My Favourite Things. Chapter 5
What outfit is complete without accessories, and what accessory doesn't complete an outfit? For me, the way I accessorize my pieces of clothing, changes the whole essence of the look, from indian to western, from western to indian, and most of the times, something very very different; there are also some days, when I don't wear any accessories, and let those clothes speak for themselves.
I have been an accessory junkie since I was little, and would end up wearing all that I had in my little drawer, and by everything, I mean those two to five plastic pearl strings, and those two huge rings.
Of course, now my tastes have improved much more, and I don't mind rocking the minimal look compared to the house of bling that I used to become.
Over the years, I have collected pieces of jewellery, some gifted from my mother, or some pre-owned by her, and every one of those pieces, are never leaving my jewellery box. But, there are also newer pieces, which I love as much as the old, and use all the time.
At first, I thought of maybe segregating different kinds of jewellery, but then I realised, that if I do that, it will take about four to five blogs, just to talk about each of the types, and how to style them. So, I took photographs of only some of my jewellery, just to give you a hint.
I don't know what I would do without necklaces! I have a soft side for chunky necklaces, and always get carried away by the size of the necklace, and that's why I don't own many thin and minimal pieces. Now, out of these, if you look in the first picture, there is a necklace with a bear claw, which is really really old, and will always be my absolute favourite. Then, there is that black bib kind of a necklace, which was owned by my mother some years ago, but she gave it to me, because well, I took it! The others are much more new; and I almost forgot, that owl and fish pendant long necklaces, have been my oldest friends.
Initially, I would hate chokers, because I thought my double chin looked big, but then, once I bought my first choker, I fell in love, and couldn't care about anything else.
If you would have already seen in my previous blogs, almost whenever there is an Indian outfit going on, there are bangles involved. I do have a few not-Indian bracelets, but I prefer wearing bangles anytime (not that I don't love my bracelets).
Coming to earrings, I do have quiet a few, but I usually don't wear earrings as much as my necklaces. It is only very recently that I have started to wear earrings regularly, and let me tell you, I am enjoying it.
These were just some of my pieces, some of which are very old, while some are relatively new. I don't think my collection ends here, and I still hope to collect some more.
Now, I know bags are included in the Accessories category too, but I thought they deserve a whole other blog!
Until next time.....STAY SASSY!
