New buys from ALKE!

There were newbies out by ALKE¬†a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t help myself…. so I bought three new necklaces ūüėÄ

What I really like about this handmade jewellery site is that the items can be personalised, making them one of a kind. The owner is a close friend of mine which also makes things a lot easier for me. I have been finding it difficult to get long length necklaces for myself and so she customised a few pieces to suit my taste. Take a look!

All three beautiful pieces costed me a total of Rs. 1,700 which is pretty darn decent. Surprisingly, my husband (who does not like costume jewellery and anything of that sort) loves all three of these pieces as well (yay me :D).

Sparkly shoes

New shoes

A girl can’t resist a new pair of shoes, especially when they’re sparkly and look as good!

These are a pair I bought some time last year in India while wedding shopping but never got around to wearing until last night to dinner with my husband.

Detail

I love the detail on every inch of it and the fact that I can pair it with a pair of jeans and accentuate a simple casual outfit into looking a bit more glam like.
