Some of you may have already spotted my new earrings in yesterday’s outfit post. I have been obsessed with the “mise en dior” tribal earrings ever since I saw Anna wear them – she was one of the first to have them and I’ve spotted them a ton since then. The more I saw them, the more I fell in love. I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the modern take on such a classic piece. Also, they can be worn as “normal” pearls as well, which I like. The tribal earrings have been sold out non-stop and I had basically given up on owning them any time soon. Then, this past Saturday I walked into Dior and they had one last pair left, because a girl on the waiting list never showed up to get them. Sometimes we have to get lucky, right?
While my style isn’t too wild usually, I still like the idea of mixing unexpected items, like fancy jewelry with super easy sneakers and a patterned top. As you know, I simply adore statement jewelry, whether it is big necklaces, stacked bracelets or sparkly earrings – they always work for me. Even paired with a casual mosaic top and converse. Currently, I am absolutely obsessed with Anton Heunis pieces. You may remember my first pair from my NYE look, but this gold and white version is simply too die for! Not to mention perfect for summer.
What is it about girls and jewels? Not without reason is there a saying that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. While I only own a few “real” pieces of jewelry, which were all super special gifts from either my dad or boyfriend, I own a fairly extensive collection of “fashion jewelry”. I like to add a bit of bling to almost every outfit I wear, whether it is a big statement necklace, golden watch or sparkly earrings … just can’t get enough! And it is such an easy way to dress up a simple look. For my April wishlist, I found some stunning pieces on GIRISSIMA.com, which are not only absolutely beautiful, but also affordable. Win-win situation, right? Which combination is your favorite?
As you guys know, I am a firm believer in cleaning out your closet at least once per year (preferably every 6 months). Even though I have started shopping much more consciously over the past year or so, I still come across items in my closet that I hardly ever wear. Just a few weeks ago, a friend told me about Glamloop.com, which is basically a market place to sell and shop for designer and high quality items. They’ve seriously got everything – Chanel, YSL, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, …
Anyway, I was instantly drawn to the idea of having a platform to sell a few pieces that were simply too nice to take to a regular flea market. Especially because everything is checked for authenticity before it goes live – so no fakes or fraud! Glamloop offers two different options for selling, you can either choose SELF service or RUNDUM/ concierge service in bigger cities. The SELF Service is where you decided which items need to go and for how much you want to sell them. For the RUNDUM/ concierge service, a fashion consultant will actually come to your home to pick up the items and help you choose and price them. This is perfect for getting the most money out of the treasures your closet holds. And the best part: You don’t have to worry about the annoying uploading and taking pictures. All you have to do is put all the items you want to sell in a box, send them to Glamloop in Munich and wait for them to go online.
