Like Louise

30 May


Everyone has their favourite style icon of the silver screen, be it Audrey Hepburn or Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Greta Garbo but my personal favourite is Louise Brooks. I love the styles of the ’20s and I think she looked incredible in her silks and pearls. She seemed to be rarely without a long string of pearls draped around her neck and could often be seen adorned with glistening, ornate gems. She was the perfect combination of edgy and elegant.

Showy Owl

25 May

In the spirit of putting off my studies for a few minutes longer, I began browsing the internet for owly goodies. I love owls and I think they translate extremely well into arty designs – be it a brooch, or a cushion or THIS SPECTACULAR SPARKLY OWL CLUTCH! When it popped up on my screen, my eyes widened, I leaned forwards on the edge of my seat and then, I looked at the price tag. £3,395. Ouch. It genuinely hurt.

So, until I find myself an extremely highly paid job or a winning lottery ticket or a magic lamp, I shall have to satisfy my Bejewelled Owl cravings with these, still rather special, earrings from TopShop.

1. Owl Crystal Embedded Clutch, Judith Leiber. £3,995.

2. Enamel Owl Stud Pack, Topshop. £6.
