How to wear costume jewellery

For some, jewelry is a very personal thing — gifts from your significant other, family gifts, purchases to mark important occasions — it can also be a reflection of your personal style. Some people can't go out of the house a necklace; some women prefer an armful of bangles while for others simple studs will do the trick. No matter what your preference is, bits of accessories are all about adding joy to your look — so don't stress, have fun with it. P.S.- All these necklaces are creations of Gypzy Girl By Mickey!

There are so many directions you can go when it comes to necklaces, from subtle (a simple gold chain or a strand of pearls) to bold (a wide bib or colorful beads).

Consider the vibe you are going for. Add color to your party outfit with a simple and a weightless fabric neck piece.

You don't want to be the elegant, perfect barbie doll all the time! Be a tomboy for a day by wearing coloured pants and striped t-shirts with a reggae styled neck piece just like this one.

I have a lot of friends who want to keep it modest, a mix of necklaces in varied shapes and lengths can look great on you girls. This type of lace necklaces would really add class and elegance to your outfits.

Long skirts in vibrant colours are in again. Team up yours with an unusual pearl neck piece just like the one I made the other day.

Wear colorful beads with a dash of silver or gold (or any other metal coloured beads) for a boho feel.

Don't have an idea of what to wear for a lil' ones b'day party? Sport pearls or white beads to create a soft and a soothing look.

Confessions of a jewellery junkie!!

Confessions of a jewellery junkie!! I know the title is such a cliche. Thousands of people would've written articles on this particular subject but trust me there's no better title for this blog post.

I have felt love at first sight many times, with jewellery. My heart literally skips a beat, my palms get super sweaty when I come across delicate crystals, a sexy chain or a dazzling pearl. I just have to have it. And once the I get my hands on them I never look back. I start flying without wings. 

So my dearest girls this is the story of my own costume jewellery collection I treasure so much and I can't do without. 

Let me start with my earrings, as some of you all know I'm kind of allergic to metal, and when it comes to earrings I only wear clip ons. I don't have a piercing either. I bought all these gorgeous babies on line when I was working abroad. I can't emphasize how much they have helped me to make a real fashion statement!

 When I was taking these picz I noticed that I don't even get to wear all the necklaces I have. Sometimes I'm just lazy to pick one and wear in the morning when I go to work but I must admit that I just love having them, it's a lil' ego boost! 

These are my chains I usually wear them to work. Some of them are hand made by me. The purple bead chain is one of my absolute favourites. 

This is something I got from my grandmother (it's not gold). To date it's the most beautiful necklace I have ever worn. It's old, not heavy, the crystals or whatever embedded to it are still shining like diamonds and is drop dead gorgeous!!!  

This chain is one of my favourites too and I MUST take a little time to write about this cuff bracelet because it's no ordinary bracelet. It's something I wear regularly no matter what my dress code is. I have been wearing it for nearly 5 years and I'm still loving it. 

These are my other bracelets. I stick to my metal cuff most of the time and often forget to wear these ;) 

So what's your confession? Any other jewellery junkies like me out there? Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Hope you all enjoy reading my first blog post :) (first of many, hopefully)

Love and light
