Blue Topaz Cluster Earrings

I just discovered a cool DIY jewellery site you’ll definitely want to check out. New on the market, Shenya let’s customers create their own pieces of jewellery — from bracelets to earrings and necklaces, all with the simple click of a button (I’m told rings and hair accessories are coming). The way it works is you drag and drop the pieces you want onto a digital canvas and after you can publish to let others see what you’ve created (or buy!). It’s also really cool because you can see the price upfront, which is particularly good if you’re working with a strict budget. If you don’t think you’re super creative or just want to see what others have made, you can browse through other people’s designs (like these Blue Topaz earrings I found).

Did you watch the Oscars last Sunday?  We picked our fav looks from Gwenyth and Scarlett to Halley Berry, providing ideas on how you can show off these celebrity styles on your walk down the aisle (without paying the celebrity prices of course).

Day 53: Kate’s Family Photos Revealed

We’re used to seeing Kate Middleton in sleek coats, chic dresses (Issa, anyone?) and feathery fascinators, which is why it’s interesting to catch a glimpse of the little girl she used to be. The royal family has just released childhood snapshots of Kate (like this one taken on a family holiday when she was three), as well as an official biography of the bride-to-be, on their official Royal Wedding website. The biography sheds further light on Kate’s life in the pre-William era, including details about her gap year (the year between high school and university), which she spent studying in Florence. Furthermore, we are able to learn more about Kate’s role in the family business—her responsibilities at Party Pieces (a company owned by her parents) reportedly included catalogue design, marketing and photography.

Fabulous Flats

Fashion & Beauty » Fashion & Beauty » Wedding Shoes

Add another rumour to the Royal Wedding list: Kate Middelton is reported to be wearing flats on her wedding day. We have always loved the idea of flats with a wedding dress and though this is probably not a move Kate will make, if the flats are a poppy colour, we love the look even more. Just spied these cuties at Kate Spade and am in love. The pink patent, the spade detail at the toe and the retro shape are super-sweet (note these Nera flats also come in a champagne/gold colour too) . Picturing these with a girly tea-length dress and a whimsical fascinator. Just thinking of breezy, easy summer weddings….
