starting today with a peek at the newest Disney Couture jewellery line - the 'Icon' collection. As the title suggests, it features some of Disney's most loved characters to create iconic, highly collectable pieces of jewellery. Here's a preview to whet your appetite:

    What do you think of the new pieces? I really like the idea of the stacking rings and bangles that create a Disney scene when worn together.

  • Guest Post: Skullduggery from Big Fashionista

    Today we have a guest blog post from Cosmopolitan Blog Award nominated Big Fashionista (vote for her blog in the Cosmo Blog Awards here, under the Sex and Relationships category).

    Take a close look at me (Oh god, not that close)

    What do you see?

    (Actually don’t answer that, my ego is fragile and can’t take a beating at the moment).

    Do you see the Butler & Wilson skull studs nestling in my ears?

    Look at my finger, There may be a Disney Couture skull ring manically grinning away,

    Or maybe a Leandra Holder hand carved skull? bracelet on my wrist. (there isn’t yet, but hopefully Santa will be kind)

    Leandra Holder Hand Carved Skulls Charm Bracelet

    Leandra

     

    Now obviously I don’t wear all of these at once, ?I like the idea that you can take a quick glance and just see me. But when you take a longer look you can see the skulls which are discreetly placed. (most of the time anyway).

    I adore Skull jewellery. Now I’m no death metal rock chick in leather and lace (sorry for ruining that fantasy) I’m ?just your run of the mill school run mum, (with three tattoos). What I do have is ?a streak of rebellion that I love to indulge through my accessories. I may be wearing jeans, with my hair scraped back in a lazy ponytail but in my ears are Butler & Wilson skulls and watch out as I probably have an attitude to match.

    Skulls can make a fantastic contrast, giving a hard edge to a soft outfit or they can add the finishing touch to an Autumn ensemble.

    Skulls aren’t just for Halloween, they work all year round.

    How do you wear yours?

  • Accessories - What's your Style Profile?

    Guest PostWhatever your personal style, or what you have to wear on a day-to-day basis, one of the best ways to express who you are is through your accessories. There are so many diverse looks to experiment with within the realm of accessories that the possibilities can be endless no matter what you wear. Below are just a few of the different styles that can be spotted today.

    Kooky

    Kooky girls are always on the lookout for the weird and wonderful in accessories: unexpected objects as pendants, piles of mismatching bracelets, charms and strange shapes and materials. Sometimes it's about pieces that have other meanings, jewellery that can represent part of their personality or an individual interest. And sometimes it's just about finding something gorgeous to wear that bucks a trend or differs from the norm.

    Disney Couture Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Button Charm Necklace, ?42.95

    Disney

    Kooky girls will love : Disney Couture, Lenora Dame, Tatty Devine

    Classic

    Classic girls have a chic, neat sense of style that works anytime and anywhere. Decoration is kept to a minimum - no stacked chains or jangling bracelets need apply - but with a level of taste that is timeless and undeniable. The classic ideal is to invest in beautiful accessories that will last a lifetime; special pieces in precious metals that can be passed down the generations and will never go out of style.

    Alex Monroe 22kt Gold Plated Baby Twig Horseshoe Necklace, ?84.95

    Alex

    Classic girls will love: Alex Monroe, Dyrberg Kern, Catherine Weitzman

    Vintage

    Vintage girls have one eye on the past and the other on the fashion scene. Taking inspiration from decades gone before, they combine thrift finds and family heirlooms with looks which are constantly being recreated for the current season. From 1940s florals to the retro glam of the 50s and 60s, vintage lovers will always have a look to suit their favourite era at the same time as keeping up to date with modern trends.

    Kirstin Ash Blue Birdie Bow Necklace, ?69.95

    Kirstin

    Vintage girls will love: Cath Kidston, Kirstin Ash, Lulu Guinness

    Glamorous

    Glamorous girls love to rock the Hollywood red-carpet look of high-end bling. Nothing can have too much sparkle and Glamorous girls have the ability to dress up any outfit instantly with gorgeous twinkly and colourful accessories. Chandelier earrings and crystals galore are essentials in the glamorous jewellery box, to make sure an outfit is never less than completely fabulous.

    Kenneth Jay Lane Crystal Feather Cuff in Gunmetal, ?360

    Kenneth

    Glamorous girls will love: Kenneth Jay Lane, Butler and Wilson, Karen Millen

    Statement

    Statement girls love to let their jewellery to speak for itself and will always use their accessories as the main focus of an outfit. Big shapes, tribal influences and high colour are the order of the day and the look carries seamlessly through from day to night. Statement girls know that bold accessories will always be the quickest and most effective way to update any outfit.

    Fiona Paxton Surat Jewelled Necklace in Silver, ?175

    Statement girls will love: Fiona Paxton, Angie Gooderham, Lola Rose

  • Who doesn’t love fairies?

    Guest PostGuest Post by Shantal Martin

    ?I am like Tinkerbell, I need applause to live? Rachel Berry - Glee

    I think Rachel was on to something; or perhaps it’s just the fact that the Disney Couture Limited Tinkerbell Fairy Charm Necklace is exceptionally well crafted and beautiful in its own right? Maybe it helps that when you wear this piece of jewellery the charms make the sound of little bouts of applause with any sort of movement. In the tale of Peter Pan, there was always that little fairy, Tinkerbell was her name. She was stubborn, jealous and protective. She personified all the traits that each and every one of us experience at one time or the other. She was more than likely the most relatable character Disney has ever thought of; making her such a huge marketing tool not to mention she is a fairy. Who doesn’t love fairies?

    The charms on this necklace are the pan pipes that were played by Peter. These pipes brought musical harmonies and happiness, there is obviously the charm for Tinkerbell and a charm of a slipper. These 3 charms represent much of the story. This story that has instilled joy into the hearts of many, young and old.

    This charm necklace would be perfect for younger persons or persons young at heart.

  • Jewellery with a Sweet Tooth

    Guest PostGuest post by Lucy Vanilla.

    Anyone who knows me knows that I love baking. I am more than happy to spend hours on end in my tiny little kitchen pouring over some new recipe I've just found and had to try out straight away. I could blame my Mother for this obsession (she had me reciting the methods and measurements for Victoria Sponge at the age of three), but I think recently it is more to do with pairing it with my love for blogging. I am the resident blogger behind the Ollie & Nic blog, spending at least three or four hours of my working week writing about handbags which has somewhat ignited a passion in me for all things visually delectable. I started up the Lucy Vanilla blog a few weeks ago as a more personal outpouring for some of these desirables, including my home-made sweet treats (so I could capture them before they meet their destiny with a hungry mouth!) and everything else alongside.

    Tatty Devine Ice Cream Sundae Brooch, ?33

    Tatty

    My love for baking seems to be slowly creeping into other areas of my life too. I've been bitten by the cupcake bug not only in my kitchen, but in my wardrobe too. For me, there's nothing more coveted than a cute piece of jewellery that makes everyone coo and ask "where did you get that?!" - which is exactly what happened when I wore my new Tatty Devine Ice Cream Sundae brooch to work last week. It has the perfect combination of brightening up an otherwise-boring blazer lapel and looking good enough to eat at the same time (part of me wishes I had bought the Ice Lolly as they are slightly more forgiveable to eat on a regular basis).

    Lenora Dame Blue Vintage Gingham Decoupage Bangle, ?29.95

    Lenora

    It doesn't stop there. I am now yearning after this Lenora Dame Bangle to add to the collection. The Gingham reminds me of tea parties and it will look fabulous with a cotton summer dress at a picnic - although in my head I know I'm more likely to be eating an M&S sandwich out of carrier bag whilst shooing away pigeons in Victoria Park than attending a glamorous picnic!

    Disney Couture Alice in Wonderland Stacked Teacups Ring, ?26.95

    Disney

    Last on my wish list is this quirky ring by Disney Couture. I recently purchased the keyhole earrings from the same collection which I love so, of course, I need something else to match them to. The teacup stack ring rather resembles my teacup cupboard (yes, I have one of those) and it gives me a lovely nostalgic feeling of ladies 'what lunch'. The only thing is, if I get this, that will start a whole new ball rolling on teacup themed accessories? and with all my money spent on cake ingredients, that's another obsession I can't afford!

  • New Tom Binns for Disney Couture Pieces Just In

    We've just had a delivery from the Tom Binns for Disney Couture collection. They're the Red Queen themed pieces that for us are some of the most outstanding pieces in the Alice in Wonderland collection. Tom Binns tells us in this video that the Red Queen was one of his favourite characters from the film because she was a "dark" character. They feature lots of red resin hearts mixed with twisted chains and Binns' signature safety pins. The hearts appear to smother whatever is underneath them. Stunning.

  • Curiouser and Curiouser...Alice in Wonderland Jewellery Arrives

    Any devoted Tim Burton/Johnny Depp/Alice in Wonderland fan will be hugely excited by the release of the new Alice in Wonderland film next month. Just LOOK at the trailer! Doesn't it look amazing?

    Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton

    Alice

    The release of the new film seems to have created a bit of a stir in the fashion world, which has resulted in a flurry of Alice-themed products to coincide with the movie release.? Some products are truly fabulous - such as Stella McCartney's Wonderland-themed bracelet and necklace. Some products, well...Alice in Wonderland themed nail polish and eyeshadow? How can a nail polish be Alice in Wonderland themed? Is Johnny Depp going to come and apply it for me? Do white rabbits leap out of the eyeshadow pallete each time I open it?

    Being big fans of all-things-Alice ourselves, we started a hunt for our favourite pieces for the site. We wanted to find some inspired pieces that really embodied the story and were 100% Wonderland. Standing head and shoulders above anything else we saw was the new Tom Binns for Disney Couture collection and the Disney Couture Alice in Wonderland collection.

    Council of Fashion Designers of America winner Tom Binns has worked his unique flair on the Tom Binns for Disney Couture collection, which features designs influenced by the story's principal characters including Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, the White Queen and the White Rabbit. The collection incorporates elements such as photo inlay, lace accents and Swarovski crystals. This collection is currently on pre-order for delivery at the end of Feb.

    One of our favourites is the Mad Hatter wrap bracelet - a piece with a plethora of Alice themed charms that abounds with detail:

    Mad

    Another favourite has to be the Tea Party bracelet - a substantial charm bracelet crammed with goodies including tea cups, kettles, plates, crackers, cup cakes, 'eat me' cookies, and pocket watches with enamelled accents.

    Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Bracelet by Tom Binns

    Alice

    The Disney Couture Alice in Wonderland collection has taken inspiration from some of the most iconic themes such as the 'Drink Me' bottle and the Red Queen to create a quirky, detailed and affordable collection.

    Who couldn't love the 'Drink Me' bottle necklace? The cork actually comes out of the bottle which is a great bit of detail. Priced at just ?29.95, it's a snip.

    Another fabulously detailed piece is the 'Off with their heads' Red Queen necklace - it has a brooch clasp at the back of the pendant allowing you to position it and drape the chain.
