As the title suggests, this blog is about some of my favourite girlie & sparkly things that I have acquired. Either found on jobs, Mr M has brought home for me to peruse or in the case of jewellery, items I have managed to “liberate” from his “to sort” stock – shhh don’t tell him!!
First up, my shiny, sparkly diamante cocktail clutch bag.
There is no label, so I don’t know who the manufacturer was but it is my go to party bag, it can glam up any outfit & adds that little touch of vintage charm.
If the diamante clutch is not quite right then I also have this gorgeous vintage 1950’s gold beaded clutch by French designer, Lucienne Offenthal.
Both these bags are pretty dinky & can just about hold a iPhone, credit card & a lipstick, but then what more does a girl need!!
I am yet to use my next item, I absolutely love it & can’t bear to part with it. But being a statement piece, it’s a bit bigger than I usually wear & I have not found the right outfit to wear it with as yet.
This aquamarine, amber & diamante rhinestone choker was made by Sajen Dafri, who was making costume jewellery in Toronto, Canada in the 1940’s & 50’s.
Lastly is my favourite ring (well, technically 2nd favourite as my mum’s platinum & diamond bow engagement ring is my most prized possession but that did not come from a job)……….
A diamond with sapphire’s set in 18ct white gold, this ring dates from between 1930’s – 50’s. I’m a sucker for the colour blue (see above choker!) maybe that has something to do with the three birthstones associated with my birthday in December: Tanzanite, Zircon, and Turquoise & every girl needs diamonds right?
