between me and you
here’s my silver love affair.
Taking a trip down memory lane, secondary school to be exact, those times I was obsessed with silver jewellery. The shine, little details, workable in most outfits and did I mention the shine? Never one to follow the trends, I did my own thing, regularly seen wearing a believe necklace, small studs and a kara. A signature look, feeling naked without, devastated when the necklace broke and kara became too small. Reliving the happier moments, jewellerybox* gave me the opportunity to rekindle my love of silver. Arriving a day before my travels to Italy, these dainty pieces became my holiday style. Travelling to hot climates yet refusing to compromise on style, the jewellerybox pieces were lightweight, comfortable and looked effortlessly chic. Complimenting any outfit I chose to pair it with, from streetwear to holiday florals.
I particularly adored the minimalist styling of the bow ring, sitting comfortable on my finger, almost forgetting that I’m wearing it. It’s all in the details, not your average ring, effortlessly shining with an extraordinary flair. Bracelet of dreams, heart on my sleeve with an accompanying pink crystal ball. Easily fastened, the strong snake bracelet will not break easily. Moving onto my birthstone, representing the month of October, the balancing scales. The opal gemstone earrings will add a subtle shine to your outfit. For daily wear, tie your hair into a low ponytail, add some lipgloss and look put together in minutes. For more formal occasions, switch the lipgloss for a bold red lip and a classic bun.
Oh, how times have changed. Currently, obsessed with everything gold, a colour I once ignored, adamant I would never adore. Getting more intuned with my culture, the fashion aspect to be precise, I couldn’t resist the sparkle of the jewellery. Scrolling through my Instagram feed gold layered necklaces were all that I could see. Wandering through shops, different variations of gold were in circulation. I could no longer ignore this trend, I was hooked and my admiration began. But hold up, wait, silver never had a say. Feeling neglected, overlooked, sitting in second place, it was time to switch it up, this is my silver love affair.
