Favourite vintage earrings

This weekend I thought I’d arrange my jewellery organizer (particularly the one that holds my earrings). I know I haven’t done anything of this sort before so I thought I’ll feature some of my favourite vintage earrings in one post. Hope you all like it!

This is a pair I bought online and I absolutely love. I actually had forgotten about this cute pair until a few days when I was looking for a small pouch and found this pair inside. I can’t believe I forgot all about it because a few years these were the only pairs I’d wear on a regular basis but oh well, I’m glad I found them anyways. They are exactly how starfish are, with the grainy texture and all that and work well with most of my basic every day looks which is why I wore them pretty much all the time.

Now this is a pair I got at Forever21, in New York two years ago. I still love it because it has a timeless look to it and can be paired with almost any evening outfit. It’s black and gold but not overly shiny or anything of the sort which is another plus for me because I do not like overly shiny pieces of jewellery.

This is another one of my most favourite pairs and also another one I got online. I love tiny pairs like this with tons of detail. This almost has an ethnic tribal vibe to it but the colour and make make it ideal to pair with even a modern contemporary outfit. I love pairing this with an evening dress in black or navy blue. Then again, I’ve also worn this during the day and it works well with some of my work wear.

Lastly, here is another online buy. This is an absolute favourite because it screams vintage! The 3D floral detail adds a very feminine element to my look and I love pairing this with a floral kurta or even a solid coloured tunic for a casual yet pretty day look. I should probably add that this is super light and does not weight down my ears at all. Super convenient in that sense and I simply love it.

New buy and then some…

Ramadan is almost over and Eid will be celebrated tomorrow, so I wanted to go and get myself a pretty little bauble. I’m not one to splurge all too much on jewellery because I feel like they go out of trend all too often and sometimes don’t always complement my outfits. I am therefore very careful and picky with my selections. However, the idea this time was to find a stringy kind of long necklace, preferably with a large pendant of some sort. I know that for the most part when one is picky and too choosy, you’ll never find what you want but one of the online jewellery stores I shop at in Colombo was hosting a sale and I thought I should head over and see if they’d have something suitable for me.

Dressup is an online store that offers vintage jewellery, baubles, trinkets and more. I’ve shopped with them on multiple occasions have not been disappointed with my purchases. Most of their items are sourced from abroad so you know you’re getting a quality product that’s worth the price.

Here’s a look at what I recently purchased over the weekend! I absolutely love it! It was more than perfect because it fitted the ideology of what I wanted. My darling husband was more than kind to buy it as a gift for me which made it all the more better. It’s got a long gold strand necklace and a large filigree like leaf pendant at the end of it. It’s not the too heavy kind which I’m happy about it as well and has a very contemporary feel to it more than a vintage. I can’t wait to pair it with some outfits in the future.

I’ve bought necklaces from Dressup before as well so I thought I’ll give you guys a look at them.
