  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Mum's the Word

    Now a little word of warning before you go and spend this month's wages....it's Mothering Sunday on the 14th March. So keep something aside to buy her something special. Jewellery always makes a great Mother's Day gift - and it lasts longer than flowers!

    Here are some of my top picks for the perfect gift for your Mum:

    This Cath Kidston locket with a classic rosebud print is so easy to wear, and you can put a photograph into it too to add a personal touch. The whole of our Cath Kidston range is great for mums young and old alike, and the prices start at just ?7.50.

    Alex Monroe is another brand that appeals all ages. His new "The Gardener" collection is perfect for any mum who likes to while away the hours in the garden. This garden tag necklace has little silver tags with "Sweetpea", "Forget me Not" and "With Love" on them. The gold tag has a tiny silver ant resting on it. Who couldn't love such a dainty, detailed necklace?

    The message on this Dogeared necklace says it all: "You know who you are, you know what really matters, and you are always there to help me put things into perspective! Wear your necklace as a reminder that I LOVE YOU!".? And it has a super cute little anchor on it too!

    These Lulu Guiness rosebud earrings are another favourite of mine - they're so pretty and easy to wear. They're from Lulu's 'Life is a Bed of Roses' collection for spring, inspired by her love of flowers and East London's famous Columbia Road flower market.
