I seem to go through phases when it comes to fashion. Colour phases, phases of wanting every style and shade of blazer possible…the lot. My most recent phase? Jewellery. I am obsessed with a capital O. My mind is in a constant battle with my feet to not take those steps up to the accessories department in New Look. And don’t even get me started on Accessorize…I genuinely feel like a child in a sweet shop. The shiny, pretty, dangling necklaces and dinky charm bracelets, all enticing me to touch.
I definitely think 2013 has been a breakthrough year for costume jewellery, so to speak, in high street shops. The introduction of the chunky necklace seems to have pioneered a species of spin off bracelets and matching earrings. With the mixtures of fabric and precious stones, metal and brightly coloured gems, is it any wonder I’ve become an addict?
