 "I have enough jewelry” - said no one ever

Welcome back FI readers!

Don’t know about you but purple totally rocks my socks. Holy Toledo! My happiest moments are when I'm clothed in purple. It’s my it color, my go to color. I truly am purple crazy in case you haven’t figured it out already. I think its powerful and punchy. Very uplifting too. Pair it with red and I am in heaven. Pair it with nude and I’d go pop faster than a balloon, hehe.

And I really went pop for this gorgeous piece of jewelry kindly sent to me from Takai By Angela. If you’ve been reading my blog you should be familiar with this brand. I have raved about them here and gushed about them here. Gosh let’s just stop for a moment and stare at this piece. Yes darlings take a couple seconds and drool over this piece. Alright now, snap out of it, hehe.

It's a beautiful floral design, beaded with Amethyst Crystal glass, Gemstones and Crystal beads. All naturally and delicately hand crafted for today’s woman. I've shown a couple options to accessorize this piece. With an orange bag for a pop of color and with a purple bag as well. The orange looked bold and out of control gorgeous while the purple was playful and cool. Ultimately the mood you’re in will determine how you style a piece like this. Where you are headed too. I love the dainty almost tear drop matching earrings that come with it. 

I honestly love stopping by Takai By Angela for the most breathtaking pieces. Have a  look at this deep blue piece or this multicolored floral gemstone necklace. Amazing to say the least! They stock a wide range of unique pieces to fit every budget and every style. Remember that saying. Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t buy? Yes that one! Don’t be in that position. Pick up what you like while you’re over at Takai by Angela. After all, I have enough jewelry said no one ever. 

I went pop yet again for this gorgeous layered skirt, a gift from a great friend of mine Chinny for my 1 year bloggerversary coming up in 2 weeks. (Umm, yes I’m now accepting congratulatory gifts as of today lol). Impeccable timing since I was shopping for purple bottoms anyways. It’s not only full and layered, it also has a sheen to it and offers just the right amount of oomph. Full skirts are so feminine and elegant. Add a floppy hat to the mix for a playful and really cool twist. Much as I tried I couldn’t get my hot lil hands on any floppy hats that I liked enough.

Full skirts of this nature look best worn with very simple classic tops. Tucked in for a very clean and polished look. Crop tops on the other hand are so trendy and a perfect match for a high waisted skirt. Whatttt??? You know I had to eeny meeny miny moe to decide on one, hehe. I ended up wearing it with the crop white zippered and very edgy blazer.

An ultra luxurious skirt like this one could easily and very surprisingly be a versatile piece. I bet you’re wondering where I’m going with this but yes, you heard me right, it really could be a versatile piece. You can pair it with a simple silk tank top for a black tie event. Add a scarf or a simple necklace and a clutch to finish off the look. Scarlet lipstick and matching nails will get you there even faster. You can also pair it with a cashmere top for dinner out with friends. It’s however not your typical lift up and walk through the garden full skirt. Not that versatile, hehe.

I trust you had a great week. I was sick as a dog, managed to smile at the camera tho, :). How are you spending today? Hosting or being hosted? Happy 4th of July. Have fun!

Amen, so many thanks. But I too can definitely see this mounted and spinning away. Hahaa. It's quite the look if I must say so myself. People stared. Some asked me if I was a model. Some called out 'you're killing the game'. I smiled a lot of smiles. Sending much love, thank you. Xx...
