Christmas presents!

xmas presents Collage
Xmas is gone already, but I didn’t have time to show you two of the presents I received :)… two pairs of cool stylish earrings! I actually choose them hihihihih – as soon as I saw those earrings I desperatly wanted them.
They are both created by an Italian artist called “Annalisa di Lonardo”, and my sister bought them in a lovely xmas market in town.
One is a pair of circular stud earrings in brass and fimo clay. I choose this colour because I thought that it was easy to wear with brown, pink, yellowish outfits, but also with jeans.
The other pair is composed by triangular earrings – three overlapping layers, on of a silver plated triangle and the other two are made of fabric, one in black and one in white.
This geometric shape looks really cool on simple shirts to give a stylish touch.
I love them… what do you think?
C u soon :)

P.S.: Btw the xmas market was called Manufacta

How to choose a necklace?!

I am sorry I haven’t been posting for a long time, but as for probably most of you Xmas time is really busy – soon I’ll post some of the presents I found under the tree LOL

Since I am still working on my metal pendant, today I’d like to focus on necklaces, various types and how to choose one to match your outfit.

As you can see in my polyvore collection http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/collection?id=3234489
there are soooo many kind of necklaces.
We can classify them by adornment type or by length.
There are cross necklaces (the ones carrying a Christian cross), diamond, pearl necklaces, with pendant (beaded or not) and the famous Rivière one which usually has a single strand of gemstones of the same general size and cut.
Then by length we can choose among a Choker, which usually sits high on the neck with its 35 cm to 41 cm length; a matinee which is usually longer (between 56 cm and 58 cm; a princess necklace, that is longer than a choker, but usually shorter than a matinee. Then there are the really long ones like the opera necklace, the rope and the lariat (more then 75 cm long).

But how to wear them?!
Well, I think that fashion doesn’t really require a rule to choose a necklace, what I usually do is try to mix the necklace with the outfit to create something interesting and original, for example I love funny pendants so I might wear one for a smart occasion just to play down a serious outfit – but if I am very elegant for a night out, I might decide to use pearls which are always chic. I love pearls and I might us them also to give a smart touch to a more casual outfit… what do you think?!
how do you choose your necklace?
I’ll wait for your suggestions :)
C u soon
