I love Tiffany's and Pandora as much as any other girl, but I do have a soft spot for the more trendy jewellery on the high street too. These are some of the bits and pieces I've collected over the past few months that I thought I'd show you all in a haul.
While I'm not the biggest fan of the clothes, Sportsgirl is one of my favourite stores to buy jewellery from as they're always on trend. I got this really cool spike ear cuff earring as I couldn't resist the blue/purple duochrome colour of the spike. I love layering bracelets and I thought these two spike and stud ones would be a nice addition to my collection. Unfortunately, the silver spike bracelet isn't available on ASOS anymore, however, the rose gold and gold ones are on sale.
I love gemstone rings as I think they can instantly transform any simple outfit. I'm absolutely in love with my moonstone ring from eBay, which not only features a beautiful stone, but gorgeous engraving around it, which I think gives it that vintage-inspired aesthetic to it. I had been dreaming of buying Fashionology jewellery for a good couple of years before I caved in and finally bought something. For high street jewellery, they're quite pricey, but I get a lot of use out of my lovely rose quartz necklace. It's a simple long-chained necklace, which looks really nice layered with dainty necklaces that sit at the collarbones.
I guess you couldn't exactly call Twistbands jewellery, though I think they could make colourful pieces for layering bracelets on the wrists. I bought these because they're designed not to snag or break your hair, and not leave that awful ponytail crease. I can definitely say these hair ties don't hurt my head as much as regular ones, but unfortunately, they do still leave a crease. I'm the kind of girl who'll put their hair up and out of her face as soon as she's home, but I hate having to straighten out the crease it leaves. I don't think the crease is as bad regular hair ties leave, but it still doesn't 100% solve my first world girl problems! I do, however, love the pretty die dye colours they come in.
A few months ago, I gave into the above knuckle ring trend. In Australia, we're always a few months behind to catch on latest in fashion, but due to being an avid blog reader, I'd call myself an early adopter to these trends (the ones I like, anyway). When I first wore my above knuckle rings out, I got a lot of friends looking at my hands and asking why my rings weren't slid all the way down! Nevertheless, they loved them and thought they were really cool. I love the ones I got from Etsy as they're adjustable for my tiny fingers. I've especially been loving my chevron above knuckle rings as I think they're just that little bit more dainty looking.
I simply adore these two statement necklaces I bought from Myer and Market HQ. Diamonte jewellery isn't something I usually go for because I think it looks too over the top most of the time, but I bought it to wear to a friend's wedding and I ended up loving it with my dress more than I initially hoped the two would look good together. I had been searching for the perfect chunky silver chain necklace for a couple of months and I found the perfect one on Market HQ. It's not too chunky, it sits at the perfect height on my chest and isn't made of plastic. I love how something as simple as putting on statement jewellery can instantly lift an outfit.
With my love for all things oil slick/duochrome/changing pretty colours, I couldn't resist this hair cuff hair tie from Dotti. Isn't it gorgeous? As I have a lot of long necklaces, I'm trying to find nice ones that sit on the collarbones, and I fell in love with this cross one from Delilah Dust. It's simple, yet still interesting. For some reason, I always feel like it's kind of pointless to just order one thing online (my stupid logic to justify buying more things!), so I added this cute space bracelet to my cart too. It reminded me of Vivienne Westwood and lilac is one of my favourite colours.
