all that glitters & sparkles.

On Thursday I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful event at Henri J. Sillam to launch the new “get animalicious” collection. I met up with the lovely Anna before for drinks in the 1st district and then we headed over to the jewelry store (or should I say boutique?? I am completely obsessed with the interior which was re-done last year). To be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect at a cocktail-party / jewelry presentation, but I was definitely surprised in a good way. The owner and designer, Mr. Sillam himself, took the time to tell us about his inspiration and favorite pieces. I even got to try on a dreamy wedding ring and my favorite piece, the strawberry ring :) While sipping on champagne, eating tramezzinis and chatting with fellow bloggies (Anna, Teresa, Maria, Vanessa & Mike) it was certainly a nice touch to be surrounded by a fair amount of diamonds.

{a ring that I absolutely fell in love with and am thinking about getting as a reward for when I finish my bachelor-thesis … reminds me a little of YSL}

{finally wore my River Island snake print dress, unfortunately I was so mezmerized by the jewelry that I forgot to take better pictures}

{Anna brought her gorgeous sequined LV bag}

{the main piece of the “get animalicious” collection, worth just short of 300.000€ … counting over 4.000 diamonds}

{Evi, who invited us to the event, wearing the crocodile collier}

{another gorgeous piece, the strawberry ring … WANT}

{outfit details, thanks to Anna for the picture. Btw, can you spot the “future” wedding ring I picked out??}

  15. Love the advice about writing about what happens “behind the scenes” and personal experience; these help to humanize the story and keep readers coming back.
