Accessories: What Makes Us, Us
Accessories more often than not have a strong intrinsic value to the person. Personally I have three, one is a necklace my aunt gave me, another is a tiffany pearl necklace I bought in New York on my 21st Birthday and the last is a vintage ring I bought when I was going through a sad breakup.
Each piece holds some meaning, tells a little story and feel so deeply a part of me that if I lost them I would feel utterly horrible.
So I thought I would dedicate this post, after a sweet incentive from the lovely team over at 2Threads.com, to:
The first piece I thought of was Vada’s mood ring from My Girl, I still remember balling my eyes out when I saw this as a kid, and insisting my parents buy me an exact copy.
I have a guilty pleasure which my best friend constantly mocks me about, The Wedding Singer, if it’s raining I’ll watch it, if it’s been a bad day at work I’ll watch it. I watch it a lot. The opening credits are forever forged into anyone who has lived with me is brain. But one detail I simply adore is that throughout the entire film Drew Barrymore’s character only wears one piece of jewellery.
I would wear this darling thing with anything, from my lovely Burberry navy trenchcoat to my big fluffy Topshop jumper, because that is the special thing about good, well crafted and beautiful jewellery.
