Some days you want to be over the top. Over-dressed. Too much. When this mood hits me, I turn it on. Nails. Lashes. Lips. Brows. Everything.
It is sometimes the littlest of things that make the largest impression. APM Monaco currently has my heart. Collection after collection of the cutest little rings of bling. Bracelets of desire. Designed and influenced by two of my favourite holiday places, Monaco and the South of France.
These baubles inspire my personal style. My passion and energy. With this little black jersey dress from Alexander Wang, I can put little effort into this look for maximum effect. Brazilian beauty and fashion influencer, Camila Coelho, shared this line with her followers and I found it at Colton’s.
When I want a more feminine look to go with my new 3.1 Phillip Lim Hayett Lug‘s, I slide on a bunch of VIST pearls for that extra pop. Rings and bracelets circling my body. Like the rings of Saturn. Modern elegance. Classic with a modern twist. The eyes look into my mind’s eye. Deeply.
The jewelry is free of nickel and lead. I like that. Clean. Sparkling. The world’s obsession with decoration our bodies is as old as the ancient Greeks who believed diamonds were tears of the gods. The Romans believed them to be splinters of falling stars.
Instinct. Attraction. I gravitate towards shiny objects. So pretty.
