Guest Contribution : Picking the Perfect Pearls for your Dress

Whilst weddings are a momentous and joyous occasion, one that you have probably envisaged since you were a little girl, the run-up can be stressful, time-consuming, even all-consuming!  Whilst there is enormous amounts of preparations, organisation, guest politics, who to invite, who’s vegetarian? coeliac? gluten-free? – you get the point! – Relieve some of the pressure with these stunning jewels which are guaranteed to pull your wedding attire together and ensure your day goes smoothly (well in the looks department at least!)

Yes it is a given that the wedding dress plays a huge factor in the bride’s overall look but coming in a close second is her choice of jewellery as this can either make or break a look.  Whilst there is a whole treasure trove of choice, one of the most popular of all jewels are still pearls.

Pearls have retained their status as the go-to wedding jewel as they have a perennial elegance that never looks dated.  Pearls can be worn with modern dresses or more traditional designs.  These lustrous, highly versatile beauties are one of the few gemstones which appeal to all generations.

Most brides are interested in achieving a highly sophisticated look which oozes understated glamour and this is easily achievable with pearl jewellery.

TraditionalTraditional

If you are opting for a traditional dress with a fitted and bodice with a flowing, ball gown-esque skirt then a classic pearl necklace is the perfect option to create harmony throughout your look and pull everything together.  Choose a bridal pearl necklace from Winterson made with the finest cultured saltwater Akoya pearls for a look that exudes luxury, glamour and ultimately sophistication.  These pearls, traditionally cultured in Japan, should be round, with a sharp lustre and pinky white colour. Sitting just below the collarbone, the length of this necklace will bring the focus to your face whilst creating a demure and ethereal aura around you.

 

 ModernModern

If you have decided on a more modern, slinky and ‘bodycon’ dress, then I would suggest a simple pearl pendant.  A luxurious white South Sea pearl and diamond pendant necklace will perfectly balance out your wedding look but will not detract from the dress.  With a silky lustre which radiates beauty, there is little wonder why pearls are the wedding jewel of choice.  This exquisite piece (featured below) also features a dazzling diamond set above the pearl to add to the luxury of this pendant.  This piece will not only see through your wedding day in style, but will also become a firm favourite in your jewellery wardrobe.

 

BohemianBohemian

For the romantic, slightly quirky, bohemian bride, choose freshwater coin pearls.  These type of pearls have a distinctive, slightly irregular and jaunty, baroque shape.  Each pearl is unique thus creating a carefree, laidback look rather than a more traditional, polished style.  If this is the look you are trying to pull off then this White Freshwater Coin Pearl Bracelet would look stunning on the wrist of any lace-clad, billowy-sleeved bride.

Avril Lavigne Models Her New Line For 2012

Hiya Poutlings

The interwebs has been flooded with loads of pictures of Avril Lavigne wearing her new line of clothing, ABBEY DAWN for 2012. I must say, I’m impressed by some of the clothing, its unique, and I do like some of it. The shoes are WOW. I want some of these shoes. As some of you may be aware, I used to love Avril Lavigne, and parts me deep down inside still do, when she is not doing silly things, ahem, green hair, yes, I received a bit of slack about saying that it was a blonde move in the past about that, but I’m sorry, GREEN hair does not make a statement if your hair is naturally blonde, it looks like you’ve been swimming in chlorinated pools and well, AHEM, shaving one side of head which is all very blantant in these new promo images… I don’t care if you don’t like that I don’t like it, but really, I think it makes her stunning hair (when its not green…) LOOK LIKE SHITE.

…but try look past that, look at THE SHOES, and THE SKELETON DRESS. I want those. I do. hahaha.

But anywayyy… Here are some images of Avril wearing her new collection.

A penny for your thoughts?

Weekend Trend Crush: Pearls

Pearls, Pearls, Pearls…

What I love about pearls is the fact that you could literally wear a dustbin bag with your pearls and look like a million bucks (but obviously this is not advisable unless you are a homeless person). So this weekend your mission is to look absolutely fabulous wearing your pearls with your favourite outfit!

And remember – THE MORE THE MERRIER!!!




Have an awesome weekend Pouters!
Peace and love xoxox
