Over the past few weeks, Topshop's Freedom jewellery range has exploded with massive chunky chains, rope necklaces, hard acrylic flowers and jewels. Everytime I walk past the jewellery stands I turn into a magpie and feel the need to hoard all the glittery goodness that's on show. The bigger necklaces are quite pricey and so I've been easing myself in with the slightly less expensive pieces (although I can tell when I next get paid I'll be satisfying my magpie needs and buying some more!)
This quite literal daisy chain is my absolute bloody favourite necklace I've ever ever EVER laid eyes on. I bought it a week or 2 ago when I was invited by my friend Shelley to go to her university ball (Oxford Brookes) where Bastille were playing (more details and photos to follow!). I wore it with a minty green coloured lace skater dress from Primark and plain black courts. It just went so well with what I was wearing, and made the whole outfit look so much more summery. I can just tell it will go with so much of my wardrobe, and it will be worn a lot over summer. The one thing I do have to say is that it's quite fragile. I've had to take my first one back because three of the daisy's just fell off! I might reinforce this one, and treat it with extra care. I can't bear the thought of this breaking!
I wasn't sure about this when I first bought it, in fact I bought it in a bit of a rush when I was on my way to London for a friends birthday. I had forgotten to pack ANY jewellery and so on a bit of a whim just picked up the busiest chain related piece of jewellery I could find. However, I've come to realise that it just works with anything. It's got gold and silver chains which was a bit off-putting for me as I'm normally one to turn my nose up at the thought of combining metallic colours, but actually it doesn't look odd or out of place.
I can't remember if I posted about this necklace before, I know I definitely posted it on my Instagram account. I have so much love for this stag skull necklace, it's so simple but at the same time quite intricate. I like that it's on a thin delicate chain, it's easy to hide under collars whilst still showing the main detail of the antlers. I've been neglecting it recently since my purchase of the daisy chain necklace but after spending time photographing it I've fallen in love with it all over again.
Have any of you been splurging on the new Topshop jewellery? Where would you suggest getting similar pieces but at a slightly cheaper price?
