Turquoise Bracelet: Take Two.

Blouse: American Apparel; Tank: gifted; Jeans: Harlow Premium; Shoes: gifted; Earrings: vintage/gifted; Bracelet: model’s own design; Ring: Olivier Soaps; Nails: Joe Fresh – Pumpkin. Photos: Christian Hapgood.

So, this is the outfit I paired with the bracelet today! I actually really love the colour tones and contrasts in the outfit. From the silver jewelry, the pumpkin nails, wine and fuchsia coloured tops to the turquoise stone the colours really popped. The simplicity of the outfit itself also really helped highlight my new creation.

The outfit fit the bill for me in that it was really simple and comfortable but, had lots of little details to fill out the look. Especially loved are the little screw-on silver earrings my nanny gifted me a few years back. They’re one of my most treasured pieces of jewelry – and really, possessions. I believe she received them when she was in her late teens, early twenties which puts them around late thirties – early forties. I’m no vintage jewelry expert though so I could be mistaken.

Also, another love is my moonstone and sterling silver ring I purchased from Olivier Soaps, at the former stall in the Saint John City Market. I’m a bit foggy on the details but the store owner mentioned to me that the sterling silver creation was made by a designer in British Colombia. This ring as has a special place in my heart because I thought I’d lost it a couple of months back. I tore around my house looking for it multiple times and also bugged a number of people to check their houses only to find it behind my dresser when I was moving – oops!

Once again this outfit demonstrates my love of chiffon and lace – and that’s probably the last time I should go on about that obsession¬† in a post for awhile!

Cheers,
Alison
