Ringing In The Inspiration With I Love Crafty!

Saturday 26 January 2013

Normally I will build an outfit around a key piece of clothing, sometimes I'll build one around my shoes or a bag, but rarely will I create a look from one solitary piece of jewellery. Jewellery is usually something that accentuates an outfit rather than inspiring one right? Not today!

I was gifted the amazing RAD ring (£12) from I Love Crafty, a piece from the hot new Modern Romance collection, and it's been something of a muse to me since I held it in my hand! The collection features double sided pieces in bold red and gold heart shapes etched with cool, old school phrases on them in our fave Old English script and the odd aciiiiiiiiiid smiley! Check it . . . 

I was so taken with my new ring I built today's look around it! It has a 90's feel to it so naturally I thought, what would Cher Horowitz do? My computerised revolving wardrobe selected a statement mini, oversized coat (it's way classic), mini backpack and cute hat - obviously!

Outfit: Hat - River Island, Top - Wildfox Couture, Skirt - Missguided, Coat - Reiss, Bag - H&M, Tights - Pretty Polly, Boots - Steve Madden, Ring - c/o I Love Crafty.

I so need my fringe trimming, I look like I can't see! Anyhoo, I snagged the coat in the Cheshire Oaks Reiss outlet store for a nifty £98 from £249 (Josh would be proud of my thriftiness) and the gold skirt was a sporadic Missguided sale purchase that has paid off big time, I've wore it so much that I'm considering ordering the silver version! The bag just called to me, as a nineties teen I had so many of these mini backpacks but by '96 they were totally over and the epitome of last season so I think I flung them all. Fashion does indeed move in cycles but I have to admit that I didn't think the 90's would come back as it was hardly epic at the time!

Without the ring I doubt I would've put this red top with the gold skirt, ever, but I think it looks, well, RAD?! I Love Crafty is a feast for girls who love pretty perspex jewelz and statement pieces. I'm still majorly in love with everything from the past collections too, you have to check them all out on Etsy - the Feline Fatale and I'm Really A Mermaid collections being my faves!

J - Totally Rad.
