I can still remember the first encounter I had with luxury jewellery brand, Pandora. We were just coming into the Summer month’s when I was invited to brunch for a private viewing of their Rose Gold collection. Fast forward two years and I’m still head over heals in love with the pieces now as I was then. My Pandora collection is growing by the day and I’m excited to welcome this majestic ‘Hearts of Pandora’ necklace to the family. I have a love for hollow circle jewellery and this little beauty is one of a kind. It features a detailed print of the Pandora logo on the back which can be worn as a second option. I often wear it as a stand alone piece or mix it with various necklaces that I have. For today I decided to keep all jewellery dedicated to Pandora in order to share the entire collection with all of you.
There’s nothing more majestic than receiving that ‘order shipped’ email. If I’m in work or out I literally bound my family to the house so that I don’t miss the package! Sounds pretty selfish I know but when I see that “sorry we missed you” card I could cry my eyes out. Anyway, on Monday I was ecstatic to come home from work to see my Beauty Bay order waiting for me. I finally got round to ordering the magnificent Rose Golden Luxury Set Vol. 3 from the iconic makeup brush brand, Zoeva.
Friends, food and fashion – the perfect alliteration in my opinion. Last weekend I indulged in all three as I was very kindly invited along to Deanes at Queens for an afternoon fashion show by German brand, Evelin Brandt. The Lisburn Road based boutique showcased their finest SS16 looks from a collection of designers. As we were in awe of each look, a three main course was beautifully presented to us (I may have ordered a cocktail or two!). Myself and my friend, Ruth from Welcome to Willow Lane enjoyed a good old catch up. We had the pleasure of dining with mum of two blogger, Anna from Blossoming Birds.
Christmas in October?! I know what you’re thinking but within the world of fashion, you always need to stay that little bit ahead to keep your clientele captivated. Pandora undoubtedly have a huge following and come Christmas, they are the ultimate destination for timeless and treasured gifts. Celebrating the launch of their new flagship store on Grafton Street, Dublin and the preview of their festive jewels, it was a very merry evening.
The delicious treats were a fab starting point before making our way around the exclusive launch. I’m a real sucker for sweets ‘n’ treats at events, they add such a personalised touch and fuel us for of sugar before the grand unveiling. The iced cookies were as delicious as they look, they worked beautifully with refreshing cocktails and wine we were sampling.
The delightful Vogue Williams was our DJ for the evening helping to set the mood with trendy tunes. Pandora really did go all out for this event with Dublin’s finest fashionista’s, socialites and media personalities and little old me! Haha.
Now.. down to business. The theme for the evening was a vibrant blue undertone against the crisp white interior making it a firm favourite for us social media addicts. A white wooden Christmas Tree was the centre piece as magnificent and delicate Pandora jewellery draped beautifully from the branches. I don’t know about any of you but that’s definitely my kind of tree, the room was perfectly sparkling giving all of us that warm festive feeling. I’ve been really into rings this season, I tend to go through phases with my jewellery. Last year I was all about delicate necklaces and now it’s rings. This beautiful trio of silver diamante’s is such a pretty combination, the layering trend is massive and this little set is the perfect gift.
As I’ve previously said, our evening was centered around the gorgeous Christmas charms. I have a weakness for novelty jewellery, Halloween and the festive season is a popular time for my collection! The detailed charms are just so pretty, the red present was my personal favourite. I love how Pandora mix colourful piece’s with silver charms, it helps to keep things fresh and unique. I’m wanting to build my jewellery collection and I have my eye on the gorgeous circle Pandora ring. I don’t really have any silver piece’s so I think this one will look good mixed with my gold and rose gold rings.
Before leaving, I was very kindly gifted with a voucher and purchased this rose gold feather ring. I’ve had my eye on this little beauty for a while now after first seeing it at the launch of their rose gold collection back in the summer (you can read the post here). I have the necklace and wanted the ring to match. It’s such a flattering piece and I absolutely love it. Rose gold is definitely my favourite jewellery material, it’s such a beautiful warm tone and always looks so flattering.
Thank you so much to Aimee and Pandora for having me down. It was such a magical evening and the beautiful jewellery was worth the journey. I can’t wait to start building my collection, first stop… the rings!
In my last OOTD post (you can read it here) I mentioned how I have been going back to more neutral tones with my looks. It’s so refreshing taking my outfits back to basics and this Next Camel Coat is no exception. I’ve never owned a coat like this before; it seems to be very on trend for us bloggers! So I was very excited to style it with some of my keys pieces from my wardrobe and channel my best Autumn appropriate lady.
Along with the coat, these fab monk shoes also from Next are new additions to my A/W wardrobe. I’ve been wanting to branch out with my footwear and try a more preppy style. When it comes to shoes, I need a supportive sole as I can’t wear a completely flat pair. I have the worst feet that are extremely high maintenance so proper shoe choices are a must for me. These black patent beauties are by far thee most comfortable shoes ever. They are the perfect flats for Autumn and are easily styled. I opted for my trusty Zara bag to complete my prep based look.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the letter ‘N’ prop?! Haha. The fabulous Titanic Quarter is my new favourite location for shooting looks. The architecture is out of this world and my obsession with water based details continues. I also wore my Zara biker jeans and monochrome top to complete the look.
I paired my favourite necklaces with my simplistic look. My treasured Emozioni coin pendent and Pandora longline necklace is a classic combination and personal favourite of mine. The feather piece is from their rose gold collection, it’s my go to necklace at the moment. What I love most about this coat is the strong structure. It is beautifully chic and a popular coat during the autumn/winter months. I’m planning on bringing this beauty with me to Berlin in a few week’s. I’m excited to style it using various colors and prints, I think a dark demin shirt would look amazing under it for a more street style look.
(If you order before 12pm midnight, you can order free to your local store for collection. Visit Next online for more details… Happy Shopping!)
What do you lovelies think of the camel coat trend then?! Sometimes when piece’s are a huge favourite within the blogging scene I tend to stray away, but this one I’ve given into!
